'Breaking Amish: Return To Amish' Cast News: Kate, Jeremiah & Entire Schmucker Clan All Participating In Final Season? By Lauren DuBois

It was already revealed that Mama Mary Schmucker would no longer do seasons of Breaking Amish following the show's upcoming season, but it appears that everyone's favorite original group is all calling it quits.

In addition to Mama Mary's announcement on Facebook that she would no longer participate with the show because she was making a genuine effort to try and get back into the Amish Church, her daughter-in-law, Rebecca, took to Twitter, where she seemed to allege that she, husband Abe, Kate Stoltz, Jeremiah Raber and Sabrina High would all not do more episodes after the upcoming season.

If it is the last season for the whole group, it is unclear if the series itself (two other groups were featured on their own individual seasons) would come to a close.

As for what fans may be able to see on the upcoming season, in addition to Mary experiencing health problems, Starcasm has revealed what some of the other details may include--specifically concerning Andrew's arrest, as well as Jeremiah and Sabrina's own personal situations.

Andrew is in jail during the season, following his arrest last fall--and many, Mary included, wondered why Chapel, his cancer-stricken wife, was not also in prison as well. Unconfirmed sources told the website that Chapel had also had troubles with drugs recently, which makes some wonder if she also should be serving time.

‘Breaking Amish’ star arrested in White Township

A reality TV star got a dose of reality early today when he ran afoul of the law, according to police.
“Breaking Amish” star Jeremiah H. Raber, 35, is accused of yelling derogatory curse words at state police this morning from a vehicle while leaving a traffic stop in White Township.
Police said in a report that Raber was the passenger of the vehicle they pulled over around 2:40 a.m.
As the driver pulled away, Raber was hanging out of the window yelling the obscenities at troopers, according to reports. Police did not specify the location of the traffic stop.
Police followed the vehicle and found it parked in a driveway along Mansfield Avenue, police said.
Troopers said Raber was outside of the vehicle and screaming at the driver, who had just driven Raber home from Boomerangs Bar.
Raber was placed under arrest, and police said they will file charges of public drunkenness and disorderly conduct in Homer City District Court.
“Breaking Amish” will premiere for its fourth season on May 31.

PHOTOS of 'Breaking Amish' Abe and Rebecca’s daughters Kayla and Malika by Asa Hawks at

America’s favorite batch of dramatic former Amish (Drama-ish?) are returning to TLC on June 1 at 9/8c with the two-hour premiere of Breaking Amish: Return To Amish. Actually, the show might be more aptly titled Breaking Momish as the central story line this season will be the pregnancies of stars Rebecca Schmucker and Sabrina High and the birth of their daughters Malika and Oakley.

There seems to have been a bit of an embargo on photos of Malika and Oakley, but the floodgates have apparently opened after In Touch ran a story in their new issue introducing the newest adorable additions to the Breaking Amish cast. After that article ran, Rebecca posted a series of family photos on Facebook that not only included Malika (5 months), but also her older sister Kayla (3), who mom Rebecca had previously kept off of the show (and off of the internet for that matter).

All I have to say about those pictures is “With a name like Schmucker, they gotta be cute!” �� (And they are.)

UPDATE – Sabrina High has also got in on the baby photo posting fun! Click here to see pics of little Oakley!

Just prior to the In Touch article, Rebecca expressed her frustration at not being able to post any photos of Malika and shared some updates with fans:

I’m just dying to share photos of our precious Malika!! She is four months old now and she has her own room now upstairs across from her big sister Kayla! She is teething right now and she found her feet and loves playing with them!! She does not like her car seat because like her mom she would rather stretch out and be comfortable! She also discovered her voice and love shrieking and she thinks it’s so funny! Our two girls are amazing!! Kayla who is three is talking like she knows everything and she wants to start swimming so we want to get her started this summer.

As far as Abe and Rebecca, they appear to be adjusting to family life quite well. They’ve purchased a house and have been sharing updates on some of the work they’ve been doing inside and out on Facebook.

On May 19 Rebecca wrote, “So I’ve been shopping for Malika’s nursery now. She’s been downstairs in our bedroom so far but she’s sleeping very well and I’m transforming the spare room into her room which is fun and exciting!! Only thing I really need to find now is a crib that turns into a bed when she gets bigger!”

And Malika isn’t the only new addition to the Schmucker family! Kayla requested a puppy for her third birthday and mom and dad appear to have given in.

Abe was working for a contracting firm that does excavating, land clearing and demolition, and he recently got his Class A commercial driver’s license.

