In a move certain to set the spinoff rumors flying, Jill and Jessa Duggar have made their first appearance since In Touch Weekly exclusively revealed that Josh Duggar was investigated for child molestation. And they didn't discuss the scandal at all.
The 19 Kids and Counting stars attended the ALIVE Christian Music Festival in Mineral City, Ohio on Saturday with their husbands, Derick Dillard, 26, and Ben Seewald, 20, one month after the revelations of their brother's past were revealed.
Originally, the appearance was meant to include a Q&A and autograph session, but these were cancelled in favor of an interview with a moderator. According to an eyewitness, the scandal was not addressed directly by the couples.

Chatting happily about marriage and motherhood, the observer tells In Touch that new mom Jill even claimed this past year has "been the best year of my life."
When asked by the moderator what the most difficult part about being on the show was, Jessa, 22, who's expecting her first child, again glossed over the scandal and said that pretending she didn't have a camera in her face was the most difficult.
The only time the couples came close to addressing what's going on with the family was when Jill addressed the rain-soaked crowd about the message the family wished to put across in their show.

"You know, sometimes things are crazy and things are wild, but really we're all in love with each other and Christ is the center of our family," said Jill.
The family's show hasn't been officially cancelled.
"Hey, we're not a perfect family," Jill, 24, reportedly admitted on Saturday according to +People+. "We mess up."
The sisters have been largely silent on the scandal aside from the Fox News interview they did together earlier this month when they both identified themselves as victims of Josh's molestation.
