The good times for Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar came to an end after their son, Josh Duggar’s sex scandals surfaced last summer. However, fresh rumours about the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar divorce have been making the rounds.
The Duggars made millions out of their show ‘19 Kids & Counting,’ which aired on TLC, and from the additional endorsements as well. However, Josh Duggar managed to jeopardize the show single-handedly, which led TLC to call off the deal. The Duggars even lost their source of extra income from the endorsements.
It has been one year and the Duggars are still without a show, except for their daughters’ spin-off show “Jill and Jessa: Counting On.” However, the show’s ratings are nowhere near what it used to be when compared to “19 Kids & Counting,” the Celebrity Dirty Laundry reported.
The downturn hit the family so hard that the Duggars struggled to make the ends meet for their large family. Jim and Michelle Duggar, reportedly, had to beg their fans for donations to run the family after Josh admitted to molesting 5 underage girls including his sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar as well as cheating on his wife.
“Jill and Jessa: Counting On” is not as popular a show and is struggling to find viewers. Jessa Duggar’s pregnancy has however brought some hope to the family, as the announcement could help the show generate more interest among the viewers.
The Morning Ledger reported that the differences in opinion regarding Josh’s return to the family has allegedly created the rift between his parents. While Jim wants him to be part of the family again, to Michelle, it is a far-fetched idea. According to a report by the Gossip Cop, the couple is, however, not headed for the splitsville and the assumptions of the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar divorce are completely untrue. The couple recently shared a post on marriage on their website and a photograph that showed the couple happily smiling at the camera.
