I Scour the Internet: The Oscar Night Edition 2/24/13

I just have to get something off my ample chest.

Not only have Meri and Robyn changed the photo on their Twitter avatar (guess it beats the egg I have), Robyn has changed her background color.

Now, I don't have a problem usually with backgrounds. Or colors. But Robyn's retina searing bright yellow (with a definite orangy tint)  is...well...a bit too much. Don't get me wrong, I love yellow. I painted my bathroom a beautiful light lemon yellow once. But this overly bright  orangy yellow  just screams a forced cheerfulness from Robyn.

Methinks the honeymoon is finally over. Well, at least we can be thankful she couldn't pipe "Don't Worry, Be Happy" as background music on her twitter page as well. Thank you Twitter !!

What could possibly be worrying our dear Robyn? Oh, I don't know...she does have that huge McMansion to pay for...maybe Kody said "Hell NO" when she asked for a maid. Or maybe she's finally realizing how much she's in, way over her head, both financially and plural marriagely (I made up a word, ya'll).

Let's ponder this situation while we peruse her recent tweets, shall we?

 

Interesting quote, isn't it? Being that Kody is not the best example of fatherhood, Robyn tweeting this quote is almost like she's passive aggressively shooting that proverbial warning shot across the bow of Kody's surferdude ship. So Kody, from the thoughts of your favorite wife Robyn, be aware that your actions speak louder than your words. And cut that damn hair and get a REAL JOB!


Okay, why can't she look in the yellow pages or on the internet like the rest of us mortals? I also wonder what kind of insurance Robyn has if she's asking her fans about a dentist. What if the dentist isn't in her network? Funny, did I miss Kim Kardashian tweeting her fans for a gynecologist? Or Heidi Montag tweeting her fans for a new, affordable plastic surgeon?

Weird...really weird.

On the 21st of February, Robyn tweeted this plaintive twat...



And then on the 22nd of February, she twatted...



Hmmm..... and then we have on the same day...


I should have said early morning, because the 2/22/13 twats were tweeted at 2:00AM and 4:00AM... Interesting that Robyn keeps such late hours. Sounds to me like Baby Sol ruined her 'night' with Kody, and then the next night (or morning), she had to consoled herself with #memories because Kody was warming someone else's bed and she was >>choke<<  lonely. No wonder she changed that twitter background - she must really be feeling blue!

Poor, poor Robyn. At least her mom and "dad" got together for a brief moment. I wonder if Robyn's mom had a honeymoon experience with dear old "dad". He's looking kind of happy in this picture...if you know what I mean.


In contrast, we have Janelle's twats, which just goes to show she may not be the most svelte of the wives, her children are the more accomplished.

Case in point, Janelle's tweet about Hunter. She even explains his nickname!

 

And let's not forget that Maddie was elected Student Body President!!!!


How about the fact that Janelle and Christine are now "employed"....



That leaves Meri and Kody...we know they are involved somewhat with that MLM green koolaid job...but that's kind of died down now. I mean really, when was the last time Meri tweeted about having a get together, or traveling to Utah for a meeting. But you have to read their facebook page to  see that they were recruiting inviting folks at a crafts show to benefit ovarian cancer on Saturday. A grateful fan thanked Meri for being "...such an approachable and pleasant lady". The fan was so impressed she wrote that she can't wait to bring all her friends to Meri's next open house.

Yowza...Let's hope MSWC did donate the SOMETHING(besides their presence) to the event, because otherwise it looks like they used it to benefit their family's wallet. Well, those McMansions weren't free ya know... but damn!

That's all for now, and remember that I Scour the Internet so you don't have to!!!



PS...Here's hoping that Denzel wins!!

  1. I am thankful I dont have twitter. I wouldn't be able to resist being snarky and rude to the Browns! Just a thought about RB's tweet about son following in footsteps of father, she could have been talking about husband # 1, not KB. Not that KB seems to be too much of an improvement on the type of father kids need compared to the last one. - From what we have been told that is. PS, I hope Denzel wins too, he was magnificent in Flight. :)

    1. I love Denzel too, but Daniel Day Lewis seemed like Lincoln in-the-flesh; don't think anyone had a chance against that magnificent portrayal! Hats off to Jennifer Lawrence (love her) and Argo (love Ben Afleck, now, didn't used to)! Those are the only three nominated-a-lot pictures I saw.

