Image by propinqua

by PropinquaThe Duggar fantasy mega-house was largely funded by Discovery Networks and built by donated labor that Discovery rounded up. Sponsors even helped to stock the food pantry.

News: Naugler Family, Dillard Mission Trip and Jessa Duggar Seewald Wore Pants

Image from Instagram

Turns out that the the Naugler parents have regained custody of their ten children from the state of Kentucky. No word on how this happened. I would imagine that the family was either found to be properly providing for their children or that the parents, Joe and Nicole, improved the living situation on their land enough to meet state requirements. Suspecting it's probably the later considering a fundraiser for the family brought in over 70K for improvements on their very crude living arrangements. Plus it sounds like from the news stories that Kentucky CPS is still going to be part of this family's life for quite some time. Unless they do what they've done in the past, pick up stakes and … [Read more...]

Behind Compound Walls: Dueling Duggar Stories – Is Josh Duggar ‘Suicidal’?

Image by NLQ

Everything single morning I can count on a couple of things once I get out of bed. 1) The cats will demand food, 2) I will need copious amounts of coffee and 3) there will be a pile of articles involving the Duggar family landing in my email box. Personally I prefer the cats and coffee. One reason why is became many times the stories of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar stories are either generated by their PR firm or they all just contradict the hell out each other. … [Read more...]
