(Newser) – Kate Gosselin will compete on the next season of Dancing With the Stars. A source close says the former Jon and Kate Plus 8 star will balance the intense demands of the Dancing rehearsal schedule with parenting, including doing much of the rehearsing from her Pennsylvania home. She'll be handsomely rewarded for her efforts, too.

Although the show doesn't publicize compensation agreements, a contract from a previous season indicates that contestants make at least $125,000. They can take in $365,000 if they make it to the final two, MSNBC reports. Click here for the entire season 10 lineup, which includes a Beverly Hills 90210 alum.
