Josh Duggar is back in hiding amid news the family’s new TV show, Jill and Jessa: Counting On, was renewed for season 2. Josh has kept a low profile since returning home after spending seven months in sex-addiction rehab.
Duggar was reportedly interested in getting his own reality show, but no network wanted Josh, who admitted he had sexually molested 5 underage girls — including 4 of his sisters — when he was 14 years old.
Meanwhile, rumors continue to swirl that Josh’s wife, Anna Duggar, is pregnant with baby No. 5.
Season 2 of “Jill and Jessa: Counting On” will focus on Jinger Duggar, who’s courting soccer player Jeremy Vuolo. The couple announced their engagement on July 26 (weddings are always good for ratings), as TheImproper reported.
As the Duggar family was basking in press coverage of Jinger’s courtship, news surfaced that Jeremy was arrested in January 2008 for harassing a police officer.
Jeremy spent a night in jail and was fined $250, according to the arrest record published by InTouch.
Vuolo, an ordained minister and preacher’s son, said he has learned from his mistakes.
“I was part of the college party scene and was living foolishly,” said Jeremy. “I’m not perfect, but I sought out accountability and I now see great victory in my life.”
The Duggar family’s hit show, 19 Kids and Counting, was canceled in July 2015 after 10 seasons amid news that Josh had sexually molested 5 underage girls — including 4 of his sisters — when he was 14 years old.
The cancellation of “19 Kids” has been a major financial drain on the Duggars, who earned $25,000 to $45,000 per episode.
The Duggars have not been able to make for the lost income with other jobs, but with the renewal of “Jill and Jessa,” the family has revived its reality TV gravy train, as TheImproper has reported.
