Amy Duggar: My Abuser Is Mad I Called Him Out!

by at .  Updated at .

From the moment we learned we'd see Amy Duggar and Dillion King on Marriage Boot Camp, the couple's decision was fraught with controversy.

For one thing, they had only been married seven months when they agreed to do the show, leading many to believe one of two things:

Either 1. Amy and Dillon's problems were beyond repair, or 2. Jim Bob Duggar's niece and her husband had other motives for appearing.

They agreed to do MBC for a little free publicity, in other words.

Scrutiny of the couple became even more intense online when a trailer appeared to show Amy accusing Dillon King of abuse.

It was later revealed that she was referring to a different "male family member" in the clip, raising eyebrows as well as more questions.

For the time being, that's as much as Amy is choosing to reveal.

In a recent interview with Fox News, Amy stated that her abuser's name will be revealed in an upcoming episode of Marriage Boot Camp.

And not surprisingly, the guilty party is less than thrilled about it.

In fact, in a shocking turn of events, Amy says she forgave her abuser for doing what he did long ago, but he's having a hard time forgiving her.

For accusing him of this act on national television, that is.

"I’m grateful I had the opportunity,” Amy told Fox News.

“I wished I could have done it behind closed doors," she added in her interview with the cable network, with debatable sincerity.

"It’s not that I regret saying his name."

The aspiring singer-songwriter added:

"I regret talking about it on camera, but it’s something that just literally blew out of my mouth and the doctors could tell that I was bothered by something.”

Amy has hinted at an abusive childhood in the past, and she says the incident in question happened many years before she even met King.

"The question [I was asked] was, ‘Who hurt you when you were a little girl? Who was someone that first brought you pain?'"

"And this person ... I tried to hide it, I did," Duggar says of the revelation she would make on the WeTV reality show.

So why didn't she keep it hidden?

The doctors, she said, were very persistent, and "were like, ‘No, there’s something there. There’s something bothering you.’”

Amy says she was reluctant and regrets that in discussing the incident for the first time, she did so in front of a camera crew.

Nevertheless, she says she is grateful that she had the opportunity to begin working through issues from her childhood:

"And before I had the chance to really think about it and clear my mind, [the name] came out in therapy."

"And I forgave this person. This person is having a hard time forgiving me for mentioning it on camera."

"But in the moment," Amy says, she just wasn't thinking that through, because "I literally forgot cameras were even there.”

Anyone out here buying that company line for a second?

Sounds like yet another scandal for the beleaguered Duggar family, but they're used to ut at this point, and have seen worse.

After Josh Duggar ruined the family's reputation with acts of child molestation and infidelity, how can anyone stoop lower?

(Hopefully we don't get a real answer to that.)
