Oddly enough there are no new legal documents or scandals involving TLC’s “19 Kids & Counting” Duggar family coming out of In Touch magazine. Which really surprises me considering the several interviews I saw with the editor handling the Duggar content said things that indicated that what they’d released already was just the tip of the iceberg.
This morning In Touch has stories of pregnant reality television stars who have dwarfism, David Hasselhoff’s senior citizen sexual prowess and a butt implant story but not a word about the Duggars. Most curious, guess that the Duggar’s stories didn’t move as many issues last week as before so In Touch has decided not to release anything else for now.
Several online tabloids are reporting on a story from 2002 when one of the business renters of the Duggar’s property had to take out a restraining order on Jim Bob Duggar. More on that at Radar Online. There’s a couple of stories of Josh Duggar returning to social media to wish his son a happy birthday and a smattering of Duggar sightings and courtship speculations in wake of the scandal.
Quite frankly I’m happy there is no new Duggar news this week as I’ve gone into extreme Duggar burnout mode. Much of what happened and was reported was extremely triggering to so many of us in recovery. It was wearing on me personally. I’m in scandal fatigue. It was starting to feel like I was living in a particularly bad “Law & Order: SVU” episode. On that note I would not be a bit surprised to see a fictionalized account of this entire molestation.
But.. if anything substantial is announced, something more than courtships and antique restraining orders we’ll be posting it.
What about you? Are you sick of hearing about the Duggar family and their attempts to bury Josh’s crimes while trying to retain their television show. Let me know how much coverage is too much or not enough in the comments.
