Josh Duggar can count out Dr. Phil McGraw as one of his supporters. The "Dr. Phil" talk show host appeared on ABC’s “The View” earlier this week and when asked about the disgraced reality star, he said he didn’t think the “whole truth” about his cheating and molestation scandals has been revealed.
During a hot topics discussion McGraw predicted more will come to light about Josh Duggar, 27, former star of TLC’s now-canceled “19 Kids and Counting” and eldest son of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, according to ET Online. As previously reported, in May, Josh Duggar was discovered to have molested five underage girls, at least two of which were his sisters, when he was a teenager. He became the center of a separate controversy last month when he was revealed to have had paid accounts on the cheating site Ashley Madison. While the two scandals have rocked the devout Duggar family and led to their long-standing reality show’s cancellation, McGraw says the controversies are most likely far from over.
“We have not seen the bottom on that yet. I mean, there’s more," he said. "My dad used to say for every rat you see there’s 50 you don’t. The fact that, to assume that everything you see is everything there is would really be naive. I just don't believe that the whole truth has come out yet."
McGraw is not the first person to hint that Josh Duggar may have more skeletons in his closet. Before wedding Josh Duggar’s cousin, Amy Duggar, earlier this month, Dillon King slammed the “19 Kids and Counting” star in an interview with In Touch Weekly. Following reports Josh Duggar had an affair with porn star Danica Dillon, King told the magazine that he believes the father of four most likely had more than one mistress. “Oh, I’m sure it’s not just the one person,” he said.
Ultimately, he said the numbers of mistresses he may have had doesn’t matter. “It’s really sad. And I don’t think it matter who [he’s cheated] with. Cheating is cheating. The fact of the matter is he cheated.”
After Josh Duggar’s name was connected to the Ashley Madison site, he confessed to be unfaithful to his wife of six years, Anna Duggar, in a statement on Aug. 20. “The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings,” he said. “As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example.”