    2. At the risk of being permanently ostracized by my fellow SWB addicts, I have to admit that as of this past Sunday night, Seth MacFarlane has joined Adam Levine in my "short list" of guys I wouldn't say no to. :-)

  2. I don't think it's weird the Robyn asked for people's suggestions about a dentist. I do that all the time on Facebook - sometimes you get better reviews from people than if you were to do your own search on the internet.

    1. Recommendations from friends you trust is questionable. From people you don't know is riskier than searching on the internet. Like those women who went to that plastic surgeon on the advice of their friends and he was a quack who injected their faces with industrial grade silicon!

    2. Why wouldn't she simply ask a Sister Wife? I find this strange.

      Delete
    3. I ask the twitter world all kinds of questions like this. I do not find her asking for a Dentist on twitter weird at all. My friend just asked the twitter world about photographers, flowers, and musicians for her wedding. If you can't use the knowledge of everyone that follows you once and a while what are they there for?

      Delete
    4. Now do you think she was asking about a dentist for her own kids or for ALL 17 kids? Who knows, maybe she was hoping that a dentist or a wife of a dentist is a big fan and she might give them a deal on their services for a little TV time :) Way to work it Robyn!!

      Delete
    5. I think Robyn is hoping someone will donate their services for the "exposure" or maybe an episode of taking kids to the dentist like we saw on The Duggars show and Kate plus 8.

      Delete
    6. I think Just A Thought and Karen are right - Robyn is always working the system. I've been reading all the old posts (am now up to 11/28/11). Lots of people have changed their opinions of the original 3 'wives', but none of us at SWB EVER liked Rob-in!!

      Delete
    7. I agree with several posters above. I didn't think it was a strange tweet. I don't think she was asking random fans for input as much as people they know who are connected to them through twitter. Lots of people ask questions like that to their own social networks via Facebook and Twitter, I've done it myself on Facebook for recommendations for house repair kinds of things. I got some good referrals from people in my area.

      The sister wives do lots of things that are very worthy of snark, but IMHO this wasn't one of those things.

      Delete
    8. This was absolutely a ploy to get free/discount dental services. Robyn doesn't fool me.

      Delete
    9. I think because she is basically a public figure, she should not be tweeting things like this. I can understand doing this on a private Facebook page, where your friends are your friends...not the random public. This now tells people what part of town you live in, and possibly who your future dentist is when you inevitably tweet something stupid like, "Thank you so much, I will definitely be going to Dr. Toothforkids..."

      I think its normal for any of us to tweet things like this, but we are not celebrities.

      Delete
  3. What's Robyn doing on twitter at 2am? Weird. I saw that she also posted a video of the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders & U.S. Troops doing "Call me Maybe" ...It's a cute video, but how does that fit with their whole modesty thing? The cheerleaders were wearing bikinis.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm not convinced that Robin cares that much about the modesty issue. Before she married Kody she wore short sleeves. I think she just does it now to fit into the family. The Browns seem pretty worldly these days. I doubt bikinis really bother them at all anymore.

      Delete
    2. And remember that Robyn was wearing a bikini top during the Plyg-Cation. And of course who can forget Meri's cleavage reveal during the Mexico trip? *my eyes my eyes*

      I'm guessing it's less a modesty thing, and more of a "let's cover up the fat while looking like we're toeing the AUB dress code" thing.

      Delete
    3. LOL DJ!!! I had a Pheobe Buffet moment from "Friends" when you wrote that...lol. I actually don't think they are religious folks at all, that was plain to me when their kids rolled their eyes in one of the episodes when they were having a gathering. They just look so awkward when they are speaking about religion in front of their family.

