In the wake of the release of Amazon’s highly critical LuLaRich docuseries, MLM fashion brand LuLaRoe has once again been thrust into the spotlight — and not in a good way. Despite the renewed backlash against LuLaRoe’s business model and alleged manipulative practices, Sister Wives star Meri Brown is doubling down in defense of the company and her decision to be a LuLaRoe retailer.
The highly controversial LuLaRoe multi-level marketing company clothing company started in 2012, but the roots of the company date back to 1988 when DeAnne Stidham was a mom on a budget looking for fashionable clothes for her little girls.
DeAnne is now the president of LuLaRoe and her husband Mark Stidham is the CEO of the large company that has been sued dozens of times over potentially predatory practices. The couple sat down for an interview for what became the documentary LuLaRich, which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime. During the interview, they told the story about how LuLaRoe came to be what it is today.
