Matt finally responded to all the rumors on his Facebook page:
Wow!! I am humbled, by the responses to our last episode. For those wondering..the reality of my collapsing was REAL.
I continue to fight Vertigo dizzy spells. I'm now on the right meds. Happy to say I'm doing much better...haven't hit the floor in months.
For those wondering why the deleted posts? Had a security issue in NY so my staff deleted them. Bad timing! Thank you for your well wishes. I'm glad to be home!"
If you're wondering about Matt's last statement -- throughout the day on Monday, Matt was using his Facebook page as usual, posting about the fundraiser on the Farm for political candidates, his trip to New York, arriving in New York. He even posted as LPBW was airing (depending on where you live) of him out and about in New York.
Yet in the aftermath of the show and the frenzy of worried people who thought it was another situation like Mike Detjen, where the episode aired and then they came to the internet to find out that Mike had died months ago - people began asking if Matt was ok (in actuality - Matt's dizzy spell was filmed almost exactly one year ago - in late June/early July 2009 - before the Europe vacation, before pumpkin season, etc).
Sites like ours pointed to Matt's Facebook posts as a quick and easy to calm the fears of worried of viewers.
Then, suddenly as rumors of Matt's health and death and that he had heart attack were becoming one of the popular searches on the internet -- Matt's Facebook entries from Monday - suddenly disappeared and the stories continued to spread...
Those who are skeptical felt it was Matt and TLC trying to ride the wave of attention by letting these rumor stories build. Now Matt explains that it was a "security issue" so his staff deleted them. Hmm.
Matt also made it to TMZ

Millions of reality fans were left wondering about the fate of "Little People, Big World" star Matt Roloff after Monday's season finale appeared to show him suffering a heart attack -- but TMZ has learned, his ticker is tip top.
In fact, Matt didn't even suffer a heart attack at all -- it was vertigo. Still, the Internet was burning with rumors that he was in bad shape ... or even dead.
But Roloff tells us, "Although having a dizzy case of vertigo ... I am very much alive and healthy and would like to thank all my friends and fans for their concern."
We're told Matt didn't even need to go to the hospital for the incident on the show -- and has since been treating his Vertigo with medication.
