Remember earlier in the week when it came out that the Duggar family had started asking people for money on their YouTube channel? Yeah, well, they have taken down the request for money and the button you had to click to donate. Like many other actions of the family since it came out that eldest son Josh Duggar molested five girls this action backfired on them and had people speculating that they were broke.
This doesn’t mean we will not see more shameless grabs for fame and moolah out of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” Duggar family. I fully expect they are going to come up with another way to get paid by their fans. Right now it’s said that all their paid speaking gigs and book contract have dried up. That’s on top of the cancellation of their television show and the TLC gravy train.
In other weird Duggar news one of the TLC crew of “19 Kids and Counting” is a convicted felon for possessing child pornography. Not only did he work on the Duggar show, he was also part of TLC’s ‘Kate Plus Eight’ another show featuring large numbers of children. From Wet Paint:
According to documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, 60-year-old William Blankinship was arrested on October 21, 2011 and charged with 10 felony counts of second-degree exploitation of a child. We’re not going to show you the images and videos William had in his possession when he was caught, but trust us, it’ll make your skin crawl. All we’ll say is it features children between the ages of one and 11 in various sexual circumstances.
