Sister Wives is the new TLC reality television. The show documents the life of a polygamist family living in Lehi, Utah, which includes patriarch Kody Brown, his three wives and their 13 children. It will also televise Brown’s courting and marriage to a fourth wife, who herself has three children. Sister Wives first broadcast on September 26, 2010, and is set to run for at least seven episodes.
One day after the series debuted, Lehi police announced they were conducting a bigamy investigation into the family. The Utah Attorney General’s office has begun seeking criminal charges against the Browns.
So that leaves me with what is intuitively in store for this multifamily! I’ve watched the show…I’m a reality TV junkie. It is very compelling. Of course the husband Kody is on best behavior but it does feel like the first wife wears the pants so to speak. Kody is like most men (sorry guys), he lives in his own little world and isn’t totally plugged into the needs of his family and doesn’t get it when it’s explained to his. He will make excuses and not listen.
He has a good soul though, he’s quite emotional and empathic. Once he sees that someone is hurting emotionally, he kicks in and then gets it.
Will charges get filed, I don’t feel so. I’m sure the law is being pushed to do something about this by the public and other outlets such as religious groups (don’t get me wrong, I love religion and church, they just don’t like me). If I’m to predict this outcome, I would have to say that no charges will be filed, thereby no one will get sent to jail. There will be a statement via the law of what they looked at and why the outcome just to please the public.
The show will continue to film, showing the family through the trials and stress, it does make for good TV! I’ll be watching!!
As time goes on, there will be more news that hits the media of one of the wives leaving, but that’s a long while down the road. His 4th wife Robyn isn’t a very good match and will cause some turmoil in the family but she will step down emotionally and fade into the background of the family. She won’t be happy at all. Those that will be watching the show will have to listen to her whine, or just turn the channel!
