Discussion P1 for s05e2 "Kody Begs For An Answer"

Oh boy, the Browns sure didn't disappoint on this show! Bafoonery all around!

    1. Meri is so completely selfish. I don't know why the rest of them put up with her demanding b.s. about the house! And her constant snivelling about wanting another child but then she can't decide whether she wants to take the steps to make that happen is ridiculous. I think she does it to manipulate everyone into feeling sorry for her so she can have what she wants...ie the huge house she does not need!

    2. agreed . that is her why of getting attentIowa

    3. I really like Janelle and am wishing the best for her. She has kids who seem very insightful and together, especially Logan. The video of Logan as a little kid talking about sharing is precious. Obviously Christine did have some influence over Janelle's kids as the main caretaker while Janelle worked full time. (Where was Meri? Why couldn't Meri, sho purports to be "close" to Robin, help Robin out with the baby and housework?). Christine is likeable as well. Of course, they all went through bankruptcy over the years but of course refrain from any reference to that (I looked it up). Janelle seems so smart; it just seems like she's selling herself short. It's interesting that she and Kody actually grew up in Mormon/LDS home and not polygamy. I'm all for people loving eachother and live and let live; even same sex unions. As Mike Huckabee (and no, I don't consider myself a conservative Republican) said recently while referring to the old testament, there was Adam and Eve, then polygamy, and then God repudiated polygamy. I think there are just inherent problems with it, and that overall the women lose out, especially in terms of respect since it certainly comes across as a 'wife' competition quite often, with the only judge the one husband. I think that's why marriage between just two individuals is seen as a sacrament. No one person holds the power. And boy, Kody comes across as loving it. How interesting that after he came home from his LDS mission to find his parents flip-flopped into polygamy (his dad had a 'testimony'--he liked Janelle's mom) that he had a testimony as well. I am doing my best to stop watching the show or reading any more blogs. I'm finding it a bit challenging, but I promise to increse my effort.

    4. From my understanding Janelle's mom was not his first plural wife. His father took a 2nd wife before Kody married Meri. Janelle did not go visit them until after she divorced Meri's brother and it was at that time her mother tagged along and met Kody's father. This is how it is explained in the book anyway.

      You know I'm halfway through the book and nothing about this seems positive. Meri obviously does not really like living this lifestyle. I honestly think if Kody never took another wife she would have been perfectly happy with that. From the minute Janelle joined that family Meri has been nothing but selfish and bitter. It appears Kody and her never took working real jobs or responsibility seriously.

      Honestly Meri is selfish and always has been. Seriously she HAS to have the 5th room? No you selfish twit give up your wet bar. I swear when they were sitting on the couch and Meri was talking about how she didn't need a 5th room but she has to have it for her "wet bar" you could see it on both Christine and Janelle's faces. Christine looked like she wanted to blurt out "well then give up the wetbar you don't really need you witch" You could tell she was seething underneath.

      I think the equal distrubution of funds is pure BS. That is not fair. So Meri can have all the nice stuff while the others have to try to accomodate larger families on the same budget. That doesn't seem fair to me. It doesn't seem fair Meri gets all these perks in her house while the others have to really plan and keep their cost down while still accomdating large households. Yeah real fair Kody. Oh Meri does not want another baby. She just likes the attention. Like another poster stated it's all she has to draw attention to herself.

      Delete
    5. I agree, Christine has had a huge role in helping bring up Janelle's children since she cared for them while Janelle worked. I think that's where their partnership was a good one. They both got to do what they desired and it benefited them both. I mean isn't that a "perk" of being a sister wife? To help each other out and work out arrangements to benefit everyone involved.

      This is why I do not understand why Robyn needs a nanny. I can see Christine feeling like she has her hands full and refusing to take Sol while Robyn gets manicures. It's not like Robyn has a job. And where in the Heck is Meri? What does she do all day that she can't help Robyn out? It's funny in season one we see the wives helping Christine get ready for the birth of Truely but then it appears no-one is helping Robyn. Why? Is it because now that they are in seperate homes they only look out for themselves?

      Delete
  3. I started watching the show because I wanted to see/learn about the Polygamist Belief System and how they practice their "Lifestyle". I find it offensive that they profess that this is based on religion but are so giddy when they're meeting the teachers (Kody) "How many times have they had a Polygamist Family show up at their school?", (Robyn) "I would love to be a fly on the wall when they go home to their husband or wife". They really enjoy the sensationalism more than they enjoy the "lifestyle". This show has nothing to do with Religious beliefs... at least that's not what I am seeing.

    3. WHY is it just coming out now how much Meri LOVES to entertain? Who and what does she throw big parties for? Not her family. None of them even have a clue what's going on w/each other and their kids. Hell, they just spent a week and a half together and they couldn't even discuss Logan's graduation plans while they were all together. Most hare-brained and disorganized "close family" ever!

