Get ready to see a whole lot more of Kate Gosselin! TLC has announced today that the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom will not only be starring in one, but rather two reality shows this year.

Kate, who is currently tanking on Dancing With The Stars, will headline her own show, Twist of Kate, on TLC.

According to the network, Twist of Kate, set to debut this summer, will be a 12-episode series that will feature Kate responding to fan letters from those who are inspired by her story as a way to profile the personal challenges her fans face. Kate will then travel the country to meet her fans’ families and to try their jobs.

“I look at it as a loose concept,” Kate, 35, told USA Today about her new show. “I want to be out there learning from others, helping to provide insight whenever I can, though I don’t consider myself an expert on anything.”

On to reality show number two, thanks to the settlement TLC was able to reach with Jon Gosselin earlier this year, Kate Plus 8 will also be making it’s debut this year. If you recall, Jon & Kate Plus 8 was canceled last year after Jon declared he had an epiphany and no longer wanted his kids to be filmed anymore.

The Kate Plus 8 series will be in the form of specials focusing on her new life as a single mom to her eight children.

Jon has also made headlines as he filed a motion this week in an attempt to gain primary custody of his eight children. His lawyer revealed earlier this week that he is having to pay Kate $22,000 a month in child support. He is accusing Kate of being an absentee mother due to her DWTS gig. There are also rumblings that Jon is going broke, which might explain a motive for taking Kate to court.

Last night’s Dancing With The Stars elimination was less about who went home, and more about who didn’t go home.

80 year-old Buzz Aldrin’s elimination didn’t exactly come as a big surprise, as he had the lowest scores this season. What was surprising was that for the second week in a row, Kate Gosselin avoided elimination. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom wasn’t even in the bottom two.

“I did this show for the fighter pilots, the military, the older geezers like me,” said Buzz, who received a standing ovation from the audience. “I thank everyone who voted for me.”

Rounding up the bottom two with Buzz was surprisingly Jake Pavelka, former star of The Bachelor. A lot of people are questioning why people continue to vote for Kate? Well some reports believe people are voting for her because they feel sorry for her, or because they find her somewhat relatable.

Kate however continues to take a beating in the press. We reported yesterday that her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, plans on taking her to court in an attempt to get custody of their eight children and stop paying her $22,000 a month in child support. And now the latest today is Kate gracing the cover of UsWeekly magazine under the headline – “Inside Kate’s Train Wreck.”  The magazine cover accuses her of torturing her partner Tony, and blowing off practice to shop.

In other DWTS news, the show is having it’s best season ever, as the ratings continue to soar. For the first time ever, an episode of DWTS beat American Idol in the ratings. Last week’s episode of DWTS averaged 23 million viewers compared to the 21.9 million viewers Idol received. Some are calling it the Kate Gosselin effect, it seems those who love her, or simply love to hate her, are tuning in to watch her.

TELL US – DID THE VIEWERS GET IT RIGHT BY ELIMINATING BUZZ?

Just when you thought all was well with Jon Gosselin and ex-wife Kate Gosselin, comes news that Jon is planning to sue Kate for primary custody of their eight children.

Jon’s new lawyer, Anthony F. List, tells TMZ that Jon is going to court to ask for primary physical custody and spousal support from Kate.

The reason? Well apparently Jon believes Dancing With The Stars is keeping Kate from being a good mother, with his lawyer calling Kate an “absentee mom.” And Jon plans to use the fact that Kate is doing DWTS as evidence that Kate is not spending “quality time with the 8 kids.”

Another issue on the table is the amount of child support Jon is having to pay Kate. Jon’s lawyer reveals Jon is currently paying Kate an enormous $22,000 a month in child support. The attorney feels the amount is “ridiculous,” and may ask a judge to reverse the arrangement and demand that Kate pay Jon.

Kate has however said in previous interviews that she’s only away from her kids from Sundays to Tuesdays, as most of her practicing is done at her house in Pennsylvania.

UPDATE: Kate has issued the following statement – “I am not willing to comment in public on the custody discussions regarding my children.  What I will say is this: I am and always will be a mother first, but as a single working mom I will do everything necessary to provide for my kids despite the opinions of others.”

Week 3 of Dancing With The Stars brought us some solid performances and great story telling.

Taking the lead this week for the first time this season is Olympic Ice Skater Evan Lysacek, who earned a score of 25 for his high energy quick step dance. Evan’s high score was all the more impressive considering he was dancing on two broken toes. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba called his dance “twinkling, athletic and energetic.”

