Audrey Roloff Skips Jacob Engagement Party, Fuels Feud Rumors

Audrey Roloff often posts about faith and family.

But while the Little People, Big World star clearly has a great deal of the former, we’re definitely starting to believe talk that she has some issues with the latter.

Specifically, we’re pretty certain Audrey and Jacob Roloff do not get along.

Like, at all.

Chatter over whether Audrey and her brother-in-law hate each other started circulating in December, back when the Internet realized that they never appear in photos together.

Like, ever.

This is especially unusual when you consider how often the Roloffs hang out and how often Audrey shares pictures of herself and her loved ones.

So, we got to thinking: Why would Audrey and Jacob not get along?

And there are actually a couple obvious reasons:

1. Audrey is VERY open about her strong faith and religion, while Jacob is either agnostic or atheist. He certainly isn’t a practicing Catholic.

2. Jacob is like Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye: he hates phonies. Remember, two years ago he quit Little People, Big World because he couldn’t stand the scripted nature of the series.

How does point number-two relate to Audrey?

She’s faced some scrutiny from followers who seem to think she exploits her religion to make money.

So this all brings us to the latest reason to believe there really is bad blood between Audrey and Jacob.

Over this past weekend, the family hosted an engagement party for Jacob and Isabel Rock, about four months after the former proposed to the latter during a trip abroad.

And you can guess who didn’t show up, right?

Based on photographs shared on Instagram at least, that is?

Yup: Audrey Roloff.

“We celebrated Jacob and Izzy yesterday! What a great engagement party it was!” Jacob wrote as a caption to the first image in this article.

As you can see above, he’s posing with mother Amy, brother Jacob, daughter Ember and… that’s it.

Could Audrey simply have had other plans? Absolutely.

Could she even have been at the gathering, just not in this picture? Yes.

But there’s starting to be a pattern here.

Considering the divergent personalities of Audrey and Jacob, it’s not far-fetched that they wouldn’t get along. Nor would it even be that huge of a deal.

Who says all in-laws have to get along perfectly well?

We’re just noting here that there’s yet another example of a rivalry within one of television’s most beloved families.

Perhaps Audrey and Jacob will work it out, perhaps not.

Perhaps there’s some smoke here, but no fire… although we doubt it because all talk of a feud could be so easily solved if the stars simply posed in the same picture together.

Not even side by side. Just in the same frame!

Until that happens, however, we’ll continue to speculate and Internet users will continue to ask questions.

That’s just how this all works.


Amy Roloff Throws Engagement Party for Jacob Roloff and Isabel Rock

Recently, Little People, Big World viewers got to see Amy Roloff celebrate her one-year anniversary with boyfriend Chris Marek. That was a big deal for her.

But an even bigger event for the entire Roloff family is Jacob’s engagement to longtime girlfriend Isabel Rock.

And to celebrate, she’s throwing a party. But who’s not getting an invitation?

Sharing this sweet group photo, Amy Roloff writes:

“I’m excited that my friend Jack is in town. We’ll catch up on life over a little coffee and goodies from Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen.”

Her fans and followers are not surprised to see that she is monetizing her social media. Some drag her for it, but hey, good for her for making that money.

“Make your get together a little extra special or share with family and friends by ordering today. Enjoy!”

Then she gets down to business, revealing a major family event.

“We’ll be having a party Sunday to celebrate Jacob and Isabel’s engagement.”

That is so sweet!


Now, none of the Roloff’s have been gushing with details or photos of the party.

(It is perfectly okay for celebrities to designate some activities as private occasions, even something as innocuous as an engagement party)

We do know some details.

For example, Isabel Rock shared this detail about the menu on Twitter:

“Our engagement party is on Earth day, so I requested there be no meat.”

Regardless of your opinions on the ethics of meat consumption, we should all acknowledge that the environmental impact from farming livestock can have a hefty impact on the world.

That includes things like widespread antibiotics use on livestock contributing to drug-resistant bacteria. That includes things like waste from livestock being dumped into rivers or sprayed over large areas (yes, really).

