Kate Gosselin urged her tongue-tied daughters to “spit it out” during their cringe-worthy appearance on the “Today” show, but what’s in today’s news is what happened directly after. How about the alleged aftermath?



The New York Daily News is reporting that the former reality show star gave her 13-year-old twin girls, Mady and Cara, major grief for going mute during their interview with Today show host, Savannah Guthrie.

“She went type-A crazy,” alleges a source. “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.”

Whatever happened, the fame-loving matriarch was quick to defend the oldest members of her eight-kid-strong brood.

“1st live interview can render even the gabbiest girls speechless :),” she tweeted.

As the interview kicked off, Guthrie directed her first question to Mady, asking how she and her sister were doing in the aftermath “Jon & Kate Plus 8.”

“Um …,” responded the teen, prompting a wide-eyed Kate to clap her hands and chide, “Mady, your words. It’s your chance. Spit it out.”

But Gosselin insisted on Twitter that she couldn’t have been happier with their performance: “I’m SO proud of my girls…we had a great trip to NYC together. Did a couple of interviews, shopped, dined, bonded etc. #biggirlfun #homenow.”

Kate’s ex-husband-turned-nemesis Jon Gosselin said it was “horrible” to watch his twins’ “deer in the headlights” moment.
