Kate Gosselin almost drove her Dancing With the Stars partner to quit—but it turns out she actually wanted him fired. At one point, “Kate demanded that the shows producers fire Tony and get her a new partner,” a source tells PopEater. “She talks to him as if he is her ninth child.” Apparently their bickering is much worse than what was shown in Monday night’s clip, and “everyone involved in the show thinks Kate is impossible.”

Impossible she may be, but she knows how to drum up the hype: For next week’s dance, she’ll be “reuniting” with ex-hubby Jon…sort of. Kate and Tony are planning a Jon-and-Kate-themed dance, which will tell “my story over the past two years,” Kate tells E!, and it will be “dramatic.” Her partner confirms: “Lots of drama.” In case you don’t yet get the point, Kate adds, “Oh my gosh, so much drama.”
