This totally grosses us out. Not only was Josh Duggar investigated for molesting at least five girls back in 2006 (some of whom were reported to be his younger sisters), but just two years later he cracked a joke about incest on an episode of his family's reality show, 19 Kids and Counting.
In the clip, Duggar talks about going on a date with then-fiancee Anna Duggar, and how the family rules require then to have a chaperone, as they were not yet married. Josh's siblings Jana and John David Duggar ended up accompanying him, and during his interview he said, "We chose Jana and John David – we thought why not, have a double date ... We are from Arkansas, no?"
The other day In Touch Weekly obtained a copy of a police report that shows Duggar was investigated for multiple sex offenses against five underage girls, some of whom may have been his younger sisters. The reports, which were hidden since 2006, show that Duggar confessed to his father, Jim Bob Duggar, who then waited over than a year to contact police about the incident.
Josh said in a statement on Thursday, "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God's grace, mercy and redemption."
He should be asking the public to forgive him too, because we think he's a pretty despicable person! On Friday it was confirmed that TLC removed 19 Kids and Counting from the air.

We love how Gigi Hadid strategically put pal Hailey Baldwin next to Lewis Hamilton -- but we know what's really going on here!
Over the weekend the blonde supermodel supported her new man at the Monaco Grand Prix, and she posted the shot above, along with a few more from the race. "Crew Love 🏁 GO HAM @lewishamilton ... We love you @lewishamilton. Everyone knows you da champ. #TEAMLH," she wrote.
Gigi, 19, and Lewis, 30, were photographed getting quite cozy at the Cinema Against AIDS gala for amfAR at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on Thursday evening, and after Lewis lost the Grand Prix he wrapped his arms around Gigi and posed for pics. Gigi just confirmed her split from Cody Simpson earlier this month, and a source told told the Daily Mail, "[Gigi and Lewis have] been on a couple of dates. It's on!" She moves fast! And that would also explain why she hasn't looked so bummed in the weeks after her breakup...
Gigi was joined by sister Bella Hadid, along with girlfriends Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Of course, 17-year-old Kylie was there ripping selfies with her own much older beau too, but she made sure the ladies had plenty of girl time later:

Not even a stint in rehab is going to keep troubled reality star Kim Richards away from her daughter's Cabo wedding!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star left rehab to attend her daughter Brooke's beach wedding in Cabo, Mexico. That's all great -- we just hope Kim goes back to rehab after!
Kim's niece Paris Hilton, who was one of 10 bridesmaids, caught the whole blush-toned bridal party on camera.
Along with Paris, Kim's other niece, Nicky Hilton, and her estranged sister Kyle were also featured in the glamorous snap.
"Love my gorgeous family!! #WiederWedding," Paris captioned one shot.
While many family members were present, Brooke's father Monty Brinson could not be there. Her father has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, so he was unable to make the trip. However, Monty posted a congrats on Instagram earlier in the week, in which he wrote, "My daughter is getting married on Saturday, her dream wedding on the beaches of Cabo."

While Justin Bieber isn't the tallest celeb in Tinseltown, keep in mind that he's rolling with a pair of 6'9" dudes in the pic above!
On Sunday Biebs and close pal Kevin Durant went shopping at Barneys New York, and we imagine it was quite comical to watch the pop singer and the NBA superstar picking out clothes together. I mean, Kevin wears a size 17 shoe and last we checked Biebs, who is somewhere around 5'9", is just a 7.5!
Over the weekend the boys posted a video of Biebs shooting Durant with a nerf gun (the post has since gone missing from social media), but apparently Bieber reveals why Durant is his fav target. "Cuz he's giant," the pop star says. Boys will be boys, even if they're famous millionaires...
We snagged the video that Bieber removed from Instagram -- check it out ...

They're coming home!
After six-year battle, Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford is finally bringing home her two children back to the United States. On Friday, a judge granted the 46-year-old actress sole custody of her two children who have been living in France and Monaco with their father, Daniel Giersch, since 2012.
The California ruling is temporary as Rutherford waits to see if it will hold up to Monaco's standards. While the news is good for the actress, the temporary ruling only gives Kelly the right to bring her children back to the U.S. (which she could not do) during the custody battle proceedings.
Kelly started warring with her ex back in 2010 when the pair divorced. In 2012, the famous mom lost residential custody of her two young children, as a judge has ruled that her ex could keep their kids in France, where he resided. In December 2013, a judge determined that Giersch didn't have to pay for Hermes and Helena to visit her in America. Rutherford has spoken of her battle publicly and subsequently created the Children's Justice Campaign to help other parents in her situation.
In April, the star went on Good Morning America and spoke about her fight. "I know it's not right. Parents know — everyone knows it's not right." She continued, "I can sit her and tell you how often I cry. I can tell you how it feels to leave my kids in a foreign country and seeing them after not seeing them for weeks on end. Not being able to bring them from school and pick them up from school, dress them, hug them, smell them."
We're happy for Kelly and hope she gets to keep those kids of her stateside!

Kim Kardashian's marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries may have lasted just 72 days, but the third time is the charm, apparently!
Kim and Kanye West are currently celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary, and what better way to do it than to post all sorts of throwback photos?
Kim posted one shot of her smooching her rapper hubby and wrote, "I love this man so much! Happy Anniversary baby!" along with a few more of them in Paris before their nuptials last year. Well, if your idea of smooching is what they're doing in the shot above...ick!

Friendly exes? Not so much! Former spouses Katy Perry and Russell Brand are anything but friends.
Everyone remembers Rusesell Brand's infamous text telling Katy Perry that he filed for a divorce. But it appears as those the fallen lovebirds havent spoken since that fateful day back in December 2011. In a new interview with the Daily Telegraph, KP revealed that she and the funny man have never patched things up and have never talked again.
"He hasn’t spoken to me since he texted me saying he was filing for divorce," she said. "I don’t want to talk about him — my songs will say what I need to say."
While the 30-year-old singer may have lost a husband in the divorce, she did get to keep a cat. The twosome got a cat that they named Rusty (a combo of both of their first names) and the "Roar" singer kept it but admit she updated the feline's name after the split.
"I still have the cat ... But I’ve changed her name to Monkey," said the singer.
After a whirlwind romance, the pair married in 2010 in an over-the-top wedding in India.

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are giving it another go!
Amid reports the couple had split after three years of dating, it appears they're back together and were enjoying domestic bliss at a Beverly Hills supermarket, on Saturday. Stocking up for the Memorial Day weekend, one would assume they're shacking up if they're grocery shopping together.
People magazine reported Andrew, 31 and Emma, 26, are back on, according to their source: "Emma and Andrew are a great couple who have been apart for work. They are still seeing each other. Nothing major happened between them while he was away other than a long and forced separation. Andrew has been incredibly busy and so has Emma. But the sparks are still there."
The source says the pair are living at Stone's Hollywood Hills home.
