Amy Roloff Coffee Chat (Live Internet Talk Show) Returns Saturday Jan 14, 2012

Amy Roloff's live internet "talk show" that she has called "Coffee Chat With Amy" is returning this Saturday Jan 14th at 10am Pacific time.

Amy and her team have posted these messages on all of her various social networking sites:

"Hey everyone, join me on little BIG Talk with Amy Saturday, 14th, 10-11. Go to www.amyroloffcf.org to log in, a little talk here and there and BIG talk on a topic. Your questions, suggestions, and input are talked about to. IT'S LIVE. what's up. More info to follow. I'm starting up again and beginning on a Saturday. Woohoo."

Amy's previous "Coffee Chats" have been held via Ustream:


Amy's live internet "coffee chats" began after the cancellation of "Little People, Big World" and continued pretty regularly -- every Friday -- until about June of 2011 when the LPBW specials were announced.

Previously, Amy began holding her internet chats in a coffee shop and would have a local guest. She then moved it to her home. Occasionally, the Roloff kids (and once, Matt) would make an appearance, but I think it's fair to say they appeared to be rather reluctant and not much was ever revealed. Amy often did cooking segments or interviewed guests such as musician Patrick Lamb while Amy's life chat audience asked questions.

Some people made the observation that towards the end of the "Coffee Chat with Amy" series, Amy appeared more reluctant to talk about the kids and discuss the real events in the lives of the Roloffs - even though that's what the chatters kept asking about. Amy seemed like she wanted the chat talk to be directed at her cooking segments and interviews of her guests rather than questions about her kids and the ever popular "How is Rocky doing?" (which was asked multiple times in every coffee chat).

The most discussed or note-worthy incident to come from Amy's Live Internet Coffee Chat from Spiritswander readers, was after Amy had said all questions are welcome and asked for some "tough questions". A chatter named Kyle asked Amy about the Solid Rock church that Jeremy and the Roloffs love so much and the issues of hypocrisy because some of the church's messages that are taught appear to contradict the content of Amy's speeches in her role as a paid Diversity speaker about acceptance of people who are different.

You can read our detailed recap of that show here:


Amy appeared to be a bit rattled by the question (and gave a vague answer). People noticed that in Amy's chats after that question/show she appeared to be less willing to take/answer questions.

So to recap: Amy's Coffee Chat: Live Internet show returns this Saturday at 10:00 AM Pacific time.

Ask her about the Subpoena of Spiritswander and why is she pissing away tax dollars on this?!?

Kathleen said...

I think Amy wants to be the next Rachael Ray.

The fans that are still interested want more of the family, not cooking and Amy isn't going to tell anything that's real.

Janet said...

I might be in the minority, but I thought the coffee chats were ok. I liked hearing directly from Amy. Yeah it was mainly fluffy, but it was good hearing from Amy.

I would rather watch Amy answer a question than Matt. Amy is more honest than Matt (although that's not saying much!).

I did learn some from her Coffee Chats. It was interesting to hear her talk about Jacob being expelled.

Pamela said...

It also shows Amy's hypocrisies in other ways. Who can forget You don't know us from watching us on TV so don't judge us even though we are public figures'....then she went onto name call "Weiner Whiner" and judge the people on Jersey Shore even though she doesn't know them.

Dave said...

I watched one time for curiousity sake, but the counter on the site indicated that only about 25 other people were watching. Wonder if that's accurate. I did notice, when clicking on the "little big talk" website, the picture of Amy is sans wedding ring. Sad.

Natalie said...

If she wants more viewers she should cater to people on the east coast and also....working people! Yes, Amy, a lot of people, a lot of LPBW fans actually are not rich and do have to work.

Before it was Fridays at 11am. Most people I know are at work at that time.

At least now it is on the weekend, but it is 7AM. I don't think I'll be getting up just to watch an Amy coffee chat.

10am pacific time is 2pm eastern.

Kyle said...

The Coffee Chats were never anything useful especially when she would have people on from local businesses. It very much did seem like something she would use to compile together a demo reel to try and sell for a real talk show. Especially with the low turnout I feel she should do them live (at a better day/time) and then on top of it post them to youtube so even if people can't make it live can still see what's up.

Natalie said...

Thanks Rap. My mistake. I went the wrong way with the 3 hour time difference.

Mike P. said...

10am Pacific time is 1pm eastern. Math matters.

The coffee chats showcase beautifully Amy Roloff's crashing ineptitude and overweening belief that she has something to say.

BeckyM said...

Amy a Hypocrite????!!! Never! What a shocker! NOT...

Just guessing that Spirits is keeping cards close to the chest on the legal aspect. We know Matt reads the blog so why give him any info on battleplans?

Brandon said...

The Roloffs never think they have to adhere to the same rules and ethics that they want others to display.

The Roloffs fail miserably on the golden rule: Treat others how you want to be treated.

Brandon said...

Oh hey Spirits, that's a cool new Reply feature. You can reply to a specific person now.

Christine said...

Amy says she is focused on doing good work for 2012, "worth it work". Like filing unlawful or abusive subpoenas?

Mike P. said...

Oh, no! She'll get bored doing the real thing.

No more cruise-ship charity? No more flowing evening gowns, balloon wine glasses, balconied staterooms? No more private planes to deliver--just in the nick of time--a few piddly backpacks to selected and washed children?

Oh, Amy!

(And you'll do your "worth it work" without a camera following, right?)

Timothy said...

Exactly Mike. I agree. Asking other people to donate money is better than nothing, but I think it's important to note the difference between people that are actually giving and doing the helping and people that reap the rewards and accolades for it.

She is delusional in my opinion. All of the Roloffs are delusional. I guess it's what happens with a bit of fame.. I really do think Amy honestly believes that her partying and vacationing "in the name of charity" makes her a wonderful giving person that deserves pats on the back.

Dave said...

Watched again to see if it was the same as last time. Still about 25 viewers. Most important news from the show? Molly doesn't chew with her mouth open.

Michelle said...

Dave, when I logged on, it said there were 111 viewers.

Nancy V said...

Dumb question I guess?

Why in a "Live Chat" do they take so few questions?

Isn't the point of an internet chat to respond to the chatters?

Randy said...

Is there going to be a recap of Amy's Coffee Chat? I wasn't able to catch it this weekend.

Spiritswander said...

Hi Randy,

Yes, it will be coming soon.
Been busy with legal stuff.

BeckyM said...

Passing along Peter Dinklage accepted Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television at the Golden Globes and mentioned another dwarf (it wasn't Matt)

Dave said...

Michelle,

I suppose there could have been 111. When I looked, it said 24 "viewers" and then at the bottom it said about 75 "guests". I suppose that could mean viewers too. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and say she had about 100 people watching her. Not quite as many as watch the show, but close.

Emma said...

A whoppin' 111 viewers huh? Ouuu, the Roloffs are quite the celebrities.

Not.

Meanwhile, we have real celebrities (you know, the ones majority of the public *actually* know) like the Jonas Brothers and One Direction who average well over 300,000 viewers per live chat. They're not cocky or arrogant. Infact, they'd have more of a reason to be cocky and arrogant than the Roloffs do. If the Roloffs are THIS arrogant with such minimal popularity, imagine what they'd be like if they had the star statuses of the Jonas Brothers or One Direction.

It's really kind of pitiful.
