Josh & Anna Duggar Make Rare Public Appearance Together: See? We’re Totally Still Married!

Folks, no matter where you fall on the political spectrum, it’s been a difficult few weeks news-wise.

And now, we might all be forced to endure another public spectacle that no one asked for or expected …

We’re talking, of course, about a Josh Duggar comeback.

Yes, if you’re a Duggar aficionado you might have noticed a lot more Josh in your life lately.

And, like everything else the Duggars do, that’s 100 percent by design.

For years, there have been rumors of Jim Bob and Michelle helping their son to return to public life, and now it seems it’s actually happening.

Perhaps they’ve been emboldened by the current political climate, or perhaps they simply feel enough time has passed that fans will have forgotten the severity of Josh’s sex crimes.

Whatever the case, the effort to rebuild Josh’s public image and welcome him back into the Duggar media empire has begun in earnest.

It started with Josh appearing in several Duggar Facebook posts back in September.

It continued as Josh and Anna celebrated the 10-year anniversary of their engagement this month — as though that’s actually something people celebrate.

Those festivities prompted rumors that Josh and Anna’s marriage is a sham, as Anna appeared undeniably miserable in all of the accompanying pics.

So that was an unexpected bump in the road of Josh’s recovery, but Jim Bob is every bit the PR genius that Kris Jenner is, so he was well-prepared for the inevitable rumors that Josh and Anna are headed for divorce.

As In Touch Weekly reports, longtime Duggar family friend Josie Bates married Kelton Balka this week.

The Bates are reality “stars” in their own right (though not nearly as famous as the Duggars), so this qualified as a public event.

And that makes it the first time Josh and Anna have attended a non-family related public event since he was embroiled in multiple consecutive sex scandals back in 2015.

So you can bet it won’t be long before Josh starts making appearances on Counting On again.

Will Duggar fans turn their backs on the family in protest?

We’d like to think so, but something tells us that won’t be the case.


Roloffs Celebrate Special Occasion with Rare Family Photo

They star on the same reality show, but they are rarely all in the same place.

Indeed, while Little People, Big World may center on the beloved Roloff family, the many sons, daughters, parents and grandkids who comprise this popular unit are very busy.

They also don't all get along so well. Or so we've heard, at least.

Moreover, Jacob quit the show awhile back… Molly wants no part of the show… and even Jeremy and Audrey walked away this summer.

For all these reasons and more, it's rare to find all the Roloffs in one location.

But that's exactly what transpired over the weekend, as relatives came from far and near for one special reason:

The start of pumpkin season!!!!

Check out a giant family photo below and then scroll all around for more precious looks at various loved ones on hand to celebrate this annual occasion and tradition:

Rob Kardashian Shares Rare Pics of Daughter Dream, and We Are Like *Swoon*

Even though Dream Kardashian is growing up before our very eyes, proud father Rob Kardashian has not shared a new photo of his adorable baby girl in months.

In fact, it’s been 11 whole weeks — a veritable lifetime when you’re talking about a child as young as Dream is.

Now we have not one but two new pictures. See how much this precious princess has grown!

(This, of course, is an older photo — you’ll want it for comparison)

Rob Kardashian isn’t allowed to have an Instagram anymore.

That’s what happens when you break TOS by using the platform to upload revenge porn of your baby mama.

However, he does still have Twitter.

And though it’s been 11 entire weeks since Rob showed new photos of baby Dream, he’s now back with two brand new pics.

First of all, we have this unbearably cute photo.

Dream is quite the little fashionista!

Here, she’s sporting a soft pink Adidas Originals x Mini Rodini set, covered in panda prints, with a pair of color coordinated mini suede Vans sneakers.

She’s tying together the whole outfit with a soft pink headband.

That whole ensemble matches the big pink bear behind her.

“My babyyyyyyy girl,” Rob captioned this adorable photo of Dream.

Dream won’t turn two until this November, but some would say that she’s not really a baby anymore — that she’s a toddler.

Whatever arbitrary distinction you want to draw between baby and toddler, Dream will always be Rob’s baby girl.

In this pic, Dream is wearing a plaid dress and supporting her uncle Kanye by wearing mini black Yeezy sneakers.

But the real show-stealer is her hair.

Look at her just a few months ago and notice that she’s grown in even that short time:

As we mentioned, this photo was shared 11 whole weeks ago.

We know what you’re thinking — that surely Blac Chyna, who is allowed to have an Instagram because she doesn’t misuse the platform, has shared pics of Dream during this period.

