Michelle Duggar: Why I Don’t Wear Bikinis

Michelle Duggar Why I Don't Wear BikinisOn a recent marriage retreat to Puerto Rico filmed for their reality show, TLC’s 19 Kids & Counting, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar decided to go snorkeling. But not in typical bathing suits.

‘Cover up’

“In society, sometimes there’s this idea that we cover up at certain times and then we go to the beach and wear our underclothes,” Michelle tells PEOPLE. “Bathing suits are pretty and colorful but it’s not our thinking that it is okay to be naked some places and not other places.”

‘To keep our hearts pure’

The solution is to find something “I feel comfortable in,” Michelle says. “I am not feeling exposed in the ways I am uncomfortable with.” For the trip, which airs Tuesday (9 p.m. ET) on TLC, that meant covering up in swimwear by WholesomeWear.com.

“The eyes are the windows to the soul,” Michelle says. “And we are trying to keep our hearts pure, which is a struggle. Everyone has their idea of what is modest, but for our family, we try to avoid situations … like the public beach or swimming pools that can make it a challenge to keep our minds pure.”

How about your — what is your idea of modest? Do you agree or disagree with Michelle Duggar?

‘Real Chance Of Love’ Star Battling Stage 4 Cancer

'Real Chance Of Love' Star Battling Stage 4 CancerOne of the guys from the VH1 reality show “Real Chance of Love” has been diagnosed with STAGE FOUR colon cancer … and is hospitalized while doctors come up with a strategy to attack the disease.

‘He thought was the flu’

TMZ has learned Real … real name Ahmad Givens … is getting treatment at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Beverly Hills.

A rep for Real — who starred with his brother on the popular dating show ‘Real Chance’ — tells TMZ he first got sick in January with what he thought was the flu.

‘Stage four’

We’re told 33-year-old Real went back to the hospital at least 4 times and was initially told something was wrong with his liver — but last week doctors informed him it was colon cancer. Stage four generally means the cancer has spread to other parts of the body.

We’re told the rapper-turned-reality-star will remain hospitalized at least until docs figure out what kind of treatment — chemotherapy, radiation, or both — he will require.

If you were to be diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer today, what would you do? Do you admire people who strive to fight for life despite being diagnosed with a serious illness? Feel free to express your thoughts, opinions, and well wishes for Real via the comment box below!

NBC Fires Back At Sharon Osbourne Over Discrimination Claims

NBC is lashing back at Sharon Osbourne … claiming she was DEAD WRONG when she insisted the network fired her son from a reality show because he was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Sharon had told the media she was quitting her gig on “America’s Got Talent” because NBC had “discriminated” against Jack Osbourne by dropping him from an upcoming reality show called, “Stars Earn Stripes” … in which celebrities compete in various military-style physical challenges. And to make matters worse, Sharon had claimed Jack was notified by e-mail … just two days before production was set to begin.

But NBC claims Sharon is blowing the whole thing out of of proportion — but admits the network decided to NOT ask Jack to participate as a contestant after going through vigorous medical screening.

NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt explains, “We hold medical information in strict confidence and therefore cannot comment specifically about Jack, but as a company that cares deeply about the health and safety of everyone on our shows — especially one like ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ that requires dangerous water stunts, strenuous physical activity, and uses live ammunition — we required all potential participants to undergo medical vetting to ensure that they could safely participate.”

Do you think Sharon Osbourne just got it all wrong? Was NBC right to NOT ask Jack to participate in the reality show?

Steven Tyler To Quit ‘American Idol

Steven Tyler is going back to his day job. After two seasons as a judge on American Idol, the Aerosmith frontman says he won’t be returning to the reality show and will, instead, be focusing once again on his band.

“After some long … hard … thoughts … I’ve decided it’s time for me to let go of my mistress American Idol before she boils my rabbit,” the rocker said in a statement Thursday. “I strayed from my first love, Aerosmith, and I’m back – but instead of begging on my hands and knees, I got two fists in the air and I’m kicking the door open with my band.”

Tyler’s announcement comes amid continued chatter that Jennifer Lopez will not be returning to the popular Fox show. “I am thinking that it’s time for me to go,” she recently said about tackling a third season.

In making his departure announcement, Tyler also reveals that Aerosmith is releasing a new album on Nov. 6. And he feels revitalized: ”The next few years are going to be dedicated to kicking some serious ass,” he says in his statement. “Idol was over-the-top fun, and I loved every minute of it. … Now it’s time to bring rock back.” And his decision is supported by Idol‘s producers.
