Josh Duggar’s Ashley Madison Account Revealed, Meanwhile Parents Pitch Reality Show About Child Sex Abuse

Screen shot 2015-08-20 at 10.09.33 AMThe Lord has been testing the Duggar family ever since May of this year when their eldest son, Josh, admitted to molesting two of his sisters ten years ago, resulting in the family’s TLC show being canceled and their Bible-thumping brand being flushed down the toilet. Now, it seems He’s not finished testing them yet.

Once again Josh Duggar has found himself in the center of controversy, this time for keeping an active account on Ashley Madison, a nefarious website which helps facilitate extramarital affairs, Gawker reports.

It all started last month when Ashley Madison’s database was hacked. On Tuesday, the hackers released the names, email addresses and phone numbers for many of the site’s members, including 27-year-old “family man” Josh Duggar.

A credit card belonging to a “Joshua J. Duggar” paid a grand total of $986.76 for not one but two different monthly subscriptions to Ashley Madison, this included a $250 “affair guarantee” fee, which the website promises “increase[s] your chances of having an affair from possibly to definitely or your money back.”

The credit card’s billing address matched the home of Duggar’s grandmother, Mary, who lives in Fayetteville, AR, and the subscriptions were active from February 2013 through May 2015, right around the time when he confessed to fondling his sisters in their sleep. Interestingly, he was paying for the subscriptions while also working as the executive director of the Family Research Council. All the while his wife, Anna, was busy carrying his children.

So far, no one from the Duggar tribe has commented on Josh’s latest moral failing, but his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, have reportedly been busy pitching a new reality show idea in which they counsel young children who have been sexually abused.

That’s right, the parents of an admitted sexual predator, neither of whom have any professional licenses or experience dealing with victims of sexual abuse (aside from telling their own daughters not to tell anyone their older brother touched them inappropriately), want to help others overcome the trauma of being molested.

“The family can’t afford to not have the show,” an anonymous source told Star magazine earlier this week. “It is their main source of income, and with a family of that size, without it they’re in enormous trouble.”

  • S B Hadley Wilson

    The entire Duggar family needs to go away, as well as anyone who’s affiliated with putting them on the telly.

  • John Malin

    The Duggar’s and the Palin’s could become, along with Pat Robertson, a powerful voice and have a television show, say in the Arctic, preaching to Shell employees and polar bears. Of course, the polar bears have enough to deal with right now, they’re hungry and just might eat their tormentors!.

  • Paul Fucetola

    Maybe they can pitch a show called “the douche bag bunch” co starring Sarah palin as Alice the maid and Pat Robertson as Sam the butcher!! ????????????

  • Cam

    So the Duggar molested his sisters and cheated on his wife, but it’s homo’s that are ruining marriage.

    Um, yeah, ok.

    And once again, anybody screaming and judging others based on Family Values are 99% of the time hiding something.

    Duggar, George Reckers, Senator Vitters, Ted Haggard, Senator Craig, and the list goes on.

  • Juanjo

    Nothing like a little schadenfreude. Note the dates for when he cancelled his account? May of this year. So the entire time he has been busy telling the world about how gays are evil over at that nut case anti-gay organization not to mention talking about how he is right with Jesus, he has been cheating or actively trying to cheat on his wife.

  • Ladbrook

    Ugh. So who is actually surprised by any of this anymore? For molesting his sisters, he needed to be held accountable by law enforcement… but apparently that never happened. For this, he needs to be held accountable (primarily) by his wife… a woman who was probably just as poorly educated in home “schools” as Josh and his dozens of siblings were. So she’s probably being made to feel that all of this is her fault.

    I can just hear Josh’s mom now, “if you’d given him better blowjobs during your pregnancies, NONE of this would be happening right now. I can’t believe we let him marry you.” (Or something like that.)

    Of course, the real blame falls squarely on the backs of Jim Bob and his forever-pregnant wife. They raised him in a very sex-negative & sex-ignorant environment, and this is the result.

    The truly scary part comes later… when the younger Duggar boys start down similar paths as Josh… if they haven’t already.

  • Rich Penway

    I’m surprised he wasn’t part of the Subway sandwich guy scandal, given his fondless for underage girls.

  • Clark35

    How is this LGBT news or something that actually has to do with bisexual, gay/lesbian, and /or trans people?

  • RomanHans

    @Clark35: Clark, put your diaper back on and go play with your blocks.

  • Xzamilio

    It’s always beautiful watching the self-righteous puritans with their “morals and values” falling hard and gloriously. You know why people aren’t that hard on liberal-leaning individuals in the media who cheat? Because the majority of them aren’t pushing this fake facade of holier-than-thou moral superiority while having a Grindr profile with the handle “TwinkToilet09” or on Tindr looking for buxom brunettes to stick clothespins on their scrotal sac. Seriously… between hardcore homophobes and the Cosby types always trying to shame others for language or “values”, it should be the first red flag that these people probably have skeleton collections in their walk-in closets.

