Kody Brown wants all of his wives to all play nice with Robyn. He even has a bad habit on the show of saying the wrong thing. This week’s episode had him pushing Janelle even further away with his words.
Here is what Kody said to Janelle Brown about Robyn in this week’s Sister Wives.
Kody Brown wants his wives to respect Robyn’s role
The episode saw Kody Brown sitting down and talking to Janelle about how everyone treats Robyn. According to Kody, Robyn came into the family and was nice to everyone. However, he said that no one treated her the same and that many owe her a big apology. However, Kody then proved what this was all about.
The father of eighteen said that Robyn is the only wife who is completely loyal to him and accepts him as the head of the household. That has been the running theme this season. Kody earlier ordered all his wives to pledge their support to patriarchy. From the sound of it, Robyn was the only wife who was 100% on board with pledging her unwavering loyalty to Kody as the leader of the family.
For her part, Robyn said she did not know that Kody was going to Janelle. Kody demanded that her boys apologize for not being nice to his fourth wife. However, when Janelle asked if Kody would defend her if they switched their roles, he refused to admit to it. Instead, he said they haven’t acted like a married couple in a long time, and she just went off on her own.
Janelle was tired of the entire discussion. She said Kody has been harping on this for too long and it was getting old.
Reddit loves to hate Kody Brown
Someone posted a clip of this on Reddit, and it allowed everyone to start dog-piling Kody Brown again. In the thread’s title, the OP wrote, “Kody deserves a throat punch.” This led to people discussing how poorly Kody has treated Janelle over the years, with things getting worse recently.
One person mentioned Kody abandoned her and left her alone. This doesn’t give him the right to say she lives “like a single woman” since that is all his fault. As they said, this was Kody doing what he does best – gaslighting one of his wives.
Another commenter said it has been clear all season that three of his wives have no use for him anymore. With him no longer necessary for their happiness, he is losing his power. That makes arguments like this lose a lot of steam, especially when Janelle, Meri, and Christine mostly just roll their eyes at him.
How much more do you think the other wives will take before they all leave Kody Brown alone with Robyn? Has he finally crossed that line? Let us know your thoughts and watch Sister Wives Sundays on TLC.
