Amy Roloff Live Coffee Chat Dec 10
Amy Roloff held another Coffee Chat streamed live on the internet.
There weren't many questions this week. We've heard from people who are confused about how to join the chat, they aren't sure if they have to register on Ustream or if they can join the chat from Facebook or Twitter so I think that might be part of the problem at the moment.
We certainly receive a lot of questions -- wide ranging questions for Amy and about Amy, although some of them tend to be deeper than the type of questions Amy and her charity team are probably looking for on the live chat which tend to be of the fluffy variety.
Amy had a musician as her guest, Patrick Lamb, who played the sax. A lot of the talk was about him. She also spoke to her personal trainer for a few minutes. The trainer mentioned that viewers didn't get to see Amy's progress in October.
Amy was in Los Angeles for the finale of Little People, Big World. She enjoyed getting to meet the people that work on the show behind the scenes in the editing department and so on.
There were a few things that people might be interested in hearing how Amy answered.
*She was asked why they ended the show. Amy gave a similar answer to what Matt has said about it. She said the timing was right and they were ready to end the show; as was TLC so it was mutual decision according to Amy.
*Amy was asked what accomplishment she was proudest of in regards to the family doing the show? Amy stated that it's the awareness they've raised for Little People and people who are different; teaching that people might look different but are all in the world together. Amy also said she was proud that the family wasn't afraid to be real on the show.
*A viewer asked if Amy felt her edit on the show was accurate (the viewer said Amy seemed very cynical on the show)? Her answer was the same as she's said previously -- viewers see "the moment", but they don't see what lead up to the moment, the before and after. She does feel that their basic personalitis shone through.
*There was a question asking if there would be any specials or follow ups. Amy indicated that's a strong possibility, that viewers might see if the twins move out, where Molly goes to college and how Jacob will cope will with his siblings leaving because he's used to there always being a ton of people at the house. Amy also added that fans might see one or more Roloffs on television in another capacity or involved in other projects.
*Will Molly go to George Fox University? Amy doesn't know, the big test will be in the spring when Molly will have to actually apply.
*Will the Roloffs still have pumpkin season? Amy said it's up to Matt since he does most of the work, Amy and the kids help out a bit, but pumpkin season is Matt's thing and requires a lot of work on his part. However, she did say she expect they'll have pumpkin season for many, many more years.
*What was it like having twins? Amy said there were concerns how a LP would carry twins; she's just thankful they were both healthy. They did know that one would be average size and one would be a Little Person.
*Jacob still has his turtle. Amy sounded amazed that the turtle still gets fed and is still alive.
*Someone asked what Amy means when she says that "Jacob is my teenager". Amy explained that she means Jake has the attitude associated with teenagers. Amy said Jacob has that stubborn streak, doesn't talk a lot when they try to talk to him and he sasses back. According to Amy, she didn't get that too much from Zach, Jeremy and Molly.
There are recordings of her other chats (today's chat is not up yet):
