Kate’s ‘Dancing’ partner thinks she’s a klutz

Reality TV mom-turned-ballroom beginner Kate Gosselin hasn’t even made her “Dancing With the Stars” debut yet, but the bad reviews are already rolling in for her moves behind the scenes. According to a report in the National Enquirer, even Gosselin’s pro partner, “Dancing” vet Tony Dovolani, has problems with his pupil.

“Kate is a klutz!” Dovolani reportedly complained to his friends. “She doesn’t listen and can’t take direction.”

It seems Gosselin’s long-reputed bossy behavior extends to her newest pursuit, as sources claim she has a tendency to break one of ballroom’s basic rules by leading Dovolani across the dance floor. Sources also revealed the mom of multiples isn’t exactly impressing “Dancing’s” crew members, either. The hair and makeup team are said to find her “rude.”

These latest criticisms come just two days after the New York Post published an insider’s accusation that Gosselin behaves like a dancing diva who “doesn't want anything to do with other contestants” on set. Gosselin addressed that “unfair” rumor Wednesday, during a recent appearance on “The View.”

“I’m 3,000 miles away,” Gosselin said of her remote rehearsal space located in her Pennsylvania home. “I’ve been out (to L.A.) once — for the initial thing. I danced for five days there, met everybody. (They were) wonderful.”

Elin meets with lawyerTiger Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren, recently spent three hours with one of her lawyers, but according to a Radar Online report, the closed-door meeting doesn’t signal the end is near for the pair’s troubled marriage.

“(Elin’s) lawyer left with a lot of documents. Several boxes,” a source revealed.

While on the surface the meeting hardly sounds like good news for the golfer, who’s said to still hold out hope for a full reconciliation with his wife, Nordegren had something else on her mind when she spoke to her attorney.

“She is not talking about divorce,” one insider confirmed.

Despite the couple’s “severe ups and downs” in the wake of Woods’ sex scandal, the insider insists Nordegren was simply taking legal steps to ensure their children’s financial interests regardless of what happens within the marriage.

As for Woods, his goal to win back Nordegren remains unchanged.

“At this point, Tiger would give her pretty much anything she wants,” the insider explained. “He wants her back. He wants his life back.”

Butler believes Aniston rumors will never end
Actor Gerard Butler continues to deny ongoing romance rumors that pair him with “The Bounty Hunter” co-star Jennifer Aniston, but even as he does it, Butler knows rebuffing the gossip won’t do any good.

"It will never be over,” Butler told USA Today at the film’s premiere. “If Jen remains my friend, which I hope she will, anytime we would ever hang out in any way will be us dating again.”

Which makes a strange predicament for the star, who recently admitted he’s had few romances since relocating to Hollywood.

“In the last five years since coming out here, I’ve had two relationships,” Butler revealed in an interview with Men’s Journal. “I’m not a big relationship guy.”

Dish on the fly Esquire magazine’s fantasy photo shoot featuring Tina Fey in a variety of oh-so-out-of-character party-girl scenes would have been much racier had the “30 Rock” star gone along with the magazine’s proposed poses. “The idea of the photo shoot is something like my wild night out,” Fey explained. “The irony being that I don't do that. I got an e-mail (from Esquire) with a list of the potential setups, and my e-mail back was like, ‘Well, I need to decline being handcuffed to a bed. I won't straddle anyone. I won't make out with a cop.’ There are certain things, I totally get them as a premise. And they're all good fun, and if I were a young single model, they would be appropriate, but you know, I'm a mom. And my kid's going to find this someday. I don't want to be handcuffed to a bed in Esquire.” If only all celebrity parents thought that far ahead. … Jim Carrey played his onscreen BF in “I Love You Phillip Morris,” but Ewan McGregor had another actor in mind when he revealed his choice of fantasy partner. “I'd like to be Philip Seymour Hoffman's boyfriend,” McGregor joked to Scotsman.com. “I think we'd make a good couple. We'd look good, we'd look slightly odd and we'd go to interesting parties and people would be interested in us. I don't know him, but I'd like to be his boyfriend.”
