Sister Wives celeb Meri Brown sheds some light on what went on behind the scenes during one of the most unforgettable days of her life. Fans of the Sister Wives mom of one, Meri Brown, know how she loves her daughter Mariah Brown.
Sister Wives: Meri Brown Hits Windy City
Meri Brown’s world revolved around her daughter for pretty much all of her adult life. Meri, as well as the other Sister Wives’ parents, had no idea that Mariah is gay. Apparently Mariah wasn’t 100 percent sure herself. That’s until she developed feelings for Audrey Kriss, the woman she is now living with and engaged to.
On Sunday night’s Sister Wives episode, the Sister Wives ladies landed in Chicago to visit Mariah and Audrey. All four of the women joined together for this trip, leaving Kody Brown home to watch the kids.
All six women together in the Windy City opened up for sharing some deep thoughts. Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, Christine Brown, and Robyn Brown got into this discussion with Mariah.
Meri just needs to cut her losses and get out of that family. None of them want her there, including her “husband” it’s sad. When she offered up her house for family gatherings they acted like she suggested they jump off a cliff. #sisterwives #MeriBrown

Tears Flow as Old Roadblocks Crumble
Tears eventually rolled down Mariah’s face as she talked about being gay and the roadblocks she felt from the family’s religion. She struggled with this for a long time, she said.
Mariah credits the family’s move to Vegas as a turning point in her life. For a long time, Mariah thought she’d enter a plural marriage just like her Sister Wives’ family. She thought her mom, Meri Brown, and her other Sister Wives moms had a life she wanted for herself.
Once Mariah met Audrey, she realized she loved her and the rest is history. Meri Brown revisited the day Mariah came to the family to tell them she is gay. It looked as though this Sister Wives matriarch beats herself up a bit today over her first reaction.
Sister Wives: That Was Then, This Is Now
While sitting on that famous Sister Wives couch, Meri offered praise for her three co-wives. A tearful Meri Brown said she was thankful for her three co-wives who took Mariah’s news much better than she did.
When Mariah came out to her parents, Christine, Janelle, and Robyn smiled and opened their arms for a hug from their daughter. Meri looked visibly shaken as this news seemed to stun her.
The news shocked Meri. She couldn’t wrap her head around how she didn’t know this about her own daughter. After that initial shock wore off, it was easy to see how this mom accepted Audrey into her heart as if she was her second daughter.
But it was Meri’s initial response that seemed to bother her and Meri was thankful her co-wives were more open to the news than she was at first. But that was then and this is now. As Mariah and her fiance, Audrey, talk babies, Meri couldn’t be happier for her only daughter.
