‘Sister Wives’: Kody Brown Steps Out Ahead of New Season

Sister Wives star Kody Brown stepped out of the house for a recent occasion which led to one of the rare photos of the patriarch these days. Besides showing up with his four wives in a plural marriage portrait over Thanksgiving, Kody Brown seems to keep pretty much to himself since the last season ended.

It looks like the recent birthday of one of the Sister Wives daughters prompted Papa Brown to visit a restaurant. Janelle Brown posted the picture of Kody Brown and their daughter Savanah Brown who turned 15. While all the wives consider all the kids their own, Savanah’s biological mom is Janelle.

Kody Brown has certainly spun intrigue over the past several months since the last season ended. He once chatted up Sister Wives followers on social media sites. But since Season 13 ended it seems he avoided the online world. Although, three of his Sister Wives spouses conjured up enough excitement in his absence.

Along with Kody, Robyn Brown seemed to stay away from the Internet as well as the shared Sister Wives husband. So that left Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, and Christine Brown to carry the load of keeping Sister Wives on the viewers’ minds. Their posts seemed to keep the fans interested during the hiatus between the seasons.

Who Did It Best?

Before the official word of a new Sister Wives season was announced, it was Meri, Christine, and Janelle who kept the viewers’ interest. They did this with their frequent posts online.

It seems Kody Brown’s wife Meri Brown posted online more than Janelle and Christine put together. While Meri never once mentioned the Sister Wives life and where she fit in today, she certainly posted many hints.

Or at least the fans of the TLC show considered Meri Brown’s many posts riddled with clues. Her posts ranged from cryptic messages bringing fans to assume she planned to fly solo to photos of herself with other men.

Assumptions ran rampant thanks to the messages and photos shared by the first wife of Kody. Meri’s posts with unknown men, who later were introduced as friends or family created a new love-life chatter for Meri.

While Christine seemed to attempt the same type of posts from time to time, fans didn’t buy it. She threw a couple of photos out of herself standing with men other than Kody Brown.

It appears they turned out to be members of the Sister Wives production crew but they failed to create the chatter Meri’s photos did. That’s because some viewers see Christine Brown as desperate to gain Kody’s attention.

So followers of the show knew there’s no way Christine Brown planned to leave Kody Brown. With the new season almost here, much chatter about Kody and his relationships surface online.

Was the Joke on the Fans?

But it was the opposite for Meri, her posts seem to hint to greener pastures. At the time she posted a photo of herself and another man, fans knew she had relationship trouble festering with Kody.

So the first wife’s posts seemed more based in reality than Christine’s posts. As fans see Christine never leaving Kody Brown.

Christine seems to worship Kody , the man she shares with three other women on Sister Wives. Janelle didn’t seem to sway into posts that left fans guessing. Sister Wives enthusiasts don’t consider Janelle the most level-headed of the spouses for nothing.

Kody Brown’s second wife, Janelle stayed within the realms of a mother and wife with her posts. She didn’t offer anything that would lead fans to assume her life was changing behind the scenes.

So maybe all Meri’s cryptic messages that led to fans’ assumptions was a well-planned out ploy. Then when Christine attempted to follow in her co-wife’s footsteps, it wasn’t believable.

Either way, Kody Brown is just starting to show up on social media again as Sister Wives and Season 14 is just a few weeks away.

The new season of Sister Wives rolls out Sunday night, January 5 on TLC.
