It’s no secret that Kody Brown and his first wife Meri have struggled in their marriage for years on the TLC series “Sister Wives.”
But what does Kody Brown’s fourth wife Robyn Brown think of Meri Brown and Kody Brown’s strained and tumultuous relationship? She expressed her thoughts in a recent Us Weekly interview.
Sister Wives: Robyn Brown Said The Problems Between Meri Brown And Kody Brown Were ‘Difficult To Watch’
In a recent interview, Robyn Brown explained that she “saw a significant change” in Meri and Kody’s relationship during her infamous catfishing scandal in 2015. At the time, Meri Brown believed she was talking to a man on the internet, but the “man” turned out to be a woman named Jackie Overton.
“It was very, very difficult to watch,” Robyn Brown said of the change in Kody and Meri Brown’s marriage.
As for her own relationship with Kody, Robyn Brown said she felt the man tried to keep his problems with Mer as private as possible. Yet he was angry and hurt at the time, and this inevitably spilled over into his relationships with his three other wives.
Robyn Brown was most hurt by the Meri Brown catfishing scandal and the departure of Kody, she explained, because she lost a close friendship with Meri. After all, Meri was the woman Robyn was most connected to in the first place. Kody’s first wife even suggested that Robyn Brown come into the Brown family in the first place.
“I struggled a lot with that, because Meri Brown and I were always very close,” Robyn Brown explained. Since then, it took several years for Meri Brown to feel “safe enough” to be close to her sister-wife again. “She went into a really dark place because of what happened,” lamented Kody’s fourth wife. “He blocked a lot of people out of his life, almost everyone, because he went through so much. It was a very difficult time for me because I lost my friend.”
Since then, however, Robyn Brown and Meri Brown had rebuilt their relationship. The Sister Wives star said she and Meri have recently found their way back to their former friendship.
