Watching an awkward interview is just as addictive as a car chase. You just. can’t. look. away.
Well, there was a truly uncomfortable moment on the TODAY show this morning with former reality television star Kate Gosselin and two of her children, Mady and Cara. We imagine the video will be making the rounds on your Facebook newsfeeds any moment now.
The Jon & Kate Plus 8 trio recently posed for the cover of People magazine, claiming they haven’t been emotionally damaged by their turbulent past.
And yet when her older twin daughters, who are now 13 years old, were asked how they were doing, they didn’t utter a single word.
“Mady, your words,” mother Kate scolded. “It’s your chance. Spit it out.”
After a few more seconds of silence, Kate stepped in to handle the interview
“So this is their chance to talk and this is the most wordless I’ve heard them all morning. I don’t want to speak for them, but Mady go ahead . . that years later they’re good, they’re fine . . Go for it, Mady.”
“No, you just said it,” her daughter replied.
The girls later said they were open to doing another family reality show and Mady insisted that many people have the wrong impression of what their lives are like.
“A lot of people think that filming our show has damaged us, but it’s only really helped,” she explained.
Honestly, we feel bad for the girls! It’s clear they weren’t ready for live TV national exposure. And can you blame them? Not many 13-year-olds are.
