Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom Kate Gosselin loves routine, and order, and who can blame her? Can you imagine having multiples and not any sort of plan mapped out for your daily activities? But is Kate too strict? A video has surfaced, and it portrays Kate in a not-so-flattering light… or are we looking at it all wrong?
Video after the jump
From Huffington Post:
The video, taken during an appearance on ‘Access Hollywood,’ shows one of the twins, Mady, telling her mom she’s thirsty.
“I want a drink. I haven’t had a drink all day, Mady exclaims, head in hand, as Kate ignores her. “I’m going to get dehydrated!”
Kate then claims, “Yes, me too,” and asks for a bottle of water.
Water in hand, Kate sips some, puts the bottle down and does not offer Mady any.
As the kid pleads, “I need a drink now” Kate tells her to “be quiet,” to which Mady says, “You’re really, really mean!”
Watch the clip:
OK… I’m going to defend Kate. We don’t know what happened prior to that bit of footage, right? Maybe Kate had asked each of the kids if they wanted a drink, maybe some of the kids said yes, maybe some said no. Maybe Mady declined her chance to have a drink and then, as we all know, kids will sometimes change their minds at the most inconvenient time. And you know if she had of given Mady a drink, then all the other kids would have piped up… been there, done that (well, not that I’ve been interviewed on TV by Access Hollywood), but you get what I mean.
And if you watch the last few seconds of the video clip, Kate reaches down and is going to give Mady the water bottle, but she must get word that they are about to go on air and she’s not able to hand her daughter the water.
I don’t think Kate is the harsh mom she is sometimes made out to be.
