Anna Duggar Admits Josh's Cheating Scandal Has Been 'Heartbreaking' (VIDEO)

ANNA DUGGARAs months pass and scandals involving Josh Duggar continue to unfold (alleged sibling/child molestation, marital infidelity, porn addiction, and now accusations of assaulting a porn star), his wife Anna Duggar has stayed mostly silent. But now Josh's long-suffering spouse is speaking up in a clip for TLC's upcoming Jill and Jessa Duggar special.

Though speculation has swirled for some time now about how Anna has been coping since the first disturbing reports of Josh's actions broke, the mother of four has kept her thoughts (and pain) to herself. (Not that we blamed her!) But if this clip is any indication, we'll soon know exactly how Anna felt:

“It was heartbreaking to hear what had happened," she said, tearing up.

Check it out:

Poor Anna. To "heartbreaking," I would add "humiliating," "potentially marriage-destroying," and most likely "earth-shattering." What an unbelievably horrible thing for any wife and mother to go through, particularly in the public eye -- and particularly when her religion calls upon her to stay by her husband's side even as indignity after indignity is brought to light.

I would love to see Anna find happiness at some point, with or without Josh, but I feel like at this point only the latter is possible. Of course, people can change, but it certainly sounds as if Josh has a lot more work to do before he can be the husband Anna deserves (and the father his children need). One thing's for sure -- a lot of fans are praying for Anna right now, and a lot of TLC viewers will be tuning into Jill and Jessa: Counting On to find out more.