      It's just a front to continue living their "Lifestyle"

    1. I've gotten so used to seeing pretty much everyone on the web using that word that it just doesn't register anymore. I'm desensitized. I also watch Kathy Griffen specials, and it's her fav shorthand for a tweet. When it registers, like now, I giggle. My inner 14 year old takes over. :P

    2. Please remind the poet Robert Browning...

      Then owls and bats
      Cowls and twats
      Monks and nuns in a cloister's moods
      Adjourn to the oak-stump pantry


      According to Wikipedia, the word's meaning can depend on how it is used.
      In this case, it appears Lourdes R-C has used it as a play on the word twit. And twat can also mean a fool, or an obnoxious or stupid person.

      Since we are supposed to be over the age of 18, I don't think any further discussion of the word is necessary. Thanks for your concern.

    4. LOL CJ...just to be on the safe side, I'll refrain from using TWATS at work, because I don't think most of my co-workers are up on their Browning. Of course remember, when I was born "gay" meant something altogether different than it does now. lol

    6. I learned the word twat from my 80-year old Southern Baptist grandmother, who never cursed a day in her life. I definitely don't think she saw it as an obscene word, just a funny one for parts down 'there'.

  7. I just found your blog and I think it's great.
    I have a question regarding the clothes (Meri, Robin, sometimes Christine): why do they always wear a longsleeved T-shirt (white/brown/pink/yellow etc) with a top that more often than not resembles a baby doll-nightie?
    They can't show their arms?
    Any thoughts?

    1. Welcome Carina!

      According to the Sister Wives, they dress that way for modesty. However, Meri and Robyn (who are the most vocal on modesty besides Christine) do seem to throw modesty out the window if they are near water for some reason (Meri in that cave in Mexico; Robyn on the beach during plyg-cation).

      Delete
    2. The reason for that is that they take of their special undies to swim, and seem to get carried away with the sense of freedom!

      Delete
    3. They never wear the special undies. Meri's shirtsleeves are always so tight and there have been many closeup shots of her shoulders/arms. You can see bra straps and skin through them (especially the tight white long-sleeved shirts), but no "garment."

      Delete
    4. Their suppose to wear their bras and underwear on top of their garments. The garment is worn next to the skin like a second skin. So what you see as skin under their clothes may be garment material.

      Delete
    5. ...nary a wrinkle...I have been looking very carefully... -prometheamoth

      Delete
    6. Just remember that the sleeves are long, so you won't see a line like you do for the modern LDS "garment," but one giveaway is that it has ties down the front which often gives a lumpy effect. Maybe that is the reason for the frilly baby dolls over the top of what they wear. Alternatively, they may have given up on wearing them, which would be a super-serious infraction of their "covenants" and would put them even more in the dog house with their leaders. Them continuing to wear all the long sleeved clothes still makes me think that they are wearing the undies though. Why else would they wear all those layers in the heat of Las Vegas, and miss out on the pretty clothes they could wear?

      Delete
    7. Explyg, they have absolutely lousy taste in clothes and jewelry. They're mising out on pretty clothes because they can't recognize them. Or a man that's worth a damn. Not being snippy with you, just letting my inner smarty out. :)

      Delete
    8. Having been raised LDS, I know garments when I see them, I don't see them on this family though. I live in Utah and have most of my life. I do not attend church and haven't for years. But I will tell you, they are not members of the LDS faith currently practiced around the world today commonly referred to as "mormons" rather a break off subsection who make their own religion. Mormon fundamentalists. I know polygamy was practiced within the Mormon religion years, and I mean years ago, it hasn't been a part of the religion for a very long time. They are not considered Mormon by the church and would be excommunicated for their lifestyle. Please don't get the impression that all Mormons believe or practice as the Brown's. Their family lifestyle, is not condoned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My wish for these women is that they will find self esteem and confidence and leave him on his butt! I have several friends I consider sisters, none of which I will share my husband with. I don't have time to watch the show so I kind of keep up on the show/goings on via this blog, thank you for taking the time to write it.

      No woman should ever believe she needs to share her man with someone else!

