Becca is a Senior Editor for All About The Tea. She's a coastal girl who loves the outdoors, and writing about the sneaky and silly side of reality TV. Her bio is short, but her snark is endless. She loves writing for the sharpest posters in the world.


TLC’s Sister Wives is back in damage control mode, as the network and the Browns scramble to nail down a believable spin on the latest scandal to rock the plural family. 

Meri Brown was recently “catfished” by Jackie Overton, a chunky, Shidler, Oklahoma bottom feeder, who wooed and snagged a vulnerable, and gullible discarded wife. Overton is believed to have compiled a long list of victims, and her modus operandi is sinister and vicious. She continues to publicly toy with Meri, via her “Sam Cooper” blog, as the Browns and TLC navigate through the murky, complicated mess.

Jackie can’t claim all of the shady kudos in the Overton family, because her own 63-year-old mother has an active warrant for her arrest, in Kay County, Oklahoma.

Did Jackie Overton learn her tricks from a skilled pro? Deception? Check. Exploiting a needy, television personality for a prolonged bask in the spotlight, is a no brainer. Could intimidation be going on in the shadows even now, as the seedy drama shakes out, and TLC contrives a storyline to sell to a sucker audience?  Stay tuned.
