Amy releases her memoir
This summer, Amy released her memoir. She talked about her relationship with Matt and his infidelity. She did not directly name his girlfriend Caryn Chandler but wrote about her. Amy states:
“That farm manager was around more and more often.”
“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,”
“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 gave an interview in late May and she repeated her allegations saying:
“I believe – this is all from my perspective – that there was more than just friends going on,”
“And I think that evolved to a point where that got in the way of our marriage as well.”
Matt Roloff and his response to Amy’s allegations
Matt initially decided to not respond to these accusations of his ex-wife. He merely put up a sweet picture on his Instagram and wrote:
“@carynchandler1 and [I] sitting here amazed at the simple beautiful moon lingering brightly over the farm as if to say ‘Keep taking the high road. It’s the only one that matters!’”
One social media user wrote:
“This lady was dating Matt when he was still married to Amy and she’s there for the money,”
“You couldn’t be further [from] the truth.”
But many fans supported Matt and one wrote:
“Matt I feel bad that the opinionated old harpies just don’t let up on you or Amy. Thank goodness they are less than 1 percent of those who post on your page. I admire your restraint in dealing with them,”
“Thank you — LOL. I actually call it ‘the 1 percent’ too. I use that to describe that sector of society that I really feel bad for.”
