Jim Bob And Michelle Duggar React To Show Cancellation

Jim Bob And Michelle Duggar Covered Up The Molestation

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are probably pissed in private…but in public, they see the cancellation the Duggar family’s reality series, 19 Kids and Counting, as a blessing.

The family made a statement on their website today, and it is VERY positive, sugar coated and you know, Christian:

“With God’s grace and help Josh, our daughters and our entire family overcame a terrible situation, found healing and a way forward. We are so pleased with the wonderful adults they have all become. It is our prayer that the painful situation our family went through many years ago can point people toward faith in God and help others who also have lived through similar dark situations to find help, hope and healing, as well.”

The Duggars also say they’re forever changed by their family’s time in the spotlight.

“Years ago, when we were asked to film our first one hour documentary about the logistics of raising 14 children, we felt that it was an opportunity to share with the world that children are a blessing and a gift from God. . . .We appreciate the love, support, prayers and kindness extended to us by many of you,” they added. “You have deeply touched our hearts and encouraged us, during this time.”

AND OF COURSE, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar hinted that they’d LOVE to work with TLC for one last 19 Kids special.

“We look forward to working with TLC on this upcoming special documentary and hope that it is an encouragement to many,” they wrote, without going into detail. The Associated Press reported Thursday that TLC has plans to work with two child-protection organizations, including RAINN, to raise awareness about child sexual abuse. An hour-long documentary is in the works for next month.

“We know who holds the future and are confident that He will work all things together for good,” the Duggars’ statement concluded. “We love each of you and look forward to unfolding the future with peace and joy.”

…and profitability. They forgot to add money and profitability.

TLC Axed “19 Kids And Counting.”

2-duggar-family_nc

About time.

TMZ confirms that “19 Kids and Counting” just got the AX.

The show has been on the chopping block since all the disturbing child molestation revelations about Josh Duggar: namely that he molested 5 children, including 4  of his many, many sisters. Ugh.

TLC wanted to wait to make a formal announcement in case there was any way they could salvage the show, but clearly, you can’t come back from a child molestation allegation. The public outcry was- not surprisingly- very strong, and the show was kinda doomed for the last few months. But now, it’s official.

That makes 2 TLC shows have been cut after reports of child molestation. Classy, TLC! I think now your casting department probs needs to work a little harder to find some quality reality tv subjects.

DEGRASSI REUNION, ANYONE?

Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 10.06.56 AM

UH, YES PLZ.

Lauren Collins, Shane Kippel, and Jake Epstein reunited on Monday in what I can only describe as Canadian television HEAVEN.

Collins (who played Queen Bee Page Michaelchuk on the show) instagrammed: “These guys! (Racing to post this before @shaneykipps does…) #DEGRASSI,”

Kippel, 29, teased in a second pic: “Look who I stumbled across…randomly…at the scheduled Degrassi promo shoot that we’re all a part of #degrassi #promo #oldfriends #catchingup #allgrownup.”

The three ex-castmates were also joined by Adamo Ruggiero, who played the show’s first openly gay character, Marco. So what’s the deal with this reunion? The former costars are probably gearing up for Degrassi’s one-hour special, titled “It Goes There: Degrassi’s Most Talked About Moments.”WHICH I WILL DEFINITELY WATCH.

Us Magazine reported that the show canceled from TeenNick after 14 seasons. Luckily, Netflix picked up the fan-favorite show for 2016. Right?
