Drama alert! Last week, nearly all the married Duggars got together to congratulate Jinger Duggar and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, on their pregnancy news, but one couple was noticeably absent — Jill and Derick. The former Counting On stars were nowhere to be found in the sweet video, which has many thinking they're feuding with her famous family.
On the Duggar family's website, the Dillard's created their own video for the expectant parents, apart from the rest of the family. Not to mention, they live in the same town. Hmmm…
Back in November, Derick was reportedly fired from the hit show following controversial comments he made about fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings. After repeatedly calling the transgender teen "him" and questioning her sexuality, TLC could no longer turn a blind eye to Derick's horrible remarks.
"We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months and the network has no plans to feature him in the future," TLC said in a statement. "We want to reiterate that Derick’s personal statements do not reflect the views of the network. TLC is proud to share the story of Jazz Jennings and her family and will continue to do so."

It's unfortunate that Jill will no longer be participating, especially since she's gotten a lot more interesting lately. The mother-of-two appears to have taken a few cues from her sister Jinger Duggar by starting to wear pants. She then decided to take her edgy, new lifestyle a step further by getting a nose piercing and a henna tattoo! We thought Jill was finally coming out of her shell, but now we won't get to see her bolder personality on TV.
Perhaps the fam is pissed about the anti-trans TV exile's comments, and we can't say we blame them! Here's to hoping his 2018 resolution is to stop being the worst.
Counting On returns Feb. 26.
