It’s been known for several months now that Amy Roloff and Matt Roloff share a unique living situation.
The reality stars got divorced in May of 2016, yet have continued to reside very close to each other on the family farm.
However, Little People, Big World fans learned two new things about this arrangement on Tuesday night’s episode:
ONE: Amy and Matt only live, like, 500 feet apart.
TWO: Amy resides in the home in which she and Matt raised their kids; while Matt resides in a much smaller house.
It’s been this way for nearly two years now, but Matt admitted on Little People, Big World this week that things have gotten especially awkward now that both halves of the ex-couple are in serious relationships.
“It wasn’t supposed to be permanent,” Matt said on camera about the circumstances, adding:
“I’m either at a place now where I need to dig in my roots further on the farm and build a house that suits me, or I need to think about finding real estate off the farm.”
Along those lines, Matt and girlfriend Caryn Chandler looked a few properties toward the end of this latest episode.
Will Matt really move away?
He’s hesitant to go too far because he wants to stay close to grandkids Ember and Jackson.
And while Matt weighs his options, Little People, Big World viewers have taken to social media to drag Amy for putting her ex-husband in this unfortunate bind.
“Amy should not have the house he should be able to buy her out!!” wrote one Internet user following the episode, while another shared this sentiment:
“He has more medical issues… he does more of the work on the property anyway!!! I would never have agreed to let her live there. She is so combative and her attitude is negative!
This same individual told Amy to go shack upwith her boyfriend, writing:
“Live with Chris, Amy!!! [It’s] a family farm.”
For whatever reason, it really does seem as though fans of this TLC series don’t like Amy very much.
In this case, they’re giving her a hard time for simply sticking to the terms of an agreement she and Matt made together a long time ago.
In past cases, they gave her a hard time for… showing off her Easter dinner table?!? Yes.
“It’s sad to see you put Chris in your home your Matt built for y’all and the kids!!” one person commented, continuing to blast the star as follows:
“It’s so [disrespectful] I could never do that to my ex-husband or my kids.”
Pictured here with Chris Marek, Amy Roloff simply can’t watch a break from many television viewers.
To Amy’s credit, she has never responded to this misguided vitriol.
She has always taken the high road — or no road at all, even, simply ignoring the online hate and going about her business.
It’s also worth mentioning that this Little People, Big World episode was filmed many months ago.
Matt has not raised the living issue since in public, making it apparent that there’s no real beef here. His complaints at the time may have been scripted by producers for the sake of drama or ratings.
Therefore, if Matt doesn’t really have a problem with his living arrangement, why would anyone who has never even met these problems speak up about it?
Take a chill pill, trolls.
