Tweet Tweet Twidley Diddley Deet! Sep 11 -15 2013

We will continually add to this page, check back!! See a tweet that is hot, email me! Thanks to ALL that have sent tweets or other goodies, I appreciate each and every one of them.

Remember this tweet?


Then came a flurry.






Why, you ask, am I curious about this? Well, they probably are going to be there. I don't see them on the roster...yet....I bet soon...Click link to see celebrity  listings.



(Thanks C!)

(Thanks to Funky Town - our resident Twitter Clipper)

Meri decided against Robyn as a surrogate over a year ago? Hmmmm
Meri is running?
Don't be polygamist then Mykelti, please! I like this tweet a lot :-)
Who needs to forgive you Meri?

Another Plug...Anyone in LV care to report?


Yes they are Janelle! 






And the Gina Wilson Love Fest grows....Had this blind item rumour this summer that a woman had quit her job for awhile to "live" with the Browns. Never heard anything else. Let's hope Gina is just plugging her jewlery, and hoping for spot #5!












But whose back does Kody have? BTW, Kody please change that Twitter
pic!

Did we grab this this one? Don't think so...
 


 Joe, somehow we think you are a tad jealous...



Here someone asks Kody what happened to being the best man you can be?
Blaming editing maybe?
Toaster to set Kody's bag on fire?
Why would Robyn be waiting if the decision not to rent-a-womb was taken off the table a year ago?

When I saw this, I thought Mariah would like it. Maybe some of you will too!


Mykelti is just a super sweetheart!


Do you think Kody thinks this is not modest? Only her legs are showing. Dang that Hunter is cute!
I agree babe. the dorm was not a happy place for me.


Awww...  





Have fun kids! Football season is the best!





Kody Watched


Here you go, with times all LV folks!

Just what we need, Kody imitating this dad!
No words.......
I wonder if any of the Browns took part this year? I hope so.
Dateline show tweet:
Great reminder, SW is an hour earlier this week to make way for the Williams family in My 5 Wives.
Seems like she found a good roommate! Glad for Aspyn!

Silverton advertising Brown's presence:
Another by Silverton regarding the Browns:
And more.......
Awwww
SLC Tribune article on My 5 Wives:
Good choice Aspyn, good luck making your dream come true!
Aspyn enjoying dorm life and thinking of joining a sorority? Panhellenic preview is to give an idea of life in a sorority per Bing, Google, etc.

I'm not shocked.

    1. Exactly!! When I showed my hubby that tweet, he just shook his head, calling Kody a stupid ass!
      I just keep wondering Isn't that supposed to be My SISTER WIFE's Closet that should be designed, inspired, & ran by the sister wives? & not that pathetic lame ass man child they call "husband". I'm sorry but Meri is the only one who can officially & legally claim him as her husband. Nope I'm not a big Meri fan either, although I used to be in the beginning. But now she just irks me as do the rest of the Brown Klown adults!!

  2. Poor Christine and the rest of the Brown Family. If Christine cooks for her and her daughters' gluten free needs, there will be no more mock tapioca.

    1. Maybe that's why it is 'mock' tapioca?

    2. Real tapioca is gluten free. Mock tapioca is cream of wheat--a load of gluten. Of course, theres always cream of rice. They could call it mock cream of wheat. . .

    3. Christine probably just grew up calling it "mock tapioca". I don't think she's trying to pull one over on anyone.

    4. "They could call it mock cream of wheat. . ."

      bwahahaha

    5. I think that mock tapioca sounds -delish-. Buttery sweet hot porridge? YUM!
      I do gluten free, but I still make all the treats the husband and kiddies love for them; I mostly find alternatives for myself; there are now some good ones out there. I've been gluten free since about 2000. The condition has now become quite common. Sometimes I still dream about buttery croissants or petit pain chocolate or baklava or French bread. Some of the newest alternative are pretty good, but nothing REALLY compares to that spongy-gluten-protein texture. mmmmmmmmm.

