'Sister Wives' Finale Recap: Christine Admits She's Been A B*tch To Robyn

Mon, November 28, 2011 10:17am EST by 91 Comments
Sister Wives

But can you blame her? In this finale, perfect wife Robyn gives birth on air, Kody’s teens freak out over ANOTHER baby and Janelle tries to hide that she’s wildly jealous too!

Well, I had to hand it to sister wife #3 Christine. After a season of backstabbing Robyn — saying she wouldn’t want to be as skinny as her, complaining that Kody only cared about Robyn’s needs — she’s finally admitted she’s been a “sister wife” mean girl.

“My treatment of (Robyn) hasn’t been accepting and welcoming to say the least. I made her feel like she wasn’t welcome, that I didn’t want her as a sister wife, like she wasn’t a wife of Kody,” confesses Christine as she prepares a “peace offering” for Robyn.

Her gift is a stitched wall hanging saying “our family has grown by two feet,” which she is framing for Robyn’s baby Solomon’s room.

I admire the formerly youngest and newest wife Christine for so honestly admitting to her feelings now after passively aggressively denying them for months and then griping behind Robyn’s back and being miserable to  husband Kody.

Of course, us non-sister wives can actually completely identify with Christine who has six children with Kody. Why would she have wanted to have even less time with the husband she was already sharing with two other women? Why would she want her children to see even less of their father, who now has 17 kids?

Why would she have supported Kody falling in love with a younger, prettier and slimmer new wife, who got pregnant right away?

Well in the world of sister wives, jealousy ISN’T supposed to be normal. So Christine, clearly feels good about getting over the green-eyed monster.

“I feel bad for blaming her for taking Kody away and for being Kody’s favorite … it’s not OK to treat people mean,” says contrite Christine. “I dread that my children won’t think of her as a mom because of how unfair I’ve been and that’s not OK.”

Christine even admits that she could have potentially caused “this family a lot of harm.” But now she’s claiming Robyn’s baby “is so special to me. I love him. I welcome Solomon (the new baby) as my son.”

Yah right. That I’m not buying.

Janelle, wife #2, at least is honest about how SHE feels about Robyn’s now baby. “I probably won’t get up in the middle of the night to see the baby,” she predicts. “I am excited,” nevertheless she says, sounding completely and utterly NOT excited.

Robyn of course, is oblivious to everything, but the fact that she’s about to give birth at home “naturally,” like she did with her other three kids.

Is it a sister wife thing to give birth “naturally?”

Who knows? But Robyn’s mother gave birth to ALL seven of her kids at home and Robyn says that hospitals scare her. Lucky for her and her mom that she’s never had any complications.

In hospitals Robyn contends “you’ll miss the magic of the actual regular birth that God designed,” she intones. In the hospital, “they’ll throw in a pitocin (a drug to speed up delivery) or an epidural ( yea, right, like they just throw those in without telling you) . My body is designed to carry and deliver the baby — God designed a woman’s body to do that,” recites Robyn.

Like I said — Robyn is so annoying because of course HER body functions perfectly during delivery unlike many woman who have trouble delivering safely and without horrendous pain. And she does sound superior, spouting off as if the maternal and baby childbirth death rates haven’t plunged since the modern era when doctors helped God’s “design” along.

Kody’s teens have majorly mixed feelings about Robyn’s baby as well as their mothers.

“I honestly think we have more kids than we can handle,” says Hunter, who has had a really tough time with the move from Utah to Las Vegas.

“I don’t know if I’m excited, we have so many kids right now,” admits Madison. And again who can blame her, Hunter or any of the other teens. Their dad only spends one in four nights with each of their moms — and that means with them. How can he possibly give them each any attention at all. Meanwhile, Kody is deeply obsessed with his new baby and cries when Solomon arrives. That’s nice, but Kody being a dad isn’t just about sperminating!

When Kody isn’t busy reproducing, he finds time to look for property where the family can one day build four homes — one for each wife — right next to each other. At least, he doesn’t talk about making sure there’s room for a fifth house… and fifth wife.

The family also scouts locations for their unlikely new business – a fitness studio. “It’s humbling that we’re looking at a fitness center because we’re not in the best of shape,” points out Christine, in the understatement of the year. But good for the sister wives to at least be trying to get in shape.