  • Xzamilio

    @Clark35: Maybe it’s the fact that he ranted and raved against gay marriage, and was a member of the Family Research Council, a vehemently anti-LGBT organization. You know… he was one of the ones saying that LGBT people were dangerous to children and were an affront to wholesome values, meanwhile, he was playing doctor with his sisters and paying to cheat on his wife??

    The hypocrisy is worth noting… and now, we wait for the news that they [the parents] sent one or two of the kids to pray-away-the-gay camp.

  • John Wadsworth

    Simple answer is he wasn’t geting any from wifey, and his sisters weren’t available.

  • Kangol

    @Xzamilio: Thank you!

    Troll35 knows why Queerty is posting about these disgusting anti-gay hypocrites but wants to drive the discussion off the rails.

    Meanwhile, the raving hom0phobic child rapist Josh Duggar has been revealed as an adulterer as well. BIG SURPRISE. This man and his family are the worst. They had a horrible gravy train rolling along, making money off making life hell for women, LGBTIQ people, and their own children, including harboring a child rapist, and then BLAM, the whole sham got revealed for the disgusting pit of filth it really is.

    They all need to go away and get psychological help. God won’t do the trick in their cases. The girls who were abused especially need support and counseling. I fear for any child associated with these people, though. They are very nasty, dangerous characters.

  • SteveDenver

    The Duggars ought to do a reality show about THEIR REAL SH!T. This Josh Duggar crap is hilarious and oh-so revealing. MAJOR CREEP.

  • Lancome Counter

    I think they should send the whole family to Mars for that space living thing NASA has going on

  • OhHellNo

    Nice try, Josh. We all know the Ashley Madison folks are way too old for you.

  • Mike Gillispie

    People who live in glass house shouldn’t throw stones.

  • Victor Barry

    Just think, 18 more where this gem came from. This is why anyone with that many kids should be considered demented.

  • AtticusBennett

    there are 19 children (thus far. ewwww) in this family. so far, anti-LGBT bigot has been exposed as a child abuser, and now a lying and cheating pig.
    sin sin sin, blah blah jesus sin sin forgiven sin righteousness jesus.

    here’s a sad reality – how many gay kids do we think are in this family? i mean, 19 kids. no gay ones?

    HOW is the family gonna deal with that, eh?

    if they choose to remain in the spotlight, mark my word – there will be a Grindr scandal. an ex-gay treatment scandal. cover up after cover up.

    18 more kids, 18 more potential “scandals” involving reality invading their pious and hypocritical delusional world.

    i feel very sorry for the dugagr children. they never had a chance.

  • Cagnazzo82

    Josh has actually released a statement stating he’s the biggest hypocrite ever: https://www.facebook.com/duggarfamilyofficial/posts/653931128073873

    Sad, ironic, and hilarious all at the same time.

    The Christian theology Josh claims to believe in states ‘let he who has not sinned cast the first stone’. Josh was leading a kinky double-life and casting stones in every direction.

    Looks like one finally hit him in the face.

    I would hope it has taught him, his family, and supporters a lesson… but I doubt it.

  • McShane

    Did anyone else notice that for a child molesting, sister diddling, Jesus freak… he listed some seriously vanilla wants and likes in his profile.

    “Cuddling & Hugging” “A Good Listener” “Gentleness” “Bubble Bath for 2” “Imagination”

    Also, on his OKCupid account he states that “humor” is something that he’s really good at. Good [email protected]’ luck with that.

  • Kevin J Desmond

    He’s a rapist and a stalker … I say cut his balls off so he can never reproduce !!!!

  • BlueDude

    Honestly, I’m curious to know how all this Duggar sh*t, and that of all the other hypocrites, gets revealed and played out in the right-wing-religiotard media. Is it brought out and discussed for the bald-faced hypocrasy that it is, or do the many kookoo evangetards merely ignore it and look the other way? Just like the nitwits on the GOP Clownbus saying really stupid sh*t and making bigger fools of themselves, I feel that the more sane voters will distance themselves.

  • Robert Becker

    So… Josh can be the Expert on diddling his sisters, viewing porn, having extramarital affairs, and then demonize Gays as the reason he does these awful things. And his parents will sit quietly in the background and say “Josh made mistakes, but we counseled him and he is forgiven”

  • Osman Akkurt

    Sex obsessed, 2faced religious bigot. So glad his dirty laudry got out in public.

    Thou shall not preach hatred in your ‘church’ daily about gays and go cheat/molest.

    Karma at work. ??

