Yesterday, Amy Roloff posted a message on the Little People, Big World page located on Facebook.
If you have a facebook account and search Little People, Big World, it is the group with the profile picture featuring the Roloff family standing at the bottom of the stairs in their home. It was taken around the same time as when they filmed the (early) Christmas episode 2008 .
For those wondering, Amy's page is private. She will not add fans and does not have the reputation of responding to fan messages sent via Facebook. Amy only adds friends, fellow celebrities, people "in the business", sponsors and business associates, organizers of the events having her speak and such.
The Little People, Big World page itself is somewhat bland. It has 23, 700 fans. Most post on the wall (Facebook lingo) stating how much they love the show. There is the TLC promo picture and that's about all.
However, yesterday Amy posted on the wall. This was her message:
Amy J Roloff --
definately feels awkward to post on a show that I'm in. However, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you who watch LPBW. We are not perfect, make mistakes, have successes and failures, a little different, do some crazy things, get after each other but also have a great time with each other, just little people parents doing the best we can and love our kids and helping them to try and be the best they can be. What will I do when they eventually move on in their own life. Love them just as much and be there for them. I have not met you but have met some really awesome people on my travels and speaking engagements. It has been a pleasure to see who is watching me. I really do love my crew that is with us. They are great and help us do what we do - message about LP and life. Life is an adventure, ups and downs, sadness and joys, but awesome. Best to everyone and have a great summer. We will be back for a 5th season so I hear. Amy, yes it's me, Amy Roloff
Changing to a different topic that won't make sense to most people, there has been another anomaly occurring in the last 24 to 72 hours with inquiries and keyword activity. It's not quite at the feverish pitch as it was surrounding the false Wikipedia rumor regarding a Jeremy arrest, but it's common enough that obviously something is spurring it on. In the last few days, people have been searching for terms such as "Roloff twins ATV accident", "Jeremy Zach Roloff ATV crash", "Roloff father's day ATV accident", "Jeremy Roloff's death", and "Zach Roloff died". You're welcome to contact the blog and explain where this is originating.
Amy posted her message on the Facebook page last night, obviously she does not sound like she is mourning the death of Jeremy and Zach, so I hope this puts some people's minds at ease who are under the impression that Zach and Jeremy Roloff died in an ATV accident while in Utah on the weekend.
Edit: The mystery is solved, although still very tragic. Thank you to the reader who posted in the comments who knew the true story. There were twin brothers named Zach and Alex Rohloff in New York who were killed in an ATV accident. The difference in the spelling explain why google searches for "Roloff ATV accident" were providing no answers and directing people to this blog and our article about the Roloffs vacation in the British Virgin Islands in which it was mentioned that Matt, Jacob, Jeremy Roloff and Jacob Mueller had rode ATVs while in the British Virgin Islands.
Obviously people were hearing the name pronounced "Rol-off" and "Zach" and "twins" and thought it was the Little People, Big World Roloff twins. It was not. However, very sad and tragic and we offer our deepest condolences to the Rohloff family and friends.
