Welcome To Plathville Olivia Plath

Welcome To Plathville ran for just six episodes, but caused a lot of controversy and interest. Fans wonder if another season comes along. But it looks like Olivia Plath won’t be back for it, even if TLC does one. Olivia and Ethan were made out as the villains in the Plath Family, and she’s done with it. And, she felt she got manipulated into doing it in the first place.

Welcome To Plathville – Religious, conservative parents clash with Olivia

TV Shows Ace reported that Olivia struggled with her in-laws. She poured out her heart in an Instagram story about how she felt so unloved. On the show, we saw obvious hostility from Kim Plath, the matriarch of nine kids. Determined to keep the kids off the modern-day grid, all sorts of restrictions closed the door to excessive technology, soda, sugar and that sort of thing.

InTouchWeekly reported that Olivia slammed TLC for dramatic editing. Olivia got into trouble for encouraging her husband’s sister Moriah to explore her emancipation. Meanwhile, the end of the world came along when the kids ate icecream. In fact, Kim forbade her and Ethan from visiting his siblings without parental supervision. This all got filmed for Welcome To Plathville and for Olivia, the stress really got to her. She shared in an Instagram post on Thursday just how painful the whole thing became.

In her very lengthy post to friends and followers, Olivia explained that she plans to spend time with loved ones who matter. She’s also taking a break from Instagram, and it looks like she may not be back with TLC. In part, Olivia said haters featured in her decision. She wrote, “I’ve received so much hate on all of my platforms since our show aired, and while I know that is just part of being in this industry, I don’t need to be seeing that negativity and toxicity every day.”

The Welcome To Plathville star also regretted being “manipulated” to do the show. “I made many mistakes during the filming of the show (the first one being allowing myself to be manipulated into doing it),” she explained. And, she described the Plath parents as speaking “ill of [her] on national tv.” She said that she dealt with “narcissistic behavior, emotional, psychological and spiritual abuse every day.”


Stressful changes in Olivia’s life

On top of Kim Plath’s hostility, Olivia also dealt with “getting married and moving 800 miles away.” She left her “family behind, reprocessed her “childhood” and “rediscovered herself,” which was hard enough without all the spite from Kim. Olivia Plath noted that she’s “hurt and young.” So, perhaps she plans no more Welcome To Plathville seasons. What do you think about her being so “hurt and young?” Do you blame her for taking a step back? Sound off your thoughts below.