Tying for second place were ESPN reporter Erin Andrews and PussyCat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. Both ladies received a 23 score for their dances. Erin vowed not to let the death threats get in the way of her dancing, and she had one of the most entertaining performances of the night when she did the waltz while blindfolded with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Carrie Ann called the dance “Breathtakingly artistic.”  Nicole also had a solid dance with partner Derek Hough, but the judges deducted points citing they broke two rules of the quick step.

The lowest score of the night once again went to 80 year old Buzz Aldrin, who was accused of just sort of walking through his dance. For the third week in a row, the second lowest score of the night went to Kate Gosselin, though her partner Tony Dovolani had predicted the “Paso Doble is going to be Kate’s best dance.” Kate received a poor 15 points for what Carrie Ann called an “odd” dance. It will be interesting to see if Kate will be saved once again when the results show airs tonight as 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

Kate was also shown having a small meltdown during one of her dance practices. The mom of eight just was shown crying for no reason in particular. However in a new interview with ABC, Kate reveals her reason for tearing up. “I had a little meltdown,” she said. “And I heard [my kids] upstairs. And I just started crying. And I was like, ‘I just miss my kids.'” Allrighty Kate.

The scores from last night are below -

Evan & Anna: 26
Erin & Maks: 23
Nicole & Derek: 23
Jake & Chelsie: 21
Niecy & Louis: 21
Pamela & Damien: 21
Aiden & Edyta: 20
Chad & Cheryl: 20
Kate & Tony: 15
Buzz & Ashly: 13

Tonight marks the 3rd week of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. In what is being called the best season yet, the stars will not only have to dance tonight, but their dance will also have to tell a story.

The latest news and updates bel0w -

Erin Andrews Death Threats – It seems Erin Andrews cannot catch a break. Just weeks after her stalker was sentenced to over 2 years in prison, the ESPN reporter is now having to deal with another nut. TMZ broke the story on Friday that Erin had been the recipient of several death threats. The threats, which started out as sexual, apparently turned violent a few months ago. The emails which started late last year, were being sent to the Dan Patrick Show. Erin and her lawyer were however just notified last week. The good news is that the FBI knows the identity of the man, and security has been provided for Erin and her family. Erin has vowed to keep on dancing, telling PEOPLE, “I’m glad I’m here. I have a dance on Monday and I don’t want to let Maks down, I don’t want to let my family down, and I don’t want to let myself down,” she says. “I’m not going to stop living my life.”

Evan Lysacek Injury – It also came out this week that Olympic Ice Skater Evan Lysacek is injured with two broken toes. Evan however vows to not let the injury get in the way of his quickstep dance tonight. “As for my toes, I’m not worried. I will tape them up and hit the floor with the same 100 percent effort I give in training. I will not let them steal my thunder! A little pain won’t keep me off the ice, nor will it keep me off the dance floor,” said Evan.

Kate Gosselin’s Best Dance?Kate Gosselin’s partner Tony Dovolani is making a big prediction for tonight. The professional dancer is predicting tonight will be Kate’s best ever. “Paso Doble is going to be Kate’s best dance :)” Tony, 37, tweeted on Saturday.  Then again, this shouldn’t be a difficult task to accomplish considering Kate has received the second lowest scores for her two previous dances.

In other DWTS, country star Reba McEntire will be performing on Tuesday’s result show. Pamela Anderson, who was in the bottom two last week, is said to be getting a bit of help this week. The former Baywatch babe has been getting some help from Spanish born entertainer Charo according to UsWeekly. We will get to see the results of that combo tonight.

TELL US -WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S DWTS EPISODE?

Shannen Doherty and Mark BallasDWTS Kate and Tony

Shannen Doherty found herself the first casualty of a shocking Dancing With The Stars results show that had her and fellow actress Pamela Anderson in the bottom two.

Shannen, who had good scores and delivered a strong jive performance Monday night, however took the loss in stride saying she she was not as shocked as her fellow contestants. “I’m not a dancer,” she told PEOPLE. “Mark [Ballas] is surprised, but I’m not.”

“I did what I set out to do,” said Shannen who decided to do the show for her father, after he suffered a stroke in December. “I made my dad proud, that’s all that really matters.” Perhaps Shannen’s time on the show just wasn’t meant to be as it was also reported last night that her partner, Mark’s knee injury, was more serious that originally thought. Mark would have missed 6 weeks of dancing had Shannen remained in the competition.

