Little People, Big World Fans are Aghast Amy Roloff is Doing THIS to Matt Roloff

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.

Little People, Big World Recap: Is Matt Outta Here?

In our recap of the first new episode of Little People, Big World in months, we posed the following question:

Is Amy Roloff moving off the farm?

The veteran reality TV star expressed concern on the spring premiere about awkwardness with ex-husband Matt, considering he was dating a former acquaintance of hers and considering close to each other Matt and Amy still lived.

Following last night’s installment of this popular TLC series, however, we now have a different, albeit related, question to pose:

Is Matt Roloff moving off the farm?!?

You see, Amy and Matt reside about 500 feet from one another.

It’s an unusual set-up, but it allows both parties to continue working on the family farm in various capacities.

On Tuesday, though, Matt emphasized his main issue with this arrangement, which is that he’s stuck in a relatively small home and Amy is living in the home in which the couple raised its four kids.

It “makes sense, but it wasn’t supposed to be permanent,” Matt explained to the camera. “I mean, I’m living 500 feet from my ex. It’s awkward.”

This has been the case since the couple split up in May of 2016, following over 25 years of marriage.

So, what changed?

Why have Amy and Matt gone from mostly amicable to… less than amicable?

Both are in serious relationship; the former has been dating Chris Marek for over a year and the latter is with Caryn Chandler.

It’s understandable that these romances might run into the occasional hiccup when one thinks about the aforementioned living situation.

“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,” Matt added on Tuesday evening, confessing:

“It’s not easy. I’ve been on this farm more than half my life.”

Over the past several months, however, sons Zach and Jeremy have welcomed a son and a daughter, respectively, making Matt a grandfather and making it hard for him to think about moving too far away from these kids.

“I don’t know what the next step is, so that’s the challenge I’m living in,” he said on air.

Could he construct a little person-accessible house somewhere else on the farm?

Yes, but Matt would first need Amy’s permission because she co-owns the property.

“Our lives are always going to be intertwined because of the farm, and we have to work together,” he said. “So we have to talk about it and make sure she’s on board.”

Enter a big argument between the exes.

“I’m like, why is this coming at me now? What’s the purpose?” Amy said in a confessional about Matt’s proposed new house, adding:

“I think for me, my guard goes up all the time, because I always feel like there’s something missing here. I know it.”

We’re not certain what Amy meant by this.

Perhaps that she took the request as a way of Matt saying he wanted to propose to Caryn?

“Because I don’t have all the facts or all the information. Every businessperson would tell you that’s not a good way to make a decision,” Amy said to her former husband when asked why she had a problem.

“This little moment reminds me why we’re divorced,” Matt replied.

Later in the episode, Matt and Caryn looked at a few properties together.

“Am I gonna move off the farm? It’s tough thinking about spending eternity, or whatever that means, here with Amy,” he said, concluding:

“Now that Amy and I are divorced, I just want my own path that’s separate from Amy’s. It really has to do with just creating a little more balance in my own life.”

Elsewhere on the kinda intense installment:

With Jeremy and Audrey’s daughter set to be born any day, Amy grappled with her decision to travel with Chris and risk missing the birth — and Zach and Tori embarked on their first family trip together.

Pink Has Been Named Most Beautiful Woman in the World

Through the years, it’s been proven that Pink can make us cry.

She can also make us stand up and cheer.

But can she make men around the world drool and perhaps reach for a box of Kleenex in anticipation of pleasuring themselves to her appearance?

Yes, according to the latest issue of People Magazine.

The publication features Pink and her two kids (Willow, 6, and Jameson, 1) on the cover — and while it doesn’t come straight out and label the singer as The Most Beautiful Woman in the World…

… it essentially is doing exactly this.

People Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle says this annual issue has undergone a bit of an evolution, but the general theme and premise remain the same.

“Over the years, the name of the issue has evolved (‘50 Most Beautiful,’ ‘Most Beautiful Woman,’ etc.), but the words ‘Most Beautiful’ have always been part of the title,” he said, adding:

“This year we’re renaming it ‘The Beautiful Issue’ – to make clear that the issue is not a beauty contest. Nothing else has changed.”