      Delete
    4. So Meri gets to be "THE ENTERTAINER" hostess cause she has the discretionary income none of the other wives have. She has one kid but gets the same amount as if she had the six or seven the others have. beeyatch!! I'm sure if it's her family she's entertaining tho, she still makes them bring all the food/treats for their own brood tho. Which then is an EXTRA expense for them that might not be in their budget if Meri insists they bring some pricey stuff for her "partay. " Do the wives and kids really even care for her parties or they just know they all have to go to stay on her good side and therefore Kody's?

      Who else does she entertain??????

      Delete
    5. She is grasping at straws as to why she needs such a big house. She needs a hobby room so she has a dedicated space to sit around and whine about how she has no more children. And she is going to stretch out whether she wants to do IVF or not so she can hide behind that to attempt to hide her selfishness about the hobby room/pantry/wet bar fiasco. It's ridiculous. She is so transparent. She even pretends to be so troubled about having to have a 5th bedroom (GASP!) but if you watch, when she says it she is trying very hard not to smile. Ugh. She's wretched. I am sorry, but she is.

      Delete
    6. Why couldn't she just use the extra bedrooms for hobby rooms and if they are so religious why is she flipping out about the wet bar? THAT is a deal breaker? After all they have gone through? Weird.

      Delete
    7. yay, i love this idea!! **throws confetti**

    8. What bothers me the most about Meri and her wet bar/5th bedroom/entertaining argument is it never occurs to her that if she gets what she wants, some of the children of Janelle, for instance, will have to go without. It's all about poor me, I didn't have eight kids but I wanted them, so I deserve the house they would have lived in. What kind of argument is that? I, for one, want to earn $1 million, but since I haven't been able to earn it, I'm still going to spend money on myself as if I had $1 million. She needs to take a class in logic.

      What a selfish woman she is. Has she once thought of the other women and their children? I wouldn't have the nerve to live in a five-bedroom house if I had no children in my house, which is what she'll have in another year. It's that same entitlement attitude that gets people into credit card debt. They want what others have because in their opinion, they deserve it, even though it makes no sense and is a financial burden.

      And I thought the same thing about her taking a four-bedroom house, which is too big, too, but at least she could turn one of the rooms into her "hobby room."

      And, Meri has time to entertain because she isn't spending her free time picking up Legos or wiping bottoms or reading bedtime stories, in other words, doing the things the other mothers have to do.

  5. Ok seriously.....I am not sure who is a bigger idiot....me or all these fools in this family......soooooooooo disgusted with them and ME for watching. UGH!!!! Kodouche in his suit.....CLASSIC!! Meri is a selfish bitch!! Surprisingly the smartest people in this whole mess are the kids!! RUN AWAY FAST!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Seriously cannot wait for the review on this show. So much to comment on. Like Janelle and her passiveness on "I thought Kody would convey to the other wives" with the graduation time. I was like, "Yay Janelle!" "He's your son, not all of theirs." Kody should've known more about the time than he did and she's right, he should've conveyed it better. And could Kody have been more obvious in his caring more about Robyn showing up than his own son graduating? And Meri, the "historian" of the family forgetting the camera? What's up with that? And Kody didn't even interact with Christine at all in this show. And seriously, so what if Christine lets Aspyn miss a few days, the girl is still making good grades. Meri wants to look like the superior mom with her one child.

    1. While I have too many comments about this episode to even mention them all, I just have to say that personally I feel like having another baby is one of those things that either you know you want or you know you don't. If the answer is not an immediate 100 percent yes, than it's a no. You either want it or you don't and if you can't say for sure that you want another baby, than you don't "try IVF and see what happens". And Kody saying that he WILL have more children???? How about you have more children when you can afford it. Which would thankfully be never. Anyone who goes from a debt consolidators office to an IVF appointment has more issues than I can even fathom.

      Delete
    2. Good lord they all seem to hate each other at this point and I felt bad for Jenelle, everyone trying to take credit for her son, lol

      Delete
    3. Bellarina I had the same exact thought about if you can't say yes right away, obviously you do not want to have another child so just say no! And if we know they didn't get the houses does this mean we will be having to watch the wishy-washy of her "deciding" for attention grabbing purposes for the rest of this show? Yawn fest! And the whole wet bar five bedroom nonsense. I was yelling at my tv JUST GO WITH OUT IT!

      Delete
    4. I too noticed Christine was pretty quiet and subdued on the couch session other than the stuff we already seen before. I do think Christine helped raise Janelle's kids and was probably a bigger influence in their lives than Kody. She was more present at least. She was their homeschool teacher at one point so I'm sure seeing him graduate made her proud since she has watched and helped him grow into a fine young man. I'm sure even Janelle would be okay with it.

      I was sick when Kody went looking for Robyn. I was like WTF are you doing?? This is your son's graduation and you need to be there when he walks down that aisle! He made it back in time but I could not believe he would risk missing it to go find out where Robyn is. For pete's sake Kody your first born child is graduating, can you put him FIRST for once instead of your new wife.