    3. Good point CB! Not only do Kody and Meri have a stylist, but she also does it at their house. U know that's an up charge. Also when Kody married Robyn, it was the first time the older girls had been to a salon. Maddie said it in the wedding episode. I wonder if Kody and Meri (and Mariah probably) had been going to get their hair done all along. If so, not cool. But maybe they weren't. I hope not.

    1. Maybe one of the episodes for the new season will be a "first" trip back to Utah to take the kids to their old dentist. You know, one that will give them free dental work in exchange for a few minutes on their "hit" TV show.

    2. Already posted on this but that would be a huge financial wallop for any dentist who decides to comp the 21 Browns dental services. Even just cleanings/x-rays - we're talking $2100 MINIMUM in fees that the dentist would be giving up. I have my doubts as to whether the family was going to the dentist regularly to begin with, unless of course the state of Utah was picking up the tab. Which I suspect they were.

      Delete
    3. Lol....I was totally Thinking the same thing D.J...2 yrs w/o cleanings..smh It's like they can spend lots of $$ on multiple trips to Disneyland & other vacations, & was willing to drop liada of cash for IVF for Meri even tho we have all agrede that would just be a total waste of $$, but can't take kids to the dentist??
      I after w/ those that say, Robyn is definitely trolling for free dentist services, but that doesnt necessarily mean she'll get them either.

      Delete
    4. I was wondering if she's looking for a dentist with especially kid-friendly chair-side skills for Day-on. The other kids may be okay with a regular dentist but his needs might be outside the purview of their regular (whatever their regular is) dentist. Just a thought.

      Delete
    5. Also as far as the comment of the prospect of a trip to Utah to see their old dentist (if any in fact exists) - don't know if it's the law in Utah or applies to dentists, but found out last year that in California if one moves out of state, your California doctor can no longer provide treatment or being your GP.

Is the one she had the honeymoon period with Robyn's bio dad or her step-dad? Who is the guy in this picture? Is she married to anyone currently? Robyn seems to talk out of both sides of her mouth when talking about her parents...sometimes she's the sad child of divorce and sometimes she's the child of happy polygamists. I'm so confused.

Any advertising benefit (and I don't think it would be much - I'd rather go by anonymous reviews in Yelp and first-hand word of mouth from people I actually KNOW when looking for a dentist) would be eaten up by the amount of $$$ it would cost to service that many people. Most dentists don't do the cleanings, X-Rays etc - they pay their assistants to do that stuff. I have a very hard time believing that the Browns get many kickbacks/perks.

    2. I seem to recall that the "dad" who was at her birth was a lot skinnier...but I could be wrong, haven't seen that ep in awhile. and I believe Robyn does have two dads - her birth father and her stepfather. and that her mom is divorced from both.

      Delete
    3. This was the same man who was present at Sol's birth...remember when Kody took Robyn to her appointment, it was his truck (with the cowboy hat on the dash) that Kody drove - with a very pregnant Robyn sitting ever so close to him.

      I think his name is Paul Sullivan and he lives in the Las Vegas area. DJ is correct that he is her step-father. He made his first appearance on the show when Kody, Meri and Robyn went looking for housing prior to the big move to Nevada. That's what started SWB readers to comment that it looked like Robyn had a lot to do with influencing Kody to make the move to Nevada because she had family there.

      I would imagine Sullivan was the 'father' present when she gave birth to her other 3 children, in the trailer, without a baby crib.

      Delete
    4. Well, looks like dear ol dad Sullivan is now a media star too.
      Keeping it in the famiy...so to speak..

      Delete
    5. This is Dad #2, which helps to explain the whole slew of names Robyn has gone by in the past. Her mother was first married to Robert Marck - so she was Robyn Marck then (unless her mother wasn't legal wife and so she could have had her mother's surname) Incidentally Robyn claimed that her "parents" had a fairytale relationship that was a perpetual "honeymoon." Since her mom got divorced from Robert Marck, I am assuming that she is talking about mom and Dad #2 shown in the picture above. She then went to being Robyn Sullivan. (Did Dad# 2 adopt her legally, or did she just change her name?) Then she married David Jessop (legally) so became Robyn Jessop. Unless she abandoned the name Jessop at the time of her divorce she is now legally Robyn Jessop, although she also goes by Brown. My question is, why hasn't she done the legal name change to Brown like the rest of the girlfriends? Incidentally she has two beautiful little girls - so sad to think of them being indoctrinated into this miserable lifestyle.

