And the big ole checks rolling in from TLC for their show. Also the fact that they alone don't raise their kids, the older kids raise the younger kids.

There's no way her doctor didn't tell her it was risky to keep getting pregnant. Seeing how much of a preemie Josie was should have been a sign.

Just because they're not on food stamps, doesn't mean the kids are getting everything they need. Emotionally, they're not getting the individual attention they should be getting from their parents. Overall, they do seem like great kids though.

Exactly.

Ditto on that TLC check. They appear to be decent people, though I certainly do not share their religious affiliations.

Enough is enough though. Stop with the kids.

However, all I am saying is babies are result of making love and showing affection to each other. She was never told by doctors to stop having children, if they was saying that then she would've went through a hysterectomy.
I see no diffeernce between her and those woman that wants children just because they want to stay on food stamps and governmental assitance. AT least these children are grown in a healthy environment, loving caring family and clothing and they all play a musical instrument. These children are well behaved more then children that are among a few in the family.

I have to ask: are you for real?

If you're wondering how much the Duggars get paid, I found this online:

Quote:
An E! Online article published in September 2009 stated, "According to reality producer Terence Michael, the general rule of thumb is that reality-show families earn about 10 percent of a show's per-episode budget. So, if TLC budgets about $250,000 to $400,000 per episode-and Michael suspects it does-that would mean $25,000 to $40,000 in the Duggars' pockets for four or five days' work, which is roughly how long it takes to film a typical episode." Read more in the related link below.

Haha, days of 'work'. Because it's so hard to sit back and let the kids raise each other while some cameramen stand in the background and film it

I've had a filming crew in my house, it's not as easy as it seems. When they do interviews, it's a lot of setting up, makeup (for them, not when I did it), refilming, and waiting around. I'm not saying it's worth the large amounts of money that they make, but having camera people in your house isn't as easy as it seems. I'm sure they love the limelight though, that's why they're having everything filmed.

Why did you have a filming crew at your house? Are you a Kardashain? Or will we see you on an upcoming episode of "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant?" Did you go to pee this morning and pop out a baby?

I'd rather they live off TLC than live off the taxpayers. Well, other than that nice check parents get at tax time that the rest of us don't get. But they don't do welfare and food stamps.

At least since they got the TLC gig. I suspect welfare/food stamps are rampant in other not so well known big families.

"waiting around" is hard?

I've been on TV too. And no, waiting around isn't hard. But it makes it impossible to do other things, like have a regular life.

And they'll film things late at night and just close the blinds and pretend it's day. So you're tired but you have to act like you just woke up or something.
When I did it, it was for a home makeover. So there was the added annoyance of having to move the cats and fish to a new place while they did the makeover. And then also, we explained that we rented and planned to move soon but they didn't take any of that into consideration. So a month later we had to paint over everything they did. We tried to convince them to do the makeover for the condo we owned since you know that might actually be useful, but they didn't want to do that. They had a deadline and whatnot.

It wasn't terrible or anything. And if I got paid then I wouldn't complain. I might do it again under the right circumstances, but truthfully it's kind of a pain because it's so invasive.

My sister was on an episode of "Life Moments" when she was pregnant with her 2nd child. The camera crew shot everything in my parents house (I was in high school at the time). We had to eat cold pizza for dinner because they weren't ready to film when the pizza arrived.

And someday, I will be on I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant. Just not now

What a bummer that you didn't own the place. How did you end up on the show anyway? Did you sign up for it?

It really is invasive. Many people who have never been to a filming of anything don't know how long it takes. When they film a 22 minute show, it takes about 2-3 hours of actual filming, not including the week of rehearsals (you don't have that with reality shows, so it's longer). My sister's story was just a segment and it took a few days. Plus they were in the room when she delivered.

Staying "fresh" is hard when you're tired of waiting around. It's exhausting to wait and wait.

I'm sorry but I've got to ask what was the point of even doing the show? You didn't get paid, you weren't going to stay in the place they were making over and it was a hassle. It just seems like a whole lot of annoyance for no reason.

Is she glad she did it? Was it all worth it for a short time on tv?

Yeppers I agree and their two books and DVD's and other stuff and they own a few buisness , but they don't worship the money they are pretty frugal and with loads of children you need to keep money away for college funds.
Also before this thread continues more I want to point out and it was in the news awhile back ago you can google it, that Michelle Duggar discussed the size of her family stating that its not for everyone, so for the record if you don't feel great having a large then don't have a large family, this country USA is built on different beliefs, values and principals and the nature of our country you have a right to any belief system and values and criteria how you want to live.

It was Queer Eye, which was a cool show. My husband got the makeover. Only part of the makeover was a home redecoration. He did it mainly for two reasons: One - they organized a charity celebrity poker tourney that gave Habitat for Humanity $10,000. Two - he says he wanted to experience reality TV because it's a zeitgeist (his words).

She is, but she loves the limelight like the Duggars. She did theater in high school, she likes being the center of attention (it's her personality). It was a bigger inconvenience for my Mom and the rest of the family, but luckily it was only for a few days, not years like the Duggar show.

Queer Eye was a cool show! Carson is so entertaining! That's really cool that he got a makeover and it included the home makeover also and that they organized the celeb poker tourney.
LOL well I guess he can cross "go on a reality tv show" off his bucket list.

I see. That makes sense.

Thank you both for elaborating on your situations.

I dunno if anyones seen this, I found it through the link that Joe posted.

http://www.tmz.com/2011/12/14/duggar.../#.Tu-eJ9X6PKf

Warning: Possibly upsetting pics.

Now OK I can understand why people would want to take photos of their miscarried baby. but why are they released on the internet? i guess if they lose out from the tv show.....?

According to the link someone from the memorial put them on twitter. Still, if you didnt want them to end up with the media youd be careful who saw them/got a copy

They distributed photos to people at the memorial, and a family member posted them on twitter. Then they surfaced on a fan site, and then I guess TMZ got them and posted them.
