It’s hard to remember a day when the now-infamous Duggars weren’t plagued with scandal. TLC’s First Family can’t catch a break this year after it was revealed that Josh Duggar, 27, inappropriately touched young girls, two of them being his little sisters Jessa Duggar, 22, and Jill Duggar, 24 — back when he was a teenager. Now the pressure seems to be crushing in on Josh, as his relatives fear he could end up hurting himself in the wake of all the backlash — allegedly. Yikes!
Jill Duggar Dillard , 24, and Jessa Duggar Seewald, 22, have finally opened up about the steps their parents took to make sure they would no longer be victimized by their older brother, Josh Duggar, 27. The sisters told Megyn Kelly in an exclusive interview, which aired on Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File June 5, that even though they have no memory of the molestation, their parents took strong measures to make sure Josh wouldn’t continue to have access to his sleeping sisters.
Josh Duggar’s parents, Jim Bob Duggar, 49 and Michelle Duggar, 48, spoke with Megyn Kelly, 44 on the June 3 episode of The Kelly File in the first interview since Josh’s molestation scandal broke. The Duggars shared their side of the story, but they also said some half-truths and outright lies! A new report from InTouch magazine collected all the instances when the Duggars lied to Megyn and we’ve got the biggest fibs the 19 Kids & Counting stars told.
When Josh Duggar, now 28, confessed to allegedly molesting four of his own sisters and a fifth girl, his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, felt that ignoring the problem would make it go away. Unfortunately it never did, and instead it came back with a vengeance in 2015 when his horrific police report was released online. Family therapist Steve Ornstein explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com that “denial” is common because “real feelings” are too painful for victims.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar believe that the release of the molestation report, proving that their son Josh Duggar, 27, confessed to improperly touching five girls as a teen, was a deliberate attack on their 19 Kids & Counting family. During a sit-down interview with FOX News’ Megyn Kelly on June 3, the Duggars accused Springdale Police Chief Kathy O’Kelley of wanting to “hurt” them for a “bribe.”
It’s been nearly two weeks since fans of 19 Kids & Counting learned that Josh Duggar, 27, molested five underage girls while he was a teenager. In their first interview since the scandal broke, Michelle Duggar, 48, and husband, Jim Bob Duggar, 49, sat down with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, 44, on the June 3 episode of The Kelly File. The heads of the Duggar household spoke about their son and how his “terrible” actions “violated God’s principles” — and how they learned to forgive him.
For the first time since Josh Duggar‘s scandal case broke, the 19 Kids & Counting star’s parents are sitting down on June 3 at 9pm for an interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox’s The Kelly File. In the first sneak peek, Michelle Duggar is moved to tears, revealing how heartbroken she and her husband were when their son came to them 12 years ago with a disturbing confession.
