So, is Oliva Plath leaving 'Welcome to Plathville'?

It's no secret that Olivia and her in-laws aren't exactly on the same page about, well, anything.

So, given that she and Ethan are starting divorce proceedings, per People, it seems pretty likely that Olivia is going to be done with the TLC show.

In the Season 5 finale of Welcome to Plathville, fans learn via a title card, "Olivia and Ethan have mutually decided to file for divorce." The paperwork was filed in court in late February 2024, according to reports.

But per ScreenRant, although Olivia is leaving her remaining ties to the Plath family behind, her single life may be documented on Season 6 of the show. And let's just say that someone in particular isn't very happy about that decision.

Kim Plath thought her former daughter-in-law's divorce would end her role on 'Welcome to Plathville.'

Olivia's choice to keep her ties to the show that made her famous has at least one person feeling a little bitter.

If you guessed that person is Kim Plath, Olivia's former mother-in-law, then you'd be right.

But as Olivia — who shared a cryptic quote to her Instagram Story about relationships being work amid news of her divorce — recently explained in a podcast interview, that is part of the reason she's doing it.

"I'm a petty b---h. I know that [Kim] thought that I wouldn't be a part of Plathville anymore when Ethan and I got divorced and I know that she's disappointed... I'm just reveling in that a tiny bit," she snarked.

It's worth noting two things. First, a sixth season of Welcome to Plathville hasn't been announced yet.

Second, Kim, who went so far as to accuse Olivia of having "evil spirits" inside of her, has also gone through a divorce since the show began its run.

Indeed, amid troubles between Ethan and Olivia, Kim and Barry, who, gasp, was previously married to someone else, were dealing with the dissolution of their multi-decade marriage. Kim and Barry's marriage ultimately crumbled in 2022.

So we're going on record saying that Olivia, who plans to keep her married name post-divorce, is having the last laugh here. Not only is she finally freeing herself from an unhealthy marriage, and unsupportive in-laws, but she is also making the choice to stay on their show just to spite them.

And that's funny, you have to admit, whether you're a fan of Olivia, Ethan, or Kim!
