Kate Gosselin Scolds Kids on Today Show: Spit It Out!

by at .  Updated at . Comments


Kate Gosselin and 13-year old twins Mady and Cara appeared this morning on Today to discuss their recent People Magazine cover and how folks have the wrong impression of how their lives have been effed up by reality television.

Except when Savanna Guthrie asked Mady what she wants to say about how she and her siblings are doing… the teenager pretty much ignored the question.

"Mady, your words," Kate told her child in a tone TLC viewers know well. "It's your chance. Spit it out."

Seriously. It was beyond uncomfortable for all involved.

Over the past few weeks, Jon Gosselin has gone back on the attack against his ex-wife. He has referred to her as exploitive, broke and greedy.

"This is their chance to talk and this is the most wordless I've heard them all morning," Kate said when Cara also remained silent this 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."

And the little girl finally did.

"You just said it," the teenager replied to a question directed to her sister, who was asked if they think people have the wrong impression of them. "I wouldn't say wron. I would just say not the full story. A lot of people think that filming our show has damaged us, but it's only really helped."

That didn't sound rehearsed at all.

It's safe to say Kate deserves a spot below, isn't it?


I recognise that behaviour she is controlling, abusive, demeaning, belittling her teenage daughters on national TV, will little regard to how that will affect their daily school life or their future confidence. This woman has major problems. I wonder if she hits her children, it's Mommy Dearest all over again in my opinion.


she was a bitch when she was married too,. an unbearable woman. men beware, maybe that is why she is still alone.


the worst mother in ages.


My friend Joan has just married to a handsome black man.
They met through ~ ♥ MixedSingle.Çom ♥ ~Here is most successful Interracial online dating site for mixed race singles share their life and love with friends online. It is a nice dạting service for Interracial singles to find their romantic soul mate.. You can meet (lawyers,busy professionals, CEO,benefactors. models, celebrities, etc….). If you are single , worthy a try.ttttttttttttttttttttttttttxvzxv


Why awkward? I guess parents aren't allowed to scold their unruly children any more.


Wonder if Cara isn't developmentally disabled. Something was really off about her.


I wonder if this was their way of being defiant? I don't believe for one minute these kids wanted to be there. In Kate's first sentence, she bad mouthed their dad! What's wrong with this deranged woman? So very sad..


I mean, yeah it's awkward to be "scolded" by your parent on TV, but those girls were just staring like they didn't speak English. I always grew up believing it was rude to just stare at someone and not answer when asked a question.
