Undeniably, there are many mixed feelings surrounding the upcoming season of Sister Wives.

Although Meri wasn’t done trying, she was tired of feeling like a fool for sticking around. Reprioritizing, she moved her clothing business to the bed and breakfast and made her exit from her union with Kody, Christine, Janelle, and Robyn Brown. While she admits there is a Season 19 without completely confirming details, she also may affect the release.

  1. Good on Meri, as frustrating as it was watching her constantly follow Kody around literally begging for his attention whilst HE LITERALLY treated her with almost ‘disdain’….he dismissed her constantly belittling her and chipping away at her self esteem.
    So now…..he’ll get a taste of his own medicine….the funding of the ‘Kody Brown and his domestic bullying and abuse’ show is at a stand still.
    Kody and Robyn….I suggest you both get ‘real jobs’ rather than living off ( your now absent wives)

  2. I’m done watching. I started to watch because I was interested in how they managed to make things work. It was a different culture and I’m interested in learning about all. NOW it’s no longer interesting in that respect. It’s just become like all the other FAKE-reality shows. People become sideshows.
