After a highly successful season, TLC will be airing a two-part reunion of Breaking Amish, where some of the ongoing questions about the cast’s credibility will be addressed.
The show, of course, was set to follow four young Amish men and women, as well as one Mennonite woman, as they left their respective communities to experience the outside world, specifically New York City and all it has to offer, and decide if they wanted to continue down their respective religious paths. As TLC described it in a recent press release:
As they go through a series of firsts and get serious about careers, romance, and the possibility of a life away from everything and everyone they've ever known for good, they experience a number of highs and lows throughout their telling journey.
But, Was the Journey Fake?
Almost immediately, charges that the cast was phony began hitting chat rooms and media reports. With the upcoming reunion, TLC explains that the cast will have the opportunity to set the record straight about their past, as well as to confront each other about the many happenings in New York City. TLC indicates that topics broached will include Rebecca facing down Sabrina and Kate regarding that infamous denture-finding scene, as well as the recent “witchcraft-scene” allegations Sabrina and Jeremiah made against Kate. The reunion will be hosted by NBCs Michelle Beadle, and all five cast members—Jeremiah, Kate, Rebecca, Sabrina and Abe—will participate. Previous marriages, children, arrests, and drunken nights out on the town—all will be addressed in this two-part reunion. According to TLC, “[I]t's a raw discussion revealing intimate details about their lives and relationships.”
Additionally, the cast will discuss where they currently stand with friends and family, and whether or not any of them decided to return to their previous lives.
"Party Time" for Rebecca and Abe
TLC describes tonight’s new episode, “Party Time,” as follows:
Sabrina uncovers letters from her birth Mother while Kate gets a dose of reality. Abe and Rebecca struggle to plan their wedding, while Jeremiah and Sabrina plan a bachelor and bachelorette party the two might never forgive or forget in Atlantic City.
