Jill & Jessa Duggar Confirm They Were Their Brother's Victims

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar may have gotten a chance to tell their side of the story to Megyn Kelly on Wednesday, but it's Friday's interview that we're really looking forward to. That's when the Fox News host will talk with two of Josh's self-proclaimed victims -- his sisters Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald.

Ever since the 33-page sealed police report was leaked to the paparazzi, we've known that Josh Duggar allegedly molested some of his sisters, since four of his five victims listed Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar as their parents.

However, there were five Duggar sisters in total in 2002, which means that at least one of them wasn't touched. That doesn't offer much privacy, but at least we knew that anyone of them could've been the one who got passed over for whatever reason.

But Jill and Jessa have outed themselves, and are coming forward to tell the world what happened from their perspective. We only got a little preview of what the ladies will discuss with Kelly on Friday, but it's obviously going to be emotional.

Jill was crying, and Jessa was very defensive about having to deal with this again, years after the fact. The sisters probably didn't think they'd ever have to think about it again. They both got married last year, and Jill and Derick welcomed Israel David in April, and Jessa and Ben are due in November with their first.

The last thing they should have to be focusing on right now is their brother's crimes from a dozen years ago.

Us Weekly obtained part of the interview, which was pre-recorded on Wednesday. In it, Jessa calls her eldest brother's past actions "very wrong," but also defends him against some of the attacks against him.

"I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or a pedophile or a rapist, some people are saying," Jessa told Kelly. "I'm like, 'That is so overboard and a lie really.' I mean people get mad at me for saying that, but I can say this because I was one of the victims."

Interesting to hear her say that ... I wonder if Jill feels the same way? One thing is for sure -- it's bound to be an interesting interview.

Will you watch Jill and Jessa tell their side of the story?
