‘Counting On’ News: Derick Dillard Headed to School, To Actually Get A Real Job

Derick Dillard of Counting On and 19 Kids and Counting fame is going to actually go out and get a real job. Derick got fired by TLC because he wouldn’t stop ranting about Jazz Jennings. At the same time, he was talking bad about TLC. They had finally had enough and decided to cut ties with the reality star.

Derick Dillard’s big plans revealed

The Facebook page Duggar Family News: Life is not all pickles and hairspray does a great job of figuring out the Duggar dirt. In a new post, they are sharing all about how Derick is going back to school. They had a ton of speculation all day about what is going on. It turns out that Derick Dillard is going back to school. It will actually be law school. Now that Derick has lost his reality TV job he is going to need money to take care of his family. Jill doesn’t have a job either, but none of the Duggar women work outside of the home.

It is going to cost $16,000 a year. You can assume that Jim Bob Duggar might pay for that because he can afford it. There is also speculation that the church might pay for it and then use him as their lawyer. Derick can’t have that kind of money seeing he hasn’t been working. Instead, he has just been doing missions and he is now giving that up. It is pretty surprising that Derick and Jill would quit doing mission trips.

This news just came out, but so far Jill and Derick Dillard aren’t talking about it at all. It would be great to hear what they have to say about it all.

Will this be on Counting On?

You can easily assume that this won’t air on Counting On. Derick isn’t on the show at all and they really don’t show Jill anymore either. There is no reason that they would show this unless the family just talks about it. Jill and Derick might end up putting out a statement of their own.

It is really surprising that Derick is getting a job and moving on. Sometimes you have to grow up, though. Don’t miss watching new episodes of Counting On when it returns to TLC on July 30, 2018, with new episodes. You won’t be seeing Jill and Derick, but there will be a lot of courtships, babies and weddings.

Come back to Soap Dirt to follow Derick Dillard and all the other cast members of Counting On. With the new season coming, there is going to be a ton of great news on this family.

I grew up watching "General Hospital" with my mom and once I started working from home found a love for it again and can't miss an episode.
