Anna Duggar apparently isn’t appearing on Jill & Jessa: Counting On because she’s finally ready to share her story.
Rather, new rumors are suggesting that she really needs the money if she wants to have any hope of leaving her husband, Josh Duggar, for good.
According to Fashion & Style, Jim Bob Duggar offered Anna a new home if she stayed with Josh after he finished his time at the faith-based rehab center he’s been receiving treatment at since news of his affairs broke.
The site reports that multiple sources told them Anna turned down the deal.
But the fact that she’s appearing on Jill & Jessa: Counting On seems to suggest that her ties to the Duggar family remain close, despite the reports of the house refusal.
Of course, to complicate matters, there are also allegations that Josh Duggar is being sued by porn star Danica Dillon, who alleges that her sexual encounters with Josh turned into assault. She reportedly wants $500,000 in damages, which has Anna fearing for her family’s financial future.
The truth is probably that Anna hasn’t made up her mind about what to do regarding her future with Josh. He’s been in rehab since August for his addiction to pornography and his extramarital affairs, which means he and Anna have seemingly put their relationship on hold while Josh gets help.
It’s unclear when Josh will be done with his treatment, but it seems likely that until that time, Anna won’t be making any big decisions about her marriage.
In the meantime, if dealing with her heartbreak can also mean earning some serious money thanks to TLC’s new Duggar special, well, more power to her.