And this family of 21, BETTER find a new source of income besides TV soon because it sure has a lot of mouths to feed and college tuitions to pay.

Plus there will be new fertility treatments coming up.

Robyn and Meri have actually as it turns out bonded the way sister wives are supposed to and have become very close. Meri, wife #1, makes the astounding statement that she’s never had a deep personal relationship with her other sister wives. This is shocking considering that she shared the same house as Janelle and Christine for years! How sad!

But the season finale closes with a heartrending moment as now SUPER perfect Robyn makes the loving and gracious offer to become infertile Meri’s surrogate. “I’ve been praying about it ever since we met — I mean it,” she offers stunned Meri.

Meri, who has previously decided against in vitro, cries and hugs Robyn.

For her sake — I hope she takes up Robyn’s offer and that it works.

For our sake — we’re guaranteed at least one more drama-filled season of Sister Wives!

I think that they have changed my view of polygamy. Whenever I thought about it, I immediately thought of warren Jeff’s and that all polygamists marry younger girls from their own families. These are hard working religious people, they support their own family and focus of family. There are so many people out there with only one child who lives off the state or government and pays no or little attention to their child, or abuses them. Everyone has a different view of spirituality and religion, the great thing is if you don’t agree with someone else’s religion- you don’t have to be a part of it, nor do you have to watch the show. What you perceive as “normal” or “wrong” is your own view, possibly shared by others. They are not hurting anyone, and they are all consenting adults, they do not even force their children to be polygamists when they are adults. Everyone has skeletons in their closet and I’m sure so do these people. I think that they are wonderful HUMAN BEINGS who still feel feelings like any other human. They are productive members of society who work and pay taxes and love their children, they have a right to live the way they see as correct. They are better citizens and parents than I would say probably a very large chunk of other people in this country.

Bunch of clowns to me, laughing on the outside and crying on the inside. Truly, the one he really cares for is Robyn. Nice little ‘Get Rich’ scheme. What does he do when more than one wife wants him to spend the night? Oh, what a question, I forgot there’s Viagra, Cialis, etc. etc etc.

The death rate from child birth plunged after doctors and midwives started washing their hands before touching the mother’s private parts. Ever heard of child-bed fever? It was caused by unclean hands and killed a lot of new mothers. Having a doctor in attendance used to be more dangerous to the mother than not having one.

How many men have several children with several different women? How many actually help take care of these children?
I don’t see anything wrong with polygamy as long as all of the adults are consenting. It might not be the choice I would make for my life, but its their choice to make.
Kody is taking care of his children and his wives and that’s all that matters. They all seem happy, except for the teenagers.
I know several teenagers that have gotten mad over a move. That’s normal teenage behavior regardless of the marital status of the parents.
I love this show and I’ll keep watching as long as they are on the air! They have definitely helped me open my mind about polygamy.

I want to know where she bought the pattern for that beautiful wall hanging. I’ve been looking all over the Internet & haven’t had any luck! My cousin is due in Feb. & I really want to make this for her. Does anybody know where to find this pattern?
Oh, and I don’t think what there doing is really all that abnormal. What’s more messed up is husbands & wives cheating on one another behind their backs! He supports all of his kids & that’s more then I can say for most men who are suppose to pay child support! The only reason people think it’s a horrible thing is bc they can’t bring themselves to the thought of knowingly sharing their
spouse ( I myself couldn’t over come jealous to live like this) The people who are the most closed minded might want to check on where their husband is right now.. If it makes these people happy then just let them live! It’s not our life to control nor judge. We all have skeletons in our closets so I wouldn’t be throwing stones!
Peace & love to you guys!

These ppl have not overcome jealousy either, just because they act in front of the camera like it is okay, they are misserable inside and you can see it in their faces. The kids hate it and I don’t give a crap what anyone says, a person that are true christians can not live a happy and fullfilled life living in sin every waking day.

I personally love these people! And all of you that are hating because this isn’t the norm of how you were brought up, get over yourself. I am 23 years old and started watching this show out of curiosity. And have fallen in love with these people. They are good people!! Sweep under your own doormat before sweeping under theirs. Who are we to judge. That’s what’s scary. People are so eager to judge. Gees **I love you Browns family**

Well I certainly have read it. I do recall large segments of polygamy as dictated by God. Not saying they should be at this point, but careful your judgement. I also recall the God Lord telling us it is not for us to judge, that’s his job. Your judgement of their placement in hell, places your own soul at such risk. How about you let God do his job as I believe he is certainly much more qualified.
Hate will kill you, literally and spiritually. Remeber, as stated by God, you too are a sinner. Period.

