‘Sister Wives’: Robyn and Kody Brown’s Secret Backfired on Meri?

Sister Wives celebs Meri Brown and Kody Brown once had a secret about Robyn Brown that Meri felt brought her closer to her shared husband. The way Robyn Brown came into the Sister Wives family was a bit complicated. It seems after Meri and Kody met Robyn, Meri saw how smitten Kody was with this younger woman and ran with it.

Because Meri liked Robyn so much, she encouraged this relationship. But she did this without her two co-wives knowing about it. From the way Meri explains the relationships with Christine Brown and Janelle Brown back then, one has to wonder if there wasn’t a hidden agenda on the Sister Wives matriarch’s part.

Sister Wives: Kody Brown & Meri Brown Share Secret

Robyn remained Kody and Meri’s little secret for some time. Meri describes how it somehow made her feel closer to her husband. She talked about this in the book, “Becoming Sister Wives: The Story of an Unconventional Marriage”.

Meri Brown talks about the vast array of feelings regarding Kody and Robyn. While being the only wife out of three to know about Robyn at first, this gave her and Kody something to talk about that didn’t include Janelle or Christine.

Meri once said if Janelle wasn’t one of Kody’s wives, she doesn’t know if they would be friends. But because they are in this Sister Wives marriage, she had to work at getting along with her.

When Robyn Brown Came Along…

Christine was the Sister Wives member that bubbled up some jealousy for Meri. When Kody Brown married Janelle, his second wife, the two seemed to admire each other’s brains other than sharing a full-blown romance. So Papa Brown’s first wife wasn’t jealous of Janelle, but Christine was a different story.

Christine is all about a romance with Kody, which sparked jealousy in his first wife. So when Robyn came along it sounds like Meri Brown wasn’t on the best of terms with her co-wives.

Veteran Sister Wives viewers don’t have to be reminded of how Christine took to Kody marrying Robyn Brown. Kody seemed really into his new wife and he didn’t hide it well. When they honeymooned for a week, angst festered in Christine. Janelle also was a bit stand-offish of a fourth wife coming on board.
