Mama June has taken her fitness regimen to the next level … lounging on a sofa and even showing some underboob for her TV show. June posed in some pretty skimpy lingerie — at least that’s what the show is calling it — for her show, “From Not to…
Yup, celebrity gossip fans, they sure do!
Counting On star Josiah Duggar exchanged vows with Lauren Swanson on Saturday afternoon at John Brown University Cathedral of the Ozarks in Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
The ceremony came as a surprise to even the most loyal followers of this couple, seeing as they kept their wedding date a secret ever since getting engaged.
“What a joy it is to be husband and wife!” Josiah and Lauren told People Magzine shorly after they became husband and wife, adding in an interview with the publication:
“Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!”
Added the TLC personality himself:
“What was even more perfect was to see my beautiful bride walking down the aisle.
“We are so thankful the Lord has brought us to this place and we can’t wait to begin our journey as husband and wife!”
Per this same publication, you can scroll down for more details from the big, romantic day…
– The ceremony was officiated by Lauren’s father Dwain Swanson.
– The decorations included flowers, wood and iron.
– For their wedding colors, Duggar and Swanson selection a combination of grey and blue, pink and olive; plus green and white.
– Lauren looked resplendent in a gown from The White Dress Boutique, while her eight bridesmaids donned blush-colored dresses handmade by Jana Duggar and Josh Duggar’s wife Anna.
The couple started courting in January and starting talking marriage almost immediately afterward.
Even for members of this… ummm… interesting family, they seemed to move very quickly.
Josiah, typically considered the most rebellious of Jim Bob and Michelle’s kids, had previously dated Marjorie Jackson in 2015.
This pair split after just a few months, however, and it took Josiah two-plus years to find another worthy dating mate in Lauren.
Similarly rebellious, Lauren has often been spotted in shorts that stop above the knee, which is usually a major no-no within the rules of Duggar courtship.
Duggar and Swanson were originally scheduled to get hitched this summer… only to postpone the date and reportedly considering walking down the aisle on New Year’s Eve instead.
But then the twosome switched their wedding back to June 30 instead, prompting an obvious rumor:
Was this a shotgun wedding? Is Lauren Swanson pregnant?!?
We’ll find out soon enough, but even if this is the case, we’re sure the family will allege that Lauren and Josiah simply did the unprotected deed on their honeymoon; hence their procreation.
You can track the dating and engagement timeline of the couple below:
Upon confirming his engagement about six months ago, Josiah said the following to People:
“We are overjoyed to begin this new phase of our lives together.
“Through the years our families’ friendship has allowed us to get to know one another as friends.
“I can definitely say I have found a great friend … even better than I could have hoped for or imagined.”
Josiah added of Lauren, who has known the Duggars for years and who has seven siblings of her own:
I so appreciate Lauren’s Christlike character and tender heart toward others.
She bring sunshine into the room and encourages everyone around her.
It’s always stood out to me that in every situation, she looks for the one who appears to be sad or lonely and quickly can brighten their day by sharing words of hope, an encouraging scripture, a prayer or even a simple smile with them.
TLC’s Counting On, meanwhile, returns with new episodes on Monday, July 30 at 9/8c.
Congrats to the newlyweds on their wedding!
And on their baby, whether they are expecting one now; or for when they will be expecting one, which we’re sure should be any day now.

That Farrah Abraham, always getting into trouble with that big, silly mouth of hers!
Except this time, Farrah made have run that mouth about the wrong person.
Seriously, she really messed up this time.
OK, so are you familiar with Drita D’Avanzo? She was on Mob Wives, she was friends with the legendary Big Ang, and she’s known for having a bit of a temper.
Like, she was arrested a couple of years ago for beating her neighbor over a parking spot. Drita does not play around.
Anyway, Drita and Farrah appeared together at the opening of an Atlantic City club on Thursday night, and afterwards, Farrah took to her Instagram to rant about the experience.
In a live video, she explained “I normally don’t do joint appearances because to be honest, I am done with other quote unquote reality people.”
“I feel like they’re either hung up on drugs, drinking, f-cked up, unprofessional, just f-cking nasty pieces of sh-t on earth.”
It’s funny, because Farrah is most definitely in the category of “reality people,” and there are many of her peers that would likely call her “f-cked up, unprofessional, just f-cking nasty pieces of sh-t on earth.”
But that’s a conversation for another day.
Without saying Drita’s name, Farrah siad “You have someone show up and like talk to the owner about how you couldn’t send her her freaking money at my dinner table because she didn’t want to eat together, but then she can’t even do the photos for the club, she can’t meet anymore, she can’t talk to anyone, then she just disappears!”
“Here’s my vibe,” she continued. “If you can’t be professional to show up to work, don’t cry to other people when you have no money, no work, no nothing … because you are nothing.”
“I’m sorry, if you are replaceable in the workforce, no one wants to hire you — that’s not everyone’s fault, that is your fault.”
She told her followers that “I had to release this, because I am done. I don’t even know why they even shared my night with someone who is a has-been.”
“I’m like, give me a break, it’s either you’re nice, you’re amazing, you have a good work ethic, or stay the f-ck out of my way!”
Again, it’s funny, because she’s never nice or amazing, right? Is she honestly this delusional?
But that’s what happened when Farrah met Drita.
And when Page Six reached out to Drita for a comment on what Farrah had said, the Mob Wives star said “I’m going to slap the sh-t out of that Mr. Ed-looking f-cker.”
You’re already living for this feud, right?
Drita also said that she wasn’t too clear on who Farrah is, and that she thinks she’s “an unemployed porn star.”
She “doesn’t care if she’s a hooker,” but still, “she f-cked with the wrong person.”
She repeated those comments in a video she shared on Instagram last night:
It seems like in the time between the interview and the Instagram video, she figured out that Farrah’s famous for being on Teen Mom OG, but she still thinks that later “she became a hooker or some sh-t.”
But that doesn’t bother her — she explained that what does bother her is that Farrah was nice to her face, and then later “ripped me to shreds.”
“I don’t know who you dealt with in the past,” Drita said, “but you got the wrong motherf-cker.”
“I no longer assault anybody, because the last time someone tried to test me they ended up putting me in jail. You’re not worth it.”
“However,” she added, “I might have to make an exception.”
It’s at this point that you really start to appreciate how badly Farrah messed up, right?
For what it’s worth though, Drita did say that “I’m not gonna closed fist punch your face in, I’m gonna open hand smack the f-ck out of you, straight up, on sight. Just so you know.”
Small miracles, huh?
If you’ve already gotten so invested in this amazing new reality star feud, don’t worry — we have one more bit of news!
Farrah saw Drita’s comments about her comments, and she addressed her on Twitter directly, writing one of her most aggressive word salads yet!
“F-cking low class trash dusted up nobody show up and work you have no work ethic and act like a criminal say what you want about me so you feel better about how pathetic you are!” she tweeted.
“Use me for press haha your a loser go get a real job my lawyer will be contacting you Psycho.”
She also tweeted “Dinner & Atlantic City was fabulous I hope the clown fixes her drug problem & her abusive relationship.”
“Girl I’m rootin for ya but have self control & don’t threaten my safety such a bad look on top of not working no wonder you don’t get paid.”
Can’t wait to see what happens next!
