Members of the Duggar family are speaking out for the first time since being rocked by a series of scandals.

Among the family members slated to appear is Anna, whose husband, Josh, is at the center of the headline-grabbing controversy.

"Life over the past four months has been pretty crazy for my family," Jessa Duggar Seewald said.

This morning, there wre new revelations about how the Duggar family is coping in the wake of Josh Dugar's scandals over sexual molestation and infidelity.

Jill Duggar Dillard said, "I cry a lot of tears."

Earlier this year, 27-year-old Josh Duggar -- the older of Jim Bob and Michele's 19 children -- acknowledged allegations of molesting five girls -- including four of his sisters -- when he was a teenager.

This is the wake of the shocking news that TLC had canceled their popular show.

For months the family presented a united front. Sisters Jessa and Jill - two of the girls who's been molested - defended their brother on FOX News.

Seewald said , "I do want to speak up in his defense against people who are calling him a child molester or pedophile."

But then, another bombshell. Josh Duggar admitted to cheating on his wife after his Ashley Madison membership was revealed during the adultery website's hacking.

Now, for the first time, several family members are speaking out in TLC's new three-part special, "Jill and Jessa: Counting On."

Jill Duggar Dillard said, "You're angry and hurt and all of those emotions mixed all together."
