Last night’s 2-hour premiere or Sister Wives gave viewers a raw and gritty insight to Kody and Meri’s fractured relationship and revealed a major bombshell between the couple.
In the last few moments of the show, Kody and Meri sit down to discuss the fallout from Meri’s catfish scandal. What began as an ordinary scene quickly morphed into a very real-life discussion.
Meri and Kody became vulnerable and divulged secrets within their marriage never before revealed including Meri asking Kody to move out of her home.
“You asked me to not be around you. You invited me away. You told me to go away,” Kody reminded Meri.
During an interview, Kody elaborated more.
Kody: Meri asked me to stop staying at the house.
Director: Her house?
Director: So, what’s going on here? I mean, I know you don’t want to talk about it, but is there anything you can talk about?
Director: Are you hopeful about being able to sort this out?
Kody: I’m working very hard not to be hopeless.
During their conversation, the pair went back and forth about what they hope to gain from their relationship.
Meri: What do you want?
Kody: I know what I want. I think we have to…
Meri: You know what you want?!
Kody: Well, I think I know what I want.
Kody: We will have to discuss that with Nancy.
Meri: You wont tell me right now what you want?!
Kody: Well Meri, there’s only one way to discuss this and that’s with Nancy because you’re already seeming antagonistic.
Meri: I’m not antagonistic. I just want to know. I’m tired of being in limbo.
Later, Kody revealed some more insights to their fractured dynamic.
“I’m not trying to be mean about this, but you said ‘Get out of my life.’ You said ‘Get out of my life’ to me,” Kody admitted.
Meri replied with her own hurt feelings when she reminded Kody, “You said ‘I’m not willing to cross a burning bridge for you anymore'”.
This conversation does not bode well for Meri and Kody’s future. It came across to viewers as though they had given up on their marriage but were afraid to pull the trigger on a divorce.
They ended the discussion by agreeing to visit their family counselor. Kody was adamant they needed the help of a third-party in order to work through these issues.
Meri took to Twitter to share her view of the heated conversation:
I actually think the convo was safe to begin with. We can only respond to things the other says in the best & most honest way. #SisterWives

Kody also echoed his previous sentiments that some things just shouldn’t be filmed:
We are public and choose to share our lives. However, some things should be kept private. Things saved for my mother or bff.#SisterWives

All in all, it’s too early to say for sure if the couple are planning to head their separate ways, but it’s not looking good.
According to Meri’s Instagram, she’s keeping very busy with her side gig and has begun to mend her relationship with Mariah.
Stay tuned to see how things shake out between Kody and Meri.
