Kate and the twins on the Today show

Watch the segment.

Thursday, 1/16. Check local listings.

Jon's response: "I just feel horrible for my twins. You would only know as a parent. I wish I could've rescued them. I only knew they were doing Today early this morning. It looked like the twins had a moral dilemma -- 'are we supposed to say it now? Or Maybe we shouldn't say that.' I'm here for them, I love them. They could call me with anything in the world. When I see them for custody next week I'm gonna hug them and ask how's school - I'm going to be a parent first thing."

I still can't believe she's sunk low enough to push her teenage daughters (with no talents) into this. What will she say to them when they don't receive a tv show out of these appearances?

sands thru the hr.glass said...

I do hope this isn't a train wreck. I wonder if Jon is wringing his hands.

You're up to bat next week, Jon. *sigh*

DisgustedwithKate said...

Mady and Cara have no business whatsoever being on the Today show or The View. Unfortunately, like their mother they possess no talent. Kate is exploiting the girls to further her own agenda for fame, imo. Kate seems to believe that just because she put her family on television, they have now been elevated to "star"/celebrity status. About Robert and his book, I do not think the book will ever be published because he would always have potential lawsuits hanging over his head. Perhaps he could sell(?)/tell his story to InTouch Weekly/National Enquier/NaughtybutNice Rob (yes I know these are considered rag mags but they are the only outlets interested in the Gosselin saga). These outlets would have their own legal departments and they would have to deal with Kate not Robert. I personally would like to see an "expose" by a reputable source like Anderson Cooper or 60 minutes but that would never happen. Perhaps Robert could team up with Paul Petersen or at least ask him for advice on how to get his book published without threats of a lawsuit.

Meagler said...

Bringing this over from last thread:

I made my post about asking people not to fire dirty shots at the girls and went off to deal with some other stuff and it looks like it created a bit of a war zone.

My reason for coming to this blog is to try and figure out a way to protect not only the gosselin kids but any kids who will end up in the world of reality tv or otherwise on the old boob tube. Is it my biggest and only passion? ..No! I have bigger fish to fry and greater passions closer to home to use my social activism on, but they all relate to kids and protecting them.

In my post #55 I copied the New York Child entertainment law. Permits are required, but as others have said, being interviewed on a news show likely does not fall under the scope of this law. Unless they are being paid, then it would/should but likely a grey area.

Here is a link to a site that will show you the map of the United States. You can click on any state and it will tell you whether there is a law for that state, if a working permit is required, and a quick snippet to what that law might be:

http://www.dol.gov/whd/state/childentertain.htm#NewYork

If M&C required the Principal or Superintendent of their school to sign the working permit giving permission for the girls to miss school, do you really think that person would NOT sign it?

If it was the Mayor of New York who needs to sign that working permit, do you really think that person is NOT going to sign it?

I dont think these people are going to go against the grain for a tv interview.

AS for the state that filmed Kid nation, where 40 kids under 16 were left in the desert for 40 days without adult supervision, That occurred in New Mexico, and they now seem to have some of THE strictest laws!!!

For those of you who had my back while I was gone THANK YOU!


abby said...

Who mentioned the twins starting twitter accounts? Greedy Gosselins? I'm betting she's right! Kate can only keep them off social media for so long...and then all hell is going to break loose!

Meagler said...

Interesting, The Gosselins are not listed on the Today shows listing.

Mona said...

Is it even remotely possible the twins have already been offered a spot on some show, even a one day gig? This media tour might be part of the promotional contract to get people to tune in.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

I bet it was a last minute begging thing from Kate trying to find some forum to rebut Jon.

My TV listings show Isabella Rosallini. Exactly how delusional do you have to be to think that you are even worthy of breathing the same air as a living legend like her? What do they contribute here that could ever come close to her? There are real celebrities like Isabella, and then there are riff raff. And Kate much like Farrah and Taylor is painfully clueless she is riff raff.

OrangeCrusher1 said...

Just looking at this new topic makes me sad. And mad. There is no reason, none, that I can think of for giving that pathetic biotch any air time. As for her daughters, nope, no reason they should be on tv, the cover of People, anywhere but school. Back to sad, and mad. Frankly, if there is any conversation about divorce, and their father, someone should call Child Protective Services.

Starz22 said...

I don't understand how she is still getting on shows. I won't be watching. Jon has been on shows to promote the reality show he was just on with OUT the kids. TFW is trying to make the twins into the new Olson Twins. They are billionaires right? Everything Teenager? Please... C and M are anything BUT real teenagers. TFW does NOT allow them to be REAL teenagers.
Their new found bff relationship with TFW is gonna fade fast. When no one bites and signs the twins for anything...TFW will turn on them....telling them they didn't want it bad enough...they should have tried harder. In the same breath she will tell them to thank their sperm donor for bringing it all to an end. It's all his fault...he is the reason you don't get the trips anymore..or the clothes...or the 1st class treatment.

TFW is sick and needs help. She's never going to get it cause no one wants to report on it. She is a bitch in every way.
Please don't watch to give ratings...I'm sure we will have many here who are willing to take one for the team..../snicker

TLC stinks said...

I believe TFW kept this under raps from Jon or it was a last minute booking. I feel bad for the girls to be paraded out like this. I guess TFW has convinced the girls they are a hot item. Easy for her to do since the girls have drifted away from Jon. I guess I have been naive thinking it was teen girls wanting to be closer to their mother, but she apparently has been filling their heads with crap for months. She is hateful, vengeful, and just plain a mental case. So sad for all the kids.

I got to say just when we think we have exhausted talking about the Gosselins, one or both pull something.

ITA Robert should be able to get his story out. Unfortunately his reputation after his book fiasco has dampened any hope for the story to be told. He blew it.

Kate tweeted that the twins will be "talking all stuff teenager". Whatever the heck that means. The twins turned 13 three months ago. They are three months into being a teenager. Need I say more to such ridiculousness!

Don't be surprised if they make other media appearances while in New York. After hitting up The Today Show and The View Kate's MO is to hit up Extra, E, Entertainment Tonight, or whoever will have her and the twins.

