‘Sister Wives’: Kody Brown Ends Relationship With Meri Brown the ‘Victim’?

Sister Wives Season 14 opens with Meri Brown in a twist of fate, as it’s Kody Brown who puts the brakes on the relationship and not Meri. The first wife is a bit despondent after learning Kody Brown doesn’t want to work on their fragile relationship.

So it doesn’t look like it’s Meri Brown ending things with her shared husband as fans across social media believe. Kody seems to hold a contingency over her head that Meri Brown can’t or won’t meet. A very indignant-sounding Kody Brown claims he can’t be honest with Meri because she won’t change.

This Sister Wives scene doesn’t appear to turn out well. It looks like the tension between Meri Brown and Kody Brown shows up again in several scenes from the season preview.

Sister Wives: Kody Brown Puts His Foot Down With Meri Brown

There doesn’t seem to be even a tad of romance flickering between the Sister Wives matriarch and patriarch. Kody and Meri continue with counseling. They see the same therapist who they worked with before. Meri lays it all out for the counselor that it’s Kody who refuses to work on their relationship.

Meri Brown doesn’t think the husband she shares with three other women is interested in fixing their deteriorated relationship. Kody Brown is stuck on one thing and this causes a roadblock that just won’t budge.

Kody Brown puts his foot down. He tells the therapist he won’t go any further because Meri won’t stop seeing herself as a victim. So what does Papa Brown want Meri Brown to do? The patriarch isn’t the first family member to address this with Meri.


Sister Wives: Robyn Brown - Meri Brown

Give It Up and He’ll Come Back?

Sister Wives fans probably remember when Mariah Brown, Meri and Kody’s daughter, asked her mother to stop looking at herself as the victim. But Mariah didn’t offer an ultimatum to her mother like Kody Brown does today.

Their daughter asked Meri to stop playing the victim in her catfishing saga. It sounds as if this is the same thing Kody Brown refers to during marriage counseling. It appears that Kody will only work on his relationship with Meri Brown if she finally admits she wasn’t a victim but a willing participant.

While he doesn’t give the details on Meri Brown’s “victim” role, one can only assume it has to do with that scandal. Talk about dredging up old wounds again. Why can’t the Sister Wives husband just let things go?

Sister Wives: Meri and Kody Brown Relationship Demise?

It’s important to note that this new season of TLC’s Sister Wives starts on the day the family first rolled into Flagstaff. This is right where the previous season left off. So it sounds as if not enough time elapsed for any progress to emerge in this relationship.

It looks like Kody Brown demands Meri Brown to quit playing the victim. But at the same time, it appears she isn’t too willing to do that. Another Sister Wives party is heard from when Robyn Brown steps in attempting to help. Instead of helping it appears Kody Brown lays into Robyn over defending Meri.

This scene takes place at Coyote Pass with the other members of the family mulling around. This scene has Kody yelling and doing a dance as he complains about someone.

After the Sister Wives patriarch does the dance and claims he’s fed up, it sounds as if Meri Brown is the object of his anger. But that anger is directed toward Robyn when he yells at her for defending Meri.

So much for the dating scene, Kody almost swooned over their dating again on last season’s final episode, the Tell All. In the preview video, they look like two angry people.

Season 14 of Sister Wives returns on Sunday, January 5, 2020, on TLC.
