Since Welcome to Plathville premiered, the Plath family has dealt with their fair share of ups and downs.
Kim Plath and ex-husband Barry Plath — who announced their separation in June 2022 — rose to fame after the series debuted on TLC in 2019. The docuseries chronicles Kim and Barry’s life in rural Georgia with children Ethan, Hosanna, Micah, Moriah, Lydia, Isaac, Amber, Cassia and Mercy. (Hosanna and her husband, Timothy Noble, have not appeared on the reality TV show.)
“When we were dating, I knew that I was being controlled in what we were allowed to do, what we’re allowed to say,” Olivia recalled to Us Weekly in August 2021. “I remember the night that it clicked for me was the night we got engaged. We come in the door, [Kim] waited up for us and she, like, grabbed my hand and looked at the ring. And the first thing she said was, ‘Oh, I want to trade rings with you.’ And I was like, ‘OK, that’s really weird.’”
Olivia has remained at odds with Kim and Barry, but she and Ethan — who split in October 2023 — were on good terms with his siblings.
