"Josh is determined to fix his image so he can make a comeback," a source close to the family tells Us Weekly.
"He'll stop at nothing to get back in front of the cameras again, especially because he's broke and has no prospect of work.
"Getting another reality show is the only way he can think of to make real money."
Josh has been a public figure for long enough to know that any post-scandal comeback starts with an apology tour, and he's already making plans to sob his way through a contrite interview or two:
"Josh is having Anna reach out to people like Dr. Phil and Megyn Kelly so he can have his mea culpa moment," the source claims.
"If that goes well and people are sympathetic towards him, he is sure he can convince TLC to give him and Anna a spin-off - something to do with healing their marriage within the Christian faith."
Hang on a minute, I'm fighting my gag reflex.
You know scandal is not that a child molesting pervert is negotiating a pathway back into America's living rooms.
The scandal is that it will probably work.
What's more the first episode will likely attract millions of viewers and ultimately be a big hit for TLC.
And that my friends is why we currently have a narcissistic sociopathic reality star now within striking distance of winning the White House.
This is who we are now. This is what we have become.
