Little People, Big World: Will Matt and Amy Sell Roloff Farms?

Three generations of the Roloff family have enjoyed Roloff Farms.

But now, fans are terrified that Little People, Big World stars Matt Roloff and his ex-wife, Amy Roloff, will sell the farm.

They have a lot of reasons to worry — because Matt and Amy have both openly discussed the diea.

So, what is the future of Roloff Farms?

Let's take a look at what we know — and what fans fear.

1. Roloff Farms is the family home

“There’s part of me that wants to keep the farm and build a house that suits me, but part of me just wants to sell the farm and liquidate it and move on. It’s a burden.”

4. Amy has her own life now

Matt Roloff: I’m Loving Life in Arizona!

Matt Roloff has made it very clear in his latest Instagram post:

He may never return to Oregon.

No, the Little People, Big World patriarch did not come out and say this directly.

He didn’t even imply it, really.

We’re just reading between the lines a little bit here, based on some of the rumors we’ve heard; some of the news that has been leaking out; and some of Matt’s own words.

Roloff has said himself that he’s moving to Arizona, having reportedly purchased a home there that formerly belonged to the parents of his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler.

He’s been spending a lot of time in this state — and, as you can tell by the photo above, he’s having himself a blast there.

“Must admit… I love the hot temps with the low humidity. Today 109 with 11%,” wrote Roloff as a caption to this image.

Holy hotness, huh?!?

But at least it was a dry heat.

Matt is a busy man these days.

And he’s not busy doing anything on his family’s farm, which is a pretty huge change for the veteran reality star.

Roloff is actually about to embark on a book tour, telling Instagram followers that he may soon be coming to their city in order to meet them, greet them and sign some autographs.

What does this all mean for the future of Little People, Big World?

That’s what we’ve been wondering for awhile now.

Over the past several installments of this TLC hit, both Matt and ex-wife Amy have expressed some doubts over where things are going.

Said the latter a few weeks ago, for example:

“I don’t know what the future of the farm really holds…  it’s a challenge sometimes with Matt and I living on the farm together, being divorced and everything.”

Amy and Matt are both in serious relationships, the former with Chris Marek and the latter with Chandler.

They’ve been living within just a couple hundred yards of each other for years now, despite their divorce and despite some understandable tension that exists between the exes.

They do mostly get along, but they sometimes clash pretty hard over their shared business.

Of course, the ex-spouses also have two grandkids, Jackson and Ember, both of whom reside in Oregon.

Would Matt really move far away for extended periods of time?

It seems a little hard to believe when you consider how close he is to these toddlers.

Case in point:

But Arizona is clearly calling on occasion and Matt is very happy to answer.

TLC is yet to make any announcements about the future of Little People, Big World, leaving fans to wonder whether it will return after this current run of episodes is over.

It’s not as though it hasn’t enjoyed a terrific run, of course.

Heck, it’s helped the family set a world record!

If this will soon be the end, the series has had quite a run, that’s for certain.

Matt Roloff Makes Huge Announcement About His Future

Matt Roloff really does seem to be moving on from life on the farm.

Over the past several weeks, it’s been made more and more apparent that the Little People, Big World patriarch is ready to expand his professional and personal horizons past the place he’s called home for decades.

For as long as we’ve known Matt certainly, he has lived and worked on Roloff Farms.

But the past few episodes of this TLC reality series have crystallized the problems in this arrangement, as both Matt and his ex-wife have complained about living in such close proximity to each other.

The future of the farm truly does appear to be in question, especially when Amy comes out and makes remarks such as the following:

“I don’t know what the future of the farm really holds…  it’s a challenge sometimes with Matt and I living on the farm together, being divorced and everything.”

Amy made that statement on the most recent installment of Little People, Big World.

Making matters even more intriguing and complicated in terms of where the farm and its owners are headed?

Matt has confirmed that he’s headed south!

Roloff recently said he’s moving to Arizona for at least part of the year.

Insiders have reported that Matt and girlfriend Caryn Chandler purchased a home there, prompting speculation that the couple is engaged or may soon be engaged.

But we’re not here to wonder about the state of this romance.

We’re here to talk more at length about Matt bidding farewell to his farm.

Despite the weather being very nice in Oregon right now, for example, Roloff is spending time in Arizona, writing as a caption to the first Instagram photo above:

“Hi all my Arizona friends… anyone that missed my last book signing at the Barnes and Nobel in Surprise AZ … or if we ran out of books before you got yours. I’ll be there again tomorrow (sat 6/30) from 11am – 1:30).

“This time there should be plenty of books (hopefully). And I’ll sign your copy and do a meet n greet.”

Matt is referring to the children’s book “Little Lucy Big Race” that he wrote and released last year.

He really seems to be embracing the life of an author, adding a pretty huge announcement to this caption:

“Also we are in the planning stages of a multi city book reading tour in August. Stay tuned we may be in Your city soon!”

Wow. How exciting, right?!?

Also also how worrisome if you don’t want to see Little People, Big World change in any way.

When you consider Roloff making money via signings and book sales, along what seems to have been a long-planned move away from his farm, it becomes hard to imagine this show remaining the same.

Matt is yearning to move on. Amy is involved in a serious relationship with Chris Marek.

Nearly every family member is making major life decisions these days.

