Welcome to Plathville star talks about criticism
On her Instagram Stories, Olivia sits in her car, chatting about what’s going on. She says, “And I realize, putting yourself out on a national television show is inviting people to talk about you. And I would be stupid if I thought that people were not going to criticize and talk about you from watching six hours of your life.”
Then, she adds, “Obviously it’s edited. Obviously it doesn’t show the full story.” She says that a lot of things go on behind the scenes.
The Welcome to Plathville star briefly mentions the Plath family drama, saying, “Unless you’ve been in a situation where you have been abused, manipulated, and blackmailed in the name of God and religion, you’ll never understand where I’m coming from, and you’ll never understand what I’ve been through.” She says that if people understand her situation, they can criticize her. But, she draws the line somewhere.
Olivia also talks about how people have been hateful toward her clients. She’s a wedding photographer and, according to her, people have been criticizing her photography clients. She says that people are sending her DMs and talking about her on forums.
In her stories, Olivia mentions that some people believe that TLC sets up her clients for her. She says that people don’t understand why a couple would fly a wedding photographer out to their destination. She says, “Here’s the thing, you don’t have to believe in me. I have plenty of clients who value my work and trust me enough to fly me across the country to shoot their weddings. And you haters don’t have to be one of them.”
In her videos, Olivia appears to be very passionate about the whole thing. You can watch Olivia’s full message here.

Fortunately, not all of the comments about Olivia are negative. Some of her new social media followers think that it’s great that she stood up to her mother-in-law. One follower writes, “Just finished binge watching the show! Obviously reality TV isn’t 100% reality but if the show is an accurate portrayal then you are truly the best thing to happen for Ethan and Moriah. And I love that you aren’t afraid to stand up for yourself and others.”
