'Sister Wives' Family Almost Evicted After Nasty Neighbors Complain: Plus Are They Broke?

Fri, June 10, 2011 10:44am EDT by 25 Comments

Kody Brown is struggling financially and fighting anti-polygamy neighbors in new hometown Las Vegas — Is the family’s move a disaster?

Kody and his four wives are in trouble! RadarOnline.com has a shocking new report that one of their Las Vegas neighbors tried to evict one of his wives. Not only is this incredibly sad, but imagine how much turmoil their children have already been put through!

“It was pure prejudice,” Kody said. “A neighbor tried to have one of my wives evicted.”

Kody wouldn’t reveal whether it was Meri, Janelle, Christine or Robyn — but he did go on to add that their hardships don’t stop there.

“We’ve had people that yell at us out of a window of a car while we’re walking on the street.”

This is just awful! Kody and his wives left Utah after they were being investigated for polygamy by the District Attorney. We watched some of their journey on season two of Sister Wives but after their potluck dinner with a few neighbors, we thought everything would be just fine.

It’s not just the blatant discrimination from some of their Las Vegas neighbors — they are struggling to make ends meat!

“We are working on a family business but right now we’re living off Kody’s retirement,” says Kody’s fourth and newly pregnant wife Robyn. “It’s a challenge to start over again.”

But despite all of their difficulties, a source close to the family tells HollywoodLife.com that things are working themselves out.

“They are adjusting beautifully. Just a bump in the road. And a minor one at that.”

Do you think moving to Las Vegas was the worst possible decision for the Brown’s and their 16 kids?

actually they are. I am all for people living the way they wish to live, but when they publicize  their personal buisness, it no longer becomes mind your own business. When they took on the reality show, they knew they would be subjecting their children to scrutiny. When they moved to all places las vegas, they were subjecting them to more. They knew they were publicizing something that is deemed illegal and still are astonished that Utah is Pursing a crime. Speaking of the crime, have people not acknowledged that polygamy has created problem, such as the raping, forced marriages and miseducation of young girls or leaders kicking young boys out into homelessness with no place to go. The Brown family has an agenda and they are challenging the ban on polygamy. How will that affect these girls and boys and their marriage  or an unsuspecting woman who do not know her husband is not married and is not okay with it. There are bad polygamists, just as there are good ones. How will this challenge affect the bad ones? Their challenge could open a pandora box and make crimes harder to prosecute and they dont care. Right now, I have no sympathy for the browns because they do not care. They care more about their crusade. They publicize their personal lives and then whine when people are not okay with their life. Well, in the first place, they should have kept what happens in their home to themselves because polygamy is a personal and controversial issue. People are going to be okay with it and others aren’t.

Since they’re all such a loving devoted family, why are they all renting separate homes? “family” should be living together and not in separate apartments.

It’s not like the women don’t know he’s bed bouncing. If they so truly believed what they’re trying to preach, they would have no problem all living together and watching the man rotate rooms nightly instead of houses.

If you watched the show, you would know that when they were planning the move to Las Vegas, the Browns attempted to find a home that would fit all of them, but were unable to find a rental that was large enough in the short amount of time they had. Their next option was to find homes on the same street and when that didn’t work out, they ended up in the situation they are in currently.

Prejudice doesn’t get you evicted. Being a loud neighbor bringing in tons of traffic and cameras does get you evicted from a quiet family neighborhood.

They have 5 able bodied adults who have the time and cash to go to a private trainer at a gym but can’t get off their rears to get jobs. I sure as heck wouldn’t want my kids growing up next to that kind of example of how to live. They have expensive cars and of course the man has the most expensive one.

maybe u should worry about ur own family and not what ur neighbor’s are doing and how they are living, if ur bringing ur kids up right and giving them moral’s and value’s it shouldnt matter what and how ur neighbor is living

If anything, they’re living off taxpayers. 3 or 4 of the wives file for public assistance, food stamps and free healthcare claiming they have no father in the home (permanently) so they can’t count his income in determining how poor they are.

Do you really think this family supports themselves and pays for health incsuracne for 20+ people?

I really don’t care how they delude themselves into thinking it’s “monogamous and faithful” for the man to be roundhouse screwing them on a rotating basis but if they’re willing to be so subservient, it’s their choice as long as they pay for their life choices themselves.

I have no sympathy for any of the wives and especially Kody. I feel the ones who are suffering the most are those poor children. I could care less where they moved to, as long as it’s not the state of NY. These women say they care about their children, but all the focus seems to be on Kody. If Kody was going to get arrested for Bigamy…so be it. Perhaps, then, and only then, that these women will realize that they are beautiful, kind enough, smart enough and worthy enough for one man and only one man to love them! I believe that Kody must have horse Maneure in his back pocket…because in order for all of these women to love him as much as they do, he must be shoving it into each of their mouths!! No one, and I mean no one, deserves to be treated this way in their marriage. No marriage is perfect, but at least it is between two people and not 5. What’s not to say in a few years he will be bored with Robyn and want a prettier and younger wife…..These women have given him so much and all he gives in return is jealousey, heartache and an unstable home life!

I meant to say that these women deserve one man for each of them! They are intelligent enough to know that they don’t need to share a man…….especially not this one! You can see that he is more attracted to Robyn than any of the others right now….she is the “flavor of the month”….and in a couple of years there will probably be a “new flavor”….

What has their weight have to do with the moralality of this life style. In the 5th grade kids that have nothing to use as ammo in a fight ,use personal attacks to hurt their oponents feelings rather than admit they are wrong….Are only thin people worthy of respect and a happy life?

Not having any experience w/ a polyamist mindset, this TLC program is interesting in that it shows just how selfish one man can be w/ numerous wives and the wives self esteem is so low, they buy into this lifestyle. This Cody fella, repeatedly speaks in terms of I and Me. Also, his white two seater Lexus, over $50,000.00 and the wives are hauling all 18 kids in beat up SUVs. How’s this guy supporting 4 wives and 18 children? What does he do for a living, Orthopedic Surgeon? MMM! I think he’s a selfish, self-centered jerk! Oh, and another baby is on the way. Geez!

He needs to be in jail! He is breaking the law! They should find a country that condones multiple wives and move there! Why hasn’t he been arrested, yet?

I don’t think any laws have been broken..or he would have been arrested by now. If you have watched the show, it plainly states that he is only “legally” married to Meri. He is not married to any of the other women.

struggling to make ends meat? seriously? why does everyone and their mother think they can write without knowing the basics of grammar and spelling? I don’t care about comments, but in the actual article itself, spelling and grammar should be checked.
