Sister Wives star Kody Brown already has four wives and it doesn’t look as if he’s in the market for a fifth wife. However, a 2 year old rumor is once again making the rounds online along with a picture of a woman. The scuttlebutt online says it’s a secret wife of Kody Brown and will be revealed a future season of the Sister Wives television series.
However, it appears to be just that, a rumor. But the story keeps coming back like a zombie.
Sister Wives: Kody Brown Takes Another Wife?
Kody Brown keeps a lot under wraps in-between seasons. He’s not very active on social media when the Sister Wives show is on hiatus. Even as a new season nears, Kody keeps pretty much to himself.
It seems just the opposite of Meri Brown, Kody’s first wife. Meri Brown took on a new independent look in her online posts since the last season ended. Many fans believe that she is ready to fly the Sister Wives coop. This leads to the rumor of the fifth wife.
Some fans think Kody Brown has a replacement in the wings? And even post a picture that has been circulating for over two years. The the rumor gets reported as fact and it’s a vicious circle.
Wife Number Five – Really?
As you can see in the post above, the poster claims that Leigh is Kody’s fifth wife but she won’t show up until the season after the next one.
Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that Meri Brown and Kody are having problems. Many fans think that TLC will drop the show if Kody Brown has less than four wives, so the replacement rumor keeps popping up.
While the TLC preview for the next season describes Meri Brown and Kody Brown working on their marriage via therapy, who knows if it worked. Sister Wives followers won’t know this until the new season starts.
Sister Wives: Signs, Clues, and Possibilities
Like in the DiVinci code, people look for signs and clues and will grasp at anything. His real estate is often seen by over zealous fans as a clue to a secret fifth wife.
Kody Brown owns seven properties in Flagstaff. This includes half of the home Kody and Christine Brown purchased when first moving to Flagstaff. Then there’s the four parcels of land on Coyote Pass seen on the last season of Sister Wives.
Last, but certainly not least, there’s Robyn’s new Flagstaff home. While that makes six properties, the Flagstaff property accessor documents show that Kody purchased another property near Robyn’s new mansion. This makes seven properties but one without a Sister Wives resident.
Where Oh Where Would Wife Number Five Go?
Kody Brown is planning to build a giant house, with a section for four wives. Some fans are looking closely at the house and think they see clues. When Kody was discussing the big house blueprints with the draftsman, he wanted a section of his own.
They think this was this code for another section in that blueprint for a possible fifth wife for Kody Brown? But if Meri Brown does go, rogue, then they won’t need five spaces.
A fifth spouse for Kody is a little hard to believe right now. Although last February rumors had Kody taking on this woman as a spiritual wife. Her name suddenly appeared on Wikimedia and then taken down. But as with all wikis, anyone can information, and generally false information and rumors get taken off.
One thing is for sure, the Sister Wives clan, as well as TLC, knows how to pull in the publicity.
Sister Wives watchers will need to tune in to the new season to see just where Kody Brown and his four wives’ journey has led them so far. But a fifth wife? That’s a hard thing to keep secret.
The premiere of Sister Wives Season 14 rolls out Sunday night, January 5 on TLC.