So here’s an idea:

Perhaps TLC should spinoff either Jeremy and Audrey Roloff; or Zach and Tori Roloff; or even both couples at once.

Just because Amy and Matt may wish to move on, this doesn’t mean the Little People, Big World universe has to end.

Who among us would not be rapt by a series that focuses on how these twosomes are raising precious little Ember and/or precious little Jackson?

We certainly would be.

Matt Cappotelli, Former WWE Tough Enough Winner, Dead at 38

Matt Cappotelli, the winner of WWE’s Tough Enough Season 3, lost his brave battle with cancer on Friday morning,

He was 38 years old.

This sad piece of news was confirmed a couple hours ago by Cappotelli’s wife, Lindsay, who wrote in a statement:

“Today my love-my strong, sweet, beautiful love-took his last breath at 3:30 a.m. and went Home to be with Jesus exactly one year after his brain surgery.

“You think you can be prepared for this when you know it’s coming, but you just can’t.

“The only person who’s comfort I want right now is the one who can’t give it to me. I miss him so much. I know where he is now is so much better, but it doesn’t change how much I miss him.”

Cappotelli underwent a second surgery to remove a brain tumor about a year ago, in June of 2017.

This procedure took place a decade after he had another one removed and, as a result, was forced to cut his professional wrestling career short.

Tragically, though, this surgery did not solve the health problem.

In December, Cappotelli was told he had a Grade 4 tumor that was too close to his brain to operate.

He knew his days were numbered after this diagnosis.

Tough Enough, meanwhile, was a reality-type show that the WWE owned and operated.

It pitted a number of aspiring grapplers against each other, with the winner each season earning a WWE contract and a shot at true stardom.

Think American Idol, but for the wrestling world.

After winning Season 3, Cappotelli made multiple appearances on Monday Night Raw and went on work with developing talent in Ohio Valley Wrestling.

However, the Louislve resident retired professionally as a wrestler in 2007 due to these health concerns.

In response to his passing, numerous WWE stars and others who knew Matt well paid him tribute on Twitter.

Matt Cappotelli,

WWE star Kassius Ohno wrote:

“Crushed to hear about the passing of Matt Cappotelli. He was talented, passionate & possessed a heart of GOLD.

“Everyone should fight as hard as Matt fought. Condolences to his friends, family & the countless others he touched on his journey. Rest In Peace Capp.”

And then there was this from Bill DeMott:

“I’m heart broken with the news of the passing of Matt Cappotelli. He is an inspiring young man that touched so many with his smile, his heart, and his faith.

“My love and prayers go out to Matts wife Lindsay and the family. #TeamCapp #RIPMAtt.”

Cappotelli’s passing comes just about a week after WWE legend Vader also passed away.

May Matt Cappotelli rest in peace.

Matt Lauer Actually Thinks People Want to See Him on TV Again

Matt Lauer reportedly thinks enough time has gone by for no one to care any longer that he’s an (alleged) rapist and (alleged) serial sexual harasser.

Seriously, folks:

The disgraced former Today Show host is (allegedly) plotting his return to television.

Lauer, of course, was fired by NBC in November after allegations from an ex-Today staffer surfaced in which she accused Lauer of acting in a very inappropriate manner toward her.

At the time, NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack said he and his fellow executives didn’t hesitate to make this decision… largely because they had reason to believe Lauer had acted in a very inappropriate manner on many occasions.

Toward many ex and current staffers.

This is what Lack said upon canning the long-time anchor:

On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer. It represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards.

As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.

While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over twenty years he’s been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.

Since this development, numerous other reports have detailed a handful of Lauer’s supposedly heinous actions; from gifting interns with sex toys… to carrying on an affair with a subordinate… to, in one case, flat-out raping someone.

We can’t say for certain which of these accusations are legitimate and which are inaccurate.

But it’s been widely accepted by nearly everyone at this point that Matt Lauer is a rather terrible and egotistical human being who frequently abused his power at NBC.

Whatever, though, Lauer thinks these days!

That was, like, seven months ago!

“Matt and his people think if enough time passes, he will be forgiven,” a source tells Radar Online, adding:

“He believes the only thing he’s guilty of was engaging in a consensual affair in the office.

“His view is that he was unfairly caught up in the rash of #MeToo abusers and did nothing that merited getting fired.”

We’d LOVE to see Lauer make this argument in public.

For the first few months after he got fired, Lauer basically lived in exile, hanging out around his house in Long Island and staying far out of the spotlight.

More recently, however, he’s been spotted around NBC’s Rockefeller Center studios in Manhattan, probably just to passive aggressively remind folks in the business that he still exists.

Although this same update claims that Lauer is also being actively aggressive.

“Matt’s been meeting with loads of his former producers, including Deborah Kosofsky – and Don Nash, who was also fired by the show,” an insider tells Radar.

After Hoda Kotb was announced as Lauer’s permanent replacement, ratings for Today soared.

But they have since leveled off and the show is once again getting beat each week by Good Morning America.

“Matt believes those numbers should be more than enough to convince the network to bring him back,” the source said, concluding ominously:

“Matt is certain he can work his way back to the top anchor spot in time. He is convinced he’ll be back on TV by the end of the year!”

We’d say this sounds crazy, but have you seen who is in the White House?

Anything is possible.