    6. Bemused Bystander - this is a bit off topic, but not sure if you've seen this blog - http://glutenfreeonashoestring.com/ - she has some incredible GF baked goods recipes on there - as good as the real stuff.

      Anyway, back to the Brown fandamily - I hope some lovely poster on this thread will go to the meet and greet and post back!!! That would be awesome!!

      Delete
    7. Not sure how Christine can keep up the "child friendly" processed "food stuff" that she cooks and still be gluten free. Unless she does two separate meals.

      That could also be a reason that she always looks so miserable.

      Guess she has to learn how to make real tapioca.

  3. Okay sometimes, when reading this blog or watching their show, I think about the “Stand By Your Man” song….and then all of a sudden, for Christine and Janelle, “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her” (Mary Chapin Carpenter) pops in my head.
    I made some funny graphics for Pinterest if anyone is interested about Sister Wives. (:

    Replies
    1. Yes, I've noticed it. I think that's just so much a part of her new identity and she's just reinforcing that for herself; she and Kody being together as a couple is so much newer of an experience for her--and she seems to desperately want that feeling of security that comes from a stable relationship--which she is still working on creating.
      It comes across as a bit pathetic to the observer.

    2. Well krody thinks she is a bad cook. And lets face it her kookie can only keep him happy for a short time. But when ever I think of him having her koojie the song "college girls are easy" pops into my head but instead of college girls I plyggy wives lol

      Delete
    3. Also, someone recently posted on this blog all the various times the women are to abstain from "relations." Included in menopause, pregnancy, etc it said during lactation. And Robyn herself tweeted recently about still nursing sol. Maybe she's a whole lot smarter than we think, and is managing to keep kody out of her bed.

      I've read the blog for a while. Love it! Today is my first time to post.

      Delete
    4. Don't think for one minute that Kody and the Kodettes abide by the so-called "Law of Chastity" that proudtobeaprincess is describing. That's for hard liners in AUB -certainly not for the wishy washy Browns!

    5. but the browns seem to make up a lot of their own rules... so i doubt they follow that

      Delete
    6. I think that even though Robin is the NEW wife and we all know the excitement at the beginning of a relationship, that the fourth wife position is not necessarily the strongest.
      Remember Amy Tan's "The Joy Luck Club"? One of the young women's mother's mother had grown up in China as the first wife of a husband who had died young. When she was at temple to honor him, a rich guy basically took advantage of her and she "had" to become his fourth wife, to her shame and embarrassment. She told her young daughter of her true father; emphasized how she had been a first wife and not a mere concubine-in Chinese forth or four sounds like 'die'; so as she's getting emotionally unglued and says fourth wife, it sounds like "die" wife to the daughter.
      The Joy Luck Club recently came out on Blu-ray.

    8. Hey Mister Sister, Do you really believe that ol Krotchie can tell "the levels" in any of his wives including sobbin robyn? I think you are giving him too much credit. If there is an attraction of one of the wives over another I am sure it doesn't run any deeper than sexual.

      Delete
    9. I do. Kody is an intelligent man IQ wise, he's doing ok. It's the common sense, background, etc. that gets in his way. But yes, after a while, Robyn would bore him in my book.

      Delete
    10. Hey Anonymous 10:49 up there or anyone else who has the answer, to what are you referring when you ask about Kody telling "the levels" in any of his wives?

      Delete
    11. Bemused, they are referring to Mister Sister's post at 6:41 pm on 9/11 where she said:

  7. Had to laugh at the comment about the dog for Meri's necklace and how the crown suits her much better! Oh yeah, that crown suits the Queen Bee of the Sister Wives better than a dog. Every time she looks at it she probably thinks about that.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think Meri should have had the dog. Then she could always remember her dog Drake. I can see where she absolutely warrants having the crown in her mind because she is Queen of the family. Yet, Christine maybe should have had it because of the plyg royalty connection. Ah, maybe that is what Kody was talking about when he said there could be some jealousy issues with his designs.

