Little People, Big World Sneak Peek: Amy Roloff BANNED From a Family Gathering

At long last, Little People, Big World returns Tuesday night!

But you don't have to wait for this long-anticipated season premiere to get a glimpse — because you can watch the sneak peek below.

And it looks like we're going to be seeing more conflict between exes Matt Roloff and Amy Roloff.

As the video shows, Matt and Amy's lives are still closely intertwined, even though they are no longer married.

"Coexisting with Amy has its ups and downs. Still living 500 feet apart."

Amy, of course, continues to live on Roloff Farms.

"You know, there’s good days and bad days and we just take it day by day."

Among other things, it sounds like their exes don't mingle. But being exes is almost always awkward.

"I’m very, very excited because Zach’s very, very first Father’s Day is coming up."

Which tells us that this was filmed quite some time ago.

"You know, my folks are coming into town so I’m going to have them come over and do a little Bar-B-Que or something low-key."

Matt cannot contain his excitement about celebrating that Zach is now a father of precious baby Jackson.

Jackson was a newborn at the time, but now the sweet baby is learning to swim.

"You know, I’m excited to have this party because a lot of events just kind of default over to Amy’s house."

This very natural tendency led some fans to believe that Matt was banned from Jacob's birthday party, though this was not the case.

It does sound a little like this trend made Matt feel a little insecure.

Matt roloff speaks

Matt talks about one important rule for the party.

"But other than Tori and Audrey, we’re not going to have the moms at the party."

He continues, trying to stress that this rule is more than just a gentle version of hammering a "NO AMY ALLOWED" sign over the front door.

"No girlfriends, no moms."

He's not referring to Isabel Rock with that (remember, this was filmed earlier last year), but his own girlfriend, Caryn Chandler.

"Caryn and Amy did not get the invite because we really wanted to focus on the dads."

That's … one way to do Father's Day, we suppose.

He then makes an unfortunate joke that, if taken at face value and out of context, would sound very sexist.

"Kind of like leave the drama."

Women are not inherently more dramatic than men, folks. But Matt isn't saying that.

He's saying that things that involve both Amy and Caryn are dramatic, and that inviting one while excluding the other would be a recipe for disaster.

Amy Roloff, in the mean time, speaks frankly to the camera about how things have become strained with Matt.

"Divorce changes things."

And it's impacting little family traditions.

"And this will be the first time that we don’t celebrate Father’s Day together."

They may live nearby, but they each have their own lives, now.

"You know, Matt and I have two different worlds, so it’s just hard."

Amy also points out how, since they still live together and film together, their differences of opinion still impact each other.

Matt Roloff points out a (super cool) pirate ship that he's building for the grandchildren Jackson and the still-unborn-when-this-was-filmed Ember.

Amy notes that it doesn't come cheap.

"There’s just certain things that Matt goes overboard on," she tells the camera.

Matt, she says, will "come up with a thought and then that thought runs away like a runaway train. And so Matt needs to be reigned in when it comes to some of these projects."

Normally, that would no longer be her responsibility.

But, as will clearly be a major element of this season, their lives are still closely tied together.

Arie Luyendyk Jr: Banned From Minnesota?

Though it came as no surprise to those who follow The Bachelor Spoilers, the world over was shocked when Arie Luyendyk Jr. dumped Becca Kufrin..

Among the fans recoiling in horror at that unedited video of the brutal breakup was Minnesota State Representative who was horrified on Becca’s behalf.

And now he’s drafted a bill to ban Arie from the state of Minnesota. Yes, really.

It seems like, following that finale, everyone hates Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Sure, his ex Emily Maynard says that she feels sorry for him, but to most members of the Bachelor Nation, it sounds like Paradise Dean Unglert is looking pretty good right about now.

Arie’s defenders, like Lauren Burnham, say that Arie just followed his heart.

No offense to Lauren, because absolutely none of this is her fault, but … it is not surprising to hear her take that stance.

But even Chris Harrison calls B.S. on Arie having filmed his breakup to “help” Becca.

One politician’s opinion of Arie could potentially impact his future travel plans.

Rep. Drew Christensen

Drew Christensen is a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives.

He is a 24-year-old Republican who represents district 56A. He holds a degree in Political Science, and was sworn in as a Representative on January 6th, 2015.

Look at this actual list of his committee assignments for the state’s 89th legislative session:

-Aging and Long-Term Care Policy

-Education Finance

-Education Innovation Policy

-Higher Education Policy and Finance

-Ban Arie Luyendyk Jr. from Minnesota

One of those things is not like the other.