Mamasan said...

Kate has wanted the twins on TV since early days. Badly. Why didn't she invest in acting/singing/dancing lessons for them? The Gosselin kids are kids, just kids. Remember the gym episode? Leah wanted to continue with lessons. Cara enjoyed sports activities w/Jon. But that didn't last to many episodes. The Alaska trip should have been an eye-opener to her fans. Kate couldn't bite the bullet because the focus wasn't on her. Kids enjoyment has not been on her radar, ever. Message to Kate: paybacks are H* ll.

Harrisburg Native said...

I've been following everything closely here from England the past several months. Rarely check in, but I read daily. If it's any consolation, there are never ANY mentions of Kate here that I can see, whether that's on TV or the celeb magazines. I've brought up Kate to several people if conversation goes to parents with multiples and I'm always met with blank stares.

I remember when I was 13, and my parents had divorced when I was 9. It was an awful, depressing time for me. My parents didn't speak to each other. I remember feeling pity for my dad. It was only several years later when I was 15 that I started counseling for a lot of issues related to the divorce.

The twins are in such a desperately sad position of being put on public display with their feelings, especially towards their father. The information Kate feeds them has no doubt impacted them in some way. I remember bad mouthing my dad around my grandma because she was so hate-filled towards him. I did it for her approval. I didn't understand a lot of what I was doing at the time. So as much as I look in on the twins and feel frustrated with their speaking out, I know that mentally there is a LOT going on there and they need professional counseling and support from extended family during this time. Kate is pushing them towards hate, and it sickens me.

Side note, anyone else here from the north-east of England??

Terri said...

This must have been real last minute. Kate was NOT mentioned in the opening of Today show. So as far as anyone watching, they don't even know she's supposed to be on. Unless she's going to be on the hour with Hoda and Kathie. Seems like the Today show anchors don't even know she's there. LOL

Vanessa said...

Well, just like the old days, a new topic almost every day! Thought those days were over...

Her madness/insanity is only getting worse. Remember the decorated stroller. They (everyone and anyone in contact with her) are her props, her puppets, her property to do with as she sees fit. There is nobody else who comes before her. People, babies to adults, are there to serve her delusional self. Jon's confirmed that she absolutely keeps them isolated, that they are not allowed friends-this is an abuser's ammo-those kids are being brainwashed, Stockholm Syndrome style. Whatever happened in her childhood to make her this way...my fear is those kids will turn out worse. THEY have lived a more dysfunctional, more abusive, more BIZARRE life than she did. Look at the Lindsays, the Beibers etc. Just wait for it...

Localyocul said...

I wonder if they are watching the show from the green room. I get the feeling they don't get much of current events at home. Coming up later are twins one of whom gave up her spot on the Olympic team for another. Hard working talented selfless twins. Anyway 13 is barely a teenager. TFW seems to consider them practically grown. 13 is such a baby compared to 16 or 17 which is a baby compared to 21 or 22. What my dd felt at 12 is worlds away from what she feels now at 17.

********************************************************

Sadly, I believe this scenario. And yes, they are anything but "normal"
ORDINARY teens. If that's her latest hook, won't happen. Reality is scripted, they can't pull it off, they are not good actors, PERIOD. They were just starting to be very conscious of the cameras, can you imagine after 3 yrs? They have not been allowed to interact with peers, SHE'S their only friend??? She's the one they get their social cues from? Well if the draw is going to be twins acting like their bitch of a mother, good luck.

Localyocul said...

I actually don't ever watch Today except when my sister has it on on vacation. I like the GMA folks. Do you think they'll be on the after showboat whatever with Hoda and Kathy Lee? Weren't they just dissing TFW?

Vanessa said...

I remember bad mouthing my dad around my grandma because she was so hate-filled towards him. I did it for her approval.
***********************************************************************

EXACTLY! And what else did you know at 13? She makes them out to be so "worldly"? It's because they agree with her and tow the line. When you believe you are omnipotent and know EVERYTHING and you have "yes" people (the twins) it increases your delusions. And you beat them down until they do as you say/believe everything you say, whether through words, punishments, bribes and yes FISTS

Vanessa said...

And it just baffles me as to why her journal is NEVER EVER mentioned? Even if she regurgitates the same "my lawyers have advised me" spiel, at least it may get viewers questioning...she has to be stopped being rewarded and coddled. If some are against Jon calling her out, maybe the media needs to. You know? the entity that is supposed to educate, enlighten and EXPOSE? Stop having her on unless she's willing to address the TRUTH

Terri said...

I was thinking that couldn't Jon have his attorney contact these shows and state that Jon does not want his children to appear on said show and will file suit against them if they proceed. Wouldn't that be enough for them to pull the kids off, just not worth the hassle.

Vanessa said...

they just had a quick shot of them
awkward

Localyocul said...

@TODAYshow: RT @Kateplusmy8 Cara & Mady are SO honored to be on @TODAYshow, talking all stuff 'teenager' (while I'm thinking stop growing up SO fast!)

@NYChaseter: @TODAYshow Kate Gosselin??? Time to turn to @GMA !! #whocares

Tucker's Mom said...

OMG, just waking up and checking in and wtf? Kate's dragging the girls onto talk shows now?
Just saw they're going to be on Today.

JoyinVirginia said...

I'm watching Good Morning America with my fave George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts. Interesting story, Courtney Love is being sued for defamation for something she tweeted about her former attorney. Its a landmark court case, and could set a precedent that someone could be sued for defamation for tweets. The judge has to decide if this is opinion or libel.
Who woulda thought, Courtney Love and landmark court case would be mentioned in same sentence?
I stopped watching Today long ago, when Ann Curry was dumped so cruelly. Matt Lauer has become another Bryant Gumbel. Icky.

Tucker's Mom said...

Next show?
Growing up Gosselin.
Wanna take bets???

Vanessa said...

"reality star "tfw" and her two oldest..." what? the twins aren't STARS????
"going to talk about how it REALLY is like growing up in a reality tv family"...
Yup, desperation, she's teaching them very well. Someone else posted and I agree. Why pay for the expensive private school? She's teaching them everything they're going to need to know...disgusting

Anonymous said...

