A clip from a 2014 interview with Kate Gosselin and her twin daughters, Mady and Cara, has resurfaced on TikTok and viewers say the clip is riddled with red flags.
The interview, which originally aired on the Today show, in which Savannah Guthrie sits down at the table with the former stars of the TLC hit show Jon & Kate plus eight.
In the thrilling footage, Savannah asks twins Mady and Cara (13 years old at the time) to give the world an update, following their appearance on the cover of People magazine.
“Mady, what would you like to say about how you and your sister and your family are?” asks Savannah.
Mady takes a moment to think and search for the words – something that seems to annoy her mother.
“Mady, your words,” says Kate, snapping her fingers. “This is your chance. Spit it out.”
Kate and Mady silently exchange a focused look, prompting Savannah to pass the question to Cara, who is the same mother as her twin brother.
“This is their chance to talk,” Kate says awkwardly to Savannah. “This is as wordless as I’ve heard them all morning.”
From there, the tension and awkwardness only keep building – until finally Kate takes the proverbial reins from her twin girls and directs the interview herself.
The clip has since gained more than 4.6 million views, 321,000 likes and 12,000 comments on TikTok.
Who are the Gosselins?
The Gosselin family was filmed for TLC’s show Jon & Kate plus eight from 2007 to 2017. The show focused on married couple Jon and Kate as they raised their twin girls, Mady and Cara, and their sextuplets, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel.
After a messy public divorce in 2009, the show dropped husband Jon from the title and became Kate plus eightwhich ran for two seasons.
Kate then appeared inside Dancing with the stars and Celebrity wife swaps and later got her own show called Kate plus datewhich ran for one season.
Recently, the Gosselin family made headlines again when 18-year-old Collin gave a rare interview about his mother’s decision to institutionalize him as a child and his choice to live with his father, Jon.
“Those kids just said everything without saying anything…”
More than 12,000 TikTokers shared their feelings about the Today interview in the comments.
“They really embarrassed Kate here and I bet they paid dearly for it later at home,” one user wrote.
“It is so sad that they keep looking at their mother before answering. Kate is the modern age [Mommie] Dear,” another user commented.
“Something is happening in their house…silence is creepy,” one user wrote.
“Those kids just said everything without saying anything,” another user wrote.
“Wow! The girls are so scared to speak for themselves. That video speaks volumes!” replied another user.
“Red flags galore,” said one user.
