It turns out Jim Bob and Josh Duggar aren’t the only ones in the family with some backward views about women: In a new interview with GMA, John-David Duggar, 26, said he usually allows his younger sisters to do his laundry because they “love” it.
“Sometimes I do my own [laundry],” said John-David, who still lives at home with the rest of his unmarried siblings, including twin Jana Duggar. “But a lot of the time, the girls love to do it. At least, I think they do.” Interviewer Paula Faris asked the oldest Duggar daughters, who were also participating in the interview, if they really love the chore — and they shockingly said they don’t.
Neither John-David nor Jana have ever been in publicly revealed relationships. However, younger sister Jessa Seewald joked they may soon have big announcements: “We’ll see. There are lots of exciting things coming up. I mean, we’re not going to say anything about the double wedding of the twins, but…”
In the interview, which precedes tonight’s premiere of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, John-David also commented on how the family is coping after Josh Duggar’s scandals. “The devil took his best shot. And he tried to take our whole family down, but God has really used this to — instead of tearing us apart as a family, he’s using it to draw us together,” John-David said. Of Josh, who recently returned home from months in a residential treatment facility, he added “We’ve forgiven, and we’re moving on, and we’re looking to the future.”
Jill & Jessa: Counting On premieres on TLC tonight at 9/8c.
