Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar will have the floor on Wednesday night. Following their son Josh Duggar’s apology for molesting five underage girls as a teenager, an admission that rocked their “19 Kids and Counting” fan base and resulted in their long-standing reality show being pulled from airwaves, the couple will appear on “The Kelly File” to speak out about the controversy.
Fox News’ Megyn Kelly will interview Jim Bob and Michelle, and according to the Fox News star, “Nothing is off-limits.”
“This isn’t going to be a cross-examination of a family. It’s going to be an interview. I want to hear their story and I think America wants to hear their story now,” Kelly said on her show Monday night, according to Us Weekly. “I don’t plan on getting into the specific details about what was done because my understanding is the victims don’t want to discuss that either.”
Kelly expanded on her plans for the interview, telling Deadline on Wednesday she warned the reality stars' representative she is not known for "giving anyone a pass." “If you want a soft place to fall, I’m not your person," Kelly recalled of the conservation. "I think it’s a service to you to have me ask tough questions."
According to the official synopsis for “The Kelly File” episode, the Duggars will be questioned about “their son’s molestation allegations and the controversy surrounding their family.” The interview will reportedly take at their famed Tontitown, Arkansas, home, featured on “19 Kids and Counting.”