  • drivendervish

    So the Duggars will have to work like everybody else? Boo Hoo. Nobody in their right mind would have that many children and it was totally irresponsible to have them without a way to support them. These hate spewing hypocrites need to shut up and go away!

  • passingthru

    Where is his buddy, Huckabee, to stand up for him now? “Janet and I want to affirm our support for the Duggar family”, “Let others run from them. We will run to them with our support”. What a bunch of dogs – cleansed by the blood of christ!

  • Stu Hipwell

    The sad part is – all the bible thumping Christians will STILL come to his defense and shout “forgiveness”. That’s the sick part of this whole thing.

  • Will Glitzern

    OMG, I did not think it could get any better!

  • scotshot

    I didn’t know Ashley Madison has a division specializing in 5 year old girls.
    Come to think of it they could make a fortune from fundamentalist radical christian evangelical pedophiles. There seems to be a lot of them.

  • scotshot

    @Cagnazzo82: Great link! I wasn’t aware of J’s porn addiction. It’s interesting the reference to porn was removed, as compared to the marital cheating and pedophilia it seems porn is a minor offense.

  • Korree Johnson

    Why don’t his parents start looking for real jobs

  • captainburrito

    I wonder if christian go-funders would donate and save them. lol

  • Giancarlo85

    @Clark35: Because this family propagates anti-gay hatred and violence.

    And these right wing republican idiots reproduce and vote. That’s dangerous.

  • Barry Stradtner

    The Duggars are simply another form of the Kardashians – a family hearing themselves out for money and pseudo-fame.

  • Alan David

    Maybe TLC would like the have a new show about the Duggars… I cheated on my wife 19 times and counting !!

  • Giancarlo85

    I think the entire christian right is freaking out right now about the ashley madison hack and data dump. We’re about to hear all the juicy details come out about how half or more of the christian right is cheating on their spouses. I’m pretty sure some of the republican presidential candidates used the site too.

  • Blackceo

    While I certainly take great glee in this son of a bitch being exposed for the hypocrite he is, there are still very legitimate privacy issues that should be of concern, particularly after I read the following about a gay man from Saudi Arabia who used the site and is now scrambling to get out of his country before he may be killed. It’s now become possibly life and death for some people.


  • Kevin J Desmond

    Hey everybody here on this page … the person named Andrew Wilfred is using another person’s pic as his own. This person Andrew Wilfred is an Identity Thife … he is a known liar and is from what I understand a wanted criminal.

  • Mark Schweitzer

    ??The family can??t afford to not have the show,? an anonymous source told Star magazine earlier this week. ??It is their main source of income, and with a family of that size, without it they??re in enormous trouble.?
    That’s why you don’t have 19 friggin kids!! The whole thing is repugnant.

  • Rick Gillum

    Well child welfare needs to step in. The younger children can still be saved from a horrible life of abuse. They are nothing more than a way for the parents to make money. They have no way to support themselves. I would think at some point the state of Arkansas would not bad publicity to come out that the kids are being sexually abused by other family members. Save those poor children why they can before they are so mind fkd. It’s impossible.

  • Cam

    He has rereleased his apology with the section on porn addiction taken out. Apparently the evangelicals who wrote his apology didn’t know that the rest of the world won’t let you excuse anything you do if you just blame it on porn.

    Also, anybody notice that so far the media has been silent on this? NBC is either still protecting the Duggars, or people in the media want the story to die because they all have accounts.

  • BJ McFrisky

    Um, exactly how is this a gay issue?

    Oh, that’s right, it’s not, it’s just another excuse for angry Lefties to manufacture outrage over someone with whom they disagree politically.

    How about showing some real concern over real issues, like the Muzzies who’re tossing us off of rooftops just for being attracted to the same gender? Oh, sorry, that’s right—it doesn’t fit the narrative of victimization-by-westerners you so desperately seek to push.

    Yet again, Queerty’s true colors are showing, and man oh man are they ugly.

  • Gary Hecklinger

    Hang it up Duggars!! You’re done!!

  • Cam

    @BJ McFrisky: said…

    “Um, exactly how is this a gay issue?
    Oh, that’s right, it’s not, it’s just another excuse for angry Lefties to manufacture outrage over someone with whom they disagree politically.”

    And once again BJ will always, without fail, defend an anti-gay bigot if they are a republican.

    You ask how is this a gay story? How about the fact that this guy was the executive director of the largest anti-gay lobbying organization in the country?

    But then again, you already knew that, and are just desperately trying anything to protect another anti-gay bigot.

  • Cagnazzo82

    @BJ McFrisky: This Josh Duggar spends his time jerking-off to his porn addiction and sleeping with different women, and then goes out and has the audacity makes loud and boisterous speeches denouncing gays as being the biggest threat to the institution of marriage.

    And you’re saying we should give him a pass for being a massive, massive hypocrite?

