Duggars Under Attack for Faking a Scene on 'Jill & Jessa: Counting On'

Ugh, we can only hope this isn't true! TLC has been accused of faking a scene during Jill and Jessa: Counting On, when Jinger Duggar tried to sell a car she had fixed up to a potential customer.


On last week's episode of the 19 Kids and Counting spin-off, Jinger showed some mad skills in the mechanics department by fixing up an old car to sell. Everything seemed to be going well with the customer, Eric, who intended to purchase the vehicle, but it was revealed at the end of the show that the deal fell through, and she ended up selling it to someone else.

According to insiders, the deal was never even legit to begin with. Apparently, Eric told a friend that he was asked to film a scene on the show as a favor to a friend who works on the film crew, even though he had no intention of buying the car.

This isn't the first time Counting On has gotten grief. Multiple advertisers have asked that TLC not air their commercials during the show because they don't want to be associated with the Duggar family. The controversy of course stems from Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's eldest son Josh's indiscretions in the past year.

19 Kids and Counting was canceled last summer after it was revealed that Josh had molested five young girls, including four of his own sisters. A few short months later, he went to a long-term rehab facility after confessing to being unfaithful to his wife Anna and having a porn addiction.

Obviously, a lot of people are upset about Josh being a faker, and they should be. He even called himself the "biggest hypocrite ever" after everything about his infidelity came out. It's all sorts of crappy that people are now accusing Jinger Duggar of being a fake too. 

And if the reports are true ... well, that's even more upsetting.
