Kody Brown struggles with the fallout from his split from third wife, Christine Brown, on the upcoming episode of Sister Wives. Kody and Christine were spiritually married for 25 years when they decided to part ways.
“I don’t wanna move my stuff out. Christine moved me out, I didn’t want her to move me out. I didn’t give her permission to move me out. You know, I’ve tried to give my wives sort of the sovereignty to feel like they’ve got control over their lives, and in doing so, I made it so I had no control over mine,” Kody says in a sneak peek preview of Sunday’s episode.
The clip also features Kody and Christine hashing out the logistics of their breakup.
“OK, what about, are you going to want your food storage?” Kody asks.
“It’s not mine, it was paid for with the family account,” Christine replies.
The father of 18 reminds Christine that some of it belongs to her, but she reiterates, “Just take it, I’ll start over.”
Christine announced that she and Kody had called it quits in November 2021, after being together for over two decades. They share six children — son Paedon, 23, and daughters Aspyn, 27, Mykelti, 26, Gwendlyn, 20, Ysabel, 19, and Truely, 12.
Kody remains spiritually committed to his first wife, Meri, and second wife, Janelle, and is legally married to his fourth wife, Robyn.
Kody shares his frustration over the situation, in the TLC teaser.
“Honestly I just sometimes struggle with the rush, I just don’t understand it,” Kody tells her, seemingly miffed over Christine’s rejection of his offer to share the food supply.
The 53-year-old explains in a personal interview, “It feels hostile to me. I feel like she’s done this as a backstab because she could’ve started talking to me about our relationship a long time ago. And she didn’t, and she drops this on me … and to me it seems really, really rushed. She’s been ready to get out the door from the time that she told me she wanted to stop staying [here].”
Christine explains that the practice of storing food in bulk no longer mattered to her because she had walked away from her religion.
“I’m not part of the Mormon faith, I’m not part of our church anymore. I don’t know even where I stand religiously … but as far as the belief in food storage and things like that, I’m not gonna live in fear like that,” she shares.
Robyn explains the significance of stocking up on nonperishables within the context of the plural family’s faith.
“You know, it’s taught by our church to, like, have food storage in case the end of the world comes,” she says.
Sister Wives airs on Sundays at 10 pm ET on TLC.