    6. Explyg,

    7. This is definitely the stepdad that was witnessing the King Solomon birth.

  21. Thanks so much for keeping us all updated on the Brown corporation, er I mean "family". My wife (and I only have one) always wonders why I know so much background info about them and I just tell her that y'all scour the internet so I don't have to, LOL.

    Maybe on the upcoming season we'll see an episode where Robyn is fretting about paying for a dentist... and then the scene will cut to Meri sobbing on her wet bar about how its not her fault that she only had one kid... and she wishes she had more so she'd need to find a dentist too.

    1. Yes, I'll admit I got hooked watching the trial. One thing that has urked me is the frequent commercials on CNN's HLN network (the coverage is a million times better than TruTv(formerly Court Tv). Sometimes they will only have 3 minutes of testimony before going to a 2 minute commerical break!

      Anyway, I found that a local news station is also carrying the live feed - I keep my tv on HLN with my pc on the local news live feed. It's amazing how much of the trial is being missed because of the commercials.

    2. Cj, Thank you, thank you.... :))
      The commercials were driving me crazy too. I have it on when I am working and just when it gets riveting, they do the breaks. I remember during the Casey Anthony trial, I finally watched it online uninterrupted during the TV commercials.

      She is unbelievably slippery. The prosecutor is doing his job but it is an up hill battle all the way. It's a miracle that her victim didn't kill *her.* She could drive anyone to violence.

      She is a true pathological liar...just like Casey Anthony. Sure hope the jury is better than CA's was.

    1. The most despicable part of this trial beyond the fact that she is a sociopath who brutally murdered that guy, is the defense's strategy to use domestic violence/abuse (self defense) as her defense. They really only had 2 options to try, mental illness or self defense. Her sociopath ego would never agree to mental illness, so they created the abuse story.
      What is despicable is that scores of women ARE abused every day, and for her lawyer and her to use this, it casts doubt on the credibility of *true* victims of domestic abuse !!!!
      I worked in the domestic violence world for many years...it is easy to see how they are trying to *create a story* to fit the profile of a battered woman.

    2. I've missed a lot of the trial, but the parts I've seen of the cross exam, YIKES! She totally fits the profile of a sociopath. Thinks she's smarter than everyone in the room. She's combative, parsing the prosecutor's sentences, with such an evil calm. The prosecutor has an odd approach to his questioning. I have to assume he's trying to bring out the real Jodi for the jurors. It's tedious to watch.

  31. Y for Wyoming here,
    A few things that are bothering me:
    1- Since Koduche attended the father daughter dance with Robyn and girls (big surprise there), did this mean Logan had to come back home to take Christine's daughters again this year?
    2- In regards to the whole father comment, Robyn if this tweet really was to Kody, why would you even want Sol or Day-un growing up to be like him, a grifter in desperate need of a haircut and valtrex.
    3- Robyn does seem a little blue with her tweets. My answer, stop drinking the green kool-aid and you will feel so much better. Also, I'm sorry your live in babysitter wasn't able to take care of King Sol and you actually had to get up with him, news flash... it is called being a mother.
    4- She probably tweets late at night while Koduche is busy rotating wives in hopes his phone will go off while the other sister wolves are providing services.
    5- Good for Janelle and Christine for attempting to be gainfully employed. Does anyone know if they are actual certified relators yet?

    1. I agree about Robyn. I don't understand why a mother of 4 would be uset that you have to get up at night with a baby/ toddler. Hasn't she done this before? I have little ones. As a SAHM I am the one who gets up with them so my hubby (the bread winner) can sleep. It is part of being a parent. Surely with Kody only there every fourth night she couldn't be expecting much help.