On another note, fans of Breaking Amish know that Rebecca has had mixed feelings about doing the show and sharing her personal life with so many people. She recently talked about where she is now with that struggle:

We are BACK!!! I personally do not know what to think at this point! I always stress about how I don’t like drama and yet I get dragged back into it again and again. Things don’t need to be talked about 5 times after it’s been worked out or explained but I accept the fact that it won’t end until I’m dead. The devil can be so obvious sometimes and it’s not a good feeling to know you sold your soul without knowing it. But I talk about my experience in life, hoping it will help at least one person to not make the mistakes I’ve made. God Bless you all and thank you for your time you have given to me! I love you all and wish you a happy time!

She later clarified some of her comments:

And by selling my soul I’m not referring to the show but I’m referring to my shortcomings and how I’ve failed The Lord throughout my life. I’ve been easy to manipulate and I’ve trusted too many times when I need to look out for what I really believe in and stand strong to that in my life!! I’ve let my husband down and I have let my children down and it’s the hardest thing to admit I failed but I have to be honest with myself so I can be honest with others. If I come off sounding horrible and mean, I don’t care because I will stand for what I believe in, the only way I know how.

To wrap things up, how about a Schmucker family photo featuring Rebecca, Abe, Abe’s mom Mary and dad Chester, Abe’s brother Andrew and his now wife Chapel!

The Family Research Council’s Strange Statement On Josh Duggar’s Child Molestation Confession by Zack Ford

For the past few years, Josh Duggar, eldest son of the 19 in the Duggar clan, has been the face of the Family Research Council (FRC) at rallies against LGBT equality across the country. As executive director of FRC Action, the organization’s political arm, he helped fundraise for the organization, hobnob with Republican presidential contenders, and promote its anti-LGBT talking points, including claiming that his lesbian aunt “chooses” her “lifestyle” and that LGBT people are a threat to children.

But Duggar just resigned from FRC after admitting to allegations that he molested several young girls as a teenager, including some of his sisters. Details of the police report, only filed by patriarch Jim Bob Duggar more than a year after the molestation took place, first came to light through reporting from In Touch magazine and later confirmed by TMZ. In a statement to People magazine, Josh Duggar publicly confessed to his behavior and the Duggar family also acknowledged his past mistakes on Facebook. But FRC’s official response, via President Tony Perkins, was incredibly muted.

The FRC statement, posted only on its website’s front page (as opposed to a dedicated press release page that would be archived), simply states, “Today Josh Duggar made the decision to resign his position as a result of previously unknown information becoming public concerning events that occurred during his teenage years. Josh believes that the situation will make it difficult for him to be effective in his current work. We believe this is the best decision for Josh and his family at this time. We will be praying for everyone involved.” The organization, committed to protecting children and families, never identifies the “concerning events” nor condemns Duggar’s behavior.

FRC has a well-documented history of demonizing LGBT people as being a threat to children. A 2002 document called “Homosexuality and Child Abuse,” still found on FRC’s website, claims, “The evidence indicates that homosexual men molest boys at rates grossly disproportionate to the rates at which heterosexual men molest girls.” This claim incorrectly assumes that the men who molest boys are gay, when in fact pedophilia is not motivated by sexual orientation. Male pedophiles who molest boys might be completely heterosexual; because the children are prepubescent, sexuality does not explain the disordered behavior. In 2010, Perkins, along with Senior Fellow Peter Sprigg, complained that scientists refuse to accept that there’s “a correlation between homosexuality and pedophilia.” Perkins doubled down on this claim just last year.

Given the way FRC claims that protecting children is its motivation for most of its positions, its silence on actions that Duggar admitted to is telling. As Dan Savage tweeted Thursday night, “If a gay dad did nothing after his son molested 5 girls… @FRCdc & @FRCAction would argue that no gays should be allowed to have kids.”

'19 Kids and Counting' yanked from TLC's schedule

"19 Kids and Counting" has been dropped from TLC's schedule in the wake of outrage over reality star Josh Duggar's admission that he inappropriately touched some of his sisters as a teenager, the channel announced Friday.

In a statement, the channel said it was deeply troubled and saddened by what it called a "heartbreaking situation." TLC said its "thoughts and prayers are with the family and victims at this difficult time."

The network had just run a "19 Kids" marathon on Thursday night.

Josh Duggar resigned his position at the Family Research Council Thursday after reports surfaced that he sexually assaulted four female siblings in the large family, plus an additional female victim.

