Kate Gosselin once again graces the cover of People magazine this week. Kate spoke to the magazine for the first time since being chosen as one of the 11 contestants of season 10 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
For those of you who haven’t had an opportunity to read the interview yet, I will recap some of the more interesting comments Kate shared. (Lily was already kind enough to share a few tidbits!)
-“I hope even the moms who hate me will say, ‘Oh, this is so foreign to her, and look at her willingness to be up there.’ But I can’t promise anyone I can pull this off.”
-“I feel my job is actually beneficial because it allows me large blocks of time at home with the kids that I wouldn’t have if I worked 9 to 5.”
-“I talk to my kids up to 10 times per day. When my phone quacks–that’s my ringtone for them, a duck quack–no matter what time it is or where I am, I dive on that phone to answer that call!”
-“Learning to dance has meant facing my biggest fears, and it has brought out the hugest insecurities in me, ever.”
-“…I’m married to my kids essentially…I’m very aware of the fact that all decisions are on me. The domino effect of what I decide today is going to affect tomorrow and the next day and so on.”
-“If I last two weeks on the show, I’ve shown my kids that hard work and perseverance pays off.”
Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
The only topic generating more interest in Kate’s world than DWTS, is predictably, Kate’s hair. Kate returned to Ted Gibson’s salon this week and had her much discussed hair extensions removed. The results looked like this:
Some have speculated this is a wig. If it is, I think it’s a pretty good one. I think the cut and color are flattering. What do you think? In any case, Kate was back to the more toussled look of late as of this weekend.
In an event that I would imagine was probably booked before she landed her current gig on DWTS, Kate appeared before a standing room only audience of more than a 1,000 at the South Bend Women’s Expo this Saturday to discuss children’s health and her own infertility struggles. The South Bend Tribune has a nice write-up on Kate’s appearance and the enthusiasm she generated.
