It’ll be like a homecoming, only without the boutonnieres and the bad punch. Apparently, Josh and Anna Duggar are moving back to their native Arkansas less than a month after Josh Duggar admitted to sexual molestations of five, minor girls when he was a teenager. Duggar also resigned from his post in the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., where the family was living before. Also, it is reported that Kate Gosselin’s (of another super-sized, TLC family – Kate Plus 8) bodyguard, Steve Neild, is helping the Duggar family move. Even though TLC still hasn’t decided whether or not they’ll keep the Duggars’ reality series, 19 Kids and Counting, maybe spotting Josh and Anna Duggar with Gosselin’s bodyguard is a tip that TLC isn’t quite done with the Duggars.
But maybe the Duggars didn’t decide to move after the scandal’s backlash. Apparently, the house that the Duggars are moving into was purchased back in January. It’s possible they had a feeling that Josh Duggar’s secrets were going to come out, so they were trying to cover their bases before it was too late to get out of D.C. It’s also been rumored that Duggar was planning to run for political office in Arkansas before this news broke. Now that it’s broken, however, sources don’t know what Duggar plans to do.
Before his family’s move to Arkansas, Duggar used to work on a used car sales lot, so it’s possible he’ll resume that line of work when he returns to Arkansas. Anna Duggar is about to give birth to the couple’s fourth child, a girl, and the rest of the Duggar family has made it clear that they will help their son’s family financially if he can’t get another job. It’s likely this won’t be the most cheerful homecoming, but a homecoming nevertheless.
