Amy Duggar is still furious at her cousin, Josh Duggar, after he admitted to cheating on his wife, Anna. According to People Magazine, Amy Duggar — who got married last weekend — admitted that she and her husband, Dillon King, thought about eloping after hearing the news. Not only was the attention a little too much for Amy’s liking, but she revealed that Josh was slated to emcee part of the couple’s reception.
Knowing that Josh wouldn’t be welcome at the wedding, Amy and Dillon had a fairly big decision to make.
“We’re still shocked and furious to the extreme. Let’s let him be gone. Let’s let him get as much help as possible. We almost eloped. We thought about it so hard. We didn’t want attention to be about what happened,” she said.
Amy Duggar and Dillon King already sent out their invitations, and with about 400 guests excited to celebrate the couple’s union, the two decided to have their wedding as planned — minus Josh, of course.
“I think she would have always regretted that. I told her don’t worry about all this other going on. That has nothing to do with us … I’m glad she had her beautiful, fairytale dream wedding,” said Amy’s mother, Deanna Duggar-Jordan.
And Amy isn’t the only Duggar family member upset with Josh at the moment. According to Perez Hilton, a source said that some of the Duggars want nothing more than for Josh Duggar to stay away from Anna and the couple’s four children.
“They’re very angry. They want her and the kids to get away from him. They would really like him to just disappear,” the source said.
Josh is undergoing treatment at Reformers Unanimous facility in Rockford, Illinois. The 19 Kids And Counting star checked into rehab back in August. An earlier report by People Magazine highlighted what life in rehab looks like for Josh, who is said to be “treating addiction in a biblical way.”
“Reformers can treat up to 40 men at once. Patients are placed two to a room, each with a shared closet, bunk bed and two desks. There’s no email, no cell phones and little television. The patients can watch approved TV shows on Saturdays and Sundays, and there is a game room for free time. Mornings begin early, and lights out is at 10 p.m. on weekdays and 11 p.m. on weekends.”
Amy Duggar, meanwhile, is thrilled to have a new last name (she has changed it to King), and to further disassociate herself with these never-ending scandals.
