Also, I’m an old lady and slept through the premiere the other night. I’m told I missed some hilarity, Priscilla Keller’s gay husband, and some moments where I’ll watch to punch Michelle in the face. I’m so excited! What was the best part?
Amy Duggar, the lovable and outgoing cousin from “19 Kids and Counting,” spoke to me on August 25 for an exclusive interview with Examiner.com. She revealed new details about her famous Duggar family, her ongoing relationship with her boyfriend, and the upcoming premiere of “19 Kids and Counting.” As always, our chat was entertaining and enlightening as Amy gave me a peek into her private life, which is “going great!”
The premiere of “19 Kids and Counting” is only one day away and Amy Duggar said that fans are sure to love the new season. “It’s going to be a fun season. There were lots of valleys last season, but there will be more laughs, lots of fun and some surprises this season,” Amy explained. Although she couldn’t reveal any details, Amy hopes to be with the Duggar family when the show premieres on Tuesday. “I think everyone will enjoy this season for sure,” she added.
Since the end of last season, Amy Duggar has been blazing trails to Oklahoma to spend time with her boyfriend, Reed Taylor, a 23-year-old, college-educated construction manager. The two are together as much as possible and their relationship is turning serious. “We’re in full bloom. He’s great. It’s really fun dating your best friend,” Amy gushed during our interview. She joked that she travels to Oklahoma so often that she can make the drive in her sleep.
Amy also revealed that she and Reed have actually looked at wedding rings. It looks like the lovebirds are close to getting engaged, but Amy has no clue how Reed will propose. “He’s very romantic,” Amy stated and added that her family might know more about Reed’s proposal than they’re letting on. Amy also stated that Reed would probably be introduced on-air during the upcoming season of “19 Kids and Counting” because he is such a big part of her life.
In the meantime, Amy Duggar continues to work as a nanny for several families in her hometown. “I can’t have an 8-5 office job. I like the change of scenery,” she stated. When not working, she spends her time with Reed and her 19 Duggar cousins. When they all get together, “we always have something to do,” she said of the super-sized Duggar family.
Music is one of Amy Duggar’s true passions and she still has aspirations for landing a record deal in Nashville. She confirmed that several Nashville producers have reached out to her, but added that it is a lengthy process. “I’m trying to figure it all out. There are a lot of sharks in Nashville,” she said. She also explained that she is very patient when it comes to her music and ended our conversation by confidently stating, “God’s timing is everything.”
The new season of “19 Kids and Counting” premieres at 8/7c on Tuesday, August 28 on TLC.
Thanks! I might go change the tag…but I’m seriously lazy so maybe not…looking at it again you’re right…Jordyn looks so different now than she did, and if that’s a recent pic, as Jennifer’s appearance suggests, that’s definitely Mack.
Hilarity = a pro-Duggar blog right-clicking and re-uploading my stuff (trust me…they did NOT find these things anywhere else unless they have a time machine or access to my hard drive) presumably because they don’t want the “wtffundiefamilies” url in the source.
I know they don’t do that with everyone’s stuff, because I saw at least one picture sourced via my lesbian lover. Heh.
I don’t really care because I don’t OWN the images or anything, but still…I’ve done some impressive Duggar-stalking ball-busting over the years. Credit where it’s due, man.
Kirk Cameron is no stranger to media firestorms and now he’s chiming in on Missouri Representative Todd Akin's comments about rape.
On Tuesday, the former “Growing Pains" star, who created his own stir earlier this year by calling homosexuality “unnatural,” came to the defense of Representative Akin.
"I watched through the whole thing last night and he clearly is a pro-life advocate and for that I respect him,” Kirk told CNN on Tuesday, referring to Akin’s TV interview with St. Louis' KTVI where, while commenting on rape and abortion, the politician said, “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try and shut that whole thing down.”
Akin has since said he misspoke, and Cameron suggested the public should not judge the U.S. Senate candidate by one interview.
"He said that he misspoke and that he mis-phrased something and he apologized and I’m the kind of person that believes that, I would like to be evaluated by my entire career and my entire life, not two words that I would misspeak and then later apologize for, so he’s in a tough spot," Cameron said.
Back in March, Cameron’s own comments prompted headlines when he appeared on “Piers Morgan Tonight” and shared his personal views on homosexuality.
"I think that’s it’s unnatural, I think that it’s detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization," Cameron said of homosexuality, at the time.
Well if Mike Seaver says that if you don’t miscarry, you obviously weren’t really raped, it MUST be true!
JERUSALEM - It’s the latest prescription for extreme ultra-Orthodox Jewish men who shun contact with the opposite sex: Glasses that blur their vision, so they don’t have to see women they consider to be immodestly dressed.
In an effort to maintain their strictly devout lifestyle, the ultra-Orthodox have separated the sexes on buses, sidewalks and other public spaces in their neighbourhoods. Their interpretation of Jewish law forbids contact between men and women who are not married.
Walls in their neighbourhoods feature signs exhorting women to wear closed-necked, long-sleeved blouses and long skirts. Extremists have accosted women they consider to have flouted the code.
Now they’re trying to keep them out of clear sight altogether.
The ultra-Orthodox community’s unofficial “modesty patrols” are selling glasses with special blur-inducing stickers on their lenses. The glasses provide clear vision for up to a few meters so as not to impede movement, but anything beyond that gets blurry — including women. It’s not known how many have been sold.
For men forced to venture outside their insular communities, hoods and shields that block peripheral vision are also being offered.
The glasses are going for the “modest” price of $6.
Have you seen the pictures from Lawson Bates' cowboy photo shoot? They were on the family's website, but have since been taken down, probably because they provide empirical evidence that homosexuals are, indeed, born that way. You can find a few of them if you do a google image search (the one of him posing with the twin six-shooters is a personal favorite), though they didn't edit their description of him as their "official shopper". Fucking priceless.
LOL! OMG YES I have. I should post those sometimes. God bless him, that boy is the whole reason I have a “brokeback fundies” tag. Though really, of all the Bates boys, Nathan is the one that pings my gaydar the hardest.
