Jill Duggar Opens Up About Brother's Molestation Scandal: 'I Still Cry A Lot'
Jill Duggar admitted that she still cries about her brother's molestation scandal as she opened up for an upcoming TLC series.
Alongside her sister Jessa Seewald, Jill spoke about their brother Josh in a newly-released one-minute sneak preview for their series, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, which airs in December.
It will be the sisters' first foray into reality TV since their brother admitted molesting underage girls as a teenager. TLC canceled the family's show, 19 Kids and Counting, after the reports emerged this summer.
"The whole world was shocked," said 24-year-old Jill, whose married name is Jill Dillard. "You're angry and hurt and all those emotions all mixed together."
As she wiped her eyes, she added: "I cried a lot of tears - I still do. I know I'm hurting."
Jessa, 22, who is expecting her first child, added: "Here I am, the most joyful time of my life, newly married, baby on the way and then... We were devastated. Like, we couldn't believe it. You have to wonder how did this happen."
In August, reports emerged that Josh Duggar had accounts on Ashley Madison, a website for cheaters. After admitting that he had cheated on his wife Anna, he checked himself into a rehab center.
TLC announced the new specials with the Duggars in September.
Jill added in the clip: "We're excited for what the future holds."
