I had to go look and see how old Renée is—she’s not quite 17.  Does Jill seriously expect people to believe a 16-year old wrote that?!?  If she actually has a kid that talks that way, it would make me even sadder for the kids. But I’m not buying it, unless she teaches lessons on random capitalization at the SOTDRT. 

Jill TOTALLY wrote that.

The homework at her SOTDRT was probably to write an essay to “mama” for Mother’s Day with the winner getting an extra chicken leg. And Jill made suggestions on what to write.

I can believe Renee wrote it, because I think these kids don't really know any other way to express themselves other than parroting what Jill tells them day in and day out. 

As for the random capitals, I can imagine that Jill's blog posts are probably in heavy rotation as far as reading material. That style is second nature to them.

Actually Jill, the smiling faces are called emojis, and they are coming from the Unicode Standard.  It has nothing to do with Jesus or some dude(ette) high on pot chilling out at Samsung or Apple just randomly picking them out.

I know very little about the Anderson family, but there's a special place in hell for that husband/father.  He is disgusting and should not be a parent to his kids.  They're probably just tax write-offs anyway, but he doesn't deserve them🤬.

This is purely a guess...

The Rod-son was doing a FB Live and his watchers were clicking on the 'ha-ha' emoji. Jill responded saying the folks who clicked the ha-ha emoji are haters.

Haters of God, Jesus, and the Rodriguii--the holy trinity--no less. These people think highly of themselves. 

Yes. We need a barf emoji.

Thank you.  I couldn't figure out what was going on with him.  It looks like he is screaming on a roller coaster  (i know he's not)or is surprised about something (ala Jill Dullard) from his facial expression.

He's singing. That's a still from a video he made. It was posted a ways back.

He said he had had a difficult day and wanted to sing some encouraging songs to make himself feel better and to share the songs, which he loves, on a video. If for some reason I wanted to have my heart broken nonstop, I'd string that video together with everything else I've ever seen of the Rodriguez kids. Their innocence, the view of the world they've been given, how they're treated and where they'll likely end up kills me.

At least with all the purple prose, the Duggarlings' odes to Meechelle talk about being a mom (however much we raise our eyebrows at 'protecting'). If you take away the floweriness from Renee's tribute, all you're left with is a woman who God-bothers all day, every day. Is there anything there about being kind, compassionate and loving to her children, ya' know, all 13 of them.

Ugh, the Rodders and the never ending saga of those poor starving children. It pissed me off so much I can hardly bear reading their shite.

How much of the Go to Fund Me grift went to Jill for cheap perfume, dates and sweets?

Nike!  The woman baring shoulders with Guinn - who is she?  Surely she can't be Guinn's mother!

I assume it’s the groom’s mother. This is not stated as fact by me! 😂

Yikes, mother of the groom needs a serious rethinking of the undergarments!!  😬

is jessica the cop? 

Did Jessa post about being at the wedding?  I didn’t see it.

Yes, Jessica's the cop. I'm pretty sure her husband is one as well. 

As for Jessa not posting, I wonder if they sat this one out. It's an 8 hour round trip, and she's due to whelp in early June (I think due date is the 6th). We noticed her swollen legs a couple of weeks ago; maybe a real midwife stepped in and told her no go.

Wow, so TLC is going to show it. ... I guess now that they're running out of Duggarling-bride weddings, they're going to Duggarling-bridesmaid weddings. I wonder what the audience numbers will be for those. How curious are people about the in-laws that are hardly ever seen and even more seldom spoken of? 

Aaaa. Who am I kidding? This show will be pulling a million viewers for decades yet. It's on autopilot.

I think so too. JB and MEchelle will complete their comeback to on-screen stahs, and we might even see Smugs again, although I'm sure Derick and his helpmeet are permanently off the show. There will be a VSE for Josie's wedding, eventually JB and MEchelle will figure out how (and get it legally cleared) to capitalize on their having taken in Tyler, and when the number of Duggar grandkids hits some milestone number (20? 25?) there will be a lot of episodes celebrating that. ETA: Oh, and don't forget Jeremy and Jinger who will have new adventures footage in their new home in LA.

Okay, let's hope they don't get to make money off of Tyler. But, unless the show doesn't generate enough ad revenue for TLC, it's obviously a staple in their lineup. 

Yep. The large family with extreme fundamentalist/separatist religious beliefs, who became TV stars for their "wholesome, modest family values," concealed for years that their oldest son as a teenager molested five tiny girls, including four of his sisters - and they continue to reign as TV stars as a wholesome and modest family. 

You can't make this s*!t up.

Didn’t they show Priss & David’s wedding, and also Erin & Chad’s, back during the “19 Kids” days, before any of the 19, other than Josh, were married?  They’ve run out of ideas (again) and are just reverting to copying old episodes (again).

My phone autocorrected “Priss” to “Pride.”  Hah. 

ETA: Upon thinking about this further, I actually think those weddings were more interesting because of the amount of time given to them (one episode).  There wasn’t any of this watch-the-wedding-then-the-prep-then-the-wedding-again nonsense.

Oh, yeah. I guess I remember hearing that.

This was the error of somebody who's never watched the show, then or now. So I don't know what it's been about! 

But, yeah, then -- rehash of old producers' ideas. Because the huge mob they film only has about three ideas, total, to their name. 

Maybe when they show non-Duggarling weddings, they will take the one-episode approach? I'd kind of expect that they would ....

Because they're being shown not as "here's the story of a lovely Duggarling so we're going to drag it out through multiple episodes and maybe even multiple seasons!" but as "here's an event that Duggars attended so we'll show you Duggars attending this event."

You're right about David's  and Priscilla's wedding and Erin's and Chad's wedding appearing on19K&C as well Zach's and Whitney's original wedding. (Up had Zach and Whit do a vow renowal.) However it's been said Jessica is going to be on Say Yes to the Dress. SYTTD usually shows part of the wedding of one bride getting alterations and then films a little of her ceremony, which seems to be what was filmed.
