Michelle Duggar Got A New Haircut, Looks Amazing, Hates It

We all know what Michelle Duggar‘s hair situation is. We’ve seen those crunchy curls and those big ol’ bangs for years now. We all know what’s going on there. She’s never changed her hairstyle – seriously, never, she says that she’s had that hairstyle for the past 40 years – so we’ve never really had a reason to think that things could get better for her. But they did.

For Michelle’s 46th birthday, her kids planned a bunch of surprises for her, and one of them was a makeover. One of her friends did her hair, and she did a damn fine job:

Amazing, right? She looks so good with that hair. She looks phenomenal. And I know there’s a pretty good chance that this isn’t the first time you’ve seen her new look, but I can’t stop talking about it yet. It looks SO GOOD.

Here’s the part that you maybe haven’t heard about yet: Michelle hates it.

From People:

“Going from curly to totally straight was a shock for me,” Duggar admits, “but I am loving it and I have been doing both styles, curly and straight, since the cut.”

When her lifelong pal Cindy suggested the shorter style, Duggar let go and let the inches come off without trepidation, she shares.

“I can trust Cindy,” she says. “But my back was to the mirror and I didn’t know how much I got taken off. It was too funny when I realized how much was gone! And it felt so light.”

So what does husband Jim Bob think of his wife’s new ‘do?

“I know Jim Bob likes it long and I am trying to impress him — what he likes is what I want,” she says. “I think he was a little shocked at first, it was so straight and so different. But he does like it. I think I shocked everyone at the [birthday] party. They were very surprised.”

The different style is taking Duggar a little while to master — and a little while for her youngest, 2-year-old Josie, to get used to as well.

“Little Josie kept touching my hand and saying, ‘Mommy? Mommy? Mommy?’” Duggar says. “She wanted to make sure I was still me.” But despite the big change, “I definitely like the new look,” Duggar insists. “It has been fun.”

Oh, honey. No. You don’t like it. Probably because Jim Bob was a passive aggressive asshole about it and now you feel self conscious. Probably you don’t even realize how sad your statement of “what he likes is what I want” is. Probably you need to be emancipated.

But seriously, how great does she look?

New BFF Alert: The Duggars and Kirk Cameron!

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.