      He is always blowing his own horn. Does he ever do anything with other men or is he comfortable in his Peter Pan world?

    2. Meri's symbol should have been a pit bull! My apologies to pit bull lovers

  10. "Toaster to set Kody's bag on fire? "

    You know, when I heard them talking about Kody's Bag, I had no idea what it would be.

    New fixation?
    Sleeping bag?
    Man Purse?
    New nickname for Meri?

    Then the whole scene of Robyn opening the fire pit box and fixing to put it together was just like the crib assembly episode. Is Robyn the family putter-together-er? And who starts a fire in the desert anyway? I was waiting for the house to go up in flames. That would have been just the ticket for family drama.

    As it was, the whole concept was just so much missed opportunity and boring.....

    4. I believe the "Kody's Bag" scene was contrived. I believe most of the show is contrived but this scene most definitely. I mean really? Robyn so conveniently had a brand spanking new fire pit? JUST for the burning of kody's bag ceremony? PLEASE!!! They didn't think of that. That was all the producers and I found it quite stupid. I wonder how much fluff is going to be a part of the new "My five wives" show after the first season? First seasons are always good. And than they always add the boring and put together fluff!

      Delete
    5. Symbolism be damned; there is no way I could bring myself to burn a perfectly good bag. And really, doesn't he still need it to carry stuff from house to house? I suppose he keeps a stash of hair products, khakis, and purple shirts at each house, but still...

    7. @Anon. 2:13pm

      I think he HAS to have a magick flute tucked away. How else could that man draw so many women to him? Ugh.

      It would be funny to have a flash mob show up at one of his LIV Kool-Aid meetings and all the women can approach him with a basket of cookies and lay them at his feet. Totally creepy. They would probably then get arrested. Assault with sugary sweets. Only a select few would know the real meaning behind the cookies...........

  18. 10 Questions I’d love honest answers to (but we will probably never get from them)

    1. Do you "get off" on fans fawning over you, getting your hair/make-up done for the show, making special appearances, getting freebie products, doing professional photo shoots, being recognized on the street? If so, how does that tie in with modesty and humility in your religion?

    2. Specifically why do you think you are any better than other FLDS/AUB families and want to be the poster family for polygamy?

    3. Will you favor your children who choose polygamy as adults over those who do not?

    4. Are the current wives in favor of the inevitable eventual addition of more wives beyond when Robyn is past her child-bearing years ?

    5. Do you worry about passing sexually transmitted diseases and germs in general among each other?

    6. How much $ money per month does it take to keep the compound (meaning the combination of everyone - all homes, feeding kids, clothing everyone, insurance, car upkeep, credit bills, college tuition etc…) going.

    7. Will any of you get conventional jobs again other than Janelle?

    8. What is Kody’s greatest deficit as a husband?

    9. How many more children do you want to have Kody? What would be your “ideal” family size?

    10. Do you regret putting your children on national TV? If so, why?

    Bonus question: What would it take for a wife to get kicked out of your family? What would she have to do?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am answering this as Kody would...(assuming Janelle, the mouthpiece, would be there to guide his responses).

      1. Part of doing my job is to be 'made up' and make apperances. I make these sacrifices so that my family can live without fear of prosecution or persecution. We value diversity in our family. We are not like Warren Jeffs - our wives are not restriced in what they can wear, they generally choose to be modest.

      2. We do not believe we are the best family, however, we are the family who made the sacrifice to be public in order to protect our family unit. We are excited about the other families that are showcased on other shows, we value the diversity we all bring to the table.

      3. Absolutely not. We want our children to make their own choices. We encourage diversity within our family.

      4. There are no plans right now for an additional wife. However, if led to take another wife, it would be a group decision. We would decide as a group if we wanted to add another wife.

      5. I will not answer that question, it is vulgar.

      6. We have several streams of income in our family. We all have jobs and are successful entreprenuers. We all work very hard, we each contribute. Our actual expenses vary from month to month, as do our incomes. We are self sufficient and while we do have finite resources, we are all working very hard.

