Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson: Inside Their Scandalous Love Story

Sometime in the near future, Josiah Duggar will marry Lauren Swanson.

As for exactly when the couple will say "I do" … well, the Duggars are keeping that information under their hats.

Why? Well, they would have us believe it's because they don't want obsessive fans crashing the party.

But fans think there's something much more sinister going on here.

So join us as we take a deep dive into the most scandalous Duggar courtship to date and try to sort out the mystery that is Josiah and Lauren's romance:

1. Young Love

Josiah and Lauren reportedly hit it off immediately and began talking marriage just days after their courtship began back in January.

2. International Intrigue

Rumors of Josiah and Lauren’s courtship began when Swanson was spotted traveling with the Duggar clan during their trip to Australia. The couple announced their courtship shortly after returning to the States.

3. Making It Official

Of course, fans couldn’t really be sure this thing was for real until the family released one of their traditional welcoming videos in which Jim Bob and Michelle do all the talking, and it’s mostly about Jesus.

4. Keeping Up Appearances

At this point, Josiah and Lauren’s courtship appeared to be very similar to the Duggar romances that preceded it. Of course, there were already some key differences.

5. A Different Breed

Josiah has always been regarded as the most rebellious of his siblings. So perhaps it’s fitting that he’s taken the loosest interpretation of his family’s strict courtship rules.

6. Round Two

The most obvious way that Josiah is unique among his siblings is that his first courtship didn’t result in marriage.

Farrah Abraham: JJ Abrams Is Gonna Make My Life Story Into a Movie!

Backdoor Star Wars? Super 8 Inches? Felicity, But She’s a Porn Star Instead of a College Student?

Yes, the prospect of a Farrah Abraham-J.J. Abrams collaboration has our minds racing with possibility.

Farrah Abraham-JJ Abrams

Unfortunately, at this point, the project exists only in Farrah’s fevered imagination.

It seems that ever since being fired from Teen Mom OG for her refusal to stop performing in online sex shows, Ms. Abraham has had a lot of time on her hands.

While much of that time has been dedicated to less-than-productive pursuits, such as getting arrested for attacking hotel staff, she’s also been casually toying with the idea of dropping a new Citizen Kane on all our asses.

Yes, Farrah is hoping to adapt her memoir, My Teenage Dream Ended, into a Hollywood feature film.

And she knows just who she wants in charge of the project.

“I’m working on storyboards right now and the screenplay, it’s really a project and a challenge and it’s crazy good,” she recently explained to TooFab.

“I can’t wait, I’m on my first draft right now and it’s going beyond what was said in the book.”

But don’t worry, Farrah isn’t straying too far from the magic that made Teenage Dream the Moby Dick of reality TV memoirs.

“The book is a classic, and that’s where everything stems from, and that’s the main storyline, which we need to stick with,” Farrah says.

“But I also think showing some before and after the show is really what the fans want, so we’re getting that and I can’t wait to show that. It’s going to be very interesting.”

Yes, Farrah just unironically described her memoir as a classic.

And who knows? Maybe in 40 years, schoolchildren will be writing book reports about the various symbolic meanings of the term “backdoor” in Farrah’s masterwork.

Believe it or not, that seems more plausible than Farrah’s plans for the movie version of her book.

You see, Farrah not only thinks this film is getting made, she’s convinced it’s gonna win every Oscar and make a cool few billion at the international box office.

“We’re going to have a real casting director, producers, the best of the best for everything,” she stated.

“Maybe I’ll work with J.J. Abrams, there are some other people on my top list.

“The production companies associated with I, Tonya, I really think they would get this storyline as well. So I can’t wait to see who’s the best fit.”

Actually … comparing herself to Tonya Harding might actually be the least-dumb thing Farrah has ever done.

As for JJ’s involvement — well, can envision that meeting now:

Abrams: So what’s this project all about?

Cigar-Munching Hollywood Type: A reality star who sells plastic molds of her b-hole on the internet. But don’t worry; it’s got a real casting director!

Abrams: Sold!

As for who will play the role of Farrah, it’s tough to predict which direction her ego will take her in on this one.

Obviously, she would relish the attention that would come with playing herself.

But at the same time, the allure of recruiting some A-list Oscar-winner like Jennifer Lawrence might be too strong to resist.

Watch Teen Mom OG online to remind yourself how much of a plum role Farrah would be an actress willing to go full batsh-t.


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!
