She said: “It caused a lot of frustration in our marriage. Especially early on, where he would feel a certain way about filming something.” As much as the couple didn’t want to participate in the show, Jill said they had to. The author also touches on these struggles in her upcoming book Counting the Cost. In the book, Jill admitted that she started to “feel like a burden.” She was raised in the Institute in Basic Life Principles church which taught children to obey their parents. This caused her to buckle under the commands of her father Jim Bob, 58, forcing her to participate in the reality shows even when she wanted to stop. Jill said that filming came in between her and Derick, and they started fighting over the show. She told People: “No matter your age, you are to obey your parent’s wishes and you even have to ask them for their blessing for any major moment in your life.” PUSHING THEM APART They both agreed that Jim Bob attempted to drive a wedge between them and their marriage. Derick said: “Whenever we were at odds with what her dad thought we should be doing with filming, he would say things that would be very damaging. “He would weaponize the relationship and say, ‘Is this you Jill, or is this you, Derek? Are you leading your wife astray and doing things that are not supportive of marriage?’ And I think that was a red flag.” Eventually, Jill felt the need to pick sides after the arguments with Derick became too deep. She said: “When I saw how it was affecting our marriage, I think that was another wake-up call for me. “It was like, okay, we need to either fight this battle together, or it’s going to rip us apart. So yeah, we had to join forces at that point.” ALL PAIN, NO GAIN Jill touched on some of these issues in the Amazon Prime docuseries Shiny Happy People which featured her family and the IBLP church. In the doc, she claimed that she did not receive any payment for her appearances on her family’s TLC reality shows. The couple said that they had little to no say in what was featured on the show, and they claimed they were left out of negotiations and weren’t compensated for their appearance. In the episode, Derick said: “We had no choice in the fact that 4.4million people watched our wedding.” Jill was also forced into being filmed during the birth of her first child after the network pushed them to film it. After, Jill asked TLC to help cover the financial expenses of the birth, but they were told no. The network already paid Jim Bob, and therefore they would not be paying any additional costs to the couple. Derick claimed: “They said they paid the family. Paid the family means we don’t get anything at that point. They said ‘Well, we paid your dad so take it up with him.’” Jill added: “I never received any payout. No check. No cash. Nothing. For seven and a half years of my adult life, I was never paid.” Courtesy of Prime VideoThey said the stress from filming the TLC shows caused them to fight[/caption] Simon and SchusterJill also talks about these issues in her upcoming book Counting the Cost[/caption] Amazon Content Services LLCOn the Amazon docuseries, the couple revealed that they were not paid for their reality TV appearances[/caption]
