Katie Joy from Without a Crystal Ball blames Kim and Barry Plath, Welcome to Plathville
If you watched Welcome to Plathville, you know about all of the drama on the show. Kim and Barry Plath, Ethan’s parents, simply don’t like Olivia. Now that the show’s over (and likely not coming back for a second season), the family probably hasn’t reconciled their differences. Fans of the show think that the relationship Olivia has with her in-laws is beyond fixing.
Katie Joy from Without a Crystal Ball on YouTube talked about the potential cause of Olivia’s heartbreaking Instagram post. She decided that it likely has something to do with Kim and Barry. There’s obviously a lot of drama in that relationship. It has to be stressful on her. In her post, Olivia mentions boundaries, saying, “the hell I walked through this past year taught me I have to stand by my boundaries.” Those boundaries might have been set up to protect her from Kim and Barry.
As viewers saw on the show, Kim and Olivia often disagreed with each other. They often ran into conflict. And, Olivia didn’t necessarily seem happy to be around her mother-in-law, who seemed to disprove of her lifestyle. So, this would make a lot of sense.
So far, Olivia has yet to reveal what’s going on behind the scenes. It’s unclear whether she will share all the details. For now, fans are just happy that she and Ethan are stable.
