Blonde, tousle-haired Kody Brown, 43, is the husband of four wives and the father of 16 children and, as the second half of Season Two opens, viewers learn that another child is on the way. The offspring of Kody, an advertising salesman, and his most recently acquired wife Robyn, 32, will be the first “Nevada baby” for the Brown clan. “A baby is a physical manifestation that there is an intimate relationship between a husband and his wife… one of his wives,” states Robyn, quickly correcting herself.
One of the problems with Sister Wives is that once you get over the plural marriages, it’s pretty boring. All of the wives seem to get along and Kody, himself, is something of a pussy cat. One does wonder who’s footing the bill for four separate residences but, hey, this is American television.
So, it’s no wonder that the focus in this premiere has shifted to the children of the terrible teen years. By the episode’s end the families have organized a pool party for the teens and some invited friends. Kody wants to make sure that the youngsters are hanging out with people who understand the Browns’ “conservative” values.
