Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar Schedule First Post-Scandal Interview with Megyn Kelly

In the wake of the recent Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal, one might expect Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar to quietly slink out of the public eye and spend the rest of their god-given lives hiding under a big fat rock. But no! Instead, the 19 Kids and Counting stars have scheduled a big fat interview with none other than Megyn Kelly on Fox News (who/where else?!).

The Duggars announced the exclusive interview on their blog today:

Next week we will sit down with Megyn Kelly on Fox News 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. We appreciate the outpouring of love and prayers for our family at this time.

Naturally everybody's hoping this trainwreck sitdown will be some incredibly revealing affair and that Jim Bob and Michelle will break down and sob and admit they handled the Josh situation all wrong and also that they take back all the anti-women and LGBT things they've ever said and also maybe tearfully announce that all of their children are now allowed to choose names that don't begin with the letter "J" (if they so choose). But is any of that really going to happen? (Especially when they're going to be interviewed by the woman who insisted on telling children, via her TV show, that Santa is a white man??)

More from The Stir: Did the Duggars' Harsh Discipline Lead to Josh's Molestation Scandal? 

I doubt it. I doubt it a lot. I'm thinking there's gonna be lots of talk about how God forgives and we should too and nobody's perfect and sin and penance -- and very little admission of actual guilt. But who knows? 

The interview will air on this Wednesday's episode of The Kelly File (Wednesday, June 3, 9 p.m. ET), so we don't have to wait long to find out. Let's just hope the conversation doesn't take some weird, white-Santa turn. 

What do you expect from Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's interview with Megyn Kelly?
