I think Kody wants a monogamous marriage with his legal wife Robyn but he can’t figure out a way to get rid of Meri, Christine and Janelle.

I think he’s trying to make the ladies choose to leave him but it isn’t working and he’s angry as hell and he’s feeling more and more like a trapped rat.

Kody loved his life when he was surrounded by adoring wives and small children that loved their daddy but that isn’t the case anymore and it’s no longer fun for kody... he doesn’t want to deal with middle aged women and adult children who aren’t interested in his lifestyle and they aren’t buying his bullshit anymore.

I think he’d love for them all to disappear so he could just live with Robyn and his small children who adore him.

 

Imo, this is probably the truest statement about these simpletons.  They're all hanging in there for whatever cash they can still get out of TLC. 

So far, most of their children seem to have turned out to be pretty responsible people; Kody and the wives should thank God for that because, as parents, they needed divine intervention.

Interesting article about this guy Brady and AUB plyg life.

WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE SHOW?

"After the show ended in early 2014, Brady filed for bankruptcy with his legal wife Paulie and was able to wipe out $318k of their $402k debt to start again."  Bankruptcy seems to be the go to financial planning for plygs.

"Brady offers a loving take on becoming disillusioned with polygamy and religion in general, instead of careening on a path of misery and disconnecting from most of the family-like Kody Brown was doing on his past season"

"Brady goes on to estimate that 90-95% of polygamist marriages are not entered to out of love, but in order to get power, and make sure they can get into heaven and become a God there. According to fundamentalist Mormon doctrine, if a man does not have multiple wives, he can only be an angel in heaven." Except for kodybrown who LOVES all of his wives🤣

TAXING!

Updated: 13:45 ET, Jun 10 2021

SISTER Wives star Kody Brown owes over $1,000 in taxes on the Flagstaff, Arizona home he shares with wife Robyn, as the family “can’t afford” to build on vacant land they purchased back in 2018. 

The Sun can exclusively reveal Kody, 53, owes $1,058.31 in property taxes, which include interest, on the Arizona home he shares with fourth wife Robyn, 42.

Overdue taxes or is that the usual tax on the property?  Because I pay more than that twice a year on my small home in a rural area with no city services.

Well, Robo had to have enough bedrooms for each of the kids to have their own.  So she and Kootie can suck it up.  They could have made do with a smaller house, like most of us monogamists, but it's nothing but the best for those two lazy grifters.

Go borrow it from Robo's cheerleader Meri!

Yeah, the number doesn't make much sense,  but then we have questioned for years how they do their finances...moving small amounts from here to there and back again may be their modus operandi to look like they actually have the cash...

Here we have the choice of paying property taxes annually or w/monthly deductions.  Perhaps he or Robyn "mistakenly" drained the bank account from which the payments are deducted for a month or two. Missed payments come with interest charges added, fines from the City and NSF fees from the bank.

Gotta give it to the dumbo kodybrown.

His arrogance and grift motivated showcasing their lifestyle for the world to see, so we plebes could see the good side of polygamy. He thought he could control the story, portray a plyg version of Father Knows Best where love is multiplied not divided.

It has been suggested that kodybrown was motivated to embark on his tv career by the show Big Love. If he was trying to emulate a lighter, reality tv version of Big Love, he failed. Unlike Big Love, none of the sisterwives characters are the least bit endearing. Unlike Big Love, kodybrown cannot financially support his ginormous family. Unlike Big Love, kodybrown cannot emotionally support his wives and children, nor can he hide his favoritism and disdain. Like the last part of the Big Love series, the show sisterwives has marched into the plyg dark side shining a light on the foundational spiritual lie that it is.

The Brady article I posted above was interesting that he outed the fallacy of Love in polygamy by estimating “that 90-95% of polygamist marriages are not entered to out of love, but in order to get power”. Sorry Christine, now we know. You’ll never get your emotional needs met from kodybrown or your romanticized sisterwives. What do you have to say about that kodybrown? Probably trust what I say, not what you see.

By ignoring the importance of emotional health and personal responsibility, the kodybrown family has created a dysfunctional environment full of emotional detachment, competition, health issues, failed communication and resentment. I believe the Nancy therapy sessions and Girls Gone Gym episodes were 100% producer driven, not anything these people actually “believe” in. They are all horrible actors.

The fact Brady also incorporates bankruptcy as a lifestyle choice confirms this part of the larger culture of polygamy. Government grifts and bankruptcy. How about stop procreating ant hills you can’t afford to support, a-holes.

kodybrown succeeded shining a light on polygamy, but he couldn’t control the narrative and it’s not the story he had intended to tell. It has been suggested the AUB kicked these people out because of the catfish episode. I counter that this is the public reason. The real reason is the outing of the plyg modus operandi.

