Duggar family preventing the more accepting cousin's reality show from being made

The Duggar family is not down with cousin John Andrew Studdard getting his own reality show after producers approached him. John thinks it's because of his outspoken nature toward transphobe and homophobe, Derick Dillard. Studdard’s mother, who is Jim Bob Duggar‘s cousin, and father said they will cut him off financially if he says anything again.

Producers were hoping to do a show with Studdard, a more accepting member of the Duggar family, but all of the immediate family declined to be in it [or give a green light? idk].

“He wants to show his life with his friends and the volunteer work he’s passionate about,” the insider said. “He wants to build a platform to spread awareness for causes and build a bigger empire than his cousins.

After Derick made homophobic comments, Studdard told him he needed to keep his mouth shut and half of America doesn't like him. If he were to get his own show, it'd be more diverse and show a better part of the south.

“I have a unique storyline,” he said. “Being Asian adopted into an all-caucasian family living in the South. My show will be the real South, good style and a lot of colorful personalities. I could carry a show of my own with topics that could reach all audiences. I’m way more fun!”
