The Other Duggars: The Howlers, Lost Girls, Grandma Duggar and Amy

Recommended Posts

Grandma has a spill on the escalator at the airport as they leave Kentucky. Having gone through 5 broken bones in the last two years with the MIL, at Mary's age, she's lucky she didn't break something. I think she's mid 70's now?

Whew! Well luckily someone was there to capture that riveting moment on film. Am kind of surprised Michelle is helping. Just a small part of me wishes they would have captured the actual fall on camera in the slim hopes Grandma belted out an "Oh fuck" right before she fell.

Poor grandma, a video and everything. 

Since they were so close to the bottom I'm surprised they had her walk up and didn't take an elevator. What assistance does Michelle think she's offering by being ahead of her on the stairs?

Why isn't someone else with them as she's going up, just Michelle?

I don't think the employee could touch her due to liability issues. I also wondered why the escalator wasn't turned back on or she didn't use an elevator. I assume they're in Lexington; it's not some backwater like their airport in NWA. I'm sure that the place has accommodations for those who can't do stairs wheneverthe escalator breaks. My MIL couldn't do that many stairs; in this situation, she would have to use an elevator. Period.

There's a sign for an elevator right next to the escalator.  They could have used the elevator if they had wanted to.

Okay, I see it in the screenshot, which, to be honest, I skimmed over when I first saw it.

I'm glad she didn't get hurt. She may have insisted on walking up. I think many people feel embarrassed when they do something like that and just want to move on and not draw more attention than they already have. (Unfortunately I speak from personal experience, lol)

Please tell me that Michelle is just fat and not pregnant.

Oh God, let's just hope Michelle's top is laying funky & she's not in the family way.  Since she is 50, I doubt it but could you imagine if she was with her, Jill & Anna all being pregnant at same time?

Why couldn't she have at least bought a blouse to match the dress (or whatever it is she's wearing) ?  Does she really think the turquoise top matches? 

I'm  glad Grandma was OK.  She seems to be a strong lady.

Well, Michelle and Jim Bob were photographed at a fertility clinic a couple of years ago and women in their 60s have given birth with a lot of medical assistance.  Personally, I think she's just gained a lot of weight.

Something else that really gets to me about that photo is Michelle's matted hair.  How does she ever get a comb through that mess?  Her hair reminds me of an uncared-for dog that turned up at the SPCA.  The poor dog had so much matted hair that he could hardly walk.

Your grandma falls down the escalator and you think to whip out your phone to record the scene? 

Is that weird, or is it just me?

Michelle is not pregnant. She's 50 years old and has had 20000 pregnancies. She is always going to have a bump and will never have a flat stomach.

Was that posted by a Duggar or by a bystander? Edited to add: at the lower left corner it says it was posted on FB by someone named Carrie Park Sears. It's quite possible she recognized the Duggars and whipped out her phone to get the action. Or she may have started recording because a woman had fallen, before realizing it was a bunch of Duggars.

I loathe the Duggars, but since we don't have sound we don't know what Mary was saying as they were helping her stand up. She may have insisted on continuing up the escalator. And I'm not sure how many of us would, in the heat of the moment, think "oh, let's take an elevator" especially if Mary was insisting she was fine and just wanting to get on with things. Mary was probably embarrassed and didn't want to be fussed over and treated like a frail old lady. I loathe Michelle but can't snark on her for this situation.

Didn't Michelle film her son (on her iPhone) falling into a stage pit ?

I don't know if she filmed him actually falling, since I think it was just kids playing on the back of the stage, but she definitely filmed him down in the orchestra pit, both on the ground and being wheeled away on a stretcher.

And what's creepy is that the poor kid was bloodied, bruised & probably scared & in a lot of pain.  Thanks mother of the year.

IIRC, didn't he have to have his jaw wired shut? I remember that when the Duggars did their song and creaky violin act the next day, Jason (I think it was him) was offstage in a wheelchair.

From what I remember he was hurt badly.  It wasn't just a little skinned knee.

Yes, she did, 

When they were on 19 Kids and Counting, TLC sometimes bought footage the family members filmed themselves when the crew wasn't around.  Josh cashed in on that several times and that is why he sometimes got a credit as part of the production team.  That was the original idea behind Duggar Studios and the film editing room next to the boys' bedroom at the house.  When it comes to the Duggars, follow the money trail.  Michelle was hoping to make an extra buck and she really could care less about her kids.  (But we knew that, didn't we?)  I wonder if they sued the place where the accident happened.  Wouldn't surprise me if they did.

Josie's seizure was filmed by the family because the TLC crew wasn't there when it started.

I recall that they heard the screams and ran to him. I don't think Mechelle filmed the initial accident. The kids were off playing without adult supervision, which is par for the course with these people. Since when have Boobchelle ever supervised their kids, with the exception of their love lives?

Here's the top of Possum Head filming as TLC also rollIed. I assume they had the lighting. Leghumpers have argued that Mechelle was using her flashlight app on her phone, but then why is Mechelle's head also lit? Leghumpers lose, as usual.

Michelle was filming Jason and so was TLC.  Josh was also filming and texting (presumably about Jason - HAHAHA)

I think we have a failure to communicate. I know Mechelle, TLC,and Smuggar filmed in the orchestra pit. No adults were around when the actual accident happened. Jason was playing with the other younger Howlers when he fell.

Then there was the time when one of her daughters got her head stuck in a railing and Michelle just stood there pointing and laughing.

Yes, it was. And Boob made jokes about the "big Duggar heads." They don't even have empathy for their own kids.

Well, you do it when your child falls into an orchestra pit.

The video was not taken by a Duggar. Someone else's name is on the (very public) FB page I linked.

I hope that is someone else's dog & they will quickly rescue it from the feral child.  I bet the little dog has better table manners than Josie.

I won't ever forget the kid screaming and the look of sheer terror on that poor baby's face. Which of course we all got to see thanks to Turd Mom of the year. Who films a child when they are scared and hurt for everyone to see?

Wow Josie looks a lot like Jackson in this picture; she used to look like a towheaded Mechelle but now I see the KJB coming out.

The texture of Josie's hair seems so much different than the rest of her numerous siblings.

Maybe it's from the gobs of baby lotion MEchelle used to put on it.

Why was Michelle putting baby lotion in Josie's hair?

I don't know, but I watched her do it once on an episode. She used at least three or four pumps.

My baby niece has eczema on her scalp and we put lotion on it. I don't remember the clip, but maybe Josie has sensitive skin there? I have eczema on my scalp as well and I put lotion in it from time to time, but only when it's really bad. I was somehow blessed with dry but oily skin. Makes no sense.

That picture made me realize Josie is really growing up. She has always looked like an eternal baby to me, but she looks like she's actually a kid now, if that makes sense.

I think that was some kind of dippity-do type hair gel Michelle was slathering on Josie's head, not baby lotion.

As to your second question ....  vain idiots with crunchy hair obsessions and way too much free time?
