Kate Gosselin blames her daughter’s bad behavior on stage fright. (UPDATE: Kate went NUTS backstage!)
Yesterday afternoon an interview took place on the Today Show that totally made my week. Kate Gosselin’s 13-year-old twin daughters embarrassed their mom for being put on the spot. On live TV. It was precious. (Watch the video here)
Shortly after storming off the stage, she immediately beat the s**t out of them, and then tweeted “Thanks to @TODAYshow for having Cara, Mady and me on the show today! 1st live interview can render even the gabbiest girls speechless.” She added: “I’m proud of them, taking this opp! They were so excited but caught off guard by live tv!” Just kidding about the beating them part…. as far as I know she didn’t beat them.
It was obvious damage-control on Kate’s part, but Kate denied it. “No damage done. They wanted to do interview with me, I said ‘go for it’ #morelifeopportunites #proudmomnomatterwhat.”
After one Tweeter wrote, “You could tell they were scared of saying the wrong thing, that’s why they kept looking at you!” Kate replied, “There were no right or wrong answers. They just had a case of ‘stage fright’ #notactors.”
You KNOW Kate let those poor girls have it after the camera’s stopped rolling. I’d put money on it.
NYDN has an insider who was at the Today Show after the taping. This is what they said:
Backstage after the disastrous non-chat, Kate let the girls have it, says our source.
“She went type-A crazy,” says our insider. “She was upset that they had a chance to speak for themselves and defend her and they blew it. She told them, ‘You embarrassed mommy,’ and some people heard. She was not happy.”
The girls’ father, Jon, chimed in, telling “Inside Edition” Thursday that he blames his ex for what happened. “Definitely. Someone has to sign the paperwork for them to go on television. It wasn’t me. They’re minors … You put our kids into a situation that they were not prepared for at all. They weren’t allowed to be themselves.”
I think it’s creepy she referred to herself in the third person. “You embarrassed mommy!” Creepy!
