The Dugger Family's Medical Emergency

The Dugger Family's Medical Emergency

Oh no!

After putting Josie Dugger's life in danger, TLC might have to change the name of their hit show, 18 Kids and Counting, to 17 Kids and Depleting.

The youngest child of the 21 member Dugger family has reportedly suffered some serious medical problems while shooting over seas in Israel.

Little Josie was born pre maturely and is prone to sickness. Our source close to the family says the Dugger's 3 week long vaca/shoot put the tot at risk.

The source close to the family said:

“Josie has had serious breathing issues since her premature birth. While the Duggars are a loving family who adore their children, they are defi­nitely risking Josie’s life by traveling all over the world. It seems like they are putting the show before their child’s health. Jim Bob and Michelle need to put their chil­dren first, before media attention and money.”

This seems out of character for the Arkansas-based, evangelical Christian family. But who knows what the truth is?

Money and fame can do weird things to people, just ask John Gosselin!

Good work, Dee!

Dee Snider, the lead singer of Twister Sister, joined the March of Dimes for his 9th annual Bikers for Babies Ride at Nickerson Beach Park in Nassau County, New York this past weekend.

Over 2,000 bikers showed up and rode the 60 minute, 45-mile long route for the fight against premature birth, with which Dee himself has been personally affected. Two of his four children were born prematurely.

Dee, who also performed at the event, said:

"I'm honored to be a part of these events and proud of their success in raising funds to fight premature birth."

You're doing amazing work, Dee! Fight the good fight!
