I don't have Instagram but I did see a new picture of someone on a jet ski in a lake. Anyone have anything?

My family called them "zoris" when I was a kid. (I think my dad picked that up when he was in South Korea in the 50's. Maybe when he was on leave in Japan.) I started calling them that again sometimes since the word "thongs" seems to bother my younger relatives. 

The call them zories in Guam too. Sometimes slippers which I heard frequently in Hawaii

"Zori" is the Japanese word for slip on sandals with thongs that have been in use since before 1600, and are apparently the post WWII inspiration for flip flops, so that would definitely make sense.

In Brazil everyone called flip flops, Havaianas, regardless of band. I love the sound of that and continue to call mine Havaianas; it rolls so much more smoothly off the tongue.

Aussies call them thongs and underwear thongs are g strings.

Take with a grain of salt but I was pleasantly surprised that the Hollywood Gossip article which was snarky about her oldest brother. They seem to be hoping he will get 20 years and they pointed out how poorly women in the cult are treated. From the article "But hey, if there's anyone who's accustomed to awful men taking priority of good, likable women, it's Jana,"

It's a start. May more sites start pointing out how awful the cult is.

A longer quote from the article you posted caught my eye:

Quote

If it happens, it'll be second biggest Duggar event of the year, just behind Josh getting sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Fans have been waiting for news of a Jana engagement for a long, long time now, and it sucks that her big news is being overshadowed by her husband's predatory behavior.

But hey, if there's anyone who's accustomed to awful men taking priority of good, likable women, it's Jana,

The bolded typo really ought to get fixed quickly! Someone who wasn't aware of all the players might either think that Stephen is a child predator, or think that Jana is married to Josh. :puke-huge:Either way, they need to fix it!

Though like you said, it is good to see some new fingers pointing out how awful the cult is.

Do you think the Jana/Stephen thing is really on? If she was there at Christmas and they were courting, surely they would be engaged by now?

IDK, I do think Jana would take longer in her relationship than some of her siblings, plus I don't know how long the Wissmann's tend to court before engagement

The Duggars didn’t announce Jed’s engagement and barely said anything about Justin. We might just get a surprise wedding announcement.

I’m honestly thinking that might happen.

They may not even announce it, just one day photos show up of the wedding online.

If JB cannot get TLC interested in a Jana wedding special ( which would probably have a lot of viewers) I can see this happening. Jana, herself, may prefer to have a smaller private wedding without the whole TLC circus.

Would TLC consider a wedding special even after they cancelled the main show? I mean, Jana’s wedding would probably still generate great ratings, but…

I just read that TLC has canceled Counting On so that might be unlikely.

Prior to Josh’s arrest and the cancellation of the show I would not believe they would do that. Jana getting married would be such a ratings grab. Now it would seem desperate to publicize it. Not that they are above desperate.

Maybe another network would pick up just the Jana wedding special? Didn't the Bates get dropped by TLC and then picked up on another network? But I agree, it will probably be a low-key affair that appears on other people's instagrams.

The irony of CO being cancelled when Jana finally is in a relationship…

I could see the family posting the wedding on YouTube, but a TV special? Nope.

We may end up with a people magazine cover with photos and no TLC special.

I imagine Jana might be breathing a huge sigh or relief.  If she is a relationship, she won't have to share every minute on TV. She could do a magazine article, but I'm not even sure she would do that- or she might as a parting "so there i did it, now leave me alone" to Jim Bob.

A people magazine article is probably the best way for her to do it. If the Duggars say very little about the wedding and don’t post many pictures, people will be like, “what are they trying to hide?” So they need to get the story out on their own terms. And if that is through a people article, it will be very tame. People isn’t some gossip rag. They are usually pretty respectful of the Duggars when they announce weddings. This way she can share the info while still feeling like it was a private event since no TLC cameras would be there.

I have a very hard time believing JB would let Jana get married without some sort of publicity but it might not be up to him.
