Entertainment Tonight.

Amy Duggar from the show "19 Kids and Counting" is setting the record straight after being targeted by a woman in Iowa who claimed to have compromising photos of Amy, as part of an attempt to extort money from TLC.

Bing: '19 Kids and Counting' video clips

Federal court documents show that Teresa Hunt was arrested Feb. 1 after she apparently sent TLC executives letters demanding that they cancel "19 Kids and Counting" or pay her $10,000 in exchange for her not releasing photos of Amy and a 56-year-old musician that were described as depicting "apparently intimate situations."

Amy, an aspiring country singer and the 25-year-old niece of Jim Bob Duggar, told ET in a statement that there are no compromising photos of her with the musician, whom she has known for quite some time as a friend. "It's totally untrue. He is a longtime family friend who has always been supportive of my music career. He's a good Christian and it's upsetting that his generosity has been exploited like this."

The TLC reality show focuses on the ups and downs of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar as they raise their growing family of 19 children.

it was a good run.... time for the Duggars to return to a private sector in the world and just enjoy their family off screen.

I agree. Shes not their kid and anyone who watches the show can see she is different than them

Quoting Gabeys_Mommy:
