On the personal front, everything is going very well for Amy Roloff and Matt Roloff.
How could it not be?
Both are involved in very serious romantic relationships… and they just discovered they are gonna be grandparents again!
Ineed, in case you haven’t heard, Tori Roloff is pregnant with her second child.
Therefore, it should be an exciting time for the parents of four — and yet Tuesday night’s episode of Little People, Big World once again depicted the former spouses coming to verbal blows with one another.
They remain as an impasse over the future of their business.
On the latest installment of this TLC realty show, Amy returned from her trip to Michigan, still quite unsure about what she wanted to do with Roloff Family Farm.
This has been the main topic of debate between her and Matt throughout this latest season of the series.
“I just want to make the best decision,” Amy told the camera of why she’s taken so long here to arrive at a conclusion, adding:
“Moving out of a house that I never really thought I’d move out of years ago. … to think about that now is a little daunting. It is a little scary, it’s a little intimidating because I’ve never really been on my own before.”
Totally understandable, right?
This makes it sound as if moving in with boyfriend Chris Marek isn’t on the table.
But that’s a question for another day.
The focus of this week’s episode was not on Amy’s relationship with Chris, but on the one with her ex-husband instead.
When Amy revealed her hesitation to Matt, he once again grew exasperated that there was no movement in her mind, telling her he would be happy with either the buyout or switching sides of the farm.
Unlike the mother of his kids, Matt knows he wants to move on from the current state of the farm and his ongoing role in its daily upkeep.
Amy, however, thought his flexibility was just another negotiation tactic.
“I don’t trust it,” she said in a confessional “This isn’t just a business decision, it’s a little personal for me.”
These exes have remained quite amicable since their divorce in 2016, but Matt has become very inpatient with Amy this season.
He even said she was holding him and his dreams hostage a few weeks ago.
“Matt has a strong personality, and one that I’ve adapted over the years we were together,” Amy continued last night, saying she had learned in the years since their divorce to take the following tact:
“Stand your ground and don’t let life push you around, including Matt.”
We don’t think Matt is trying to be a bully in any way here.
He recently slammed actual bullies who have been giving Amy a hard time on social media.
But he does want an answer and does want to know when Amy will give him one.
“She’s being a little bit, in my mind, selfish right now,” Matt said in the quote we reference above from an earlier episode of the TLC program last month.
“I just don’t want to be held hostage anymore to [her] indecisiveness.”
As always, it’s important to remember that what you see each week on Little People, Big World was filmed many months ago.
In far more recent interviews together, Matt and Amy have discussed the mutual respect that still exists between them, despite their break-up.
“We like to say: There’s no Team Matt and no Team Amy,” Matt told Us Weekly just two weeks ago. “It’s Team Roloff.”
“It’s about our family, it’s about our kids, it’s about our grandkids,” she said, while Matt concluded in this revealing chat:
“We still drive each other crazy. But then we respect each other as well.”
