Matt Roloff has previously revealed that he and his ex-wife Amy Roloff act in a more dramatic way for the camera.
Old habits die hard and that can be true in the case of people who have been married for years and then parted ways. It's likely that they fall back into old patterns when they interact with each other. Little People Big World's protagonists, Matt and Amy Roloff, who have been divorced for a few years now, might be susceptible to this behavior, as Matt's girlfriend Caryn Chandler has pointed out.
The reality TV series, which has run for 21 seasons, has captured the struggles of the Oregon-based Roloff family. During the show, Matt and Amy went separate ways but they were still living on the farm they lovingly built. They often disagree with each other about how to run the farm and on other topics as well. A new season is around the corner and Caryn can be seen calling out Matt in the sneak peek.
Amy has leveled accusations against Matt that he exchanged inappropriate messages and photos with Caryn even before they got divorced. She has also explicitly said that being around Caryn, who used to work at the farm, during family events is not good for her mental health, according to CheatSheet.
"Matt’s worked with her for many many years," Amy said of Caryn. "So that will always hurt to some degree. But it is something that I will have to be an adult about — doesn’t mean I have to accept it."
Amy is not alone in her dislike, because it's mutual. Caryn has said that even though she's open to living on the farm, she would never live in the big farmhouse, as that’s where Amy lived. "I would never live in the big house. Ever. Put a pin in that," she said.
The new season will have scenes about Matt and Amy going at each other over her taking time to move out of the house where she used to live for 30 years. It took her a while to find the right house to move into with her fiance Chris Marek. Even after that, it took her more time to pack up and leave.
The Roloff matriarch tells the camera that she's overwhelmed about the move and the sneak peek then delves into the fight between the former spouses. "She has trouble just letting go in general," Matt says. "That’s something she has to work through on her own time," he added.
They are seen fighting again over the property. "We both own the property,” Amy yells at Matt. “We’re both invested in it." Matt tells her, "I wish you wouldn’t be so defensive."
“I wish you wouldn’t be so pushy,” Amy fights back. Caryn notices the argument and when Matt seeks support from her saying, "Wow, she came in hot" is when his girlfriend calls him out. "Sometimes, I feel like you’re still married to her," Caryn comments.
Amy can be seen walking off after that. However, Matt has revealed previously that he and Amy create drama for the camera. "When Amy and I argued about whether it’s a neck or a flag lot, we were just trying to make television," Matt said, according to In Touch Weekly. "We know that those are the kinds of arguments back-and-forth that create interest and people like to hear," he added.
And, it seems that Caryn agrees because she has been able to set aside any real or unreal dislike she has for Amy. "You know, time heals, and so everything is moving in a good trajectory right now,” Caryn told Us Weekly. "There’s no hard feelings, everybody’s working hard. We all love their grandchildren, and we’re together sometimes, and we make it pleasant, and I’m super, super happy for them. I think that this is something Amy wanted, and I’m glad for her."
The show returns on September 29.
