Mother of the year?

Kate saved the day for her twins Cara and Mady when the three appeared this morning on NBC's Today. The single mother of eight and her elder daughters sat down with co-anchor Savannah Guthrie to continue their crusade to change the public's perception of their family.

Mady was first asked to give an update on how her siblings are doing since TLC's Kate Plus 8 was canceled in 2011. The 13-year-old caved under pressure and let silence fill the air.
