RadarOnline.com has previously introduced you to the skeletons in the closet of The 19 Kids and Counting Duggar family. And although the conservative Christian clan shows the world a happy face, a shocking feud between sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar recently heated up. What other secrets are being revealed about the Duggar girls and their extended female family members? Check out RadarOnline.com’s guide to the sisters’ scandals.
Black Sheep?: In the latest surprise from the holier than thou Duggars, Susanna Keller, who is the sister of Josh Duggar’s wife, Anna, was shunned after being an honorary Duggar sister (she spent months with the family as a teen). RadarOnline.com exclusively reported sources said the break came because Keller had a child out of wedlock in 2013, which disturbed the fundamentalist Christians.
Sister Act: Although an insider told RadarOnline.com that Anna and Josh Duggar spent Thanksgiving 2014 with her sister Susanna, her nearly 2-year-old illegitimate daughter Noelle and the Keller clan in Florida, there was tension between the two sisters. When single working mom Susanna planned a date with a divorced man while visiting her hometown, sources said, Anna flipped her lid. “She begged Susanna not to go, and even tried to pay her to cancel the date!” an insider told RadarOnline.com.
Tebow-ing: Eldest Duggar daughter Jana, 24, has seen her younger sisters Jessa, 22, and Jill, 23, leave the family home to get married. But RadarOnline.com reported that Jana could be next as Star magazine learned that Jana’s dad Jim Bob has his sights set on NFL player Tim Tebow to be Jana’s groom. A source told Star he and Michelle have had secret meetings in Arkansas with Tebow’s mom! However, a rep for Tebow told E! News that the two young Christians “have never even met.”
Big Apple Bites: Though sassy Jinger Duggar hinted she'd like to move to NYC, her mom Michelle quickly quashed her plan for big city life, saying, "New York City is way above what we would ever consider a city where she should move!"
Cinderella: As RadarOnline.com has reported, eldest Duggar daughter Jana has admitted that she sometimes resents having to take care of her siblings. “For the past few months, I've just been really struggling with my attitude toward different family members,” she admitted in 2010. "I really need to love my family … I've asked the Lord to help me… because it's not a one-time thing." Meanwhile, younger sisters Jill and Jessa have beat her to the altar.
Bunk Bed Brawl: Jana has discussed her difficult relationship with her sister Jessa during their younger years, even recalling that Jessa, who was on the bottom of their bunk bed, would kick her bed throughout the night and laugh at her when she got upset. Mom Michelle advised Jana to kill Jessa with kindness. Jana said she tearfully gave away her favorite jewelry box filled with candy and other trinkets to Jessa.
Jessa’s Lament: Jessa acknowledged to Penn Live earlier this year that her relations with her siblings haven’t always been perfect. She said, “People always ask us ‘Do you have any problems? Do you all ever fight? Are you normal?’ Yes, we are.”

Jessa Vs. Jill: A source told OK! magazine that Jessa was having a bit of a Jan Brady moment, because she’s tired of hearing “Jill, Jill, Jill.” The source told OK! that there’s been rivalry because Jessa was dating her now-husband Ben Seewald six months before Jill started dating Derick Dillard, yet Jill got married first. “Jessa is envious that Jill was the first Duggar daughter to get married,” the insider told OK! “All the attention surrounding Jill’s wedding was really getting under Jessa’s skin.”
Pregnancy Race: According to OK! Magazine, Jessa is jealous that sister Jill is pregnant already -- and prays to show her own positive pregnancy to her husband Ben ASAP.
Sisters’ Rift: As RadarOnline.com has reported, the reality TV Duggar family’s Twitter accounts were hiding clues to a potential schism between Jill and Jessa. Recently, Jill followed most of the family on the social media site but wasn’t following her fellow newlywed sister or her husband, Ben Seewald. Finally, Jill began following both of them before Christmas 2014.
Jill’s Courtship Jail: Despite admitting that they got a little hands-on when they were courting, Jim Bob and Michelle weren’t taking any chances when daughter Jill was getting to know her future husband Derick Dillard. As RadarOnline.com has reported the young couple was only permitted a “side hug” and the protective parents even sat in on Jill and Derick’s online chats.
