When asked about all these things, they five responded collectively with, “so what?” An attitude that seemed to express that they believed the public were the idiots. So what they drank before the show? So what they wore bikinis before the show?  So what they knew each other before the show?

Well here’s the so what. The fact that they dressed in English clothing before this show make the many scenes about them buying English clothes completely inauthentic. The fact that Abe and Rebecca initially lied to the cameras about not knowing each other — and then eventually confessed that they actually did know each other as “friends” makes their entire courtship fake. Jeremiah taking driving lessons as if he’d only ever ridden in  a horse and buggy undermines his big taxi driver plot of the season. That’s the so what.

The Lies Of The Breaking Amish Reunion Proves They Didn’t Need To Script The Season

Just when I thought I had everyone on Breaking Amish figured out, Rebecca Byler drops the fact that she has a baby girl during the season finale. Sure we found out a few episodes ago that she’s a divorced lady, but she conveniently left out the fact that she’s also a mother. A MOTHER! That’s a huge detail about someone. Especially about someone who claims to be a sheltered Amish woman with no idea about the outside world. Sure having a child doesn’t suddenly make you worldly, but it certainly does strip away some of the innocence.Read the whole recap right here

She’s all like, “um Jeremiah I had fun having reality show relations with you for the camera, but I’m in love with Harry now. He’s Baptist, so yeah.” And Jeremiah’s all like, “but we hooked up in NYC and I thought we had something. I came all the way here, without calling or asking first so even though my anger’s irrational and I mistakenly think I’m being romantic right now, I still expect a hand job.”

Just when I started feeling safe living in New York City, Breaking Amish reminds me that Satan lives here. No matter where you live in the city and where you go, Satan will always be with you. Sometimes he poses as the hot dog vendor with hot dogs that smell too good to be true and other times he poses as the TLC camera crew. And sometimes, when he’s feeling especially vindictive, he’s just the pigeon that craps on you while you’re walking to work. Oh Satan! You do have the sickest sense of humor! (So, apply to work here whenever you’re ready!)
Well looks like TLC heard about these rumors and decided to address them —  and they decided to address them somewhat vaguely in a statement from the network that’s currently excerpted on The Hollywood Reporter.

“There is a lot of information floating around about the group featured on Breaking Amish,” reads a network statement. “Much of it is not true, but some of it is — and is addressed in upcoming episodes.”

Although I appreciate the fact that they’re acknowledging these rumors, I don’t really understand what they’re saying. Either the people featured on the show left the Amish community for the first time, or they didn’t. I don’t really see the grey area here.

They’re just trying to see how many rules they can break now that they’re out from under their parents’ watchful eyes.


Like freshmen in college, they’re going to go to the extremes trying to prove how mature they are — and if they’re anything like the college freshmen I know, they won’t stop until someone gets their stomach pumped out on Halloween while dressed as a slutty cupcake.
