This week, Jill Duggar described dad Jim Bob’s efforts to sabotage her marriage.
His purpose, she defined, was to maintain her filming 19 Children and Counting after which on Counting On.
In spite of everything, that’s how Jim Bob — and solely Jim Bob — made some huge cash, she and Derick have defined.
Between Jill’s interview and the upcoming launch of her memoir, Jill’s notorious dad and mom have one thing to say.
Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar issued a statement to People in response to Jill Duggar’s interview and upcoming memoir.
“We love all of our kids very a lot,” they claimed.
“As with all household,” the Duggar dad and mom famous, “few issues are extra painful than conflicts or issues amongst these you like…”
“We don’t consider the easiest way to resolve conflicts, facilitate forgiveness and reconciliation,” Jim Bob and Michelle listed.
They continued: “Or to speak by way of difficulties is thru the media or in a public discussion board.”
The notorious couple concluded: “So we won’t remark.”
That lack of a “remark” sounds a bit like commentary to us.
If Jim Bob and Michelle had merely stated we love our daughter in our personal twisted, misguided, in the end dangerous means, however we’ve got no additional remark, that will be one factor.
However no. They determined to record the varied causes for which they felt that public commentary was inappropriate. People, that was public commentary in and of itself.
Merely put, they introduced to the world that Jill is airing her grievances within the mistaken “discussion board.”
The place precisely, we marvel, ought to a public determine expose the egregious wrongdoings of her poisonous dad and mom?
That’s not how this works.
We’ve little doubt that Jim Bob and Michelle would favor for Jill to talk to them in non-public.
However that defeats the entire function of exposing their grift and their malice.
And it will give them the chance to as soon as once more strain her into silence. When horrible dad and mom like these two spend most of your life sporting somebody down into an obedient incubator, they count on you to obey — at any age.
In actual fact, that’s a part of what Jill addresses in her e-book — and what she touched upon throughout her interview this week.
Being raised with the poisonous notion that she should obey and “honor” her father at any age triggered large issues in her married life.
The cult anticipated her to hunt Jim Bob’s blessing for any life selection. And he definitely wasn’t giving her the go-ahead to give up filming the present that was lining his pockets.
That stated, we shouldn’t count on Jill to show an excessive amount of on this e-book. It appears like the principle focus will likely be upon the pressures and deception surrounding actuality TV.
Jim Bob and Michelle are terrible in so many ways in which it might fill a number of books.
Nevertheless folks might really feel about Jill and her siblings, that they had an unenviable childhood. They — like all folks — deserved higher than what the Duggar family did to them.
