Anna Duggar appeared on the premiere episode of Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald's three-part TLC special, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, and it seems some members of her 19 Kids and Counting family are upset about it.

While Anna Duggar surely doesn't detail the sex scandals through which Josh Duggar disgraced their family, she does indicate she was--and still is--experiencing a great deal of pain.

A source tells Entertainment Tonight that the Duggar family is quite perplexed over Anna Duggar appearing in this show.

The special is supposedly “turning into a circus” and “family members are disagreeing with a lot of what they are doing.”

It was because of Josh Duggar's first sex scandal--sexually molesting five underage girls when he was a teen--that TLC cancelled 19 Kids and Counting. Of course Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar want this new show--it could evolve into a spinoff--but they don't want more Duggar secrets being aired.

The Duggar family is divided with regard to this new TV show--especially with Anna Duggar's involvement.

“Certain members of the family are more focused on ratings and a paycheck than actually focusing on the issues at hand,” the source explains, adding that some members of the 19 Kids and Counting family have “chosen not to participate in the special out of respect to the serious ordeal the family has been going through in the last months.”

Anna Duggar was pregnant with her fourth child this past summer, when she learned Josh Duggar cheated on her with a porn star. Now that porn star is suing Josh Duggar. A recent report says the former 19 Kids and Counting star was tested for STDs following this devastating news. Fortunately, she received a clean bill of health.

The 19 Kids and Counting family should count their lucky stars that Anna Duggar hasn't disgraced their fundamental Christian family by divorcing Josh Duggar--something most people believe she should do.

Will Jill & Jessa: Counting On become the ultimate demise of the Duggar family? Will Anna Duggar stick with Josh, or will she come to her senses and kick him permanently to the curb?

Anna Duggar is surely being paid for her appearances on this TLC three-part special. Maybe she is waiting for her payday to file for divorce.
