The countdown is on for the new season of Amish Mafia to start. I read an article in the Lancaster newspaper that talked about the election of Pennsylvania’s governor. It seems like Corbett screwed up trying to trash Amish Mafia as part of his campaign. Meanwhile, Wolf didn’t care what Levi was up to in Lancaster County and now he’s the new governor. While I’m sure there is no connection what-so-ever, it does raise my curiosity. Could Levi have some influence that caused Corbett to lose his seat or was he going to lose the governor’s race regardless?
Levi’s father ran Amish Aid (which supposedly was the original title of the Discovery Channel show) and now Levi handles the funds to help those Amish in need of cash to get by during difficult circumstances. Not sure what hut parties and cage fights have to do with all that but from what I’m told, Levi doesn’t get paid to do the show. Instead they bought him a Cadillac and when he wrecked that one, they bought him another. I find it real hard to believe that Levi does the show just for a car and a couple trucks for his tough men.
Now I know Esther, the self-proclaimed queen of the Amish Mafia, isn’t returning and neither is her goofy, scooter riding brother, John. I can’t say I’ll miss the two of them other than to laugh my ass off at their “acting” and off screen antics. Esther posted that she was experiencing a big change in her life. Some people commented that she was pregnant. I haven’t been able to confirm or debunk that one but I’m guessing that baby might not match up with her first two. She likes her meat dark these days. Is her relationship with Mirkat over? It wouldn’t surprise me if it wasn’t. A big change in her life might be to open her eyes and realize, once a woman beater, always a woman beater. Seriously, that was the wrong way to go about getting a make-over.
Esther’s fans might appreciate getting reimbursed for her cookbooks and her “personally” hand-sewn goods they never received. They’ve been waiting a LONG time and are extremely displeased by the fraudulent sales. That might be a good change Esther, giving back the money you took from the people who thought you were genuinely Amish. If she were really Amish though, you wouldn’t have ever learned her name or seen her on TV to start with. She is talking about creating her own YouTube cooking channel. I can’t see her sticking to that either. So far, she hasn’t stuck to anything she starts out to accomplish. Her take-over of the Amish Mafia was certainly a FAIL.
Now the person I will miss is Freeman, if he leaves the show. Now that he spoke, I just want to hear more out of his mouth. That man is just creepy and the creepy factor grows on you. Some people have commented that they find Freeman to be sexy with this “creepy persona” on the show. I did a little research and it appears he has a girlfriend, but it’s hard to tell with these folks. They’re running amok with their pants down. How very Amish of them.
I’m expecting changes in the program for season 4. They might get really out of control and Wayne will break things without safety glasses! Just kidding, I’m actually hoping the mafia will tackle real issues in Lancaster County such as puppy mills, the sale of horses for glue, and especially, child abuse. Do I know this is going to happen? Uh, no. But, I can hope and write about it and say, “Hey Discovery Channel, make it happen!” Maybe if the Amish Mafia was doing something positive people wouldn’t be so pissed off about the “reality” of the show.
So, I’m ALWAYS looking for information about the “Amish” folks on the show. I’d love to hear anything you know about them. Comment below, email me at email@example.com, find me on Facebook as Pattie Crider and message me or shoot me a text at 717-916-0586.
When I write, Discovery reads.
