Mady and Cara Gosselin have grown into opinionated teenagers since their days on ‘Jon & Kate Plus 8,’ and while speaking out about their reality TV upbringing in a new interview with ‘People,’ the girls dissed their dad Jon’s series of girlfriends after their parents’ divorce!
Jon and Kate Gosselin‘s first-born twin daughters, Mady and Cara, now 13, reflected back on their parents’ breakup in a brand new interview — and the outspoken twins said they now realize their dad’s constant string of new girlfriends after the split was out of control! They dissed his relationships, joking about how they were actually the least “normal” part of their childhood.
Gosselin Twins Diss Jon Gosselin: Mady & Cara Reveal Dad’s String Of Girlfriends
Cara and Mady feel that they live a normal life and barely remember the detailed drama of their parents’ 2009 divorce — but they called out some standout moments from their dad’s behavior after the split!
“The stuff I remember now is stuff that I didn’t really see anything wrong with at the time,” Mady told People. “Now that I look back, I can see, ‘Oh, that wasn’t a really good thing.” What was she specifically referring to? “Like girlfriends, lots of girlfriends,” Mady explained of Jon’s many love interests after splitting from Kate.
“Like, maybe that wasn’t so normal, to have someone new, like, every week,” Mady concluded. Cara sarcastically added that the frequency of Jon’s new girlfriend appearances were more like “Every day, Every minute. Every second.”
Kate explained that her daughters are thriving, despite not seeing their dad often. “Since Jon has been gone, they’ve just stepped up and pitched in,” she told the magazine. “They’ll have as normal a life as possible, given all that they’ve been through. I tell them, ‘You’re a kid, and your job is to be a kid.'”
Gosselin Twins Mady & Cara: ‘People Expect Us To Be Damaged’
The Gosselin twins have turned out to be well-spoken young ladies aside from their dad-dissing. The girls explain that they feel they lived a normal childhood, and are proud of how they have adjusted into their teens.
“I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job handling everything,” Cara told People. “People who think they know who we are, they don’t really understand.”
“People expect us to be damaged,” Cara explained, receiving an agreement from Mady. “They think we’re supposed to be so messed up, like, ‘Oooooh, the poor Gosselin kids, they’re going to be scarred for life, waaaaah.’ Here’s the big news: we’re not messed up.”
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you think the Gosselin girls were unfairly dissing their dad — or just saying what they observed?
