"[Daughter] Mady asked if she can vote for me? I said, 'Yes, pls do,'" Gosselin told Kimmmel, adding that she told "the little kids" to vote too.

So far, Gosselin said she's done three days of practicing.

She said her partner Tony Dovolani will travel back with her to her Wernersville, Pa., hometown, where she will practice on a makeshift floor in her basement while her kids are home or sleeping.

When they're at school, 'I'll go to a local studio," Gosselin told Kimmel. "The whole goal is obviously to be at home as much as I can and I'll come home back-and-forth each week. If I can cook dinner and dance, I'll be doing really well."

As for her partner, she said she didn't get to pick him.

"I did suggest one person, and they said he was too quiet for me," she said. "I don't know what they were trying to say!"

But she said she is glad to be working with Dovolani because he is "a very positive person. Even when I mess up really, really bad – which is a lot – he still has something positive to say."

Even though she said she's never played any sports as a kid — "I was never coordinated enough, which is a problem with dancing, but I can run," she said — Gosselin is staying strong.

"I am going to give it my all!" she told Kimmel.
