Question: How would you describe Lexie?
Amy Long: She is youthful, voluptuous, flirtatious and she seeks attention.
Question: What does Lexie want?
A.L.: Lexie is terrified of aging. She wants to hang onto her youth for as long as she can. She's been through two or three divorces, and that's not stopping her. She's going to plow through as many men as she can. She loves the attention.
Question: What is nice about being in an all-woman group?
A.L.: I love being part of a smaller group where we all get a chance to connect with one another. It's a close, warm dynamic that I'm really enjoying.
Question: Imagine you and your real-life female friends got together for a weekend. Where would you go and what would you do?
A.L.: We would go Captiva Island near Fort Myers, Florida. I have a special spot in my heart for that beach. We would buy all kinds of bottles of wine and we drink and we talk, and we drink and we talk. We cry a little bit, we hug, we talk some more, and then we drink some more.