    5. I have always had a theory....that when Kody was peddling his show, TLC said "if you were going to put another wife in the mix, then we'd be interested" so thats how Robin really came about. If they offered it to both the Kodouches and the Dargers, I could see the Dargers saying no and the Browns saying yes. I always thought Robin came later but I rewatched season 1 and 2 and he was already courting Robin from the 1st episode. I really do think thats how they got this show and got another wife.

      I think if she keeps the weight off, she might see some sponsorships (like Weight Watchers) and/or book sale. My hope for her is that she keeps that money for "her" kids, not spread the wealth to stock Meri's wetbar

    3. Generally speaking, WW (and Jenny Craig) goes for bigger/more popular celebrities (and less controversial - JC learned its lesson when they hired Monica Lewinsky and got a pretty big backlash as a result). Janelle is a B grade reality show participant.

      In addition, both WW/JC want the spokesperson to have started their weight loss effort with them from the get-go - not have someone publicly lose a significant amount of weight on their own before jumping to their program. In fact you can't even WORK for WW unless you're an active member who has met your weight-loss goal and achieved lifetime membership by maintaining your ideal weight. They're very hard and fast on that.

      There are SO MANY people who lose weight each year who are trying to get endorsements - so many diet books - that Janelle's would more than likely get lost in the shuffle. Her story if/when she does get to goal would probably be more in line with a feature story in People Magazine, not a book. IMO

  36. Have not posted in a while. Missed you guys!

    Okay so this is off topic but I was just paying some bills and something came to mind. I live in Las Vegas and use to live in a 2400 sq ft home and in June/July/August our electric bill would be around $350-$550 a month! This was us being conservative with the thermostat too! I should add that we did have a pool so that added to the cost. So glad we have downsized (to 1900 sq ft) because I DO NOT miss those types of bills. I was thinking that if each wife has a 4300 sq ft home (this square footage is correct right?) than their individual electric bills in peak summer months would run close to about $800 each, maybe less because they don't have pools. Are they really going to be paying $3200 a month? Where on God's green earth are they going to find the money to pay for all the bills that they are about to encounter?

    3. Whatever happened to swamp coolers? My friend in AZ had one for her house 10 years ago and it was great.

      LOL...you must not live in the desert southwest! Swamp coolers (evaporative coolers) only cool when the humidity is very very low. During the monsoon season, which occurs during the hottest months of the year, swamp coolers are USELESS because of the high humidity. And those McMansions are way too big,( with lots of glass ) to be cooled efficiently by evap coolers.

      Some homes do 'piggy-back' evaporative coolers and central air conditioning units, but from what I've seen, newer homes only have a/c now.

      Why? Well, in the case of my BFF, they stopped using their evap cooler because the cost of maintaining it each year outweighed the benefits, plus it increased their water usage, which in a desert under drought conditions is not a good thing. My uncle's house had both evap and a/c and his summer electric bill was still over $400 (and this was 30 years ago, 4 bedroom home).

      I grew up with evap coolers, and I can tell you from experience that summers were insufferable. Once the monsoon season hits, the humidity was so high all you felt was sticky and hot! I remember my parents would just run the fan, but it was still oppressively hot.

      Delete
    4. Another thing is that many cities in the SW do not allow swamp coolers because of the amount of water they use. Where I live, we are in the 7th year of a drought and the city has had people really cut back on water usage.

      If you use too much water you get a fine added on to your water bill and if you get too many of those fines they begin to get extremely stiff. NO new homes are allowed to be built with swamp coolers here anymore and ALL new homes must have xeriscaping in the front yard, no grass.

    1. Since they have mortgages, they must have homeowners insurance.

      The state of Nevada, like the state of California, requires that all registered vehicles at least have minimum insurance coverage on them. Like California (and I'm sure most states by now), if you let your auto insurance lapse, the carrier is required to advise the DMV. With all those kids at driving age, even the minimum liability requirements is bound to be costly - even if their GPA is kept high, they still get dinged for being new drivers.

