Breaking Amish Is Nothing But Lies(LONG BLOG)

Oct 6, 2012 by koolmanmadden
All of the cast members are faking it for the cameras. Rebecca and Abe are two young cast members who, like Raber, claim to be interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer. They share a car ride to the airport and say they only know each other tangentially from belonging to the same church. In an interview, Abe says he's looking forward to "getting to know Rebecca" a little more. On a recent episode, they are shown going on their first date.

It turns out that Abe and Rebecca had already been dating for a while, living among the "English," and have a child together.

Abe's brother Andy—who is featured on the show as an Amish person living an Amish lifestyle—has a Facebook profile (which has since been made private) with plenty of pictures of all of them hanging out in streetwear.

Additionally, Abe says on the show that he has never used a microwave, taken a shower, or "partied." Who knows about the microwave and showers, but he certainly was arrested four years ago in Kentucky for public intoxication.

And then there's Sabrina—the only Mennonite featured on the show—who says that her family won't speak to her about her decision to go to New York. Sabrina was married in a secular ceremony in 2009; it's unknown if she's still married. And this is not her first time on reality TV: She participated in a documentary on NatGeo called Amish at the Altar.

Finally, there's Kate, a girl who is supposedly a Bishop's daughter but is on the outs with her family after receiving a DUI. Kate, too, left the Amish years ago, according to X Amish Atheist:

    In reality, sources tell me that Kate hasn't been Amish for years. She has been driving a car, dressing non-Amish, and working in a Ruby Tuesdays in Lebanon, Pennsylvania.

She's also an aspiring model. Within hours of her profile from an online modeling agency being posted on Breaking Amish Truth, it was taken down. It is still cached on Google, though.

This is not a reality show as it's been advertised; the stars of Breaking Amish might as well be paid as actors. While elements "staging" or "contrivances" to amp up the drama on reality shows is par for the course, at least the people featured on most shows tend to be who they say they are. Sure, there have been instances of scandalous pasts or criminal histories of certain cast members who weren't properly vetted by producers. But every single person on Breaking Amish is pretending to be something they aren't. The entire concept of the show—people breaking away from their Amish communities for the first time to experience the outside world—is fraudulent.

In a statement released by TLC, the network said, "There is a lot of information floating around about the group featured on Breaking Amish. Much of it is not true, but some of it is — and is addressed in upcoming episodes." Of course.



what about the other guy the cool one

For six years, Raber was married to fellow defector Naomi Stutzman, with whom he had three children. Stutzman filed for divorce last year on the grounds of "gross neglect of duty" and "extreme cruelty." According to their court documents, she was granted a restraining order against Raber and lived in a shelter for victims of domestic violence after she left him.
