Amy Duggar talks about the Duggar family and her life now

The rebellious Amy (Duggar) King isn’t mad about being estranged from her uncle’s super conservative family.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 33-year-old opened up about her relationship with some of her extended fam members, sharing she’s “happy” for everyone even though “things are definitely different.”

Amy, whose mother Deanna is Jim Bob Duggar‘s older sister, told the outlet:

“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.”

Great to hear!

Amy said she’s still particularly close with her cousin Jill (Duggar) Dillard, with whom she texts regularly. She said of the Counting On alum: 

“Jill and I text, not on a daily basis, but we text quite often. And we discuss things.”

As for her cousin Jessa (Duggar) Seewald’s 3-year-old son Henry, who has speech delays, Amy said:

“I hope all the best for him and that he and the family are fine.”

She even had nothing but nice things to say about admitted sister molester Josh Duggar’s dreams of having a career in politics, telling the outlet:

“I hope that [Josh and Jed Dugger] do well with whatever they choose to do in their life.”

As for Amy, she’s been busy juggling a career in food services and raising her young son Daxton Ryan King with husband Dillon King.

While it gets stressful at times, the new mom said she’s completely “at peace” and loves where her “little family is heading,” sharing:

“I’ve got a 9-month-old, a restaurant that’s expanding, a boutique that’s doing well…I’m in a good place and I wish my family all the best. I have freedom and it is wonderful.”

But will fans be seeing her on television anytime soon? 

Don’t count on it. Amy said of a future in reality TV:

“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.”

Sounds like she’s learned from personal experience!

What do U think about this, Perezcious readers? Is Amy missing out by distancing herself from the Dugger clan?