It was wonderful of them to consider that. And if you shudder at the idea of a party without any meat on the menu, remember that cake contains zero meat.

Amy Roloff announced the party, so it’s likely that it took place at her house.

(Which is just a stone’s throw from Matt’s home … which, as we’ve mentioned, gets super awkward for the divorced parents)

Obviously, Zach and Tori are going to be there. They’re even in the photo.

It’s likely that Jeremy and Audrey will be there, despite Auj’s alleged feud with Jacob.

(People think that Isabel may have diffused that feud anyway)

And it seems likely that Matt will show up.

What we don’t know is whether significant others like Caryn Chandler or Chris Marek will be invited.

To avoid conflicts, they might make it a family-only affair.

That isn’t the only big event that Jacob and Isabel have planned for this week.

Though the Roloffs are known for taking lots and lots of photos, Isabel is more likely to snap a photo of one of her paintings than she is to snap a selfie.

(Though, to be clear, she still has plenty of pics of herself)

It seems that on Monday, she and Jacob will be doing what fans interpret to be engagement photos.

As Isabel hinted in this self-depricating tweet:

“I’ve been preparing for like a week to look halfway decent tomorrow and I’ll still end up looking like a f–king potato in all the photos I take.”

We wonder if Jacob writing about his favorite photo of Isabel, which is not her most flattering, was meant to encourage her to be confident about her appearance. That’s so sweet.

Fans responded to Amy’s post by issuing their repeated congratulations.

Many also chimed in that they missed seeing Jacob on Little People, Big World.

The reality series was a major — though certainly not the only — source of contention that drove Jacob to storm off of Roloff Farms a few years ago.

It was only in late 2017 that he began to reconcile with his family.

That reconciliation began just months before his epic Iceland proposal to Isabel.

We don’t know that he’ll show up on the series again any time soon.

Especially since fans have not always been kind to him.


John Cena and Nikki Bella: The Engagement is Over!

Following six years together, John Cena and Nikki Bella have decided to tap out.

The WWE superstars stunned their fans on Sunday upon confirming that they have called off their engagement, along with their romance in general.

“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” Cena and Bella told Us Weekly in a statement, adding simply:

“We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”

A rep for the twosome then announced to the media as a whole:

“After much contemplation and six years of being together Nikki Bella and John Cena announced today their decision to separate as a couple.”

Cena and Bella are yet another tandem whose relationship failed in the wake of a reality show.

They got together way back in 2012 and had their lives, the trials and tribulation documented E!’s Total Divas and Total Bellas.

Just this past January, the wrestlers celebrated their impending wedding via an engagement party, which took place nine months after Cena proposed to Nikki in the middle of the Wrestlemania ring.

“Such a wonderful, meaningful, emotional day yesterday with the woman of my dreams and both of our families,” Cena tweeted the day after their engagement gathering.

He added at the time:

“I love you Nicole, you’ve made me realize the importance of togetherness.”

Yesterday, however, Cena sang a very different tune on social media.

The multiple-time WWE wrestling champion shared a pic of The Simpsons‘ Comic Book Guy character on Instagram, along with the words “Worst Day Ever.”

worst day ever pic

Cena and Bella were spotted in public on April 8, the day of Wrestlemania 34.

They seemed perfectly happy and content at the time, sources have said, making it even more confusing as to what happened in the days since.

On Saturday, April 14, the Blockers actor posted a different Instagram photo of a quote from Walt Whitman that read, “We were together. I forget the rest.”

Sort of weird, huh?

And very mysterious.

Cena is one of the most successful wrestlers in history.

He has also granted more Make-A-Wish dreams than any person ever and has been making a transition to actins ratr the past few years, similar to the transition to smoothly made by Dwayne Johnson.

He had a supporting role in Trainwreck and is among the lead stars in Blockers.

“Relationships are hard,” Cena did tell Us Weekly in March, contiuing:

“Don’t ever think that love is easy. Love is beautiful, but we’ve had to come to the realization after being together for five years that love is not easy.

