After Christine Brown’s departure, the lives of Kody Brown and the rest of the sister wives changed forever. Now Meri and Janelle Brown are considering leaving Kody for good in the brand-new season of Sister Wives. In the explosive first trailer, Kody faces criticism from all of his wives.
Kody fully admits that he’s in a “bad place” with Janelle. “I don’t even know what to do with Meri,” he says. Meri still has hope things can work out between her and Kody, but Kody is wondering “why she lives in Flagstaff.”
Janelle sits down with Christine and confesses that she doesn’t “want to be married anymore.” Meanwhile, Meri tells Robyn Brown that Kody is “done” with her. Kody and Christine also have a face-to-face candid conversation after their split.
“I just wanted to let you know that I’m not going to be around. It’s not what I want,” Meri tells Kody and Robyn. Robyn begins to break down in tears over Meri’s announcement. Robyn cries in front of the camera and says she always “wanted to sit on a porch with my sister wives with our kids and our grandkids.” That dream appears to be impossible now.
Kody and Janelle get into a heated argument that results in Kody storming out. Janelle asks Kody to sit down and really listen to what she has to say. An angry Kody gets up and declares he’s “done listening” to her. “F*** you,” Janelle says to Kody as he leaves. Everybody’s angry, and these feelings are not going away.
Kody believes that he’s “worked so hard to do what was right.” Now that he’s losing it all, he’s contemplating just being the “devil I think I am now.” The new season of Sister Wives premieres August 20 at 10 p.m. on TLC. Episodes will continue to air on Sundays.
