Josh Duggar’s Extended Family Hoping He Gets “Broken” In Rehab

Although the immediate Duggar family has been largely silent regarding Josh Duggar’s recent sex scandals — an Ashley Madison account, paying a porn star for rough sex, etc. etc.– other than the one statement about how he’s headed for “rehab,” two extended family members spoke to “Entertainment Tonight” about their feelings on finding out their relative is a giant creep and a hypocrite.

Via “Entertainment Tonight“:

“We are all shocked and broken and furious,” one member of the Duggar family says. “Who did we spend Christmases with? Who have we grown up with? Who is this person? This is supposed to be a happy time, and there is a dark cloud over our family.”

“Josh’s integrity is gone,” the family member continues. “It’s scary. You never know who can have a double life. You really think you know someone. Josh was caught with his hand in the cookie jar and I hope he gets broken in rehab and gets the help he needs. I hope Anna finds the strength to make some changes.”

A second family member reveals,”My heart is broken over this,” adding that, “I hope and pray Josh gets the help he needs. I believe he is getting that help. We had no idea about any of this. We love our family and we are praying for Josh. Thank you for all the prayers and support of all the friends and fans.”

I do not blame them for being freaked the hell out. I am actually surprised that they are not more freaked the hell out.

I do not, however, believe he’s going to get the “help he needs” at Reformers Unanimous, the Christian rehab/labor camp he was sent to, given that all they do is do manual labor and pray. Dude needs some actual therapy. I mean, I don’t think someone needs to go to therapy for cheating on their spouse, but I do think he’s got some serious problems given his history of molestation and the messed up way he treated Danica Dillon, the porn star he hired for sex.

He needs to learn to respect women, most of all, and to keep his damn mouth shut about LGBT people when he’s going around getting his freak on. I don’t think he’s going to learn that in this particular facility. I think he needs some kind of cult deprogramming therapy after having been raised in that messed up environment.
