Kate Gosselin's twin daughters on 'The View' finally speak out loud

According to US Weekly, Kate Gosselin had a little more success when she tried doing TV again with her two oldest daughters, Mady and Cara. On January 20, 2014 they appeared on “The View.” While Mady and Cara seemed to function better among the five interviewers, they still had some problems and dissed their mom, Kate.

Instead of the awkward silence that Mady and Cara gave to viewers of the “Today” show, this time they actually answered questions. Mother Kate didn’t have to do all the talking. The two girls held their own. When Whoopi Goldberg asked the girls what they liked to do, if they did a lot of social networking, or had a favorite group, Mady wasn't shy in her answer when she said that she does not like Justin Bieber. Her favorite group is One Direction, especially Niall Horan. However, Cara doesn’t like One Direction; she prefers to listen to Demi Lovato.

Barbara Walters asked the girls to tell what it’s like to have six younger brothers and sisters. There was a slight pause. Kate turned to Mady and said, “You’ve waited your whole life for this question.”

Mady’s response, “You ruined my dramatic silence!” This caused the audience to clap and cheer. Without needing time to think, she answered, “They’re annoying.” Cara agreed verbally with her sister. Mady went on to say, “Not just as a group, but every single one of them.”

When asked what they do to help out around the house, Cara said that she unloads the dishwasher and Mady loads the dishwasher with dirty dishes. They also wipe down the counter-tops. The only time they didn't answer was when Barbara Walters asked if they still talked to their dad, Jon Gosselin. Kate tried to get them to answer, but they just stayed silent.

After the "Today" show, it is nice to see that the two girls can talk, tease, and answer some questions. Perhaps they felt more relaxed on "The View" because there were five other women there. The setting may have been more comfortable for twin girls.

Dr. Lillian Glass, author of the Body Language Blog, had this to say about the "Today" show fiasco. "This interview showed us how all is not well in that household, no matter what these girls may have allegedly told People Magazine.When it was just them on the spot and no publicist or mom speaking on their behalf, they refused to lie. I give them a lot of credit for that."
