Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

Recommended Posts

10 minutes ago, Ohiopirate02 said:

They never released any financial information about their donations as far as I know.   Hoe much they received and how that money was spent are 2 questions we will never know the answer to. 

$12,000 appeared for his useless ministry degree, and somehow there was able to get a house fully paid for and law school tuition. I sometimes wonder just how much they raked in. I’m sure it wasn’t a ton of money but on the other hand it was probably what they would’ve made working honest jobs for a few years.

 Next time he goes in a tweet storm I wish someone would bring that up for him to ignore.

Nope. That was the first indicator to me that Derelict was shady with money.

I don’t see that post on her IG. Is it in her stories? I have no idea how to access those.

Should Derrick have known better?  Absolutely.   What was his mindset about the family, JB, Jill's feelings about the situation at that point?   In the initial stages he had just come back from an extended time in Nepal, started working a full-time job, was preparing to get married and then newly married, I suspect was a little surprised that his wife didn't show anywhere near the independence he was used to from his mom, the girls he went to college with, possibly girls he served with in Nepal, etc.   Did they not have a honeymoon baby?   It wasn't terribly long into their marriage when Josh became a scandal and subsequently the show was rebranded.   Given the turbulence and the fact Jill was likely struggling I doubt Derrick was pushing very hard to get some clarification about the situation with the show.    The spinout of all of that seems to be when the bloom was off the rose, relationships went sour and Derrick became well and truly disgruntled.  

I think the real problem started with Samuel's hospital bill, and when the Central America mission thing didn't work out and Derrick realized they needed money. Then he started doing the math on what they SHOULD be making off a show with Jill's name in the (original) title. I think they tried to talk to Jim Bob about money and got shot down, and that's when the rebellion started. And I don't blame them one bit, but I wish Derrick would stick to the facts and stop giving conflicting stories. And he also needs to stop liking tweets just to stir the pot. These are his in-laws, and he will need to be around them eventually.

You took the words out of my mouth. I'm wondering when this officially crosses into "milking it" territory?

Not necessarily.  People do stop contact with family sometimes.

Derick openly shared about asking TLC for help with Israel’s hospital bill, not Samuel’s. By the time Sam was born that relationship was non existent. His reasoning was that TLC made plenty of money airing Israel’s birth episode. Sam’s birth was not aired, probably not filmed.

Wow. You guys are harsh. Couldn’t it just be the fact that the person who sexually abused her as a child, who also happens to be her brother, was arrested for child pornography and it’s been difficult? Maybe knowing her parents are bending over backwards to help him again has triggered some issues and she’s spending some extra time in therapy this week so help with dishes is appreciated? Or maybe a friend came by to bring her flowers to cheer her up and just did the dishes because she wanted to help. Is really the only option that she’s a Duggar so she’s lazily milking it and really isn’t struggling? 

Not the only option, obviously, just the first that came to mind.

Because I tend to judge people by the actual words they say and the things they do/have done instead of playing armchair psychologist. So...*shrug*

 I don’t think Jill has ‘Friends’ In the traditional sense. A friend is just someone who does something for you.

Cousin Amy seems to be a friend. As is Jessa. The two sisters are very different but I think they do have a bond.

I think she does have some friends. Maybe not lifelong ones but perhaps a neighbor, classmates of Derrick, or a parent from Izzy's school.

Yeah, this is really what I was thinking. It's not active grifting like when she and Derick set up that bogus nonprofit, but the Duggar definition of friendship seems to be that friends do stuff for them and the Duggars reciprocate by "fellowshipping" and praying with those friends.

It's kind of tough to overlook 20+ years of making sure everything is public and documented in the media as you constantly grift.

Why is is necessary for her to brag & post photos?  Can't she just sincerely thank these "sweet friends" privately and be done with it?  Joy isn't publicly boasting about how supported & adored she is by somebody spending money & time on her with flowers and housework.  Joy has 2 kids also, younger so I'm thinking she's a little stressed.  Jessa doesn't even see the need to put herself out there and make this Josh thing about her.  3 kids there, plus pregnant.  

