I watch it just to see if the brainwashing is done with or not. Seriously, I believe in the good old Christian values, but even the bible gives reason for divorce.

I saw the first part but missed the second installment.  Honestly, I thought it was awkward as hell and edited terribly …and does anyone else feel SUPER creeped out by Derick Dilard? I was cringing so badly when he was telling Ben all the “secrets” of fatherhood.  Every time he speaks it’s like he’s reading something off of a script, with Jill just staring up at him as if to be like “Don’t say anything wrong or you’re in for it!”  I much prefer Jessa and Ben–they seem more in tune with the world outside of the Duggar clan, but that’s not saying much.

I don’t think I’ll be able to stomach watching the interview with Anna…

No. There are disgusting people everywhere, I don’t see why this family is so special.

I can’t feed the exploitation money machine by watching. It’s abhorrent that these people are still on the air. What a sick world we live in. Ugh.

I’m watching it and wonder why Anna didnt go home to her family. I wonder if its because they dont support them reconciling after his counciling. I feel so bad for her. I’ve been cheated on and got divorced and cannot imagine how difficult it must be for her who was brainwashed into this situation to have the rug pulled out of her feet.

 

I cant stand to listen to Jill talk. She says “Like” after every other word. Its maddening. I counted and during the talk about Jessa being nervous about birth she said it 8 times in 2 sentences. Its 2015 – we stopped doing that a like long time ago like duh.

gapeachy:  I recall the brother being mad and saying to leave him but I couldnt recall if the parents had spoken publically.  I support her brothers opinion 100% He deserves it and it might teach him a thing or two.

59jeepzj:  I don’t believe her parents have spoken publically, but in his post (I was SHOCKED that someone in that family even knew those words) he alluded to the fact that they were trying to get her to stay. I have 4 brothers and granted I’m now in my 40s, if my husband tried that mess, dealing with me, however horrible would pale in comparison to what would happen after I called my brothers.

59jeepzj:  to be fair, I think the brother who said that has moved away from their religion somewhat. I have a feeling the rest of her family are as bad as the Duggars and would want her to stay no matter what.

turtletime03:  AGHHHHHHHHHHH. The Duggars. 

Poor Anna. She is SO brainwashed. There is NO WAY in hell she really wants to stay with Mr. Child Molester/Porn Addict. NO FREAKING WAY. But because she has ZERO education and ZERO job experience and four little kids, she is totally stuck. I cringed when she said that she made a vow to him “for better or for worse” and shes sticking to that. UM – what?! HE broke that vow, clearly so why should you stick by him? Makes me so sad shes married to a creepy mccreeperson who’s possibly a pedophile. Secretly, I hope she moved in with the Duggars to do the special and is taking the money from that and is RUNNING. 

As for Jill and Jessa… I’m just sad for them. They’re so brainwashed too and just…clueless. Ben is what, like 19? They are so young and there’s so much more they could be doing with their lives like going to school, working (DOES ANYONE WORK IN THIS FAMILY?), etc. It makes me sad that theyve been taught there is no other life other then being a wife and mother.

turtletime03:  I hate/snark watch …:-( can’t help it

1. These people, scandals aside, are BORING!!!!! 

2. Anna, will never leave. I hope Josh says fuck it and leaves her. She will get child support and likely alimony and maybe she can find a nice fundie guy who doesn’t cheat on her with hookers. Then write a tell all

3. Jill is quite possibly the dumbest human being on earth.

I’m watching this now. Seriously though, as PP said, do any of these people work?! The women are married and then have children as quickly as possible, and as many as possible, don’t go to college or university.  What do Derrick and Ben do??

Anna is stuck – no job, no education, 4 little kids. Not sure why she didn’t take her brother up on his offer, maybe because she’s brainwashed? She married a douchebag without really knowing him probably (how much can you really get to know someone when you are NEVER EVER alone before marriage?!). I’m confused as to why she’s still wearing her rings though?? I’d be taking those off and flinging them in Josh’s face. Ugh can you tell he pisses me off? Haha

Jill bugs me with the way she speaks! Can’t stand all the weird pauses and “um” and “like”s.

Oh mercy no, these people need to go away. They are a cult and their hypocrisy is catching up with them. Watching them gives their advertisers a reason to pay them. I do not want to indirectly fund that.
