The Duggars are their own worst enemy!
Just a week after TLC finally cancelled 19 Kids & Counting, more details about the show's axing have come to light and it seems like Jim Bob Duggar is at the center of the drama! In fact, the patriarch might be the reason why Jessa and Jill Duggar won't have a spin-off!

A source revealed his feelings on a spin-off:
"He absolutely wanted to be back on TV and was never thrilled about the show suddenly shifting focus."
Hmm, considering the show was on the air for seven years, we think the franchise was due for a makeover! In the end, we guess Jim didn't want to lose control…
While Josh Duggar's crimes of molestation were the catalyst for the show's removal, Jill's recent move abroad also hindered production of the potential spin-off. As for Jessa, an insider explained:
"Jessa is clearly one of the stars in the family: beautiful, smart, strong-willed. She may be slightly more free-spirited than your average Duggar, but she is firmly and centrally a part of the family, as is her husband."
Yep, it looks like the spin-off is dead in the water. Some things just aren't meant to be!
So, are you disappointed by the spin-off news?
