I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW that Kate appeared on this morning’s Today show to defend her upcoming reality series, Twist of Kate, on the same day that the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry decided not to file charges against the producers of TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8. “I don’t see another option,” said the author of I Just Want You To Know. “I have eight kids to provide for, and this is a great opportunity.” One of the tensest interviews you’ll ever see (or not!) is embedded after the jump. Is anyone else mesmerized by the totally ’80s “puzzling pixels” design of the Today show set?

If I had it my way, Meredith would tenderly request Kate’s hand for a mood-lightening mambo at the end of their interview. But I do not get to tweak the past. Only the present. This is the future of television.
