Just a few weeks ago we dished to you all the gory details that the Breaking Amish producers didn’t want anyone to know. They obviously have received enough criticism from fans to address the issues, and have planned a two part reunion special set to air in November. There are a few clips surfacing that show the Breaking Amish crew hinting at answering a few of our burning questions.
When the show originally aired, TLC claimed that the five cast members were SUPPOSEDLY making a break for it and fleeing the Amish life to New York. We were all under the assumption that these people had just recently left the Amish; that they were discovering New York and the modern world for what we thought was the first time. Unfortunately, there have been quite a few dissidents emerging claiming they’ve known the stars prior to filming, and that the whole shebang is staged. Photos have surfaced of Abe and Rebecca holding a child we presume they share; this photo also shows Rebecca with her natural teeth, so it is definitely before filming occurred. We also found an arrest record for Abe, where he was arrested in Kentucky for being drunk in public. Marriage records also show Rebecca being married to someone other than Abe until 2011.
Jeremiah’s past is is also a mess, with domestic issues, divorce, and child support skeletons lurking in his closet. Even his ex-wife spoke out about the drama between her and Jeremiah, saying “The kids and I suffered for years at the hands of this man,” she said, “We went through multiple things.” and later went so far as to say “This show is completely fake.” We shall see what happens at the reunion with Jeremiah!
It seems that there’s even more to Sabrina than we thought-it turns out she was already married, and she’s no stranger to TV-she appeared on the Discovery Documentary, “Amish at the Altar”.
Frankly, I think ALL fans are excited to hear at least a part of what we hope is the truth. It’s obvious that they had a hard time finding real Amish people to agree to be filmed leaving the Amish, but I think everyone has realized that this show is faker than we’d all originally imagined, and it’s only fair that TLC gives us at least a little explanation!
The two part special will air Sunday, Nov. 11 and Sunday, Nov 18th at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
