Sister Wives star Meri Brown played an important role in recruiting Robyn into the family, but future efforts went out of control. Her co-wives remember only too well how she pushed to make Robyn Brown part of their plural marriage. But while Meri was looking for wife number 5 for Kody Brown, her co-wives backed out.
Sister Wives: Meri Brushes Up On Recruiting Skills
The potential wife’s name is Natalie, and when Kody Brown and his first spouse meet her, Meri Brown begins with her spiel. She asks Kody Brown what he thinks of Natalie. Then, she answers her own question by saying, “she’s pretty.” Those are the same words the patriarch heard earlier.
The woman is very pretty, so it might surprise fans of the Sister Wives that Kody Brown put a stop to this conversation. He tells his first wife that’s what he said about Robyn Brown when he met her.
In this retro video from 2012 (see below), it looks like Meri is looking for a fifth wife for her plural marriage. The other three sister wives take it as a sign that Meri Brown is recruiting again. Their reaction to watching the video with Meri and Kody Brown meeting Natalie is not positive.
Sister Wives: Robyn Is Last of the Recruits
Christine Brown, the most animated of the Sister Wives, says Meri Brown is back at work. She refers to Meri Brown’s recruitment methods and turns to Robyn. Christine tells Robyn she’s happy to have her, but Meri should stop “bringing those women in”.
Kody Brown’s wife, Janelle Brown, who is usually the voice of reason for the Sisters Wives, speaks later. She says that her co-wife should stop bringing in those women long before she should. Janelle Brown says that when Meri meets someone she likes, she automatically jumps to being one of the “Sister Wives”.
Meri Brown’s three co-wives all agree that your wife is your way of doing things. Kody Brown also sees his wife’s tendency to recruit someone she likes, like she did with Robyn Brown.
