'Breaking Amish' Reunion episodes to feature interviews, rumor allegations

 

Around a month ago, TLC announced that upcoming episodes of their hit reality series 'Breaking Amish' would address the rumors that the show isn't based in reality at all. Today, it was revealed when that address would take place: during two one-hour specials on November 11 and November 18.Breaking Amish title card

As Ted Blanchard reported here, online evidence seemed to fly in the face of the cast biographies listed on the show's main website, not to mention entirely contradict the claims made by the show's advertising campaign. Contrary to the schtick of the program (focused on young people who have never before lived in mainstream society, let alone New York City), photos online suggested that several of the cast had not only lived in the city, but had married, divorced, and had children before the series began.

 

The special episodes will feature the entire 'Breaking Amish' gang, Jeremiah, Kate, Abe, Rebecca, and Sabrina, being interviewed by Michelle Beadle ('Access Hollywood'). While not exactly known for hard-hitting questions, Beadle is no stranger to pumping up a potential controversy. In a statement released today, TLC explained that the specials will allow the cast members to "speak candidly about their experience in New York and address all of the swirling rumors and allegations" Beadleregarding the possible fraudulent claims about the series. "They also disclose where their relationships currently stand with their family and friends," the statement assures; "[they will] tackle the rumors and questions about the authenticity of their Amish and Mennonite backgrounds."

 

While Hot Snakes Media produced 'Breaking Amish' for TLC, Peacock Productions is handling the reunion specials. Given the ratings smash that the series became (and America's undying lust for controversy), expect big numbers put up by TLC on November 11th and 18th.

'Breaking Amish' airs Sundays at 10:00pm EST on TLC.

I just watched the whoile season 1 series of breaking amish yesterday including their interview. While watching i liked Abe among them all but during the reunion i got so disappointed with Abe and Rebecca. They are just so rude to the interviewer. I was planning on watching season 2 as i was always curious about Amish people but after seeing Abe and Rebecca being so rude, i decided to stop watching. Come on! when you signed for the contract you should expect everything to come up and be like any other celebrity who can handle these things professionally.

I agree. The interviewer was disrespectful and annoying.

There is no need for Michelle Beadle to be so brash. The interview should respect what the group wishes to reveal, not what they are pumped to reveal. There was little respect by the interviewer for the group. I found Michelle's tactics very controlling and it made the interview very sensitive and difficult for them. I saw the 2 hour program on channel#20 last night. They have had major adjustments trying to find their place in life.