Kate looks awful this morning. Too bony, not an ounce of fat left on her small frame. Her chin looks huge! She looks like she has aged ten years in two years. Sad. Her face says it all, mental health is in bad shape and bitterness. I'm just amazed how terrible she looks.

Stella

Tucker's Mom said...

Yup, Kate and the twins are poised and read on the Today set. Ready to "respond".
I hate her more than ever. I can not begin to fathom dragging kids into this.
Jon- I'm so sorry that you have a twisted, evil ex-wife who is poisoning your children.
So, the twin are missing how many school days?

Bad enough when you live with a narcissist and you have to pretend that your mother is the greatest, that you're home is normal. With this it'll be 100x worse. Cameras on them???

You know her PAP hatred? She's dreeeeaammmming of those days. She wants all that frenzy back. She wants to be followed she wants to be scrutinized, she wants to be talked about. She wants to be HATED How can she be permitted to make this choice for her kids? HOW?
WHO can say she's a good mother? HOW can anyone make this statement. So effing sick of 'putting food on the table" excuse.
AGREE AGREE AGREE KATE GOSSELIN IS A PIMP AND FAMEWHORE

Vanessa said...

So true Tucker, hate her even more. HATE

The Empress Has New Clothes said...

Wouldn't it be just like TFW, to have M & C announce the #BeKindGetSigned winners on the Today show, as a way of demonstrating their sweet, charitable spirits. Or to at least discuss that not-a-contest, to show how the G8 works together as a team, to give back to their community/fans. And oh, the cookbook itself is a collaborative venture, don't ya know, what with M contributing photos & C editing the text.

Tucker's Mom said...

So, to summarize, the twins speak "their truth" but, let's not leave it at that, Kate. No, really, how do the really feel? There's some push back on the People article, so, let's get the kids on the talk show circuit.
Isn't that how it's done?
Sick, sick, sick woman.
I can not believe Kate is burdening the twins with this.
"Prove my side of the story, girls!!!!!"
"Set the record straight"
"DO MY BIDDING!!!"

Terri said...

EPIC FAIL!! The kids don't want to talk at all, Kate's getting pissed.

I am confused. I missed the opening of The Today show. Did they announce they were going to be on the show? If not, then when did they show the shot of them?

I noticed Natalie is there. Remember she extensively interviewed Kate years ago. I believe it was in 2009. And she held up all the tabloids with Kate on the cover and told Kate that it was her fault that she did this to her kids (paraphrasing of course). I hope she interviews Kate today and gives her a hard interview.

Berks Neighbor said...

THREE LETTERS:
OMG! The girls don't even want to talk and TFW is talking 'for' them.
Savannah just challenged TFWs decision to put them out there for public scrutiny.

This is just painful to watch, Kids are mumbling and don't want to talk, think that they will be getting their asses reamed out. Kate should be ashamed.

That just totally blew up in Kate's emancipated, aged face. Awful. I feel so bad for those girls! But we are all spot on about the abuse, manipulation and goading. That interview spelled it out for all of America.

On the Today show this morning, the twins were tongue tied, and Kate was furious. It is obvious that Kate co-erced them.

swimgirl said...

Watching the show now. Beginning with an old rehash of how they became 8. Neither girl will talk. They are looking at each other and will not look at Savannah or answer her questions. Finally, an answer, but very, very awkward. Obviously, not comfortable being in front of the camera. Fortunately, Kate's gift of gab kicks in and now she is blabbing on and on. Kate does not pay attention to the negative stuff, but for some reason, she has to set the record straight.

Both would absolutely do another show, but alas, they blew their chance by showing how uncomfortable they are in front of cameras. Sorry, Kate, horribly, uncomfortable interview. The girls are normal teens just like all of our normal teens.

Now, I can to back to CBS this morning. I can not stand the Today show.

Vanessa said...

OMG!! Just caught the end...did I hear correctly??!!
Mady said "we're fabulous" !!! whispered it in her mother's ear???!!

Tucker's Mom said...

Segment on now.
Montage....rehash the old show.
Rehash the divorce.
Old footage of the La Fair trial.

Kate's looking at the girls like...."act like you're on tv.'
Mady and Cara ARE SPEECHLESS
OMG
OMG
Kate is speaking for them
OMG
Kate's berating them to speak
omg
Mady- people don't have the full story. Filming has helped. Very, very stilted
Kate's speaking for them again. Party line. Kate "informs" them about stuff
Savanah- you're helping them by putting them on the spot here? Does it continue injury?
Kate- No injury!!
I couldn't force them to do this
Girls look LOST
Kate- "family decision, they agreed to it"
Kate says she's extrememly frustrated
Kate's putting words into the girls' mouths
filming? girls say FUN!!
Kate wants the fun filming opps
Kate- filming will be family decision


Holy shit!!!!!!!!!
The girls were so tongue tied....
They are so obviously manipulate. When asked about the situation they are in, they are literally sitting there stymied. They obviously can not speak their minds.
I feel SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry for them. Obviously, this is new and they were sooooooooooo put on the spot, as Savannah surmised. Their appearance was AWFUL, STILTED AND OBVIOUSLY MANIPULATED BY KATE.
I would not want to even know the wrath that Kate is going to unleash on them after this absofuckinglute disaster.

Jon-my God, go back to court and stop Kate from trying to use your precious twins as her mouthpiece.
And, btw, Jon, I have no doubts that the People interview was manipulated and that your girls LOVE YOU very much.
They couldn't even be bribed with a deluxe trip to NYC and do Kate's bidding against you.

URL said...

Just watching the Today show now. Cara didn't even speak and Mady barely spoke. TFW did the majority of speaking for them. I don't see a future for these girls in television. They were awkward and uncomfortable during the interview. TFW said they were tongue tied. It's so sad that TFW feels the need to throw them on these shows.

Paula said...

Jon was right!!! These girls don't want to be on TV and their mother IS exploiting them. Take that sheeple....

Berks Neighbor said...