"I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions," Josh said in a statement released by People, "I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God's grace, mercy and redemption."

His parents, whose family the show follows, also released a statement.

"Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives. When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes, and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong. That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before," Jim Bob and Michelle said in a statement to People Magazine.

"Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God. We pray that as people watch our lives they see that we are not a perfect family," the statement read.

The incidents date back to 2002 when Duggar would have been 14 years old. In the 33-page police report that FOX411 viewed, the name of the Duggar family members in question are redacted throughout.

The report states that Jim Bob Duggar was first alerted by one of the alleged victims in March 2002. She allegedly told Jim Bob that Josh had been touching her genitals and breasts while she was sleeping, according to the report.

The report states that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar then learned that multiple incidents like this had occurred. Jim Bob told police, when he was interviewed in 2006, that the Duggars sent their son to a Christian program at the advice of their church elders. However, later in the report Michelle Duggar states where their son was sent was "not really a training center," rather he was sent to stay with an acquaintance and do manual labor.

According to the report, Jim Bob told police he spoke with an Arkansas State Trooper in 2003 after another incident occurred. The trooper, who the police report states knew the Duggar family, explained to Josh what could happen if he continued this behavior.

The report explains that after a family friend became aware of the situation upon finding a letter that detailed the incidents that had been left in a book loaned to the friend by a member of the Duggar family, a call was made to the Child Abuse Hotline, which led to the Crimes Against Children and the Springdale Police Department investigating the case in 2006.

Josh Duggar, now 27, has three children with his wife, Anna, and one on the way. They live in Washington, D.C., where Duggar worked as a lobbyist for the Family Research Council until his resignation.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

“Just because someone desires you does not mean they value you.” –UNkNOWN

Find Your Ride Or Die: A Letter To All Ladies (by K-Dot)

“Just because someone desires you does not mean they value you.”  – @SlimDarskin

I saw this tweet on my timeline a couple of weeks ago and it caught my eye. I had a few thoughts I wanted to express on it, so I figured what better place than SBM. I know a whole heap of ladies read this site. Knowing this, I hope these words help some.

It’s darn near common knowledge that a lot of men can be extremely ambiguous when it comes to their intentions. A lot of ladies spend a bunch of time in this grey area trying to figure out “what are we?” Trust me, most guys have heard that question since high school. Today, I tell you that you don’t have to question yourself so much in regards to your stance with someone.
Often times a man tells you all he needs to tell you through his actions.

I’ve said a number of times that you have to listen to what a person is not saying. There should be no sort of confusion once you read someone’s actions. Men desire many things from a woman. His behavior towards you will lend itself to exactly what he’s desiring.

Pay close attention to the conversations you have and the things he remembers about you. To the ladies void of going on dates, pay attention to see if he ever proposes that you all go on one. Figure out what sort of treatment you want. It may annoy you to have to do so, but put it out there. If you want to go out sometimes, even if y’all split the bill, let it be known. Every guy doesn’t have the wherewithal to have that base covered.
If he values you, he’ll take your concerns under advisement without question.

Don’t ever get excited about attention. Attention is as simple as turning any man’s head. Time and effort correlates more with value. When a guy values you, you get a full complete feeling of what’s going on. Your texts get answered, your guy keeps you smiling, and he has interests in what makes you happy. In addition, he’ll have even more interest in what keeps you happy.
The truth is many men have formulas in their head that have shown to work.

They may desire women to solely sleep with. Under that motivation, they have their ways of going about it. This has created women who “fall” for that tactic; therefore, it gives his process some credence. These fellas find ways to get what they want through limited effort. Lies and excuses are fed while not enough attention is spent just feeling out the little things.You ladies just have to make sure a guy is into who you are versus what you are.

We all love butts and breasts….who doesn’t?

Just make sure that same dude wants to see you get your promotion, your master’s or whatever else is the case. In all things, let their be a balance. I think at the end of the day that’s the brass tacks of what I’m trying to say. Nothing works in this life without balance. If you’re not feeling a balance with someone you’re dating, then it’s simply something that should be addressed. Of course communication is paramount. If for no other reason, the more you communicate, the higher the likelihood you have to weed out the BS. You want to be valued more than desired. If you succeed, then you’re more than deserving.

These are my words and I make no apologies.

