This afternoon, while home sick, my phone rang. The call ID name flashed on the screen Levi Stoltzfus. And I be derned, it was.
Levi said he can’t give me an interview at this time because Discovery forbids them from giving interviews and having social media accounts. So as I reported before, no one from The Amish Mafia has Facebook pages, Twitter accounts…If they did, they don’t now. Levi stated, “I hate that fans believe these people online are me. We have no online accounts.”
He seemed to appreciate my interest in the show and voiced some concern about the show possibly not being renewed. He didn’t state why but I suspect it could be over the “events are recreated” issue. I said, “While I don’t want to hear people are running around with guns shooting watermelons up, it was great to see Jolin do it on tv.” Levi laughed, “Yeah, it is great for tv. I’m glad people like it. We really do shoot up watermelons patches to make a point.”
Levi has a really nice voice when he is not wound-up screaming at someone, like John. We talked for a little over ten minutes and agreed to keep in touch.
He likes the idea of a book.
So do I.
