Sister Wives Spoilers – Meri Brown Needs Money For Her Bed And Breakfast

The newest promo video for Sister Wives opens with Meri Brown in a meeting with the other wives and Kody Brown. She wants to update them on the bed an breakfast she wants to purchase. Good news is her business loan is approved. Unfortunately, there’s bad news. Meri needs help from the family for the down payment. The family is overjoyed for Meri at first until they learned she needed their help financially.

Fans recall last season Meri wanted to purchase Lizzie’s Heritage Inn, a bed and breakfast in Parowan, Utah. She wanted this house for sentimental reasons and not really for the business. The house was previously built and owned by her great-great-grandparents back in 1870. The house was occupied by four generations of her family until it was sold out of the family in the 1980s. It’s very important to Meri that this home and property be back in her family.

Sister Wives Spoilers – Kody Brown Says No To Meri

Kody Brown and Meri Brown have a strained relationship as witnessed on the last season of TLC’s  Sister Wives. The two both are committed to their family but not so much each other. It should come to no surprise to Meri that Kody tells her the family does not have the money to give her for the down payment for the bed and breakfast.

It’s evident that Meri’s frustrated when Kody Brown informed her the family doesn’t have the money to help her. She appeared to be both angry and hurt. The denial of family funds for her dream project appears to be her tipping point.

Meri Brown is shown in the clips saying, “I’m being very careful about holding it all in right now, because part of me wants to just stand up and be like, ‘Okay, fine, I don’t need you guys,’” Fans can sense she is feeling unsupported by her husband, sister wives, and family. Might this be the catalyst for her strike out on her own and leave them all behind?

The two went to therapy together and worked on their relationship. Some might even say the two are now friends. And of course, there has always been the undercurrent of jealousy rumors between Meri and Robyn.

Meri and Christine’s relationship seemed solid until recently. It appears that Season 13 finds Kody’s first wife most at odds with his third wife. Meri’s tensions with Christine were revealed when she confronted her for not wanting her around. Meri’s shown in the clip above saying to Christine, “I feel like there’s a lot that we need to figure out. I mean, you don’t feel comfortable with me around”. Christine admits that it is hard to be cordial to a woman who has an intimate relationship with your husband. She goes on to add, “The Sister Wife relationship is super tricky because you’re trying to be best friends with the woman who has a relationship with your husband”

The drama amongst the members of the Brown family seems to be very much alive and well this season. Watch the new season of Sister Wives on TLC on Sundays at 8 pm starting January 20.
