Kate Gosselin’s second week on "Dancing with the Stars" nearly fell flat on its face as her partner Tony Dovolani threatened to quit.

He told her she needed to start listening to his instructions rather than tuning out.

"We don’t have enough time. I’m stressed!” Gosselin stormed.

“Really? Then why don’t you start to pay attention to my teaching then,” he said. “It’s like really? You’re telling me how to teach you how to dance? That’s what I do for a living.”

“I’ve been mister nice guy. I’m done,” he said to Gosselin and stormed off the set mouthing the words “I quit” to the cameras.

The drama took place before the pair were forced to make up in time to do a Jive that judge Bruno Tonioli labeled “a disaster.”

Now we know why.
