‘Sister Wives’ Kody Brown Threatens Meri: I’m Going To Have More Kids

Kody Brown is done with being Mr. Nice Guy about Meri’s babymaking indecision. In last night’s, Nov.26th, episode he tells her — I’m having more kids with or without you!

Kody Brown doesn’t think 17 children with his four wives Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn are enough, and he let Meri — just the mother of one — know that loud and clear.

Kody Says He’s Having More Kids

Meri, 41, Kody’s wife #1, has been dragging her feet deciding whether to try again to have another baby using wife Robyn, wife #4, as her surrogate. Robyn made the generous offer to Meri several months ago in hopes of making Meri a mother again. Meri has been tormented by infertility since giving birth to daughter Mariah, now 17.

But Meri, after crying for years over her infertility, has now been in tears again because she can’t decided whether she actually wants another baby. It turns out that Meri has learned to love the independence that comes from having only one almost grown child.

But sperminator Kody has had enough. He lays it on the line to Meri telling her, “I’m going to have more kids.”

In other words — with or without you Meri — I’m not stopping at 17. Clearly six with wife Janelle and six with wife Christine aren’t enough. Robyn only has four, so he probably feels like she can handle another couple or maybe he does plan on taking a fifth wife, to expand his brood even more.

Kody does want to give Meri first dibs on being next to have his pawn. “In two months, we’re going to start choosing the doctor and dropping the cash,” he urges her.

Meri Breakdowns but Kody Barely Relentless

When she breaks down again, he finally relents and agrees to give Meri five months to decide whether she’s ready to procreate again.

“We just can’t keep going in these circles,” he warns her. “You might feel different when we’re in our new homes. I know it’s hard.”

“I don’t think you do,” Meri shoots back. And obviously he doesn’t. Kody is so focused on still expanding his brood, he’s not interested in whether Meri’s sharing his gigantic family goal.

Of course, the big mystery in Sister Wives is how the Browns can afford an 18th, 19th or 20th kid, when aside from their TV show, they have no visible means of support. Their new online etail business, My Sister Wife’s Closet, can’t be pulling in big bucks yet!

Their Troubled Finances

Finances sort of seem to be an issue. After all, last week’s episode was all about getting loans so the family could afford to buy four gigantic houses next to each other on a suburban Las Vegas cul de sac.

And finances seem to be an issue when wives #2 and #3 particularly gang up on Meri for wanting a house as big as theirs, even when she only has one child, and they have six each.

In the Brown family it turns out,  finances are divided four ways between the wives and their families — regardless of size. This hardly seems fair to Janelle and Christine, and they can’t help themselves from repeatedly slamming Meri, who wants the same size house as theirs.

“I worried that what I needed would be sacrificed in the name of the budget,” Janelle confesses.

“I thought Meri should get a smaller home because she has less kids,” Christine agreed.

Meanwhile, Meri was once again crying because, “I’d loved to have needed a seven-bedroom home, but that was not the cards I was dealt,” she sobs.

Meanwhile, she’s particularly upset because she wants a “wet bar” but can only get that if her house has a fifth bedroom, so she’s going to be “forced” to have all that extra room.

“It’s been a struggle for the family to see me have all this extra space. You have no idea how much I was in tears over the fifth bedroom,” she cries. “I don’t want to be judged for having this extra room. I don’t need this extra room.”

Unfortunately, it’s hard to have total sympathy for Meri’s big problem – she wants too big a house. No wonder Kody wants to get her knocked up again — then he might not have to listen to his other wives complaining about her hogging more than her fair share.

Oh — the problems of having multiple wives.

The Kids’ Speak Out

No wonder daughter Madison repeats her vow that she doesn’t want a “big family myself — everyone’s in my business.” Daughter Aspyn says she wants a plural family but doesn’t want “to wait around to find the perfect one,” and oldest son Logan seems less than enthusiastic about having multiple wives. “In 20 years, I want to have a wife and… maybe others later.”

Perhaps, that’s why Kody’s so keen on fathering more kids. He wants to make sure he produces enough future polygamists.

Good luck, Kody!

Check what these people are making per episode per adult. Money trouble? Hardly! Yall re so right about Meri. I saw her have a meltdown BC her house wouldn’t be ready by Christmas. Sometimes I wis I had a Sister wife; I’d get her to share all MY responsibilities. It is a strange interesting family and so what; let them have at it BC it doesn’t hurt me. BTW google the salaries.

