There are still two weeks until the publication of Jinger Duggar’s first memoir.
But in a series of events strikingly similar to what happened in Prince Harry’s recent literary debut, Ginger’s tell-all story appears to have leaked ahead of the book’s release date.
(Yes, this is probably the only time Ginger is compared to the Duke of Sussex.)
But Harry’s book shocked millions with revelations about the royal family, and Ginger’s memoir was labeled a disappointment, as her scandalous family seemed to get off easy. , so the similarities end there.
Fans hoping for a scathing recoil of the cult vibe Ginger grew up with may be bitterly disappointed.
In fact, Ginger seems more concerned with lobbing grenades at the media that exposed his family’s abuse than criticizing the darker side of life within the Duggar clan.
Early in the book, Ginger recalls the night he first saw the 1998 Jim Carrey movie truman show With husband Jeremy Vuolo.
“You probably already know that The Truman Show is about the ultimate fishbowl. The main character, Truman Burbank, is a reality TV star, but he doesn’t know it,” she wrote.
“Every moment of his life is captured on television. Many people in the outside world have opinions and expectations of who Truman should be and how he should live,” Ginger said. continues.
“When Truman begins to question his reality and attempts to escape Seahaven, his escape is thwarted at every turn.
“After the movie ended, I turned to Jeremy and said, ‘That movie is my life.’ Well, except for the part about choosing a spouse.
The anecdote in the first chapter seems to set the tone for the rest of the book.
Ginger is mad at the media for being forced to live a fishbowl life, but he feels no animosity towards his father, who sold his family’s privacy to a team of reality TV producers.
Many feel that Ginger is putting the blame on all the wrong parties.
And they believe that by focusing the story on the media intruding into her life, she is creating new villains to distract from the culture of abuse that existed within her family.
It’s been just over a year since Josh Duggar was convicted of child pornography and sentenced to 151 months in prison.
It’s arguably the biggest scandal in reality show history, and fans want Ginger’s insight into what happened and how her family was affected.
However, she seems more interested in talking about her religious beliefs. the truman showExperience like being a young reality star.
That’s her prerogative, of course, but she should prepare for some serious backlash from disappointed readers.
