Kody Brown seems to no longer be actively participating in the polygamous lifestyle when it comes to love and romance. Though he still may consider himself to be spiritually married to three women at this point, he has expressed that he has no desire for romantic love or any sort of intimate bond with Meri. When he told Christine he no longer wanted intimacy from her, she ultimately decided to leave him. For a while, viewers didn’t know where Kody stood with his second wife Janelle, but he is now making it clear that he is not in love, or “in sync” with her. He has previously revealed that he took “romance” off the table for Janelle, and now she’s saying that they are “good friends” in a committed relationship.

Meri Brown revealed on Part 1 of the Sister Wives One-on-One special that airs tonight (Sunday, January 30, 2021) that she has not had a physical relationship with Kody in over 10 years, which is years before the Catfish scandal. Neither Kody nor Meri have gone into detail about why their relationship first broke apart, but they are both adamant that it was before the Catfish situation. In their 2015 book
A big question from Sister Wives fans since Christine Brown left her polygamist marriage with Kody Brown as if she would seek out another polygamist marriage. In a teaser for next week’s sit-down Tell All (part 2) Christine lets the viewers know whether or not polygamy is still an option for her going forward.
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.
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.
The nanny has been a central figure in the disintegration of the Brown family. Kody Brown settled down at Robyn’s house and stayed away from his other wives and kids for nine months after COVID-19 hit, and had poor communication about what needed to be done in order to see more of his large family. He even refused to quarantine for his daughter Ysabel’s spinal surgery because he didn’t want to be away from Robyn and her kids for more than a few days. Christine exposed to the cameras that Kody and Robyn had a nanny the entire time and asked what the nanny did so she could come into their home. Kody responded by handing out a strict list of COVID protocols that he said the nanny followed. A teaser for next week’s episode reveals that the nanny and her husband tested positive for COVID despite following these rules. We know Kody contracted COVID-19 at some point in 2021. Did he catch COVID from the nanny?
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.
On tonight’s episode of Sister Wives, Meri Brown was FINALLY able to visit Robyn Brown and her children. However, the emotional reunion was soon upstaged by an old video of Robyn “breakdancing” seductively when she was just 18!
Sister Wives will be back for at least one more season as Meri and Robyn Brown revealed on Instagram live that they had been filming yesterday for the show. Meri hopped on live to restart her “Fridays With Friends” live stream series with her friend Jen, who runs her B&B in Utah. At first, she didn’t reveal where she was, but her location was soon uncovered when Robyn joined her on camera.
One of the many controversies amongst the Sister Wives‘s Brown family playing out on television right now is the fact that in the fall of 2020 Kody Brown wanted to evict his sons Garrison and Gabe Brown from their mother Janelle’s home because he felt they weren’t following his COVID-19 protocols strictly enough. At the time, Kody was living at his other wife Robyn’s house for the past nine months. Garrison was 22 at the time and staying at his mom’s house while he saved money for a down payment on a house in the competitive Flagstaff market. He’s now realized that goal and closed on a $329k 4-bedroom home.
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.
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.
