Source: Kate Gosselin & 'DWTS' Partner Tony 'Hate Each Other'

Kate Gosselin's appearance on this season's Dancing with the Stars may have done wonders for the show's ratings, but there is reportedly one person who is less than thrilled to have the mom of eight in the competition -- her partner, Tony Dovolani!

"He can't wait to get rid of her, even if it means losing early," a show insider told

The ABC show has focused on the struggles the Dancing team has had, showing a rehearsal clip where Tony threatened to quit, but sources say it's much worse than the audience is led to believe.

According to one, the "argumentative" Gosselin, 35, snapped during a practice at her Pennsylvania home, telling Dovolani, 36, "I'm the reason anyone knows your name, so give me a break!"


"They hate each other," a DWTS insider says. "Backstage, she will back him into a wall to talk, and he won't listen or look at her."

But don't think Dovolani is just sitting back and letting Kate get away with her behavior. He "complains to producers about how impossible she is. He doesn't want to be around her unless he has to," a source said.

"Not only is Kate the worst dancer, but she's nasty," another set source confirmed. "It's an ongoing joke how Tony got the short end of the stick when he was assigned to Kate."
