Amy Duggar King Returning to Reality TV

 The Duggar family at cousin Amy Duggar's wedding

This just in. Amy Duggar King, niece of Jim Bob Duggar and cousin of the 19 Duggar children, is returning to reality TV, but not in the way you may have expected.

Amy married her sweetheart, Dillon King, during a September 2015 wedding ceremony attended by the majority of the Duggar family. She has made cameo appearances on several episodes of 17 Kids and Counting, 18 Kids and Counting, and 19 Kids and Counting, as well as on the 2014 TLC specials "A Big Announcement," "A Duggar Leaves Home," and "Amy's Nashville Dreams."

Earlier this week, WE tv announced the cast for season seven of its reality show Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, set to premiere Friday, January 6th, at 9pm ET/8pm CT.

What does this have to do with the Duggar cousin? Amy and Dillon King will be featured in the new season, alongside a cast of "troubled reality star couples" from the shows The Bachelorette, Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta, Bad Girls Club, and Mob Wives.

In its press release, the network states that when Amy and Dillon arrive on set after only seven months of marriage, "their lack of respect for each other is apparent." After being counseled by therapists Dr. Ish Major and Dr. Venus Nicolino, each of the reality TV couples will decide whether to "stay together or go their separate ways."

Disclaimer: We are not encouraging you to watch this show, as it does not represent the values of the majority of our readers, and the promo videos posted online contain quite a few obscenities. We simply wanted to make the announcement, should you hear about it from another source and wonder if it's true.

'It's not about what we have' (Michelle)

As a mother of 19, Michelle Duggar has gained quite a bit of wisdom over the years. She and Jim Bob Duggar say they are still learning themselves, and while that may be true, there is still much that the two of them can teach, as well. What do you think of this quote by Mama Duggar?

List of Jinger Duggar's Bridesmaids

Happy Saturday to our lovely readers! Many of you have asked for a list of Jinger Duggar's bridesmaids. The sixth oldest Duggar child walked down the aisle with ten gals. Her sisters encouraged her to delegate tasks so she could remain relaxed on her wedding day, and their advice worked; the bride stayed calm throughout the entire process.

Here are the names of the bridal attendants (from left to right) and their relationships to Jinger:

Johannah Duggar (sister of the bride) 
Jennifer Hartono (friend of the bride)
   *Jennifer was a foreign exchange student from Indonesia who met the Duggars several years ago when her brother connected with John-David and Jana on a mission trip.
Jana Duggar (sister of the bride)
Joy-Anna Duggar (sister of the bride)

#FlashbackFriday Michelle Disciplines

We hope y'all are having a wonderful day. In honor of #FlashbackFriday, we have an old Duggar video to share. It was filmed in 2008, when Michelle Duggar was pregnant with her 18th child, Jordyn-Grace Duggar. 

The mom of many attempts to do an interview with Discovery, while keeping toddlers Jackson Duggar and Johannah Duggar quiet. Filmed more than eight years ago, this video clip will give you a behind-the-scenes look at Duggar discipline.

Dillards and Seewalds Are Ready for Christmas

The Dillards and Seewalds are getting ready for Christmas! Jill, Derick, and Israel Dillard have been home from Central America for almost four months. They are living in the home that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar refer to as their "guesthouse," located next door.

Both Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald are proud of their Christmas decorations. For both of them, this is their third Christmas as married women and their second Christmas as mamas. Have you decorated for Christmas yet?
