Amy Duggar and her husband Dillon King are already seeking the help of marriage counselors. The pair has been married for a little over a year, but will be one of the newest couples joining the upcoming Season 7 of WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.”
The network announced the casting news Thursday, writing in a press release that Amy and Dillon’s arrival at the “Boot Camp” house will be a shock to the other couples since the pair hasn’t been husband and wife for that long. They tied the knot in Bentonville, Arkansas, on Sept. 6, 2015. “Upon arrival, their lack of respect for each other is apparent,” the press release reads.
In a super-trailer for Season 7 (seen above) the “19 Kids And Counting” star is seen describing a scary altercation in which she says a guy put his hands on her. “He picked me up by my throat,” she says. “All the way to the ceiling.” It’s not clear if Amy was describing an altercation she had with her husband.
Although it appears Amy and Dillon are having a few issues on the WEtv show, on Tuesday the aspiring singer shared a sweet message about her husband. “Laying in bed, we both couldn’t sleep so we are holding hands and doing a Bible study,” she posted. “Sometimes I just Thank.God for such a good man.” In October, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s niece also shared a photo of her kissing Dillon.
Joining Amy and Dillon on “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” are “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” alum PreMadonna and her fiancé Joey Thomas, “The Bachelorette” couple Ashley and JP Rosenbaum, “Mob Wives” star Renee Graziano and her longtime love Joey Gambino and former “Bad Girls Club” star Gabi Victor and her baby daddy Victor Tarrats.
Season 7 of “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” will premiere on WEtv Jan. 6 at 9 p.m. EST. Season 6 is currently airing.
