Last week’s cringe-worthy Today interview with Kate Gosselin and her twin daughters, Mady and Cara, had everyone back on the “Kate Gosselin Sucks” train. Ever since the former star of Kate Plus Eight and her daughters appeared on the morning show, people have been blowing up the interwebs about Kate’s evil and domineering ways. So naturally, when Today host Savannah Guthrie sat down on Watch What Happens Live last night, host Andy Cohen had plenty of questions.
If you didn’t catch Kate, Mady and Cara’s Today interview last week, allow me to sum it up for you. AWKWARD. During the live segment, Savannah Guthrie chatted with mom Kate and the twins about living in the spotlight and the media scrutiny they’ve endured in recent years. But when it came time for the girls to respond, they clammed up, refusing to say more than “ummm….uhhhhh.” The ex Kate Plus Eight star, ever the
famewhore supermom, quickly tried to do damage control to spare herself her kids, telling the 13-year olds to “spit it out” before turning to Savannah and declaring that “this is the most wordless” she’d heard them be all morning. Overall, it was a palpably awkward moment that sparked an instant online outrage against Kate and her controlling ways and seeming obsession with appearing to be the perfect mother.
Last night, Savannah appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and the host didn’t hesitate to bring up what had to have been one of Guthrie’s most memorable interviews. The Today host confessed that she felt bad for Mady and Cara, saying, “I was really surprised, because they came in, and I thought the girls had something on their minds and they wanted to get it off their chest, so I was really surprised when they didn’t say too much. But I was kind of empathetic to them, because it isn’t easy to get up on national television.”
Cohen then asked Savannah the question everyone was thinking, “In the galaxy of appearing unlikable, how unlikable was Kate”during the interview? Savannah, who unlike Kate Gosselin knows how to handle an awkward moment, joked, “Is this the ‘Plead the Fifth’ segment?”
So what did you think about Mady and Cara’s awkward interview? Do you think Savannah did a good job of trying to defend the girls on Watch What Happens Live? Tell us in the comments!
