Little People, Big World fans have been watching Matt and Amy Roloff navigate family life and Roloff Farms for nearly a decade and a half. And while many may remember when Matt and Amy were married, the two have since divorced and started dating new significant others of their own. Amy’s been dating her boyfriend, Chris Marek, for nearly three years, and Matt has been dating Caryn Chandler for about the same time. Unfortunately, Chandler’s legacy is shrouded in controversy.
Amy is not a fan of Chandler’s, but it seems Matt’s girlfriend is quite comfortable around the Roloff children. And her latest comment on Tori Roloff’s Instagram post has fans talking.
Caryn Chandler has been at odds with Amy Roloff for years
Amy’s stated before on LPBW that she feels uncomfortable around Chandler, as Chandler used to work on Roloff Farms before she was dating Matt. As Amy once said on the show, “When I’m in the same room as Caryn, I have a constant reminder of a marriage that didn’t work out, and a loss.” And more recently, in her memoir, A Little Me, Amy came out with even more scathing accusations.
Amy wrote about a farm employee that Matt was having an inappropriate relationship with during their marriage, and all signs point to the woman in question being Chandler. “I saw messages, pictures, and other things that should not have been shared between people who just worked together and were still married to other people. I was devastated,” Amy wrote. She also added that the alleged infidelity made her feel more “alone, hurt, and betrayed” than she ever has in her whole life.
Chandler seems to be on good terms with Zach and Tori Roloff
She may not get along with Amy, but it seems Amy’s son, Zach, and his wife, Tori, may be on good terms with Chandler when all is said and done. Recently, Tori added quite the candid post to Instagram about her body insecurities while she’s going through her current pregnancy — and Chandler left a kind note on the post. “Ugh….the body image insecurity train. I ride it often myself….Love U gurl-you glow inside, out and always [sic].”
It’s not just Tori’s Instagram that Chandler is commenting on, either. Chandler has also taken to the Instagram of Audrey Roloff, Jeremy Roloff’s wife, to comment on Audrey and Jeremy’s photo of their adorable toddler daughter, Ember. “Sooooo adorbs! Need to bbsit her ASAP [sic],” Chandler commented. This clearly shows, yet again, that there’s no bad blood between her and the Roloff kids.
It’s also interesting to note that none of Amy’s children promoted her new memoir. We’re not sure why, but it could have something to do with Amy’s claims that Matt was unfaithful.
She just commented on a photo of Tori’s son, Jackson
Tori just added another cute photo of her 2-year-old son, Jackson — and Chandler was back in the comments section. “He my favorite peach [sic],” Chandler commented on this photo — and fans certainly noticed, too, as the simple comment received 200 likes. Unfortunately, not everyone was happy with Chandler’s comment. As one added, “with grand babies there is no favorites” — though another of Tori’s followers said Chandler didn’t intend to mean that. Tori seemed to stay out of the debate, as she didn’t comment back to Chandler.
It seems like Chandler has been spending a lot of time with baby Jackson, too. She posted this photo to her Instagram of her, Matt, and Jackson that fans absolutely adored — and it might just prove that he is, indeed, her favorite step-grandchild. We’re sure Chandler will love all of the future grandbabies that are set to arrive in the next nine months as well, as both Tori and Audrey are pregnant with their second children. Cheers to more Roloff babies — and to more Instagram interactions with the controversial Caryn Chandler!