I swear, I am sure the older kids would be all happy and excited if Meri had another child. They havent been too trilled around Robyn and her kids at all when they met, they just acted “happy” because it was for their dad.

but It seems they would be happy for any other child from the first 3 moms because thats who they grew up with. :)

I love the teenagers..

I think Robyn and her kids are annoying.. They have a dad!! DOnt call a stepdad DAD because its on tv!!

Bonnie, you have got to be kidding me! If you don’t think giving birth in the US is screwed up, watch The Business of Being Born. Robyn’s concerns are valid, and hospitals are for sick people. Americans are terrified of having natural births and your cynicism on the idea of it is further proof. 1/3 of births in the US are c-sections and we have the highest infant mortality rate of all the developed countries in the world. Please find something else to hate on about this family because giving birth naturally is empowering and the way it should be, if possible for the woman.

So it turns out Robin is tougher than alot of people thought. I give her alot of credit for having a baby at home. I wouldnt do it. She is realy getting slammed alot and its because she is such a nice girl. Or is it because she is smaller? Give her a break. She is strong to come into a home that already has been complete. She comes in and has to fit it. That would be horrible. She isnt my favorite but she is a strong good understanding woman.

Hello, strong women have been having kids at home for years and years and years. There were never any drug or anything given to women in the day… So, your smoking crack CAROL… Any women willing to screw another womans husband isn’t a strong or good woman. GET YOURSELF RIGHT WITH GOD AND THEN YOU WILL UNDERSTAND.

I feel the brown family have changed the way alot of people including myself feel about poligamy life. I am no more open to people who choose to life that life. I actually like the family and think it would be fun to have them as neighbors. They have done a great thing for the other poligamist by coming out. I feel if we have no right to pick who is married to whom (men to men, women to women) as long as the children are not being hurt by it. This kids might not like moving from Utah, but alot of children are unhappy with their parents choices. This kids are not ignored but loved by many. They are more together than alot of “normal” married peoples children. I really like this family.

This bunch has completely scrambled the lives of the older kids. They loved Utah, but, Dad’s needs rule first! He’s a creep, who only cares for himself. How many of those kids have health ins.?? Polygamists all LIVE together, not separate houses. Thanks, to a reality show, they will survive…None of them work.

I just watched the episode in which Robin gives birth to Soloman. I never thought that Robin was the right fit for the family and that she and Kody spend far more time together than he spends with the other “wives”. After watching her ask Meri if she wanted he to be a serrogate for Mary and Kodi, I feel she has made the ultime offer and does belong in the Brown family. I dont cry easly but this show made me cry for the last 15 munutes. Well done!

Before watching the show, I found the idea of polygamy to be nauseating and felt pity to the “victims”. Especially after most of the media attention surrounding polygamy was based on sexual abuse of children, degrading women, brain washing, and lack of freedom. And I still believe that this holds true for many people(especially women and children) in that community. However, since watching sister wives, I have changed my mind or at least decided that not all polygamists are brainwashed along with all of the other stereotypes. Although I would not want to be in that lifestyle, I do not find it offensive and feel more educated on polygamy. The Browns seem like very normal people, who choose to live their unique lives publicly. Of course they get jealous and I do not think they deny that. What they seem to be implying is they try and overcome negative feeling and emotions such as jealousy. No matter what we believe in and how we live our lives, we are not infallible beings. There is not anyone who lives their lives exactly by the book. In any family you are going to have issues such as time management, hormonal teens,banter among siblings, etc. Many of their problems get blamed on polygamy instead of chalking it up as normal family issues.

I like this family,I support the life they WANT to live. I know that we-the public- only get to see what happens on the show and we don’t really know what goes on when the cameras are not rolling. But I would really love to see Kody spending more time with the kids! These children are precious!! That is my biggest thing with it all,and I do understand the purpose of the show is to allow us all to view a completely different lifestyle and be a part of it for a few minutes. But still,some of the kids seem to be getting bitter and that’s sad. Annnnnddddd I don’t know if Robyn was a right fit for the family. That’s just my personal and intrusive opinion. Buttttt… I had to say it.
