Audrey Roloff Posts Extra Special Photo, Explains Why

Audrey Roloff has proven already that she can sum up her love for Jeremy Roloff in three sentences.

But the Little People, Big World star uses a few more than that in her latest Instagram caption, taking followers through a special romantic journey that focuses entirely on a…

… trestle?

Yes, a trestle.

We’ll go ahead and let Audrey explain.

“See that back there? That’s our trestle,” she wrote to open a message that accompanied this sweet family photo, explaining further as follows:

“The spot where we first expressed our feelings for each other, the spot where I became Daisy Braids, the spot Jeremy asked me to be his girlfriend, the spot where we threw our shoes to timestamp the summer of 2011, the spot where we had some hard tearful conversations, the spot where Jeremy proposed, and the spot where I prayed the morning of our wedding.”

Wow. 

That’s quite a lot of things to happen in one spot, huh?

If you’re wondering why Audrey may be feeling so sentimental at the moment, especially when it comes to her marriage, it’s because she and Jeremy are getting set to release a memoir.

It will chronicle their unique story.

And it will also offer some insight into how they approached their romance and how they think others ought to approach romance.

“Jeremy and I are advocates for being friends first,” Audrey writes in excerpts that have leaked online, adding in the wildly-anticipated book:

“Friendship lays the groundwork for pursuit…. If you start by building a friendship, the kind of man you want to marry will be empowered to pursue you.

“He will be willing to risk rejection, determined to be thoughtful and he will text you first, at least the majority of the time.”

It’s an interesting take on love.

We’re not here to judge it really, just to pass it along.

Audrey, meanwhile, went on to tell followers just where she and her husband are standing in that first photo published above — and why the spot holds such significance.

“4 years ago my parents moved from the house I grew up in and bought the property in the hills just above our trestle!” she says, concluding:

“God sure does have a sense of humor… This is the view from my parents backyard. The trestle. The locomotive of our love.”

Will you look at that?!?

Forget Little People, Big World. It really is a small world, isn’t it?!?

Audrey and Jeremy got married on September 20, 2014.

The beloved reality stars welcomed daugher Ember into the world almost exactly three years later, with Audrey recently making us cry when writing about her child on Instagram.

This is what she wrote:

You are pure joy. Your dimples and that scrunched nose smile, your cute little wrist wave, watching you eat watermelon, your determination, the baby grunts, how your whole body tenses up with excitement when when Pine the kitty walks in the room, your slobbery open mouth kisses, your belly laugh when Dad plays peekaboo with you, the way you cuddle your fox stuffed animal and burrow your head in my chest when you’re tired.

It’s all just too much to handle.

Grace upon grace. You are the biggest blessing and the sweetest girl Ember Jean. I love you always, always more.

A.J. Calloway: Host of Extra Denies Allegations of Sexual Assault

Extra host A.J. Calloway has been accused of sexual assault by Sil Lai Abrams, who is one of the dozen or so women who has come forward to accuse Russell Simmons.

In a newly published report, Abrams details her accusations against Calloway.

Now, Calloway has responded.

Sil Lai Abrams is an award-winning author and anti-domestic violence activist who has appeared across countless news networks over the course of her career.

And, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she accuses A.J. Calloway of having sexually assaulted her in the back of a car in 2006.

Abrams says that she met Calloway for a potential work opportunity while he was still a BET host. He was also married.

She says that, in the following weeks, he began hitting on her.

According to Abrams, her attempts to have strictly professional conversations with Calloway were met with attempts to instead discuss sex.

One night in December, Abrams recalls, Calloway exposed his genitals to her while he was driving her home after the two of them had gotten drinks.

Per Abrams’ recollection, Calloway said: “Do you see what you do to me?”

“Why don’t you do us both a favor and put that away?” Abrams suggested in response, attempting to diffuse the situation.

She says that, unfortunately, when they arrived at her house, he began kissing her and again exposed himself.

Calloway then allegedly tried to push her head into his lap.

According to Abrams, when that did not succeed, he took her hand, placed it on his penis, and used her hand to masturbate himself.

Abrams says that Calloway called her later that night and apologized.

It was only after confiding in friends that Abrams resolved to file a police report. Records show that she did just that.

As revealed by documents examinted by The Hollywood Reporter, Calloway was charged with forcible touching and attempted sexual misconduct offenses

Though NBC News had decided to not run Abrams’ story, The Hollywood Reporter did so after interviews with corroborating witnesses and after accessing and reviewing  documents, text message records, and court orders.

