  1. Guess if you find bickering entertaining this would be the show for you. Not for me!Won't be watching.

  2. They both come off as quite immature and do not seem to have a good level of consideration or respect for each other. I can't imagine how their marriage will be successful.

  3. No thanks on this show

  4. I watch the Amy & Dillon special. Didn't watch her on her other shows since 19 & Counting. Good to see Amy again, and I thought her husband Dillon was good to her. It's great they bought a house and fixing it up together. I love the stained wood they put around the fireplace. God Bless you guys......Jane

    1. Maybe Dillon learned a thing or three on their marriage encounter show? Because their interactions there were scary, whether contrived or real.

    2. I did not enjoy this special. There seemed to be a lack of respect. Eileen

  5. They were "acting" the only real emotion was Amy crying over her parents divorce because I'm sure that is still raw with her.

    I said in another post that Amy is not a girls girl. When she said her and Dillon were "best friends" being a conservative Christian myself, I was brought up to not be "friends" with the opposite sex. It leads to romantic feelings. Exactly what happened to these two. It's immature of Amy to think a man is her best friend.

    1. A man can be a woman's best friend. There is nothing wrong with that. I had a lot of male friends when I was younger and I still prefer having male friends, and it doesn't always lead to romantic feelings. And so what if two best friends fall in love? That's pretty normal.
      There's nothing immature about Amy thinking that. It's actually sad to think that a woman can't be friends with the opposite sex.

    2. You realize all of the Duggar girls call their husbands their "best friends", right? But you're OK with that?

      Delete
    3. All of the Duggar girls say they married their best friend.

      Delete
    4. Stephanie- So... it's wrong to be friends with a guy first and then have it lead to romance? I speak from experience and I couldn't disagree with you more. Been married now for over 25 years. Friends first, then lovers, then husband and wife.

      Delete
    5. I have guy friends and we go way back. No I don't hang with them on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Sometimes we have couples dates which are fun.

      Delete
    6. Stephanie, sorry but I totally disagree with you, my best friend when I was younger was a boy even though I had many girls friends, he was the one I felt more confortable talking to than the girls I trusted him more than the girls with my personal issues and we both married some one totally different and my daughter now twenty one years old met her best friend in her freshman year in high school and he's a male and been with her throughout good and bad, her girl best friend stabbed her on her back and guess who was there to comfort her male best friends, she has a boyfriend and he has his girlfriend and they double date, so by my own experience I could say, yes you could have a best friend from the opposite sex and respect and protect each other.
      Yes, we are a conservative family as well!

      Blessings 💕🌹

    7. STEPHANIE FROM VIRGINIA - I didn't watch Amy's special, but you mentioned something that I've noticed about the married Duggar girls. I specifically heard Jill, Jessa, Jinger and most recently, Joy, refer to their soon to be husbands as their "best friends". Now, you don't get much more conservative Christian than the Duggars! So, my point is that it must be normal for them to say that. I first noticed when Jessa said it about Ben. Then rewatched episodes around Jill's courting and she said it. With Jinger and Joy, I was listening for it, and they said it too! I just found it odd since courting to engagement can be only a few months, NO private conversations, NO sharing deep personal secrets, yet they're suddenly " Best Friends"! I've NEVER heard the guys say it, only the girls. Watch their wedding prep shows, you'll hear it. I just find that strange.

      Delete
    8. I find this comment way off base. My husband was my best friend and 12 years later he still is.

      Delete
    9. I'm surprised at how many people disagreed with me. There is no way I would want my husband talking or texting to another woman or having lunch or whatever opposite sex besties do. I guess if both parties are single but I thought Amy said Dillon had a girlfriend? I have already deleted nor would I even watch it again anyway.

      Yes I have heard people say they married their best friend. My husband and I were crazy in love (sickening to everyone else) and he's the first person I call when I have news. He's the first person I call just to say hi. He has became my friend but he was my love and passion first. It sounds silly but that was 25 years ago

      Delete
    10. You don't really know anyone after a few months. Even after a few years there can still be things you don't know. It's just robotic when they use the term "best friends."

      Delete
    11. If I'm understanding you right, Stephanie, I agree with you. Of course our spouses should be our best friends, but having an opposite gender best friend that is not your spouse is silly, especially after you are married. Before you are married, I think it's fine to spend time with mixed groups of girls and guys, and then after you are married, of course you have other couples as friends, but one-on-one time with the opposite gender, unless you are single and are working towards marriage with that person, is dangerous.

  6. Even if I had cable which I dont,I wouldnt watch this show. They are just trying to benefit from the Duggar show. Not interested in them.