I hope someday, somehow, some brave soul goes Deep Throat and details the financial aspect of polygamy.

One of the Escaping Polygamy women did out a lot of the practices of the "church" including records showing tax evasion and money laundering on her way out.  The main character (can't remember names except Kolleen) had her bank statements from when she was forced to start work as a child (I think she was 8) and worked two full eight hour shifts at the Kingston businesses and got to sleep only a few hours each night.  She was forced to fork over the majority of her pay back into the businesses.  And when she left they kept all of the money she had in the bank.  It was horrifying to see pictures of this kid curled up asleep in a desk chair.

Can't say anything about polygamy but where I am from, there are a few tight-knit (pretty secretive) fundamentalist Christian communities. Their churches typically have lots and lots in the bank. From there they are able to pay for medical bills (they're often not insured as it goes against their beliefs) and they fund stuff like loans and mortgages to church members or support those who need it. 

I doubt anyone outside those communities knows exactly how they got their wealth but there have been instances of dodgy tax schemes and 'bending of tax rules" if I remember correctly. Also, it is said that every working member hands over a pretty significant part of their monthly pay check and large parts of inheritances, if not all, go to the church as well. Those who left, have nothing. Are often shunned by 'friends' or family. They tend to speak of peer pressure, force even to comply to the rules and hand everything over.

Churches typically exist tax-free, but if parishoners had their money in regular bank accounts and mutual funds known to the IRS, they would have to pay taxes on the interest income & capital gains.

Maybe not, however…a new sister-wife could be the perfect excuse to write Meri off the show and off the family. And I also suspect they’re completely broke and this would definitely make headlines, more shows thus more money. It would not surprise me if he did this some time.

What I found interesting was what he wrote about Robyn and how she allegedly interfered with this relationship. You’d have to be really into this show to know that she’s 100% sure to do that to protect her own status.

But since he doesn't care about that, it doesn't really matter whether he has the money or not.

We're talking about a guy who has abandoned wife 1, allows wife 2 to sleep in a trailer whereas wife 4 has a mansion. Oh and completely forgets about wife 3!

No Kody in any of the 4th of July pictures. They don't even try to hide that he is never with Meri, Janelle, or Christine. I guess he is living permanently at Robyn's? If he was spending time with the others, I doubt they would hide it on social media.  Janelle even posted about having 5 of her 6 kids with her and missing Logan, but no mention of Kody at all. If asked, they would probably lie and say he's "working".

I'm morbidly fascinated, but also repulsed, because this woman is the same age as his own daughter Maddie, who is also a mother of two.  

I'd want to see the dynamics of Robyn's being replaced as the new, hot wife (Christine never had a chance) and Kody's being a father to young children (I assume) when he just denied Robyn's spirit baby, while the OG wives pretend to keep sweet.

Weren't we led to believe that any "new" wife had to be vetted by the other ones? or some such early sisterwives bullsh*t. Wonder who ok'd this 25 year old, divorced mother of two?

Come on lying, lazy reality tv media, finish making up the story.

Here, I'll start. Aging, angry and balding kody brown, appears to have a "type". Years ago, he permed and highlighted what's left of his hair and went after a younger version of fourth wife Robyn. His new attitude released him from the need for any prior approval from the other "in name only" wives. This is such a delicious fantasy, that we will be reporting this every year until its true.

I used to think Kody had some good qualities. He would make some rash decisions and crude comments, but I was able to look beyond those things for the big picture. I thought he really did want the best for the family.    
 

 I found him genuine in his religious beliefs and dedication to plural marriage.  He appeared to read the scripture and pray for guidance.  The family used to pray together.  He seemed to be open minded with his children’s diversity, respecting their decision to avoid plural marriage, date same sex partners, etc.  He set a good example for Mariah, encouraging her to forgive Meri for her indiscretions.  He seemed to hang in there with marriage counseling, which a lot of people refuse to do.  He supported the educational endeavors of all the kids.  However, he seems to have lost his way.  I’m not sure if it’s depression, stress, middle age, exhaustion, or something else.  While a lot may suspect Robyn......I’m not sure.  I think Robyn causes him a lot of grief.   Maybe, he’s come to realize his dream of plural marriage with his current wives is just not feasible.  And so he feels like a failure.  Were things this bad before Robyn came into the picture?  Idk.  It just seems like a very different dynamic now and not in a good way.

