‘Sister Wives’ Robyn Brown Responds to Fan Backlash for Exploiting Daughter’s Panic Attack!

Sister Wives

Robyn Brown felt the heat after Sister Wives cameras aired her daughter, Aurora Brown’s panic attack on the most recent episode of Sister Wives. Many fans didn’t think that sharing the teen’s emotional struggle was appropriate — and took Robyn and patriarch, Kody Brown, to task for putting her in that position. 

Robyn Brown defended herself on Twitter — and revealed that Aurora was on board with airing the scary episode.

Aurora was given the choice whether to let her panic attack be included on the show.  She just wanted to be able to talk about what it is like to have a panic attack too.  She wants to bring awareness so people are more sensitive and supportive to those who have them,” Robyn Brown wrote. 

Robyn Brown admitted that Aurora’s panic attacks were linked to the family’s decision to relocate from Las Vegas to Flagstaff, Arizona. 

Aurora started having real panic attacks when things got super stressful when were told we had to move.  It was hard for her to think about moving again and she had a lot going on since it was her Junior year.  It was super hard to see her struggle.”

Robyn assured concerned viewers that they were getting Aurora help — a detail that was left out of the TLC narrative. 

“She has seen doctors to help her and we did a lot to support her through everything she was going through. She is so accomplished and still is doing very well in school.  She is my over achiever and expects a lot of herself.  It was a very stressful hard time for her.”

Watch Sister Wives, Sunday nights at 10 pm, ET, on TLC.