Even so, Calloway has released a statement of his own.

In a statement from his lawyer, A.J. Calloway denies the accusations of sexual assault.

“I was disappointed to read the false allegations about me in The Hollywood Reporter,” Calloway says.

“As I have maintained from the beginning,” he continues. “These allegations are not true.”

Calloway insists: “When I was first notified about these allegations by law enforcement more than a decade ago, I fully cooperated from the beginning and the case was dismissed.”

He then takes aim at The Hollywood Reporter for not burying the story.

THR chose to publish these meritless allegations,” Calloway’s statement reads. “Without a thorough investigation of the facts.”

Calloway concludes: “I intend to vigorously defend my reputation against these false accusations and will not let this cause further harm to my family.”

Sil Lai Abrams explains why she came forward about him and about disgraced music mogul Russell Simmons.

“I needed to tell my story,” Abrams says. “To say his name out loud, to let people know what he had done to me.”

She also says that she recorded an entire interview with Joy Reid for NBC News, but that the network decided to keep it under wraps.

“They took away my voice,” Abrams laments. “I want people to understand how incredibly challenging this is, with a story like mine that’s highly sourced, with me doing this [advocacy] work in the public arena.”

She says that she knows that sexual assault is difficult to even begin to prove, but that she has evidence to demonstrate that her claim is credible.

“If I didn’t have those things, let’s be very clear, no one would know about this today,” Abrams says. “I’m speaking out for all the other women who have been silenced, to let them know it’s not their fault.”

Our hearts of course go out to all survivors of sexual assault and sexual harassment.

Audrey Roloff Shares Extra Special Selfie, Reflects on Personal Love Story

Back in February, Audrey Roloff wrote three sentences about Jeremy Roloff.

It was part of the hashtag movement titled “#3sentencelovestory,” or else we’re sure Audrey could have written many more.

Now, along similar lines, the Little People, Big World star has posted an extra special selfie of her and her husband, including with its a detailed explanation of just why it’s so very special.

“This was a pivotal day in our love story,” wrote Audrey to open her caption, adding in further detail:

“It signified the end of friend-zone, and the day that fanned the spark of our love into a captivating flame.”

Whoa there, Auds! TMI Alert!

We’re just kidding.

That’s actually a very sweet and poetic sentence…and also an appropriate one, considering the couple has named its daughter Ember and that word is typically associated with a flame.

“I remember every single detail that proceeded this selfie as if it happened yesterday,” Roloff continued, prior to listing said details as follows:

Jeremy putting on the science goggles for the day’s adventure because he thought it would be funny, our frizzed curls, my eyes growing wider and my knees growing weaker, deep talks and silent walks, the taste of sun-warmed cherries, and the sound of the coyotes echoing through the rolling hills of Helvetia.

It was the day I became Daisy Braids.

Audrey and Jeremy got married on September 20, 2014.

As Audrey explains above, the stars were just friends for awhile before things turned hotter, heavier and, we presume, sexier.

They now have a precious eight-month old daughter and one of the most stable marriages on television.

Heck, Jeremy and Audrey even have a book in the works that outlines their romantic history and offers advice to others lookingto find love or maintain love.

We can’t wait to read it.

“Although this is not my FIRST Instagram post, in lieu of nostalgia, I just had to share it,” concluded Audrey in her caption.

(We’re pretty sure she doesn’t know the meaning of the phrase “in lieu of,” based on the way she used it here. But we’ll let that slide.)

There’s been talk of late that Little People, Big World may end soon because Matt Roloff is moving to Arizona.

If this is true, here’s what we want to know:

Would you watch a spinoff that centers around Audrey and Jeremy?

That’s a pretty great idea, is it not?!?

Someone get TLC on the phone!

Counting On Season 7 Preview: The Duggars Need EXTRA Chaperones!

Well, it’s almost that time of year.

A new season of Counting On is nearly upon us, and it seems longtime viewers may be in for some surprises:

Now, that may seem impossible as not a day goes by without the family revealing some sort of courtship, marriage, or pregnancy news on social media.

But like the Kardashians before them, the Duggars are savvy enough to keep some details of their lives under wraps so that fans still need to tune into their reality show to get the full story.

Case in point – who would’ve guessed we would ever hear the Duggars admitting to their need for additional chaperones?

As fans of the family are no doubt aware, Duggar courtship rules forbid just about all forms of physical contact before marriage.

