The other day, fans of Jon & Kate Plus 8 were treated to plenty of awkwardness when the lovely Mady and Cara appeared with Kate Gosselin on the Today Show. The girls clammed up, forcing Kate to, once again, do all the talking. According to Jon Gosselin, the twins’ silence occurred because they were so intimidated by their mother.
Jon Gosselin witnessed his daughters’ awkward interview on the Today Show and, suffice to say, he’s not happy with Kate. The reality dad feels that, normally, Mady and Cara are quite talkative. As such, he found their silence rather alarming. In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, Jon explained, “I’ve just never seen them not talk. I was like, ‘Holy cow.’”
So, if Mady and Cara aren’t ordinarily shy, what happened? Kate seems to think they were just taken off guard by being on live television, and Jon agrees…to a certain extent. He believes that, while the cameras may have been intimidating, Kate’s presence only made matters worse. “I think out of fear, they went silent. They were never scripted before, it was a reality show — do what you want, say what you want. They were in a moral dilemma. All the stress got to them and they didn’t say anything.”
In Jon’s opinion, Mady and Cara should never have been on the Today Show in the first place. He told Hollywood Life that the appearance was all about Kate’s ego. “She put them on TV for herself. She’s narcissistic.”
