    Kate has the money and exposure part down pat so Sherri need not worry. It's the actual raising of the children where Kate is failing. lol
    at your entire post.

    Just remember: both Kate and Sherri (and Elizabeth and others) are breeding.

    Kate Gosselin "Depressed" After DWTS Judges' Remarks



    Kate Gosselin says her spirits are down after judges once again ripped into her on Monday's Dancing With the Stars.

    The reality mom, 35, was at the bottom of the pack with a score of 15 for her fox trot. Judge Bruno Tonioli told her partner Tony Dovolani that he would have been better off dancing with "a coat hanger."

    After the show, Gosselin told Entertainment Tonight that the judges' remarks definitely got to her.
    "I had fun, and they didn't seem to notice," she said. "It's starting to creep in a little bit. Tonight, I was trying to hold back horrible emotions ... probably not on live TV should I be standing there crying in front of the judges ... It's getting a little difficult. I'm depressed, sort of."

    Dovolani, 36, agreed, saying he had been having "fun -- up until the judges' part."

    What part of the judges' remarks will Gosselin take as encouragement?
    Said the mom (who claims she didn't rehearse as much because her eight kids were visiting L.A. last week): "The fact that Carrie Ann [Inaba] said they there was a teeny bit of gracefulness [in my routine]."

    Tell Us: Are judges too mean or are they fair? Not mean enough should be an option {my comment}

    Well, I was depressed after watching her dance.

    IMO, the judges were not nearly tough enough. How many media sources does TLC pay to promote her and to try to garner sympathy for her?

    She said she didn't have enough time to practice? Is that the reason for her pathetic attempt to dance?
    Having a busy schedule didn't seem to keep Evan from learning his dance (and he learned it well). That
    could be because he practices his routine even though he has to also perform his ice numbers. And he never
    whines that he has too little time.

    It just looked obvious that she didn't practice very much. I thought her costume was cute, once I realized she was trying to be Ally Sheedy (right?) She didn't look miserable, but she didn't look like she was into it.

    Why not, Kate? You've cried on every other TV talk show you've ever been on.

    Crying would have been more acceptable than that icy stare that shoots deathrays.

    It was painfully obvious that she put little time into her rehearsal this week, and yet she expects the judges to be pleased with her "dancing"?

    She just needs to go home. Now.

    Just saw this on MSNBC. Not that many of us are surprised at how little time the band and singers have to practice.

    12 Songs a Week No Problem for "Dancing" Band

    18-member orchestra gets only a few hours to rehearse before show
    By Sandy Cohen
    The Associated Press
    updated 9:15 a.m. MT, Tues., April 20, 2010

    LOS ANGELES - Three hours until showtime. The "Dancing With the Stars" ballroom is empty except for the hosts, the dancers and the band.

    The professional dancers and their celebrity partners — already in costumes and makeup — have been rehearsing their routines for almost a week. The 18-member orchestra, on the other hand, just saw the night's music and in just a few hours, they'll be playing the music for the first time in front of millions.

    On today's playlist? Lady Gaga, Louis Armstrong, the Bangles, Cole Porter, a song in Spanish and a show tune from "Chicago."

    Musical director Harold Wheeler is in his trailer, just outside the studio. "We don't rehearse until (show day)," he says. "That's why it's a great orchestra."

    Wheeler, a Broadway veteran, has been playing with the same group of musicians for more than a decade. The 66-year-old composer and conductor brings them along on his various gigs, which include movie and TV soundtracks and, this year, performing at the Academy Awards. When they're not working with Wheeler, all are studio musicians for hire. The same goes for the singers.

    "They're on many, many recordings everywhere," Wheeler says, "but on Mondays and Tuesdays, they're mine."

    The show's producers pick the songs the professional dancers and their celebrity partners dance to each week, choosing from every genre to appeal to all demographics.

    "A lot of the hip-hop stuff and so forth is to try and draw those younger people," Wheeler says. But there's nothing — not even the rare Portuguese, country or "hillbilly" tracks — the band can't handle.

    "I can't think of a lot of musicians that could come in and do what we do," he says.

    Horns drive the ‘Dancing’ sound
    The dancers approve the selected songs on Monday. Wheeler gets the track list Tuesday and arranges the tunes for his orchestra, giving each what he calls "the 'Dancing With the Stars' sound."

    Basically, he makes them bigger, tapping into the shiny brass power of his band's horn section.

    "The horns really create the 'Dancing With the Stars' sound, but it never washes out the original flavor of the recording," Wheeler says, adding that the big music matches the glamour and dazzle of the show itself. "The costumes are lavish, the lighting and everything, so everything is just upgraded."

    He assigns his singers their parts on Tuesdays, too, so they can listen to the originals for almost a week before singing them live on the show.

    "Their job is much more difficult because they have to really be chameleons," Wheeler says. "When we do a Ray Charles number, they sound like Ray Charles. We do a Lady Gaga number, they sound like her. They're so wonderfully versatile. All the comments we've ever had say that, except for the one Simon just made."

    He is referring to Simon Cowell, who took a swipe at "Dancing With the Stars" during a recent episode of "American Idol."

    "If you listen to one of those dancing shows, they always have a singer murdering a song on it," Cowell said.

    "Dancing" executive producer Conrad Green says Cowell's comments were "a bit uncalled for."

    "Our band is as good as it gets," Green says. "They're fantastic professionals. Every week I'm continually amazed at how they're able to turn these things around so quickly. It's awe-inspiring."

    "Idol" and "Dancing" compete for viewers on Tuesdays, each drawing an audience of around 20 million, according to the Nielsen Co. While "Idol" has dominated the ratings for years, "Dancing" was the top-rated show in the country in the country last week, after the NCAA basketball championship.

    A little extra time for the singers
    Singers on "Dancing With the Stars" get to rehearse for an extra hour with Wheeler before the band comes in. Then the whole group runs through each of night's songs together four times before the big live show.

    "We never really get to digest the songs because it's our first time with them," says singer Carmen Carter. "The first time I'm really singing it is on that Monday. That's the first time you're hearing yourself on the mike."

    The main challenge, besides playing the songs on live TV with little rehearsal, is replicating the sound of the original tracks the dancers have been using for practice — especially because the dancers and band spend just 10 minutes together before showtime.

    "Sometimes, the tempo can be a little different from what you've heard with the recording you've been listening to," says dancing pro Kym Johnson, who won the show's mirror ball trophy last season with partner Donny Osmond. "But all in all, I think performing to a live band is much better than to a recording."

    Despite the last-minute nature of the show's musical preparations, Wheeler says the band has only gone wrong once in six years and nearly 1,000 songs.

    "Half the orchestra misinterpreted a cue and the band was playing two different things for about eight seconds," he says, but he's pretty sure no one noticed.

    Green says the big sound of Wheeler's orchestra "makes the show feel special."

    "It gives it a real sense of occasion and uniqueness," he says. "You'll never hear those songs that way again."

    Even Wheeler can see the effect his music has on the dancers.

    "It adds to their performance," he says. "They come in with that little kick that they didn't have in their original rehearsals."

    And that's a good thing, since it's already showtime.

    We'll definitely be crying this week if she outlasts anyone else. That'll just be pathetic. It's not even fair she's getting high scores but she needs to grow a backbone. I guess she's used to interviewers playing nice and pretending they believe her story. Celebs have been called and compared to worse things so saying Tony dancing with a coat hanger would have been more life like or whatever Bruno said really isn't that bad. She can't dance. She knows she can't dance. Other couples are obviously taking a hit for her. Why does she think they're being unreasonable? Take it like a man like Buzz did.
