Michelle & Jim Bob Duggar to Open Up About Josh Duggar Molestation Scandal on Fox News

by at .

It's been over a week since news of the Josh Duggar sexual abuse charges was made public, and the usually outspoken 19 Kids and Counting clan has been uncharacteristically quiet ever since.

Both Josh and his parents issued public statements shortly after the accusations were revealed, but many of their fans and critics believe the responses were woefully inadequate.

Josh admitted to acting "inexcusably," but seemed more concerned with rescuing his public image than apologizing to his victims.

Michelle and Jim Bob's statement to People magazine was regarded as similarly vague and self-serving, and many have called for the parents to be held accountable for their role in helping to bury the allegations for over a decade.

Now it looks as though those critics may get their wish, as it was announced today that Michelle and Jim Bob will sit down with Fox News' Megyn Kelly to offer their views on the scandal.

In a press release issued this morning, Michelle Duggar stated that she and Jim Bob will appear on The Kelly File in order to "share our hearts with you about the pain that we walked through as a family twelve years ago, the tears we all shed and the forgiveness that was given."

Many are viewing the interview as part of a last-ditch effort by the Duggars to save the series that made their family famous.

Many industry insiders have stated that they believe TLC will cancel 19 Kids and Counting, but no official announcement has been made as of yet.

The first portion of Michelle and Jim Bob's interview will air on June 3 at 9 pm, with "additional footage" filmed at the family's Arkansas home scheduled for June 5.
