‘Sister Wives’ Tell All
In one of the most talked about moments of the season, Meri admitted that she wanted to go back to school. Although she had Kody’s support, as HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Robyn was upset that Meri was going back to college and did not share her passion for My Sisterwife’s Closet.
Robyn voiced her concerns again saying, “Ditched it really the word, not betrayed. I felt like a little kid who wanted to play with her friend, and she was like ‘I’m going to go play over here.’ Honestly, the relationships outside of our family are easier. These relationships take work, and she can go to college that’s great, but she will find these outside relationships very quickly, very easily.”
Although Robyn was obviously concerned, Christine and Janelle both agreed that going back to school was actually something that Meri needed to do. Since Meri’s daughter, Mariah is out of the house and off at school they both have felt that Meri has been less engaged with the family and feel that if she follows her own goals, she will step back into the family more.
In the most intense moment of the entire season, Kody opened up about how he did not feel like he was actually in charge of the family.
The father of 17 said, “I have felt for years now that I do lead, but it’s always a consensus. I see a path that I want to be able to go, and I will use our move to Nevada as an example because I personally felt like I knew what I needed to do, and I led. It was successful, as sad as it was.”
He continued, “I had to go to each one of them to actually discuss and sell the issue, I had to go and say ‘listen, this is why we need to do this, and here are the reasons. I love you and I need your support, would it be ok?’ I’m literally asking for permission from each one of them. In our world I feel like that is fair leadership, but it’s exhausting.”
Luckily, there were of course some hilarious moments! Kody’s hair has always been a topic of conversation, and this season we got to see several new do’s, including a straightened Keith Urban esque look and a sleek ponytail at the request of Janelle.
The ladies were asked how they prefer Kody’s hair and it was a split decision. While no one loved the straight look, Janelle and Robyn think Kody should wear his hair in a ponytail more often, while Meri and Christine like him au-natural with plenty of voluminous waves.
The Kids Take The Hot Seat
The adults weren’t the only one’s on blast. While catching up with some of the older children, host, Tamron Hall had to call out Logan, 19, for a sexy shirtless selfie that he took and posted to Instagram.
The fitness junkie said, “I’ve put on some weight. I’ve been working hard. I’m really into fitness and stuff, so a lot of people who I follow on Instagram or other social media, they routinely post shirtless pics.”
Sure Logan, blame it on the people you follow! Either way, he clearly is taking his fitness seriously and looks great!
A question that has been on every viewers mind since the beginning, is if the children will also pursue the polygamous lifestyle. While Logan admitted that he had no interest in having multiple wives, his little brother, Hunter, is still undecided.
“I’m not sure, I still have plenty of years to decide, it’s not something that I am looking at right now,” Hunter said.
When the adults came back to the couch to wrap things up, things got tense very quickly.
Viewers saw Christine suddenly get up and ask to leave and take a moment to herself mid interview. Tamron explained that originally Robyn and Kody were going to have a sit down just the two of them to discuss the possibility of them having another child. When all of the wives were there, Christine became upset and Robyn insisted that there be no mention of future children.
Thankfully, Christine came back quickly and was ready to proceed with the rest of the interview.
The final topic of the night was if another wife could possibly be added into the mix.
Kody answered honestly saying, “I really don’t think so, that’s not in my stars. It’s a fair question, however, I’m really, I talked earlier about how it is to have all my wives sort of say, ‘hey I miss you, I feel like I’m getting cheated on time.’ We are good then, if nobody is really feeling like we have this huge abundance of time, I think we have met our capacity and we are going to stay with it the way it is.”
With the kids getting older it seems like Kody and the wives are content with their current family situation. We can’t wait to see what else the Browns have in store for us!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Were you surprised Christine walked off? Do you think Kody is in charge of the family?
