On TLC’s Sister Wives, the Brown family appears to be a happy, functioning example of polygamy — but our expert explains the real dangers of a polygamous lifestyle!
If you’re like most people, you probably don’t know a ton about polygamy; you might even think it’s legal in some states. After watching the Sept. 26 season premiere of TLC’s new reality show, Sister Wives, I was shocked to see four happy women living under one roof, sharing one man [Kody Brown], with seemingly little problems. Wondering if this wasn’t the most accurate representation of life in a polygamist family, I decided to do some digging.
Utah police are investigating the Brown family on suspicion of polygamy, but TLC tells HollywoodLife.com this will NOT cause them to cancel the show!
The star of TLC’s Sister Wives, 41-year-old Kody Brown, could be thrown in jail if he’s found guilty of practicing polygamy in his hometown of Lehi, Utah. But even if the husband with four wives is put behind bars, TLC won’t pull the show. Read More!
Kody Brown, ‘husband’ of four dopey women and father of 13, and the star of TLC’s new ‘Sister Wives’ show, is such a cute, friendly huggy-bear of a man, you can absolutely see how he could convince self-esteem-less women to feel lucky to join his harem. Kody, 42, looks and sounds like a totally “awesome”…
Kody Brown, a fundamentalist Mormon father of 13, and his three (soon to be four) wives are putting their polygamous family on display in the new show Sister Wives. Many people are outraged over the new show, but at HollyBaby.com we can’t help but wonder if this kind of lifestyle is really healthy for the kids.
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.”
