Kate Gosselin's competitors on Dancing with the Stars aren't interested in kicking her while she's down.

After Gosselin's rough Monday night showing, some cast mates pledged their support.

"I always tell Evan, if something happens, you forget, you kick me in the face, whatever -- just keep going! So I was glad [Kate] kept going, I think everyone was," Evan Lysacek's partner Anna Trebunskaya told UsMagazine.com.

Prior to Gosselin's "I'm Still Standing," number, a tense rehearsal clip showed her partner Tony Dovolani threatening to quit. And during their disastrous performance, the 35-year-old mom missed steps, mouthed the counts and rolled her eyes, garnering a dismal 15 points and a "nightmare" grade from judge Bruno Tonioli.

"You're looking at a maybe one-minute package," Louis van Amstel, Neicy Nash's partner, told Us of the buzzed-about rehearsal video. "You don't know what happened before or after that. We want to support them and everyone no matter what."

Mark Ballas -- dancing with Shannen Doherty this season -- cheered Gosselin on as she and Dovolani floundered. "You can do it Kate!" Ballas shouted. "Come on Kate!"

Gosselin later defended herself to Entertainment Tonight. "The reality is, it is very, very tough. I am not a dancer...The fact that I didn't fall is truly amazing."
