A new clip from TLC’s special, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, gives viewers an idea of how the Duggars are handling the tough subject of their eldest brother, Josh.

The clip features a brief snippet of Anna Duggar, Josh’s wife, telling the camera how "heartbroken" she was upon learning of her husband’s scandals.

Heartbroken may be the understatement of all time.

Between his infidelities and his addiction to pornography, it was a rude awakening for the 28-year-old mother of four small children.

It shows, to say the least. The poor thing’s eyes are completely bloodshot, and she stared off-camera as if to say, "WELP."

Jessa and Jill Duggar also teared up on camera when asked about their brother, but emphasized how difficult it must be for their sister-in-law.

Josh checked into rehab this fall after it was revealed that he was an active user of the infamous extramarital dating site, Ashley Madison.

He is currently seeking treatment for a sex addiction. 

Duggar’s email address was perhaps the most infamous one revealed to be registered with the site after hackers performed an enormous data dump.

Snooki‘s husband, Jionni Lavalle and Josh Taekman, husband of The Real Housewives of New York‘s Kristen Taekman, were also outed.

Duggar’s stripper/porn star mistress, Danica Dillon is reportedly suing him for physical and emotional injuries when they had sex earlier this year.

Rumors claim that Anna is thisclose to divorcing Josh, a decision that would obviously go against the couple’s strong Christian beliefs.

Whether she actually summons the strength to do that remains to be seen, but we can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t praise her for it.

Jill & Jessa: Counting On premieres this December on TLC.
