Since In Touch Weekly first reported on Josh Duggar’s molestation scandal, the family has been pretty down and out. Their reality TV show has been cancelled and there is no turning back – their careers in show biz are probably finished. While some people may feel some sympathy for the Duggar family, we think they kind of did it to themselves. Here are 7 ways they ruined their careers!

7. Pretending To Be Perfect

For years, the Duggar family pretended to be the perfect Christian family. They gave people tips on raising children, revealed their secrets for having a happy marriage and they paraded their charade on national television. We’ll give them some credit: Jim-Bob and Michelle might have a surprisingly strong marriage; however, when it comes to raising their children, they’ve messed up big time by not getting Josh proper help and by defending him as inappropriate behavior.

6. Hiding the Truth

The Duggar family obviously never wanted the public to know that Josh had molested five girls – four of them his sisters. When Springdale, Arkansas police closed their investigation in 2006 because the statute of limitations had run out, the case was referred to the Families in Need of Services agency and Department of Human Services agency. Then, nine months later, Josh sued the Arkansas Department of Human Services, so the results of the investigation and the trial would be sealed. It looks like they were thinking ahead with this one – the less the public can access, the better for them!