    If this guy had his way there would be a constitutional ban on gay marriage (at the very least if not more). And he would be advocating for it while he gets to sleep around behind his wife’s back, and making a mockery of his own marriage.

    He *deserves* to be called out for his hypocrisy. He’s thoroughly earned it.

  • BJ McFrisky

    @Cagnazzo82: I’m not a fan of Duggar, nor would I ever defend him, but again I must ask, how is this a gay story? Because he was against gay marriage? Newsflash, bud: So were Obama and both Clintons at one point, but they’re now seen as a gay man’s best friend due to their “evolution.” And you wanna talk hypocrisy? How is it that someone against gay marriage is somehow a worse threat than the Muzzies who want us dead? Is it because he’s American? Christian? What is it that makes this dude so evil by comparison, especially when his dogma doesn’t involve killing us, but Islam’s does?
    I live for the day I receive a cogent answer.

  • martinbakman

    @Stu Hipwell: Forgiveness, redemption and coming back to Jesus is their ritual. They really get off on it.

  • Cam

    @BJ McFrisky: said… ” I’m not a fan of Duggar, nor would I ever defend him, but again I must ask, how is this a gay story? Because he was against gay marriage?”

    Please give it up BJ, the reason you didn’t respond to my post, even though it was before Cagnazzo82’s is because you couldn’t respond to the fact that I pointed out specifically that this is a gay story because this person was executive director of the largest anti-gay lobbying group in the country. Additionally his family involved themselves heavily in anti-gay politics, making robo-calls opposing gay rights legislation.

    But of course you will do anything you can to always defend any anti-gay bigot as long as they are associated with republicans.

    You prove time and time again, that you Log Cabin folks do not consider gays deserving of rights, you see your job as defending anti-gay bigots and providing them cover.

  • jlongnyc

    Josh Duggar “…I accept the consequences…” You. are. a. criminal. So let’s start way back and move forward. Go to jail, have your neglectful parents lose their children and go to jail regardless of the statute of limitations.

  • Clark35

    @Xzamilio: OK I don’t really pay that much attention to these people, or what they say or do. I just remember when the mother had an 18th child and then she said, “I want another!!!” as if having 18 kids is not enough.

  • Giancarlo85

    @BJ McFrisky: Because this story is related to one of our biggest opponents (The Duggar family)? And your feeble shitheaded attacks on Obama and Hillary are noted. You are a idiot who has never provided a cogent answer for ANYTHING on this site. Every post you make is vapid, dimwitted and idiotic. I almost question your mental sanity.

  • Xzamilio

    @Clark35: Come to the south lol. It’s hard not to pay attention to idiots like the Duggars because they are a dime a dozen here in this part of San Antonio. Which is weird, because just over the horizon is liberal ass Austin, Texas.

    @BJ McFrisky: Surprisingly enough, we can walk and chew gum at the same time. And despite the backwards ideology that is Islam — and ISIS and Hezbollah, Boko Haram, the Taliban, Al Queda, etc. — how exactly is this a direct issue of us here in the U.S.? I tried the same deflecting shit a while back and was called on it — and rightfully so.

    Look, dude… most of us already know Obama and Clinton’s “evolution” was more of where the general public was going and less of an actual evolution. Biden went on record first as supporting SSM and Obama dragged his feet on this until the bitter end. The Duggars are the embodiment of that right-wing Christian hypocrisy — using us as a platform to browbeat and call degenerates, and meanwhile they are doing every nasty thing under the sun. I’m gonna suspend the niceties with you on this one because you are being intentionally obtuse.

  • Giancarlo85

    @Xzamilio: BJ will stick by the same story no matter what. He’ll defend any right winger. And Hillary was making supportive speeches to the world in defense of LGBTQQI people in 2011. Even before Biden opened his mouth.

    The right wingers have gone after us time and time again… and they are relentless. And yes, bringing up Muslims simply is a deflection.

  • Clark35

    @BJ McFrisky: Well said.

    How about showing some real concern over real issues, like the Muzzies who’re tossing us off of rooftops just for being attracted to the same gender? Oh, sorry, that’s right—it doesn’t fit the narrative of victimization-by-westerners you so desperately seek to push.
    Yet again, Queerty’s true colors are showing, and man oh man are they ugly.

    I read an article weeks ago about how IS hanged a man simply because he is gay and people in the crowd were happy about this but queerty said nothing about this.

  • Cam


    It’s always funny when one person has a second screen me defend the first screename.

    These Log Cabin guys, always jumping through hoops in desperation to defend any anti-gay bigot if they are a Republican.

  • Giancarlo85

    @Clark35: You’re so full of shit it’s coming out of your ears and eyeballs. You make me sick on so many levels. You fucking right wingers. You are the ones that created ISIL.