      Delete
  7. Must we deal with Meri's insecurities again? She needs a wet bar for entertaining, so she needs a 5th bedroom... meanwhile Janelle is eliminating a dining room and figuring out who can share rooms. Kody is offering IVF treatments, and putting money down when just last episode they were worried abut not getting mortgages. This family has no sense at all....
    Leading into segment two. Kody, Logan is your son, and you managed to get to the parent teacher conferences. Couldn't you figure out for yourself when the graduation was, where it was... and provide all 4 wifeys with maps? And, why was Janelle dealing with all the kids herself on the day your eldest child was graduating?
    Why did Robin only bring Sol to the ceremony? Where were the other 3 kids, you know, the ones that have to be first at everything?

    Logan is very smart. I doubt he has any intention of having more than 1 wife. Did you see that ****-eating grin when he said 'maybe more'.

    Meri, when your sister tells you that she can see you have moved on, that's a sign that you really don't want another baby. Just say so and move on.
    ,
    And, Kody, never tell a Mom that she has to share accolades with what would otherwise be termed the Nanny.

    1. Meri clearly doesn't want another baby. I think she wants the drama and doesn't want to tell Kody no cause she will get less attention than she is now with her undecided.

    2. I was yelling at my tv when she was whining about how she has to have the wet bar because she is such the entertainer. You don't need the darn thing! Has anyone noticed how it appears to be RIGHT NEXT to the kitchen?! You can't use the kitchen sink like everyone else? And since we know they did not get the houses, are we going to have to put up with her wishy-washy I need attention so I am going to go back and forth about having a child for the run of this show?She obviously does not want the kid since she can't say it right away and as you mentioned, mythought, her own sister sees she has moved on so obviously, you don't want another kid of your own, move on!

    3. Hell even Meri's lil sister can see that she's in a different phase of her life than when she was so desperate 5 yrs ago. All Meri talks about is ENTERTAINING factor. Well it's kinda of hard to entertain when ur pregnant or got a lil baby....smh So she has clearly made up her mind, but she's just being selfish & stringing everyone along.

  9. Aspen and Christine, attending school is not optional. Most parents agonize over the idea of taking their children out of school for one day for a family vacation... you two think skipping PE on what was described as several times is a lark. For all my dislike of Meri, she was right.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Meri just took an opportunity to make Christine look bad. The teacher explained she was very responsible and brought her grade back up. They're teens and not everything is going to go perfect. Christine really is a single mom doing the best she can with six kids compared to Meri's one.

      Delete
    2. Then that teacher felt sorry for her. When a student skips school, standard practice is that there is no make-up for those classes. They get a zero, and are lucky to even pass the course. This teacher went out of her way to give her chances to make it up. Also, somewhere someone forgot to report this to a truant officer.

      Delete
    3. Are there still truant officers these days??

      Delete
    4. I have kids in public high school. All of the kids get 10 days a semester at their school they can miss before a truancy report is filed. Also, at my kids high school, the kids are allowed to make up the work, but get half credit. They also are allowed to do extra credit assignments.

      Delete
    5. I work for the Clark County School District. Students get 3 days for each day they miss to make up work...at full credit. If they miss PE they have to read a sports article and turn in a summary to make up for the missed day. An attendance officer is only brought in for habitual truancy.

      Delete
    6. Not to be mean or anything, but PE is a class that Aspyn should've been participating in anyways to get some sort of physical activity 5 days a week.

      Delete
    7. Was she actually skipping it or did Christine excuse the absence. That is what makes the difference where I am at. If it is excused they had 3 days to make up the work at full credit. If it is unexecused they do not. Once 3 unexecused absences occur in any class they get put on a credit probation. If they keep having unexecused absences after that it escalates in severity from losing credits to having a truancy officer called.

      However; if Christine called her in it would have to get pretty obsessive before anything is done about it.

      I wonder if Kody was even aware it was happening or that Christine had been calling her in.

      Delete
  10. 4 big houses when most are losing there homes. Also Meri make up your mind. There are plenty of kids and if it wasn't for the show I doubt they could afford the houses, more kids etc. I liked this show until they started becoming flashy. What's wrong with 2 houses and 2 wives in each. They made it work before they moved. And I agree although Meri hasn't been blessed with more children why waste extra money on a five bedroom home.

  11. I am really bothered that Kody wasn't where his SON was on the night before and the morning of his graduation. This is a rite of passage! Just because it's "Robyn's night" means nothing. It was his son's night, his son's morning, his son's day. It made me furious to watch Janelle busting her ass to iron and get everyone up and ready to make it to his graduation and meanwhile, Kody is gallivanting with Robyn! *kicks rocks*

    1. I agree. Kody makes such a HUGE deal about how he IS going to have other children come hell or high water. But he can't even show the kids he has the proper amount of attention. At this point he is more a sperm donor than a father, I mean really..arrgghh I am just so aggravated with the whole bunch!!

      Delete
    2. Ya that was pretty lame of Kody to be more concerned about Robyn not being there, until Meri told him that he should be more concerned w/ his son graduating then with other things...Lol I loved that part!

      Delete
    3. In fact both Janelle and Kody could have had things ironed days in advance since neither of them work!

