A couple of weeks ago, Little People, Big World star Amy Roloff actually defended her ex-husband, Matt Roloff. Things between the two of them seemed better.
But ever since boyfriend Chris Marek was conspicuously absent from her Fourth of July photos, fans have worried that things between Amy and her love are worse.
Fortunately, Amy has found a gentle way to lay those rumors to rest.
“This guy!” Amy Roloff writes under this cozy photo of her with Chris, quashing breakup rumors without ever having to acknowledge them.
Amy’s post continues, as she gushes: “What a fun time at his family reunion picnic yesterday!”
Attending a family reunion with someone is usually a big deal — if you’re both adults, anyway. It’s like a magnified version of introducing someone to your parents.
“Yes they loved my Oregon Bounty,” Amy writes. “Marion Berry loaf and Hazelnut cookies and Lemon cookies from Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen.”
If you don’t love Amy Roloff at her shameless product placement on social media, you don’t deserve her the rest of the time.
“Woohoo!” Amy says. “I was excited about that and being with him.”
“So excited for you,” one fan commented. “You found a very nice person. Your family is awesome.”
“So cute what a great couple!” another fan exclaimed. “You guys look great!”
Someone else decided to ask an impertinent question, writing: “Will you guys get married?”
Don’t be pushy, folks.
“Love the fact that ure much happier now. Best of luck. Been watching the series for years,” another fan commented.
Some fans also wrote to Amy that her description of the food that she brought to his reunion really sounded appetizing.
Amy has international fans, and some asked if her products were available in the UK or in Australia. We’re sure that she was heartened to see these messages.
Others offered some unsolicited advice on how Amy should get along with Matt and let go of her anger.
That’s all fine and well … if she asks for your opinion. If you’re not her friend or her therapist, what business do you have giving her life advice?
It seems that, no matter what Amy does, some commenters will never be satisfied.
Just because two people are dating doesn’t mean that they have to attend every single event together or be in every photo together.
For reference, see: what your parents told you when you wanted to bring a date on your family vacation in high school.
So Chirs didn’t have to appear in pics with Amy on Independence Day. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love Amy — or America.
If Amy had addressed the rumors, that would have seemed confrontational to fans — and might have seemed to lend legitimacy to them.
Instead, Amy just found a way to shut them down without addressing them.
And she included a little product integration in the process.
Fans are happy to see Amy with Chris for a lot of reasons — and some of them just didn’t like Matt. Or, at least, they didn’t like the way that he treated her.
We all recently saw Matt portray Amy as being dumb, so that kind of insulting behavior is fresh on the minds of fans.
Of course, there are also some trolls who like to give Amy a hard time about her relationshipw ith Chris.
They seem to be “convinced” that Chris is just using Amy for fame.
The reality is probably that these trolls are suspicious of a man who would date a little person because they are projecting their own bigotry onto him.
We’re glad to hear that Amy and Chris had a good time at the reunion.
