"It's Just Ludicrous, All That Controversy"
MG: Yeah, she didn't seem all that amazed, I thought.
Lori: They just sent the most adorable Christmas card. It's a portrait of their three kids. It's so gorgeous it should be in a nice magazine.
MG: I bet you guys have gotten great Christmas cards this year.
Lori: Yes, everyone. And we're such losers, we never do anything. Also because we're Jewish, we never even think about those things. But Taylor sent one out, a picture of herself holding a teddy bear, so I feel like she's fully recovered. Sophia really liked Taylor, so we're glad she's doing well.
MG: Who else have you been in touch with since the show, other than Jared, and the cards from people?
Sophia: Michael, sort of. Laurel and Kennedy. Morgan visited once.
Lori: Morgan, Kennedy, and Jared have all been to visit. Jared has been here several times. Michael comes from a wonderful family. They live up outside of Seattle in a rural area, Both his parents are doctors, and his mom is so cool. She's like a teaching doctor, a family doctor, and she just went to Africa for a month. I mean, they're just the coolest, most wonderful people. And the funny thing is, when I had gone to pick Sophia up, we were there for about a day or two before we saw the kids, and so we hung out with the parents. This time we're allowed to talk with them, and I immediately hooked up with them when I met them for the first time, and we had such a great time together. And then I learned that their son was Sophie's best friend, so it was just so interesting, you know? The kids are reflections of their parents. It should have beenParent Nation.
MG: Maybe next season. Getting back to Gold Stars, Sophia, did you know that Kennedy had nominated you for a repeat win?
Sophia: I think she told me a few days later.
Lori: Kennedy also comes from a great family. She's an only child. They live in Kentucky. She's a tennis pro! And her parents are real class acts, really good people.
MG: Did you feel like, with the show, that the goal was to build a world and build a society like they kept saying, or was it trying to make a TV show?
