Kate admitted that their 12-year-old son Collin is in treatment because he has "special needs," and publicly explained his situation.

Kate explained that Collin was "enrolled in a program that is helping him learn the skills he needs to be the best him he can be.

The Gosselin twins lashed out at their father in the interview, with Cara saying, "I wouldn't even know what to say about him." Mady echoed her sentiment. "He makes it seem like we're being kept from him, which is insane," she said. "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. He doesn't even know us. How can he dare to talk about us?"
