Bonnie Says: Sister Wives' Kody Brown, You're A Fame Whore! You Loved Going Public On Show Premiere!

Posted Mon, March 14, 2011 11:07am EDT

Sister Wives’ Kody Brown, you could barely contain your giddiness in the show, about appearing on the Today Show, despite your children’s fears about being ousted as polygamists.

I’m beginning to think that Kody Brown is just a plain and simple narcissist after watching the Sister Wives‘ premiere on Mar. 13.

The season opens with the family going public in two major ways that really call into question their sensitivity ,or complete lack thereof, to their sixteen children.

It appears that Kody’s three older wives have stopped sniping against newcomer fourth wife, Robyn, in order to focus on — FAME! Kody is bubbling about going to NYC where he and his harem will be interviewed about their polygamist lifestyle and show. He and his wives – Meri, #1, Janelle, #2, Christina, #3, and Robyn, #4, have strangely decided that this is now the perfect time to send almost their entire brood to public school for the first time — where they will most certainly and sadly be teased for being polygamist kids.

Kody, are you thick as a brick? Or simply so insensitive about the feelings of the children you fathered that you would doubly torture your kids? Any normal parent of a teen — let alone several — knows how tough it is to be “different.” You’ve deliberately chosen to reveal your alternative lifestyle on Sister Wives, then were excited about revealing it on The Today Show, on virtually your kids’ first day of non-polygamy school!

It seems clear that it is fame, not faith, that is motivating you right now.

As for being a dedicated dad to your brood, it’s also clear on the show that your sixteen kids are each more attached to their individual moms, who appear to do all the childcaring and raising tasks, than they are to you. You are barely ever seen helping or hanging with your kids.

Instead, Kody, you LOVE LOVE LOVE NYC! However, it is hilarious that when your big moment comes to chat with Meredith Vieira – you freeze!

When Meredith asks you — “Why did you become a polygamist, especially since you didn’t grow up as one?” You had a frozen moment when you groped for an answer and finally responded, “it’s faith-based!”

Well Kody, I think you struggled for an answer because your polygamy has more to do with your horniness than getting into heaven.

Come on Kody, why is fornicating with multiple “wives” necessary for getting into the heavenly kingdom? If it is, Charlie Sheen is coming with you!

I think you’ve finally reached heaven on earth — first with four different women who allow you to bed hop, and now with reality TV fortune and mostly FAME!

The only person who is a narcissist is yourself. You judge Kodi by your Bias not reality, who made you the keeper of the moral high ground.
Unlike you not everyone is not ruled by their genitals.

I THINK AMERICA IS CRAZY, THIS MAN AND HIS 4 WIVES ARE PERFECTLY FINE. THEY LIVE A WAY OF LIFE THAT HAS NO SHAME IN IT WHAT SO EVER. I DO NOT BELIEVE THE RELIGION THEY DO. BUT I HAVE READ MANY TIMES IN OUR BELOVED BIBLE HOW MANY OF OUR OLD TESTAMENT MEN HAD MANY WIVES AND LOVED THEM ALL. YOU I BELIEVE KODY IS A LITTLE COCKY, BUT YOU HAVE TO BE IN THE WORLD WE LIVE IN NOW. THIS SHOULD ONLY BE AGAINST THE LAW WHEN A MAN HAS DIFFERENT LIVES WITHOUT HIS 1ST WIFE KNOWING. WHO ARE WE TO JUDGE THIS MAN. I WOULD BE VERY PROUD TO KNOW THIS FAMILY AND LEARN MORE ABOUT THERE WAYS. I MAY NOT AGREE WITH THE WAY THEY CHOOSE TO LIVE BUT I BY FAR AM NOT GOING TO THROW STONES TO A MAN AND HIS FAMILY THAT HE ALONE TAKES CARE OF. MERI IS WONDERFUL AND JANELLE IS THE ROCK CHRISTINE IS THE HOMEMAKER AND ROBIN IS THE ICING ON THE CAKE. SHE IS THERE TO HOLD EVERYTHING TOGETHER. I THINK KODY NEEDS TO SPEND EVERY OTHER DAY WITH A WIFE, AND ON THE IN BETWEEN DAY TAKE SOME TIME TO THINK THINGS THROUGH. IT WILL MAKE HIM A BETTER HUSBAND AND IT WOULD GIVE HIM TIME TO THINK ABOUT HOW TO MAKE THE WIFE WHO NEEDS THE MOST HAPPY. GREAT SHOW. DONT BE DEPRESSED OVER THIS WORLD. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOUR NEXT SHOW. I HAVE TO BUY ON ITUNES I ALWAYS MISS IT WITH MY KIDS. I AM LATE BUT WONT MISS A EPISODE. THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR LIVES WITH US. MARYBETH

