But the reality mom, 35, couldn't survive a day on the job, snipes the president and CEO of the National Solid Wastes Management Association.

"She would have to be in shape to handle the work. She could not do it right now," Bruce J. Parker tells UsMagazine.com. "You're constantly moving. If you're a helper, you're picking up cans, moving quickly, particularly in heat and humidity and the coldness of the winter months. You have to be in peak conditioning."

But Parker says he "wasn't offended" by the former Dancing With the Stars finalist's comments.

"I'm sure it's uncomfortable for her doing that," he says of garbage collecting. "But she'd get in great physical condition. If she worked at that job for a month or so, believe me, she would mambo like you'd never seen her before!"

He recommends Gosselin give it a try.

"It's a good career for her to do. If she shows promise and she does the job well... she could move up in any company," he says. Plus, "These helpers and drivers make a decent salary."
