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.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
