You more than likely knew already that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are speaking with Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly in an interview that is going to air on Wednesday night. What we have learned now is that two of their daughters will also be joining them. Specifically, Jessa Duggar (Seewald) and Jill Duggar (Dillard) will be giving an interview with Kelly that airs on Friday, where the two will admit and discuss being victims to Josh’s actions when he was a teenager. Documents recently showed that the “19 Kids and Counting” star had molested several minors during that time, and a good many of them were family members.
While Jessa has not issues much of a statement as of yet when it comes to the scandal, she did did Kelly (per an Us Weekly report) that some of the statements regarding her brother are not a representation of who he is:
“I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying … I’m like, ‘That is so overboard and a lie really.’ I mean people get mad at me for saying that, but I can say this because I was one of the victims.”
The issue that we see with this entire interview event is rather simple: Whose mind is really going to change through this? We imagine that those who stood up for the Duggars are going to continue to do so, but at the same time those who were outraged will probably not watch the interview in the first place.
Today, more information was released when it comes to the Duggars, and you can read up about that right now over at the link here. Also, you can sign up to get some other TV updates on all we cover, sent to you via our CarterMatt Newsletter. (Photo: TLC.)
