Sister Wives fans noticed that Kody Brown only paid attention to his third wife Christine Brown when he went to make his fourth wife Robyn Brown happy. There are many examples of this throughout the seasons of Sister Wives, but here are a few of the many times.
Sister Wives: Kody Brown Said Christine Brown Treated Robyn Brown ’Like Dirt’
When Christine Brown’s courtyard novel continues in the November 13 episode of “Sister Wives,” she reveals she’s moving to Utah in a week. She’s asked Mer and Robyn for some “space” as she figures out her new life. Christine’s boundaries upset Robyn and made her feel rejected. That’s when the conversation suddenly shifts from talking about Christine selling her house to talking about how she’s treated her Sister Wives, especially Robyn, when talking about the sale of Christine Brown’s house. Kody says that Christine treated Robyn “like dirt from the very beginning.” He tells Christine, “That’s the reason I’m pissed off”.
Meri claims to have witnessed first hand Christine Brown’s mistreatment of Robyn. She said in an interview, “I have seen her non-acceptance of Robyn and disdain for me through the years.”
Over the past 16 seasons, Christine Brown has tried to make Robyn and her children feel welcome in the family. During Robyn and Kody Brown’s courtship, Christine was pregnant with her sixth child, Truely Brown. And when Robyn was officially added to the family as Kody’s fourth wife, she had just given birth to her daughter. She struggled with jealousy, changing family dynamics and postpartum depression. Although Christine admits that she is not the best sister-in-law for Robyn at this time, she does her best to make amends. There are plenty of examples of this from previous seasons, where she has made her regrets clear and even given Robyn her gifts as a ‘peace offering’. On a number of occasions, she clearly went out of her way to mend her sister wives relationship.
But despite Christine Brown’s best efforts to make Robyn feel welcome, Kody’s fourth wife continued to feel like an outsider. And ten years later, nothing has changed. Now Christine has left her loveless marriage to Kody and is finally ready to find a man who will give her the affection she deserves, and fans couldn’t be happier for her.
