Kate Gosselin has to be making a lot of money to want to come back week after week on Dancing With the Stars. If I danced that badly, I'd be praying to be voted off! Any idea how much she makes per episode?

You assume that you share the same personality makeup as your typical reality star. You probably don't. Reference Dr. Drew Pinsky's research for some interesting info on just how much more narcissistic the average celebrity is, at least, versus the rest of us. (Hint: It's a lot.)
Reality stars seem to have it particularly bad, but I digress.
You asked how much Kate might be making on DWTS:
I have been poring through reports to get you the most reliable data.
There are a ton of relatively shady, uncited reports saying Gosselin is one of the highest-paid celebrity dancers ever to appear on the show, commanding something like $50,000 to $75,000 an episode?plus a bonus in the six figures if she makes it to the finals.
However, don't be surprised if she's paid less than that.
