As new scenes are released regarding the latest episodes of sister wives season 17, fans of the series are up in arms. However, some fans think Kody Brown needs to be “cancelled” after “lighting up” his wives throughout this tumultuous season, primarily in regards to their observations regarding Kody’s relationship with his “favorite wife,” Robyn. Here’s why viewers are so excited.
‘Sister Wives’ fans learn the truth: Kody Brown is ‘pissed off’ by Christine for the way she treats Robyn
All season, sister wives fans waited for a teased moment at the start of the season. As a result, fans wanted to know the real reason behind Kody’s outburst in the episode “Knife in the Kidneys.”
But in a confessional, Christine alluded to Kody’s relationship with Robyn, saying it was hard to stay married to someone who “had favorites and made them known”. She continued with “someone who breaks my children’s hearts. I had to stay with them instead,” before removing his microphone and walking out.
In a trailer, Meri says of Christine, “I’ve seen her non-acceptance of Robyn and her disdain for me over the years.” Kody agreed, telling Robyn, “She treated you like dirt from the start. That’s why I’m pissed.
He yelled at Christine, “Man, just a knife to the kidneys all these years. The sacrifices I made to love you have been wasted. He stormed off, followed by Robyn and Meri. Only Janelle remained to comfort a crying Christine.
Kody Brown Says Janelle Brown Uses ‘Gaslight Mistake’ On Her, But ‘Sister Wives’ Fans Think Otherwise
In a video clip posted to Instagram, Janelle interviewed Kody on the trip after pushing his family to follow the extreme rules surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. She said Kody’s choice to officiate a friend’s out-of-state wedding was “interesting” because he and Robyn were still observing strict pandemic rules. However, Kody called Janelle’s words a “gaslight fallacy” and claimed the pandemic was not the reason the family no longer saw each other.
Fans reacted furiously to the clip and Kody’s behavior throughout Season 17.
“This dude needs to be cancelled,” wrote one fan.
“Kody, Kody, Kody. You ruined the family. YOU. Not Christine, Janelle or the kids. You. (and maybe Robyn) Saying Janelle gaslights you? Pot meets kettle. She’s far from the gas lighting,” wrote a second fan.
“All I hear when he opens his mouth is me, me. Kody is the poster child for narcissism, lies, gaslighting and self-victimization,” a third Instagram fan noted.
However, a fourth viewer said: “You chose your favorite wife Robyn over your whole family. She destroyed your family’s shame on you.
Robyn Brown questioned the legitimacy of Christine’s divorce
In the series, November 6 episode titled “A Polygamous Divorce,” Robyn questioned the legitimacy of Christine’s split from Kody. In a solo interview, Robyn said, “Technically, from what I understand, until Christine is physical with another man, she’s not divorced.”
She later claimed that Christine was “validating our beliefs” by saying she was divorced without going through any formal process. However, Christine is no longer a member of the AUB or Apostolic United Brethren sect of the Mormon religion, which allows polygamy.
However, in the same episode, Christine explained, “Since I don’t have any legal contract that binds me to Kody, we had no legal process to follow,” she said. “None of us are part of that religion anymore. So me just saying I’m divorced, I don’t see the problem there at all.
sister wives airs Sundays at 10 p.m. EST.
