Really? Daphne Oz? Was Minnie Mouse busy? I can just imagine what torrid secrets will be told! Egads, Ben doesn't like asparagus. Or maybe Jing sleeps on her tummy. Did Austin own a fan once?
Not trying to be a jerk (again) but how in the world is this supposed to be interesting? This looks worse than the show, if that's possible. Yeh, I'll be busy with Minnie.

Aunt Bea said...

After only a few episodes, they're already doing a fill in type one? How boring this will be. After they aired Joy's wedding, the rest really was a waste of time. Either put this show to bed or improve it's content by 90%. QUIT WITH THE RECAPS already.
I agree, Meme, that this will NOT be interesting and 'reveal' nothing.

What? Megyn Kelly was not available? Snoozefest.

If they want ratings, get Nancy Grace. Zoom! I would even tune in for that!

Duggarsbegone said...

They would all go into shock if she were asking the questions. I would tune in for that, too!

repeat & repeat said...

If the ratings are high or this episode with Daphne Oz, we can assume that the Duggars will be on forever. I don't know & I have neither the time or the inclination to look through episodes, but we have already seen repeat after repeat. Jinger gets engaged, then we see Jinger growing up. Then Jinger gets marries & we see parts of the engagement show. I'm not picking on Jinger it's been the same with each of them regardless of whether they are courting, engaged, married or giving birth.

Duggarsbegone said...

There is a trailer out for the new season that starts in September; Joy's wedding prep, the wedding, Joe and Kendra's engagement and a trip to Laredo by the Seewald's to see the Vuolo's. Bring out the snooze alarms.

little big horn said...

only news so far is that jinger and jermery bought a house and kendra is already pushing them to say when is the kids coming? Jana just staying home and doing nothing. John David doing nothing either. Josiah is doing nothing either. got a ploits licensie also.

Aunt Bea said...

They had the nerve to say that without the 'taskmasters' they'd be sitting around doing nothing? That's what they do...nothing from what we can see.

Daphne Oz: Not a good interviewer, IMO. She talked too much. Interviewers listen and keep the chatter DOWN when someone is answering a direct question. I also think these adult kids were directed by the director to be 'bubbly' as they normally are NOT.

lisa mcgingess said...

ok these duggars last night the show was borning but oh boy can you really see how they think they are better then the rest. That lady asked them if anyone failed at the courtship rulers and none of them said they failed? Ben only said he prayed and asked God for help? Ok that is fine but we all fail why not admit maybe you did and show some feelings none of them have any feelings they just look like its all fake?

imaamy said...

I'm watching now and have already lost count of how many times Daphne says "I feel like..."

Pam said...

I actually can believe no one failed. They are never allowed to be alone.
The engagements look so awkward without a kiss. You can tell they want to. It's not wrong. I really wish one of the Duggar children would say they have had enough and aren't going to live this way. Maybe it will be Jordyn or Josie.

Wheez said...

Maybe I missed it but other than what Ben said, I thought they kind of avoided answering the question of whether they had broken "any" of the rules.

Wheez said...

Seemed like Ben looked sad or something. Thought Jinger looked nice.

Only Aksing said...

Am I wrong or was that Wanda Sykes that made the announcement about Jill & Derick's new baby? Surprised me, as she is known to be "openly lesbian." That doesn't bother me in the least, but thought the Duggars avoided "Gay People." Didn't watch last night but saw that on social media. Is this another case of the Duggars saying one thing but doing another??

LilBit0318 said...

Only Aksing...If you mean in the little "TLCme" clip during one of the commercial breaks last night, no, that wasn't Wanda Sykes. It was Danni Starr, who does little promos like that on TV and online for TLC.

Auggie said...

They showed the one photograph of Jill with the baby, but it was Jessa who did the video announcement & said both Mom & baby are doing well. The Duggar's always do their own announcements; weddings, engagements, babies, gender of babies, etc. Something has to be going on if Jill didn't do her own video announcement.

At one point in the interview Daphne said something about Jill & Derrick would probably be returning to CA after the baby was born & all was well. I took that to mean once the baby was a little older & Jill had recovered. Not one of the Duggars answered or even nodded yes. It seemed to me that they knew there was a concern with the pregnancy & returning to CA might not happen. It was taped '26 days' after Joy got married so less than a month before Jill had the baby. I wonder if she did have some medical care for the baby.

Just Disgusted. said...

Still way too many viewers for a ridiculous repeat show of nothing but repeats.

Just me said...

Those ratings are good enough to keep them on. Jim Bob must be thrilled!!

Only Asking said...

Thanks LilBit0318. Thanks for clarifying that for me. I must have missed something, as I was sure an announcement was made during the commercial by that woman, Danni Starr,announcing that the baby had been born & they showed some pictures but only the same one with Jill in it. I didn't see or hear the announcement Jessa made. Don't know how I missed it & why would they both (Jessa & Danni) be announcing it?There was definitely an announcement made by someone other than Jessa during the commercial break.

Only Asking said...

Sorry for my mistakes. I just caught a rerun of the part of the show where Danni was making the announcement & saw that they then went to Jessa & she did the family announcement. Guess everyone is right that they always do their own announcements but not this time, it was done by both Danni Starr as well as by Jessa..

WannaKnow said...

Where is Jill???? It has been 10 days since Samuel was born. Normal recovery is 3-4 days. She loves the spotlight, and making videos of herself/family. So, where is she?!

Linda said...

That episode was filmed in June.

Grandma Wagner said...

