Kate Gosselin's Twins Go Awkwardly Silent On Her During 'Today' Interview

Kate Gosselin made an appearance on 'Today' show to address reports that fame from their old reality show 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' had negatively affected her children.

Gosselin tried her best to convince viewers that the girls were as happy as can be. But the interview backfired after her now 13-year-old twins Mady and Cara refused to talk.

"We have not seen you or gotten to talk to you two in a long, long time and you're out because you want to let the world know you're doing okay. Mady, what would you want to say about how you and your sister and your family are doing?," host Savannah Guthrie began.

When Mady replied with little more than an "Um...", Gosselin scolded "Mady, your words. It's your chance. Spit it out."

"This is their chance to talk. This is the most wordless I've heard them all morning. I don't want to speak for them but, Mady, go ahead. Sort of the things that you said in the magazine, that years later they're good, they're fine. Go for it, Mad. it's your chance."

"No. You just said it," Mady replied looking at Gosselin.

"No, it's hard. It's a hard question," Guthrie tried to ease the awkwardness. "What about you, Cara?"

But after Cara only offered a blank stare, Guthrie wondered whether he mother of eight, whether bringing the girls back on television was continuing "the injury to them."

"I mean there is no injury to begin with," replied the mom. "Any TV things that we do, I mean at this age of 13, I can't get them to do anything they don't want to do, as with any parent so it's not like I force us to do it. It's a family decision."

And that last answer probably explains why the girls didn't want to talk -- they didn't want to be there.
