Tony Dovolani said he needed therapy after doing "Dancing" with Kate Gosselin.

Kate Gosselin is fighting back!

The reality-TV mama says she's surprised by the not-so-nice things her former "Dancing With the Stars" partner Tony Dovolani had to say during a recent appearance on "Anderson." Dovolani slammed Gosselin's dancing skills and joked that he needed "a lot of therapy" after their failed pairing...

"First, I think it is a shame that Tony has been left only with a negative impression of our time together, especially after we spent SO many hours, days, nights and weeks working hard together doing our best in the competition," Gosselin writes in her latest blog post for CouponCabin.com.

"Let's face it -- he didn't have a lot to work with as far as my dancing abilities were concerned," she continues. "I've admitted and laughed about this many times over the last two years!"

"Second, despite the many obstacles I faced at that time, I was left with a very positive impression of the entire experience!" Gosselin adds. "I very much enjoyed the challenge and the [camaraderie]. I made many lifelong friends, have tons of great memories, and learned a lot about myself, so I don't regret a single moment! I wish nothing but the best in future seasons for Tony and his prospective dance partners."

As for Cooper's cracks, Gosselin challenges him to try to compete on the show.

"To Anderson Cooper I'd like to say this: I'd love the opportunity to be a front row spectator for your first dance as a competitor on the next season of Dancing With The Stars," she writes. "I can only imagine how your view of the subject may change 180 degrees, not 360 degrees, if you are given the opportunity to cha cha cha!"

Now we want to hear from you: Should Tony Dovolani stop bad-mouthing Kate Gosselin? Should Anderson Cooper compete on "Dancing With the Stars"? Tell us on our Facebook page!
