The Sister Wives gang is back and for Season 2 we are thrown right into the thick of things as we get to see the Brown family on the eve of the Season 1 premiere — and being outed as polygamists.
Dealing with a teenage daughter isn’t exactly smooth sailing, but when you’ve got 18 kids? Forget about it! The stars of the TLC reality show Sister Wives — Kody Brown and his four wives (Meri, 39, Janelle, 40, Christine, 37, and Robyn, 31) — have got to be stretched to their limits keeping up with so many kids, but their problems with their rebellious teens have reportedly gotten a lot worse since the show’s premiere on TLC last month. “The daughters seem messed up from this situation,” a neighbor who lives near the Brown’s Lehi, Utah, home tells In Touch. “It is no wonder that the teenagers of the Sister Wives family are rebelling. They are living in a surreal world where they are being told that it’s natural and wonderful for a man to have several wives,” Beverly Hills celebrity psychiatrist Dr. Carole Lieberman tells HollyBaby.com.
While the topic of polygamy is obviously a hotbed issue for certain people, it is safe to assume that those tuning into a show dealing with the practice are at least accepting of it enough to want to learn more and be educated. Six episodes in, all that Sister Wives has taught us is that the wives really enjoy having tons of kids running around and help from other female adults. Oh, and sometimes get jealous. Really guys? We’re not going to be delving any deeper?
Even though Kody Brown and his family appear to be incredibly well adjusted on TLC’s docu-series Sister Wives, many people are still skeptical. But now a husband and wife in the Brown’s hometown of Lehi, Utah, tell HollywoodLife.com that Kody, his wives, and their 16 children couldn’t be happier with their polygamist lifestyle.
A new and somewhat darker side of the polygamous Brown family is beginning to show according to new reports that claim Kody Brown‘s second and third wives, Janelle and Christine, want out of their marriage but would be forced to leave their children!
On the outside, Kody Brown — the star of TLC’s new reality show Sister Wives (premiering Sept. 26) — seems like a regular Joe. When he’s not working as a salesman, he enjoys spending time with his kids and playing with his dog in the yard. But there is one big thing that sets him apart from most other fathers. He’s got THREE wives. After being married to Meri, 39, Janelle, 40, and Christine, 37, for the past 16 years, he’s now looking to bring a younger woman, Robyn, 31, into the family, much to the other ladies dismay. How are Robyn’s three children from a previous marriage going to adjust to their new life with multiple mommies? According to relationship expert Dr. Gilda Carle, Robyn’s kids are likely to have a hard time adjusting to their new life. “They are about to be upstaged by a bunch of children they don’t even know,” she tells HollyBaby.com. “Going from a small family to a giant one is overwhelming, They’re in for a lot of culture shock.”
