Kate Gosselin Defends Daughters Following Awkward Today Show Appearance

January 17, 2014 07:25 AM by Stephanie Gustafson

Looks like Kate Gosselin’s goal of having her daughters deny Jon Gosselin’s claims are starting to fall apart. Mady and Cara did well enough during their interview with People Magazine, but the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars weren’t so eager to take the hot seat on the Today Show.

Yesterday, Mady and Cara Gosselin were all smiles when they walked onto the set for the Today Show. But those were obviously nervous smiles as, during the interview, the two clammed up and struggled to say a single word. After Savannah Guthrie asked Mady to describe post-reality life, she was greeted by an “um” and then silence. A very unhelpful Kate jumped in to say, “Mady, your words. It’s your chance. Spit it out.”

Savannah then turned to Cara, who was just as quiet. In fact, the second twin was even more steadfast in her refusal to speak than Mady, who eventually explained, “A lot of people think that filming our show has damaged us. But it’s only really helped.” Of course, after the girls’ nervousness on the Today Show, some viewers may have a hard time taking those words to heart.

Kate later jumped to her daughters’ defense via social media, tweeting, “I’m proud of them, taking this opp! They were so excited but caught off guard by live tv! Have you ever had the opp to do live TV? It can be scary! M and C were honored to be interviewed.”