  40. If TLC films shows inside their homes, can't they write off those electric bills?

    1. I would bet that TLC (really F8F) has its own electric generators that can handle their portable/big equipment. I doubt they can write off 12 months of electric use for probably a couple months filming altogether. but i'd leave that to CPA Carol to speculate on :)

      Delete
    2. TLC uses cameras and sound equipment that is normally powered by battery pack - no electricity needed unless they install special florescent lights like they did in the Gosselin house a few years ago. TLC may reimburse them for on-location costs while filming, but I doubt that it's much.

      As for writing off the electric bills - they'd have to prove their homes were being used as a "set" which isn't that easy (similar to proving a home office where the standards are very strict). Since they don't film that much in the actual home, I doubt there would be much to write off anyway.

  41. I also follow the adult's tweets. Robyn's have been rather sad and lonely sounding. She always said how she signed up for the whole family package but I doubt she is getting that. She chose her 'side' when she paired off with Meri early on but Meri snookered her by pretending to really 1) want a baby and 2) acting like Sol would be hanging out at her house 'all the time'. I think Robyn really thought she had the support of her sisterwives when she entered into this mess. Now she has a huge McMansion (and all the accompanying bills), 4 kids to care for on her own and knows that she has 3 sisterwives right there in the cul-de-sac who aren't helping her. I give Christine and Janelle a break because their plates are very full, but Meri has no reason not to help out. Instead, Robyn is getting the same treatment that Janelle wrote about...she is left behind to take care of kids while Meri and Kody travel and have fun. Robyn has so much more in common with Janelle than she thinks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, the honeymoon has got to be over now. Her marriage must be at the point where Kody doesn't want to be present all the time especially with Sol no longer being a little baby. I think he is spending more and more time at Meri's house, and I wouldn't be surprised if Meri has made a special mancave for Kody to relax from all the chaos around him. If anything, it looks like Meri is enjoying being with the pixies, and leaving Robyn to fend for herself with Sol. So now Robyn turns to her mother and step-father to fill the void. Maybe Kody realizes this and that's why he has that protective stance in the picture where he is physically separating his family from the grandparents.

    2. I do feel a little bit sorry for Robyn. (I know colour me stupid!) Obviously not highly educated, bought up in a religion that puts your needs as a wife and as a woman last whilst expecting you to raise a multitude of kids, her life can not be a bed of roses. She must have to realise that Kody is like a child with a new toy, he'll play with it for awhile, then get bored, drop it and look for a new toy to play with. she might even be suffering from Post Natal Depression which is evil and a dark place to be, can you imagine how hard it would be to suffer from PND without the support of a loving family? - Yep, I feel for her in this situation right now.

  42. I just had a revelation!

    You know that Kody will add a new wife to the mix especially if the TLC suggests it. But the problem has always been where would the new wife live. Well my revelation is any new wives will live in the Lehi plig home that they still own! I wouldn't be surprised if this isnt the reason Robyn is so blue lately. Now that Kody is not so afraid of being arrested, his trips to Utah could be visits to the new wife/wives!

    1. Interesting concept. building those homes without first having the talk of if they were adding someone were bugging me even at the time. Robyn went from saying NO MORE to something to the effect she'd be ok with it (not exact words- and no she didn't say it like she meant it)
      In plyg world seems like a reasonable conversation to have before going 2 million in debt. Is anyone amazed they never paid off their Lehi house?

    2. Kody would be STUPID to add another wife just to keep TLC happy. Well, he HAS proven himself to be stupid anyway...but to add another wife along with her expenses (granted, he could find a wife who has her "own money" but REALLY now...what successful woman would really want to hitch her wagon to this tarnished "star" anyway?) in exchange for another season or two at best...the cost/benefit ratio just doesn't work.

      oh right. that just doesn't matter.

    3. Like a nice tee...Gray with black letters and red heart. Actually, as I read old blogs here, and go to recommended sites, this tee is all over the internet, usually with 15-25% off coupons. Advertised as "for fans of the sister wives tv show or the sister wives blog".