      7. Since we are a public family, that limits our ability to have a conventional desk-type job. However, we have several streams of income and we all work very hard.

      8. Some see the fact that I don't control my wives and value diversity as a deficit. My wives see it as a positive.

      9. I would love to have more children and can have as many more children as I want to have. I can't give you an exact number but we believe in large families as a tenet of our faith.

      10. No regrets. We had to be the public face of plural marriage in order to save our family unit and avoid persecution and prosecution. Our kids are happy and well adjusted and love the diversity in Las Vegas.

      Bonus: any wife is free to leave at any time if she chooses. There is no 'forced' marriage, if a wife is unhappy she can leave. I am secretly hoping Christine will take off after the years of hints I have thrown her way, but she is free to stay or go as she wants.

    5. boston corgi - in their book, it is very clear that Kody chose Janelle without even really consulting Meri. Christine 'chose' Kody and he agreed to marry her despite her apparently revolting consumption of nachos. And Meri chose Robyn and I think Christine was totally caught off guard by that one. So...yeah the whole "we choose as a family" is a big load of garbage. It just sounds politically correct, or polygamously correct.

      Delete
    6. Ugh, so Meri's husband chose her brother's ex-wife as his second wife. Gee, wonder why Meri is so bitter?

      And I remember Christine saying that Kody had a "deer in the headlights" look at their wedding--like he really didn't want to be there.

      Yes, the polygamous lifestyle makes us all better....

      Delete
    7. Anonymous, love the questions and CPA Carol, I love your answers. The bonus takes the cake, if poor Christine could hold a job and support her family she probably would think of leaving. I wonder if they ever threaten to leave or say everyone on SWB thinks you are such a douchebag to me. I bet there are some real snarky arguments that go on with Krody and with each other. Then they put on their perfect Mrs. Brown face for the cameras and smile away and pretend that life is all they hoped for.

      Delete
    8. You know, my memory of the how-Janelle-came-into-the-family story, from the book, was that JANELLE chose. Janelle was ready to go plural, saw what she liked in Kody and went after him. The story about acquiring Christine also indicates that Christine was already quite flirtatious and obvious about her attraction to Kody, and since the person they HAD been courting fell through (DODGED A BULLET THERE, MYSTERY GIRL), Kody and Meri followed through on what they knew to be Christine's interest.

      What I'm trying to say here is that the family keeps perpetrating this "Meri is in mergers and acquisitions" bullshirt, even though they tell a different story in their own words, in the book. So yeah, shenanigans. The only one it SEEMS to be true about is Robyn, but if that stealth minx didn't purposely position herself and ingratiate herself to Queen Bee in order to get her man, I'll eat my big furry hat.

      Delete
    9. There have been many many interviews, reports about this.
      Meri and Janelle WERE the best of friends, in fact, invited Janelle over to their home when she was at Kody's dad's farm. Janelle would not be talking to Kody if she had not stayed in contact with Meri after her divorce from Adam.
      THEN trouble brewed when Kody married her. I think Meri had plans for Kody to marry someone else VERY close to her but won't speculate. Her getting pregnant didn't help, nor did Meri seem to want to give up space, time, or the home with Janelle.(Imagine that!)
      She (Janelle) hadn't thought about plural before, then met Kody and thought, hey, this might be OK.
      So on it went....

  20. This was asked in a previous thread that's now closed but since it involves a tweet, I thought I'd answer it here.

    GossipMagee asked:
    Does anyone know where Maddie has been the last few episodes??? I miss that girl.


    She tweeted that she was in Washington when the Q&A episode was taped. IDK about other episodes - I'm guessing she was still there.

  21. A possible poll question...

    Which wife will be the first to throw in the towel?

    4. I doubt Meri would ever leave. She'll just check out emotionally as Janelle has already done. I don't think Meri would let Robyn get the satisfaction of her driving her out. Of course, once wife number 5 and beyond arrives on the scene just about anything could happen.

      My hope is Janelle is positioning herself to exit when the time is just right and to her own personal advantage - financially and otherwise.