      Delete
    4. I agree, she could have used the extra help on that morning. Even if he did stay with Robyn he could have left early and went to Janelle's to help everyone get ready and spend a moment with son on his graduation day. It's sad Meri had to point out to him that it was about Logan. Okay she may be selfish with the houses but at least in this case she used common sense and was looking out for Logan.

    2. The highlight of this episode for me was when they flashed back pictures of the kids and talked to the children as the parents were going to conferences. Like this is the first time I heard Aspyn say she planned on living a plural lifestyle. This is the first time I heard anything about Mykeltie's desiree to become a fashion designer or that Hunter wants to be in some sort of athelic profession. That's the kind of things I want to know, the kids future plans, hopes and dreams. It's far better than the BS we get from the adults.

  17. SO MERI IS DRAGGING OUT THE IVF EVEN LONGER???? Damn, she's trying to get as much mileage as she can but apparently can't see she's even ticking off Kodouche. Meri-a screaming newborn would interfere with entertaining at your wet bar that is two steps from the open kitchen. Trust me, those two steps won't kill you and would be good for you. Everyone is sick of your infertility drama. Why don't you worry about the child you already have and count your blessings.

    Kodouche admitting he's having more kids(plural.). Gag, vomit. Can you pay for or even give any attention to the ones you have now? You can't even pay attention to your oldest graduating and even distract the people who actually care about him.

    1. I totally agree about the stupid wet bar being 2 steps away from the kitchen. It's IN the kitchen! Soooooo stupid. She is really using this "poor infertile me" act to manipulate the rest of them and to try to hide how selfish she is. I don't think she cares about anything but herself. If she cared about the whole family, she would not be insisting on this huge house, she would in fact, be demanding on a smaller one for the good of the family. It's despicable, in my opinion.

      Delete
    2. He keeps saying that he is having more children, not up for discussion he is having them period. At this point I would think Robin is the only one available unless he is looking for another wife. But I mean Robin is getting up and age and Sol caused enough family drama. I just don't see Christine or Jannell getting pregnant and Meri just wants to get sauced at the wet bar.

      It will be interesting

  18. I have so much more respect for the Darger family. I think they are even going to think the Brown's are crazy. If the point is to be a big family, well families live together not in 4 separate homes that are way out of their budget.

    Replies
    1. I completely agree. The Darger's are golden compared to the Browns. Based on the preview for next week's episode, I really appreciate that Joe Darger is openly affectionate towards ALL of his wives, in comparison to Kody, who glares at Christine and completely ignores Janelle.

      I am also disappointed that Kody wants more children. The thought of this man having...and ignoring more children angers me.

    2. Everyone initially thought the Browns were "golden" too. I'm sure the crowd will turn on the Dargers as well. Their dirt and dysfunction just hasn't been broadcast yet. ;')

    3. Well I guess we will wait and see with the Dargers. At least his wives work (as does he). I should probably read their book before they their series airs. Reading the Sisterwives book shed a lot of light on the subject for me so far. Kody never had a real loving relationship with Janelle so it's no suprise that he doesn't bother to look at her now. Christine was great until she had to become responsible and you know raise her kids (maybe Kody should try being a dad full time and see how much time/energy he has left to be the fun guy)

      Delete
  19. Again, Kody willing to miss Logan's graduation to help poor Robyn. Good for Janellefor being stone cold. Meri doesn't want another child. Meri wants the drama & woe is me status. Meri has to have Kody feel sorry for her!

    1. Agreed. Go, Janelle! She looks like she is about to lose it and smack Meri in her conniving face. I think Janelle is great. For that matter, Christine is too. Neither one of them buy into Meri's crap, you can see it in their eyes when Meri starts her woe-is-me routine. And it does look like Kody seems to be tiring of it as well. I'd really like to see someone tell her to put a sock in it and shut up!

      Delete
    2. I do have to give Meri credit, though, for telling Kody to stop worrying about Robyn and pay attention to Logan. For a moment there, I saw a glimpse of the sister wives Meri, Janelle, and Christine appeared to be when the show began.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, Mother Meri told Kody to stop focusing on Robyn BUT he still went looking for her and wouldn't settle down about it. I'm sure Meri was royally pissed about that. As well as the other wives and all the teens. I don't think there's any love lost for Sobbin'. Everybody got her number (except Grody) long time ago.

      Delete
    4. Meri had got to be the dumbest person alive. She can pretend Robyn is her bestie all she obviously resents that relationship. You know Meri said something along the lines of not having more children makes her unvalidated yet in past clips Robyn says Sol is what validated her as a member of the family. Puke-Really Robyn, having Sol was your contribution to the family? Like they need another mouth to feed

Meri and the 5 bed room wet bar + pantry is justified because she wants all the other SW kids to come live there when they have had enough of their own mom? LMAO. I thought 2 of the little girls (1 from Christine and 1 from Robyn's moved in last year. The whole show was about the remodelling of the room. Oh I forgot that was just another TLC Koodie Brown scam.

