Amy Roloff Feels Like Matt's Relationship With Caryn Chandler Is a 'Blow to the Chest'

Amy Roloff

It’s been a year since Little People, Big World's Amy and Matt Roloff finalized their divorce. Both reality stars have seemingly moved on in respective relationships. Amy Roloff is dating Chris Marek, an Oregon-based photographer turned real-estate agent, and Matt Roloff is with Caryn Chandler, his longtime assistant. But according to a Radar Online insider, Amy is still hurting in the wake of the split from Matt.


The source says, "Of course Amy feels betrayed." The main reason? Apparently, she's upset by Matt and Caryn's dynamic. "The way he's treating Caryn is nothing like how he treated her during their marriage," the insider notes. "It was like a blow to the chest."

Furthermore, the source asserts, "It really made Amy feel insecure about who she was and the type of wife she was."

If that's true, it's seriously disheartening. Judging from the fact that these two were together for so long -- 27 years of marriage! -- it seems safe to say that Amy, 53, gave her all to her marriage to Matt, 57, and was a wonderful wife. But sometimes, "I do" simply doesn’t translate to "till death do us part." 

This isn't the first time LPBW fans have heard about tensions between Amy and Caryn, 49. On last week’s episode, the mom of four said that it's tough to invite her ex's new GF to family events, like daughter-in-law Audrey Roloff's baby gender reveal party. 

"It is hard for me to say 'go ahead and invite Caryn' because it is someone that I've known for a long time," Amy shared. "Matt's worked with her for many many years. So that will always hurt to some degree. But it is something that I will have to be an adult about -- doesn't mean I have to accept it."

Thankfully, Amy is enjoying her time with her new boyfriend, according to the Radar insider who noted, "The good thing to come out this though is Chris. She met Chris, and he is so good to her and they are happy. He doesn't take her for granted."

Fingers crossed that happiness ultimately overshadows any sadness that may be lingering as the result of her divorce.
