Recently, TLC reality stars the Duggars were caught up in the least scandalous extortion plot of all time. A woman reportedly tried to squeeze $10,000 out of the family because she had photos of cousin Amy Duggar posing with an older musician she reportedly had an affair with.
The FBI caught the woman and the photos were completely harmless, but on tonight’s (Feb. 28) episode of “19 Kids and Counting,” we meet James Garrett, the man caught up in the non-scandal, for the first time.
The episode takes us to Branson, MO where we catch up with Cousin Amy and find out what’s happening in her budding music career.
At the time the extortion plot went public, Duggar issued a statement regarding her relationship with Garrett. “He is a longtime family friend who has always been supportive of my music career,” she says. “He’s a good Christian and it’s upsetting that his generosity has been exploited like this.”
“19 Kids and Counting” airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. on TLC.
