On Sunday’s all-new episode of Sister Wives, Janelle Brown, Christine Brown, Robyn Brown and Meri Brown have a rather uncomfortable conversation about their current relationship and how it relates to living under one roof in Kody’s polygamous palace.
“I feel sometimes like I’m the only person in the family that thinks what we had in Lehi, Utah, was awesome,” Janelle Brown explained. “The living under one house. It wasn’t Utopia, there are things that definitely we need to change. But the whole idea of living together, I think, was so brilliant. And beautiful.”
Before the Browns lived in Las Vegas, they fled Utah for illegally practicing polygamy. While living in Utah, the whole family lived in one house.
As fans know, Kody Brown’s master house plan includes square footage allocations for each of his four wives in Flagstaff, Arizona. He’s already moved the entire family from Vegas to Arizona, however, they all live far apart, in separate homes.
Meri Brown is currently renting a four-bedroom, five-bathroom home worth $861,179. Her home is 9 miles from Christine’s three-bedroom, two-bathroom home. Meri is 13 miles from Janelle’s $347,000 home — which she is renting for $2,900. Christine’s home is 12 miles away from Janelle and 8.5 miles away from Robyn. Not exactly the cul-de-sac living they got used to in Las Vegas.
“It seems like our family isn’t as close as it used to be,” Janelle Brown added. “And I’m really concerned that if we choose to live in the four homes versus the one, our family culture will just continue to drift apart more and more.”
“I want to explore it, all I’m asking for is for you guys to have an open mind and a prayerful disposition about it,” Kody told his Sister Wives in a previous episode.
Sister Wives airs Sunday nights, on TLC, at 10pm ET.
