I think they might get a spin off show if the ratings for the special are good enough. No idea if it will last beyond one season, but I wouldn't be surprised by a show.

I think if they did get the show it will be a lot of staged "learning to parent struggles", possibly the missionary trips if those are still happening, and plenty of cameos by siblings.

I think the only chance the spin off has of surviving beyond one season is if more kids get married and they integrate their new lives into the show.

I agree with you. But I do think, what is so special about learning to parent. Everyone does that. Their challenges are mundane and nothing special even though they think they are. Nobody has jobs so no challenge or excitement there.

Watching them will be as boring as watching paint dry. At least with the Kardashian's, they have nice stuff (I'm told). Are we supposed to watch Jessa spend her gifted [/s grifted ]cards at Target and Walmart, quote bible versus, and take selfies.

I keep seeing people question whether the show is real because TLC hasn't posted an announcement. I suppose this link doesn't need broken since it's facebook, but I'll do it just in case they're able to track -- wouldn't want TLC to think FJ is in love with them.

That's TLC sharing the news item, and pretty clearly announcing it. Sorry to dash hopes, but it looks like they're serious. The upside is that the comments aren't much in approval.

I wasn't try to imply it wouldn't be boring hahaha. It def is. But to be fair beyond the weddings 19KAC was still pulling in viewers. It wasn't nearly as many for the wedding/courting episodes but they still had a steady fan base.

The only thing that could make them interesting is if they brought back more of the religious stuff. That will bring Tlc a lot of negative attention but who knows, it might be worth it to them.

I love that "TLC Customer Support" is trolling the leghumpers :lol:

So, I don't like Bill Maher half the time, but he recently skewered Joshy boo, along with Kim Davis, Cliven Bundy, George Zimmerman, and Joe the Plumber. So I'll give him some credit where credit is due.

Of course, Joshy boo may be only too happy to be in the company of Kim Davis and George Zimmerman, at the very least.

ETA- Also I read on some clickbait tabloid that JB&JChelle are worried Marjorie is going to narc on them in a blog post about why she needed a break from the spotlight. ooh.

      Happy Shavuot to all those who celebrate! I have no idea why, but for some reason God commands us to eat ice cream. Well, dairy. So eat cheese! Eat pizza! Eat ice cream! Eat cheesecake! It has no calories because God commands us to do so!

      I know it’s just a beauty contest but this is the 4th time Jamaica was snubbed in favour of 5 contestants who were clones (with the exception of Peru) 
      Still can’t believe Mexico won. Even Olivia Culpo was looking at the results confused😂
      Shoutout to Haiti, Canada, Thailand and Myanmar who were also snubbed.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      I just made a lovely discovery! Type a colon, then a ) without any spaces. Then type a space. 
          
      I am ridiculously happy to discover this! (I also have a nagging feeling that I should have figured this out sooner...)

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.
