Bonnie Says: 'Sister Wives' Kody Brown Breaks Down In Tears After He Fears His Family Will Be Torn Apart — But It's HIS Fault!

Kody Brown, you’re the one who chose TV fame knowing that it could put your polygamist family at risk, so why are you crying now?

Sister Wives Kody Brown wanted to have it all — his four wives, 16 children, fame and fortune, AND the chance to promote polygamy as an acceptable lifestyle.

But now fame has bitten him in the backside with the state of Utah investigating his family and now he as the “leader” has decided that all the Browns must flee to Las Vegas, to live in polygamist peace.

The only problem is that Kody decided the family had only eight days to find new homes, FOUR new homes to be exact, and he’s in a full-on polygamist panic.

He’s upset that there are — surprise! — no fifteen bedroom homes in Las Vegas. “Our realtor Mona tells us there are no BIG family homes here, like in Utah,” Kody laments. Hmm! I wonder why.

He says he needs to say good night to all four of his wives before bed each night so proximity of their living spaces is very important. Yea, I’d say so. At least polygamy  must keep you in shape Kody- all that running from house to house and bedroom to bedroom.

That’s why when he and his four wives find out there are no huge homes in Las Vegas, they decide to look for FOUR homes on the same street if possible.

FOUR homes — How do the Browns afford this? It’s the biggest mystery of Sister Wives, especially since all four homes they find are a nice size and in the same subdivision. But there’s no real discussion of how Janelle and Christina will squeeze in with six kids each, while Meri has just one.

Nonetheless Kody is still freaked. “I don’t want my kids to grow up like cousins instead of siblings, the proximity of the homes is the key to keeping the family together,” he moans to Mona Rieki, who has to be the world’s most understanding and sympathetic real estate agent.

He also manages to drop the news that the houses will accommodate “more children!” Yikes, Kody isn’t done reproducing! He wants MORE than his flock of sixteen kids!

Meanwhile, his five oldest teen children struggle with leaving their friends and schools — a move necessitated by their dad going public with their TV show and setting off the investigation.

Brave oldest son Logan, 15, defends his parents’ polygamist living arrangement: “It’s not a crime, it’s a lifestyle choice,” and tells his teen sibs that they have to give out a “positive vibe” to their younger sisters and brothers to help them through the move.

It’s heartbreaking to see these kids maturely trying to keep their spirits up while their parents, who chose fame, turn their children’s lives upside down.

Kody breaks down in tears when his offer on the four houses falls through and he faces the reality that the family will move in seven days with no place to go. He’s a way bigger baby than his oldest son, who never asked to be exposed as a “polyg kid” on national TV.

Sorry Kody — You wanted the truth out, now you have to accept the consequences that for many good reasons, polygamy IS against the the law!

I watched the show every Sunday. I too see Kody Brown as a horny dog who got bored with his first three wives because they had gotten old and fat and decided to court Robyn the slim young thing and marry to her so that he can legalize having sex with her whenever he feels and not feel like he is cheating on his previous wives. From the show you can see that he idolizes Robyn and always wants to spend more time with her than he does with the other three wives. He does however spends a lot of time with Meri though maybe because she is good friends with Robyn and she was the one who encourage him to marry her. TI think Meri did this out of spite to the other two wives because she felt as if they stole her husband and because they had more kids for Kody than her so she wanted to let them know how she felt when they married her husband so she encouraged him to marry Robyn to make them feel jealous and insecure. This worked out in Meri favour because Christine hated robyn and saw her as the enemy. Because Christine was the third wife for so long even though it does look like she loves Kody and he does not love her. She felt that he was done choosing wife so it made her feel uncomfortable when young pretty Robyn step into the picture. meri didnt care all she knew was that her plan worked. Janelle is so reserved i don’t know what she is thinking because she never speaks her mind and seems comfortable with everything. Robyn knows she is young and pretty and her body looks great to Kody compared with the other fatties he is used to sexing. Most of the children except for Meri daughter would never want a plural marriage even the boys. They have seen how it has hurt their mothers and must have heard their mothers crying at night when they are in their lonely beds while kody is out sleeping with Robyn.