TFW asked for it...and now she's reaping the 'rewards'. The Twitter Feed is BLOWING UP and not with the 'haters'. Mediocre folk are chiming in. Jon has pretty much been vindicated when it comes to the truth he spoke about the kids not wanting to be on TV.

Right after this interview, I wish I could give this scripture to M and C.

Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am Your God. I will strengthen you and I will help you. I will hold you up with My victorious Right Hand. Isaiah 41:10

I received this in my email from K love the other day.

I am just heartsick for those girls right now. Jon should of been able to contact his lawyer, even Shawn Tuma and it would of just taken a phone call. But, if he would of done that and shut her down, can you imagine the major major meltdown she would perform for everyone to see and the girls would have to deal with it and upsetting them. I feel so bad for them.

I knew someone who's son and his brother had got into a fight over a game box, but they hit each other a couple of times and then quit. They didn't get hurt, just one wanting to take it back to school with them. One said, ok, just take it. And it was over with. Someone called the police and they came and they have to take somebody to jail, so the older son went. He was 18 and his mother called her classmate that she graduated with and told him the situation and he called city hall and told them he was a minor and if his name went on the books to be published in the paper he was going to sue them big time. He is the best attorney in the county. His last name opens many doors. He did this to save his mother the embarrassment and shame because it wouldn't of happened if her husband would of been there. He had just left and divorced her and moved out of state. He even got him out with no charge and no washing the police cars for a month. He is now planning for going for his doctorate in education.

AnnieD said...

"Kate and twin daughters speak out"....and what do the twins say? Nothing! Their big moment was a big bust. Cara didn't say anything and Mady...not much. Savannah asked Kate if it was a good idea to put the girls on the spot like that and add to the "injury". What an embarrassing fiasco for the girls.
Well, Kate, the name alone isn't going to do it. The kids need to have talent.....in something.

Awful, simply awful. If Jon sees this, he'll be in tears. Those poor girls. I feel for them when they go back to school - teenage girls can be cruel.

cathyn518 said...

OMG, that was just awful. Maddie and Cara were practically mute. I am so worried for the retribution they will face from Kate. Their nonperformance will kill any future tv appearances although I bet the View is still on and you can bet Kate will whip them into being more talkative for that performance .But boy, T\that was painful to watch, those poor girls. At one point Maddie asked Cara "do you want me to say it" so clearly they were rehearsed but it didn't help. I so hope they are not ridiculed in school for this. It was horrible for them, so bad that although I am glad Kate did not succeed in her efforts to use these girls to further her goals, I feel more horrible for them than happy that Kate's exploitation did not succeed. I was happy that Savanah asked Kate point blank if the continued discussion of this didn't make it worse for the girls. I don't know, did Maddie and Cara deliberately do this to sandbag their Mom? I always thought the kids would be the ones to expose who their Mother truly is.

OMG is right Tucker's Mom. They will pay for this, pay dearly. Now it'll be THEIR fault the "family" didn't get a teevee show!! MY GOD can she not see their anguish! who am I kidding she sees NONE of their feelings, needs, wants...SHE IS BEYOND HELP. From the impacted colon to this display, things are always and will be the same.

Tucker's Mom said...

For those who didn't watch, let me tell you that what I saw was not girls who were overwhelmed by the set and being on live tv. No. What I saw was Savannah coming out of the gate with a question that they were made very uncomfortable by.
The girls were put on the spot to basically do as Kate does- speak out against their father (for all intents and purposed) and say that everything is rainbows and unicorns.
And they could not speak something that is not their truth.
Milo and Kate's other minions will spin this as the twins being shy and inexperienced. But, the truth is that the girls just could not lie. You can see it written all over their faces.
If Savannah asked them about how much they love 1 Directions, they would have blabbed and blabbed, but the subject matter was and adult subject and obviously one they are conflicted about.
Screw you, Kate. So much for your bffs being your mouthpiece.

Ugh, blech! I can't believe I'm this incensed this early in the day!!
Holy shit, I'm so fucking mad.
Sorry for my potty mouth...

Oh my that was so painful! The girls were sweet but to put them in that situation was just sad.

thuvia1944 said...

Okay ladies, I am watching the Gosselin trainwreck on Today. The girls are lovely teens, but they say very little in answer to some very pointed questions. Cara, tips her head and covers her face with her hair and mumbles she liked filming. Mommy manages to get in her usual dig at Jon and the rest is the usual crap about how the family is fine, they make choices together, blah blah.
It is very interesting that the girls are so reluctant to speak out. Have they read the People reviews and are trying for a better image. Or is tv very different from a print interview.
Did they forget how intrusive lights, camera and a microphone in your face can be?
The demonic baby used to advert a new movie was more interesting.
At least the creators had more talent in a pinkie to than all three Gosselins possess together.

I bet the twins spend the rest of today and the entire weekend rehearsing for Monday's appearance. Over and over.

TFW: It's not good enough! Do it again!
Kids: Bur mom! We've already practiced it 8,888,888 times!
TFW: I said do it again! Sreve! Get in here!

AND there's no screaming audience on the Today show. What's going to happen on the View when they're in front of a crowd? JON, I hope you manage to stop this!

Gosselin is now TRENDING on twitter.
TFW got her 'trending' fame but it's biting her in the a$$ big time.

I <3 that those girls ended up being normal "don't put me on TV" teenagers.
I'm sure C was thinking in the back of her mind. "Can't I just go to LaCrosse practice and hang with my friends this weekend?"

I wonder if they will delete that interview from the West Coast version? So painful for those girls.

Savanah- you're helping them by putting them on the spot here? Does it continue injury?
**********************************************************************

Did Savannah say this?? good for her
******
Yup, the attorney side of Savannah came out and said what we're ALL thinking. Why, why, why Kate, would you put your daughters in this position?
The girls just could not lie for her.
They were not so shy that they couldn't speak. When Savannah took the conversation to a place that was not threatening to the girls, they opened up just fine.
I hope that any other host that is scheduled to interview them as Kate's mouthpieces, sees this interview and REFUSES to go "there" with them.
This is beyond cruel.

