With critics calling for TLC to cancel her reality show, Michelle Duggar has launched a counter-petition to save 19 Kids and Counting from cancelation.

A Change (dot) org petition to cancel 19 Kids and Counting was actually started earlier this year, after Michelle made controversial headlines politically.

She allegedly recorded a robo-call allegedly asking Fayetteville, Ark. residents to vote to repeal a law that prevents discrimination. Yes, that prevents it.

The law in question condemns property and business owners to oust or fire people based on gender identity. In other words, transgender Americans.

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar then sparked an even bigger public controversy this month when they invited fans to share kissing photos on Facebook.

After they reportedly took down submissions from gay couples, they faced backlash online, and the aforementioned petition began to widely circulate.

If you watched The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 Episode 1 this week, then you know that Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin joined the cast and immediately declared their place as the poshest, prettiest couple on a show full of posh, pretty people.

Hamlin on Housewives was something of a surprise, as it was originally rumored that he wouldn't be participating in the show, because...ya know, he has a real career and all.

But it looks like Harry's on board after all, and we already have reason to believe he'll be involved in some serious Housewives-style drama.

You may remember this Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 5 trailer. The Lisa RInna bug-out around the 1:30 mark stands out in particular:

Lisa can be heard to remark, "Don't you ever go after my husband!" before hurling a wineglass in the proud Housewives tradition. Now we might know what caused her to lose her cool:

Earlier this week, reports that John David Duggar is courting a "mystery brunette" had the Duggar family faithful preparing for another member of the famous family to be married off.

Now, however, it looks as though there is no chaste side-hugging romance in JDD's life, and to make matters worse, his parents insist on reminding the world that he's a 24-year-old virgin.

John David Duggar

"Just thought we'd set the record straight," Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar wrote on their blog today. "John David is not courting and not in a relationship...and he has never been in one! [He is] still looking and waiting for the right one."

JD, bro - you're 24! The right one is anyone and the right time is now!

We kid! The Duggars have their own courtship process and it seems to be working for them so far. And from the sound of things, John shouldn't have anything to worry about, in terms of finding a mate:

Nirvana and Foo Fighters rocker Dave Grohl opens up in a new interview with The Sun (UK) about why he doesn't smoke weed or do drugs anymore.

Spoiler alert: It somehow involves Keeping Up With the Kardashians!

"I stopped doing drugs when I was about 20 years old," he recalls. "But just recently I thought, 'Oh I'm going to start smoking pot again to cure insomnia.'"

"I'd put the kids to bed, go upstairs and smoke a little pot. But then I'd get stuck in front of the Kardashians on TV for 45 minutes. And it freaked me out."

"I was like, 'I'm never doing this ever again.' It's definitely not for me."

Hilarious bottom line: If you insist that you must watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians online, fine. If you wish to smoke weed, that's your decision.

Combine the two and prepare for downright scary results, though.

Brandi Glanville doesn't do anything halfway, so perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that when she's on the market, she attacks the singles scene like the hungry cougar that she is.

Until recently, Brandi was dating some 23-year-old and creepily compared the relationship to "having a third child."

Not surprisingly, the dude dumped Brandi (probably after she licked her thumb to wipe some schmutz off his face), and she's once again single and desperate to mingle.

Brandi Glanville: Botox Gone Wrong?

But if you think Ms. Glanville is going after guys her own age, then you don't know Brandi. This woman is allergic to men over 40...but that's not the reason her face is all puffed up:

Government representatives in Poland have pooh-poohed efforts to use Winnie the Pooh as the official mascot of a town playground.

According to The Croatian Times, local officials will not allow the beloved Disney character to grace a poster near the park due to his “dubious sexuality." We're not making this up.

"The problem with that bear is it doesn’t have a complete wardrobe,” says Councillor Ryszard Cichy. “It is half naked, which is wholly inappropriate for children.”

In Winnie the Pooh's defense, he is wearing more articles of clothing than most bears out there.

Also, he's a cartoon.

The Duggar family is at the center of massive controversy this week, with more than 120,000 people signing a petition to cancel 19 Kids and Counting.

It's far from the first time they've faced heavy scrutiny, however.

In many ways, the family's most recent scandal is a culmination of many. The petition was actually started months ago, only to gain traction recently.

Here's a look back at 13 times the TLC stars faced backlash ...

Jessa Gets Strapped
Jessa Duggar and her then-boyfriend Ben Seewald began courting controversy almost from the moment they started dating, posing for photos like this one - a picture that now seems tame considering what they've been stirring up more recently.

The Duggars, as we all know, are conservative individuals.

Staunch ones at that, standing out among today's TV offerings, drawing many like-minded viewers. But their earnest, authentic way of life also has a broader appeal.

As more people watch 19 Kids and Counting online and their fame has grown due to social and traditional media, so has the criticism they face quite often.

The family's views on dating, courting, marriage and child-rearing are noteworthy enough, but they've also proven polarizing on political and religions grounds.

It’s difficult to get Republicans and Democrats to agree on anything these days.

But unhappy students across the country have banded together to Tweet pictures of their unappetizing cafeteria food, blaming the First Lady for such disgustingly healthy fare.

The Thanksgiving-themed lunches seen here must comply with the food regulations implemented by the USDA (a limit on calories, fat, sugar and sodium) and supported by Michelle Obama, who has taken on the sweeping issue of childhood obesity.

Hence the hashtag "#ThanksMichelleObama" that accompanies these complaints/photos.

In July, Obama vowed to “fight until the bitter end to make sure that every kid in this country continues to have the best nutrition that they can have."

She didn't direct folks to healthy recipes on Food Fanatic for some reason, but she did get behind an initiative to change the ingredients used in cafeterias around the nation.

Still, we wonder whether or not Obama realized she'd be fighting the kids themselves.

For the past six months Lindsay Lohan has been living in London, performing in a West End production of Speed the Plow.

Judging from the pics of Lindsay stumbling all over Europe drunk, she seems to be having the time of her life across the pond. Even so, sources say she's getting homesick and eager to return to the States.

Sure, she wants to see her family, re-connect with friends and blah, blah, blah, but apparently the main reason Linds is eager to get back to Hollywood is so that she can get back on the A-list!

Lindsay Lohan and Rick Ross

That's LiLo hanging out with Rick Ross in a London club, where she supposedly "partied sober." (Fun fact: on Instagram she accidentally tagged Ross as one of Ariana Grande's backup dancers. Sounds like the act of a sober person to us!)

Taylor Swift covers the latest issue of Lucky, opening up to the magazine about a number of personal issues.

Like dating, coffee and whether or not she has a belly button.

Taylor Swift Lucky Cover

"I really used to think that happily ever after was a thing," Swift admits to the publication. "I used to believe that you find the one and that's it: Nothing's difficult after that."

But Taylor has sadly grown more cynical as so many of her high-profile relationships have flamed out, now telling Lucky she knows I "legitimately nothing about lasting relationship experiences because I don't have them."

Awwww! Sad face! At least Swift will always have her cat.
