    Re: "Jill and Jessa: Counting On" TLC

    They'll pretend that nothing is wrong?

    ABSOLUTELY.

    Remember, these are the SAME molesTEES that sat up and DEFENDED their molesTER on national TV. THEN --- to add insult to injury --- had the brass balls to sit up during that interview and say that if the show WENT, their lives would go on and they'd be OK.

    Yeah.

    RIIIIIIIIIGHT.

    If that WAS the case, then why in the hell are they doing THESE "specials", NOW, AFTER their original show has been cancelled?

    Oh yeah.

    That's right.

    I forgot.

    These two idiots have already commenced to poppin' babies like kernels of corn. And we ALL know that JB ain't ABOUT to come to their financial rescue, since they're married and out from under his jurisdiction, in that sense.

    They've gotta make money somehow. And since being on TV is all they know how to do, as long as Touching Little Children'll play ball with 'em by keeping 'em on the air in whatever permutation they can, that's what said idiots're GONNA do.

    So, Jill gets to add to HER family piggy bank . . .

    And NBDJ gets to have a sizeable bankroll to tuck away for herself, Baby Ben, and the newest 'lil cult member.

    It don't take no Rhodes Scholar to figure this out!

    Oh, and whatcha wanna BET that JB and Big M show up SOMEWHERE in these "specials"?

    I support the girls in coping with their victimization in whatever way makes them feel comfortable. I used to really resent when people told me how I should feel and how I should act after I went through what I went through my ex. I don't necessarily support TLC making more money off the molestation and other situations around Josh. If this was just a show purely about those two girls and their life I would kind of "meh" about it. Not really interested but not really insulted either.

    Dragging Anna in for what I imagine will be the "we forgive and I stand by my man" speech is really capitalizing on Josh's infamy. This isn't about the girls. This is about TLC capitalizing on Josh's perversions.

    i can't help it, I now see those girls as famewh*res no different from the parents with dollar signs in their eyes, addicted to the cameras and bent on remaining in front of them as long as they can. no doubt there will be a competition between the sisters over who can bear the most kids. i don't even think they stop long enough to think about what happened with Josh. they're blinded by fame.

    they all make me sick. i used to tolerate the girls pretty much although i never felt interested enough to be a regular watcher. boring show. but now, i feel active dislike for the sisters.

    I agree with what you've said, causingchaos. PLUS, sadly, I think it's all about THE PUBLIC'S fascination with Josh's perversions, and our appetite to know more. After all, no matter how great TLC's greed is, if there were no audience for it, the show(s) wouldn't be aired.

    I just hope that whoever here watches Jill and Jessa Counting on TLC will keep a list of the sponsors and list them here. I am curious just who will sponsor this mess since so many have said they wouldn't.

    Anna knew her husband molested his sisters. She chose to have kids with him anyhow. She chose to allow him to have access to their children.

    I hope she ends up in the deepest part of hell along with her husband.
    What kind of monster allows her children to be in the same house as a `man' who molested other kids, including his sisters?

    Anna is no victim. She is an enabler.

    Well, she's still in the cult and apparently getting back with her prize of a husband when he gets out of his phony treatment clinic. She had her chance to get away, her brother was screaming to help her, but she stayed within the cult with his and her parents. If her husband was in an actual treatment center, he might have had an opportunity for genuine insight and growth with an understanding of why he was so screwed up. (Though why he would be separated from the many thousands of men who are also addicted to porn and prostitutes just because he's a Duggar? ) But he got nothing in the way of treatment back then, and he's got nothing now, so he is doomed to feeling guilty over acts he never had a chance to understand. Because everything is focused on the religion, pretty much made up by Jim Bob and his male friends. It's sad that children, who know nothing but what their parents tell them, by isolating them from the real world, have to learn to navigate in it when they are grown. I see Josh as a victim in a way, Anna too. I think all these kids are brainwashed. Michelle and Jim Bob have been able to live it up on their backsides. Their version of Christianity is unnatural and immoral.

    Of course I am in the minority but these girls are entitled to deal with with this anyway they feel like! I have no problems with them and wish them luck in the future. As far as the famewhore thing if they are then what are those viewers who eagerly watch and talk about them daily?

    Re: "Jill and Jessa: Counting On" TLC

    Have to admit it was on in our house last night (not my choice!). Aside from any personal feelings I might have about them, I found it all very boring. Those girls aren't interesting to listen to at all. It is as if you know what they are going to say before they say it (besides the frequent use of "um," "like" and "totally").

    And a few inane observations:

    1. Ben Seewald now has Jim Bob hair.
    2. I'm not trying to be mean. I know Derick had oral surgery, but it almost looks like he had a stroke. It certainly doesn't look like the surgery was easy on him.
    3. I don't think Jill is over the original assault by Josh. She can't seem to talk about it without becoming emotional. Meanwhile, Jessa just smiles and dismisses it all with a "yeah."
    4. 20 minutes was all we could take before vowing to never watch this mess again.
