Thanks for the heads up on this to one of our dear readers in our comments.

Here comes that rumored link between Josh Duggar and strippers, excuse me, adult entertainers who work in gentlemen’s clubs.

According to Radar Online and International Business Times the same email address that Josh Duggar used for his Ashley Madison account and his OkCupid account,, was also used for a Facebook account in the name Joe Smithson. Smithson’s Facebook friends? Women who work in strip clubs and women who model lingerie.

Searched today and was unable to find this account but it’s likely that Josh has taken it down as of last night, or made it private between late last night when the article came out with the Facebook news. Has anyone seen the Facebook profile?

Again, it’s most curious that another Josh fake profile has him claiming to have graduated from real legitimate college when we all know that’s a big fib. Most on this story as it develops. Josh had this Facebook page four years prior to his marriage to Anna.

I do not doubt there is more scandal out there that will emerge in the coming days.

ETA: This is Josh’s Joe Smithson Facebook page

    Thanks so much!

    Whose photos are he stealing for his avatars? I would be really angry if he did that to me.

    The picture is of Jonathan Blankfein – the son of Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.

    No, I didn’t know that off the top of my head. 🙂

    If you have a PC (or a Mac, but I don’t know the key strokes), you can use Google Images to track these things down. To do so, I went to the FB page linked by Curious Jack.

    I right-clicked on the image and selected “Copy Image URL”.

    I opened Google in a separate window and clicked on the camera icon which allows you to search by image. I used CTRL+V to paste the image.

    Up popped a bunch of images including:

    The actual picture Josh Duggar used is in the slideshow at the bottom image 7/9

    That’s a whole level of pathetic.

    Stealing a picture of a Harvard senior from banking royalty – that’s a sad bit of wish-fulfillment there.

    This – to me – also reinforces my long-running theme that JB and M couldn’t be bothered to deal with their kids in any real way. Remember the “Buddy System” on the computer with password protection that only the girls knew to protect the boys from trouble? How exactly did Josh manage to create a FB account that no one else knew about if their system was so phenomenal?

    At this point, I hope Josh snaps and becomes the first Duggar to share all with the dirty laundry that’s behind the shinning image to the media. He’s clearly been struggling since he was 14 and his parents didn’t give a shit enough to effectively remove the internet from him. (Not that that’s effective – but it’s what the Duggars freaking promote as “Godly”.)

    I would never have thought Josh might be the first real family defector, but it’s a strong possibility. He’s clearly just been parroting the parental party line without believing it if the string of his actions going back to his teenage years is anything to go by. In all his profiles he lists college degrees, which makes me really feel sad for him. You don’t make that stuff up just because you’re trying to get over on women, you do it because it is something you wanted badly. I hope if he defects that he gets a chance to go to school and get that degree.

    Maybe I’m reading too much into his profiles, but it makes me profoundly sad.

    The whole thing is fucking sad (that’s it, I’ve snapped.) Such a waste of lives and potential and happiness. I am going to pray that the children of this family can wake up and reject what they’ve been taught, heal and move on with their lives and do what they really want to do. It is horrible and my heart bleeds for the victims in this family. I don’t excuse Josh for his actions, but I think he had no chance of growing up normally in this family, and I can see where it lead him.

  • Finding Home

    I know that’s what they’re called but I despise the term “gentleman’s club.” Does anyone else think it’s an oxymoron?

  • Aimee Shulman

    Actually putting in any work to raise their kids is the LAST thing Michelle and Jim bob ever wanted. That’s why they’ve spent all this time forcing the teenage girls to raise the younger children for them. All Jim bob cares about is controlling people and making them do what he wants, and all Michelle cares about is smiling pretty for the camera and making (but not raising) baby after baby to show off how amazingly fecund she is. They have less than zero interest in actually being parents. All they want is the fame and adulation they get for producing all those babies. As long as those babies grow up to stay obedient and act like happy little cult members when people are looking, these two don’t CARE if they turn out to be genuinely happy, normal, or well-adjusted people at all.

    Hangout for Insecure Males would not be the best way to position your strip club.
