Yikes! ‘Sister Wives’ star Meri Brown has revealed how close she came to leaving husband Kody and her other sister wives for an online lover that turned out to be ‘catfishing’ the reality star. She fell for a man named Sam on the internet, only to find out she’s been duped!
Meri Brown, 44, has admitted she developed intense feelings for what she thought was a man she met online. The Sister Wives star began falling for “Sam Cooper” when it turned out she was being catfished by a woman in Oklahoma, who was preying on lonely Meri’s feelings. Now that Meri has come clean to her family about the online affair, she’s revealing how she almost strayed from 46-year-old husband Kody Brown!
“This person pushed that on me, He started saying all the right things. He started saying very flattering comment and expressing affection and love to me and I fell for it. I started to love who he was portraying himself to be,” Meri admitted in a Sister Wives tell-all special on TLC Nov. 22.
But once she found out that the person she was falling for was actually a woman preying on her feelings, “I just knew I had to (tell her family)” Meri revealed, fearing the catfisher would ruin her life. “I believe that what the goal was — to break up this family.” Oh no, poor Meri!

Husband Kody admitted he knew something was amiss with Meri during her involvement with “Sam.” “I didn’t know what to think,” he said when Meri came clean about her catfishing. “At the time it seemed so vague. I didn’t want to push her…she hasn’t felt well, hasn’t seemed like herself for a long time,” he said, noting he saw a change in Meri during her six month online involvement.
But he’s totally forgiven Meri for seeking out attention from someone else. “What I see is somebody she made friends with, somebody she felt safe with, but she was just having a communication,” Kody revealed.
“This is somebody who I see was trying to exploit her — to literally harm our family and find some way to damage our children. So nothing but forgiveness in this case. I see it as a flirt. So what,” he noted saying he doesn’t “even know what emotional infidelity is.” Way to forgive and forget Kody! We’re sure it’s a great relief to Meri.
