In the episode of December 4, sister wivesKody Brown tells his second wife, Janelle Brown, that she didn’t welcome him back his fourth wife, Robyn Brown. She said that Robyn came into the family, she treated everyone “very nicely” and that she did not receive the same type of treatment. Kody and Robyn have been complaining about this for a while. It was one of the reasons Kody says he fell in love with his third wife, Christine Brown.
However, after seeing again sister wives Season 1, the truth was very different from what Kody and Robyn remember. Here are four ways Robyn wasn’t nice to her sister wives when she came into the family. These cases show how Robyn demanded more than she gave.
Robyn demanded equal time with Kody before the marriage
At the beginning of sister wives Season 1, Kody spent every weekend traveling to and from Robyn’s house. during their courtship. The trip took four hours, which distracted much-needed attention from his three wives and his 12 children.
After Robyn and Kody got engaged, she moved to Utah to be closer to family. Even then, Robyn demanded that she be in the “rotation” with the wives, even though she wasn’t a wife yet.
Kody’s first wife, Meri Brown, said it wasn’t fair for Robyn to be in the rotation since the other wives and children needed that time with him before the wedding. Robyn argued with Meri in the couch interview and said it was “necessary” for her and her children, Dayton, Breanna and Aurora, to be in Kody’s rotation. It doesn’t seem very nice of Robyn to demand Kody’s time when Christine had just left. gave birth to her daughterTruly, and needed support.
Robyn kissed Kody several times before they got married
The Brown family adhered to chastity and “purity” before marriage, as it is an integral part of the fundamentalist Mormon sect that they followed. So it was a big shock in sister wives Season 1 when Kody and Robyn admitted to sealing their engagement with a kiss.
Christine expressed the pain and betrayal she felt when Kody and Robyn kissed before their wedding. She believed that it was wrong to kiss a married man. Even after the wives expressed their discomfort about the kiss, Robyn and Kody continued to kiss. They were even caught trying to sneak a kiss off-camera when Christine was in labor with Truely. That behavior doesn’t seem respectful, caring, or kind to Robyn.
Robyn betrayed her sisters’ wives by taking Kody shopping for a wedding dress
In sister wives Season 1, Robyn took her sister wives-to-be on a special day to shop for wedding dresses in preparation for their wedding. Robyn made sure they knew it was an important day to bond with her sister wives.
So it was one of the biggest surprises of sister wives Season 1 when Kody admitted that she later ran off with Robyn and helped her pick out her wedding dress. the wives were devastated.
Christine was so upset by the news that she walked out of the interview. Robyn was not only the only bride to get an expensive wedding dress, but she was also the only one to get Kody interested in anything related to wedding planning. Robyn completely broke the trust of her sister wives at this point and succeeded, so all of her “nice” gestures to move on felt dishonest.
Robyn ‘needed’ an 11-day honeymoon
Robyn said she “needed” to have an 11-day honeymoon with Kody in San Deigo, California. And by doing this, his other wives felt completely alone. Janelle struggled emotionally; Christine had just given birth to Truely and Meri was worried about her marriage.
While the wives were struggling at home with their 13 children, Kody was having a blast with his new wife. He and Robyn took surf lessons, went on a private safari, and even went zip-lining. He told Christine that he “needed” the 11-day honeymoon with Kody.
The other wives never had a honeymoon destination like Robyn. Janelle and Meri went on impromptu road trips for a few days before going back to their lives. In the meantime, Christine didn’t even have a honeymoon.
These are just a few ways that Robyn’s behavior wasn’t entirely kind and loving. In any case, she Robyn came to the family demanding a lot and caring only for herself and the needs of her children. Fast forward to sister wives Season 17, and Kody has completely flipped the script, saying that Robyn was perfect and sweet to them. Fortunately, there is video evidence to show the truth.
New Sister Wives season 17 episodes air on Sundays at 10pm EST on TLC.