Saved last night was reality star Kate Gosselin, who many had predicted would be the first to go, considering she had the second lowest scores in the competition.

Kate however spent the entire night very nervous as she was one of the last to be announced safe from elimination. “I don’t think I breathed for 10 minutes, and I don’t think that’s humanely possible,” Kate, 35, told Entertainment Tonight after the show. “I also thought I was going to throw up at the end. My gosh, that is just pure torture, is it not?”

TELL US – DID SHANNEN DESERVE TO GO HOME? IF NOT, WHO SHOULD HAVE WENT HOME?

Week 2 of Dancing With The Stars brought us some phenomenal dance moves but the topic on every one’s minds seems to be the drama involved with some of the dancing couples.

The most intense fight came from Kate Gosselin and her partner Tony Dovolani, who even threatened to quit during one of their rehearsals.  It all started when Kate complained that she was “stressed,” Tony then said, “Nothing in dancing is natural to Kate.”

“He feels like I undermine him as a teacher,” Kate, 34, snapped to the camera before telling Jon Tony, “You’re not taking into consideration how I learn!” Kate walked away saying, “I’m done, I’m done today.” Tony then removed his mic pack and said, “I quit!”  causing Kate to break down saying, “I don’t get it!”

Shortly after, Tony came back saying he overreacted, and the two made up. Kate then said, “A lot of people quit on me in my life.”  Tony has also said he regrets telling Kate he quit.

In other DWTS news, the highest score of the night went to Pussycat doll Nicole Scherzinger, who did a very impressive jive dance with partner Derek Hough, earning them the first 10s of the season.  The couple received an outstanding 28 points out of 30.

Coming in second was Olympic ice skater Evan Lysacek, who received a 24 score for his high energy jive with partner Anna Trebunskaya.

In third place was rumored couple Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Their fluid foxtrot earned them a 23 point score and a compliment from judge Bruno, who said the ESPN reporter has “natural elegance.”

At the bottom this week was once again Kate Gosselin and Buzz Aldrin.  Kate earned a score of 15 as she looked extremely mortified and robotic while attempting to do the jive.  Buzz earned a score of 12 as his foxtrot failed to sizzle.

The scores for the 2 weeks combined is below -

Nicole & Derek: 53
Evan & Anna: 47
Erin & Maks: 44
Pam & Damien: 43
Jake & Chelsie: 40
Niecy & Louis: 39
Shannen & Mark: 38
Aiden & Edyta: 34
Chad & Cheryl: 34
Kate & Tony: 31
Buzz & Ashly: 26

So what can we expect in week 2? Well we have some news and updates below -

Kate Gosselin Turns 35 – Kate celebrated her 35th birthday on Sunday away from her eight kids, as she was in Los Angeles preparing for the show. When asked what she wished for on her birthday, Kate revealed it was to stay on DWTS and make it through the first elimination. “I hope I’m not one of the first to go,” said Kate to PEOPLE. “I really like it here. You become close to everybody so fast.” Kate might not get her wish as some are predicting she will be the first to go.

Erin Andrews Dating Maksim? - This was the big rumor/story that swept through the web last week. Many noticed the two seem to have some great chemistry on the show, and Maksim, 30, didn’t help put the rumors to rest when he answered “maybe” when asked if he and Erin were dating. Erin, 31, also gushed about Maksim, “I think its funny when you are paired up with a really attractive guy. You turn into a fifteen year-old and don’t know what to do,” Erin said, giggling, “he makes me nervous!” The two have been seen spending lots of time together outside of DWTS. Photos of the two are below.

Nicole and Derek Not DatingNicole Scherzinger ,who currently leads the show with the 25 points she earned last week, was also rumored to be getting hot and heavy with her dancing partner Derek Hough. Nicole however shut down the rumors saying she is dating Race car driver Louis Hamilton. The former Pussycat doll leader is still the favorite to win the show.

What To Expect Tonight – As for what is to come tonight, we can expect a foxtrot dance from Erin and Maksim. The duo will be dancing to Taylor Swift’s “Love Story,” which will not help put the dating rumors to rest. Kate Gosselin also reveals she will be doing the jive dance with partner Tony. Doing the jive as well will be Evan Lysaceck, who says “the jive is difficult, but it’s fun.”