  26. I am honestly unsure who I dislike most.....Meri, Robin or Kody....can't stand any of them! They are all so egotistical!! I would so much rather be watching a show based on Christine and Janelle and their awesome kids fleeing this trainwreck and starting over!! That would be good TV!! Right now all this show does is continually stroke those 3 egomaniacs!!

  27. I thought they were in debt and here they are building homes and more kids? What the heck is wrong with this society? Kody says he will start out with one wife then possibly more? I think they are teaching their children a TERRIBLE lifestyle!

  28. Why did Robyn not only have to attend the high schooler's Parent/Teacher night but also have to sit in the front row seats and make all the comments? Because she's ALWAYS obnoxious is why.

    These people are soooooo FULL of themselves and their "impressive" lifestyle they think the teachers are just eating up. Their comments and take on it all were so self-centered and juvenile. They will never grow up and quit being so needy for attention and validation. Sad but obnoxious at the same time. They're just so unlikable as the "better than everyone" religious mindset.

  29. Why does it seem like every time they are talking about the older kids Robyn always has to put her 2 cents in? It's annoying.Maybe Meri should have not waited so long to try for a baby and no offence to anyone who has had a miscarriage but my sister has had like 20 miscarriages and has moved on by taking care and loving the two kids she has.It's hard yes but love the kids that are there that need the love.

It's so hilarious about all their micromanaging of the home details dilemma and "when can we start building?" and "when can we move in?" and the builders are just thinking they're idiots when they answer - "well, when you can make some final decisions and let us know." DUH!!!! and it's laughable now to know that 5 months later (when they should be moving in them now) that they STILL haven't even started building any of them cause THEY CAN"T GET THEIR LOANS!!!!!!! dang that SMALL detail of MONEY they all overlooked when they were being distraught w/Meri and her wet bar/entertainment dilemma.

  32. Talking of Robin and her sister. I think I know how they are going to weave this into the story line. The family they meet with next week, the husband is married to 2 sisters. This fits perfectly into Kody's desire for more kids and explains Robin's sister being there.

  33. Wow!! Wow!! Wow!! This family get so many digs at each other and the camera records it and then they put it on the show. So I am thinking it is all staged...or they have absolutely no say in what gets put on this show.

    They are blaming VEGAS for their kids filthy mouths??? Really!! Maybe try a little discipline folks! My impression of the kids tonight...they look like they seem to be running the show at home.

    AND MERI: YES OR NO??? Cuz Kody is having more weather you do or don't! WHAT A PIG you are Kody Brown! Meri is so brainwashed that she is hanging on to what little worth she thinks she has with Kody if she doesn't have any more children. She is going to need meds.

    Why didn't Robyn's sister just watch Sol that day then Robyn could have just gone with the group in the first place?

    THESE WRITERS FOR THIS SHOW are not being consistent at all!! Someone needs to double check their past episodes and remember what they have said or have done. We the audience are WAY TOO SMART to pull some of this crap over our heads. How hard is it! WE NEED BETTER SCRIPTS!!

  34. It looks like Dargers are very aware of what a dysfunctional train wreck this family is. I loved how Darger said don't tell him to be ready to leave at 8 for something and then they don't leave til 10 cause he'll be pissed. He KNOWS they're ALWAYS late cause they're so disorganized and don't communicate clearly w/each other.

  36. I think Janelle has every right to feel the way she does. If I only had 1 child would do with less food, a smaller home, and look for work to buy my own clothes, food, and care for my 1 child.....

    1. I think Janelle is really the prettiest of all the wives (too bad she has a weight issue). Her kids seem to be the most grounded. Seems like she and Christine worked together for many years to raise those kids. Christine has some beautiful girls. Kody appears insensitive to Janelle, who seems like the smarter one. How does she deal with it? I just can't figure it out...she will soon be getting even less of Kidy's attention when he takes Robin's isiter as his 5th wife.

  38. This show was a real test of bullsh*t tolerance.
    CJ, you may need a vacation before tackling this review.

    A woman who will be living *ALONE* in half a year when her daughter goes off to college...and she *must* have a **FIVE** bedroom house !!!!
    All because the builder/architect can't (or won't) redesign a new floor plan that includes a wet bar w/o the five bedrooms.

    Insane!! Absurd!! Wasteful!! Irresponsible!!!
    All this filmed drama....soap opera, stupid drama....

    Supposedly all because so Meri can have a small, extra sink and faucet....
    that apparently will be located just within a few yards of her huge kitchen...and sink????

    Can't imagine what these fools will do when TLC pulls the plug. The electric/AC monthly bills alone to cool those mega-houses will be gagging.
    And just wondering....will they be going back to the 2nd hand store, all budgety and "poor us" again to furnish their ultra new McMansions ???

    Found Sobbin Robbin's horror at missing Logan's walk a bit much. She has only known the kid for 2 years, but as usual, she must insert herself in all events.
    And why was there a camera on her as she was readying to leave and driving around...Why?....it was Logan's day.
    Why....guess because that is the way the script was written...!!

    Also found the school conferences complete, utter BS.
    They have what?....9 or 10, maybe more, kids in school by now. Yet they act like this is the *first* parent/teacher conference they have ever attended ???? BS....just BS !!!

