Duggar siblings

In response to the negative backlash to news that Josh Duggar molested his sisters for years, TLC Network pulled '19 Kids and Counting' from its programming schedule.

This action follows a typical pattern of TV networks that pull popular shows only to reinstate the shows when the negative publicity dies down.

From Yahoo News:

The network sparked outrage Thursday after airing a marathon of the reality series hours after Duggar’s confession.

TLC has pulled 19 Kids and Counting from its schedule in the wake of star Josh Duggar’s admission that he molested several underage girls 12 years ago, including his sisters.

TLC refused to comment on the incident Thursday, but the network sparked outrage later that evening when it ran a 19 Kids and Counting marathon. As of early Friday, the show had been scheduled to air on the morning of May 27, but it has since been taken off the schedule.

News of Duggar’s past indiscretions leaked Thursday and the 27-year-old, who is now married with three children, immediately issued a statement apologizing for his indiscretions. “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation.”

Despite public apologies and promises to seek therapy, there is no cure for the sexual disorders that arise as a result of unresolved conflicts in the stages of psychosexual development.

    You betta say that! Let that had been a Black male doing that or Mr. Prez.....they would have tried to make them register as a sex offender, thrown them under the jail, no bond, an "ole skool" (play with that) jury, straight guilty verdict, then life w/no parole in solitary confinement. :tea:

    For when you get here :hug: :kiss:

    For those who won't be fontin until next Tuesday....I pray you all have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day. Please take time to remember and if you can, thank Veterans who answered the call to service. From Crispus Attucks to the Marines who recently died in the airplane crashes to the most recent casualty.......sacrifice has a price.

    Please take time to remember and appreciate what it took for you/I to be here. Please don't forget the sacrifices of those men and women who have held up ( and continually hold up ) the blood-stained banner, and especially those who died doing so. Thank you to all who have (and are currently serving) served. God bless each and every one of you and I love all of you.

    These "religious" groups who separate themselves from society usually have something to hide. They know it's easier to mold the minds of the women if they control what they have access To. Like in 3rd world countries where women aren't educated. They know that an educated woman is a threat to their patriarchal society, so they keep them dumb and marry them off as soon as they find a suitable husband.

    Former "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" star "Mama June" Shannon is steaming mad that TLC has yet to cancel "19 Kids and Counting" after tabloid reports of Josh Duggar's child molestation scandal proved to be true.

    Shannon told TMZ that she is prepared to sue the network that aired and canceled her own reality show if the network doesn't act quickly. TLC canceled "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" in October 2014 after it was reported that Shannon was dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, whom, it later came out, molested her own daughter, Anna Cardwell, when she was 8 years old.

    Shannon's argument is that she never abused anyone and McDaniel never appeared on her show, yet Josh Duggar, who is a central figure on the Duggar's reality series, apologized on Thursday, writing on Facebook that he, "acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret."

    Shannon told the website the cancelation cost her hundreds of thousands of dollars, and believes that if the Duggar family gets to stay on air, the network owes her money because they aren't being consistent or fair.

    "I read that the Duggar family said, this happening with their son brought them closer to God and each other. So they're saying it's ok to have family touch time? Hell no," she told TMZ.

    TLC declined to comment to The Huffington Post regarding Shannon's threats to sue and any plans to cancel "19 Kids and Counting."
    I'm left with so many many many questions..... :think:
    So June isn't denying her boyfriend touching her child, but she wants to sue TLC for not pulling the Duggs fast enough?! :sideeye:

    Age has never been an obstacle for 16-year-old Thessalonika Arzu-Embry. After all, she's already got her master's degree.

    The North Chicago-area teen started homeschool at age 4, the Daily Herald reports. She began making an impact on others soon after.

    “Since I was 6 years old, I was an inspirational speaker at an organization called Tabitha House Community Service, a transitional housing for people who were displaced due to various situations such as natural disasters, abuse and violence,” she said in an email to The Huffington Post.

    At 11, she graduated high school and then earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2013. She completed classes online as she was traveling for church events and leadership conferences. Now armed with her master’s, Thessalonika hopes to help businesses learn how to prepare for upcoming trends and changes.

    She isn’t finished there, though. The teen plans on focusing on aviation psychology for her doctoral studies, a decision inspired by her father who is a private pilot and military veteran. He is now a manager at O’Hare International Airport. "I grew up around airplanes," she said. "We took flights all the time."

    What exactly can Thessalonika do with aviation psychology? Her goal is to use it to determine whether pilots are dealing with issues that could have fatal consequences once the plane takes off -- a topic that has been in the news lately. For her, it's a mix of two of her interests: business and psychology.

    In her free time (yes, she actually has it), Thessalonika enjoys playing tennis, swimming and being active in her youth group at church. She also has three self-published books out, which are available on her site. "Jump the Education Barrier" was written to help students finish college, and "In the Future" aims to help business owners with trends. Her third book, "The Genius Race," has a wider appeal. Thessalonika said it's designed to help people "be geniuses in various areas of life."

    We think she'd certainly have some tips about that.

  • Nakeya_J or Keke thanks to Unshake

    First off, I'm NOT marrying a man who touches little kids. Period. His own damn sisters!? Really sir!? And shame on the wife. You had babies with this creep!? So how can you be sure he won't touch your babies!? #FOH nope. And Honey Boo Boo momma is right. If her show got pulled off, 19 And counting should be pulled off too. And how did this man never get arrested?! How did he not have to register as a sex offender!?

  • WUT IZ A PHD!!! :grill:

    As the mother of a Marine, I want to say the sacrifices the fallen men and women soldiers can never really be paid full tribute to. These brave men and women laid down their lives so we could have ours. It is this valor that any ordinary Joe just doesn't have the courage to fulfill. It takes the strong hearted, the courageous, the few among millions to answer this call to service knowing that there is a chance that their very lives can be placed in harms way. Memorial day is a good start but nothing can give full tribute to the magnitude of this sacrifice. To the families who may have soldiers who fell in this act of bravery, I salute you I pray peace for you lives knowing your loved one is a HERO. Be blessed! and BEAUTIFUL MEMORIAL DAY!

    Im out :peace:

  • sassyshe

    Wut and all military families I hope your loves ones continue to be safe as they continue to protect our freedom.

    Now onto the shenanigans I'm telling everyone June was the one who leaked this story. Bet you one of them girls reached out to Anna months ago and in one of June and Anna Lil tiff over money Anna compared her to that Duggar mother. June got on her :pc: and did her own Lil investigation and sent copies to zmt

    Thats from messing with the gay mafia :clap:

    Good! Tired of seeing the mama & her mullet

  • Nancy Drew Ain’t Studdin’ You :yawn:

    Huckabee is a racist and a sexist (see his inappropriate comments on birth control and women being unable to control their libido), so it's no surprise that he's also an apologist for a yt male who preys on innocent young females. Hey Fukabee, there is no such thing as a "good" sex predator.

  • Meme81

    I really hope the wife had no idea before she married ole boy and that she files for divorce based on this info. She shouldn't take a chance he'll do the same to her daughter.

  • Mother Of Dragons, Shopaholic, Geek

    Meme his wife knew and she didn't care. Mama June is right. They canceled her over her messy bs and lack of concern for her children's safety. They need to cancel these Fuggars...I mean the Duggars for the same reason. Be consistent TLC.