OMG "Kate Gosselin" is also trending. This is Awesome Sauce!!!!!!!!

Ingrid said...

Kate's twitter is exploding! I saw 750 tweets per hour once (twazzup) . Many new names tweeting how disgusted they were with Kate for putting the girls through that. I can't hardly keep up reading them all. I hope this is the time Kate puts a nail in her own coffin by doing this!

It is later in my time zone so haven't seen it yet.

Oh I see The Orange Room is where the interview took place. So The Orange Room, The Today Show, and Kate Gosselin are all trending. She is a laughing stock.

Localyocul said...

@LuvDanceDream: @TODAYshow @Kateplusmy8 Looks like Jon Gosselin is right after watching that interview.

lukebandit said...

I have the Today show on and it hasn't came on yet. But the early reports...Oh. MY. LANTA!

Jon can use this against kate and get a RO to prevent her from putting them back on tv. Jon needs to stop the VIEW INTERVIEW!

They just showed them sitting on the couch. kate saw the camera light on and the girls were not smiling, Cara looked sad, then kate quickly looked to Mady and then to Cara to see if they were smiling.

What a horrible, horrible twisted mentally ill monster mom.

AnnieD said...

Kate told Mady to speak "her words" like she did for the magazine interview. Probably never were Mady's words which is why she couldn't say them.
Maybe Kate will now be struck from the Today show guest roster. She has nothing new to say and her kids have nothing to say.

Tucker's Mom said...

Of course the kids want to film again. They don't do diddly squat without cameras. Of course they want fun trip. What kid wouldn't.
But, Kate, dear, no one but a few of your sick, twisted sycophants want to see you and your kids live the 1% life on TV, when they are struggling to get by.
Time to give another family a chance at traveling the world, getting toys, clothes and any other freebie you can think of, and of course, skip school! Wheeeeeeee!

Yes Luke, they are going to need it. Poor things. Between their mother's wrath and having to go to school...at least they absolutely have public sympathy. And they totally vindicated themselves about J and A by refusing to badmouth today.

Berks Neighbor said...

There was one point in the interview where I saw "C" turn to TFW with an almost 'plea' look on her face that said she didn't want to be there.
I could be projecting, but still...
This was something that was uncalled for and TFW must have phoned in a favor (or two - as she is on The View Monday) and it's busting up big time in her face.
There was no "you look great" comments, they didn't diss Jon at all. (didn't even mention him except in the background video of the demise of the marriage).

Unfortunately, the girls will now shoulder the blame from Kate for dashing her dreams of being offered another show.
Do you think that Kate will see this twitter trending as positive? I'd wager yes. Those poor girls.

jbranck1980 said...

I noticed TFW made sure to mention Jon's name when listing the 'people' who put out incorrect information and how much it bothers the twins (according to TFW). As if we needed proof she badmouths him, we now have it on film. God only knows what she says at home away from cameras if that is how she throws him under the bus IN FRONT of the twins on national TV....

It was basically asking them to reiterate what they said in People, how everything is hunky dory, and they just couldn't, because it would be tantamount to saying "my dad's a liar".
But, wow, Kate was doing some pretty fast footwork to "iron things out". "We make decisions together!" blah, blah, blah.
Yeah, that worked out so well for Jon, who is an adult.
Does anyone delude themselves into thinking that the kids have any say at all?
No way.
Remember what Robert reported about Mady and the Alaska trip?
Mady did NOT want to go. Jon wanted to take her for the week or so of filming because she begged him to get her out of it. Jon went to the compound's gate and Kate told him that Mady was just in a bad mood.
Right.
Jon said he'd come back the next morning to pick her up and Kate told him he'd be met with the police if he did.
So, no, the kids don't have a vote.
It's not a democracy, it's a dictatorship.

Sassafrasa said...

Kate's comment about how they decided as a "family" to appear on the Today show and participate in People interview made me furious because we know Kate makes all the decisions in that family. And, as their mother, the right decision is to keep the girls out of the media even if they are begging her to let them do it (which we know is not the case).

Those poor girls...hope they are with Jon this weekend because you know Kate is not happy with their performance and is sure to make that painfully clear to them.

Can't wait to see how Milo spins this one!

She manipulated them and they don't want to be there I hate to say it but I was right.

I know woman who do this personally my former sister-in-laws do this just on a smaller scale and it sad that a mom does this. Kate is selffish and she doesn't care what her kids want like I said be for.

I haven't seen it because I'm at work but judging by your comments I'd say that if TFW's goal was to get all eyes on her so that people would forget about Jon's first appearance on CT tonight I think it might just have worked - but not the way she'd hoped. She just proved that everything Jon said on WW was true. Wouldn't it be sweet justice if the View cancelled!

Sorry Kate but tongue-tied and shy and awkward won't get them a show. They're not naturals on camera and apparently didn't inherit your gift of gab. And your days of only answering scripted questions are apparently O.V.E.R. You did this to them FW. You put them on the cover of People and now the hard questions are going to be asked.

after reading summaries of the appearance here, probably whoever is responsible foyer the booking has completely run out of favors to call in. ever again.

Layla said...

I didn't see the show, but after reading about it--holy crap! What did TFW think she would accomplish by putting those poor girls on that show? I'm guessing nobody is interested in signing her for anything, so she decided to market C&M instead. Perhaps pass them off as some kind of teen lifestyle experts. I thought it was odd that they really seemed to be tlking a lot about clothes (who wore ugly clothes, who demanded a certain brand of jeans, mom's yoga pants) and Cara's comment about Mady's ugly hair. TFW may have been dreaming of them having a "Keeping Up With the Gosselins" kind of thing, where the girls flaunt their lifestyle, with TFW barging in as often as possible, trying to steal the spotlight from them. Then C&M would be making money again, and TFW could put away 15% for them and keep the rest for herself.
Problem is, the girls didn't perform. I bet she never considered that eventuality. They were probably coached to be bubbly and talkative, smile a lot...and they didn't come through. Now people are slamming her, the girls, the Today Show...instead of networks pounding on her door, offering millions for a show starring C&M. We know she never thought that something lke this could happen. Never.
Today Kate killed Mady's dream of becoming a Disney Channel star.

