In 2011, the Sister Wives Blog started out as a place to talk about the TLC reality show "Sister Wives", Kody Brown and his wives Christine, Robyn, Meri and Janelle. Today we not only discuss the show, we discuss Polygamy in our society, and the public perceptions of the Mormon Religion. We discuss "Polygamy USA" and will be covering "My 5 Wives."
This blog is geared towards the adult reader, so please, no one under the age of 18 years. Thank you!
DISCUSSION TIME - SISTER WIVES - A Wife in Labor, S01E04
"Discussion - Kisses and Dolls"
S01E4 “Wife in Labor” has ALWAYS bothered me for two reasons. One, Robyn had the chutzpah about her to follow Kody out the door to embrace. I just watched it again, and he gave her no “come hither” look. She just had to get that smooch. Herpompousness to think Kody couldn’t make it a few hours without one of her butterfly kisses I simply thought was not nice. Look at her in the picture, it seems she enjoyed getting caught.
Remember Christine saying they didn’t even kiss till over the marriage alter and how upsetting THAT was? How insulting was it that she would demand such attention at this special time in Christine’s life? It throws out the window the intimacy that’s usually shared between a husband and wife during birth. THAT really shows what kind of sister wife she’s going to be, and I am sure they are all WELL aware of it. And the wedding dress, etc., etc., etc. I don’t think the other wives would do that.
Two, the infamous dollhouse used to remind the kids of the family, or possibly to remember all their names? I loved Barbie’s as a kid. I and my BFF, Kimber, played until we were in the 8th grade. The cool cheerleaders had a secret. We used to put them in a brown papers bag to carry them to and fro so the hunky football players who lived near us wouldn’t know what we were up to.
I don’t recall us having the dolls making out much, oh maybe we did with the boy being our boyfriend. If we did, it certainly wasn’t our PARENTS doing the deed! How Creepy is That? The whole idea of the “Kody” doll and the “Janelle, Christine, and Robyn” dolls is different. Did you ever play dolls and have it where it was your parents? I didn’t, it was always ME! Did it seem fine to you? I know my boys thought it was weird, not that they play dolls, but, have on occasion to appease their nieces. They laughed and said the girls were always queens or Miss America. It might have been fine. I dunno.
