Reality TV's not always pretty. When Little People, Big World stars Matt and Amy Roloff announced their separation earlier this month, fans of the TLC show braced themselves for an emotional season premiere.
In Us Weekly's exclusive sneak peek from the Tuesday, March 25 premiere, Matt and Amy attempt living separately. And their trial separation comes with its share of insecurities.
"My biggest fear is what if I change my mind, and she says 'Listen mister, you just stay over in your dog house because I'm kind of liking my own space,'" Matt said in the clip. "There's a huge risk to what we're doing."
He is still living on the farm, but has moved out to the guest house. Though he's concerned about the potential ramifications of his choice, Matt does enjoy the perks of living apart from his family.
"It's comfortable over here," he says of his second home. "The kids aren't dropping by; it's quiet. It gives Amy and I space away from each other and that's ok. She's my wife, and I love her, but that's where we're at right now."
Amy, however, doesn't seem to be on the same page. She's not too pleased with Matt's decision to move out.
"It's just sad to me that for some reason we're, at the moment, just definitely not compatible," she says in the clip. "I don't know if we ever were. Those will be the unknowns for the coming year."
Little People, Big World premieres on Tuesday, March 25 at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
