Tony Dovolani, Kate Gosselin's "Dancing With The Stars" partner had it with Kate during rehearsals last week and quit on her.
Last night, they did their best for the judges dancing to an Elton John 80's classic.
Tony told Entertainment Tonight he regretted what he said. "I don't like speaking when I am upset, and I don't ever want to bring back words that I don't mean, and 'I quit' I guess was one of them."
What did Kate say that set off Tony? "I love how you teach, but you're not taking into consideration how I learn."
Kate got the sympathy vote when she said "I have had a lot of people quit on me." obviously referring to her ex-husband Jon Gosselin.
The dancing partners drama is hardly over as they refused to sit next to each other or be by each other unless on camera as an on-site spy let us know.
After the show, Kate did say she was sorry to Tony.
There seems to be more heat on "Dancing With The Stars" than "American Idol" right now, that is for sure.
