If you're looking for your feel-good fix for the day, this is not going to be it. Matt and Amy Roloff from TLC's hit show Little People, Big World have just announced that they're separating after 26 years of marriage, which probably doesn't come as a huge shock to fans of the family's reality show, but that doesn't make it any less of a bummer.
Matt and Amy have allowed cameras to document their ups and downs and before almost every commercial, we were teased with a "oh my gosh, are they finally splitting up?" kind of clip.
Well, now it's not a plot point anymore and we kind of feel horrible for being disappointed every time they came back from commercial and everything was fine. We don't like mind games, guys...not in our relationships, not in other people's, we just don't dig 'em.
Anyway, it sounds like things are as amicable as they could be and in a very Kris and Bruce Jenner-esque fashion, the reality stars issued a joint statement about their split, saying, "Though we have weathered many storms together, we recently made the tough decision to engage in a trial separation."
People magazine also has a statement that sounds like it's maybe more from Amy, but anyway, it continues, "Matt remains living on the farm in our guest house and we work together every day on the farm, on our business endeavors and most importantly, raising our amazing children."
The couple has four children together with their youngest, Jacob, being 17 years old and their oldest (the twins) being 23.
Matt and Amy are not the first reality show couple to call it quits and we're sure they won't be the last. Check out the gallery below to see some of their fellow fallen reality TV couples.
Oh, and in case you're wondering, their split will be documented on an upcoming special.
