Little People, Big World stars Amy Roloff and Matt Roloff were together for 27 years before they decided it would be best if they divorced in June 2015 — and their relationship is understandably pretty strained.
In a sneak peek of the latest episode of the hit TLC show, Matt really gets on Amy’s nerves and what follows makes their Thanksgiving meal uncomfortable for all those involved.
In the video, Amy can be seen preparing the holiday feast while Matt waits at the table — all alone while everyone else is socialising — for the food to be ready.
“OK, is he supposed to be sitting here waiting for everybody?” Amy asks. “Why is he just sitting here?”
Matt responds to her question with, “Yeah, I’m waiting here… because it’s like 6:30 p.m. I was told that it was dinner.”
And then all hell breaks loose, because Amy simply responds with: “You know what? Shove it up your ass.”
Everyone in the room looks super awkward after that comment, and the couple’s children then tell the camera how their parents’ bickering was not what they had in mind for the family dinner and they really don’t want to be a part of it.
What’s clear from the video is that Amy and Matt have very different expectations: Amy felt that there should be “no rules and no schedules” on Thanksgiving, because really, they were meant to be just enjoying their time together. Matt, on the other hand, felt that his ex-wife’s tardiness was an issue.
“Amy’s just notoriously late, and that’s one of the struggles with Amy and I through our entire marriage,” Matt told the camera, adding, “When it was time for dinner, I sat down to try to keep everybody on schedule. And I think she was kind of pissed.”
Do you think Amy was right in this situation and Matt was wrong to rush her? Or do you completely agree with his reasoning? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
