Counting On Cancelled?! Duggars Hint TLC is Avoiding Their Questions

Is the Duggar family being ghosted by TLC?

Fans are wondering if Counting On has been cancelled after there’s been zero official word of the series being renewed for a seventh season.

It turns out that viewers aren’t the only ones in the dark — the Duggars don’t seem to have any idea, either.

Season six of Counting On ended in October.

We’ve had no word of renewal. We’ve also had no word of cancellation. 

Possible reasons for the series being renewed is that the show has a very devoted fanbase.

Not all of them are fans of the Duggars themselves, but they’re captivated by the fundamentalist lifestyle that the family lives and the drama within the massive family and its strict rules.

There’s also almost a guarantee of drama to come.

Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth got married earlier this year, but not quite so quickly that fans haven’t noticed Joy-Anna’s conspicuously huge baby bump.

Many believe that the Forsyth wedding was a shotgun wedding, and that Joy-Anna broke her family’s medieval courtship rules and that the family rushed her to the altar and is lying to the world to save face.

This would not be the first time. Remember, this is the same family that hid from the world that Josh Duggar had molested 5 young girls, including four of his own sisters.

So, yeah, covering up a “scandalous” premarital pregnancy wouldn’t exactly be a stretch.

With all of that drama and more to come, would TLC really cancel the Duggars?


Counting On has never done as well with ratings as 19 Kids and Counting did.

Some former viewers may have lost interest in the Duggars, or simply been frightened off by their fringe lifestyle and the reality that 19 different children had to grow up that way, and never had a chance at a normal life.

But we think that what really hurt ratings and continues to haunt the family is, again, the Josh Duggar sex abuse scandal.

And it’s not like Josh is the only source of controversy within the family.

Recently, Derick Dillard was fired from Counting On after engaging in repeated bigoted messages about trans teen Jazz Jennings, a fellow TLC star who has her own show on the network.

In general, it’s bad form to criticize a show on your own network or a star on it unless they’ve done something atrocious. That kind of badmouthing doesn’t help anybody’s ratings and will upset higher ups at the network.

In Derick Dillard’s case, though, he was insulting Jazz Jennings, misgendering her at every opportunity and bashing her existence as a young trans woman and the show itself.

TLC had enough, and fired him for it. But with the husband of one of the main stars of Counting On now banned from the series, how do they go on?

If you think that the Duggars know … think again.

This week, on the Duggar family blog, the Duggars shared their total lack of news about the fate of their series:

Counting On has been off the air for six weeks now, and we know you all are eager to hear whether the Duggars will be returning for a new season.”


“We have been in contact with TLC, but at this time, there are no announcements to share.”

In contact but not told anything? We’ll discuss what that means.

“As soon as there is news to give, we will post it here.”

We’re sure that they will.

“In the meantime, we’re curious to hear what you like most about the show and what other TV programs you watch, if any?”

The Duggars, famously, eschew mainstream television. We don’t think that your recs of Stranger Things or The Good Place or whatever are what they’re looking for.

They say that they’ve “been in contact” with TLC, but still know nothing.

Which sounds like, at the very least, whichever producers they’re talking to don’t know the fate of the series.

Maybe TLC is trying to figure out if they can court a new sponsor or two or figure out a new timeslot for the show that will mesh well with their other programming.

Or maybe TLC is just biding their time until the right time — when they have big news to share, or during a holiday when everyone’s distracted — to announce that Counting On will not be getting a seventh season.

We don’t know. It’s odd to hear that the Duggars are as in the dark as the rest of us.


Christina El Moussa: Text Message Hint at New Cheating Scandal

As previously detailed, Christina El Moussa is dating a man with a very shady past.

His name is Doug Spedding and he’s been accused on multiple occasions of ripping off clients at his car dealership.

But those inappropriate and possibly illegal machinations are not at the crux of Christina’s latest issues with her new man.

Instead, according to a bombshell Radar Online report, questions have arisen less about Spedding’s past and more about his present and future.

Specifically: is he cheating on El Moussa?!?

Insiders have hinted over the past few weeks that Doug has been involved in a five-year long relationship with a woman named Tracy Johnson-Diaz.

And now Radar alleges to have uncovered steamy text messages between Doug and Tracy, the type that someone in a serious romance should most definitely NOT be sending to anyone who isn’t his girlfriend.

To wit:

bad text

In one message shared by Radar, Doug comes right out and asked Tracy if she wants to “f-ck right now.”

In another, she asks if the two are going to “bed” so she can figure out what to wear.

It’s unclear just when these texts were sent and, to be clear, we can’t verify for certain that Doug sent any of them.

As you can see above, the screen shots posted by Radar don’t have timestamps on them or even names affixed to them. They could literally have been sent by anyone at any time.

We can say for sure, though, that Spedding was arrested years ago for meth possession and also for violating a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend.

He had to enroll in a drug program as part of his plea deal, while the case was closed upon its completion.

Christina, of course, shares two young children with estranged husband Tarek El Moussa.

The two separated just over a year ago, following an explosive fight that concluded when Tarek grabbed a gun and stormed out of the house.

The Flip or Flop co-hosts kept this separation quiet, however, until news leaked out about six months later.

Then, to kick off 2017, Tarek filed for divorce from Christina.

Both have since shared many photos on Instagram and talked openly about maintaining a healthy relationship for the sake of their son and daughter.

Christina, meanwhile, has been linked romantically to her former contractor, to an NHL player and now to Spedding.

