TLC is offering a special tag-on special on this week’s installment of Sister Wives.
“Catching The Catfisher,” airs this Sunday, and Meri Brown shared about her participation in the special, via Twitter.
Nev Schulman, host and executive producer of the MTV reality show Catfish, is also expected to offer insight into the online phenomenon.

The sneak peek reveals Mare talking about her relationship with “Sam Cooper” — one she describes as flirty turned scary. A ringer of a stunt double plays the knuckles and hairline-edge of “Oh Sam” Cooper. Some blurred mystery hands, an ear, and some skilled texting thumbs, also make cameos.
Mare notes feeling “an affection” for her new online pal, and some mutual flirtation. Mare muses that perhaps in a different place, or time [maybe by the end of the filming season?] the couple could have had a “relationship.” The narrator speaks of a pattern that Meri alleges as a string of broken arranged meetings with Fish.
A woman by the name of Jackie Overton is believed to be the woman behind the sham, and Meri speaks of meeting the unnamed deceiver as another identity — “Sam’s” best friend “Lindsay.”

I just got the creeps from her. But I’m sitting here trying to be nice from her, because this is a friend of his.”[/otw_shortcode_quote]
Perhaps viewers will learn why Meri chose to pursue meeting “Sam,” while supposedly communicating that “nothing’s happening” towards advancing a love relationship. Meri mentions that “Sam” has a southern accent. Fish recently offered a recorded interview on his blog, which could reveal the drawl that swept Mare off her feet.
Below listen to audio of the catfisher, “Sam Cooper,” talking with a southern accent about Meri Brown:
Will Meri finally address the voicemails, photos, and exit strategy that evolved from the affair? Mare managed to contradict herself, within one three minute clip. Will she truly be honest, in an attempt to protect others from being drawn down the same slippery, banana peel strewn path?