If you scroll through her Instagram, she doesn’t have any photos of Dream — or her other child, King — from this summer.

(No, pics of Blac Chyna’s 18-year-old boyfriend YBN Almighty Jay do not count as pics of a child … and he just turned 19, anyway)

Perhaps the parents involved made an agreement to avoid sharing pics — though some fans did glimpse Dream on aunt Khloe’s social media over the past couple of months.

Either way, we get to see this little one again!

Whether you’re a parent or just a fan, watching a child grow up is a surreal experience.

As an actual child, time seems to creep by because each day is a larger percentage of your total life experience. As an adult, you see a child turn from a baby into a tiny person almost overnight.

Dream is such a cutie.

She’s a great reminder that good things can come from terrible unions between terrible people.

Honestly? She’ll be starting kindergarten in just a few short years. And we cannot wait to see the photos.


Anna Duggar Shares Rare Glimpses of Children, Continues to Break Out of Social Media Shell

Anna Duggar is starting to really take to this whole social media thing.

The beleaguered former reality star had been silent on Instagram between May 1 and July 5.

She had been similarly quiet on Twitter during this same time period, only re-sending a few messages from her family’s official account for over two months.

Not that we could blame her, of course.

Not that anyone could really blame her.

The 30-year old is trapped in a marriage to an ADMITTED child molester and an ADMITTED adulterer.

Josh Duggar has owned up to the fact that he inappropriately touched two of his sisters back when he was a teenager and also to having cheated on Anna via the infidelity website Ashley Madison.

It’s very ugly stuff all around.

So anyway. Our point is that we totally understand why Anna would stay as far away from the spotlight as possible.

For whatever reason, however, she has chosen to emerge a bit from her social media cocoon of late.

First, Anna gave props to John-David Duggar for courting.

Then, she gushed over her relationship with Josh and we threw up a lot.

Now, Anna has opened up about two of her kids, starting with eight-year old Mackynzie.

“Mackynzie, Jordyn and cousin Emily enjoyed attending a sewing camp this week!”

Yes, sewing camp.

Instead of rolling our eyes over this concept, however, we’ll simply echo the sentiment of most Instagram followers who think this is a very cute photo of young Mackynzie.

Because it definitely is.

Whatever issues we have with her father, they obviously do not apply to her or any of her siblings.

We just feel terrible for them.

Elsewhere, Anna also posted a video of her two-year old daughter Meredith belting out a tune.

Check it out here:

“She is adorable! And hearing her sing made me smile ear to ear. So precious!” reads one comment in response.

We don’t know why Anna has chosen to suddenly be so open about her kids, but perhaps she just needs some positive reinforcement in her life.

Any time Anna mentions Josh, she gets slammed online.

Folks wonder how the heck she can remain with such a disgusting cheater.

But the opposite takes place any time Anna shares a picture or video of her young children… and for an understandable reason:

They’re so very cute, young and innocent.

Anna is the mother of Mackynzie, Michael, Marcus, Meredith and Mason.

She met Josh in 2006 at a Christian homeschooling convention and the two got married two years later in Florida.

They have since welcomed the five kids cited above.

And while Anna and Josh will no longer appear on TLC because the original Counting On was canceled in the wake of Josh’s molestation scandal, it does look like we’ll be seeing a lot more of their kids going forward.

We just pray they grow up alright.


Jill Duggar Says Nice Things About Terrible Husband, Shares Rare Wedding Photo

It’s been a week of ups, downs, insults and compliments for Derick Dillard.

First, the homophobic ex-reality star was blasted by social media users on Father’s Day, considering he supports a President who advocates for tearing kids away from their parents at the border.

While wife Jill Duggar praised the dad of her two sons for being a staunch Christian, many Internet users pointed out the hypocrisy of someone who claims to hold these types of religions values…

… yet is also for the sort of cruel immigration policy espoused by Donald Trump.

Think of ALL the children being held in a detention center, separated from their parents. Is that loving? Is it Godly? NOPE!” screamed on critic online.

But we’re not here right now to wade into these kinds of controversial political waters.

We’re here to point out that Dillard is at the center of another special occasion today:

It’s the four-year anniversary of his wedding to Jill, who wed on June 21, 2014 in Springdale, Arkansas.

In honor of the milestone, Jill shared a rare photo from the day she and Derick exchanged vows (and first kissed, per Duggar courtship rules) and wrote a caption that reads as follows:

This man is my favorite! @derickdillard I’m blessed beyond measure to have you as my hubby! #4yearanniversary Ihope God gives us many more years here together! I wanna #growoldtogether.

