Is 'Return to Amish' Fake? The Cast Has Faced Controversy Before
It hasn't been easy for the members of the original Breaking Amish cast to adapt to their new ex-Amish and ex-Mennonite lives during this season of Return to Amish . After seven episodes full of births, brawls, and bar hopping, it's clear that having the support of each other has made the transition a lot smoother. Still, judging by the teaser for this week's reunion special, there's plenty of drama to go around with this dysfunctional family.
Surprisingly, the Return to Amish cast doesn't seemed to have been involved in too much controversy outside of the show, which is quite different from the first time around. When Breaking Amish premiered in 2012, many questioned the legitimacy of the show and speculated that Abe, Rebecca, Jeremiah, Kate, and Sabrina had been living less-than-Amish lives for some time, even though TLC originally stated that these young men and women would be leaving their religious communities for the first time. The cast has addressed the rumors in varying degrees throughout its three seasons on TLC, but the reunion show, which airs Sunday night, is always a good venue to address rumors and scandals that have cropped up since the show aired. Here's some of what the Return to Amish cast has had to defend themselves against over the years.
