It looks like Kate Gosselin isn’t winning any new friends over at Dancing With the Stars. The crew is calling her a diva and says she is constantly late.

NY Daily News reports, “Kate shows up late for hair and makeup every time,” a show insider says of the rehearsals that led to Monday night’s opener, which drew a record-breaking 22.8 million viewers.

A rep for the ABC program says, “Kate is always on time and is a pleasure to work with,” but the insider begged to differ.

“The staff has warned her and lectured her about being late, but Kate just gets angry and blows them off,” says the source. “No one wants to deal with her.”

While such behavior may be expected from the notoriously short-fused Gosselin, the spy says the “Dancing” staff initially feared that former “Beverly Hills 90210” star Doherty would be the troublesome hoofer.

“Everyone had heard the stories of Shannen’s behavior on sets when she was younger,” says the source. “But she’s been one of the easiest people to work with. She’s practically the opposite of Kate.”

I believe the rumors about Kate. On her TLC show, it showcased her nasty temper and insecurity. I’m sure having to raise 8 little kids could drive you nuts. I doubt Kate will make the final four but at least she will put some cash in her pocket to help care for her kiddies. I seriously doubt she is getting any child support from her ex hubby. Now, she just needs to find a man. She needs to call Taylor Hicks, he said he would date her. Go Kate!
