Chalk it up to “stage fright!” That’s what Kate Gosselin is using to defend her 13-year-old daughters’ appearance on TODAY Thursday morning. During a live interview, twins Cara and Mady completely froze up while discussing life after years on reality TV.
During the Q&A session, the former TLC star tried to prompt her daughters to “use your words,” and seemed incredibly frustrated by their muteness. Afterward though, she took to Twitter to support her two oldest kids.
“Thanks to @
TODAYshow for having Cara, Mady and me on the show today!” she wrote. “1st live interview can render even the gabbiest girls speechless : )” In response to some fan tweets, she added that the girls were “caught off guard by live tv” and “had a case of ‘stage fright.'”
Although host Savannah Guthrie didn’t get much out of the girls, she did get Mady to admit that they would love to do another reality series. The girls, along with their six siblings, appeared on Jon & Kate Plus 8 and then Kate Plus Eight from 2007-2011.
