Jill Duggar: Jim Bob Is Afraid of Me! He Won’t Confront Me Face-to-Face!

Published

Joy-Anna Duggar & Austin Forsyth: We Were NEVER Members of Jim Bob's Weird Cult!

For most of her life, Jill Duggar was intimidated by her domineering dad, Jim Bob.

But now, those days are long gone, and it seems that father and daughter have reversed roles.

As you’ve likely heard by now, Jill released her debut memoir earlier this month, and the book has stirred up quite a bit of controversy within her family.

Jim Bob is portrayed as the villain of Jill’s story, which is exactly what fans expected.

But there’s another aspect of the relationship between JB and his second-eldest daughter that caught readers by surprise.

While in the past, Jim Bob always came off as a domineering, overbearing figure in the lives of his daughters, in Jill’s depiction, he seems a shell of his former self.

In a recent interview, Jill recalled her most recent encounter with her estranged father, and it seems that she was surprised by how unintimidating he was.

Jill says she was enjoying a “girls’ brunch” with sister Jinger Duggar when Jim Bob “showed up” unannounced.

Jill says she expected to be confronted by her father and was surprised by the sheepish way that he exited the situation.

“He won’t bring anything up when we’re all together,” she said in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, noting that her most recent interactions with Jim Bob have been “awkward” but not confrontational.

She added that Jim Bob’s attitude toward his children is “not like it used to be.”

“It used to be you would get pulled to the side into a room and [told off], you know, behind closed doors,” Jill continued.

Now, however, it seems JB is aware that his position of power within the family is not as secure as it used to be.

“But now… there’s this respect of our boundary, where it would not fly. Like, we would pick up and leave [if] something that came up,” Jill explained.

“I think what’s sad is that the pattern we’ve seen is kinda happening to us, where if you’re somebody that he can’t control then you’re cut off,” Jill’s husband Derick Dillard chimed in.

“It’s like, ‘I can’t control you, so you’re cut off.’”

Jill went on to say that she hopes to at least partially repair her relationship with her father, but she’s skeptical about that possibility.

“You can hang out sometimes, and have surface-level conversations,” she explained.

“Which is what I am actually wanting right now.”

Unfortunately, Jim Bob seems incapable of interacting with women he can’t control.

And it seems unlikely that he would be willing to change his ways and his ridiculous worldview for the sake of his relationship with Jill.

Tori Spelling Accused of Getting Fillers, Ozempic Body Amidst Family Financial Woes

Tori Spelling Accused of Getting Fillers, Ozempic Body Amidst Family Financial Woes

Even though Tori Spelling has had a miserable 2023, she’s still pushing forward.

We don’t just mean with life and family, but also with work. Specifically, she and other Beverly Hills, 90210 alums have been showcasing themselves to nostalgic fans at ’90s Con.

Obviously, this public appearance means photos and videos.

But fans are noticing that Tori looks … different. Some think that she had fresh work done on her face. But does she really have the budget for that?

Over the weekend, Tori Spelling ventured where many dare not to tread: Tampa, Florida.

This is where ’90s Con went down.

Tori and other alums of Beverly Hills, 90210 including Brian Austin Green met up with fans as the convention.

“OMG what happened to her!” exclaimed one commenter.

“Time to cool off on the fillers hun,” another suggested, adding that Tori looks “pretty without all that.”

An even more blunt follower demanded: “Please stop ruining your beautiful face with all the fillers!!”

Obviously, some of that was a bit hostile towards Tori. Especially considering that it’s coming from her “fans.”

Others at least sounded less angry and more like they felt concerned for her well-being.

Some expressed anxieties over her self-esteem. And then there were commenters who worried about her physical health.

“Ozempic face and tummy tuck stomach,” accused one commenter.

“What did she do to herself?” mused another.

And one Instagram follower quipped: “Somebody needs a few hamburgers and less plastic surgery. Oh geez. Not going to say who but it’s not a good look.”

First of all, let’s emphasize that we’re simply not here for the body-shaming.

Someone can be skinny or fat or anywhere in between. That’s not our business, and there’s no moral value to it. People just have bodies. So what?

A lot of people say “what matters is if you’re healthy.” Sure? But that’s also not anyone’s business. Tori doesn’t owe her fan’s health, even if we all hope that she’s doing well.

(At the very least, she’s doing better than she was a few weeks ago)

For the record, Tori has — as recently as just a couple of years ago — adamantly denied undergoing such procedures.

One example is that many people think that she has undergone a nose job. Not so, Tori has claimed. According to her, it’s the masterful contouring work of her makeup artist.

A lot of people also seemed to bristle at the idea that Tori was spending money on (alleged) cosmetics like fillers when her family is in such a dire financial situation.

Honestly? We have no idea what the specifics of her situation might be. Considering her mom’s finances and other factors, it’s not like Tori’s starving her kids to inflate her lips.

If she did get fillers or similar work done, she may have considered it to be a work expense ahead of the convention. The entertainment industry runs on different rules than most lines of work.

bitchy | Rupert Murdoch, 92, is retiring from the Fox & News Corp boards

bitchy | Rupert Murdoch, 92, is retiring from the Fox & News Corp boards

Rupert Murdoch has had a shockingly busy year, given the fact that he’s 92 years old. In March, he got engaged to a shady grifter who was too churchy for his taste, so he ended the engagement after six weeks. He was last seen sailing off into the sunset with a new Russian girlfriend in August. Back in April, Fox News also settled out of court with Dominion Voting Systems – the News Corp payout was $787 million, all because their anchors spread Donald Trump’s election lies in 2020. So, yeah… a busy year. Apparently, Rupert has seen enough and he’s now stepping down from the Fox and News Corp boards.

Rupert Murdoch is retiring from the Fox and News Corporation boards, the company is set to announce Thursday morning, making his son Lachlan the sole executive in charge of the global media empire he built from a small local newspaper concern in Australia starting 70 years ago.

The elder Mr. Murdoch will become chairman emeritus of the two companies,the company said in a release.

Mr. Murdoch, 92, had shown no intention to step down or even slow down — even after he named Lachlan as the heir to his business empire in 2019, when he sold his vast entertainment holdings to the Walt Disney Company.

Even now, in his emeritus status, he will continue to offer counsel, Lachlan Murdoch said in a statement.

“We thank him for his vision, his pioneering spirit, his steadfast determination, and the enduring legacy he leaves to the companies he founded and countless people he has impacted.,” Lachlan Murdoch, 52, said in a release the company put out Thursday morning.

[From The NY Times]

Sounds like Rupert will still be involved, just not to the degree he once was. This isn’t a full retirement, that’s all I’m saying. It looks like Lachlan was his dad’s bestest boy. James Murdoch broke away from his father’s empire and is now on the outside looking in (with billions of dollars). James and Prince Harry are also in touch, which Harry revealed in his lawsuit against News Group Newspapers (Murdoch’s British media arm). Anyway, I can practically hear the “Succession” theme song playing as I write. We’ll see how this all pans out, because I guarantee that Rupert will still be intimately involved in A LOT.