“We work every day on us. We have our problems just like everybody else. Some of our problems are very public, some of them aren’t. But we work every day on us.

“Anytime I get upset, I always just realize that I can’t live without her and I love her and that’s why I cave in on a lot of stuff.”

Oh well.

They had a great run while it lasted!

We wish both Cena and Bella the best of luck.


Isabel Rock Just Us Cry All the Tears Over Her Engagement to Jacob Roloff

No way, readers.

We aren’t crying.

YOU’RE the ones who are crying.

Actually, to be honest, Isabel Rock is the one who is crying – and you’re about to find out why…

Over the weekend, following many weeks of rumors and Internet chatter, Rock and Jacob Roloff confirmed the news we’d been hoping to hear for so very long:

THEY’RE ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jacob apparently popped the major question back in December during a trip to Iceland, sharing a photo from the couple’s adventure on Instagram Sunday evening while announcing the special development.

“…we got ENGAGED! It happened in Iceland on the frozen pond, Tjörnin, late on Christmas,” Roloff explained as a caption at the time, while Isabel added a diamond ring emoji on her page and the following confirmation:

“We are finally ready to share with everyone… WE ARE ENGAGED!!!”

Amy Roloff reacted to the engagement with major excitement, as did fans who practically watched Jacob grow up on Little People, Big World.

Isabel, meanwhile, just explained to followers why she reacted with a different kind of emotion.

Of course she’s over the moon happy to eventually be Jacob’s wife, but there’s a very specific reason why this is a bittersweet moment for her as well.

In a text message exchange Rock shared on her Instagram stories, a family friend let her know that Isabel’s late mother, Toni Garreton, would have definitely approved of her fiancé.

“I know you’ve probably heard this a lot already but your mom would be really happy,” the friend texted, adding for emphasis:

“She would’ve LOVED Jacob.”

“Oh my gosh that makes me so happy especially because you knew her so well and you’d know more than anyone,” Rock responded.

rock message

Isabel lost her mother to cancer in 2014.

She’s been open in the past about how difficult it was to say goodbye to this loved one, partly because her mother would never have a chance to meet the love of her life.

In a blog post titled “Happy,” which Rock published in July of 2017, Isabel reflected on how important it has been for her to keep her happiness even in the wake of such a major loss.

Then, in October of last year, Rock shared the following picture on Instagram:

She wrote as a sentimental caption:

Captioning this photo “I miss my mom” is a bit too obvious and repetitive to all of the posts I’ve ever written about her. She was my best friend.

I know everybody says that about their mom but I mean we did everything together. Friends would ask me to hangout and almost always I would’ve rather hung out with her.

Now I know why, I didn’t have much time. I especially miss the deep talks about life, singing in the car, house hunting on Sundays where we’d go to all of the super fancy open houses and pretend we were going to buy them.

I’d always say “I call this room!” and we’d giggle and laugh the car ride home.

I remember one time in particular after one of those days I said to her, through tearful eyes, “Mom, I know you are sick but you have to grow old enough for me to write my book, and then I’ll have the money to build your dream house. It’ll be just like those fancy ones but better, exactly how you’d want it.”

She’d just smile her warm, comforting smile.

I still want to build you that dream house, Mama. Just now you’ll be able to appreciate it in a different way.

Beautiful stuff.

We send the very best to Jacob and Isabel on their engagement.


Amy Roloff Congratulates Jacob Roloff & Isabel Rock on Their Engagement!

On Sunday, fans of Little People, Big World were so pleased to see that Jacob Roloff is engaged to girlfriend Isabel Rock.

It’s big news for Roloff family’s (former?) black sheep. And his mom, with whom he’s recently repaired his relationship, has taken to Instagram to offer big congratulations.

Amy Roloff’s persistent haters will be pleased to know that Amy Roloff isn’t “exploiting” Jacob to sell bread … this time.

When Jacob Roloff began to reconnect with his family, the first big clue was when he began hanging out with his mom again.

Fans knew that Jacob was back in his mom’s life because Amy Roloff shared a photo with Jacob Roloff’s dog. At the time, it seemed that Jacob wasn’t ready to be part of the family brand again just yet.