  7. Seriously makes me shiver. I feel bad for the way she talks to him. I can't stand watching "cousin Amy"... Just being honest. Why does TLC put her on there?

    Replies
    1. I felt the same way. When Amy was on a few episodes with the Duggars she was happy and bubbley but on her new show she lacked that happiness and was a little rude to her husband. Seemed like she kept the focus on herself and her "wants". Dillon on the other hand was very thoughtful and tried to lighten up a situation with cute jokes. I had to turn this one off!

  8. i do not like the way she pointed her figure out him. not nice.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Well she/he could do with observing her cousins.... anyone who says being submissive, gentle, meek as a wife and being protective, listening, thoughtful as a husband is outdated watch this and your on the right track to observing how to have an argument and treat one another with total disrespect! I think watching the couples who are doing the opposite is a lot nicer and encouraging to watch!!!

  13. Amy, you are in the public eye. People look up to you! How about showing some respect and honor to the husband God gave you.. Just like Christ left an example for us to follow, you also leave an example for those watching you, to follow.. Its disappointing to see you put him down and belittle him!

  17. Haha, they sound married....takes a few years to get the whole cooperation thing down. Clapping at your husband seems a little over the top, because that annoys EVERYONE, but he needs to learn to stick up for himself, anyway.

  18. Won't be watching.....not entertaining to me.

  19. She just does not speak to him with respect in her tone. And telling him not to roll his eyes at her makes it seem like she's talking to a teen, not her husband. So sad.

    1. Amen and Amen! She absolutely belittles her husband. Why would anyone want to watch her or their show? He needs to verbally stand up to her and put a stop to her disrespectful mouth and show her he will not accept this treatment another day from her.

  21. I enjoyed the episode showing they are using the tools provided to respect and not communicate.
    It's raw but they do care and effort is being made.
    It's great to see Amy happier and beginning to mature.
    She can't help the past and I hope people give her a kind heart. It's not easy to be publicly vulnerable on national TV.

  24. Personally I think the way she is talking to him is really disrespectful I mean she could be nicer they should have discussed it beforehand because other than that he was doing the wall which is what was discussed she didn't say how so for her to come later and I don't care I don't care how long it takes I don't care this childish Petty and selfish and I don't see how she is being labeled as one of the duggard you know cuz their daughters don't talk to the husband's like that I've watched them but if this is going to be a new show I'm going to pass

  26. After reading about their interactions with each other on that marriage boot camp show I lost a lot of respect for Amy and Dillon. So no I didn't watch the show and will not watch any future episodes either. I usually do not comment but felt I had to on this. But I do wish them luck.

    1. Personally, I don't think it's fair to not even give them a chance. You can't believe everything you read, sometimes you need to see things for yourself before making a decision, let alone a public comment about them.

    2. 11:41, all I personally needed to see was this short clip and it was telling enough for me to make my own decision and choose to not watch these two. I will not watch a lady belittle her husband in any shape or form,and vice versa too. No thank you!

    3. I saw some of that marriage boot camp..rebecca is right.

    4. Rebecca and 10:39am totally agree with you two! I've been married for twenty seven years and of course we've had our issues but I've never talked to my husband in any disrespectful way and we never argue in public. My belief is "treat others the way you want to be treated " " want respect than give respect " but than again maybe she wants a different type of public! Not my show will definitely change the channel!😔

  27. no a show for me. They act and sound like immature young teenagers.

  28. The way I see it is the Duggars have a different set of fans than Amy. The Duggars don't scream at each other, swear at each other, do and say ungodly things to each other. Amy and her husband were on that show doing these things that everyday reality stars do for drama to make a buck. I am sorry but I love the Duggars because they don't do stuff like this on camera. I am sure there are plenty of reality TV fans out there who love Amy andher husband's kind of entertainment. Not this girl though. To me, it is really annoying, and like someone else said, stressful. No thank you. I see that everywhere. Just go shopping or flip channels. Lots of people bickering. Who wants to sit through that?

  31. Amy seems like a spoiled 6 year old. I didn't watch her and Dillon on that other show, but heard about it and how awful it was. In this video, though, Dillon seems to treat her respectfully and patiently- good for him! I would have gotten frustrated. I'm not too excited about Amy being back. She was fun and bubbly on 19 and Counting, but now she's a diva.

    1. I miss the old Amy too :(. I understand not wanting to follow to a T what the Duggars do, but I'm sure they were closer at one time. The Duggars didn't change, Amy did. It's sad because the Duggars were a good influence on her. Her parents divorcing couldn't have made it any better either.

    2. I never knew her parents were married. I thought they always presented her mother as a single mom on the old show.

    3. They married a few years ago; Amy was already an adult. If memory serves me correct, their relationship was on and off during Amy's childhood. Divorced last year.