TJ said...

I just watched the interview on the Today website. It was just uncomfortable and unnecessary. I have a sick feeling in my stomach for those girls and the rest of the kids...Their mom is trying so hard to get them on tv you can see the desperation and unfortunately she is using them to stay relevant now. She even commented negatively about their father right in front of them and on as was said before...on National tv.

Kate is being slaughter on twitter. Her twins will never forgive her for this. They will remember this the rest of their lives.

And she did put down Jon. She made a comment about how people talk about them and and untrue things and she mentioned Jon in that comment.

Finally, she is getting her ass kicked. Nobody is going to hold it against the twins. People are blasting Kate not the twins.

Sheri said...

Missed it live but Today has the interview up on their site. I got about halfway through before I had to turn it off.

Those poor, poor girls. They wanted to do that my freakin' arse. I've never seen two more apprehensive, unsure and awkward expressions in my life.

Kate was indeed getting obviously annoyed...her coaching clearly did not work as well as she had hoped.

I can not imagine anyone from the View seeing that and deciding to go through with Monday's interview.

I got the distinct impression from the interviewer's demeanor though that she is not a Kate fan. Kate started in about how frustrating it was that there was so much misinformation and how they talk about it all the time because it bothers the girls. At first chance the interviewer asked flat out if Kate really believed putting the girls out there to set the record straight wasn't just adding to the injury.

Kate then says, "Well, there really is no injury." D'uh Kate, you just finished saying there was. The woman is disgusting for doing this to her children. Cara looked practically mortified.

Can't wait to see the sheeple spin on this.

lukebandit said...

That was extremely painful to watch. You could see kate seething and how nervous she got when the girls wouldn't talk. THEY LOVE LOVE LOVE THEIR DAD!!! This interview just proved it to all!!! And they wouldn't lie either. But kate got in a jab in on Jon saying that she informs them of what is said out there from sources, THEIR DAD, blah, blah, blah! What about that tweeter twit tart typing out tweets about the kids. She is so freaking CRUEL!

SHE IS MENTALLY MENTALLY MENTALLY ILL! SHE NEEDS AN INTERVENTION. THIS WEEKEND!!!

SO happy that Jon is only 4 miles away. All they have to do is call him and he could come and get them.

Today show interview and article about it.

Anonymous said...

Here's the exact quote from the Today site:
Kate Gosselin referenced Jon's comments on TODAY, saying the twins are "aware of what is out there, the inaccuracies, things that are said by the general public , their father, whoever ... their friends talk about it at school. so I sort of am forced to kind of inform them."

getofftwitter said...

Well, that was a waste of less than 5 mins. Kate of course did most of /all the talking. Kate said almost exactly what the People article said, almost word for word, so did I think Maddy. Who by the way did all the talking, of which was almost word for word from People. Maddy also looked at Kate for direction, before she said anything, then at her sister. These girls were totally coached by Kate. They acted as if they were afraid to say anything. And yes, they were asked if they want to do TV again, and almost word for word, what was in People Maddy repeated. If you want to know what they said, on Today show read the People article same thing. And yes, the girls do the ummm, ummms, just like Kate. Like a mini-me Kate. Jon does have his hands full. That was the whole interview, less than 5 mins.

Three questions asked, two answered. 1. What's it like to grow up Gosselin? 2. Something about the reality show damaging you? and 3 Do you want to do another TV show?

Nothing thing else. The girls missed school to sit there and say almost nothing, it was an excuse for Kate to get her mug back on TV. I'm sure Kate was POed at the girls for not talking.

Carole said...

Yeah, Kate, I'll bet you're "forced to inform them" of the truth about their reality.

What an awful interview and what an awful mother to put her kids through this. Perfect example though, of parental alienation when TFW brought up Jon!!

Anonymous said...

That was an awkward interview to watch, those girls have no personality that comes across on camera. They just sat there looking at Kate, who ended up doing the talking. She is probably super mad at those girls, wonder If Kate felt embarrassed by their behavior? Good luck getting them a show!

localyocul said...

OK I just watched it online. My impression is that the girls are pizzed about the way the People article portrayed them and what was quoted. It looks to me like they told TFW they would not lie today. When TFW said to Mady "use your words" or something, M gave her a look like "their not my words" and TFW goes "ooohhh". She lets her girls be sassy to her and M gave her a sassy look. And I'm glad she did.

OMG! I am literally laughing OUT LOUD. The twins looked beautiful, but when asked direct questions, they just glared at Kate and said NOTHING. It was PERFECTION. Then Kate started double talking covering for them and telling them what to say...to say what they had been programmed to say in the PEOPLE article. Nothing. Cara never said a word and finally Mady said something at the end, but when asked if the public had the wrong perception of the family, Mady said she wouldn't say "wrong." I would not want to be in the car w/ Kate on the ride home today.

Kate managed to put Jon down again while blabbering on and on. Kate was asked if she weren't doing more damage to the children by having them on t.v. with her, and her reply was that there never was any damage.

Priceless. The truth comes out.

I have a feeling those girls are going to have a penalty of severeness when they didn't "spit it out" as Kate told them to.

The twins acted like 6-year olds. Sorry, not buying that they were camera shy. They been in front of cameras since they were 3-4 years old and made MANY tv appearances.

It is so obvious Kate had a chin implant. When they showed the one minute intro before the interview, look at Kate sitting and eating at the end of the table. When she came out and sat down for her first interview in 2010 with Jimmy Kimmel for DWTS I noticed it then. Now her face looks too long. Let's see... botox, chemical peel, veneers, chin implant, fillers, boob job, breast job, liposuction. And Kate said, "who has time for plastic surgery".

And today she said something to the effect that she is so upset about the inaccuracies but she doesn't concentrate on it. What? Of course, if you are very upset about something you concentrate on it a lot. It is human nature. The woman is a compulsive liar about everything.

