Gossip from behind the scenes of Dancing with the Stars didn't paint Kate Gosselin in such a flattering light, with crews claiming the reality TV mom was a "nightmare" to work with. But figure skater Evan Lysacek dismissed the talk while chatting with People.com recently, calling Gosselin "the sweetest woman in the world."

“Kate is in New York right now. We’ve been texting each other back and forth and we’re trying to get together,” he said. "We were instantly friends and everyone really loved her on the show. We missed her so much when she left. She’s hilarious and she’s always joking around. I don’t think she ever said a serious sentence.”

Lysacek also revealed he hadn't followed Kate's story very closely until the two appeared on DWTS together, but knowing what she's been through, he's now sympathetic.

He added, "She’s got a lot to deal with. If I had eight kids, I can’t imagine. I’m sure it’s pretty tough and sometimes that’s misconstrued with Kate. But she’s an amazing mom and a tough lady. She was constantly showing pictures and videos of her kids and missing them."