She’s clearly a hot commodity in the dating world.

Might she soon be back on the market as a result of Doug’s infidelity?

Might she and Tarek even give it another try if so?

Definitely not is the answer to the second question.

As for the first? Only time, folks, will tell. Only time.


Kailyn Lowry Drops Hint About Baby Daddy’s Identity!

For weeks now, Teen Mom 2 fans have been obsessing over the identity of Kailyn Lowry’s baby daddy.

Kail seems determined to keep the guy’s name a secret, but it’s hard to keep anything under wraps when you have social media followers numbering in the millions.

As a result, whether it was her intention or not, Lowry has left a breadcrumb trail of online clues that her most obsessive fans have followed diligently.

At first, all signs seemed to point to Kailyn being pregnant by Chris Lopez.

There were at least a couple other candidates, but Lopez emerged as an early frontrunner.

Today, however, Lowry seemed to contradict the the consensus.

When a fan tweeted, “Her baby is half Spanish like the other two,” Kail responded:

“What? The baby I’m having is def black lol.”

We won’t wade into the potentially problematic nature of Lowry’s tweet (except to say that’s one confusing “lol”), and instead we’ll focus on how fans are responding to the tweet.

Some believe it’s a joke. (Ugh. That would be such an inexcusable joke. Sorry! We said we wouldn’t go there.)

Others seem to believe that it’s Kail’s way of throwing fans off the trail.

(Seems like the best way to keep this particular secret would just be to stay off social media for a few months, but again, we digress.)

Still others believe she’s telling fans that this is Kailyn’s first direct comment on the identity of her baby’s father.

Previously, the only time she intentionally addressed the speculation on social media was to say that she does know who the father is.

Kail has dropped several hints that Lopez is the dad, but they appear to have been accidental.

In one case, she referred to the child’s father as “Chris” during an Instagram livestream that was cut short just seconds later.

Kailyn’s latest tweet on the matter seems to offer contradictory information, which may have been her intention.

Of course, fans awaiting further clarification shouldn’t hold their breath.

Lowry isn’t doing much in the way of elaboration these days.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online at TV Fanatic to relive the rollercoaster ride that brought Kailyn to where she is today.

And of course, follow her on social media to try and piece together the various clues about her love life.


Briana DeJesus Drops Baby Daddy Hint, Shares New Sonogram Pics

A new pregnancy? Hints about her baby daddy? Cryptic social media messages?

Briana DeJesus is going to fit right in on Teen Mom 2!

The former MTV star has come under quite a bit of fire for her rumored addition to the cast of this long-running reality series, but it doesn’t appear as if DeJesus is letting the backlash get to her.

She has something far more important to worry about these days:

The health of her impending child!

Indeed, just like Kailyn Lowry, Briana DeJesus is pregnant.

And also just like Kailyn Lowry, DeJesus is keeping the identity of the man who got her pregnant a secret from the public.

In a new Twitter post, the Teen Mom 3 alum did not come right out and tell followers just who knocked her up.

But she may have given us a pretty huge clue as part of a caption to the two new sonogram photos shared on her social media account.

“Baby S,” DeJesus wrote along with the images above and below, suggesting that her baby daddy’s last name could start with the letter “S.”

Or maybe his first name.

DeJesus also included a trio of heart emojis with these precious pictures, implying that she’s excited about the bundle of joy and already in love with her second child.

DeJesus is the mother to five-year-old daughter Nova, who she created with ex-boyfriend Devoin Austin.

She went on to become a key part of the first (and only) season of MTV’s Teen Mom 3, but the network gave the series the axe due to ratings that paled in comparison to Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom OG.

In late March, chatter of Briana’s participation on the upcoming season of Teen Mom 2 grew strong over the Internet, much to the chagrin of those who have anchored that program for years.

“If something isn’t broke, why fix it?” one of the current moms allegedly told Radar Online in reaction to this DeJesus rumor, adding:

“The show is doing beyond well.”

Another cast member supposedly agreed, telling the same website last month:

“It’s the most bizarre move MTV has ever made. They are jumping the shark!”

While she wasn’t cited in this report, Jenelle Evans has clashed with DeJesus (whose baby is “on fleek,” according to her caption for the following belly photo) since 2014.

The long-time MTV star’s fiance, David Eason, once re-Tweeted an article that referenced Briana’s defense of her allegedly abusive boyfriend, to which DeJesus replied at the time:

“I’m not even gonna dog u bc the whole world knows the truth about u. Just stay in ur lane and maybe grow up a little bit.”

Impressively, Evans has taken the public high road ever since talk of DeJesus jumping into the Teen Mom 2 fray with her, Chelsea Houska, Leah Messer and Lowry started to spread around the Internet.

“I’m not commenting on it at all,” Jenelle told The Dirty in response to the possible cast addition. “MTV wanted me to film about it and I even told them no.”

Hmmm… so DeJesus is pregnant again. She is keeping the identity of her baby daddy a secret. AND she has a contentious history with Jenelle Evans.

Is it really a mystery why Teen Mom producers would want her on board the new season?

The women of Teen Mom 2 are reportedly concerned that DeJesus would cut into their screen time, while they also can’t believe she’d come right in and earn $ 20,000 per episode.

This is significantly less than the $ 300,000 earned by veteran cast members, but it’s still way too much, Jenelle and company supposedly believe.

In other words: they’re already angry at Briana and jealous over her salary and bitter over her addition to their show?

We can’t wait for filming to begin!

Bring on the drama!
