Amy Jordan Duggar Jordan Duggar King Duggar Wedding Part 4 AKA Amy and Dillon King

564 posts in this topic

Interesting.  Didn't she and her pickle go to Hollywood recently?  Maybe they did film something...someone upthread speculated that they were doing one of the reality couples' counseling shows.  Her snapchat would make sense in that context.  I know it's none of my business, but god, would I love for someone to spill the tea on what is emotionally happening in that family, and Amy seems the most likely to do it.

Another update from Amy on snapchat. She said that she loves how the Kardashian family can be honest an raw in their emotions when they're having a bad day, their show is full of drama and tension and then there's her family's show which is (mimicked a flat-motion)... but things are about to change very soon.

I'm curious what she means by that - unless they're going to show Josh coming back...... hmmmmm.....

Hmmm indeed!
A dig at her family's show?  Or promoting the new Counting On season (but why would she do that)?
I'm in the camp saying they filmed a couple's therapy show while in Cali.  I find it hilarious that they're newlyweds and need therapy already (see CASH).

Ah Famy, you never cease to amaze me.

Wanting fame without any actual work - maybe she idolises the Kardashian Clan?

Maybe she should have pursued that Kardashian brother instead of her pickle. 

Too late now as he is engaged to the girl he knocked up  (who was previously with Kylie's boyfriend). 

I wish I didn't know what it just wrote.

Amy just grates on me. We wouldn't even know who she was if it weren't for her family and their weirdness. It's too late for her to distance herself and be anything akin to likable for me.* You can't suck all the fame possible out of your family and then drop them like an old rag when it's not cool to be affiliated with them anymore. Any and everything she does now just feels grabby to me. 

*Maybe if she turned into someone who was committed to helping her cousins or anyone affiliated to religious cults escape to a better life, I might change my mind.

The Kardashians are definitely a guilty pleasure of mine and it drives my husband crazy lol. 

After reading through this thread and checking out wtffundies, I'm wondering if Amy got the boot partly because she was pointing out the Duggar's oddities. Amy was comic relief at first, assuring the audience that yes the Duggar's are different and some of their beliefs are weird. But now they want to do a 180 and show the world how normal they are. Can't have Amy around pointing out all the things they do that are not normal anymore.

The Kardashians are also a guilty pleasure of mine. Sometimes my husband will watch a scene if Scott's in it. That's the only person on the show whom he likes to watch. On a recent episode, Kourtney goes to Iceland for her birthday, and it's the first time she's spent that day away from Scott in 10 years. Scott has dinner with Kris, because it's weird for him not being there on her birthday. Kris tells Scott, "All Kourtney wants you to do is focus on your own health and be the best dad you can be." Scott replies, "Yeahhhhh, no." You can bet Mr. Museum lost it at that point.

I despise the Kardashians, but I am in awe of how much money they make and how good at they are at making a buck. Khloe and Scott ate hilarious, though, but I can't seem to get through the episodes.

I'm not in awe of anything they do. They're not much different than any of the cults we talk about here. I think Kris Jenner and Steve Maxwell have A LOT in common. Her manipulation of her children runs deep, and I think Kris tries very hard not to show the actual fucked up-ness of their family dynamics. But you can bet when the cameras stop rolling, there is a ton of fighting and tears from real human beings with feelings. I also suspect that Kris orchestrates events that jeopardize her kids' well-being and ruins their relationships just to make two more bucks. She's about as sweet as Charlie Manson.

Did anyone else see that Amy is taking a social media break?  In her "good-bye for now post" she even mentioned being accepting of "green hair" which will always, always, always make me think of the Bates (I do love when Amy throws some low key snark at fundies).  I get the impression she has always been a total outsider with Unkie JB and fam, and it wasn't a secret.  I think she was upset because she posted some pictures of her drinking a beer at a concert and some fundie folk went nutsy about both the beer and the concert - one even seemed more upset about the music than the beer - I was like :confused2:

Why does green hair make you think of the Bateseses? Like green eyed monster? Which always makes me think of one eyed monster and my mind goes to the gutter once more... Sorry bout that.

Still on snap chat?  So much for the break... Her post was on Instagram (sorry, just realized I never said where she posted the long rant - her words, not mine)

Green hair - I think of the Bateseses because of Erin deciding against non-fundy college because *gasp* a green-haired person might sit next to her in a class.

Erin once said she was going to attend Crown College (which is a pretty shitty Fundie-ish college) because she wouldn't have to sit next to anyone who may have green hair.

@OldFadedStarShe hasn't posted on Instagram since stating that three days ago. Maybe she meant just Instagram because she seems to get a good amount of hate there. And at least she was encouraging people to be true to themselves regardless of what people may say or how they may judge them - it's a far more positive message than anything her cousins would have said.

@VelociRapture I completely agree with you about Amy's message.  I have no clue how far her range of acceptance reaches, but she is much more positive about different walks of life than anything I've ever heard from the Duggars.  

I know that she attached herself to them via the show, so the hate is inevitable, but it still has to get annoying to second guess posting a pic of yourself in a tank top knowing how much backlash you will get.

Exactly. I absolutely get why a lot of people here don't like her. Her habit of latching onto or criticizing her family when its convenient for her is pretty annoying. But if I was her I might act the same way. God only knows how her Uncle's family actually treated her as she grew up. It's possible they loved her a great deal, but it's also possible they constantly made her feel ostracized or different because she wasn't exactly like them. If that's the case then I can understand why she might feel torn between loving them and resenting them.

I'd totally take being friends with Amy over any of her cousins any day. At least she realizes you can be a good person while drinking occasionally and listening to decent music.

Just from what we've seen on the show and the subtle things she has said over the years (like excited to not be pressured to wear skirts anymore when she gets married) that would be my guess. I think there was probably tremendous pressure over the years to not accept herself as is from that side of her family. Having no siblings and living close by, she probably did feel like the weird one and just wanted friends/stand in siblings out of her cousins, but those relationships always came with strings and restrictions.

The fact that it appears she's made a conscious effort to not try to do that anymore is probably what's jarring people on her social media. I agree she's super annoying about the cleaving and then the trashing when it suits her, I've come at her for it on here in the past because it's bugs the crap out of me. But I'm guessing there's more than a little resentment deep inside at the family she was never good enough for having skeletons far worse while making her feel less than. Just my speculation. The back and forth thing though is pretty common when you love and care about people that aren't always good to you/ don't always make you feel good about yourself. 

While I don't always support her methods or like her, I can appreciate that it appears she's just trying to be herself and do her life which is commendable compared to her cousins because as it stands none of them have any idea what that's like.

... I need this to happen purely for my own twisted entertainment. Can you imagine the amount of snark Amy and King Pickle could provide us? Or the amount of shade they could possibly throw at her Uncle's family?

Maybe the rumors are true and Grandma Mary switched shows :)   

Also, now I'm envisioning an Amy and Flame country/hip-hop fusion collaboration episode.......

Does this mean she and Grandma Mary have a business together? If so, good for them.

I'm so torn on this. Amy is so annoying but I think I might hate watch it and enjoy myself a little.

She's annoying, but can you imagine, if she gets a show, and the Duggars are cancelled*?  It would be hilarious!

Has it been verified that Amy and her husband are going to be on a VH1  reality show about couples therapy? I would watch because 1)  they will most likely ask her about the Josh scandals and King Pickle doesn't mind throwing shade at Josh 2) I want to see if Amy discusses how it was like to be compared to her seemingly "perfect" cousins.....the ones who aren't even allowed to go to her house unless their parents tag along. She's annoying but she's more bearable than her cousins.
