Anna Duggar to Appear on ‘Jill & Jessa: Counting On,’ Will Finally Address Josh Duggar Scandals

Anna Duggar is finally ready to speak out on the scandals that rocked her marriage and family to the core!

Anna has stayed quiet since her husband, Josh Duggar, admitted to having an affair via the cheating website AshleyMadison.com, but today TLC announced that she will finally discuss the multiple scandals surrounding her husband. Anna will appear on Jill & Jessa: Counting On, the upcoming TLC specials starring her sisters-in-law, Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald and their families.

“It was heartbreaking to hear what had happened,” Anna says in a preview of one of the specials.

“My first thoughts were for Anna,” Jill says, describing the moment she found out that Josh had an affair.

As The Ashley previously reported, Josh called himself “the biggest hypocrite ever” after he was outed for having an affair. That scandal came just a few months after it was publicly revealed that Josh had molested five young girls during his teenage years. After his cheating scandal was exposed in August, Josh checked himself into a long-term rehab facility. (It’s been rumored that he has since left that facility, but that hasn’t been confirmed.)

Anna learned of Josh’s affair just one month after the couple welcomed their fourth child, Meredith.

Of course, TLC is also sneaking  other members of the Duggar family, who will discuss how the scandals impacted them. The network cancelled the family’s reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, in September, but given that the show was the network’s highest-rated reality show, TLC was probably eager to find a way to bring the Duggar family back.

The network has announced the the first of the three ‘Jill & Jessa: Counting On’ specials will air on Sunday, December 13 on TLC. The other two specials will air on December 20 and December 27.

  1. Ugh. They just put Anna in the preview to get attention for the show. How disgusting that they would exploit her misery like this. People will tune in to see Anna talk about the affairs. I really loathe the duggars


    1. I agree I had no interest in watching jill and Jessa but since this preview with Anna I’m gunna watch because I wanna know why someone could possibly stay with how “good” Anna is to josh


  2. I don’t think The Ashley posted about this but Josh is being sued by an adult film actress for assault after they had sex. Watching all these stories come about about Josh Duggar is like watching a car crash. I can’t look away!


    1. She didn’t but im pretty sure the case will be thrown out of court… If it caused her that much emotional and physical trauma how come she still did it for a second time… I think shes just suing because of how much publicity the thing got…. and for money


  3. I know she subscribed to the Duggar dream but my heart just breaks for Anna. No one deserves the pain and embarrassment Josh put her through, especially since she was the ultimate “wife” that followed all the rules. I really hope she wakes up and finds the strength to find someone to really love and appreciate her, along with those 4 kiddos.


  4. When Anna sighed “Yeah..” I feel like that was the only thing she’s ever said that was genuine. Not scripted. Not perfect, just real.


  5. Anna needs to grow a set and leave the whole Duggar family behind and head back to Florida with her children. You can see the hurt in her eyes. I seriously doubt that the marriage can survive something of this magnitude. It would never be the same. Josh doesn’t deserve Anna.


  6. Seeing that top picture of her makes me so sad. She was just a sweet naive girl who had no idea what she was getting into. I wish she would take her kids and move on and find happiness.


  7. Anna lost a lot of weight…although it looks good on her, its still sad that she lost so much, because you know it was more than likely stress related….Also its super creepy how she speaks like Michelle. I really hope she knows what she’s doing by choosing to stay with that piece of shit husband she has. I feel like he could cheat on her a billion times and she would stay


    1. I think she just sounded like Michelle when she first spoke because she was speaking very softly to hold back tears. Her voice changes to a not as similar to Michelle voice a few words into it.


    2. Advice for Anna. Smile, get that glazed look in your eyes, and talk in a high baby voice. Move your head from side to side to show interest in whatever is being said to you. It’s called survival. You have 4 little kids, I’m sure by this time next year it will be 5. They all depend on you. You don’t have time for a break down or and education to go out and support them. So keep on smiling, just like Michelle.


  8. Anna has lost so much weight. Under normal circumstances that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but based on what happened I’m guessing it’s either because she feels like she has to lose weight to be attractive to her husband or she’s been simply so overwhelmed/depressed that she’s stopped eating, and both of those are terrible situations.


    1. Agreed. But if it was “for Josh”, she’s forgotten that in his Ashley Madison account he listed his ‘type’ as short hair, jeans and t-shirts. So the whore of Babylon, as far as they’re all concerned. *rolls eyes*


    2. Anna is really pretty. Why is she staying with that cheating asshat Josh? I wish she weren’t so brainwashed! Leave Anna, you deserve so much better!
