There’s major speculation that Josh Duggar is returning to TV. The disgraced reality star has been making more appearances with family members on social media, years after his molestation scandal rocked the world and caused TLC to cancel the family’s hit show, 19 Kids and Counting.
Michelle and Jim Bob’s eldest son has been showing up at big family events at his siblings’ homes and fans have taken notice. Just a few days ago, Jessa Duggar shared a photo of Josh, 30, with Anna and their five kids at the brood’s ugly sweater Christmas party, but that’s not all.
In September, Anna hinted that she and Josh are still happily married, while celebrating their 10-year anniversary. Around this time, sources told Radar that the family treats Josh “normally” after the scandal. It sure seems like it, since the Duggars were all smiles while celebrating his birthday earlier this year in March. Anna shared a video of the family singing to the ex-TLC star.
In 2015, In Touch obtained a Washington County Sheriff’s Office report regarding the eldest Duggar son, Josh, admitting to multiple acts of sexual molestation during his teen years, including some perpetrated on his own sisters. After news made it’s rounds, the 30-year-old kept a low profile and went to seek professional help in Illinois. As of now, it looks looks like Anna managed to forgive her husband Josh after he went to rehab for sex addiction, and they also went to marriage counseling.
Several fans are still upset with Anna for staying with Josh after the ordeal. “I love [Anna] so much, but Josh’s sins should make her look the other way and run,” one person commented on their anniversary post, while another argued: “For all the nay-sayers: why would you want a family to break up? For kids to bounce between homes?” Josh has currently been edited out of the family’s new show on TLC, Counting On, but viewers do get to see Anna every so often. We’ll have to wait and see if the rumors about his return to TV are true.
