Former ‘Counting On’ stars Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard sparked rumors about a feud with her family after they were absent from the Duggars gathering.
AmoMama shares with you intimate details about how Former ‘Counting On’ stars Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard sparked rumors about a feud with her family according to Inquisitr on January 10, 2018.
Nearly all the Duggars gathered together to create a video congratulating Jinger Duggar Vuolo and her husband, Jeremy, on their recent pregnancy announcement. But, it was noticed that Jill and Derick Dillard were absent. The issue is whether the controversial couple is feuding with her famous family?
OK! Magazine reported that the Dillard’s made their own video for the expectant parents, apart from the rest of the family, despite them saying in the same area. This ignited rumors that the couple may not be in good terms with the Duggar clan after TLC fired him from Counting On.
Back in November, Derick was reportedly fired from the hit show following controversial comments he made about fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings. After repeatedly calling the transgender teen 'him' and questioning her sexuality, TLC could no longer turn a blind eye to Derick's horrible remarks.
'We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months and the network has no plans to feature him in the future,"TLC said in a statement.
'We want to reiterate that Derick’s personal statements do not reflect the views of the network. TLC is proud to share the story of Jazz Jennings and her family and will continue to do so.'
It's unfortunate that Jill will no longer be participating, especially since she's gotten a lot more interesting lately. The mother-of-two appears to have taken a few cues from her sister Jinger Duggar by starting to wear pants.
She then decided to take her edgy, new lifestyle a step further by getting a nose piercing and a henna tattoo! We thought Jill was finally coming out of her shell, but now we won't get to see her bolder personality on TV.
Perhaps the fam is pissed about the anti-trans TV exile's comments, and we can't say we blame them! Here's to hoping his 2018 resolution is to stop being the worst.
Adding to the news is the fact that Jill has begun to go away from her family’s conservative rules by piercing her nose and wearing pants, which is a big move-away her family strict dress code of long skirts and dresses.
The Dillard’s has also fallen out of favor with most of their fans because of Derick’s Twitter comments and because they attempted to raise money for their ministry via a GoFundMe account.
Since they got together, the couple has made it clear that they have always wanted a large family, saying they are ready for 'as many kids as God will give them.' They have also said that they are interested in exploring adoption.
However, some fans feel that it won’t be easy for the couple to attain adopted kids since many international adoption agencies check out social media when deciding if potential parents will be a nice fit, but Jill and Derick’s profiles are far from fascinating.
According to reports, it’s still not clear how much their social media activity will affect their adoption chances, but CFS in Arkansas had stated that they do not take things like these lightly.
According to the Foster Family Home Inquiry website, the agency does not allow corporal punishment because of the trauma the kids have had. And, foster parents must recognize and support the religious beliefs of their foster child.
The 'Counting On' returns this spring with new episodes, but Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar won't be part of the hit show.