This started when, in the aftermath of The Bachelor‘s season finale, Representative Christensen offered to author a bill to ban Arie from the state.

His price? A mere 1,000 retweets. On Twitter, that’s a pittance.

That tweet now has over 12,000 retweets (and well over 20,000 favorites).

Some politicians don’t hesitate to back down from their policies, but Christensen, it seems, is a man of his word.

“Drafting the bill now!” He tweeted. “Should I invite Becca to be my guest at Minnesota’s State of the State Address next week?”

Take a look:

Bill to Ban Arie Luyendyk Jr

The text of that reads:

“The state of Minnesota hereby adopts a policy of zero tolerance of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. from season 22 of The Bachelor.

That is … one hell of a statement.

“It is state policy that every person in the state has a right to live free from the presence of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. in the state.”

To those wondering why Christensen in particular authored the bill and what the state of Minnesota has to do with Arie, Becca Kufrin is from Minnesota.

In fact, Becca is from Prior Lake, which is represented by Christensen.

Christensen has also offered to extend Becca an invitation to Minnesota’s State of the State address by Gov. Mark Dayton.

If, however, he receives 10,000 retweets — as of Thursday afternoon, he has yet to achieve that milestone.

He was married in January, so we think that this is more of a political stunt than an effort to become Becca’s rebound.

Will Christensen’s bill pass? Sometimes, it is hard to tell with state legislatures.

Most likely, it will not.

All jokes about whether or not Arie would be interested in going to Minnesota in the first place aside (seriously, you guys, be nice — there are lovely people and majestic views in every single state), this is mostly just a strange story.

Christensen may be trying to increase his name recognition, which can be vital to longevity in a political career.

A lot of Republicans are facing tough races because their brands are so tied to Trump. It’s smart for any politician to widen their appeal, especially to something as (mostly) apolitical as The Bachelor.

Besides, it’s funny. Sometimes, things are just funny.

Megyn Kelly: Banned from the Royal Wedding?!?

NBC appears to have a royally big problem on its hands.

According to an interesting new report, Megyn Kelly knows where she wants to be this spring:

In London. Right in the thick of the most romantic and publicized wedding to hit Great Britain since Prince William exchanged vows with Kate Middleton.

Yes, Kelly wants to cover the Meghan Markle-Prince Harry nuptials.

She wants to be overseas, right alongside Today Show co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, filling viewers in on the mood of the crowd, the designer of Markle’s dress and all the other pressing details related to this monumental event.

There’s just one problem:

Kelly’s bosses don’t want here there.


“NBC is going all out for their royal wedding coverage and has only the best correspondents with insider knowledge about the couple and everything going on behind the scenes,” an insider claims to Radar Online.

Kelly, it seems, does not fit this description.

In fact, NBC News President Noah Oppenheim “personally vetoed the request,” Radar writes.

The network is intent on putting together an entire team to be on hand for the wedding and, no doubt, for the days leading up to it.

Kensington Palace has confirmed that Markle will wed Harry on May 19, 2018, with Markle planning on breaking from tradition during her big day.

That’s the sort of major scoop NBC wants to make sure it, ummm, scoops up.

Why wouldn’t it want Kelly to be part of this investigative unit? Per this same network source:

“With NBC putting millions of dollars of resources into the wedding coverage, the last thing that anyone wants is Megyn to be there and say something completely inappropriate on the air which would create its own controversy.”

Kelly’s tenure at her new place of employ has not exactly gone smoothly to date, that much is certain.

She recently received very harsh coverage for the way she BLASTED Jane Fonda on air, slamming the veteran actress for being a hypocrite.

Ratings for Kelly’s hour of Today have also been very weak and there’s been chatter that others at NBC are bitter over how much money she’s making.

Especially when this money is not translating into popularity or viewership.

Overall, folks just don’t seem too keen on Kelly pretending like she’s Kelly Ripa or some TV personality who can casually comment on the news and/or share funny stories from her personal life.

Not after she spent years stirring up controversy as a conservative anchor on Fox News.

This is the fear of higher-ups at NBC apparently.

“She would somehow manage to upstage the royal wedding, and her bosses just aren’t going to take a chance on that,” Radar alleges.

Kelly’s rant against Fonda really does appear to have rubbed executives the wrong way.

“What Megyn is doing is suicide,” an insider previously stated to Radar Online, warning that the host “is welcome to kill her show but she will not be allowed to take down the Today show with her.”

And ain’t no way she’s taking down the MegHar wedding, either!