Alright, Alright, Alriiiight!!! and Seven other Kevin Hart Quotes You Can Use on a Daily Basis by Nick Dimengo

Image result for alright alright alrightImage result for alright alright alrightImage result for alright alright alright kevin hart

He may not be the most intimidating person on the planet. But, then again, Kevin Hart doesn’t need to be seeing how his main job is to make people laugh. Whether that means he’s on-stage and doing his comedy act or in front of the camera spewing some line that was written for him for a TV show or movie, the guy knows how to get people rolling with his jokes and personality. Over the years, Hart has seemed to just continue to get bigger and bigger, becoming a noticeable contributor on various projects or interviews that fans have seen. Regardless of your personal opinion on his delivery or jokes, in general, Kevin Hart has arguably become the best comedian in Hollywood right now. For that reason, I wanted to take some time and honor some of his finer moments that he has given from a number of different appearance he has done. Those times where he has said something that has somehow, someway stuck with people—and there’s no better way of doing so than pointing out some of his most famous sayings. He seems to be in front of a camera all the time, showing up at award shows or landing a cameo on another TV show, so there’s no escaping what comes out of his mouth—with most of it being pretty memorable. So the next time you overhear someone say one of these, just know that it was Hart who brought it to the mainstream—and that it’s completely OK to use whenever you want. These are the Kevin Hart quotes worth using.

8. Alright, Alright, Alright

Sure, this phrase was undoubtedly made most famous from Matthew McConaughey from his role in Dazed & Confused, but Kevin Hart has helped carry on the tradition of using it. Bringing up memories of his dad using drugs when Hart was younger, he jokes about how his dad would just show up to places when Kevin was a kid and always just mutter the words, “alright, alright, alright.” No matter if you’re quoting

McConaughey or Hart, the phrase is pretty funny and straight to the point—even if it has no relevance on what is going on around you.

7. Bum Bump

Describing one of the most horrid things that could happen while walking on the street, Hart talks about how he thinks it would be for a homeless person to swipe your bottom lip with his fingers. So instead of saying you have a zit that has been bothering you for the last couple days, try playing off by using the word, “bum bump” to lighten the mood a little bit, making everyone laugh that you’re breaking out because someone on the street touched you.

6. Pineapples

The word ‘pineapples’ probably isn’t what you think of when getting with your significant other, but Hart proved that it might be something worth using as a safe word. What does that mean, exactly? Well, when, I’ll call it experimenting, in the bedroom, if things get a little too awkward or uncomfortable, use pineapple as a safe word to let the other person know. It will most definitely cause a few giggles, but it’ll do the trick and help lighten the mood when you feel like it’s most needed.

5. Say it Wit Ya Chest

Having a tough time getting your point across? Next time you need to be bold and say something with conviction, say it wit ya chest! That’s the advise that Hart gives, at least, claiming that if you’re questioning what someone is saying to be false or just bashful, then challenge them into saying it with their chest out. No, don’t front, but don’t deliver something like a shy kid, either.

4. The Way My Bank Account is Set Up

For those who feel like you’re getting taken advantage of by friends who seem to be freeloading off of you anytime you go out to dinner or grab drinks, this might be a trick worth trying out. With Hart explaining how he has more money now that his popularity has grown, he doesn’t just say he’s not paying, but uses a clever excuse instead, blaming his not picking up the bill on the way his bank account is set up. Sure, no one will buy it, but chances are they will buy whatever’s on the bill when you use it enough.

3. Real, Rap Raw

One my favorite phrases to use in everyday life is, “real recognize real,” so when I heard about Kevin Hart’s rapper alter ego Chocolate Droppa using his own spin of it, “real, rap raw,” I couldn’t help but laugh. So what’s its meaning? From what I’ve gathered, it’s just a way to put things into perspective and let people know that whatever he’s about to say is pretty serious. I would advise using this towards coworkers in a meeting, but when in front of friends, it totally works.

2. No, Noooo

When you’re not quite ready to do something—or just don’t want to—rather than pout or throw a fit, use Hart’s no, nooo line to add a little humor to the situation. It might not let you do exactly what you want to, but, who knows, it might actually get you what you want? The key to this one is to overly express yourself with your facial movements, making it look like you’re a crying child who isn’t ready for whatever another person is asking—even if it’s as simple as responding to a friend asking if you’re ready to grab some food.

1. You Gon’ Learn Today

Want to really put someone in their place? Try busting out my favorite line that Kevin Hart has brought to the mainstream. Saying ‘You gon’ learn today’ with emphasis will prove that you’re probably a little more casual than you want to be, but that whatever you’re about to say is actually pretty serious. Look the person dead in the eye and put them in their place by using this and proving that you have a little bit of an attitude in getting your lesson across.
