Does Amy Roloff have fake friends? That's what Little People, Big World fans are wondering after a handful of people from her circle showed up during a recent episode of the Roloff family's hit reality TV series. In honor of Amy's 53rd birthday, her boyfriend Chris Marek decided to surprise her with a sweet couples' getaway for the weekend and it ended with a surprise party at her home on Roloff Farms with all of her friends, and fans were not impressed with the company that Amy keeps.

"I can not stand Amy's 'friends,' especially the blonde one, fake AF. They act like teenage girls when they're well into their 50s," one reddit user wrote, while another commented, "Their scenes always seem very scripted. Like producers just tell her friends what to ask so they don’t have only talking head scenes of Amy." Another reddit user pointed out, "They disgust me. Fake fake fake. Are they really friends or just paid actors? They are ultra snooty."
But one of the biggest issues that fans seem to have is that it seemd like Chris just failed to invite Amy's kids to her birthday party at her home. "If I walked into my surprise party and not one family member was there, I’d cry. Friends seem to be more important to Amy these days. And I think her family knows it," one reddit user wrote.

Granted, Amy's son Jeremy and his wife Audrey had just welcomed their first child together, so they probably would not have made it anyway, but there's no reason why Amy's son Zach and his wife Tori didn't get an invite. But Amy seemed to be happy with Chris' party planning skills either way and she took to Instagram to gush over him. "Chris really knew how to surprise me," Amy wrote in her caption, "this guy is wonderful!"