OT. Consider walking or running this Saturday and dedicating your miles to Meg Menzies, a young mom by a drunk driver while running on Monday.

This story is poignant on many levels. Meg was known for her smile and kindness and much loved in her community. She has three young and beautiful children, and her husband is a sheriff who has campaigned tirelessly against drunk driving with Meg's support.

To make it worse, her husband was running with her and presumably witnessed the whole thing. And the drunk driver was a doctor with leukemia who had lost HIS wife in a horrific accident 10 years before and was raising his children alone. So many lives are shattered.

Meg's Miles has gone viral and is up to 55,000 runners and walkers around the world in the three days since Meg was killed. Meg was training for the Boston Marathon.

(You can see a photo of Meg and her family on Facebook under Meg Cross Mendies.)

Forgot to mention Kate said there was no 'injury' from reality TV, and also that the girls' friends DO talk about the stuff they read and hear about the G8 at school. So she refuted Jon's claim of damage and also did agree the girls are subjected to gossip at school.

Marie said...

I can't get enough of this interview. I feel very badly for the kids. But am enjoying the very uncomfortable, awkward look on Kate's face. You get what you deserve. You reap what you sow.

Just wanted to add that I feel deeply sad for those girls and when I said I was laughing, it was at Kate being caught on live television for her manipulative, lying tactics.

It was painful to watch, and it was obvious that Savannah Guthrie felt for the girls

Thank gawd for Jon.

Kate is tweeting that they "were caught off guard doing live tv". She is freaking crazy. Got caught off guard! WTF!! They were sitting there for over an hour. They knew exactly when they were going to be on. They saw the one minute intro. Kate is delusional...she really is. Kate will not cancel The View. It is up to the The View to cancel to save these girls from their mother.

They have been on TV since age 4. They have been interviewed on their show many times. And they have been on many New York TV interview shows before with the entire family. "Got caught off guard", I am speechless.

Slow clap for the attempted spin, Kate.
The twins acted like 6-year olds. Sorry, not buying that they were camera shy. They been in front of cameras since they were 3-4 years old and made MANY tv appearances.
They were put in a very bad position and told to tell lies, and they wanted to speak their truth. You could see it in their eyes.
OMG... again.

&&&

Wow. Just wow.

It hasn't aired here yet but t feel awful for them that it went so badly and yet I'm glad it went so badly because hopefully that means the end of T.V. appearances. I just hope they aren't being punished for this by Kate for not "performing."

Tucker I think your assessment is probably spot on. They're comfortable around cameras so what gives? Like you said, they couldn't lie. Deep down they know they are being made Kate's puppet and when the rubber meets the road they couldn't perform.

I KNEW if it were live T.V. this would be a whole different ballgame. They choked, and I'm not surprised.

swimgirl said...

TFW just tweeted this...

@Aellis114 LOL. Have you ever had the opp to do Live tv? It can be scary! M and C were honored to be interviewed 2 celebrate #teenageyrs

So now they were on to celebrate teenage years?? Ummmmm, really?!! I thought they were on to set the record straight She really thinks that if she says something, it makes it true. So sad, but TFW can not stop all the negative feedback that is flying all over the internet now.

Formerly Duped said...

And it was not their first live TV interview. Mady had a lot of negative things to say at age 8? about the tups, and they were on many other talk shows.I think Cara is quiet in public by nature ( then explodes as Jon once explained and we saw several times on the show) If Kate is hoping to 'package' the twins as a init for TV, god luck. I have seen nothing but criticism of Kate and empathy for the twins in comments.

They could be much different at home as many people are,(#yogapantsgate) and be bratty entitled kids, but I did feel sorry for them in front of a live audience clammed up and looking in terror at their mother for help.

Does anyone think that the girls planned this between themselves like it was a big, gigantic FU to Kate?
*****
If only.
No, it wasn't an FU to Kate, rather, it was 2 young girls scared shitless to speak their truth and answer Savannah's question honestly.
They just couldn't lie the way Kate does. Kate lies like she breathes, and to condition and influence young children to do the same is unconscionable.
That Kate brought Jon up by name (or "their father" whatever) when trying to tell Savannah that people lie about her and her kids, was beyond the pale.
In front of her twins!
On national television!

I can not fathom what is said and done at home.
Remember Robert's account of the twins with their faces pressed against a rainy window, watching Kate scream at Jon, kicking him off the property and calling the police?
I can't imagine what they live through.

Oh, and girls, more good news!! You will be talked about over and over and over again later today on the tabloid shows! Yes! Your interview, your embarrassing interview will be replayed for everyone to see!
I bet your friends and classmates won't miss it!!
It will be on their dvr's and media devices for years to come!
Wheeeeeee!

Kate's twittering nonsense about them being "caught off-guard by live TV." Um, isn't that the very nature of Reality TV? Allegedly.They gave couch interviews countless times. This was different…how?

I'm like so pi$$ed at Kate I'm going to step away and take a walk and have some breakfast.

At least Katee looked skinny-(igh). She looked so thin if she keep on staving her self she'll disappear.

localyocul said...

Time for the interview to hit the West Coast!

Vanessa said...

I have a feeling those girls are going to have a penalty of severeness when they didn't "spit it out" as Kate told them to.
***********************************************************

She won't rage at them in NY (she'll save that for the CONPOUND) but I'm sure she's lecturing them, has her sour puss face on, will be slamming stuff etc...a hissy fit more or less. Just adding more stress to the twins lives because this morning wasn't enough

Mady told Kate NO when Kate told her go ahead answer it's your chance to spit it out?

Forgive me but oh sh&t! Are we SURE they didn't plan this?

It's their chance to spit it out? What the hell Kate. They are 13. Why should they care about setting the record straight?

Again, I don't think anyone, including the general public, that saw the interview think anything negative about the twins. They know they were pushed by their mother and they were scared. But the general public is slaughtering Kate in Twitterville and I am loving it. It is about time.

You got it. Never embarrassed about her behavior though

Sheri said...

What really broke my heart was Cara just sitting there not looking at the camera, not looking at the interviewer, staring awkwardly at nothing almost as if wishing herself out of existence. She just looked so scared, so broken.