We get it Jill.  You alone are worthy of support and kind gestures, so make certain you post all instances so you can rub it in the faces of your sisters that THEY aren't getting the goodies that only you deserve.  

But extra points for all the bible verses included in the posts.  Nice "humble" touch.

I think it would have taken Jill a long time to learn how to have friends since she was never really allowed friends as a child.

Jill did show a few pics pre covid of doing things with a friend, taking the kids to the library and lunch and things. They were in a small group at their church  that was shown once. Probably still are in a church small group. Bringing meals and helping with housework, childcare, etc would be exactly what the small group would be expected to do.

If she is letting people in her home now they must be known and trusted friends on some level. If it was me, I certainly wouldn't be letting just anyone in my home in the moment. Worried they might tweet out what I said about the situation or alert InTouch or someone how I am feeling or my thoughts on the situation.

I will say if Jill had ever posted on taking flowers or a meal to a friend, I myself would have had the thought she was making someone's crisis about herself since her listed job is to "create content"

Jill is not like Michelle at all. Shes not farming out the care of Izzy and Sam to older "buddy" children. She's an active mother. 

She....grifters every chance she gets and doesn’t have reciprocal relationships with outsiders.  I mean, it takes a long way to plunge to Michelle’s depths, But there are some similarities.

How does she grift? She's has brand sponsors but that's typical of SM influencers.

I'm right down the middle with Jill. I'm glad she has support, and it has only been about a week. But this will be going on for months, so unless this exacerbated an existing physical or mental illness, I suspect the support will decrease over time. 

As far as Jill posting 'thank-yous', I get that. I do it and I see it done all the time on FB. The thing is, I'm also tagged in 'thank yous' from others. That's something I don't recall seeing about Jill.

I'm unfamiliar with IG, if Jill is tagged in an IG post, will it show up on her page?

Happy mail is typical of SM influencers. So are unboxing videos of gifts. You should never follow BIg Brother contestants. After every season they usually do an unboxing IG live of all the gifts ppl sent them. I don't get it but whatever makes people happy.

No, Jill's Instagram page will only show her posts and the stories she saves.  I've never searched a handle in Instagram to see if tagged posts show up that way.  The feed is nothing like Facebook where you can see where your friends were tagged in a post.  

The thank you posts that Jill did are in her stories and those delete after 24 hours.  It's not permanent.

Happy mail also happens to just about anyone famous enough.  A writer I follow on Twitter has known interests and people will send her items related to those interests all the time.  She also keeps up an Amazon wish list for those fans who like to buy her cats toys and treats.  People like to send their faves gifts.  Jill having a way for them to do that with their PO box is not a bad idea.

I don’t have social media for just this reason.

Just yesterday Lebron got some "happy mail" of some cognac and he plugged it in his IG stories. It's sort of a package deal -- I send you stuff, you plug my stuff.

I don't see her stories as bragging.  I see someone who has many people to thank but not enough left in the tank to thank each individually.  So she posts two pictures thanking them for what they did.  Those stories are the 21st century version of the thank you note for millennials and gen-z.  

Except thank you notes were private and not posted for millions of strangers. SM also allows for posts /messages that are private, but they still post publicly.

There's something so disturbing about how Jill is being painted as the "good" victim in all of this and therefore everything she does is honest and pure and above reproach. She's not evil incarnate, but damn, it's clear the girl learned how to use social media to her advantage.

 I’ve been critical of Jill today. But I will say props to her for going on the zoom call. Not everyone would want to face their abuser, even indirectly like this. I really truly do hope therapy will help her get through this and grow as a person. It already has helped a lot.

I work with a lot folks and have heard a lot of crazy and disturbing things. I have never heard anything close to what I briefly skimmed in the Josh thread. I hope Jill, the 3 other sisters and all her siblings are okay after today. This has got to be so tough for all of them.