She wasn’t done with the annoying hashtags, either, adding:

#besthubbyever, #bestpapaever, #manofmydreams, #imspoiled and #sograteful.

Of course, not everyone out there feels this way about Dillard.

He was slammed by his very own cousin recently for failing to hold up Christian values, following Derick’s ongoing tirade against the LGBT community.

If you’ll recall, Dillard was fired by TLC for constantly bashing transgender reality star Jazz Jennings last year.

We could spend a long time reciting the list of mean and close-minded things Dillard has said.

But we’d mostly just be repeating ourselves from past articles about him.

So, instead, on his anniversary, we’ll go back in time a bit and recite details from his wedding instead.

Based on a People Magazine article at the time, over 600 cupcakes, 3,000 chocolate-chip cookies and 3,000 root-beer floats were served at the reception for guests to enjoy.

More than 100 immediate family members were in attendance, as were guests from more than 30 states, Jim Bob Duggar told the publication back then.

Josh Duggar acted as emcee of the reception, pointing people to long folding tables filled with chocolate and vanilla cakes, as well as the tables with the wedding cake

This was before it came out that he’s a messed up individual who molested two of his sisters.

As for the first-ever spit-swap shared between the husband and wife on their big day?

“It was worth the wait,” Jill told the magazine.

How very sweet.

Too bad we can’t say the same about her bigoted husband.


Amy Roloff Shares Rare Photo with Molly… and Jacob! Wow!

It’s a good time to be Amy Roloff.

Earlier this week, the Little People, Big World star was actually knighted, as she was awarded a pretty special distinction by those in charge of the Portland Rose Festival.

Then, she celebrated a very cool milestone with members of her family.

But both of those achievement paled in comparison to what Amy was likely most proud of from the past few days…

… a chance to spend time with her son AND daughter.

Indeed, Molly Roloff has apparently paid her mother a rare visit, as Amy has excitedly shared multiple photos of herself and her loved one on Instagram.

“Molly came to the farm for a short visit this past weekend and I was so excited and happy to see her. Love this girl. She’s doing awesome,” wrote Amy as a caption to the trio of images we’ve shared here, adding:

“She was here to see good friends for one is heading to NYC. #momentslikethesearepriceless #familyandfriends #amyssecondactcontinues.”

Making the occasion even more unique, as you can see above?

Amy got to hang out with both Molly and Jacob.

The Roloff matriarch has a perfectly strong relationship with both of these children, of course.

But unlike her two other kids (Zach and Jeremy), they do not film Little People, Big World with their parents; nor do they live close by.

Molly and her husband live a couple hours away, while Jacob and his fiancee live anywhere they want in the Pacific Northwest, traveling the region in their RV, with their two dogs.

As you can see below, Molly made the most of her time with family, too, getting a visit in with sister-in-law Tori and adorable nephew, Jackson.

He really is so very precious, don’t you think?

Amy last hung out with Molly in late April, making the journey over to her house in Spokane, Washingtin to chill with her and husband Joel.

“The best time in Spokane visiting Molly and Joel this weekend!” wrote Amy on Instagram at the time, concluding:

“Hike, walk around the neighborhood, favorite bookstore, local eatery, church, great conversations…. Sure will miss them! I’ll be back.”

We doubt Molly will ever be back on TLC, however. She seems very content to remain far away from the glare of television cameras.

Could we see a return from Jacob, though? It’s possible.

The youngest of the Roloff clan has very clearly reconciled with his parents and siblings.

But questions have now been raised in general about the future of the farm and of this reality TV show.

Did you catch the latest Little People, Big World episode? We explained HERE why it cast some doubt on what’s to come for various members of this family.

We also outlined below why the series may soon come to an end.

We hope we’re very wrong, but take a look and see if you agree with the points made here:


Jon Gosselin Shares Rare Photo of Son, Raises Many Questions

Did Jon Gosselin just hurl some very passive aggressive shade in the direction of his ex-wife?

Or did the controversial former reality star simply give fans an update for which they’ve been clamoring?

These questions have been raised and are now being debated by social media users across the Internet after Gosselin posted a photo on Instagram of his son Collin.

He did so in celebration of the young man turning 14 years old.

“Glad I could celebrate my son Collin’s 14th birthday with him and his sister!” wrote Jon as a caption to the image below, which has generated its fair share of chatter in response.

For what reason?

Jon and Kate Gosselin have seemingly gone out of their way to hide Collin from the public for a very long time now.

Kate has even gotten into a great deal of hot water over sharing many pictures of her other seven kids, and even throwing them parties, without including Collin.