      Poor Christine is locked in for the forseeable future with the little ones. I don't see her getting out unless Janelle goes first and helps her out - and then not for awhile.

      As for Robyn - she seems pretty smitten with the Kodster. I predict she'll be in a major catfight with wife number 5 once that marriage happens (which you just know it will knowing Kodouche)- especially if the next one has a body that rocks, a job, and/or money.

      Perhaps a preliminary first step to Janelle getting out would be for her to take her Mom and relocate together with the kids. Just a thought. Mom could watch kids and help out while Janelle pursues RE.

    5. No wife is leaving, no way; you can bet the farm on that. Robin has found her 'better'; I don't believe she would want the upheaval of a new relationship for her or her kids. Christine and Janelle have all those kids to consider; their situation might not be ideal but there is clearly some love there. Meri's first wife and can't bear more kids--stayin' PUT.
      If anything, one or more of the wives might emotionally withdraw from Kody or the other wives (if they haven't already), but they've got a bunch of kids to consider.

  22. There is so much fakeness going on between these adults--if these women are jealous of individually designed jewelry by Kody, I can only imagine how much truth he has to keep from them! He has secret comparisons (best in bed, worst bj, best hygiene, etc. ) that he has to keep to himself--his life is a lie.

    1. Jealousy is a human weakness that must be overcome. By overcoming our selfish weakness we become better people.

      Unless you are a man and then even thinking about your wife with another man is vulgar, can't be entertained as a thought, and totally pisses you off.

      Delete
    2. I don't think Kody has the emotional maturity to keep his thoughts to himself. Any man that would ask his wife "does it bother you that I brought another woman to this place" enjoys pitting one woman against the other. I suspect he keeps the wives in line by using jealousy to his advantage.

  24. Your answers were right on target CPA - My stab at what the REAL truth is...

    1. Do you "get off" on fans fawning over you etc.. Ya think? I love the spotlight on me and am desperate for it to stay on me. I hold a grand illusion that my fame will last forever and I will continue to reap great benefits from it from here on out. You either love us or hate us and those who love us will continue to feed our perpetually unsatiated thirst for more, more, more. We love easy money (whether from taxpayers or pyramid schemes). Keep buying our joolry... No refunds.

    2. Specifically why do you think you are any better than other fundies? Ya think? Most of those other men are gray and balding or shave their heads. Who can top what I've got going on. Plus there's my cool sports car and let's admit it - Robyn's is a hottie. Plus, I am perpetually shopping for more wives and like the company of women. It's a win win for other women and me...

    3. Will you favor your children who choose polygamy as adults over those who do not?
    Ya think? Doesn't matter. If I have enough of them, odds are a few will be plygs so I won't be embarassed.

    4. Are the current wives in favor of the inevitable eventual addition of more wives beyond when Robyn is past her child-bearing years ? Doesn't matter what they think. I can take as many wives as I want.

    5. Do you worry about passing sexually transmitted diseases and germs in general among each other? No, our purity is constantly renewing. People without health insurance shouldn't get sick. We pray away the germs.

    6. How much $ money per month does it take to keep the compound? I have no clue. Janelle keeps the books, such as they are. I just know we could always use more money. Buy our joooolry. No refunds.

    7. Will any of you get conventional jobs again other than Janelle? Not if we can help it.

    8. What is Kody’s greatest deficit as a husband? My greatest deficit is that I didn't take a lot more wives earlier and get my own reality show sooner.

    9. How many more children do you want to have Kody? What would be your “ideal” family size? As many as I damn well please.

    10. Do you regret putting your children on national TV? If so, why? Only because some episodes they do feature the wives and children, and really, shouldn't the show be just about me?

    Bonus question: What would it take for a wife to get kicked out of your family? What would she have to do?

