Now that the new season of Little people, big world is running even plus eyes are fixed on the Roloff family.
Recently, Matt’s (plural) decisions have been tearing the family apart at the seams.
Amy can’t control what her ex-husband does. She no longer has a say in the farm itself, for that matter.
But she can express her wishes about how the family moves forward. And she would like to put this ugly business behind her.
In the build-up to the premiere of the 24th season of Little people, big worldAmy Roloff answered questions from fans.
On Friday, he took to Instagram Live to speak directly to his followers.
Obviously, the dispute over the sale of Matt’s farm alienated both Zach and Jeremy. And it has impacted others, like Jacob and Molly.
“Even the kids you don’t see on the show,” Amy admitted.
He then noted that “they’ve had to embrace and figure out how they’re going to handle it.”
“And,” continued Amy, “what do you think of all this?”
The farm is not an obscure investment property. It is where the family grew up.
“This farm was like the seventh child,” Amy characterized then.
He commented that it was like being the “seventh individual in our family”.
As we know, Matt made a partial U-turn to his controversial family plans.
He opted to convert that portion of the farm into a short-term rental property rather than sell it outright.
Maybe he smelled more money on it. Or maybe he just realized that selling the farm was destroying his brand and his family.
Admittedly, Amy is less than thrilled at the idea of the old family home becoming an AirBnB, and not just because short-term rental homes are a huge contributor to the housing crisis.
But Amy wants the family to process their feelings and then put these disagreements aside.
Simply put, she wants everyone to be nice.
“Matt owns the entire property,” Amy pointed out.
Addressing his fans and followers, he commented that “you have seen what he is doing with him now. …”
Amy then announced that “it’s time for us to get on with our own lives.”
“My hope and goal is always, eventually maybe we can get together,” Amy wrote optimistically.
She wants to have family gatherings that are “more than just birthdays, maybe a holiday.”
Amy acknowledged that “it takes time for that to happen.”
“It’s easier for some,” Amy noted.
“And,” he continued, “it takes a little longer for others.”
That is natural. Everyone is different. And we all understand that there is more than just the farm, and Matt’s willingness to cheat on his children, at stake here.
But ultimately, Amy reminded people that they are a true family. Sometimes a fight over the sale of family land is normal.
“Our thing is real life, we’re not like some of the other reality shows…” he wrote grimly.
“This is a real family,” Amy reminded her followers. “You only have a fragment of that.”
Amy offered other news, including no news about season 25.
“I can’t confirm that this is the final season,” Amy told her followers. She continued: “I don’t know. I have no idea.”
He then expressed, “I hope you keep looking, I think you will still find some interesting things.”
“If there’s another season after that,” Amy suggested, “I’m going to try to make it a season where you can actually see us a little bit more.”
“And,” he continued, “what we’re doing in our lives… maybe meeting up with everyone.”
Amy then concluded by stating that “we are moving forward from this [farm sale stuff].”
