Olivia took to her account a few days ago to announce she was taking a step back from social media. The decision came after TLC put a spotlight on the strained relationship she shared with her husband’s mother. According to her lengthy post, she believed she was a strong person. She, however, needed a break from the toxicity that came with the airing of her and her MIL’s dirty laundry.
One fan noted how much they adored the way Kim treated Olivia despite their fundamental differences.
“Your mother in law said aside from your differences you were an amazing person. That’s not slandering you. She was being very sweet in saying that take notice of the good things she says,” one follower penned in a comment two days ago.
The comment attracted a lot of attention in the form of a couple dozen likes and responses.
Olivia Plath quickly fired back with a response that received just shy of 300 likes. She hit her followers with a reminder. They only saw the TV version of her mother-in-law.
Olivia Plath suggests Kim says unkind things to her away from the camera.
“What is said off the screen and away from the cameras will always mean more to me then what is said for the cameras,” Olivia penned in response.
Fortunately for Olivia, many of her followers rushed to support her as they echoed her comment. Welcome to Plathville is a TV show with edited footage. This footage being what TLC believes will get views, one follower pointed out. They added while it was considered reality TV, it was far from being reality.
Another follower claimed they could tell Kim appeared to be “putting on a show.” They believed her eyes were not as sincere as the words coming out of her mouth.
Some of her followers suggested she should be the bigger person.
“We dont know what have been said away from cameras but you keep talking bad about your in law IN cameras and away from cameras. They need to change BUT you need to change too,” one follower fired back in response.

Just wanted to get on here real quick and let everyone know that I’m taking an Instagram break. I won’t be answering any DM’s, comments, or posting content until January. 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. I’m a strong person, not necessarily because I was born that way, but because life was hard and I learned to stand up for myself and others. Bullies and narcissists don’t phase me, and if I see someone I love being hurt or abused, it is not in my nature to stay silent. If this past year for you didn’t include getting married and moving 800 miles away, leaving your family behind, processing your childhood and re-discovering yourself, having your in-laws speak ill of you on national tv, and dealing with narcissistic behavior, emotional, psychological and spiritual abuse every day, then you can’t understand my story and don’t have a reason to tell me why I’m doing everything wrong. I’m hurt, and I’m young but I’m learning. Those three things are hard enough, and when displayed on TV they are even harder because you suddenly have a peanut gallery with you. I made many mistakes during the filming of the show (the first one being allowing myself to be manipulated into doing it by family) and I’m not afraid to own up to that. But until you’ve dealt with narcissist behavior, you have no idea how easy it is to freak out and react in an effort to protect yourself and those you love. To everyone who has been supportive, thank you. I know I will continue to grow and evolve as a person with your encouragement 🖤 I want to use my break from social media to love well on the people in my corner, and listen to their stories. I want to use the time I would’ve spent scrolling to diving deeper into and praying over who I am meant to be as a person. Cheers to the next month being full of growing, processing emotions, and embracing my story, however hard and imperfect and messy it is. Merriest Christmas to you all. 🎄
The individual above noted that regardless of what fans do or don’t know and what Kim does or doesn’t say, Olivia needed to find a way to not trash talk her mother-in-law.
The unfortunate truth is fans may never get the full story on the relationship between Olivia and Kim. Furthermore, there are always two sides to a story. For now, fans will have to wait till 2020 for Olivia Plath to return from her Instagram hiatus.
