Kim and Barry Plath have had their differences with Olivia Plath and this can be seen during the show. One of the reasons the couple usually had problems with Olivia was the way she chose to live her life. The Plath family and Olivia’s lifestyle are poles apart and it is an important bone of contention between them.
However, there is more going on than that. In conversation with YouTuber Katie Joy, Olivia Plath revealed the true story behind her relationship with Kim and Barry. Olivia Plath revealed that she first met Ethan when they attended a camp together in 2014. However, Olivia confessed that she wasn’t a fan of Ethan at first, because she thought he was “immature”.
She also revealed that although her parents didn’t like Kim and Barry, it was Kim who took the initiative to bring Ethan and her together. Olivia Plath added that her relationship with Kim was good at first and she was happy with the idea that Ethan would marry her.
The relationship worked perfectly with Olivia Plath who helped Kim set up their first website and helped her with social media platforms to advertise the brand The Plath Family. Olivia, however, felt that Kim was trying to make money from her family. But when it came to Ethan, Olivia revealed that the need to withdraw from a limited family had brought them together.
It was then that the relationship between Kim and Plath was on its way to trouble. Kim felt that Olivia Plath “poisoned” Ethan and stored bad thoughts in his head. She also revealed that the true divide between the family is not because of their differences in lifestyle, but because Kim and Barry believe that she is ‘possessed by evil spirits’.
They believe that Olivia has poisoned Ethan and his other brothers and sisters, Moriah and Micah. Olivia Plath also revealed that the only reason Kim and Barry gave Micah and Moriah permission to spend time with them was because they thought they were locked up for the evil spirits in Olivia.
Although the show sheds light on Olivia’s lifestyle and suggests that this is the main reason for the family breakdown, the story seems to contain more than that.
