Kelly Osbourne thinks everyone is being too hard on Kate Gosselin for competing on Dancing With the Stars.

"Yeah, it's going to be hard because she has eight kids, but at the same time, people really need to give her a break," Osbourne, who came in third place last season, told at the Odd Molly flagship store opening in West Hollywood.

"She has eight kids to feed, remember that," Osbourne, 25, continued. "And if she is going to take a job, why not do one that is fun? She is going to have a blast!"

Osbourne says she thinks Gosselin, 34 and partner Tony Dovolani could take home the disco ball trophy.

"I think she has got a good chance of winning," Osbourne said.

"But I am team Louis [Van Amstel]," she adds, referring to her former partner, "and Neicy Nash. I love her. She is great!"

Last week, Kendra Wilkinson told Us she could "never leave" her 3-month-old baby, Hank, at home to compete on the ABC hit.

Kate's ex husband Jon is also disgruntled about her decision to appear on the show, Us Weekly has reported, and her kids are "depressed" and "acting out."

"They were asking 'When is Mommy coming home?'" an insider told Us.
