Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have no problem exposing their daughters to their child molester oldest brother, Josh. But the conservative Christian parents apparently draw the line when it comes to the girls' bikini-wearing cousin, Amy!

The 29-year-old aspiring country singer, who wears cleavage-baring outfits and dated other men before marrying husband Dillon King last fall, spoke out about her uncle Jim Bob's strict rules regarding his daughters' friendships with their "rebel" cousin.

When an Instagram follower asked Amy if her cousins, including Jana, 26, Jill, 24, Jessa, 23, and Jinger, 22, ever visit her nearby Arkansas home, the former reality star said she's not allowed to hang out with the girls outside the Duggar estate.

"It's a rule...that if I want to spend quality time with them, I have to come see them," Duggar responded.

"They don't want me to influence them."

Amy admitted that the rule "used to bother me," but says she's learned to keep her mouth shut.

"It used to really bother me and then I realized that I just live knowing that God gives us grace," she wrote. "I can only be myself and even though we don't see eye to eye on every little thing we are still family and I do still love them."

"I respect their standards and I don't fuss about it."

Meanwhile, Josh, 28, is believed to be back at home with his family following six months in rehab for his sex and porn addiction.

"Reality sat in that the person I had known my entire life turned out to be a fraud, and a complete stranger," she has said of Josh's cheating confession.

Amy's husband Dillon has also slammed Josh and TLC producers for covering Josh's wife Anna in the scandal's aftermath on Jill & Jessa: Counting On.

"It looks like they are using all the emotion for ratings," he told In Touch in December. "It's just not right."
