On Sunday night’s episode of “Sister Wives” Kody Brown offended women across the country. Commenting on the polygamist’s family trip to Illinois, Brown stated that he wanted his wives “obey” him.
In one instance, Brown who is married to wives, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn lost his temper and stormed off away from the RV. Tension filled the air when wife, Meri had the audacity to demand that before driving the RV again he needed to rest longer.
When Brown had a chance to simmer down, he explained why he was so angry with his wives. “You know, I’ve had two nights in a row where I’ve been driving all day. Today, we’ve been fighting the wind all day, and I’ve had four hours of sleep.”
“I was just done. I was just ready to melt down because I was too exhausted to sit there and try to delegate. I wanted to bark orders and have them obeyed.”
His wife, Christine was not happy with his use of the word “obey” and voiced her displeasure. “I think that word, ‘Obey’, is in fact a four letter word. Kody, I think that we do our best.”
“We understand that you get tired. We understand that you get stressed out. You can’t just throw out, ‘I think you should obey me. It’s kind of like, well, that’s offensive.”
Kody Brown, who was obviously in a whiny mood, responded to Christine’s comments. “When I’m really grumpy, it’s hard to sit here and try to sell everybody.” Hard to find sympathy with a man with four wives, he knew what he was getting into when he married them.
During the trip in the RV, the Browns visited the site where their church’s founder, Joseph Smith was killed. The family belongs to the Apostolic United Brethren Church.
Catch up with the family when Sister Wives airs on TLC. Sister Wives is on Sundays at 9/8c.
