Savannah Guthrie talks 'crazy' Kate Gosselin interview

'WWHL': Savannah Guthrie Talks

Savannah Guthrie and her 'Today' show co-host Matt Lauer were in the 'Watch What Happens Live' clubhouse, and Andy Cohen had to ask Savannah about that incredibly awkward interview with Kate Gosselin and her 13-year-old twins.

Savannah said she was ' really surprised when they didn't say too much, but I kind of was sympathetic to them. I felt bad for them. I honestly was just thinking, this is crazy. Is this as crazy as it feels inside. Does it look crazy? Then I checked my Twitter feed and I knew, it was crazy. I saw Matt right after, he was like, 'Woah. It was insane.'

Matt said he had a similar reaction to that infamous Tom Cruise interview he did back in 2005, where the actor went off about psychiatric drugs and repeatedly called Matt 'glib.'

And FYI -- the Gosselin girls proved they could talk on TV just a few days later when they stopped by ABC's 'The View.'

Maybe the 'Today' show's 7 AM start time was just a little too early.

What did you think about the interview? Tell us in the comments below.

Dear Media..........Please refrain from showing us or writing us about the Gosslin's and the dreaded
Kardashian's both are trite and socially embarrassing. Offer the public solid important stories
we can relate to in our daily lives not over moot stories of sub standard reporting on the like
of disfunctional people. We need positive news not stories from the gutters.

I Totally AGREE Let them deal with their own personal problems without bombarding us with their Cr. P
Individually, we have our own personal problems that we DON'T ask to be publicized and shared with the world, why should they be allowed to DUMP OFF ON US/or WHY should the media DUMP THEIR JUNK ON US?

Mostly I feel very sorry for those 8 kids. They didn't ask to be born to 2 messed up parents. Kate Gosselin is a very misguided person who is failing miserably at role of mothering and mentoring her children. It is a shame those kids have to endure the choices she makes for them. She is no role model either. thinking only of herself and what she wants. I am not sure how much better Jon would be either, as he has not demonstrated good parenting either. Bottom line: the children continue to suffer...SO sad!

It came accross to me that the girls had been pre programmed and didn't quite know what they could say and not be in trouble with the mom.

The Robertsons maybe. At least they don't make the young kids do it, a good decision.

They looked and acted like they were scared to death to make a wrong move and say the wrong thing for fear of the repercussions from their mother. The appearance on "The View" was almost as bad even though they did talk. But, before either one would say something, they looked at Kate with a "hope this will be okay" look for approval. I guarantee that they were read the riot act between the two appearances. Kate Goslin just looks mean in her eyes.

Kate needs to leave the limelight, give the kids a chance to grow up in a normal way. Go back to being a nurse instead of attempting to be an attention grabbing reality queen.

Would you want her as your nurse, Andrea? Nurse Ratchett.

they seemed like they wanted to talk but their mom warned them not to say negative things so they got tongue tied
