Rough times for stars of reality shows. Matt and Amy Roloff have decided to make their trial separation a permanent one. The “Little People, Big World” stars and parents to four kids have officially filed for divorce, People magazine reported.
“After 27 years of marriage, it is with great sadness that we have come to the difficult decision to file for divorce,” the couple said in a statement.
Matt and Amy Roloff, both 4 feet tall, face a variety of challenges in raising their four children: twins Jeremy and Zach, who is 2-feet shorter than his brother, and younger siblings Molly and Jacob, who like Jeremy are average height. Together they live on a 34-acre Oregon farm that serves as part playground and part moneymaker.
“We are proud of what we have accomplished together, including raising four wonderful children who have grown to become remarkable adults and building our strong and ongoing successful businesses.”
Little People, Big World is an American reality television series that premiered on March 4, 2006, and airs on TLC. The series chronicles the lives of the six-member Roloff family farm near Portland, Oregon. Many of the episodes focus on the parents, Matt and Amy, and one of their sons, Zach, who are diagnosed with dwarfism.
“Last year, it was long and tough,” Matt said by way of explanation on the couple’s TLC show. “Amy and I had a lot of tensions, so right around Thanksgiving, I thought I would move over to the [guest] house for a little bit…Amy and I stuck it out for years when maybe we shouldn’t have. I never quite felt at home in my own home, so something needed to change.”
Amy added that they never really learned to live together. “It’s not my choice for him to leave,” she admitted. “I am saddened by it. It’s been 26 years. We don’t have a plan for how we’re going to work this out, so it’s not going to be easy.”
Little People, Big World first premiered back in March 2006 and has been on for 8 seasons.