Okay.

So why select Pink to represent a celebration of “strength, humanity and artistry,” as Cagle explains?

Because she’s “a woman who checks all those boxes,” he says.

“She’s a performer, mother and role model whose honesty, humor, confidence and sheer star power make her one of the most beloved and fascinating entertainers on the planet.”

No argument here. We adore Pink.

But the singer wasn’t interested in discussing her beauty or sex appeal with People.

Instead, she wants to discuss her her role as a mom.

“The thing about parenting is you never know if anything you’re doing is working,” she says in this cover story.

“That’s been the most humbling thing for me. In my head, I sound amazing and then I turn around and her eyes are completely glazed over. I have no idea. We’ll see.”

None of us do, Pink. All we can do is what we think is best for our kids in the moment.

Adds Pink, in regard to her young children:

“I believe in affection. I believe in needs being met and faith being implemented, and I believe in letting your kids know they can count on you, and that you’ll be there.

“My parents did not believe in that and I worked out okay.

“I always tell Willow, ‘I’m going to teach you the rules so that you’ll know how and when to break them.”

This honor comes on the heels of Pink knocking her national anthem out of the park at the Super Bowl in February.

Watch this incredible performance below:

With this distinction, meanwhile, Pink joins quite the impressive group.

Do you think she deserves it? Is the The Most Beautiful Woman in the World?

Julia Roberts was awarded Most Beautiful in the World by People last year for the fifth time.

In 2016, Jennifer Aniston earned the title, which People started hanging out back in 1990, with Michelle Pfeiffer taking home the inaugural title.

Like we said: quite the impressive group.

Go back in time and relive each woman who has risen above the rest, starting with Pfeiffer and ending here with Pink, on the following gorgeous photo gallery:

Little People, Big World Recap: An Adventurous Anniversary

Amy Roloff leaped out of an airplane on Little People, Big World this week.

But the overarching question on the latest installment of this TLC series was this:

Will she and boyfriend Chris Marek take a different sort of plunge down the line?

Will they take a leap of faith and love and actually get married?

The topic hovered over the episode because Amy and Chris celebrated their one-year anniversary on air.

“I’m like, one year already? Damn we did a lot, this went by fast,” Roloff told the camera at one point, adding:

“We’ve just been having a good time together, simple things, big things. I really like and enjoy being with him.”

That’s been clear for awhile now.

Amy has constantly updated her Instagram page with photos of herself and Chris, often including the hashtag #amyssecondactcontinues and ignoring the trolls who hate Marek.

We’re actually nearing the two-year anniversary of Amy and Matt Roloff finalizing their divorce, a development that still has ramifications for each primary party.

It’s clear the split, following over 25 years of marriage, still effects both Amy and Matt significantly.

“Divorce was a very traumatic chapter in my life,” Amy said last night, explaining further:

“I didn’t think I would ever even want to be that vulnerable with someone again. But now being with Chris, I like the fact that I’m able to open up myself to someone else.”

Does this mean there really is a long, long-term future:

As in: Could wedding bells be ringing down the line for Amy and Chris?

“My relationship with Chris means the world to me, but nothing is written in stone right now,” she said. “Especially because he initially said he wanted to take it one day at a time.”

Well, sure, fine. Initially.

But now it’s been a year (or over a year, really, considering this episode was filmed in the middle of 2017) now and Marek is very obviously committed.

Perhaps to prove this point, Marek agreed to go skydiving with Amy in celebration of their anniversary, a decision that Amy said is symbolic of her boyfriend and her romance overall.

“I think the biggest difference in this relationship versus my marriage, is that Chris brings out the adventurous side of me that has been on hold for me for many years,” Amy said.

Added Roloff:

“I’ve always been adventurous, but what Chris does is open me up to new things.

