  • An Iowa woman has been charged with extortion after she threatened to reveal a “19 Kids and Counting” cast member in “apparently intimate situations.” You mean like holding hands? Scandalous!  Teresa Hunt wanted Discovery Communications for $10,000 or else she would go to magazines with the pic. The female cast member is unspecified, but this lady claimed she was “sleeping with a 56-year-old man.” Look, we all want TLC to cancel the show, lady! Extortion is still illegal.  [Huffington Post]
