SISTER WIVES Cliffhanger: Did Janelle and Savannah get COVID?

Season 16 of Sister Wives ended with the muddled dissolution of Kody and Christine’s 25-year marriage. We were left with Christine declaring that the end of their spiritual marriage was between “her and God,” while Kody is grappling with feelings of relief after finding all of his things packed up in the garage. Something else, however, was left hanging for the viewers. Janelle revealed that her sons Garrison and Gabriel had tested positive for COVID after not feeling well. She and her daughter Savannah were waiting on test results, but the audience got no more updates from Janelle.

SISTER WIVES Are Kody and Christine officially spiritually divorced?

The divorce between Kody Brown and his third wife Christine Brown seems to have been going on for a long time before it was officially announced. Because they were never married legally, the idea of divorce is really up to how they define it spiritually for them. What does this mean for their religious beliefs? Where they formally divorced in a religious ceremony? Christine has revealed what divorce means to her.

   

SISTER WIVES The time Kody shamed Christine over her period

During Season 8 of Sister Wives, the Brown family took a multi-stop road trip where Kody was invited to go fishing with his friend Ken. Christine was upset with this friend because he told Kody to divorce three of his wives, and she demanded that Kody ask for an apology from him. This angers Kody, and bad feelings ripple through the whole family. Eventually, Kody shifts the blame to Christine’s PMS so they can continue on with their trip.

SISTER WIVES Who is Christine’s employee?

On tonight’s episode of Sister Wives Kody reveals that Christine has an “employee.” He drops this in while talking about how their COVID precautions have an “economic” angle in that some of them have people they work with that could be exposed. This seems to be some sort of retaliation for the fact that Christine outed that he and Robyn had a nanny coming in and out of the home, who Kody called an “employee.” Linking the word “employee” to both situations, especially surrounding COVID protocols, implies that Christine also had someone coming in and out of her home too. It turns out that Christine’s employee does remote work for her MLM businesses and is not a nanny or housekeeper that comes into her home, so it isn’t comparable to Robyn’s employee.

   

SISTER WIVES Why Kody Brown wanted to evict his sons Garrison and Gabe from Janelle’s house

On Sister Wives Kody Brown has made it clear that he expects his four wives to choose their relationship with him over their children. He went so far as to say he wanted to evict two of his children, Garrison and Gabriel, from their mother’s home without her consent. Kody is not on the lease, so has no grounds to do so, but is callously adamant about the wish for them to leave. The motivation for this is cloaked in strict COVID-19 rules that are meant to protect the family, but the issue seems to be about something else entirely.

SISTER WIVES Kody says Christine blames him for Truely’s kidney failure

Kody Brown’s slide into utter disharmony with his family continues with Sunday night’s episode of Sister Wives. In the episode, Kody says he wants to evict his sons Garrison and Gabe from Janelle’s house and tries to explain why he’s being so Draconian with his rules: he says he’s going to hate “a bunch of” people in his family if one of them dies from COVID. He then brings up that he thinks one of the reasons Christine hates him is because she thinks he was negligent with Truely when she developed life-threatening kidney failure in 2014.

SISTER WIVES Kody broke up with Meri, but she refuses to leave the spiritual marriage

In the past two seasons of Sister Wives Kody Brown has been very open about his lack of affection, or even friendship, with his first wife Meri Brown. He was pretty direct with her on their 30th wedding anniversar. In the latest episode, Meri revealed that Kody had finally told her that they are “just friends” and let her know that there was no hope to repair their broken relationship.

SISTER WIVES Is Ysabel pain-free now after spine surgery last year?

Tonight’s episode of Sister Wives documents Ysabel’s spine surgery to correct the 55-degree curve the then 17-year-old’s spine had developed because of scoliosis. At the point where she had the surgery, Ysabel was in constant pain every single day, and all she wanted to do was live pain-free. Did the surgery achieve a life with less pain for Ysabel?

SISTER WIVES Kody tells Ysabel to not become a “bitter old housewife” because he won’t be with her for her surgery

Scoliosis, which is a curve in the spine, has caused Ysabel Brown to live in constant pain for years. In the past, she tried alternative treatments, but in 2020 the pain got so bad that she wanted to undergo spinal surgery so she could live a pain-free life.

In Season 15, her dad Kody Brown at first pushed back about the surgery because of his COVID-19 concerns and then told her to go have surgery alone. He later revealed that he didn’t take Ysabel’s surgery seriously because he thought her mom Christine was using it to manipulate him.