I think Meri should file divorce, get a job, and take them all for adultery and get her money and walking toward a new life without the cult lagging behind her.

I think it’s silly that people think they have the right to judge and to accuse. You don’t know them, you aren’t them, so how can you know anything other than what you see on television? They only let you see what they want you to see. Don’t forget, they always twist things around to make TV shows more interesting. Maybe stop worrying about their lives so much and worry about your own? It’s a television show, not something to make an argument over. You will never know the full truth. Remember that.

I think Cody is a jerk. He thinks is all that but he only thinks of himself. He has his wife’s paying for their own houses. The children is his too and he should be buying all the houses and stop having the wife’s support him. He needs to get off his high horse and be a man.

I think Robyn has the truest heart. She is willing to be a surrogate to old whiny Meri and Robyn wanting more children herself is no spring chicken. Well Kody OMG thinks he is the cock of the walk. He slings his hair like a young Brad Pitt! Wake up Kody not close not even a little bit close. lol

I know they chose this but it seems so sad. Their marriages seem like 4 separate contests, and you have to be careful how much affection you show. Whenever Kody or one of the wives cry I have never seen a husband-wife comfort situation really. Also, they never seem to be very affectionate with each other. It is probably due to respect, but that is no way to grow a marriage. It is just a big competition for who can bear the most children and get the most attention.

Why does he have children older than his marriage? He and his first wife only have 1 child. His second wife and he have an 18 year old and this child is older than his only legal daughter by marriage.

He married Meri first but they didn’t have children till later because of her fertility issues. His first child was with his second wife and so was his second child. His daughter with Meri is actually his third child.

Kody has no visible emotions whatsoever. He is emotionally numb from being so “spoiled” and stretched so thin. This is no way to live. You don’t fill the holes in your romantic life with more romances. God fills holes in your heart. Not women. It’s a never-ending vicious cycle that is difficult to come back from.

Meri is THE real wife, the one with the college degree…the one who lost her job due to Kody’s decision to showcase their lifestyle, Meri brought in income, she didn’t have any creditors hunting her down, and trief for many, many years to have more children..
as she syffered miscarriages she watched Kody have children with his other wives…it would be traumatic for anyone, she is in her 40′s, and to use Robyn as a surrogate would be STRANGE…there is too great of an emotional attachment to Robyn, Kodu’s pressure is borderline abuse…a stranger-durrogate IF that is what Meri wants is the way to go.as for the BUDGET…Meri was one of the primary money earners, making it possible for this family to live BEFORE the TV show….divide the funds equally, that is the fair, right, thing to do….Meri nevet said well I make X amount of $$ I should get to keep it because they stay home, turnabout is fair play

What the hell does ‘ody do? He had these woman declare bankrupcy which only keeps them clung to him. So, what’s next if they get into debt? Have the kids declare bankrupcy? I think people should only declare bankrupcy if they need to, he is having the wives do it because in all truth. He cannot support that family, just a damn shame

Meri should get the house that she wants as long as the other wives get what they want. She is after all the only real “wife”. It shouldn’t have anything to do with how many children she does or doesn’t have. Kody likes to claim that he treats all of the wives equally. Put your money (or the working sister wives’) where your mouth is. These women signed on to share their bounty with the other sister wives, then do it and shut up.

Kody is trying to produce a cult which will worships at his feet. He has plenty of children already but wants more…for what? Obviously, these women are not as happy with their situation as they want the world to believe. So sad…but you reap what you sow.

How about this for a poll: Should Meri stop using the “I couldn’t have more children” excuse to be greedy and hoard from children she claims are as much her children as they are their bio mom’s? Meri is such a manipulator; she obviously doesn’t want to have another child and that is fine, great even, but she is using her so called “indecision” as an emotional bartering tool with the rest of her family. This woman is too much; notice how when she is in the hot spot the tears begin to roll and the get out of jail free card she pulls out every show is “I couldn’t have more kids, I wish I had”. And notice how this seems to shut everyone up and let her off the hook every time. Is she still going to be using this when she’s 60? Probably. What a whiny, whiny, selfish, manipulative, spineless woman. It’s too bad Janelle and Christine’s strong personalities and thoughtfulness haven’t rubbed off on Meri.

