Michelle Duggar Does A Memorial Video Tribute To Her Daughter

I was conflicted about whether to post this video, for a number of reasons, one was I have some personal prejudices about the Duggars and their lifestyle choices, however that does not mean that I think that the loss of their latest child should be one that should be mocked.

However I do question her need to continue to get pregnant particularly as her last viable pregnancy resulted in a premmie baby and the loss of this one must indicate that her body or at least her uterus has had enough.

Is she continuing to have babies because of the reality show 20 Kids and Counting  and the resulting publicity her pregnancies receive or is it because of religious reasons?

Either way I felt uncomfortable listening to her some of her words in her memorial video above to Jubilee Shalom Duggar. Some things she say are from the heart, others I felt was being mildly critical and judgemental of other peoples reasons for having kids or their feelings about them.

Also is this memorial all to public? But then maybe the Duggar fans are also grieving.

However I will say it is a lovely photo and moving.

If you comment please be aware some readers may have lost babies or suffered miscarriages so might be particularly sensitive to this issue.

Excess Baggage On Channel Nine – The Promo

Channel Nine’s answer to The Biggest Loser but with celebrities will be shown early in the ratings series. I hope it is not going to go head to head with Loser, as people will have weight loss overload in the one night.

The show will be hosted by Kate Cebrano and each celebrity his partnered with an overweight non-celebrity. I presume there will be some cracker back stories to these people.

Here is one of the promos – Who else thinks Ajay Rochester is channelling Bo Derek from Ten?

As you can see the celebrities are  Kevin Federline, Christine Anu, Kate DeAraugo, Gaby Millgate, Darryn Lyons, Brant Webb, Ajay Rochester and Robert “Dipper” DiPierdomenico.

No news on an exact start date for Excess Baggage on Channel Nine.

The Biggest Loser 2012 – The Promo

The Biggest Loser will kick off the reality TV year for Channel Ten and this year it is all singles or as I am calling it The Biggest Loser – ‘Fatties and Fornication’ season. This year all the contestants are single, so hopefully there will be some romance in the house.

In fact if you know of any romances contact me….

Michelle,24, already is attractive so after she loses some weight she is going to be a stunner. All four trainers will be back this season with Tiffany Hall again joining Michelle Bridges, Shannon Ponton and Commando to make them work up a sweat.

No news yet on an actual premiere date.