Now, he’s come a long way.

Jacob Roloff had a birthday celebration with his mom Amy and the whole family (except for Matt).

He even buried the hatchet with sister-in-law Audrey Roloff, more or less quashing the feud rumors that had followed them both.

And if you worried that Jacob’s dad missed his 21st birthday altogether, fear not. He just wasn’t there for the early celebration at Amy’s.

In fact, Matt and Amy set aside their differences to celebrate Jacob’s birthday. Not exactly the wild party that most people picture for a 21st birthday, but maybe he did that, too.

But the big news, of course, is that Jacob is now engaged to his girlfriend, Isabel Rock.

Back in September, Isabel made reference to a “life-changing decision” on Instagram.

That could have meant all sorts of things, including a reference to spending more time with Jacob’s family.

But many fans wondered at the time if Isabel was referring to an engagement between her and Jacob. Marriage — and the engagements that lead up to such a union — is definitely life-changing.

However, they didn’t get engaged in September. They also didn’t get engaged over the weekend, even though they shared the news on Sunday.

No, Jacob and Isabel got engaged while in Iceland. That sounds like a beautiful place for a proposal.

Amy took to Instagram and celebrated the news in her captions.

“And this happened! I couldn’t be a happier mom!”

Of course — Jeremy is married to Audrey, Zach is married to Tori, Molly is married to Joel (don’t forget Molly and Joel!), and now:

“My youngest- Jacob and the beautiful Isabel are engaged.”

21 is very young to be engaged, but it’s exciting nonetheless. And Jacob and Isabel are so sweet.

Amy’s over the moon about it.

“Love them both and excited to see where life will take them in their marriage!”

Amy included numerous, perhaps excessive, hashtags in her captions:

“#amyssecondactcontinues #engagedtomarry #forthroloffwedding #love [two red heart emojis] #wonderfultogether @moniqueserraphotography”

Even if Amy or any of the other Roloffs have private objections — maybe Jacob really is too young, after all — it’s always best to be encouraging.

If things work out, you’re not the bad guy. If things don’t work out, you can say “oh no!” and still not be the bad guy. It’s win-win.

But we don’t think that Amy’s biting her tongue. She seems genuinely enthused. And why wouldn’t she be? Jacob and Isabel found each other and now they’re both in Amy’s life.

Some, however, feel that Audrey Roloff’s new Instagram post was an epic vaguepost about Jacob and Isabel.

“Some words on dating from a Christian perspective…”

That’s exactly how fans familiar with her brand would expect Audrey’s post to begin.

“Let’s just say you recently hurried into a relationship, dabbled with sexual intimacy, and then became emotionally attached.”

That sounds like … what dating usually is.

“The main problem with this scenario is that it blinds you to red flags. It’s the classic ‘love at first sight’ trap.”

I can’t say that I always see eye-to-eye with Audrey, but … she’s not wrong about that part.

“You begin to see the person you are dating as the “the most talented, most interesting, and most extraordinary person in the universe” (If you don’t get that reference, please go watch The Lego Movie after you finish this book. It’s sure to solve all your dating problems).”

If this is a thinly veiled attack on Jacob and his fiancee, it might be the first vaguepost we’ve ever seen that references The Lego Movie.

Her advice at this point is just to listen to your friends and family when they warn you about the person you’re dating. But, like the words of one’s friends and family, that’s as likely as anything to fall on deaf ears when somebody’s head over heels.

So … is Audrey really vagueing about Isabel Rock?

Well … she could be, sure.

Or she could be making a jab at Jacob, the one with whom she’s (allegedly) had issues in the past. Maybe she tried to warn Isabel that Jacob’s “no good.” And she does write this advice as directed at women.

But, quite frankly, we have no idea and we shouldn’t rush to conclusions.

Audrey may have not even thought of possible parallels to her family when she wrote this. Remember, she must have known about the couple’s engagement for a while, now.

And surely, if she were going to throw shade, she’d be a little more subtle about it.

… Right?