But it seems the dating guidelines aren’t always so easy to enforce. 

Joseph Duggar and Kandra Caldwell got married back in September, but the early episodes of CO S7 find them in the final weeks of their engagement.

And it seems they’re not finding it easy to keep their hands to themselves.

“I would say when you’re engaged you almost need more chaperones because you’re getting closer,” Kendra tells the camera.

“The desires are getting stronger.”

It’s interesting that the Duggars would choose to acknowledge the harsh nature of their dating directives, as they’ve been a source of controversy in recent months, due in large part to the “shotgun wedding” rumors surrounding Joy-Anna Duggar.

Speaking of Joy-Anna, she appears in the trailer and reminds fans of just how difficult the ultra-strict Duggar courtship rules can be on a young couple.

“During our relationship, all the way up to our wedding day, we have never been alone together,” Joy-Anna explains.

“So it was really amazing being on our honeymoon and just being by ourselves.”

And all this candor isn’t the only thing that’s different about season 7.

As many fans have pointed out, the promotional materials released contain some noteworthy absences.

Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard are nowhere to be seen, but that’s not unexpected, as Derick was fired by TLC after making inappropriate comments about fellow network star Jazz Jennings on social media.

What is surprising is that OG Duggars Jim Bob and Michelle appear to be MIA.

Viewers have speculated that the show is returning to its roots by focusing on Jim Bob and Michelle’s eldest children, rather than on Jim Bob and Michelle themselves.

Perhaps Jessa Duggar best summarizes what fans can expect from the long-anticipated seventh season of Counting On:

“We’ve had a lot of exciting things happen in our family in the last few months, and you never know what’s around the corner,” she says.

That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but the once uber-predictable Duggars have actually been throwing fans some curveballs lately.

But if it all sounds a bit overwhelming, fear not:

There’s still some boring BS about Jeremy Vuolo moving books into his office, or something.

That should be enough to slow you heart rate back down.

Watch Counting On online to get caught up in time for the show’s February 26 premiere.

Joy-Anna Duggar: Subjected to Extra Strict Courtship Rules?

Last week, the world learned that Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth are engaged.

While they’ll still be forced to forgo sex until their wedding night, some of the harsh restrictions placed on the couple’s courtship were lifted the moment Forsyth put a ring on it.

For example, Joy-Anna and Austin can hold hands now, which, in Duggar Land, is actually treated as a major step forward in the courting process.

But just because the young couple is now giving in to their wanton desire to press palms, that doesn’t mean they’re exempt from one of the more stifling strictures of courting:

Young Duggars are not permitted to spend time with their significant others without the presence of a chaperone, even after they’ve gotten engaged.

Interestingly, sources say the Duggars are doubling-down on c-ck-blocking security in Joy-Anna’s case, often forcing her to get to know her fiance under the supervision of not one, but two family chaperones.

According to The Daily Mail, when Austin proposed to Joy-Anna, both Johannah and Jennifer Duggar were brought along for the ride – literally.

The couple went horseback riding prior to Austin’s proposal, and we imagine the romantic mood was somewhat dampened by the presence of two of Joy-Anna’s many younger siblings.

Joy-Anna seemed to confirm the double-team chaperone treatment in a recent interview with TLC:

“We were going to go horseback riding and I decided to bring Johannah and Jennifer along because I knew that they would enjoy that, and they got to be the chaperones of this date,” Joy-Anna said.

She added:

“It also made this day really, really special and then he asked me to marry him and I said, ‘Yes!'”

It would be one thing if Jennifer and Johannah were simply chaperoning a date that ended in a surprise proposal.

(Don’t get us wrong; it would still be super weird.)

But the situation is made even stranger by the fact that that Austin asked for Jim Bob’s permission to propose.

Nothing in the Duggar family happens without Jim Bob’s say-so, which means the patriarch knew that Forsyth would be popping the question, but he felt the need to send two of her younger sisters to supervise anyway.

Of course, at this point the Duggars have set the weirdness bar so high that if that’s the strangest thing to come out about the family this week, they can consider it a victory.

On the bright side, the stringent rules don’t seem to be affecting Joy-Anna’s enthusiasm for her romantic future:

“I’m so excited to be engaged to my best friend,”  she said, when asked about the proposal in a recent interview. ‘Austin made it so romantic, it’s amazing.”

Watch Counting On online to get caught up on this budding romance.
