The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

Recommended Posts

Jessa has a streak of awareness and self-preservation most of the brood doesn’t. She’s just smart enough to know that big fish in little pond > minuscule fish in enormous pond.

 I keep wondering when Jinger is going to figure out just how invisible she and RFP really are.

She'll have to think her way past RFP's insistence that they're breakout stars. And I wonder whether that's something she could actually do at this point, this early in her headship-based marriage and in her big move away from home...

I also wonder whether RFP's as delusional as some of his presentation suggests -- like the breakout star thing -- or whether he realizes what a long shot the quest for profitable fame is so he's mainly whistling past the graveyard at this point.

What's going to happen to the breakout stars when the show goes off the air and everyone forgets all about them. I don't think JereMe is going to like that.

These two are probably already angling for their own show. Probably have TLC on speed dial to pitch their ideas on a daily basis.

I hate that I think that photo is adorable and Jinger looks beautiful and happy.

I don't think that's any cause for self-doubt! She does look beautiful and happy. And it is a cute picture. 

I think Jer is almost certainly a massive sexist at this point. And, to me, that limits the kind and extent of actual worthwhile love a guy can have toward women in his life. But Jingle grew up fully believing that sexist views on the part of men are God's sign that they're good men. So obviously she has no reason to imagine that her husband's views of women's potential are limiting for her.

Ugh. These two make me sick.

If Jinger "wants" to be an influencer or a semi-influencer, why does she not do something within the photography world? That would be believable at least. Her clown make-up, stupid baking pictures, skin care products or whatever the hell she "sells" are just not believable.

I am guessing because her poser husband does not "want" her to pick her own interest and use that to her benefit.

And, I am sticking to that.

If she were doing the photography and featuring it, it would be a nice change of pace and seem less try-hard. She could frame it as, "Look at all the cool stuff in California I get to take pics of!" I'd rather see that than "spontaneous couple pictures obviously taken by a third party because that's not fucking weird at all" and "Famewhore wants free food photo op."

Yes, exactly !! They are try-hard. I think that's what irks me the most. Be yourself, and the rest will come naturally.

So where the hell is Jinger during that “interview”?

 I am completely mystified as to what either one of them has to say on camera, especially since RFP is keeping his Chockful O’Hatred religious training way on the down low.

”Los Angeles sure is big.”

”Los Angeles sure is different than Arkansas.”

”Lissy sure is growing up fast.”

”Nice weather.”

”No I don’t miss my family.”

Seriously....what else? They are vapid. Also vacuous. Also venal, at least Jer is. I still believe Jinger is just that clueless.

Kate Gosselin frequently used the term family to describe the film crew.  No, there is real family.  And there are people who work for an exploitative production company and network.

They featured Scott and his wife quite a bit in the China trip episode because of her delivery.  He seemed like somewhat of a flake.

I thought she gave birth at a hospital in China. I thought I saw at least a picture of her at the hospital. I’m sure other posters know more about this than I do. They are crazy if they allowed those ignorant teens to help deliver the baby. To be fair, a Duggar within a 1,000 mile radius of an incident is “helping” in their minds.

We've seen a full length pic of Jinger not that long ago. Definitely not pregnant. I saw Joy yesterday on Carlin's story from the side (she was at the stove). Hard to tell with her because she was wearing an ugly schmatta. She starts showing right away, so something may be up there.

If Jinger were pregnant, RFP would have been pawing her abdomen in that Valentine’s Day photo...unless they’re completely bypassing what is possibly the most sacred of all Duggar traditions.

It looked to me that they were hiding Jinger's midsection in that photo. Jeremy would keep it a secret if he thought it would make better ratings.

As far as viewing the filming crew as "family", I think in the case of the Duggars it may actually not be far from the truth. We've seen how detached Michelle has been pretty much the entire series; Jim Bob checks in once in a while; the elder girls have to look after the younger ones, but they're also kind of brought up to view each other as a potential snitch and enemy. That doesn't foster a lot of warmth and caring. Some of the film crew have been around, what, fifteen years or so? That's a signficant time- several of the youngest Duggar offspring don't even know what life was like before the show... these camerapeople have been there since their birth.

"I love blueberry Earl Gray doughnuts! I mean--I did when I had my endorsement--now I don't eat doughnuts. I just like ice cream. . . .  Do you think Ben and Jerry's will give me a marketing deal? Or maybe they'll give Jinger one about ginger-flavored ice cream? That's witty, don't you think? No? You don't think they'd affiliate with us? Rats. Do you like my pocket squares? I don't eat them, but they're pretty much my favorite thing ever. . . . Kanye's my special celebrity friend. I mean, I don't really know him, but I feel like we have a lot in common. School? What are you--? Oh yeah that school. It's going. Did we talk about my pocket squares yet?"

Hmmm, some mainstream music ... and Cade.

 

well, maybe they’ll inadvertently hear some other Ben Folds songs and go full on rage and bitterness and beauty and cleverness. And a fair amount of swearing.

one can hope. Ben Folds is awesome but his songs definitely span a wide range from lovely and tender to angry and bitter.

PubliciTEE will most likely get cuter as her hair grows out and she loses the baby fat.  Of course she'll always have the most bespoke and exclusively on-trend outfits and accessories, so she has that going for her.  JereME would never allow his little prop to look anything less that completely camera-ready at all time!

Note to Jer: Waving your kid around at the camera as you call the coffee "amazing" at coffee shop after coffee shop after coffee shop after coffee shop after coffee shop doesn't make you a coffee connoisseur who'll soon collect coffee-curious followers by the million and land a major influencer gig for one or two of those shops. It just sounds kinda lame. And desperate after a while. And boring.

At the risk of coming across as naive, the prop, propertee, and publicitee monikers make me feel uncomfortable. It’s OK to pile on the adults. Felicity is an innocent child.

agree - I am also uncomfortable with giving such names, or using such names for a child.

it is a one thing to call Jer RFP or whatever but felicity is a toddler.

Not saying this to offend other posters here - just stating my own discomfort with it.
