The Duggars by mrsteabag on 1 September 2009 5:38pm
 
Just what we need in the US--another reality show about an unusual family. The Duggars belong to an offshoot of Christianity called Quiverfull, who are opposed to any form of birth control whatsoever. The have 19 (nineteen) children and number 20 is on the way, slated to be born after their first grandchild.

I heard it on the news about an hour ago. They are nice folk, but enough already! lol

Well they couldn't be as bad as the Osbournes!
 
Re: The Duggars by peripatetically on 1 September 2009 11:25pm
 
I love the Osbournes, Kaz. What's wrong with them?
 
Re: The Duggars by kazzzz on 1 September 2009 11:29pm
 
Um...nothing! Ozzie is a perfectly normal drug-fried ex rock star who staggers around in a haze and is obsessed with dogs that poo on the shag pile. Great family viewing!

he's had his problems alright. But he can't be all bad. Sharon has stood by him and although she's a little off, she is a good level-headed woman. The kids are doing much better after getting help for their addictions and they all seem to be good-hearted people too.

Oh I'm not saying they're bad, I enjoy the show, it's hilarious. Sharon is indeed level headed and I question how she can expose her husband (who is practically childlike from all the drugs) coz she's behind the whole thing quite clearly, to the world for money. I wouldn't do that to my family. Ozzie is portrayed as a bumbling fool. I think it's quite cruel.

Well, that show no longer plays in the USA, at least not in this region of the country. Ozzie did look bad, but we all now why. It was no secret. Through thick and thin, the family stuck together and came through a terrible period in all their lives. Must be a lesson there somewhere. But I see what you mean, Kaz. The one daughter didn't want to be part of the show and she was granted her wish.

Yes that's true. I agree that they're a close family, a lot closer than most by the look of them
Sharon's a showpony though ;)

That's her job and she's well suited to it. I like her very very much. I'm sure any of the family could have opted out . They are show biz people from the word go. so I can't blame her for anything. She's obviously mad for Ozzie and isn't ashamed. If they didn't want to have that show, I doubt they would have, really. I don't doubt Ozzie has the sense to so NO and to get his way. I'm sure they realized the opportunity there. We watched it often, just like we watch Gene Simmons and his porno wife. They are another very glitzy, tight-knit family who have invited the world into their house. Seems show biz people don't put it out there. Their stories were spilled out years ago, so there's nothing to hide, I guess.
