Duggar Family to 'Share Our Hearts' in First Post-Scandal TV Interview with Fox News
The Duggars are finally speaking on camera.
More than a week after they responded on Facebook to the under-age molestation allegations against their oldest son Josh Duggar when he was 14 years old, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar announced that they are giving their first sit-down TV interview to Fox News.
News anchor Megyn Kelly landed the highly sought-after interview with the 19 Kids and Counting parents, which she'll conduct on Wednesday, June 3, from the family's Arkansas hometown.
"Next week we will sit down with Megyn Kelly on Fox News to share our hearts with you about the pain that we walked through as a family twelve years ago, the tears we all shed and the forgiveness that was given," the Duggars wrote in a statement. "We appreciate the outpouring of love and prayers for our family at this time."
Fox News will air the interview during The Kelly File on Wednesday as well as run a one-hour special on Friday, June 5. Both will air at 9 p.m. ET.
Since news of Josh Duggar's scandal broke earlier this month, TLC has pulled19 Kids and Counting from the air, Hulu has stopped streaming the show, over 20 advertisers have pulled their spots from the reality show and the 27-year-old resigned from his job at the Family Research Council.
As his father drove from California toward Nevada, repeating prayers while wearing a football helmet, a 12-year-old boy made an emergency call from the passenger seat, telling dispatchers he was concerned about his safety.
Americans trying to save some cash for unforeseen expenses are up against a lot — months of red-hot inflation, wages that don’t keep up, the sheer difficulty of delayed gratification in a time when people spend billions of dollars online in one day. “It won’t happen, it has never happened and unless employers start to help employees do that, we’re heading, really, down hill very fast,” she said. The savings rate has not been helped by the end of pandemic-era government benefits.