Why does everyone care how many wives this man has? It shouldn’t be illegal even a little. They are not hurting anyone, in fact that family has more love in it than my mother-father family ever came close to. Making laws based on religion is dumb, but expecting the only religion that counts is YOURS is even more dumb.

i’d agree with you if kids weren’t involved. i could care less how many women this guy is f’ing. but, he’s forcing children to come into a world where they will be treated like outcasts. i guess this is an age old argument used by prejudiced people though— when blacks and whites started reproducing, when gays started raising children, etc. so, maybe i’m kidding myself. but, it just seems a shame that such a disdained lifestyle is being forced upon those kids. it’s not healthy to grow up thinking the world thinks you’re a freak, and feeling you have to hide who you are. but maybe if we weren’t so quick to judge them, the kids wouldn’t have to go through that. i dunno.

Marriage is between one man and one woman. Meri is Kody’s only legal wife. Unfortunately Christine, Janelle, and now Robyn are nothing more than other women he can sleep with (in their so-called religion)without saying what it is, unfaithfulness to Meri. Kody is nothing more than a wuss and cannot nor will not accept responsibility for what he has created….a big mess. I can’t leave these four women out, because they too are just as irresponsible. None of them are thinking of all those kids, which by the way, only Kody and Meri’s daughter is legitimate, all the others are illegitmate, how very sad for all of the kids. Then bring in Robyn’s three kids and look what they have to endure. Robyn should stop being selfish and just let those kids go back to their legal and biological father. She’s playing games with her own kids lives, just really, as the other ‘sister wives’ are doing with their own kids. That’s just pathetic. And a big NO, polygamy absoutely should not be made legal (just as gay marriage should not).

My beliefs lead me to say that marraige should only be between one man and one woman. That’s my beliefs. Our country is accepting of more same sex marraiges and I feel like they are not hurting anyone. The women are all different than the wierdo freaks from the Warren Jeffs cult that gave Polygamy a real bad name.They care deeply for each other and this is thier choice it’s not like the women went into this relationship kicking & screaming.With some of the filth that should be outlawed in this country, I can’t see this as a bad situation. Of course they’re going to have lots to work out because a regular marraige takes work too. I thnik they should find whatever property with some acres and as large a home as possible and add on if they have to. They need a large common kitchen area with a common living space and seperate well lets call them wings of the house for each family privacy when they want it but the kids all love each other and want to be under the same roof.Instead of Paying rent on 4 homes, Take all that money and make something work for the family and it’s a tax write off.

Polygamy needs to remain illegal forever! I really don’t think it is a healthy way of living. I believe if you are a family you need to be able to dish out enough emotional, mental, and financial support. I don’t think it is really possible to do that with multiple wives and a lot of children. I have also read into how polygamists are sometimes on welfare. And I’m sorry but I don’t want to pay for that choice! Oh and if you want to be a polygamist move to the Middle East where it is allow.

The only part of your post I will even give recognition to is that you say ” I have also read into how polygamists are sometimes on welfare. And I’m sorry but I don’t want to pay for that choice!” Lots of people are on support. These people are not and just because they are in this type of relationship does not mean that they will be. You stereotype one set of people when there are MANY who are on welfare. HOW RUDE!!!!

Legalizing polygamy would stop the wives who aren’t legally married to the man from collecting a lot of welfare benefits. They wouldn’t be able to claim that they are single mothers anymore. That’s how they do it. They pretend to be single mothers who don’t make much and they get food stamps.

My thoughts…
1. Kody is a puss.
2. Meri is adorable and beautiful and should have her own husband that loves only her.
3. Robyn is manipulitive. She cries at the drop of a hat. Her first husband must be off recuperating some place.
4. Christine is mad and seems to really resent this mess.
5. Janelle, I don’t know what to make of her. She seems to have the most sense of the bunch. Probably figures no one else would want her. Low self-esteem. I think she’s cool.

I’ve watched this show three times. I’m done. After the first night of watching this I could not sleep all night. The show really upset me deep down.

I totally agree with you that Robyn is a big cry baby who cries at the drop of a hat. I mean what is wrong with her she is so annoying if i were her sister wife i would slap her. then you have jealous and insecure Christine who hates young Robyn and then Robyn cries only make s it worse. Christine seems to dislike all the sister wives though and Kody seems to detest Christine which i think she knows. No wonder she detest Robyn because Kody just dotes on Robyn. Like you said i don’t know what to make of Janelle because she is so reserved and seem comfortable with everything. And i love Meri why would a man want another wife with her. i believe that she has reached her wits ends in this marriage that why she has been crying so often in recent times.
