In case you were wondering why Kate Gosselin would fly across the country every week to compete on Dancing With the Stars, the answer has been revealed. Popeater reports that Gosselin made $100,000 per episode, which means that she took home a grand total of $500,000. This paycheck does not surprise me. Gosselin was the biggest draw of the season, and after she left the ratings went down significantly. That explains why they brought her back for the finale, despite all of the reports about her being difficult. She sure is doing well lately. With her two new TLC shows, I don’t think she’ll have a problem feeding her eight children. Do you think Jon contributes at all anymore?
