In an interview with PEOPLE Now, Duck Dynasty stars Missy and Jase Robertson – who faced negative publicity and the suspension of their show when Jase's father Phil made controversial comments about race and homosexuality in a 2013 interview – offer their advice to the 19 Kids and Counting stars.
"We've never met them before," Missy says, "but my advice to anybody would be, you know, you've got to look within yourself. Forget the cameras, forget the media, who cares what anybody else says – this is your life."
She continues, "You've got to make decisions for yourself and forget everyone else."

"I was here in New York a couple of years ago, and I get escorted out of of the Trump hotel that I was staying in," the Duck Dynasty star tells PEOPLE Now. "But a guy, when I asked him where the bathroom is, he looked at me, and thought, 'Right this way,' and he grabbed my arm, took me outside and pointed at Central Park and said, 'Have a nice day.' "
When word of the incident got back to the Trumps, they immediately called Robertson to apologize and told him to contact them the next time the family was in town. Well, naturally, Robertson took them up on that offer.

"It honestly makes me really sad that they're having to go through this, because it's one thing to go through it as a family, and it would be just as hard for them if they weren't in the limelight, but ... everybody's talking about it, and that just adds that many more comments, that many more opinions," Robertson tells PEOPLE Now while promoting her new book Live Original. "We've been there, it's hard."
TLC had already canceled 19 Kids and Counting after Josh admitted to molesting five underage girls (including his sisters) as a teen, but the former conservative lobbyist fell from grace again after confessing to cheating on his wife Anna using the website Ashley Madison last week.

After years of keeping his abuser's secret, the youngest of Duck Dynasty's Robertson clan is opening up about the sexual molestation he suffered as a child.
"I was 6, and it was on a school bus, and it was an older girl," Jep Robertson told Entertainment Tonight. "Back then the high school students would ride on the same bus as the grade school. There was an older girl that was just real mean. I think … that she was just terribly abused herself. But yeah, it was a lot of things that took place – scary stuff. It was tough."
Robertson opens up further about the abuse in his new book co-written with his wife, Jessica, called The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God: What Honesty and Pain Taught Us About Faith, Family, and Forgiveness.
