Tori and Audrey Roloff would very much like for you to stop talking about them.
At least in a negative sense.
Clearly aware of the narrative around their relationship, the relatives tried to user their social media platforms over the weekend to put an end to the rumors and the speculation.
They don’t totally despise each other, okay?!?
Both parents re-posted a throwback photo from a friend (below) that depicted Tori’s son, Jackson, and Audrey’s daughter, Ember.
One of the criticisms of Audrey and Tori… one of the reasons why many observers believe these two don’t get along… is because we so rarely see their kids playing together.
Tori and her husband, Zach, don’t leave all that far from Audrey and her husband, Jeremy.
And yet: Good luck trying to find any recent Instagram photos of these couples and/or their children hanging out.
Is there truly bad blood between Tori and Audrey? Or might they just not be especially close, which wouldn’t be all that unusual for a pair of sisters-in-law?
Many observers noticed last month that Tori didn’t congratulate Audrey on her third pregnancy, but there may be a very good reason behind this so-called snub.
A short time later, Tori shared an emotional message on Instagram that detailed how she and Zach have been trying to conceive for awhile now.
Trying and, sadly, failing.
"I really thought I would pregnant again by now. So many people told me after a loss it usually happens so fast. That’s not our reality," Tori confessed in miid-July, prior to referencing her late daughter and the miscarriage she suffered in March:
"Our pastor reminded me this Sunday that God leads us in a way that makes us dependent on Him.
"Following Jesus doesn’t mean there will be no pain- it means that his powers are bigger than our pain.
"I am a faithful servant and I pray that I’m not forgotten. Just like Hannah."
Concluded Tori back then:
"So that’s where I’m at. Fully dependent on God. Praying that one day we will be able to add to our family. But also giving thanks for the small things.
"I wanted to also say thank you to every single one of you who have shared your stories with me. It in a way makes things easier and harder all at the same time.
"To all those mamas past present and future- love you."
In related news, a source recently told The Sun that Tori and Audrey have never really been at odds.
But their husbands?!?
That’s a different and surprising story.
"Tori and Audrey always got along with each other, but Zach and Jeremy got into a huge argument one day and everything changed," according to this anonymous insider.
"It went on for weeks and the girls obviously took sides, they all stopped speaking to each other.
"The argument was about lack of respect. Zach felt he didn’t get enough support from Jeremy, but he didn’t agree.
"It exploded and there was a lot of mud-slinging, resulting in the two couples keeping their distance."
