Amy King reveals details about her relationship with Duggar cousins

In a new interview with ET, Amy opens up about the relationship she has with her cousins. Amy reveals that she often communicates with Jill, saying, “Jill and I text, not on a daily basis, but we text quite often. And we discuss things.”

Then, Amy says, “I think we are all just trying to find our path and we’re all just doing things differently. I’m doing things differently and I’m happy where I’m at. I’m happy for them. Things are definitely different, but I’m happy for everybody.”

Amy then goes on to say, “I’ve got a 9-month-old, a restaurant that’s expanding, a boutique that’s doing well. TV [in general] is just a whole lot of hustle and bustle. I want to be received as a genuine, kind person, and TV in general can give people a different perception of who someone is.”

Finally, she says, “I’m in a good place and I wish my family all the best. I have freedom and it is wonderful.” Amy also says that she’s “at peace.” She’s looking forward to seeing where her own little family goes moving forward.
