DWTS Alum Kate Gosselin: “I Clearly Cannot Dance!”

 Adam Larkey/ABC

Kate Gosselin's disastrous Dancing With the Stars days continue to haunt her.

At Friday's Barnstable Brown Derby Party in Louisville, Ky. celebrating the Kentucky Derby, the mom of eight told Us Weekly competing on the ABC show's tenth season was an eye-opening experience.

Gosselin, 36, told Us she's been watching the show's current season — where her former pro partner, Tony Dovolani, danced with Wendy Williams — but insists she'd never set foot back in the ballroom.

"Never again," she emphatically told Us. "Not because it was a bad experience though — it was an awesome experience — but I clearly cannot dance."

The Kate Plus 8 star's revelation is a notion long realized by DWTS fans — and Dovolani himself.

During one heated DWTS rehearsal, Dovolani brought Gosselin to tears and told her "I quit," although he later publicly apologized. (Insiders told Us that he couldn't "wait to get rid of her," and loudly complained to producers about how "impossible" Gosselin was to work with.)

Finishing in eighth place on the season won by Nicole Scherzinger, Gosselin returned for the show's spring 2010 finale and attempted to silence her haters.

"I would guess that 90 percent of my audience doesn't like me," she said before performing a paso doble to Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi." "I'm so controversial.

"I could stand there in the middle of the floor and people would [still] judge me," she added. "I would still get picked apart to pieces — so I might as well have fun with it."