  37. Poor Amy. First she appeared on 19 kids and Counting. But she wasn't content to let that be her claim to fame. So, she used the Duggars to kick off a singing career that went absolutely no where. Next was Marriage Bootcamp which was clearly not the same fan base as the Duggars. Now this reality show; again, not same fan base. I feel sorry for her because she so desperately wants the attention that the Duggers have. It just comes off as pathetic. Amy just needs to live her life and not keep striving for fame that is out of her reach.

  41. It is sad to see the disrespect. But, really we all learn from our own parents at times HOW to treat one another. Not always the case, but most times is. My DH learned tons of behaviors rooted in major pride from his parents and I learned to be a major doormat from my Mom. We had a lot of work to do and while we are still together 29 years later, we are just finally getting to the point we know how to do marriage. All our years weren't bad, just not as healthy as we are today. I feel every couple out there needs to look at how their parents, grandparents did marriage on both sides and be conscious and honest at the effect it had on them personally. We can change the behaviors if we don't like them and while hard if both people in a marriage agree fully, it's something that can be altered. Yes it's difficult,, but great marriages can be made one determined day after another. Just got to decide as a couple..we are choosing a different path and are both on board.

    2. Thanks Casey! But really it's more the mistakes we make in marriage that have been teaching us what NOT to do. And then the wisdom comes later..LOL
      I think each of us has got to be responsible for what we bring into our marriages. We can only change ourselves, our spouses need to change themselves and while we can support each other as we transform our learned behaviors into something positive, still it's a journey. Even people who have great parents can have preconceived ideas how they think marriage is or even their own issues and that adds so much more on top of everything. It's no wonder so many marriages struggle. I guess for me, I feel like to take responsibility for my actions and what issues I have will only make my marriage stronger and in the end..if each person does exactly that..imagine how much healthier we can be as a married couple. The most important lesson I have learned from my marriage is to lay down ones pride as it has no place in a marriage and to truly love your spouse AND yourself. And most importantly to see VALUE in each other. :)

  42. Amy made me feel uncomfortable way back on 19KAC. It seems like she acted out of control around her cousins & aunt/uncle, on purpose. They would do a nervous laugh and try to dismiss it, but her behavior made me cringe. You never knew what she was going to do next or what kind of disrespect she was going to show. There's a time to be fun-loving, and a time to be respectful. Amy didn't seem to understand that.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I enjoy watching 'Counting On' although I don't think I would care for Amy's show based on what I have seen thus far. The Duggar ladies are uncommon, and what is so attractive about them and it very encouraging to see. Amy and her husband seem very common (worldly, if you will) This reinforced by viewing Amy Duggar's Instagram account. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.

  44. I liked Amy back in the day...totally disrespectful to her husband...shame on her! And on tv too...

  45. We watched the show and won't be watching anymore. We always felt sorry for her before but this show was pathetic. Not to mention that they had to bleep out a few words from her mouth. She shows no evidence of having found the joy in living that the cousins have. Sorry but this is just a carbon copy of all the other trash on TV.

  46. Poor Amy.... she seems so out of control and unhappy!! Praying God will help them in their marriage! It seems this show would have nothing in common with the duggars!

  47. It amazes me to see how Christian people can be so encouraging and uplifting of JB and Michelle's family, but speak such fire about Amy and Dillon. Contrary to what you think, every couple doesn't burp sunshine and poop roses. They are young,newly married, and living their lives one day at a time. I appreciate how they don't hide behind the meek and timid Duggar persona. I wish them nothing short of a lifetime of happiness, success, and most of all love. I pray they are covered by the cloak of Jesus and continue to "grow up" together!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Honestly, I grew up with parents who screamed and cursed at each other, both constantly threatening to leave. There's no way, I'd watch this-definitely not entertaining to watch people pierce each other. That said, broken people break people. We all bring baggage of some form to a marriage because none of us had perfect parents and there's no such thing as a perfect marriage. Your spouse is human just like you and is going to let you down and disappoint you, as you will them. Knowing that up front is maturity and allows you to show them the grace that you yourself need too. We get into trouble when we make our spouse and the romantic ideal of marriage our idols-then we get mad at our spouse for "spoiling it" or being less than our ideal. Me personally, I'll take a struggling, honest Christian than one who gives the appearance of having it all together any day. That said, being a Christian is not a license to sin- there's nothing Christian about knowing you're sinning,"jus bein' honest about it", and not stopping it. I hope that if Amy really has asked Jesus to be her Savior, she'll love Him enough to make her Lord too (loving Him enough to throw off the sin that so easily entangles and applying His principles to her personal life).