Moreover, neither Jon nor Kate ever really mention Collin at all.

The latter has even been accused of lying about her child’s whereabouts.

In September of 2016, a letter Kate penned to Collin from her memoir went viral.

In this message, Kate revealed that he was being sent away to the program for children with special needs.

She said at the time that her won was “sweet, kind and helpful” but tended to act out, explaining as follows:

“As you have grown, however, I must say you have also challenged my authority greatly.

At two and a half, you began testing and trying my parenting at every chance. I called Daddy at work many days crying because you would not obey…

“As you have grown, this has not changed. You continue to be determined to do what you want to do, and I continue to try to rein you in.”

Needless to say, Gosselin earned some major backlash for taking such issues and complaints public.

So we’re at least very happy here to see that Collin appears to be happy and healthy.

We’re left to wonder, though, just why Jon posted this image.

Is he shading Kate, using Collin against her in some way to prove that he cares more about the child than Kate has appeared to.

This Instagram snapshot, after all, was published just days after a report that detailed how Jon and Kate still hate each other. A lot.

It also came on the heels of Jon sharing an image of himself and daughter Hannah, making it look for once as if he’s actually a caring dad.

Check it out here:

“I don’t know what’s going on. The whole point is I’m left in the dark. There’s no explanation. It’s disheartening,” Jon told Us Weekly in Januaey of 2016, adding:

“I don’t ever see Collin, ever. Not off the bus because he doesn’t go to school. Not at the gate because he doesn’t come down. Nothing.

“I am totally estranged from Collin because of Kate.”

Will the feud between these two ever end?

It doesn’t seem that way.

In honor of her sextuplets turnign 14 last week, Kate wrote the following:

Happy 14th Birthday, my ‘babies’. 14 years ago almost to the minute, I was in my wheelchair, making my way around the ENTIRE NICU, meeting each of you face to face for the very first time.

I’ll never forget how tiny yet perfect each of you were.

I’ll never forget our first ‘birth day’ together……this day remains one of the best in my life…. and 14 years later, I love you 400 times as much, if that’s even possible! H

appy birthday, my babies! Here’s to many more birthdays together!!

I love you forever and always, no matter what! #Turning14 #ProudMomma #TheYearOfIphones.

We wish these exes could work out their issues in private, but that has never been their way.

Kate has even signed on to star in a new TLC dating show, which at least a few people out there will probably watch for some reason.

Overall, however, we simply wish the best for Collin and all his siblings.

May they find peace amidst their parents’ never-ending war.


Dannielynn Birkhead: Anna Nicole Smith’s Daughter Makes Rare Public Appearance

The Kentucky Derby was held at Churchill Downs over the weekend, and as usual, many of Hollywood’s best and brightest made the trip to Louisville.

For most of the celebrity attendees, the Derby was just one of many high-profile red carpet events on their calendar for 2018, but for one famous name, this is the social highlight of the year:

The family of Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead, generally tries to keep the 11-year-old out of the spotlight as much as possible.

But on the first Saturday of every May, equestrian enthusiast Dannielynn dresses to the nines and steps out with her father, Larry Birkhead.

Larry tweeted the above photo on Saturday along with the following caption:

“Celebrating the Kentucky Derby with Dannielynn,” he wrote.

“Rain won’t spoil our awesome Derby day! #halfwaycooldad.”

Birkhead also shared the above photo from a Derby after-party, noting that there’s a special poignancy to the event:

“Dannielynn before she raided the dessert room at the Barnstable-Brown Party where I met her Mom in 2003,” Larry captioned the pic, adding the hashtags:

“#lifefullcircle #BarnstableBrownParty.”

Though her mother died of a drug overdose when Dannielynn was just 5 months, she and her father often pay tribute to Anna Nicole, so as to ensure that the young girl always feels a connection to the late model.

In February of 2016, Larry memorably shared a letter that Dannielynn had written him during a candid 20/20 interview:

“Ever since my mother’s death, a friend of hers said she would send me pretty butterflies,” Dannielynn wrote.

“So, butterflies chase me everywhere and I let the butterfly come out of my pencil and fly on my paper with its wings of love.”

In the past, Larry has been accused of exploiting Anna Nicole’s death to boost his public profile, but these days, it seems he’s devoting most of his time and attention to his daughter.

Despite her often tumultuous upbringing, Dannielynn seems remarkable well-adjusted, and those who know the girl say she shares her mother’s ability to light up a room.

Here’s hoping Larry continues to mostly keep Dannielynn from the spotlight, for her sake.