Polygamy had its historical role in the early days when women had to fend for themselves as early pioneers attempting to deal with a yet untamed land, and very hard conditions. The women left their own familiar homelands to follow husbands who died along the way, had to raise children who lost their fathers, loss of home, no resources, and little support systems. The remaining men took the women as wives as a means of female survival in dire times. This practice was done away with when it was no longer needed. I can understand its role at a point in this church’s history. What I do not understand is its current role and practice by Kody Brown and those four women. Especially Kody who was raised as mainsteam Mormon and he was raised with the forementioned type of teaching. It absolutely serves no purpose for him and those women to live this lifestyle in this day and age. In observing Kody, he really isn’t living any true godly principle, bedding four women, creating children who are not legally legimate, except Meri’s daughter,and not even fully supporting all of them. He is merely providing stud service for (3) of the women who seem to lack personal direction for themselves and happy to be oblivious to the world around them. In fairness, I find some perspective in Meri, who is the legal wife. She is not living her life with her head in the sand. The last is why we think they are entertaining?!

I think this man has a big heart, i enjoying this show because it is something i find interesting. it is refreshing and wonderful to see a loving family, as he is trying to raise his large family as one unit. there are many different life styles in this day and age, i just don’t judge any of them. kody came out because he and his family got tired of hiding. but if we all were the same then we would all watch the same things over and over. his marriages may not be legal in the eyes of the law. but i bet if you ask the ladies involved, they our browns. to each there own.

I can’t seem to get through to anyone who’s thinking like me. I’m not advocating for polygamy, I’m simply stating that if these people are not in trouble with the IRS, they need not move. He has one legal wife, and three he’s basically just living with. Find me some place where anybody works where there aren’t people just living with their significant others, and I’ll go off chocolate. If that’s all they have on these folks, they’ve wasted taxpayer money. I don’t know if he claims head of house for all four wives, or, if three of them claim it on their own, but they aren’t on welfare, and he hasn’t been arrested by the IRS, so I am left wondering why they are so freaked out by an investigation. Have they not hired a lawyer? Trust me, if this was the Warren Jeff bunch, or some similar, I wouldn’t be making any suggestions like this. But these kids go to school, are encouraged to seek higher education, are supported by their parents if they choose monogamy, and seriously don’t seem to be in any kind of crisis trouble. Utah needs to work on other polygamists who don’t educate their grade school daughters, and who marry them off underage.

Kody is a modern day brute! He contradicts the law of God and sets a wicked and demonic precedence for those little kids and the future generations. It’s quite idiotic for anyone to copy this debased, unholy and satanistic lifestyle.

I do not blame Meri for the situation she was brain washed by her father it is ok to have more than one wife. Kody is a male slut jumping from one bed to another and not legally. Who does he think he is to rewrite the law and I hope he goes to jail. He does not care about the children and made it very clear when he spent 4 months “courting” Robyn the 4th wife. Do you really think he spends time with his children? It appears his time is spent jumping and planning whose bed he will be in for the night. I do believe Robyns plan is to get rid of the other wives. Wait and see and who knows why the husband left her.

Aren’t all these “Reality” show stars fame whores? Look at the Kardashians? They have absolutely no talent, already have lots of money and just want more and more money for being degenerate sluts. They are no better than
Snooki. And we wonder why the US is falling behind China in terms of education. You don’t need an education to be fame whores. And the networks stage, promote, and make lots of money on this crap. It’s a lot easier for them than producing and directing real actors in a show.

Kody is ridiculously cocky and self-centered, but I do think he cares about his kids. He’s not heartless. His children all seem to be very normal and well-adjusted to me. If anything, I think they probably have it better off than most kids since they have such a big family support structure. Obviously it was a stupid idea to put your kids in public school after starting the show, but I’m sure their hearts were in the right place. I know at least one of the daughters couldn’t go into the career she wanted to unless she started going to public school.

I don’t see why everyone is saying that the kids are screwed up or are victims of child abuse.. Are we watching the same show?

I agree, I love watching Sister Wives, because it is a family. Try growing up as an only child, then lose all your family as you grow old, and finally through circumstances be left all alone and growing old with absoutely no relatives and then you will appreciate a show like Sister Wives. At least the children have each other to lean on going through life. So what if they make money from the show, all the soap opera actors and actresses become very rich. Hope the show is kept on air, interesting to watch.

