The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom took out her $7,000 hair extensions but fret not! (the two people that care that is) as Kate’s hair stylist, Ted Gibson, reveals Kate,34, will be getting some new extensions put in on Thursday.
“We’ll be doing color, we’ll be doing extensions, we’ll be getting her ready for her premiere on ‘Dancing With the Stars!'” said Ted, adding that Kate’s new extensions will include a few different shades of blond. “The extensions will last through the whole time she’s on the show.”
Kate is also featured on the cover of the new issue of PEOPLE magazine during which she defends the criticism she has received on her decision to do DWTS. Some critics believe it’s not in the best interest of her eight kids to do the show. “You say I’m a bad mom, it destroys me,” says Kate who insists she can balance fame and family.
As we previously reported, Kate will be practicing in her family home in Pennsylvania, and then heading to Los Angles from Sunday to Tuesday to film the show.
Kate also reveals she wants to do this for her children. “If I last two weeks on the show, I’ve shown my kids that hard work and perseverance pays off,” says Kate. “And if I don’t win, I’ve shown them you don’t always have to come in first. You just have to keep on trying.”
