"DWTS" Judge Bruno: Kate's Dancing is "Dreadful"

"Dancing with the Stars" judge Bruno Tonioli didn't have high marks for Kate Gosselin's dancing skills during an interview with George Lopez.

"Kate is pretty dreadful," he said matter-of-factly on "Lopez Tonight" Wednesday. "She's entertaining…People like disaster movies -- I'll tell you, we have our own disaster movie there every night.'2012' is nothing compared to the catastrophe she produces."

Though he criticized her dancing skills, he did give the reality TV mom credit for trying hard.

"She's a tough cookie," he continued. "She comes back, she tries to get better…it doesn't really work."

Tonioli also talked about "Dancing with the Stars" beating "American Idol" in the ratings, how the judges have to be impartial and showed off footage from his dancing days.
