Norma Discussed Her Teething Issues during Her Interview
Norma and Jess, known for their internet fame, had a difficult start to their morning appearance. When the 80-year-old “grandflueencer,” who did not wear her hearing aid during an interview segment, experienced repeated landline rings during it she became distressed. One of the production team eventually disconnected it but Norma still was not able to hear the questions asked at the start.
Twitter Split Among Performance Benchmarks
Norma and Jess were in good spirits during their interview, speaking openly about their surprising rise to online stardom. “I’ve gotten some incredible feedback and messages, and it’s been heartwarming talking to people all over the world.
I never expected this at all,” Norma said. However, their performance on Twitter divided audiences, with some finding the first half hour “painful” while others felt embarrassed for those participating; others found their segment “adorable”, offering support for their hilarious videos made by these women.
