Jessa Duggar's pregnancy was certainly the expected highlight of TLC's "19 and Counting;" however, after the news broke out about Josh Duggar's sexual abuse case, the public's attention has completely shifted to the scandal, with Jessa's pregnancy totally ignored.
This lack of publicity is apparently obvious to none other than Jessa herself. The 22-year-old is expecting her first child with Ben Seewald, and is due to give birth on November 1, which coincidentally is also the couple's first wedding anniversary. According to Daily Mail, Jessa was expecting to have all eyes on her when she broke the news. One of the sources for People Magazine shared with the publication, 'She was in such a joyous moment in her life. Instead, the show isn't there to chronicle this happy time, and even though she's posting on social media, the scandal still gets brought up by commenters. So much has changed for Jessa compared to what Jill experienced, and it can't be changed back. And that's sad for her."
Her expectations weren't really a surprise, since it was the case when her sister, Jill, gave birth and got her own special that covered her entire labor and delivery. The source later on adds, "It is now bittersweet because it's not lost on [Jessa] that Jill giving birth to Israel got an entire TLC special devoted to it. Jessa would have liked to have had the same sort of platform to give thanks, show what a miracle she feels for her child is, and express her gratitude." more >>
"Arrow" is one of the DC shows that seems to be trying to stick more to its comic origins, with more accurate changes happening in the upcoming season. Aside from stoylines, the series hasn't also been shy to introduce new character crossovers fluidly. In the last season, viewers' favorite crossover was the Flash into a number of episodes. Because of this, many fans wonder if other DC heroes will be entering the show at some point this season.
One of the desired hero appearances would be Batman. Screenrant reports that in the recent Wizard World Comic-Con, Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen also the Arrow, addressed this rumor. He does express openness to the crossover; however, it seems that DC Entertainment chief Diane Nelson is not enthusiastic about the idea as she does not want to add unnecessary character overlap. If it does happen, Amell thinks that casting their own version of Batman would be more likely. He explains, "In the same way that… [Ezra Miller's] playing the Flash in the cinematic universe — theoretically, we haven't seen him yet — I see no reason why we couldn't have our own Bruce Wayne. That's my opinion; that might not be DC's opinion, and they're the bosses." Furthermore, Amell is confident that his character will be able to handle the entrance of such an iconic DC character, although it can be really tough.
More on ambitious crossovers, Amell also talked about working with "Constantine" lead star Matt Ryan. For the followers of the series, by now, they know that the Hellblazer will be dropping by and is now known as Star City (previously named Starling City). John Constantine will be responsible for bringing back Sara Lance as the White Canary, from the Lazarus pit, following the show's current theme of mysticism and magic. This would also be the first time that a character from another network will be appearing on Arrow. more >>

After the scandalous leak of the Ashley Madison data on the internet, the marriages of many couples will never be the same again, including those of TV personalities like Josh Duggar. The "19 Kids and Counting" star was one of the 32 million people who used the website which promoted having an affair, according to CNN.
Following the scandal, the eldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar issued a statement on Thursday, Aug. 20 through the family's website that he had been unfaithful to his wife Anna, also the mother of his four kids.
"I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have been unfaithful to my wife. I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him," he said in the statement. more >>
