‘Sister Wives’ Meri Brown Is Moving to Utah and Robyn FREAKS OUT!
In a sneak peek preview of Sunday’s episode, Meri Brown reveals her plan to shift her online clothing business to Utah and away from Flagstaff, Arizona, the home base of her estranged spiritual husband, Kody Brown.
Meri tells Robyn — “I’ve been thinking about it for a long time and trying to figure out what to do, especially in the last year since (my) mom passed, like how to run the (bed and breakfast) and what to do with it. It’s been a lot of work going back and forth trying to keep that up.”
Robyn replies, “I bet,” before Meri goes on to describe the challenges that come with maintaining two home fronts.
“But whenever I’m up there (in Utah), I can’t do my clothing business, so I’ve been trying to figure out how to make it all work together,” she says.
Meri explains — “I am going to be moving out of this house and moving the business up there, but I will be downsizing here.”
Robyn appears concerned when she asks — “OK, where are you going to be moving?”
The footage jumps to Meri telling cameras — “I don’t think (Robyn is) liking it.”
Robyn admits in her own confessional spot — “I guess I’m just kind of double checking, going, ‘This is where you live, though. This is home. This is gonna stay home, right?’”
Robyn seeks clarification, asking — “What does that mean when you say you’ll be there more?”
Meri explains — “It will be longer chunks of time and I’ll come back here when I’m needed to be here.”
Meri questions how her decision could further shift the family dynamic in the wake of Kody’s split from third wife, Christine, and his separation from second wife, Janelle.
Meri wonders in a confessional — “What’s gonna happen with my relationship with Robyn and her kids and even the potential of any possibility that might happen with Kody?”
Meri tells Robyn that her decision to relocate needed to happen. Robyn nods in agreement, but opens up about her real feelings in a personal interview.
“From everything that’s happening right now in the family with Kody and Janelle, I feel unsteady. And in all reality, Kody is even being different. I don’t feel very steady, even with him,” the mom of five says.
Robyn reflects back on her friendship with Meri, especially in the months since the implosion of their plural family.
She shares — “But Meri and I always have had this steadiness between the two of us. And through everything that’s been happening, it’s like at least I could go to her and look at her in the eyes and say, ‘We’re here for each other, right? We’re gonna stick this out, right? Let’s not give up, OK?”
The TLC show featured Meri explaining why she wanted to spend more time in Utah, during last week’s episode.
Meri said — “I’m honestly in just this really weird situation. I don’t really have much of a reason to be in Flagstaff, except for the fact that I’d really like to heal my marriage. I mean, basically it’s Robyn and her kids that I see and have a relationship with.”
Meri and Kody announced that they were officially ending their marriage in January.
