She's Not Welcome Here! Matt Roloff's Girlfriend Caryn Says She Wants New 'Traditions' Away From His Ex Amy

On the season finale of Little People, Big World, the Roloff family members had to deal with an awkward crisis when they were forced to separate for the holidays!

Matt Roloff's girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, threw a pre-Christmas party for the entire family, but was hesitant to invite Amy Roloff.

"I know the kids and they know me. But blending families is always interesting. So I'm a little nervous about the party, I'm not going to lie," Caryn told the cameras.

"So what do you think, as a courtesy invite Amy to drop in?" Matt, 56, asked Caryn.

"I mean you can," a reluctant Caryn replied. "But it might be nice to start our own traditions."

Caryn's reservations on inviting Amy and boyfriend, Chris Marek, made Matt reconsider, and he ultimately decided against it.

"I didn't invite Amy and Chris tonight," Matt told Caryn. "I thought I could've. It would've been nice. I thought Amy could drop by and be cool and chill but there's still something there that just brings tension or something to the room."

Matt even claimed that if ex-wife Amy, 53, continued to feel resentment towards his girlfriend, he would have no choice but to sell the farm.

"We had this family meeting the other day and we were talking about if Amy would sell out the farm, or should I build on the farm," Matt told Caryn. "But the biggest thing is if I can build here and know that one day maybe I can convince you to move in with me and live on the farm. But if she's never going to accept, or that's never a possibility then we have to start getting rid of this farm."

"I think Amy is still adjusting to the idea that I'm dating Caryn. I mean I think she puts on a good, brave face. But I still think she carries some insecurities," Matt told the cameras.

But while Matt and Caryn threw their exclusive holiday party, Amy revealed she had no plans of showing up to their home anyway.

"I don't really desire to be there," Amy admitted. "We are divorced. I don't have to be best friends with Matt and Caryn. In fact, we don't have to friends at all."

"I've been through a lot. And I don't think I'll ever get through the feeling of being rejected," Amy explained. "But you got to get over it and not in order to make a relationship work. Chris has made me feel that I am still a wonderful person to love to get to know and be with. So it means a lot to me."

"For me dealing with what the future of the farm really holds, I think I would be a fool not to think about the possibility of Christmases off the farm. Whether it would be here off the farm or elsewhere, I'd do my best to be there and celebrate those milestones with my kids and my grandchildren."

On actual Christmas Day however, Amy and Chris celebrated by themselves, Matt and Caryn went off to Arizona after they closed on a home there, and the rest of the Roloff children spent the holidays with their significant others.

"Obviously there are a lot of divorce issues, there's all this tension and stuff. And then overtime, things get easier and sometimes exes become friends," a hopeful Matt said. "But if Amy says 'Hey, I don't want you and your girlfriend here at the farm,' we would have to change things."
