'19 Kids and Counting' news: Duggars still subjected to hate despite TV comeback


Despite a roller coaster 2015 for the Duggar family, they are slowly getting up with TLC resigning the family for their popular reality TV series “19 Kids and Counting.”

The family was rocked by many controversies such as eldest child Josh’s old molestation case, numerous accounts in cheating website Ashley Madison, and most recently, a lawsuit against him filed by adult film star Danic Dillon worth $500,000 where she accused Josh of assault. The case was then dropped earlier this month with Dillon not being granted the option to re-file it in the future.

Entertainment Tonight reported that the two have been trying to rekindle their relationship via writing love letters to each other. Just last year, Anna has taken it to Duggar’s official website to share how she is coping with the current situation.

“Many have asked how I am doing. So many have asked that its actually humbling and touching,” she wrote. “2015 was the most difficult year of my life. Yet, amazingly I’ve found that in my own life crisis God has drawn near to me (‘He’s near to the brokenhearted’ Psalms 34:18) and my faith has been more precious to me than ever before,” she wrote.

The media outlet also reported that despite TLC backing the Duggars, “there is a lot of hate regarding the family. After all that has happened, this isn’t the same family in many people’s eyes,” quoting their source.

As previously reported, “19 Kids and Counting” maybe having a reformat, shifting its focus to Jana Duggar instead of the whole family

“I’m sure there will be more girls courting soon,” the source added in reference to the other Duggar girls like Jessa and Jill.

Inquistr added that for several months now, the film has already been rolling, following the family around. However, it is still unknown if it will be for a long running series or a series of spin-offs like what TLC aired last December with “Jill and Jessa; Counting On” which racked over three million viewers.
