The former reality television mom is making headlines once again for an interview with her two teenage daughters, Cara and Mady, in which they had an opportunity to speak out about all the inaccuracies about their family and that they are stable and mentally healthy and doing “just fine,” despite their parents’ public and oftentimes nasty divorce and battle.
The former stars of Jon and Kate Plus 8 were on the Today Show on Thursday morning, and when prompted by host Savannah Guthrie to answer a few questions surrounding the gossip fodder that they are “damaged,” the two 13-year-old girls froze in front of the cameras instead.
For two children who grew up with television cameras all around their house, many point out that their sudden speechlessness seemed rather out of character.
Kate tried to get her daughters to speak, saying: “It’s your chance, spit it out. This is the most wordless I’ve heard them all morning. I don’t want to speak for them but, Mady, go ahead. Sort of the things that you said in (People) magazine, that years later they’re good, they’re fine. Go for it, it’s your chance.”
“No,” Mady replied, smiling. “You just said it.”
Um, awkward much?
I’m guessing that either the girls didn’t want to follow their mother’s script or perhaps were hoping to be anywhere else but there. Most of the segment continued awkwardly with both Cara and Mady looking at their mother for answers. Kate for her part was also visibly frustrated during the interview as well.
Perhaps the girls should have stayed in school Thursday morning, instead.
