The second and final part of the reunion specials "Breaking Amish: The Shunning Truth" provided the last chance for the show to address rumors that substantial parts of the show were fake. Allegations had been made that the participants not really being fresh out of their Amish and Mennonite communities, and that a pair of them had been previously married and had a child together. But the cast basically refused to answer those questions.
Abe and Rebecca pointedly refused to say if Abe was the father of Rebecca's baby. In fact, they took the opportunity to insult host Michelle Beadle in Dutch.
"Stop talking about the baby," Abe said to the host. "Before I get angry. Do. You. Understand. English!"
"I’m not gonna tell you anything about it anymore," Rebecca echoed.
This whole situation left Deadline wondering what the point of these reunion specials was, if not to address any of the controversies surrounding the show. If the cast simply refused to answer the questions everyone has, then why bother to air the specials at all?
