From Radar:

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are so famous that when they went out with Kirk Cameron a fan of theirs didn’t know who he was and asked him to take their picture with the Duggars!

In this sneak peek of the upcoming episode of 19 Kids and Counting, the Duggars were in Washington DC with the Growing Pains star and his son, Jack, and even though they’re all republicans they actually went to one of President Barack Obama’s favorite restaurants, Ben’s Chili Bowl.

“I heard that Ben’s Chili Bowl is one of President Obama’s favorite places to go, it’s one of our favorite places to go, we have that in common,” Jim Bob said about their connection with the President.

Kirk said it had been four years since he’d seen the deeply religious family. “The last time I saw the Duggars was at the San Antonio International Christian Film Festival.”

Kirk has weighed in frequently on conservative political issues, recently supporting Rep. Todd Akin after his  controversial “legitimate rape” statement but he apparently isn’t as famous anymore as the Duggars are.

“We walked in and people recognized us and one lady asked if she could get a picture with Jim Bob and I and she handed the camera to Kirk Cameron,” Michelle recalled about their visit.

Kirk happily snapped the picture but it wasn’t until Jim Bob told the woman that he starred in the sitcom Growing Pains that she finally recognized him.

Fun fact: Kirk starred in Growing Pains from 1985 to 1992. Only 4 Duggar Kids were alive during its TV run.

Oh man, I bet Victoria Jackson is just so bummed that she didn’t get an invitation to this dinner! She could have sat with Jim Bob, Michelle, and Kirk and told them all about how DNA works, and it would have just been the best time. Kirk could have braided her hair while Michelle told them her innovative ideas about the world’s overpopulation problem, and then they could all talk about how adamantly opposed they are to an entire group of people having a basic right that doesn’t affect them whatsoever.

Aren’t dinner dates with friends just the bee’s knees?

The Duggars Want More Children, Because Of Course They Do

Michelle Duggar is 46 years old. Jim Bob Duggar is 47 years old. They have 19 children. Their youngest child was born three months premature and weighed one pound, six ounces. Michelle did have another pregnancy, but she miscarried.

Are we all caught up? Yes? Then let’s hear all about how these two want more kids:

Michelle Duggar is not pregnant again — yet — but her husband Jim Bob Duggar just said on national television that the parents of 19 have fun trying to make more babies!

The Duggars premiere the sixth season of 19 Kids and Counting August 28 and on TODAY Friday morning they said that they’re always trying to have more kids.

“We definitely are,” Michelle told Savannah Guthrie about their efforts to have more children.

“We would love more if the Lord saw fit to give us more, so we will wait and see,” the matriarch of the family said as she smiled.

Her husband Jim Bob, in front of his 19 children, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren then made the comment about having sex with Michelle.

“It is fun trying though!” Jim Bob joked and Savannah called him a “sly dog,” for the sexual innuendo.

Michelle, who is 46, said that she loves being pregnant and is hoping little Josie Brooklyn Duggar isn’t her last child.

“It will be a sad day for me whenever we’re not able to have any more children,” but she said that she loves being a grandmother to Josh and Anna Duggar’s two kids.

Oh.  Sure.   Sounds great. Awesome plan. Sounds super solid. Not.

Michelle Duggar Recorded an Audio Letter to her Deceased Child


If you can’t listen to it, or just don’t want to, the whole video is
Michelle Duggar talking to her miscarried/stillborn child, telling the child how much she’ll miss doing the things that a mom does with a child, things she won’t be able to experience, and though, yes, I’m kind of sensitive about these things lately and find her memorial kind of sad, I’m head-scratchingly confused about why she’d record this to begin with, let alone release it to the public. I think this would be a relatively private moment, a private event, one that might be memorialized in a baby book, or a journal, or, I don’t know, something other than an audio recording that somehow happened to end up in the media’s hands.

I realize that a lot of you guys think that she and her husband do these things more for fame and money than they do for any other possible reason, but does that not kind of defeat the entire purpose of the religion that she clings so firmly to? Or, I don’t know, do I have it backwards?
