Famed Nevada Brothel Bans Embattled Reality Star Josh Duggar From Entry, Citing Concerns For Safety Of Their Legal Prostitutes

CARSON CITY, Nev., June 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The world famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch, famed legal brothel that has been featured on HBO's smash hit series "Cathouse", has taken the extraordinary step of banning TLC's "19 And Counting" star Josh Duggar from entering any of their properties, citing concerns for the safety of the 500 legal prostitutes that are employed there. Duggar has recently become embattled in a firestorm of controversy over his admission that he sexually molested five girls, including two of his younger sisters, when he was 15. One of the sisters was 5 at the time that the assault occurred.
"My number one priority has got to be the safety of my girls," said Dennis Hof, owner of the world famous Bunny Ranch and six other Nevada brothels. "We employ 500 girls at any one time, and we've had tens of thousands of them come and go over the years. With the Duggars having 19 kids, it is just simple math that the odds are much greater than usual that one of their daughters might come work for us at some point. There's no way I would ever put them or any other girl in harm's way, should that brother of theirs come prowling around here. He's persona non grata, starting now."
This isn't the first time that Hof has banned a scandalous celebrity from his brothels. Duggar will join the dubious ranks of dog fighter and convicted felon Michael Vick, former L.A. Clippers' owner Donald Sterling, Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson, and Paris Hilton. All have raised the ire of Hof for animal cruelty, racism or homophobia. For Hof, pedophilia is far beyond the pale.
"Those poor girls (the Duggar sisters) were propped up on television by their Bible thumping parents to make excuses for their brother, saying that their mother and father had protected them after they became aware of the molestations by putting locks on the girls' doors. We don't have locks on our girls' doors, because we've never needed them. Apparently the Bunny Ranch brothel is a safer place for young girls than the Duggar household."
Dennis Hof's autobiography, "The Art Of The Pimp", was released earlier this year to critical acclaim.
