Anna Duggar Visits Josh in Rehab & Believes He's Getting Better

After Josh Duggar was outed in the Ashley Madison hack last August, he confessed to his sins of cheating on his wife. He's been in a long-term rehab facility for sex addiction ever since, and we recently learned that Anna Duggar visited him at the center just a few weeks ago.

It was the first time Josh's estranged wife made the trip, and according to sources close the family, it was very hard on her. Gee, we can't imagine why it would be hard to see your self-professing cheating hubby for the first time in months after he caused a national scandal with his infidelity.

An inside source on the 19 Kids and Counting stars revealed to In Touch that Anna visited Josh at Reformers Unanimous in Rockford, Illinois, just before Thanksgiving. She left their three eldest children at home, but took 4-month-old Meredith because she's breastfeeding her.

The insider confessed, "She had a lot to discuss with Josh ... Seeing [him] was really hard for Anna ... She cried about how much she misses him and teared up while they prayed."

One of the things the couple had to discuss was porn star Danica Dillon, who had sued Josh for assault during "rough sex" just days before Anna's trip. "Anna knew she needed to talk to Josh about that," said the source, "and about the lawsuit."

Here's the really heartbreaking part -- Anna apparently takes Josh at his word that that particular affair never happened. She does admittedly acknowledge that Josh cheated on her, because he admitted it publicly, but she also "doesn't think Josh could be so aggressive."

Josh has denied the allegations, claiming that his fame has made people come out of the woodwork to take advantage of his "life of sin." The source said, "[Anna] believes everything Josh says. She actually thinks he's getting better."

Josh Duggar may or may not be getting better, and I have no doubt that Anna misses the man she thought she knew, and that she cried when she visited her husband in rehab, but she has to get real about the situation. Josh has shown over and over this year that he's willing to take advantage of those who trust him. He has about ten thousand more miles to go before he could possibly earn Anna's trust back.