  27. If Meri is running daily and she cooks at her own house and eats better food (her words over the seasons)... Then why is she the one gaining the most weight? Just a thought but... I am wondering if at her age she is gaining weight from menopause or pre-menopause thus making the whole baby issue mute and a dumb sorry line by producers?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have a theory that Meri has always been relatively heavy (past 10 years) and slimmed down for the premiere of the show. And of course she made a production about how much healthier she likes to eat than the other wives in the first season...but she eventually gained all the weight back and then some.

      She might be running daily, sprinting, doing laps in the pool, whatever, but she is no longer the healthy, thin wife. And it's killing her that Janelle is getting thinner.

      Personally I am not someone who judges by weight, I have struggled with excess weight my whole life. I dislike Meri for the way she has treated her sister wives and bonus kids....I don't care how skinny she might get someday, she is still the same person on the inside.

    1. I interpreted him as saying he'd observed their pda's (public displays of affection), ie: hugging, kissing, and longing gazes into each others eyes (gawwww, I made myself sick typing that! lol). All opposed to the interactions between Kody and the 3 other wives with more bickering and more of brother/sister relationships. Just my take on it anyway.

  29. Re the jewelry line thing - I first assumed it was just a non-serious tax write off thing, but they are harpiing on it so much, I wonder if Kody, Meri and Robin actually take it seriously. Janelle obviously knows better, and Christine is such a welfare princess she doesn't seem to think she needs to work to provide her brood with a roof, food, or a college education.

    But how can they be serious. Suppose they have 2M viewers. Say half of those (let's be kind) are actually "fans" as opposed to viewers there to laugh at the train wreck. Suppose half of these fans actually admire them enough to support them in some venture. Suppose half of these actually have disposable income they'd want to spend supporting characters on a TV show (??). Suppose some of these are jewelry buyers. Suppose some of these admire the iconic jewelry enough to shell out hard earned cash on it. Not too many.

    Even so, once you've bought a piece, how much jewelry do you need? It's not groceries. Once they buy one aren't they pretty much done? How is that supposed to pay off 3 McMansions (Janelle excused as going for her own income) and pay taxes, insurance, car, utilities, food, etc, not to mention college for kids.

    It makes no practical sense that these people are concentrating on such a ridiculous "income source". Not to mention it's so badly managed that based on what we hear, anyone who tried to purchase something would never try again.

    Are they really that dumb? Or do they not care? They must see how easily the TLC gravy train could end.

    Re Janelle -- I think she should hurry up and lose weight and turn her blog into a "Janelle's journey to weight loss" book, so she can cash in on that before TLC goes away. The rest of them don't seem to be doing much to make $$.

    1. Of course your analysis of the potential market for their jewelry is spot on. Seems doubtful that they began this venture with a business plan, market research and advice from a good business analyst. The venture began as Robyn's teen-aged dream and Kody's white-horse wish to make it come true. Sometimes I think that if they removed their faces, ridiculous logo and any mention of their plyg lifestyle, the stuff might actually sell more. Especially the pieces that are in the casino. I also agree that Janelle should document her weight loss journey and shoot for a book. She's the most likable and relatable of all the wives. With a successful and significant weight loss, she might have a very interesting story to tell.

  30. How much money do you think they make off the jewelry? Also, it doesn't look like they do much actual work for the line. They have designers, someone else makes the jewelry. It just looks like they put it in a package and mail it out. Also, the jewelry kinda of creeps me out, especially the hands.

  31. Back when the Supreme Court decided to support gay marriage, an interviewer asked the Browns a question on that topic. The answer was something like, "We think consenting adults should be able to marry whoever they want. We support gay marriage." I find it hardto believe that this would be I. Line with their church's teaching although I guess they could position more libertarian on that issue. Does anyone know the AUB position on gay marriage?

    2. That is true. However, they must be doing something correctly, their children seem to be reaching adulthood as normal, police, decent human beings. Hunter threw tantrums when he was 14 over the stress of moving, he seems to be doing well as he matures. Logan, Maddie, Aspen, and MyKelti don't seem to doing anything wrong, and a lot right.

