The Roloffs are currently filming a new season of Little People, Big World, and after last season, we’re curious as to how Matt and Amy Roloff are doing. We know the couple has been divorced for years, and Amy’s even engaged to her partner of three years, Chris Marek. Despite Matt and Amy going their separate ways, the two are still living on the Roloff Farms property, which has also caused some major problems between the exes. And we can’t forget that Amy had unkind truths revealed about Matt in her memoir, A Little Me.
Despite their differences, Matt recently wrote a post on Instagram about Amy’s mother. And in the post, he mentioned the “wonderful” and “accomplished” Amy. Here’s what happened.
Amy Roloff wrote some scathing details about Matt in her memoir
Both Matt and Amy have moved on from the divorce with their significant others, but it seems there are certain aspects of the split that are difficult for Amy to cope with. During the last season of the show, we saw how uncomfortable she was around Matt’s girlfriend and ex-Roloff Farms manager, Caryn Chandler. But in Amy’s memoir, A Little Me, she went into further detail regarding why she’s still hurt by the divorce and deeply uncomfortable around Chandler.
“Then it dawned on me. Matt and our farm manager, who had been working for us a number of years by then, seemed to have more than just a working relationship or friendship,” Amy said in her book. Not only that, but she also talked about inappropriate photos and videos that were swapped between the two of them. And she also talked of Matt’s alleged controlling behavior on the set of the show.
Amy’s mother recently passed away
Still dealing with the aftermath of the divorce is far from the only thing on Amy’s mind, however. The past few months were a total whirlwind for her. While her engagement with Marek brought her good news, fans also knew that her mother was sick, as she was posting about visiting her mother in Michigan to Instagram. After a few bouts of sickness, Amy just told her Instagram followers that her mother passed away.
“Today I’m heading to Michigan for my Mom’s memorial on Thursday and to say goodbye to her And grateful to be with my Dad for a little bit afterwards,” she captioned this Instagram post of her and Marek on Roloff Farms. “I’m torn with my emotions. I miss her so much and at the same time happy she’s not in pain anymore and with the Lord.”
Amy recently posted a few more photos of her family during her most recent trip back home, too. “This weekend, my family came together to celebrate my Mom’s life. I say celebrate, because though I mourn and am sad she is not here anymore, my heart knows she is w/ the Lord,” Amy wrote.
Matt called Amy ‘wonderful’ and ‘accomplished’ in his tribute to Amy’s mom
Despite their differences, Matt and Amy are still doing their best to respect each other — and Matt even wrote a tribute to Amy’s mother on his own Instagram. “Today I reflect on an amazing woman, a wife, a mother, grandmother and great grandmother and my mother in law .. whom I always loved, appreciated and respected,” Matt captioned his post. He then went on to explain how Amy’s mom, Patricia Knight, was a woman of “deep committed faith” who will be remembered fondly by those who know her.
Not only that, but Matt mentioned Knight’s four children, too — and he gave Amy a great compliment. “Pat raised 4 wonderful accomplished adults one of which was my xwife Amy Roloff. Who went on raise my own 4 adoring children,” he continued.
Matt and Amy may not always get along, but it seems as if this Instagram post was something of an olive branch to Amy during this difficult time. We’re hoping to see the exes getting along better next season!
