Woman’s intuition? Amy Roloff got candid about her fizzled romance with ex-husband, Matt Roloff, in a resurfaced Facebook Live video recorded on March 31. In the clip, the LPBW star claimed that Matt got involved with his girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, while they were still married.
“I think when you start looking before you’re separated in marriage, that is hard,” Amy said, while next to her pal, Lisa Dixon. “When you become involved or much more than just a friend, but you become more in a relationship than just say ‘Hey, hi friend, lets go out for coffees’ type of thing, I think that can be hard on the other person as well,” Amy added, noting how she thinks that is what happened in her case. Matt, 57, and Amy, 54, were married for almost 30 years, from 1987 to 2016.
The TLC alum then addressed his relationship with Caryn. “We had someone that worked for us for a very long time, on our farm,” Amy continued. “And I believe — this is all from my perspective — that there was more than just friends going on. And I think that evolved to a point where that got in the way of our marriage as well.” Caryn reportedly stopped working at the farm last spring, and she even mentioned on the show, “If at any time, Amy asked me to leave, I would give her my blessing.”
Amy later mentioned how she’s been portrayed as the bitter ex on Little People, Big World, but said that’s not really accurate. The reality star said she was more upset with the way their relationship “evolved,” rather than the fact he was moving on from her. “I think that’s what hurt and unfortunately may have — through an edited show — caused me to be a little bitter, may have come across as me being a little more angry. I’ll be honest,” she said. “I’ll be frank, it was tough.”
Matt is still going strong with his girlfriend, Caryn, and his family has even given her the seal of approval. Amy has also found new love: she and Chris Marek have been together for over two years following her split from Matt. Luckily, it seems everyone is cordial! The LPBW exes said they hang out with their significant others together and it’s fine because they “respect each other!”
