Dancing With the Stars contestant Kate Gosselin had a very "Hollywood" night out Monday.

First, the mom of eight (who's still rocking the extensions) appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she boasted she'd win the competition despite her lack of dance skills.

After her sit-down with the funnyman, she hit hot spot STK, where some of the other Dancing contestants were partying, including Evan LysacekDerek Hough and Nicole Scherzinger.

So Kate's making the talk-show rounds and frequenting swanky steakhouses to rub elbows with celebs, but what about the kids?

They're back in Pennsylvania...under the vigilant eye of Jon, we presume?

But mommy dearest isn't completely ditching the littles ones for her Hollywood dreams. Kate told Jimmy Kimmel she'll be doing the bicoastal thing for the show.

"I'm going to travel back to Pennsylvania and my partner will go with me. And I'm going to practice in the basement while they're home or sleeping, and when they're at school I'll go to a local studio," she explained.

Sounds exhausting...we bet partner Tony Dovolani is wishing he got paired with the Pussycat Doll instead.

Not to mention the fact that it seems like she's putting her fame aspirations in front of being a good parent. Isn't that Jon's job?
