Interview Etiquette 101: Always Be Prepared

By OCGPR Staff | January 17, 2014 | add comment

  1. KentW says:

    That was actually pretty hard to watch. I don’t think I have ever seen such an awkward interview moment. Especially given the fact that they spent so many years with cameras around them. Perhaps they are comfortable having cameras “capture” their daily activities as they go here and there because nothing specific is directed toward them.,,,whatever happens happens. But, here they were looked at by an imposing “news person” who directed questions straight at them with an expectation of a response. Obviously, they couldn’t handle it. It looked to me that their reluctance to speak also caught Kate totally off guard.

  2. Kimberly Takacs Jarvinen says:

    That was terrible! Kate looked horrified and agitated! I don’t deny that she is a good mother, but, it really serves her right! Don’t put your kids out there to make a couple of bucks. I remember how she used to treat Jon way back in those first episodes. I bet her kids got a little piece of her mind after that interview! Glad that’s over….it was just ugly to watch…..
