After all, her book is launching in January. And probably, it will become a best-seller. But it came at a high cost, so TLC fans are blown away by her courage.
Counting On Spoilers – Alum Jill Dillard Faces Criticism
First up, anyone familiar with the Duggar family could anticipate that Jim Bob Duggar would not be happy that Jill appeared in the controversial docuseries. Sure enough, just ahead of the premiere, he and Michelle dropped a statement on their blog. Mostly, he seemed to suggest strongly, that Jill has dishonored the family by talking outside of their community. Actually, fans already know that what happens inside the family is kept inside the circle.
Counting On fans had hoped that Jinger Vuolo would step up and publically support her sister. Bear in mind, she wrote her book, Becoming Free, Indeed. And that book, like the Shiny Happy show, also dissed the Institute Of Basic Life Principles, (IBLP). However, she seems to be back in the family fold, and nothing came from her yet. Meanwhile, fans found out that Jed Duggar isn’t happy either. So, TLC fans are happy that Jill’s husband Derick is rock solid with her.