  33. It's a shame to see that post from Aspyn. Even though the Brown kids have grown up in a chaotic, noisy large family setting they have actually been locked in a little Mormon box until they went on the tv show.

    I know how dorms were stressful 30 years ago, I can't imagine what they are like now.

    These kids have been quite sheltered and I'm not sure living in LV for a year or two really prepared the older ones for what is out there. My daughter will be doing dorm life in a year and I'm trying to prepare her, do they ever really listen?

    Sorry Christine, but the Presbyterians are NOT the sharks. Fluffy bunnies compared to smooth talking college boys!

    1. It's possible Aspen is not in the RIGHT dorm. These days, they have lots of options... living learning communities (each floor limited to specific majors), quiet hours, other common interests, freshmen only, etc. I can't believe that Aspen's home would be all that much quieter than a dorm, with 5 full siblings, 11 half or step siblings, and 5 adults.

    2. It was Mariah who complained about the noise in her dorm, and she grew up as an only child with Meri. As for dorm choices, she's at a pretty small private college, so there might not be too many options in accommodations.

  34. Also, Aspyn tweeted that she plans to study abroad as much as possible while in college. To which princess Mariah replied, "no. I won't allow it." So now Mariah dictates where her siblings can study? I think that's Christine's decision, not Mariah's.

    1. Aspyn seems like a beautiful girl, both in maturity and physical appearance, and I hope she gets to travel in Europe.

      When Mariah makes these pronouncements in couch sessions with her step siblings she does them with this "I'm going to say something provocative, but I'm so cute it's okay" look on her face (very at odds with her age), while her less indulged step siblings generally manifest an expressionless or long suffering air. The siblings reactions mirror how Janelle and Christine behave on the couch sessions when Meri is holding forth.The kids take after their mothers very closely, for all they're being raised in one "house" in Lehi.

    2. How will she afford to study abroad? My son spent a semester in Ireland and it was ghastly expensive.

    3. I'm thinking that the decision is Aspen's, after discussion with her parents. My guess is that Aspen expects to borrow the money to go. Mariah is showing her selfishness, since she went to Europe over the summer, and has chosen a college several hours away from Aspen in the first place. Why does Mariah care where Aspen goes to school, since she chose a college out of state? I understand its close to her church and extended family, but doesn't Aspen get the same right to make her own choices?

    4. We don't know how the kids college or travel is being paid for at all. My brother traveled Europe an entire semester, courtesy of his good grades and the college $$.
      Really, anything is speculation.

    5. I think that it is possible to study abroad without a huge amount of debt. My daughter had to pay for her plane ticket. That was the only real expense she had. Her university had an exchange program. Her good grades were the ticket to be a part of the program, much as Mister Sister described. She also had to pay for any trips to other countries while she was in England, but she could have survived with only the ticket to England for her expenses.

    6. I think sometimes people go a bit overboard with their interpretations of what this family says. I took Mariah's comment simply as a sister joking with another sister because she would miss her.

  36. My daughter's university (A Texas state uni) offers opportunities to study at international universities for the same (tuition/dorm/meal plan) fees she would pay staying home. You have to qualify academically.

    As for the Gina tweets - ad nauseam - I grabbed the Pepto and hopefully after a bottle I'll be feeling better.

    Mariah tweeting that Aspyn can't study abroad doesn't surprise me. She comes off with an attitude of having superiorty over her siblings. Her comment about the mission statement being stupid was so disrespectful to the woman that raised her (and I'm not talking about Meri.) I'm sure she meant it from an "I'm going to miss you and worry about you" angle but yet again her bossiness outshines her intentions.

  38. Reading these tweets it seems obvious the Brown's are deep into their "celebrity" with their self-promotion, meet and greets, and events. It also seems they are really into money grubbing and lifestyle.....constantly looking for a way to push their jewelry line and turn a buck. If these are people of the true chosen religion......it is a seriously shallow one. It is really pathetic how sold out they are to self. In Christianity it seems Christians are at least sold out to Jesus. The Browns faith is really confusing to me.
