Former “Jon and Kate Plus 8” star Kate Gosselin was a lightning rod for controversy both before and during her time on “Dancing with the Stars”. People seemed to love her or hate her on a daily basis, and it all seemed to depend on who you were talking to at the moment.
If that person was Olympic skater Evan Lysacek, then the verdict was usually positive. Even though he is no longer obligated to talk about the show, Evan continued singing Kate’s praises in a new interview with E! Online in anticipation of the ESPY Awards:
“She’s such a great mom and really a tremendous person. She has such a great sense of humor.
“I can’t imagine having to father eight children. I don’t know how she does it, but she does it with a smile on her face and looking great every moment of the day.”
Evan also said that he watched Kate’s new TLC special, and that he has talked to Jake Pavelka since his split from Vienna Girardi (Jake is apparently getting through it all right).
Do you think that Evan is just being too kind to Kate? Feel free to share your thoughts with a comment and stay tuned for more “Jon and Kate” news. To view photos from Sunday’s “Kate Plus 8” special, follow the link here.
