By now you may have seen The Gosselin twins, Cara and Mady’s awkward and silent interview on the Today Show with their mother Kate…yeah it was pretty bad! Their father, Jon was not too happy with what happened with the girls and told TMZ he feels ‘horrible’ for the girls. “I felt upset. I was laying there with Liz [Jannetta, Jon’s girlfriend] and we were like, ‘Say something girls. Come on! Just say something. Anything.’ And they didn’t say anything and we were like, ‘Ugh, this is horrible.’ Then I felt really bad. I mean, I didn’t care too much for Kate or whatever, but I felt really bad for Mady and Cara because I love them and they’re just put in this situation. It was like deer in the headlights.”
The twins decided to barely talk during their Today Shoe interview and exchanged awkward looks among each other no uttering a word as Savannah Guthrie asked them about growing up in front of the cameras.
Jon added,”It just kind of proves my point of Kate bringing the kids out instead of her just sort of doing it herself. It all blew up in everyone’s face and I feel horrible for my children because now they’re going to have to deal with the public. By body language they were probably like, ‘What’s the moral thing to do and what does my mom want me to do?’ They were torn and they just shutdown. It was just a classic case of being silent. You get to a point where you are like, ‘I don’t know who to please. Do I please myself or do I please my parents — or my mother?'”
Did he believe the twins were being “manipulated” by Kate? “In my heart that’s what I believe, that’s how I feel. Can I prove it? I can’t prove it, but you can’t take my feelings away from me. I feel that way.I just texted Mady and Cara today and said, ‘You guys looked great and I love you and have a good day in New York.’ I didn’t really talk about it. I’m just here to offer them support and be their father.”