Oh, I had to add: What about Robin. If she wants more kids but has offered to be a surrogate for Meri, how long will she have to wait around for Meri to decide if she wants her to be her surrogate? None of these gals are young, and if they are going to have more children sooner is better than later physiologically anyway. So, how long will Meri continue to mess with everyone else’s lives? Until she gets her super super big empty home, and her 16 “kids” have to struggle for daily necessities! What happens when TLC cancels the show, who will pay for the mortgages then? And, heres a thought: How many women in the world can’t have children naturally and can’t afford a surrogate? Meri, that was one hell of a generous offer you have been made and to be so cold and indifferent to it, why not stand up and say NO, I don’t want more kids rather than throw your emotional baggage around? Just how many women get offered a free surrogate? WOW! Meri, shame, shame, shame, on you. You are such a thoughtless, selfish person!

Okay, one more thing pointing out Meri’s emotional manipulating and selfishness. Just how many vacations have been shown since the show aired? Half a dozen or so? Okay and of those vacations Meri is the only one who gets to go to exotic and EXPENSIVE places. The other wives go to diner or hiking. Meri wants a huge house with all the trimmings for herself, and yet how many kids are there to put through college? Why is this woman so selfish? Is she trying to punish the other women’s fertility by hoarding everything she can from their children? So you couldn’t produce six kids yourself and that really hurts your feelings, for that I empathize, but why are you so greedy and selfish about it towards the rest of your family….Meri you are one nasty, selfish, manipulating, spineless, two-faced woman who really deserves a reality fine (verses reality check, which she receives from TLC every season!) It was a pun…

You are speaking right out of my mind !!!

Meri is a horrible person, very selfish and manipulative. I wish that Janelle + Christine would finally speak up. Is Cody blind that he is not seeing Meri for how she really is…?

It is clear that she doesn´t want another child. She just doesn´t say it because that would make her lose her “get out of jail free card”. She would have to stop complaining about not having more children if she declined now. And then she could no longer demand the most of everything for her “poor self” in the name of compensation for her childlessness…

Since she doesn´t have small children she could at least be working full time and contribute to the family´s finances. What is her excuse for not working?

She is just a selfish and mean-spirited troll. I wish she would get her act together and start being more altruistic and more respectful towards the other wives.

I totally agree with you dixon. I think Meri loves the fact that she only has 1 biological kid with Kody. She is buffaloing everyone with her fake tears and constant whining about not having more though. Robyn has already offered to be her surrogate. I think Meri is very self centered. We have to remember that she that decides when, and if;Kody gets another wife; also who the other wives will be. She did not deserve that big house. They basically just moved in and her 1 and only kid is leaving for college.

You know I think its very unfair for Janelle, Christine and Robin to expect Meri to have a smaller home then theirs because of the children. Meri is the legal wife and she’s been a main suporter of all these womens and Kody’s children. No one is thinking ahead when holidays come and the children are grown and married that Meri will so graciously let her sister wives children use her house when they are in town for a hotel. Christine all I have to say is you made your bed now lie in it. A suggestion, Kody it’s time for a snip, snip so that you can stop stressing about all your financial troubles.

Why any woman would want to be in a polygamous relationship, let alone with a gross loser like this guy, is beyond me. I think if was Meri, who is his only actual legal wife, I’d tell him to quit pushing or I’d file for divorce. He’d be doing his stupid ‘relationship math’ out the other side of his mouth if he had to pony up for alimony. Jerkoff.

I really hate how he says love should be multiplied not divided. It’s a dumb dumb dumb phrase. Love is not divided from one wife unless its called a divorce you still multiply with one wife you idiot. I feel bad for meri being called selfish because she wants a bigger house that she can’t fill. Honestly, the rest are probably just pissed off because they can’t have as much room in that big of a house.

You need to add the rest of Janelle’s comment that included she was worried about FEEDING her children since their finances were in such a dire strait when Meri INSISTED on a large rental home. She DOESN”T NEED the same space as someone with 6 children–I know first hand because I am an only child. With Meri, it’s I WANT, I WANT, never what does someone else need. She WANTS a wet bar so badly that she will probably have 5 bedrooms, since this is the only plan that she can get all that she WANTS from their builder.

Will the cost of invetro, IF she decides to do it, come out of her budget or from the entire family’s budget?
