Michelle Duggar: Her Life Before Jim Bob Exposed!

These days Michelle Duggar is the very picture of peity and domesticity.

But the mother of twenty's past isn't as squeaky clean as you might expect.

Sources say Michelle has cut ties with the family that raised her and is doing her best to distance herself form her upbringing.

But it's hard to keep anything a secret when your one of reality TV's mst famous moms…

1. Jim Bob’s Bride

These days, Michelle lives a life of quiet domesticity. But her past wasn’t always quite so peaceful.

2. Michelle the Cheerleader

Michelle was the one who decided her daughters should only wear below-the-knee skirts. Interestingly, she didn’t always follow such a strict dress code herself.

3. She Wore What?!

And it wasn’t just while she was cheerleading that Michelle refused to cover up. “The neighbors used to complain because she would mow the lawn in her bikini and wear short skirts,” a neighbor tells Star magazine.

4. The Rebel

It seems Michelle’s parents were no fans of her fashion sense. “They were always trying to get her to cover up her legs,” says the source. So THAT’S where she gets it!

5. The Protesant Reformation

Michelle has changed so much since marrying Jim Bob that those who knew her growing up say they can hardly believe it. “I’ve seen commercials for the show, but I never in a million years would’ve believed that’s Michelle,” says former classmate Joe Roblee.

6. A Modest Wedding

Of course, Michelle put all that behind her when she met Jim Bob. The two were married on July 21, 1984 after just a few months of dating. But as much as she’s tried to leave her past behind her, reminders of her former life still pop up from time to time.

“Horror House” Parents Charged with 12 Counts of Torture, Better Be Imprisoned for Life

David and Louise Turpin – the California parents who reportedly confined, tortured and malnourished their 13 children – now face up to 94 years to life in prison, authorities announced on Thursday.

The couple was officially charged in court today with 12 counts of torture, following their arrest this week for committing allegedly heinous acts. 


As previously reported, the Turpins were discovered to have been keeping their kids captive for years, allegedly depriving them of food and keeping them chained to pieces of furniture for hours and hours at a time.

The kids ranged in age from two through 29.

A 17-year old daughter managed to escape and call the police, alerting them to the despicable conditions in which her siblings were being kept.

Bail has been set at $ 13 million for the Turpins in Riverside County, California.

Said Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin on Thursday afternoon:

“All the victims were and are severely malnourished. The 29-year-old female victim weighs 82 pounds.”

The kids were immediately sent to the hospital upon being rescued by authorities and are receiving various types of treatment.

They are receiving antibiotics, vitamins and nutrients and psychologists will soon be brought in to evaluate the victims when their physical conditions improve.

Hestrin also said that the children would “sleep all day and be up all night,” confirming reports from neighbors who have said they witnessed the kids being marched all around the home during very strange hours.

According to Hestrin, “none of the victims were allowed to shower more than once a year.”

Many were found lying in piles of their own feces this week.

“This is severe physical and emotional abuse we’re talking about,” Hestrin said. “It breaks our hearts, but we’re professionals and have to seek justice.”

He noted that the 17-year old who broke free and dialed 911 had been plotting her escape for two years.

On Wednesday, investigators served search warrants to the home, spending approximately seven hours going through evidence, and walking out with several boxes, two safes and pieces of wood that appear to have been part of bed frames.


David’s mother, Betty, told reporters after her son’s arrest that David and his wife had so many kids because God wanted them to.

“I feel they were model Christians,” she told the Southern California News Group on Wednesday, adding:

“It’s hard to believe all of this. Over the years, the Lord knows what happened.”

Adds David Macher, a public defender assigned to David Turpin:

“What we would like the public to know is that our clients are presumed to be innocent, and that’s a very important presumption.”

When asked about the number of counts and the nature of the charges, Macher said:

“It’s going to be a challenge.”

Aside from suffering severe caloric malnutrition associated with muscle wasting, several of the kids have cognitive impairment and “neuropathy, which is nerve damage, as a result of this extreme and prolonged physical abuse,” Hestrin says.

What will happen now to the victims?

The Riverside County Department of Public Social Services is seeking court authorization to provide oversight and care for the 13 siblings “to the extent that’s necessary,” says Susan von Zabern, spokeswoman for the Riverside County Department of Public Social Services.

She added on Tuesday:

“At this point, we’ll be doing a full assessment with medical professionals to better understand needs of the adults as well as the children, and we’ll be prepared to provide supportive services as well as engage other agencies in assisting these individuals to be stable.”


Kendra Wilkinson: Life is Kicking My Ass and My Mom Doesn’t Care!

Kendra Wilkinson tweeted out that she’s suffering in 2018.

In fact, it’s apparently her hardest year so far. She doesn’t spell out why … but we can guess.

But do you know who doesn’t feel for Kendra? Kendra’s mother, Patti Wilkinson.

Kendra Wilkinson’s 2017 was not necessarily ideal.

There were rumors that she and Hank Baskett would divorce.

Kendra was hospitalized more than once. She suffered a mystery illness … but, another time, she injured herself while pantomiming a handjob on stage.

To top it all off, Kendra — who’s taken other reality stars to task for racism in the past and, lest we forget, whose immediate family is black — was accused of racism after she picked cotton.

It was one of those very rare instances when someone accused of racism was not, in fact, being racist.

Despite all of that, Kendra seems to be having a harder time in 2018 — and we’re not even two weeks into the year.

Kendra tweeted:

“2018 has been so far the hardest start to a year in my life. Kickin my ass n putting me through a true test… but I survived this far. I choose to stand strong, be grateful n smile. Life is too short.”

It is, but that’s really vague, right? Well, she gets vaguer with some life advice that looks like it belongs on a trite motivational poster:

“The most important time in your life is right now at this moment. Let go of the past and have fun dreaming. Enjoy life’s little pleasures. Take control n prioritize who n what deserves this time.”

So, what does that mean? Is she okay?

Kendra’s mother, Patti Wilkinson, spoke to RadarOnline. But she didn’t seem terribly interested in addressing Kendra’s tweets.

“I am not interested in talking about Kendra.”


Patti is apparently vacationing outside of the US, and told RadarOnline that she is “not talking about Kendra.”

Infamously, Kendra’s mother wants to write a book that will expose details and secrets of Kendra’s life, which very understandably makes Kendra nearly lose it whenever it’s brought up.

It’s a sore point between the two of them.

We can only speculate as to what she might mean.

Remember how she was suffering from aches and pains that had her rushed to the hospital and canceling her Vegas shows?

It turned out that, according to Kendra, she had something called vaginal depression — aches and pains in her genitals that have no apparent physiological cause.

(A lot of gynecological ailments haven’t been taken seriously by the medical community over the years, because sexism ruins everything; we can’t help but wonder if doctors would have a better grasp on what causes vaginal depression if, you know, women hadn’t been excluded from becoming doctors for centuries)

Doctors usually prescribe sex, which should be great news for Kendra. Kendra describes herself as a “horny motherf–ker,” and it wasn’t just her emotional bond with Hank Baskett that she missed while she spent time in Vegas.

Speaking of Hank Baskett, some believe that old hurt feelings over Hank’s alleged affair with a trans model — well, affair is a strong word; the story goes that she maybe gave him a handjob — may still be causing problems.

Others hope that the couple is past that.

It’s also possible that Kendra is just working really hard on her 2018 body goals. Her New Year’s Resolution is all about herself and her figure, and she’s been hitting the gym hard to keep in shape.

So maybe she’s kicking her own ass?

It’s possible that we have no clue as to what’s making her 2018 into such a trial. But, it’s Kendra, so we doubt that it’ll remain secret for long.
