Josh Duggar isn't in the good graces of the 19 Kids and Counting family right now. At least that's what OK magazine reports. It seems as Josh and Anna Duggar are starting to unpack at their Arkansas home, the rest of the family is giving him the cold shoulder.

Sure, they've all prayed for and forgiven Josh Duggar for sexually molesting five underage girls--four of whom are his sisters--but when push comes to shove he is costing them a boat load of money. He might even have cost them their most lucrative source of income--their TV show.

“Josh is the reason the gravy train came to a screeching halt,” a source tells OK. “He’s ruined their main source of income, and they’re furious.”

The source also said that when Anna and Josh Duggar, along with their three children, arrived back in Arkansas last week, that none of the 19 Kids and Counting family members showed up to help unload and unpack the moving trucks. Kate Gosselin's bodyguard, Steve Neild, was hired by TLC to assist the family with keeping the paparazzi at bay.

Anna Duggar is expecting a baby in a matter of weeks. Did Jill Duggar Dillard, Jessa Duggar Seewald, or even Jana and Jinger Duggar--all purportedly Josh Duggar's sexual molestation victims--come to her aid?

No.

“Anna is due to give birth to their fourth child in less than a month, and she needed helping hands more than ever,” the source said. “But the family abandoned them, all saying they were ‘too busy.’”

In fact, OK reports they've been told Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald are angrier than the rest.

“They were becoming the superstars of the family,” the source said. “They’re devastated--and terribly resentful of Josh.”

Josh Duggar has no job and he supposedly has no family support.

How will he and his family survive back home in Arkansas without one or both of these important things?

Do you think the 19 Kids and Counting family is really ostracizing Josh Duggar, or might they simply be trying to make it look that way so that they can distance themselves from him in the public eye, and try to salvage their reality show?
