Sister Wives star Ysabel Brown gets a piece of Kody after Christine drama. Find out why his daughter called her dad out for having ‘messed up’ priorities.
Kody Brown declines to accompany daughter cross-country for serious surgery
Season 16 of Sister Wives is a year behind real-life events in the family. So, while fans are just seeing Ysabel Brown prepare for scoliosis surgery, she actually had the surgery in the fall of 2020. However, one very important member of her family didn’t go with her.
Ysabel’s father, Kody Brown, declined to attend his daughter’s very serious and very painful back operation. In a new promo clip for the episode airing Sunday, December 5, Kody tries to explain the situation to his daughter.
TLC shared the clip on their Twitter account.
Around her dad, Ysabel puts on a brave face, saying she understands why he can’t go. However, during her one-on-one confessional, the teenager broke down over Kody’s decision.
“I need him to be there,” she confesses. “But then, why isn’t he coming?” “Why wouldn’t he just drop everything for me?” Ysabel wonders.
She doesn’t hold back her feelings as she rips into her dad.
Ysabel Brown gets a piece of Kody
Like mother, like daughter? Ysabel Brown shows off her feisty side in the short clip. “I think his priorities are a little screwed up,” Christine and Kody’s daughter says.
In another confessional, Ysabel is more composed as she admits that Kody has “a lot of kids to think about.” She understand that he has to make sure all the kids are safe. However, that doesn’t mean she isn’t hurt.
“It sucks. It sucks that he can’t be there,” – Ysabel Brown, Sister Wives.
Why can’t he be there?
She SLAMS his reason for not going
In his own confessional, Kody Brown explains why he can’t accompany Christine and Ysabel to New Jersey for the surgery.
He cites two reasons he can’t go. One is not wanting to be away from the family for that long. Due to the pandemic, he would have to quarantine several weeks before and after the surgery, keeping him away from the plural family even longer.
Secondly, he doesn’t want to risk his own exposure to COVID. In a recent Cameo, Kody Brown revealed that he did have COVID at some point, but he didn’t clarify if it was recent or during the height of the pandemic.
Regardless, Ysabel isn’t having his excuses. In a confessional, she calls her dad brave and strong, but wonders why Kody is “letting fear control him.”
“How long are you going to stop your life for?” Ysabel asks as the preview clip ends.
Fans will see the whole conversation between Ysabel Brown and her dad on the next episode. Read an update on her life after surgery HERE.
