Kate Gosselin’s 17-Year-Old Twins Open Up About Their Estranged Relationship With Dad Jon Gosselin: “He Doesn’t Even Know Us”


In case you missed the big news, “Jon and Kate Plus 8’s” Kate Gosselin is headed back to TLC for a new series about her love life called “Kate Plus Date.” The series will follow Kate as she ventures into the world of dating as she tries to find love– and her kids are completely on board.

“Now that they’re older and talking about dating and how they’re all gonna get married someday … it became apparent: they want someone for me. They want me to have somebody in my life,” Kate told People of her kids’ thoughts on the new show.

Kate and her ex Jon Gosselin divorced in 2009, and according to People17-year-old twins Mady and Cara aren’t speaking to their father.

“He makes it seem like we’re being kept from him, which is insane,” Mady said of her father, Jon. “He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen.”

She went on to say that Jon doesn’t really even know the twins anymore. “He doesn’t even know us. How can he dare to talk about us?”

Cara and Mady will be heading off to college when “Kate Plus Date” begins, but we should get a few glimpses and updates on them throughout the series.
