Danielle Busby Feels Wounded By Adam’s Confession

When asked about his biggest takeaway, Adam Busby had a very shocking realization.

“Realizing how different we are as far as how we want to feel, like, loved,” Adam confessed. “Talking about how I play good cop. It’s just because I want that love and affection from the kids because I don’t necessarily get it from [Danielle]. And so like, I’m the good cop with them because I want them to be drawn to me and love me.”

As the weight of his words set in, Danielle began to absorb their meaning.

“It’s definitely hard to kind of, hear for the first time honestly that sometimes Adam plays the good cop just so he gets you know, the attention and praises and love and affection from all the girls,” Danielle shared in an emotional confessional. “That’s a hard thing to hear as a wife. I feel like, he kind of stabbed me in the heart a little bit. It makes me feel really sad because I don’t want him to think that I don’t love him.”

Can The Couple Overcome Their Difficulties?

It’s difficult to know what exactly happens when cameras aren’t rolling. But all signs indicate that Adam and Danielle Busby are still together right now.

Danielle shared on Instagram that they had a date night at a Justin Timberlake concert last week.

  1. Adam Busby is a jerk. I think his behavior from the beginning showed he didn’t and doesn’t want to be the father to 6 kids. I stopped watching long ago and only read recaps occasionally to see if they’ve changed. in my opinion. NO.

  2. Adam and Danielle have unfortunately lost the love and respect for one anothe and actually have lost a Big part of themselves in trying to be good parents to the girls. They really need to get into counseling right away if they plan on saving their marriage. It’s slowly slipping away.
    Painful to watch !😥

  3. IMO they both need to get on the same page and parent and discipline the quints. They are all 5 way old enough to pick up their own toys, and clothes and put their own laundry away. They need to have house chores to do also. The fact that they don’t, puts an extra burden on Danielle, and that’s why she feels unsupported by Adam. If she had help, in the way of Adam and the girls cleaning up after themselves and helping around the house, she wouldn’t feel so overwhelmed. Yes, it looks like she is a control freak but I would feel the same way she does if I had lots of capable people in the house that did nothing. Not sure, but I think Blayke does pick up her own room and clothes. I’ve never seen her room messy except when the quints were in there playing and getting in to all of her things. Make a chore chart (for everyone in the family) and give consequences if chores are not done. Most important of all…follow through with consequences if chores are not done. Start now, because the older they get, the harder it will be. Love this family and would hate to see them split up.
