Monday, “Sister Wives” Christine Brown and Meri Brown were under a Twitter attack for their choices in life and their weight. Oddly enough, Robyn Brown, sister wife number four, was also under fire. Not sure why since she’s the smallest of the bunch. But what about Janelle Brown? She’s the heaviest of the wives and yet she wasn’t at the receiving end of the Twitter attack.
The “Sister Wives” have not hidden their struggles with their weight. Last fall we witnessed the move to Las Vegas where the Brown’s decided to look into different business ventures. One of them happened to be a gym, and with that came the personal trainer and exercise.
Meri weighed in at 213, Janelle was 271, Christine 222 and Robyn, who was also pregnant at the time weighed in at 158 pounds. As the season continues, viewers witnessed the wives struggles as they battled the bulge. Many viewers applauded them for their efforts and putting themselves out in public. Especially knowing the public can be cruel in criticizing.
And this Twitter user decided to be just that, cruel.

@MeriBrown1 French doors? How about a treadmill for all the wives!!!
@MeriBrown1 You are completely selfish. #shameful
#sisterwives Don’t look at another woman’s body? He should look….Kodys wives are huge!!
#sisterwives Meri Brown, French doors vs Sliding doors? Get over yourself!
#sisterwives I hope Kody washes in between bed hopping with those ladies.
#sisterwives Those ladies are the neediest, dysfunctional, most irresponsible women! Disgusting!
(Christine Brown) @rosecolored6 Okay ladies! You all need to work on your physical appearances! Diet and exercise! Look at the Duggars!!! Please!!!
(Robyn Brown) @LuvgvsUwngs You all need to follow the Duggars. I don’t agree with polygamy. However, you all make it worse.
In a question and answer series Janelle chimed in on why she felt she needed to lose the weight, “it wasn’t about the weight it was about the quality of life.” She and Meri also hint about being “clean” and Robyn also discusses big “changes.”
Is she hinting about something the viewers are not aware of yet?
This season, Kody made the announcement that the gym franchise was not the direction they were going. The Brown’s had decided to continue their venture into real estate (Janelle announced on her Twitter that the family will be working with Mona Riekki and TMI Realty after the first of the year). Their website, KodyBrownFamily.com tells a different story. The wives made the announcement during the show about their My Sister Wives Closet business, but the Brown website is also linked to LIV International products.
Meri and Janelle make comments on their personal Twitter about the products. Meri even comments about a 5k run. Are the wives working on a new and improved healthier Brown family?

Dec. 5 A workout that involves hitting a punching bag is good for what ails you! One of the best forms of therapy!
Dec. 7 Thank you @Lifespeedfitnes ! I’m running for the first time since I was in elementary school! It is so amazing!
Meri Brown @MeriBrown1
Dec. 9 Thank you @JeffTuttle1 @livcorporate for products that have transformed my life, & for an awesome and educational weekend! Go Liv!
Dec. 10 I had the honor of running a 5K fundraiser for #holdingouthelp a few months ago. Kerri & Tonia are amazing ladies! Thank you for all you do!
Christine took to her Twitter to discuss how proud she was of Janelle for working out.
Dec. 16 I am so proud of Janelle, she works out so hard
Even Kody Browntook to Twitter to tell Janelle how proud he was of Janelle.
Dec 16 @JanelleBrown117 I’m very proud of your effort and commitment. You look so good! Keep it up. Thanks Sean @Lifespeedfitnes
Truth be told, no one knows where a person is in their journey. Judging by the photos on the LIV link, they all look a lot better than they do on the current season of “Sister Wives.” People need to realize shows are taped many months in advance.
Tune in to “Sister Wives” on TLC at 9 p.m. EST Sunday.
Follow Janelle Brown’s weight loss journey on her TLC blog.
Was she right to call out them out like that? Is this a new business venture we are going to hear about in future episodes? Sound off in the comments below.