    I could go on....but will happily wait for Cynical Jinx's scalpel.

    1. so agree that the scripts have been lame B.S. for a couple of seasons now at least. it was staged drama and to manipulate us all to get pissed at Kody for being more concerned about Robyn and be all "rah rah" for Janelle. The whole family had cameras there and Meri didn't need Robyn to bring hers that she forgot. It was all just stupid lame created drama. and yet, we watched and bitched about it. lol

      Delete
    2. Could someone please explain why Meri couldn't use one of four bedrooms in a smaller home as a hobby room (and in what past century does Meri live in that she refers to a craft room as a hobby room? Whatever you call it, it's essentially just a room for someone with way too much time on her hands.)?

      One last thing: Give up on the baby lust. You're much too old (and selfish) to start over. And when she says, "How weird would it be if it (in vitro) worked ... and would I be ready?" says it all: She doesn't want another baby. SO DROP IT!!! What's killing her is she doesn't want a baby, but she knows Kody will have more with Robyn (and the next wife, if there is one--and there likely will be one) and that makes her jealous, so she doesn't want to say no to his face.

  39. Well now I've seen the wet bar and all I can think is - That's IT? All that drama and fighting and hatred over THAT?! Seriously?

    I liked the commercial for next week where the Darger sisters suggested they live together and share a kitchen. I thought their heads were going to explode when Kody said his wives thought that was abusive.

    1. Yes, why are they not building a 4 apartment home? Like their 3 apartment one in Utah? They could for sure get the financing easier for one really large home verses 4 homes. And the wives should be able to live in these with just one kitchen. Think how this would cut costs to have one good size kitchen! It is crazy. I suspect they get separate homes because then they are not actually living as polygamists. They are just living separately and have a visitor in the night once or twice a week. LOL... he is soooo nasty! Personally how do they sleep with him knowing he sleeps with Meri and Robyn??? YUCKY!!!

      Delete
    2. Kody tweeted that the reason they were going for 4 houses instead of one was because of permits and resale value.

      The permits I can understand (sort of) but resale value? For a man who normally doesn't plan further than knowing who's house to drive to that night, resale should be the least of his concerns!

    Watching Meri, an unemployed 45 year old woman with one child, talk about how much she NEEDS to have this wet bar for all the entertaining that she LOVES to do. Where does she get the cash not only for a mortgage on a huge house, but all of the utility bills (A/C in summer in Vegas?), plus every thing else an adult needs to live on, plus, helping her only child go to college, plus planning for her "retirement" coming in just 20 years.

  51. Kody says "the accolades that Janelle would receive as a mother are shared with the other mothers." I can't tell you how disrespectful I thought this statement was to Janelle. And he also said Christine "raised" Logan because Janelle was working. Yeah, someone in that family had to work. Geez. Seriously could smack that Kody now. Janelle and Christine need to leave.

Meri immediately said in a very brash tone, "Janelle, you're not the only one that's going to be sad. He's ALL of our son's too!" The look on Janelle's face was so hurt and just depressingly sad. Meri's such a bitch. She doesn't have it in her to respond in an empathetic way to the ACTUAL MOTHER who carried, birthed and raised Logan. God Forbid there would have been HELL to pay if Janelle made that same remark to Meri about her precious Mariah!!

  62. I have been a fan of this show for the first two seasons but this season I watched and then read the comments and review on here and instantly realized what everyone is saying! This season is really annoying me and Robyn is really annoying me as well. Personally last season I was on Meri's side about not having kids and how unfair it was for her not to get a bigger house...but we are in tight times ourselves and I have realized that we have to cut back and cut out things---not sure why the Brown's are not like that. Having a "wet bar" may be neat and nice, but come on! Craft room and blah blah blah---what I do is combine! I have a man cave/office/library in a 250 sq foot room! Boo hoo...I love my house! All reality shows are staged to some extent--I get that, but this seems boring and over the top! I was interested in things prior to the move to Vegas but it seems like they are just grabbing for things to make it interesting. I will still try to watch with somewhat of an open mind but my eyes have been opened! If it is true Robyn's sister watching her kids while she "works" for the website then she is totally lazy because the website hasn't changed in 5 months and neither has the designs!!! They are the same as they were at the end of last season and I expected something new! None of it is anything I want to buy. Seems to me TLC is funding them because they went from a modest house were they were happy together--then adding a 4th wife (probably for show and now Robyn is getting everything she wants oh what a change she has made, single mom with bills and creditors at her back and now big house, nice cars and not having to work) I respected them more in Utah. I am calling this now but I see them going the way as "Jon and Kate plus 8" as soon as things got bigger and staged the relationship broke down. I am incredibly sad for the kids that their parents divorced...so I hope these people are getting into a mess here!

I thought it was pretty lame that Kody texted Janelle and then, instead of rolling over and relaying the message of what time to show up to Robyn, he added insult to injury and had Robyn call to try and secure the plans. Was he trying to make Janelle feel inept? It wasn't enough for him to berate her for not making the plans, but he had to send Robyn off to call her when he was with Robyn at her home?

