These days Michelle Duggar is the very picture of peity and domesticity.
But the mother of twenty’s past isn’t as squeaky clean as you might expect.
Sources say Michelle has cut ties with the family that raised her and is doing her best to distance herself form her upbringing.
But it’s hard to keep anything a secret when your one of reality TV’s mst famous moms…
1. Jim Bob’s Bride
These days, Michelle lives a life of quiet domesticity. But her past wasn’t always quite so peaceful.
2. Michelle the Cheerleader
Michelle was the one who decided her daughters should only wear below-the-knee skirts. Interestingly, she didn’t always follow such a strict dress code herself.
3. She Wore What?!
And it wasn’t just while she was cheerleading that Michelle refused to cover up. “The neighbors used to complain because she would mow the lawn in her bikini and wear short skirts,” a neighbor tells Star magazine.
4. The Rebel
It seems Michelle’s parents were no fans of her fashion sense. “They were always trying to get her to cover up her legs,” says the source. So THAT’S where she gets it!
5. The Protesant Reformation
Michelle has changed so much since marrying Jim Bob that those who knew her growing up say they can hardly believe it. “I’ve seen commercials for the show, but I never in a million years would’ve believed that’s Michelle,” says former classmate Joe Roblee.
6. A Modest Wedding
Of course, Michelle put all that behind her when she met Jim Bob. The two were married on July 21, 1984 after just a few months of dating. But as much as she’s tried to leave her past behind her, reminders of her former life still pop up from time to time.
