While Kate has previously stated she suffered from "post-DWTS depression" after she was ousted from Dancing with the Stars' tenth season last month, she has recently returned to the ABC reality series as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.
"[It] has been extremely exciting to hold a microphone, and I found that I am loving this side of it," Kate told People. "I can talk. We all knew that, and so I really enjoy it."
Kate said it took her about two weeks to re-adjust to life without Dancing with the Stars.
"It was just about two weeks before I was like, 'Oh, hey, I'm resettled back into life. I feel like a normal mom again,'" she told People.
In addition, Kate said she hopes to pass on her new-found love for dance to her children be enrolling them in dance classes "when life settles down a little."
"I grew up minus dance experience, and I see now how valuable that is [to] formation, determination, stamina, all of that," she told People.
