Sister Wives is back in full swing, catching the TLC viewers up with the polygamist antics of Kody Brown and his four “wives.” Meri is officially out, and Robyn is on her throne and pregnant, and during the off-season, Meri weathered the fallout.
As All About the Tea reported, Meri fell victim to a prolific “catfish,” and was allegedly taken in by a twisted schemer named Jackie Overton, posing as attractive business mogul, “Sam Cooper.”
Meri is involved in a health supplement distributorship, and Jackie as “Sam” convinced her that he was interested in buying her product for one of his business ventures. However, business was not the only angle that Jackie used to lure Meri into trusting “Sam.” Jackie supposedly targets needy women, and Meri, being newly ditched for Robyn, was a prime target.
A little digging revealed that “Sam” was wooing Meri, and while the virtual coziness didn’t appear to actually cross any literal boundaries, there was definitely a flirty relationship going on. “Sam,” aka @notbatmanyet, roped in another victim, “Dream Chaser,” and the threesome developed a virtual friendship, that went on for months.
Two months before this anniversary milestone, a late night convo took an interesting turn, between the three besties.
The exchanges continued to veer into shady territory, as the friendship grew.
About a week later, a special delivery arrived for Meri. She tweeted, “Thank you
@notbatmanyet ! Did you get yours too @Dreamer1289 ? He’s so nice! I love this fun twitter friendship! ;-),” with the following photo of herself holding a bouquet of flowers.
Kody obviously caught wind of Meri’s ongoing banter with “Sam,” and tweeted a cryptic message of disapproval.
Meri continued the banter throughout July, supposedly cutting ties with “Sam,” when she realized that her cute tycoon friend was actually a woman con artist from Oklahoma.
Unfortunately for Meri, this friend took her down the wrong path, and now she has another betrayal to recover from. “Dream Chaser” appears to be still drinking the kook-aid, while “Sam” still mourns for his virtual “Sister Wife.”
