‘Sister Wives’: Janelle Brown Reveals Emotional Pain Stirred by Couch Sessions

Sister Wives celeb Janelle Brown is not one to complain so when she does have a concern it’s usually about something substantial. Janelle is not the co-wife who worries about bad hair days. She also doesn’t speak in riddles and she doesn’t tease her fans with cryptic messages.

No, when Janelle Brown has something to say she usually just comes out with it. But since the beginning of the Sister Wives series, there’s one part of the episodes that makes Kody Brown’s second wife Janelle uneasy.

Sister Wives: It Seems Janelle Brown Irritated Kody Brown

When Kody Brown first told his Sister Wives tribe that the reality series is a go, Janelle was okay with this. But as the time grew closer for the cameras to infiltrate their lives Janelle developed cold feet.

Janelle Brown sought counseling after stressing over the cameras coming. Just the thought of being so vulnerable to the cameras worried her. Janelle’s concerns over the reality show annoyed Kody who told Janelle she needed to be more positive.

One of the things that worried her the most even before the Sister Wives cameras arrived was her career. Janelle and the rest of the family were about to come out to the public. She worried that when she exposed her lifestyle she may lose her job.

So, she told her employer ahead of time. Much to her relief, Janelle Brown learned as long as she doesn’t mention the company’s name, her job is safe.


Dread Comes To The Set Of The Show

Once the Sister Wives reality series rolled out Janelle found something to really dread. That’s those couch sessions. The way she describes these scenes, which emerge during every episode, sounds brutal at times.

Janelle Brown sees these Sister Wives couch scenes as a place just ripe for dredging up old wounds. This is something that happens and while the segment is short, those wounds don’t heal as the show closes.

So at times when they rehash things it hurts feelings. Another problem that pops up while sitting on the couch also worries her. It seems the Sister Wives adults tend to put their foot in their mouths, according to Janelle Brown.

There’s no time to think about answering the questions while on that couch. When you add to the discussion without thinking it through, feelings get hurt.

Sister Wives: Robyn Brown as Example

Janelle Brown offered up an example of how hurtful the info coming out of those couch sessions can be. Years back Robyn divulged to the Sister Wives world the part Kody played with her choice of a wedding dress.

As the Sister Wives spouses sat on the couch, Robyn shared how Kody helped her pick out her wedding dress. Christine Brown became so furious that she walked off the set.

 Sister Wives fans assumed Christine came back after the scene played out and she did. But not until three days later. So it sounds as if Janelle Brown has some very good reasons to dread that couch segment as it drags back stuff they want to keep in the past.
