Two nights ago, I saw this quick blurb about a Duggar and blackmail and I said to myself that I really wanted to talk about it yesterday and then I completely forgot. For some reason, no one has really talked about it that much and I think it is fascinating. I guess I don't watch the show enough because I have no idea who Amy Duggar is. Apparently she is a niece of Jim Bob. I don't think I would have the guts to ever name a child Jim Bob. It is kind of like your parents just could not decided between James and Robert so chose them both and for good measure shortened them up so he did not sound like a Presbyterian minister.
Anyway, Amy is sometimes on the show and Duggar is not really even her last name. Nope. It is Jordyn. She is a country singer though so went ahead and took her mom's maiden name and the more famous Duggar name for her career. Anyway, a woman in Iowa was arrested a few days ago because she tried to extort money from TLC. Lesson #1 is don't do drugs and booze 24/7 because you will look like you are 50 when you are 25. Hello Lindsay Lohan. Lesson #2 is never blackmail a television network. Keep your blackmail and extortion to individuals who will sometimes pay at least a little. This woman in Iowa says she has intimate pictures of a 56 year old man with Amy who I think is 25. She sometimes fudges that too because she wants people to think she is younger. Anyway, the woman told TLC she would release the photos unless they shut down the show and paid her some money. They refused.
For her part, Amy just said that the 56 year old was a good Christian man and that people are trying to exploit his generosity. So, does that mean there are some photos? What the woman in Iowa should have done was call Radar or The Enquirer. For photos like that of a Duggar? She would have got way more than $10K and would not have ended up in jail either.
