Don’t you think Christine is selling herself short? Who wants to settle for third place?

The stars of TLC’s Sister Wives dropped by Anderson on Sept. 29 to give us all an even closer look at their controversial Polygamist lifestyle — and it was Christine that made our jaws drop when she told Anderson Cooper she’s totally fine with her position as “third wife.” In fact, she doesn’t want to be any more important to husband Kody Brown than she is now!

“I never wanted to be a first wife or a second wife,” Christine admitted, much to our surprise. “I, in fact, only wanted to be a third wife. I’m not even kidding.”

She continued:

“We all chose coming into this family, we all chose to be part of this,” she said. “We knew Kody, we fell in love with him, we fell in love with his family. So we all chose that and you talk about how many wives and the number of wives, we’re just working on our family, working on what we have. We just feel blessed to come together.”

To each her own, but we can’t imagine settling for — much less wanting – the “third wife” position. Doesn’t she want to feel just as important to Kody as Meri and Janelle? And what does Robyn think about her “fourth wife” slot?

So many wives, so many questions.
