Amy Duggar is an aspiring singer, not an aspiring tabloid fixture.

Or so it sure seems in this clip from Tuesday's new episode of 19 Kids and Counting, in which Jim Bob Duggar's niece talks about meeting musician James Garrett and the advice he's given her about performing.

Shocking! Well, at least the Iowa woman who supposedly thought that a photo of Amy and Garrett smiling together could net her $10,000 seemed to think so!

"James is very talented, and he's definitely shown me different ideas that you can do, and I look up to him. The advice he gives me, I take," Amy says of Garrett, who has had the 25-year-old perform during his A Tribute to John Denver show at the Little Opry Theater in Branson, Mo.

Teresa Hunt has been charged with one count of extortion for allegedly demanding that TLC cancel 19 Kids and Counting or pay her $10,000, or else she would sell photographs she had of Amy and the 56-year-old Garrett in an "intimate situation" to the media.

Garrett laughed off the insinuation, calling the supposedly incriminating pictures "totally benign." 

If the photo that E! News obtained is any indicator, Hunt had squat on Amy Duggar. But maybe compromising situations are just in the eye of the beholder.

19 Kids and Counting airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. on TLC.
