Kate Gosselin -- who consistently bombed during her five-week run on ABC's Dancing With the Stars -- says she had a hunch she and partner Tony Dolovani would be eliminated on Tuesday's show.
Despite being a fan fave, they had the lowest judges' score, 15, on Monday's show.
"I had a gut feeling and there was nothing making that gut feeling go away," the reality mom, 35, told Entertainment Tonight after getting the boot. "Everyone deserves to move on, and I had a good run and am really thankful for the opportunity."
Though she claims she is OK leaving, her eight children "will be upset, definitely," she said. "They will be shattered, in fact." She said she is not "letting them watch" her elimination episode, so "they'll be OK. They'll be glad to have me back. I'm thrilled to have been here and obviously going back to my kids is always a wonderful thing."
She echoed those sentiments later in the night on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, saying she was "not surprised" she got the boot.
Before the season began, she vowed to Kimmel that she was going "to win" the show. When he called her out for the remark after her elimination, she replied, "I always believe what I say ... but then, like, that dancing stuff started."
Added the mom, "To be very, very honest, if I didn't have, as Tony says, three other lives going on then I probably could've done better."