Equal would obviously mean she has a much smaller home than her sister wives who have FIVE times as many children.

SHE DOES NOT WANT A BABY. SHE DOES NOT WANT TO SHARE YOU. it's as simple as that.

  68. Why did Kody say that his wives think that sharing a kitchen is "abusive?" Did they have four kitchens in their Utah home?

    1. Yes, the Lehi house is actually three full apartments, and Robyn lived in a rental duplex a few blocks away.

  69. This family can kiss my ass!! and they very well should as I've been supporting their illegal and ridiculous lifestyle. Maybe not now but as soon as this show ends, I'm sure I will be again!

  71. Thinking about the Dargers climbing aboard the TLC train...
    Do you think yet another show about Plyg-life will fly????

    I am not so sure the Dargers will have more than a season or two at most. They won't/can't get the "wow" factor that SW's got initially. No one watching SW will be shocked or wowed at another Plyg family.
    Sure, the Dargers can get some mileage out of showing all their obvious differences from KodyWorld, but after that, then what ??
    It really will be the same ol, same ol.

    Man wants multiple-bed partners, women comply, women have pregnancy after pregnancy, women must deal with jealousy and stress, family is large. ????? Anything else ???

    In fact, the Darger set-up may have an ick factor that KodyWorld eliminated with their LV move. Creepy to think that the harem master only has to go down the hall or *even to the next room* to bed-hop !~!
    Can't imagine how any woman could get used to that, knowing your man is in that close proximity having sex with your sister, or your cousin !!!
    But I guess they do... Any thoughts ???

    1. I'm sorry, him being married to sisters just sickens my stomach. I can't handle watching that family. And with people are posting that Kody may be looking at Robyn's sister as number 5, this turns my stomach as well. Sharing your husband with another woman is just gross, but it being your sister really bothers me. And that Darger man, just having to go down the hall, eeeewwww! I can't watch the Dargers. I really can't.

  72. Kody is so stuck on himself it is sick to watch, Meri has gotten more rude as time has passed, and I agree with the others that she is playing off her inability to have children, I feel TERRIBLE for Janelle I honestly feel that she is being USED!!! Cody said in one show that he wasnt attracted to her at all I would have left him then, all they want her for is for her money and for her to manage everything for them! Robin just makes me sick period she is a joke Cody is so head over heels for her that he cant seem to notice anyone else anymore, I could have smacked him in the face tonight when he said to Meri, "Im going to have more kids" pretty much whether they came from her or not. He is a PIG , He gets uglier and uglier to me! I use to like to watch the show , Im not so sure I will keep up with it this season I get to frustrated!

  73. So they showed the actual wet bar - which includes a built in wine rack! It's not even a very impressive wet bar.
    What does she need a wine rack for???

  74. I honestly don't know how the other wives didn't get up off of that couch and walk out when Meri was trying to pathetically justify her need for a wet bar, a craft room and 43 bedrooms. I also don't think I have heard the phrase "wet bar" more in my entire life than I have in about 5 episodes of this ridiculous show.

    What person in their right mind would seriously considering adding THOUSANDS of more dollars to a mortgage, essentially taking money away for your supposedly beloved bonus children to have a freaking extra sink just steps away from your kitchen?? If she is actually agonizing and losing sleep over an extra sink, then it is no wonder she can't make a decision about having another baby. She is clearly off her rocker.

    Meri has to be the only person in history to have experienced so much angst over a tiny sink.

    1. I believe the other wives SILENCE spoke volumes, when Meri was trying to explain her "needs' to everyone. She wasn't getting any nods, reassurance or comfort from the 3 wives at all...I loved it.

  75. Stupid, STUPID.....JUST STUPID!!!!! Is it just me or does everyone else feel depressed and say to themselves "I'm not going to watch these STUPID people ruin their lives and their children's anymore. I seriously think Meri doesn't love Kody enough to have another child with him. She's totally conflicted about the dynamics with the other wives too.
    This is looking more like a train wreck heading down the tracks. This is only about them making money and I'll bet at least two of Kody's plural wives are plotting to leave him and go on their own after the show cancels. They'll have the funds to do so. But for me, I'm done watching, this show is too depressing the watching only makes me convinced that "plural marriage" is a total farce!!

  76. Mary is a selfish hypocrit. "I deserve a big house because its not my fault i cant have kids" kody ready and willing to do ivf and robyn offering to be a surrogate and she cant decide if she wants another baby????? I dont know how janelle puts up with any of them!

  77. Logan looks embarrassed to have so much attention on him. Plus they had that whole drama going on in the stands - the other people around them trying to watch/video their own kids going down the aisle must have been furious!!

