Amy Roloff Calls Out ‘Little People, Big World’ Editors For Taking Her Words Out Of Context
Amy Roloff is no stranger to living her life for a reality TV audience. She’s accustomed to the spotlight, criticism, and sometimes creative editing that comes along with the job.
She recently made a comment on Instagram though, in response to a follower’s pointed comment, that sometimes the editors of Little People, Big World have a knack for turning nothing into a big, dramatic something.
Roloff shared a series of photos to Instagram on Thursday, July 10, of a recent trip she took with her boyfriend, Chris Marek.
“Woohoo! I was so excited and over the moon to go on a motorcycle ride w/ Chris and friends again on Saturday over the 4th of July weekend. We went on the same route Chris and I did on our first big ride together – What? Can it be 3 years already? Still just as amazing. Just beautiful riding on Hwy 14 going up to the White Salmon river and the Klickitat valley. A spectacular fantastic and memorable ride once again,” she captioned the post.
The post received a sea of positive comments like “Looks like a great time. Your hair Amy says it all! Lol. You are the best!!” and “So glad you found happiness in this stage of your life with Chris.”
But one fan asked: “Did he leave you alone in a restaurant again?” alluding to an episode of Little People, Big World from Season 18 that detailed a statewide road trip in Washington that Roloff and Marek were taking.
Amy Roloff says this episode of ‘Little People, Big World’ didn’t actually happen like it was portrayed
Marek allegedly abandoned Roloff while the couple was on a dinner date. The whole episode portrayed Marek to be a less-than-caring partner.
During the episode, Roloff told the camera: “I’m definitely enjoying the trip, but we did get into an argument. When we were having dinner, he just left, and he was gone for a long time, and I was left by myself. I had no idea where he was, what we was doing… Ugh, I was so mad at him.”
But if you ask Roloff now, she’d say her words were taken out of context to heighten the situation.
Roloff replied to the fan’s question on Instagram.
“No, and it’s amazing what editing can make a story into,” she wrote.
Amy Roloff’s autobiography, ‘A Little Me’
“In A Little Me, Amy shares what it was like growing up with achondroplasia dwarfism, how she struggled to overcome obstacles both physical and emotional—navigating the average-size world as a little person, dealing with a serious illness as a young girl, bullying, and issues of body image and unachievable beauty ideals—while learning, as we all must, to accept herself for who she is […] Amy’s memoir is an inspiring and at times heart-wrenching account of resilience and the strength of the human spirit to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles,” reads the book’s description.
The only kind of editing Roloff (hopefully) received in A Little Me was for grammar and flow. But it’s completely her story, not TLC’s.
