Do Kody Brown’s former wives get residuals from Sister Wives episodes? Fans are very curious about this as he and his fourth wife, Robyn have already taken so much from them. Now, with Season 18 apparently currently filming, the question is coming up once again. Read on for more details.

Do Kody Brown’s Former Sister Wives Get Residuals From Show?

When Kody Brown was at risk of losing the show, he took a significant pay cut. Plus, it appeared that not all of the wives would be paid individually. Rather, they would get a lump sum for appearing in the series. Now, three of his wives have left the marriage. They are doing their own things as they have been for many years. More so, his former third wife, Christine is not even living in Flagstaff anymore and has moved on with a new man. His former first wife has her own businesses and Janelle recently established her own company along with her Strive with Janelle.

Therefore, after seventeen seasons, do the wives get residuals from the show? After all, it streams on discovery+ and will rerun when a new season is beginning. Fans took to Reddit to inquire about this. “Do the Sister Wives get paid for the reruns?” the OP started the thread. This is a fair question especially since Janelle has noted that she has nothing to her name. That was what was keeping her with Kody and staying stagnant. “With Kody negotiating their contracts, who knows what opportunities these women missed,” one person responded.

Another added: “He’s not as good at negotiating as he thinks, after all, he negotiated the cost of running utilities to the coyote pass property out of the sale price, and now he’s found out that’s a much larger cost than he thought.” Someone also pointed out how Kody Brown had to lower their contract: “Him going from 180k a person to 180k for the family a season shows his ignorance and ego.” Finally, a Redditor noted this: “No they would need to be Union members & have SAG cards plus really good agents.”

Bottom Line

As of now, it is unclear if Kody Brown’s former wives or even he and Robyn get paid residuals from the show. Christine may have gotten lucky when she got her spinoff Cooking With Just Christine. However, if the contracts are set in stone, there might not be much that can be done after the fact. TLC may have offered incentives to keep the ex-wives filming. One of them was building a set for Christine in her Utah home so that she would not have to travel to Flagstaff anymore. It would be quite sad if they did not profit from streaming and reruns.

Do you believe that Kody Brown is a bad negotiator and only thought in the moment? More so, do you think his doing so hurt them in the long run with residuals? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
