'Little Couple' -- Duggar Scandal Has TLC Stars on Silent Mode (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

TLC has clearly put a muzzle on its stable of stars, because mere mention of the Duggar molestation scandal sends its celebs -- big and small -- running for cover. 

Our photog spotted the stars of "The Little Couple" in NYC and tried asking about the story, but the TLC handler was having none of it.

Fact is ... it's a wise move for the stars of the other shows to stay mum and watch how it all plays out.
