'Dancing With the Stars' Kate Gosselin on the red carpet for 'Life'

Kate-Gosselin-life-premiere.jpg Kate Gosselin stepped out on the red carpet with her "Dancing With the Stars" partner Tony Dovolani Thursday (Mar. 4) night. No, not for "DWTS," but for the New York premiere of the Discovery Channel's new documentary series, "Life."

But it's not all glitz and glamor for the "DWTS" contestant. Just hours before the red carpet, Gosselin and Dovolani were spotted heading into the dance studio to practice.

Just how does Gosselin manage her hectic schedule  ... all the while dealing with those eight kids of hers? As The Dish Rag reported earlier this week, "DWTS" has agreed to make it easier on the infamous mom of eight by allowing Gosselin to travel back and forth to Pennsylvania, and her partner will go with her. They'll practice in a makeshift studio in her basement.

We'll see how much this special mommy treatment helps the reality TV star, who told Jimmy Kimmel earlier this week: "I can't dance."