Something is wrong with Jill. We all know she usually can't wait to tell the world about birthing and babies but we only have one hospital photo of her and a few of the baby with lines monitering him. Jill should be home by now, 10 days after the birth, smiling and posting photos such as how Israel is coping with being a big brother, posting a pic of JimGod holding his new grandchild....what's going on..we all want to know.

lisa mcgingess said...

I agree with you Grandma something is wrong here Jill was really big during these pregnancy and i bet she had diebtiacs and could have led to some complications. which no one is talking about? and someone who had no medical attention during any of this pregnancy is such a shame.

Aunt Bea said...

Did anyone find it annoying that the Dillards photographed themselves flying first class? No mention if it was a free bump up or cashing in extra FF miles. If neither of those things applied, frugal missionaries asking for donations from others shouldn't be flying first class, IMO. Of course, NO explanation as to WHY or HOW they're in 1st class.

Always said...

Re: Aunt Bea's comment abut the Dillards lying first class. I noticed that also but have seen it before. We never see them squeezed in with no room to move. Guess the people that support them feel that they should have nothing but the best.

Always said...

Re: My comment about the Dillards lying first class. Hope everyone knows I meant, "flying" not "lying." Just a Freudian slip!

Lizzyb said...

Oh my goodness- I could barely watch this due to Daphne Oz. She is the worst interviewer- constantly interrupted and talked way too much! While there was probably not that much new the Duggars could reveal, she certainly did not contribute to gathering new info from them! I'm happy that Jinger appears NOT to be pregnant as it's nice for the two of them to really get to know each other first rather than to rush into starting a family so quickly. .I think Ben is already overwhelmed by this marriage and 2 young children. I'm not sure why the Duggar single boys annoy me but they do. They just seem to have this attitude that they are so worldly and knowledgeable but in reality, they are uneducated and yet opinionated. All in all, a waste of my time.

Bird said...

Does anyone know for sure they went back? All the bs about a babymoon has me thinking first class to Hawaii or a beach somewhere..

Emma said...

Re the older boys and their over inflated egos, the apple didn't fall far from daddies tree. You americans have a great word that I think of a lot with these boys (including dad) especially when they open their mouths, doofus!

Over Them said...

I don't know when Daphne Oz decided that she was a TV interviewer. She doesn't offer anything to the cooking show she's on & I have never seen her do interviewing before & she should forget about that part of her career. She's just not good enough to be an interviewer. Other bloggers are right, she doesn't know her job is to ask questions & listen to the answers. Although I agree nothing interesting there either.

Andrea said...

Daphne Oz is where she is because of her father. I agree she didn't bring much to the interview, but let's be honest, the Duggar's don't bring much either. So it's an even match. That said, I think Daphne Oz seems like a genuinely lovely person! So she talked more than who she was interviewing, I'd likely do that too; The Duggar's are just so boring and obviously unwilling to answer questions we wanted answered (ie. College, employment, financial, etc).

The Duggar boys have always annoyed me some more than others. Josh of course even from the beginning had this elitist self absorbed attitude that was so unattractive.
Jason bugs the snot out of me currently. He reminds me so much of Josh in his mannerisms and talk. Jason telling that story about how he saved Joy from a bear just made my skin crawl and his facial expressions yuck.
John was getting a pass from me but every since Josh they have made him more visible.

Remember when John "pretended" to forget Anna's wedding ring at their wedding and jumped off the stage? That was bad enough back then, and I don't think he has matured in any way. He even copied Josiah lame pretending -to-get-stuck-by-corsage-pin trying to be funny. They are NOT funny.
I can give one example of when Jimbob was actually funny and he wasn't trying: they went on the big group bike ride somewhere and the kids had to go to the restroom. Apparently the producer got Jimbob outside the outdoor restroom for a quick interview about the bathroom break. Jimbob actually started to explain what a bathroom break was and then realized how stupid what he was doing was and he walked away. Honestly that was one of Jimbobs goofy funny moments that would make him endearing if he had unguarded moments like that more often. But when you are trying to be perfect it's hard to laugh at yourself.
Maybe that's the problem with the boys? They are so guarded trying to be perfect that they have no self deprecating humor. If you can't laugh at yourself something is wrong.

Stephanie from Virginia said...

Your right. Babies are their Brand and normally Jill and family would be milking a new baby for all it's worth. The only photo of Jill released she looks sickly gaunt and is either crying or holding back tears. Either the baby has a diagnosis or Jill has had a serious complication and either way they are trying to decide when and how to announce it OR whatever is wrong will eventually go Away and they whave by have to say anything. Whatever it is they are embarrassed by it. If someone is sick usually people turn toward their faith and ask for prayer warriors but this is something they don't want to share? It's strange

Meme said...

The Dillard's fly first class. Surprise surprise. Just another example of how these people take advantage of others and others' money. Ya'll, I am SO over the Duggars!!! What's it gonna take for their "fans" to lose the rose-colored glasses and see what they really are? And God help us all if they win their lawsuit.
In my mind, whenever I think of Jim Bob, I recall a clip of him with his back to the camera, getting caught stuffing food in his mouth, then sheepishly turning around to answer a question. I don't recall the question or his answer. I do recall that he managed to sputter out a few words, plugging the show as always. He has no shame and he raised his kids to be like him. They congratulate themselves and...oh, I'll stop now. Justice can't be denied forever, right?

Heart in Florida said...

The Duggar family IMO has made no changes with the older girls marrying other than bumping Johanna "up" to assistant maid, cook, & babysitter to Jana. Life hasn't changed AT ALL for Michelle....because that's the way she wants it.
