Jessa Duggar Seewald and Jill Dillard are clearly excited to let the world into their respective expansions of the Duggar family on TLC's upcoming three-part special, Jill and Jessa: Counting On.

Jessa Duggar Seewald will share insight into her life as a wife and now a new mother. Her wedding was a major event for the Duggars and she quickly became a mother to the couple's son, Spurgeon Elliot.

Jill Duggar Dillard will share her life as a fairly new mom and the life that her and her husband have created as missionaries.

However, it seems the focus may not entirely be in Jill and Jessa Duggar. In a preview for the special, Anna Duggar is shown to have a part in the show.

Anna Duggar is, of course, dealing with major issues in her marriage to Josh Duggar, who recently lost his job and had to move back near his family after admitting to the molestation of five young girls when he was a teenager, a recent affair and a pornography addiction.

Josh Duggar is in a faith-based rehab facility, but it looks like Anna Duggar might be speaking of the ordeal on a platform that some Duggar family members don't find appropriate.

While Jessa Duggar Seewald and Jill Dillard seem pleased to share the spotlight with the struggling Anna Duggar, some family members are boycotting the special by refusing to appear in it.

So, while the specific family members haven't been named, it will be easy to figure out.

A source close to the family reportedly said that the special is "turning into a circus" and "family members are disagreeing with a lot of what they are doing."

Especially putting any focus on Anna Duggar "at a time like this."

Do you think Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald should have shared the special with a distraught Anna Duggar while she is still dealing with these issues?
