Pop Culture: Matthew Roloff said Amy Roloff creates 'tension' in the family
In the last episode of Little People, Big World the Roloff family expended Christmas time divided between Amy’s home and Matt’s new home.
Caryn Chandler, Matt’s girlfriend, decided to throw a family Christmas party with Matt’s children and grandchildren to celebrate the holiday. But she didn’t want Amy included on the plan and Matt supported her reasons.
