If you're like me, and you're not Kate Gosselin's biggest fan, then today is basically like Christmas for you. Why? Because Kate brought her 13-year-old twins Cara and Mady on the Today Show yesterday to do some damage control, and it pretty much completely backfired.

Kate was hoping that the girls would dispel rumors that their life at home is totally screwed up, but even when they were asked questions directly, the girls refused to speak.


Kate seemed pretty humiliated (and, quite frankly, bitchy). She didn't help out her image at all when she used such great parenting advice as, "Mady, your words.  It's your chance . . . spit it out."

Kate's attempts to get the kids to talk while clearly holding back a tidal wave of pure anger and humiliation were priceless.  When Mady finally did speak, she cleared things up a little (sort of).

When asked if people have the wrong impression of their family, she said, "I wouldn't say 'wrong', I would just say not, like, the full story."


She added, "A lot of people think that filming our show has damaged us, but it’s only really helped."
