After Meri Brown came clean about her online affair on the Nov. 15 Season 6 finale of ‘Sister Wives,’ she also revealed on Twitter that she and her family received threats because of it. See Meri’s tweet about protecting her family below!
Meri Brown, 44, made a shocking confession to her Sister Wives family on the Season 6 finale of the TLC reality show about having an online affair with what she thought was another man. Although it turned out that Meri was a “victim of catfishing” in the affair, she still faced some major backlash for her scandalous actions. Following the episode, Meri explained that she openly admitted to everything for her family’s safety!
“There were enough threats made to me & my family that I did what I thought I had to do to protect them,” Meri wrote on her Twitter page. Considering Meri’s confession was filled with tears, it wasn’t easy for her to admit her affair. While she didn’t elaborate on the threats she received, evidently they were enough for Meri to feel like she had to own up to her actions!

Despite receiving threats from onlookers, Meri’s family members weren’t nearly as aggravated about her affair. Before the episode aired, a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Meri’s family has already forgiven her for her affair. “They’re not blaming her for it at all. They understand why she got caught up in it – she was feeling lonely and neglected,” the insider said. “They’ve all vowed to make sure she never feels that way again, since she came clean the whole family has rallied around her to show their their love.”
