Little People, Big World is back with more Roloff family drama. So far, in the twentieth season, we have seen Amy Roloff find a new home, as she is still working to leave Roloff Farms after her divorce from Matt Roloff. And Matt and his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, are still going strong – although sometimes there seems to be some animosity between Chandler and Amy Roloff.
Aside from Amy and Matt Roloff, we’re also keeping up with Zach and Tori Roloff. And Tori recently went to the hospital to deliver their baby, Lilah, during the show. When Zach and Tori found out that Tori was in the hospital, they had Matt, Amy and Chandler assist with their son Jackson. And Amy Roloff noticed that everyone gets together when it’s most needed.
Little People, Big World: Amy Wrote About Matt’s Scandalous Relationship With Caryn
Matt Roloff and Amy Roloff were married for several decades before they separated. And Amy wrote about the divorce in her memoir, A Little Me. According to Amy, there was another woman involved with Matt Roloff before the separation – and the woman in question was a farm manager at Roloff Farms. Those who watched the show know that Caryn Chandler worked on the farm before he was with Matt Roloff, and that’s all the rehearsal fans needed to know to assume Amy Roloff was talking about her.
“I saw messages, pictures and other things that shouldn’t have been shared between people who just worked together and were still married to other people,” Amy wrote. “I was devastated.”
Matt Roloff thinks Amy’s accusations were unjustified. “I think she overshadowed me,” Matt said of Amy’s book on the First Class podcast on fatherhood. “I don’t think that was really fair.” And it was painful. It was actually very painful. It took me a while to process it and absorb it.”
Amy Roloff has said several times in the past that she feels uncomfortable with Chandler. And they rarely see each other communicating on the show. Despite all the controversy, though, the family reunites when necessary. And when Tori was taken to the hospital to deliver Lilah, Amy, Matt and Chandler reunited.
“Tori went to the hospital a little bit out of the blue. Now we know it’s not a false alarm. That’s the real problem, the baby’s due tonight,” Matt Roloff told the cameras in episode 7. And that’s when the talk about what to do with Jackson came into play.
“While all this was going on, Jackson was asleep. So Amy Roloff got in the way. She went home to watch it until we got there,” Chandler added.
Matt and Chandler met Amy Roloff at Zach and Tori’s house to pick up Jackson. “I knew in advance that Jackson would stay with Matt and Caryn for at least a few days,” Amy said. “You know, I hope that no matter what’s going on, our family will still get together and be there for each other.”
