The latest episode of Sister Wives opened up a new chapter in Kody and Janelle Brown’s ongoing saga, and let’s just say, it doesn’t look promising for the once-close couple. With an air of finality, Janelle Brown has made her feelings clear on their estranged relationship.
Sister Wives: A Failed Reconnection Attempt at Mariposa
The latest episode of the popular TLC series showcased Kody Brown’s attempt to rekindle their romance, surprising Janelle with a birthday dinner at the highly sought-after Mariposa restaurant in Sedona, Arizona. The evening was supposed to be an opportunity to redefine and perhaps salvage their relationship.
For those who haven’t been keeping up, the couple had initially announced their separation during last season’s Tell-All episode, leaving fans skeptical about their future. This date night seemed to be Kody’s attempt to bring some resolution, or possibly a new beginning to their convoluted relationship. But according to Janelle’s confessions during the episode, it seems like the ship has already sailed.
“We’re just different people now,” Janelle said during her on-air confessional. She painted a picture of Kody being consumed by his life with Robyn and their children, making it clear that she felt left out of the equation. Despite the beautiful setting, good food, and supposedly relaxing ambiance of Mariposa, the romantic factor between them was conspicuously absent.
Sister Wives: Janelle Contemplates Life Beyond Kody
Following the anticlimactic date night, Janelle took it a step further, opening up about her willingness to remain part of a plural marriage in the future. In a recent interview with PEOPLE, she even hinted that the issue might not be with the concept of polygamy, but rather with Kody himself.
“I’m open to plural marriage, but I don’t know if there are really a lot of men who can actually pull it off,” Janelle shared, indicating that she might be open to this lifestyle again, but under different circumstances.
This revelation is not just surprising but may also signify the final nail in the coffin for her and Kody’s relationship, especially when coupled with the couple’s lack of social media interaction in recent times.
Janelle is WILD cause lemme tell ya, I’d rather chew through a leather jacket than spend one moment with a man who refuses to have a relationship with our kids. #sisterwives pic.twitter.com/QQP2SQgdIz— Diversity Hire 🧚🏾 (@kayyy_L0vee) October 9, 2023

Fans of Sister Wives have followed the highs and lows of Janelle and Kody’s marriage over the years. From being a harmonious duo to a couple on the rocks, their relationship has been a roller-coaster ride that viewers have been part of.