“I don’t really remember doing a lot of this with Matt. He was just so focused on work or doing projects. Being aggressive is good, that’s how you get to do the things you want to do.

“But you have to realize it can come at a cost. And I think it definitely came at a cost.”

This wasn’t really a shot at Matt, either.

Considering Matt’s girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, made the same point during the episode.

“Work is in Matt’s DNA, it always will be,” Chandler told the camera yesterday evening, expounding as follows:

“I actually love that drive in him. He can get carried away, anyone can get carried away. But he loves to work – it’s kind of his hobby.”

Despite Matt’s job responsibilities, Caryn made it her mission for them to get away and take day trip to the beach on the installment.

“I really like and appreciate the fact that she wants to spend personal time with me,” Matt said.

“It really warms my heart. Amy and I had some compatibility when the kids were born. But looking back after the kids were gone, we realized we don’t really have a lot in common and we are different people.

“We are very different people. So it feels good to be in a situation where you feel compatible on many levels.”

The theme of Amy versus Matt continued in this case, with the latter reflecting on his marriage and his post-marriage life:

“I have to figure out how to tame the best. Just [Caryn’s] energy soothes the savage beast.

“My passion has gotten in the way of my personal life over many, many years, and it sometimes that’s a detriment to the people around me. But I don’t want to make the same mistakes as I did with Amy.

“Caryn soothes me tremendously in that she knows how to balance me.”

Elsewhere on this episode, Zach wanted to prove his love for Tori, while Audrey grew nervous… just two weeks away from delivery of her baby.

Little People, Big World Recap: Amy Comes Clean About Caryn

The spotlight remained on Amy Roloff this week.

On the second new episode this spring of Little People, Big World, the family matriarch was once again the main cast member featured…

… and she once again spoke candidly about how awkward things can be with ex-husband Matt.

A week ago, Amy talked openly about how she’s considered moving off the family farm to get away from Matt.

Not because she has any especially hard feelings regarding the couple’s split, but because Matt is dating Caryn Chandler.

As long-time fans of this series and this family know well, Chandler got to know Amy and Matt long before they divorced in May of 2016.

She works as the manager on the farm, creating quite a bit of tension by then actually getting together with Matt romantically.

Amy has done her best to make the situation work, never bad-mouthing the couple in public or anything… but it’s clearly a strange set-up.

“Caryn is an employee and in a personal relationship with my ex-husband, so it is still hard to invite Caryn to some of the family events,” Roloff said on Tuesday evening’s installment, adding simply and honestly:

“I’d rather minimize the personal interaction. It’s not healthy for me.”

This is as open as Amy has ever been about Matt and Caryn, who are pictured below and who may even be engaged.

The family event in question on the episode was a baby shower for daughter Audrey.

Amy wanted to throw one for the mother-to-be and was torn on whether or not to invite Caryn.

“Even though it’s a challenge with Matt and I living on the farm together, being divorced but still business partners, we are still doing our best to communicate with one another,” she said on camera.

“I’m not sure for me if it will ever be as easy as I like to talk to him, whether it be business or otherwise, but we do make sure that if we’re having a family gathering that we both each know about it.”

This is a helpful way to approach the relationship.

But that doesn’t mean it’s always easy.

It’s worth also mentioning, of course, that Amy is very happy in her own romance with Chris Marek.

On last night’s episode, she spent time planning his birthday party.

Still, however, a bulk of the hour was spent trying to deal with Caryn and Matt and what to do about the baby shower.

“It is hard for me to say, ‘Yeah, go ahead and invite Caryn,’ because it is someone I’ve known for a long time,” she explained.

“Matt’s worked with her for many, many years, and that will always hurt to some degree, but it’s something that I will have to be an adult about it.”

Eventually, Amy chose to invite Caryn…

… but Caryn actually had other plans and could not attend.

“This is new to me,” she said. “It’s new to all of us, and I think we’re just treading lightly and doing the best that we can.”

Elsewhere on the episode, Tori was nervous to parent when Zach had to go away and Jeremy came close to finishing his home repairs.
