After a rocky rehearsal spat in which Tony Dolovani quit on Kate Gosselin, he says things are going much better this week.
"I just got done with our first practice," he Twittered Wednesday. "The Paso is going great :-)"
Despite two terrible performances (one judge called Gosselin, 35, a "nightmare" on the dance floor), she and Dolovani, 36, managed to survive the first round.
To make it to finals, he recently told Access Hollywood that she needs to trust him more.
She is slowly coming around.
"She's starting to understand regardless of how tough I may be … I'm on her side," he said. "I'm actually trying to make her look good … I'm not actually going against her. I'm not trying to cause any problems for her. All I'm trying to do is make her look good."
Gosselin said that despite Dolovani being a "great" teacher, they are bound to clash occasionally.
"He has as much pressure as a teacher as I have as a student," she told Access. "It's a hard, hard thing."
