Anna Duggar may be forced to appear on Jill & Jessa: Counting On--especially if it becomes a 19 Kids and Counting spinoff--as a means of supporting her children in the aftermath of Josh Duggar's sex scandals.

The Christian Post reports that many fans who saw Anna on the first episode of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, noted how frail she appears. It's been a hellish summer and fall for the mom of four, who has been forced to raise her four children as a single mom since Josh Duggar entered a faith based rehab this summer for his "sexual sins."

Jim Bob Duggar reportedly offered Anna Duggar a home to stay in since she and Josh Duggar sold their Arkansas home shortly after his second sex scandal made news this summer. She allegedly didn't accept the offer and is believed to be staying at the Duggar family home for now.

To make matters worse, Josh Duggar was recently named in a lawsuit by a porn star--Danica Dillon--with whom he cheated on Anna Duggar while she was pregnant with their fourth child, daughter Meredith Grace.

Anna Duggar has way more on her plate than any young mom should have to handle. Members of her family--who are devout Christians, too, and don't believe in divorce--have urged her to divorce Josh Duggar.

The next episode of Jill & Jessa: Counting On airs on TLC on December 13th. It will be interesting to see if fans learn more about Anna Duggar's situation--and her state of mind--at that time.

Do you think Anna Duggar is appearing on the new reality show as a means of supporting her children, or is she doing so at the urging of in-laws Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar?
