We already got a glimpse of Kate Gosselin's less-than-charming demeanor on her reality show, "Jon & Kate Plus 8." Now the attitude is back in full force, and the reality star has already earned the title of "total diva" on the set of "Dancing With the Stars."
Gosselin is snubbing other contestants and behaving coldly to crew members, sources told the New York Post. Word of her diva-esque behavior got out, prompting Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir to pull out of talks about appearing on the show. He reportedly did not want to have to work with Gosselin.
"Kate doesn't want anything to do with other contestants," a "DWTS" source said. "While there's a lot of camaraderie among the crew and other stars including Pamela Anderson, Kate has set herself apart. ... She wants to be queen bee."
Maybe it was the special treatment Gosselin got from "DWTS" that went to her head. The show is allowing her to rehearse in Pennsylvania with her partner in a makeshift studio in her basement so that she can be near her kids.
We can see if Gosselin's performance on the dance floor is worthy of her diva behavior when "DWTS" season 10 premieres, Monday, March 22 on ABC.