Sister Wives is a hot mess train wreck I can’t stop watching. Wait until those kiddos go to Public school.
Plus it’s obvious he is smitten with his fourth wife, but why the others put up with his CRAP. I would take my children go to work and sue him for Child Support ASAP. Their children are going to be so upset when they find out the world does not accept them, their living arrangements or their life style..

Kody Brown has found four (4) gullible women to fall for his line of crap. He is simply a selfish male organ on legs. The children are not his main concern (and they should be), but his sexual pleasure is. Also, the women he picked for wifes can’t be too intelligent, or they wouldn’t put up with his line of bull!! Therefore, none of them should be allowed to procreate. I feel very badly for the children – the real victims in this idiocy.

In a society were from a young age celebrity is put forth as something to be revered and celerated, it does not surprise me in the slightest that people who enter into these reality shows can become used to or even addicted to the spotlight. With this being said, this writer has many harsh words for this family, and this fatehr in particular. I find this bizarre since she herself makes her income basically gossiping about celebrities, maybe even becoming a mini celebrity in her own right. I grew uo without a father, and so seeing a man who is the father to not only his own large brood but now also his new wife’s children one of whom has a disability, is honourable. To say that you rarely see him interacting withh his children assumes that you see how they act when the camera’s are not on. These shows are heavily edited, as everyone knows. Also, he works, sometimes up to 60 hours a week. My husband works similar hours so that I am able to stay home with our children, and I would loathe to think what you would have to say about him, or many other parents who make similar sacrefices in order to ensure their family’s financial security.
Secondly, from watching the show, Kody makes it clear that the private school these children attending is not accredited, and so his children will have to get their GED once they graduate. This is limiting to them and whatever future they wish to have. CHanging to the public school system in thei instance seems like a no brainer. I am surprised you didnt mention this fac tin your article?
This show is important in the way that it can show people how normal, and functioning, some poly families can be if they work at it. Prejudice stems from ingnorance, and polygamists have so often had to hide their lifestyles for fear of being rejcted and persecuted. This has not allowed many of us outsiders to fully comprehend their way of life. I often wish I had more help with my children, my family lives in Canada and I am in Australia, the thought of a sister wife or two to assist and support me from time to time is tempting!Lets all try to remember that these are real, imperfect people, just trying ot be the best parents and spouses they can be.

I cannot stand that Kody Brown and his ugly wives! What horrible paretns they are. I do feel sorry for those poor kids! Kody is an uneducated, ignorant, selfish person. I doubt he has a real relationship with those kids? Does he know who their teachers are? their firends? what they are learning in school? their favorite activities? their hopes and dreams? I DOUBT IT! He walks around whining because he does not have his own closet. Those children are victims of child abuse. Thank God they are now in public schools. I am a public school teacher and know it is mandated for teacher s to report any suspicion of child abuse. I don’t have much respect for those women either, exposing those kids to live such a weird existence.

I watch this all the time and enjoy it. I like the women and Cody they all seem very kind and family oriented. Even though I am a strong Christian it is easy to see how you could grow and become a better person when you have to share.

The only think that really bothers me is …..aren’t sexual deseases caused by more than one partner. They are never addressed this. And if by law Cody is only legally married to #1 isn’t that adultry according to our laws what he is doing?? I think it is good they came out and makes us all learn their lifestyles.

STDs are not caused by multiple partners! However, if one of them had an STD, they would all get it. So long as they are all clean and they don’t sleep with someone outside the “marriage” who has an STD, they will all stay STD-free!

Maybe Jenifer Lynn should get her head out of her ass and learn how to spell before she judges other peoples children and life styles. How many kid do you have Jenifer? Try raising eight on your own. I would also suggest to Kate Gosselin maybe she should have some sister wives. I think they are onto something. All those nay sayers should look at history and think about what happened to Harvey Mild the gay activist and what they went through coming out in the 70′s. If you understood anything about life Jenifer you would know its not easy to be different, it takes courage to come out and make the word a more accepting place.

No, I think you are the one who needs to get real. He’s not like the other polygamists who are getting 12-14 year olds to marry them just to procreate. These are all CONSENTING adults and that’s the difference. If nobody is saying ‘this is adultry’ then who are you to say that adultry is being committed?

The kids all seem happy, they all have family dinner together and I think that families with the 2 parents and 2 kids have seen a lot less structure than this family has! Maybe what pisses you off the most is that they have their ‘stuff’ together while you and your family (of the average, 4) do not?
