Kate Gosselin: My Kids Say I Look Beautiful on DWTS

After performing her best routine yet on Dancing with the Stars -- a tango that only earned her 32 points out of a possible 60 -- Kate Gosselin and her partner Tony Dovolani spoke to PEOPLE about her biggest fans -- her eight little ones back home in Pennsylvania.

The kids, Gosselin says, watch "with popcorn every week" as their mom takes the ballroom.

Their take on Mom's highly criticized routines? "They say I look beautiful. They're glad I don't scream in the middle of the routine like I do at home when I dance for them on Saturday mornings," she says. "And Tony always looks very good."

Adds Dovolani: "They're my biggest fans."