There is no way on this green earth is anyone going to convince me that that child wanted to do that interview. No way.

Localyocul said...

@BlckdByJilZarin: Wow. Sad, awkward video of the day. Kate Goselin's twins go silent on Today & Kate shows her ass. :-( http://t.co/ycKOPdQA8E

@ChicagoTVChick: @BlckdByJilZarin UNBELEIVABLE!

@BlckdByJilZarin: @ChicagoTVChick uh huh. Clearly the twins have NO room for error before Kate jumps on them.

@ChicagoTVChick: @BlckdByJilZarin I feel so sad 4 them! I understand being nervous on live TV, but there is something draconian going on behind the scenes...

@BlckdByJilZarin: @ChicagoTVChick I'm sure Kate had them well rehearsed & they froze. So kate snaps her fingers in hope of helping them remember their lines

@Flowerchic462: @ChicagoTVChick @BlckdByJilZarin I love how she bashed their father on national television as they are sitting right next to her.

@ChicagoTVChick: @BlckdByJilZarin Did you see John Gosselin's interview with Wendy Williams? Am I kind of crazy for believing him?

“A lot of people think that filming our show has damaged us, but it’s only really helped.”

Helped how so exactly?

Sweetheart, this is a nice line from your mom but your are 13. The vast majority of child stars who have had issues were still living it up at 13. Still cute, still working, still partying, still normal. It's not until 18, 19 that the realities hit in. Check back with us then.

FlimsyFlamsy said...

On MSN homepage - #4 story: "Gosselin girls go silent during
interview...clammed up on live TV." TFW put them out there
on a golden platter. There is not an ounce of maternal instinct
in her.

Kudos to the fan who spoke out against her. That took courage.
Any mother who loves and protects her children would do the same.

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

And they totally vindicated themselves about J and A by refusing to badmouth today.

&&&

Yes they did. I'm proud of them.

That says to me how heavily manipulated the People interview was. But when put on the spot they won't do it. That says that their GUT reaction is not to trash their father, and only when Kate manipulates and forces it on them did they do it. That also says they learned something from what they did. GOOD FOR THEM.

JudyK said...

Administrator, when you do see this, notice at the end how tightly Mady is clenching and wringing her hands together. I think both girls were afraid of the consequences for not performing like trained seals for their Mom.

LisaNH said...

I just watched the interview on NBC's website. I think the one I am most concerned about is Cara. She just seemed traumatized by the who thing. Maddy played along, somewhat but Cara was almost catatonic.

I am thinking that Kate's idea was to get the kids on the show and they would shine and get some producer or tv network's attention. It failed. It just made her seem all that more desperate to get back on tv no matter what it takes.

JoyinVirginia said...

Time for the acronym explanation!

TFW = The Former Wife = TFMJG = The Former Mrs Jon Gosselin = Ms Kreider = Kate Gosselin
Jon had a published interview with a dad blogger, and only referred to ” my former wife” never calling her by name. A lot of us thought that was a great idea!
WOS = Waste of Space = what TFMJG called the Grand Canyon. Posters here when using WOS mean TFMJG.
Any other acronyms new readers of this blog need to know?

Oh my. That first picture. TFW wearing purple, the color of royalty, with her roots showing? No time or no money for a Ted Gibson touch-up sweetie? And the totally calculating look on her face. Brrrr, evil.
What is with the head tilt pose of M? Poor C, she was hoping the floor would swallow her, so uncomfortable.

Off to watch the video. I shouldn't have ate breakfast.

Localyocul said...

@alittlebitofpaz: @Kateplusmy8 @TODAYshow the whole interview was awkward! I loved the show but saw a different Kate, not sure what to think

Marie said...

Unfortunately for the kids, there will be people like Deanna who will prop Kate up and tell her that the kids were just being shy and it all went well and Kate being the narcisisst that she is will believe it. She has no self awareness and she has no awareness of the awful pain the kids were in.

Marie

JD said...

I have the feeling last night the girls were grilled non stop by Kate over what they could say and the things they were not allowed to say. That probably had something to do with their awkwardness. They were afraid to talk because they might say the wrong thing.

I also think there was hell to pay for those girls after the interview once they were alone with Kate. They were probably blamed for ruining their future and worst of all embarrassing their mother.

Anyone want to bet the next interview will be entirely different after Kate has a chance to "talk" to them about their behavior?

getofftwitter said...

What the heck is Kate talking about: the girls were scared, stage fright? They have been on TV, in front of cameras, since they were 3-4, as recent as People mag, and they are stage fright? I wonder if they talked to their dad sometime before they went on the show, and he possibly told them to tell the truth. Cause, those girls looked to Kate for guidence, before they said anything, and Kate response was your own words. Wow, Kates TL is bomb-barted, mostly negative. Kate made an ass & fool out of herself and the girls. They will be the laughing stock at school. Course Kate will say they are just jellus. I'm sure the school is popping the headache pills, already. Kate just does not think. So selfish.

@ljohnson2006: No one has the right to bash the @Kateplusmy8 @TODAYshow interview. Kids get nervous and freeze up. It's a NORMAL thing. #MoveOn!

@cali4evrgirl: @Kateplusmy8 @TODAYshow it's what wasn't said that defines them a constant look for approval in fear of saying the wrong thing. #wasabigfan

Realitytvkids.com (Administrator) said...

Oh wow, random people (not the regular sheeple or non fans) are tweeting Kate DIRECTLY taking her to task and Kate is frantically defending herself. Now she claims the kids had stage fright (after five years of being on T.V. they have stage fright??) and is throwing out the old tired, do you have kids??? People are saying really good rational stuff to her like this: @BlckdByJilZarin 29m
@Kateplusmy8 @Chriistiina_A @TODAYshow Kate, I agree it was stage fright but u snapping your fingers at them didn't help. Show some patience (person with 64,000 tweets and a quick scroll shows that she doesn't normally tweet about the Gosselins)

WTF? What does having kids have to do with anything? I hope a shitload of people reply YES I do have kids as a matter of fact! Haha.