      I'm wearing it to a casual dinner with a skeptical friend tonight. Been trying to get her to read this blog for fun, and to learn horrendous facts about the Browns and/or polygamy. So far, she just laughs and tells me I'm nuts :(

  45. The whole TMI website seems strange to me. "Meet (Agent)" links are all "coming soon except Christine, Janelle & Mona- as well as "partners" link etc.
    The email contacts for agents...
    Preider at cox dot net?
    Tpower at cox dot net?
    I can just see Robyn saying those giggling, feigning embarassment, then apologizing. They sound like bad porn names.
    & the *testimonials*? Wth?!
    I much prefer the glamor shots of Christine and Janelle to the spaghetti strapped "professional", but I have to think Christine could have found a better pic or at least not shared a background with Janelle. Do they have to share EVERYTHING? Really?!

    1. And the "mysisterwifes" email address - are they literate? It should be mysisterwives (plural) or mysisterwife's if it has an appendage like mysisterwife's closet

    2. Wow! Overkill on the fake lashes, Janelle!

    3. I just glanced at it for a couple of minutes, but the TMI site struck me as unprofessional. The owner and president don't even have pictures of themselves. And one of the few agents with pictures, is wearing a spaghetti strap cami in her picture.

    4. I'm with Anon 11:37. The email address is a horrible grammar mistake. I'm not really about being the Grammar Police when it's something informal, but this is professional and business related. That spelling makes them look unprofessional and uneducated.

      the truth in this case is self-evident. They ARE unprofessional and uneducated. and yes, I'm including Janelle in my assessment since *she* allowed this ginormous typo to occur.

    6. If they were really serious, they wouldn't mention sister wives at all in their email and would've skipped the cheesy glamour shots. I like janelle and Christine, but come on.

    7. I agree with Anon 3:32. They should of used a proffesional email and left the sister wives part completely out of it. They want to be taken seriously, however they can't seperate themselves from reality TV and how the world sees them and business professionals. As everyone has been able to see by now, TMI looks like a joke. Clearly, Mona sold out and just doesn't care. Spaghetti strap girl and the others need to have a buiness appropriate headshot done up. That sites a damn side show!
      However, I do have to ask....isn't their "jool-ery" site spelled My Sister Wife's Closet? I'm not trying to defend them, they're all blatantly stupid. Its just that I originally noticed this when they started their business and thought it was spelled that way because TLC owned the name "Sister Wives" so they had to come up with alternative spelling. There probably old emails linked to their website. Whatever reason, they really should have created new ones.

    8. Doesn't this boil down to the fact Mona needed some kind of gimmick to get people buying houses from her and she was lucky enough to have the sister wives fall into her lap? She's a business woman in a business that was in a severe slump. She's taking on the Christine and Janelle because she thinks they will draw in people to buy a house. Her website is no worse than a lot of others out on the internet. What she will find out though is that the type of people the sister wives attract are not the kind who have almost half a million dollars to spend on one house. And I don't think many polygamists would be attracted by the sister wives as agents either.

  47. I just started reading Stolen Innocence by Elissa Wall. I'm only a few chapters in, and she's already mentioned the "keep sweet" concept several times. Females are indoctrinated starting in childhood, to "keep sweet" through the lifetime of oppression and emotional abuse they endure. Remember when that was Meri's advice to Christine, when Christine was (understandably) upset and depressed about Kody's treatment of her? So sad.

    1. I read that book. It was well written and very fascinating. Stolen Innocence was the first book I read after "Becoming Sister Wives". It only made me want to read more of them. And everytime I'm still baffled that this goes on in America...I remember that episode. I'm pretty sure it was after Meri broke her leg trying to ski with Kody. She was sitting on the bed with Christine with her leg casted saying to Christine to suck it up and keep sweet. Any one of us would have jumped on Meri's leg before walking out the door! Unfortunately, Christine is so hardwired to all of it that Meri's advice didn't seem to phase her. In fact, it almost looked like that was the answer she'd been looking for. It was so sad.

      Stolen Innocence was my 'gateway' book. I just finished Under the Banner of Heaven (on the recommendation of Sinister Drives). Oh, wow. I couldn't put it down. Full of history and some of it quite shocking, surprisingly given all I've learned here at SWB. Again, also a well-written book. Wife #19 is next. Sometimes it annoys me that I have to do other things when I could just spend endless days reading.