  78. I am so confused over this surrogacy plan. Has Meri, Robyn or Kody even bothered to read the basics? Silly question, I know. I happen to be a fertility expert (not personally, professionally) and will tell you this:

    1) At 45, there is NOT a snowball's chance in hell Meri's eggs are viable for Robyn to carry. The risk of chromosomal abnormalities is insane. Not even octomom's doc would touch that one.
    2) Robyn is no spring chicken, either. She is not a very good candidate for donation and how would this not just be her baby that Meri gives birth to? What is the point of "a little part of you and part of kody" is that? Why not just give her Sol and save Meri the stretch marks? Truly, it is the same thing.
    Thanks for the blog! This (and sister wives')are my dirty secret;)

    1. Oh come on, I've known many women who've had kids in their 40's and I'm one of them. At 39 and 44, keeps you young! I'm mid 60's now. Now if all of Meri's early life she has been immersed in kids it makes sense that she doesn't want to keep it going. She wants 'me time'. She needs space figuratively and she's trying to manifest it physically with all the bedroom drama. Hardee har har!

  79. I was also totally depressed about the whole Logan's graduation segment. For all their talk of love being multiplied, not divided, yadda, yadda, a big day like this should be when they really shine. Isn't one of the benefits of their "lifestyle" that you have more family to support and celebrate you? Meanwhile, Kody couldn't be bothered to be at Janelle's house the day of his son's graduation, Robin couldn't even get there on time, Meri forgot the camera and somehow they all ended up miserable and mad at each other. The only person who seemed to be as excited as Janelle for Logan's big day was Christine. You could clearly see her affection for Logan. And if they had all just been together on vacation for a week and a half, how did no one know what was going on? I wanted to punch Kody in the face for saying that Janelle needed to get everyone up to speed. Newsflash, Kodester, Logan is your son too. You could also get some information and then share it with your other ladies.

  83. The second house my parents bought in 1976 had a wet bar. We NEVER used the sink ever. It was mostly a catch-all for odds and ends. And we did a good amount of entertaining! Dad always preferred to make drinks in the kitchen and kept the extra wine in the garage. Not only did the kitchen have a bigger sink but the fridge and dishwasher and more room to work. :-)

  84. I must say, Christine looked good in this episode. Her style is changing and looked really beautiful at the graduation ceremony. I hope her way of thinking has also changed.

  85. I have a hard time remembering they are Fundamentalist Mormons, what with all their greed and dreams of mansions and wet bars. What a friggin' joke!!

  86. I think Kody is pressuring Meri to choose because he wants to have another baby with Robyn and Meri is holding up the process. So hes like if its not Meri then onto plan b. I also dont like when the wives would get salty with each other it went to a commerical break...come on...tell us how you really feel, darn editing! Atleast we got to learn more about the teens.

  87. Kody said that Meri didn't have to give him her decision until they moved into the new homes. well . . . OBVIOUSLY, Meri's never going to have to give her answer!! lol

  88. Nevada is CRAZY insane with their truancy laws. I think once you have like 10 or 15 (not sure how it is broken down other than you get three warnings which one is after so many unexcused absences) than student and parents get busted. It can include fines and jail time (for parent). The mom's might want to look into that before allowing the kids (on tv) to skip school.

  90. I think that Meri's "hobby room" is code for her self tanning room. Can she get any more orange?

  91. I am glad Im not the only one who see's threw Meri's charade. She has been allowed to build her entire identity within the family, as the whinny, pitiful, baren wife. If she takes Robyn up on her offer, she looses her identity, and her manipilative leverage within the family. Take note that by the end of this show, the "baby decision" is now postpones convieniently until after they get the house's built and moved into. She does not deserve that house no matter which way you look at it. Her income has never warrented it, she only has one child who is moving out for college, and if she "loves" the rest of the family she profess's to, she would be offering this extra expense to their needs. Robyn had no intention of ever paying off that debt. That is going to be part of the bargin for handing her sister over to Kody on a silver platter. All of them recruit for their husbands. All 3 of these have admitted it and many other families have to. And there is no limites to whom they recruit, including daughters and nieces. For in their "faith" the ONLY way for a woman to go to heaven is threw the complete obedience and submition to their men. Kody's statement that his daughter can be their faith and not be a poligamist is not entierly true. Again, if her husband wants it, even if they are married 20 yrs and he promised he wouldn't, she has to submit to his desire. Period.

  92. You know what I want to know, what changed? I'm reading the stupid book (finally got it from the library) and she talked about how being in the Lehi house made everything so much better. How it was great that Kody could see each child every night and tuck them in. She said they chose to move to the Lehi house because having the families in different houses didn't make sense and how it was so much better that they are all together especially for the kids. Then when they move to LV is a one of the biggest advocates for individual housing. She likes having the choice of being involved or having her alone time. Just goes to show she doesn't live the idea of what they were selling on Season 1.

    2nd, I find reading the book Meri is dillusional is so many ways. She encouraged a relationship with Robyn when her marriage was at an "all time low" then she gets couples counselling with Robyn and Kody (sometimes together and sometimes seperate) yet she never bothered in all these years to do so with Janelle whom she seems to butt heads with the most. I wonder what she has against Janelle? I'm thinking it's because Janelle wants to be pratical and tries to curb Meri's spending. Yikes I don't know how Janelle has put up with her all these years.
