Kate Gosselin had been hesitant to appear on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS). After all, George Lopez is one of the many late-night hosts who's made merciless jokes at her expense. She counted at least 48 cracks about her. "I will give you a free slap at me," Lopez said. He moved closer for the hit, but she gave him a peck on the cheek instead.
The host then showed proof that he wanted her to win 'Dancing With the Stars' last spring. In a program clip from April 14, Lopez implored everyone to vote for her to stay on the show. As footage of her dancing played behind him, Lopez said, "Do it for the United States of America. Times are tough. But when we see that, we feel better about ourselves." Once again, Lopez was teasing her, but she was good-humored about it. "Obviously that [appeal] probably kept me on far longer than my dancing."
