Kate Gosselin Will Literally Fly on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Finale

Alex Blagg / May 19, 2010

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Kate Gosselin!

Prickly-haired, sharp-tongued reality-TV matriarch Gosselin has revealed that her return to Dancing With the Stars for the season’s finale later this month will feature a very special component: The sight of her soaring through the air, a la Pink at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards. According to Kate,

“I am dancing a strange combination of two songs. An old dance, a new dance, and it involves flying.”

Presumably, this will involve some kind of wire rigging, and not some recent acquisition of superhuman powers, but who knows? Kate managed to put up with her ex-husband Jon for so many years, so clearly she is capable of many things beyond us mere mortals’ ability.

And if some fatal mishap should occur—God forbid—during the stunt, don’t worry: Her octet of rug rats will be cared for by her former DWTS cohorts. Says one of the show’s professional dancers, Anna Trebunskaya,

“We can split them all between the cast and they’re going to visit each other every two days.”

Probably wouldn’t be any worse than their current situation.