I think Kody is older and overwhelmed. 15-20yrs ago things were logistically more difficult, small kids, housing etc, but emotionally easier. Also when everyone was focused on providing for the children’s basic needs, they didn’t have emotional energy to focus on the mess their emotional lives were. Having 20 children is a lot- physically, emotionally, financially etc. and now that most of the kids are independent- Meri, Christine and Janelle have less reason to deal with Kody emotionally. 

When Kody was younger and had more stamina it was easier to relate to all of the women (physically, emotionally, sexually etc)- now he’s exhausted.

I don’t hate Kody but I think he’s a bad “headship” and a wee bit lazy. (A lot lazy) You don’t get check out of parenting just because you’ve been doing it a long time. TLC came along and gave them financial resources but also less reason to work together (in reality) but stay together for filming. Kody knows that Meri is GONE and I don’t think he minds. He and Janelle are friends, and Christine is so upset and disappointed in him but is committed to the marriage. (At least for now, let’s see how she feels when the show is gone, she may head to Utah to be with the rest of her kids)

Edited to Add- I dont think things were "perfect" before Robyn came into the picture, but I do think there was a more communal atmosphere and interdependence, because the goal was to get these children raised and keep food on the table.

 Meri and Janelle had some deep emotional issues with each other, but they hid it well enough so that Mariah could develop a relationship with the first set of kids (Logan-Mykelti), and all of the Moms really did work together when the kids were little- again because they HAD TO.

I dont think Kody likes Robyn very much, but he would be happy to let go of the idea of a plural family and have visitation with Savannah and Truely sometimes, if his ego wouldnt be so bruised. If Janelle and Christine were to leave (Meri is gone), I dont think Kody would mind. But at the end of the day I think Kody and Janelle will end up together. Robyn may be legal wife but he is going to get sick of her whining and once her kids are raised she may get sick of him as well.

Except that aside from her NYT Best Seller, her super lucrative joory bizness, and her teevee show, Robyn doesn't seem to have much earning potential. Grown kids = no child support. She'll be there until the last dollar is squeezed from the Kody tree. Then she'll probably be a drain on the finances of her adult children. So good luck, kids. That's headed your way.

Didn’t Kody adopt the ones that weren’t his biological kids. If he did, Robyn hasn’t been getting child support for them since that happened. But yeah, Robyn has no ability to support herself financially. Has she ever held a job? She isn’t going to have much in the way of Social Security either, even with Kody’s benefits which are also likely to be small. You know none of these idiots are saving for retirement.

Good points, but I’m not sure how Kody is really okay with not having his multiple wives, since that negatively impacts his status in the afterlife.  (According to how he has explained his religious  beliefs.)

That was what I was getting at. Since there is such a big gap between her kids, once Sol and Ariela are no longer minors- the older kids would be capable of taking care of her. She would likely prefer to be with them than Kody. Aurora and Brianna would be adults at this point- I wouldn't be surprised of Robyn ends up with them when Kody gets on her nerves or passes away first.

Janelle left for several years because she couldn't stand Meri, and Christine served as the "basement wife", taking care of everyone's kids while being neglected herself. It was a mess before Robyn came along. Robyn may have made it worse, but it was bad before that. We didn't see it because I think they put on a better show during season 1 of the show. There is a reason not one Brown offspring wants to live polygamy.

I think Kody is older and overwhelmed. 15-20yrs ago things were logistically more difficult, small kids, housing etc, but emotionally easier. Also when everyone was focused on providing for the children’s basic needs, they didn’t have emotional energy to focus on the mess their emotional lives were. Having 20 children is a lot- physically, emotionally, financially etc. and now that most of the kids are independent- Meri, Christine and Janelle have less reason to deal with Kody emotionally. 

When Kody was younger and had more stamina it was easier to relate to all of the women (physically, emotionally, sexually etc)- now he’s exhausted.

I don’t hate Kody but I think he’s a bad “headship” and a wee bit lazy. (A lot lazy) You don’t get check out of parenting just because you’ve been doing it a long time. TLC came along and gave them financial resources but also less reason to work together (in reality) but stay together for filming. Kody knows that Meri is GONE and I don’t think he minds. He and Janelle are friends, and Christine is so upset and disappointed in him but is committed to the marriage. (At least for now, let’s see how she feels when the show is gone, she may head to Utah to be with the rest of her kids)

Edited to Add- I dont think things were "perfect" before Robyn came into the picture, but I do think there was a more communal atmosphere and interdependence, because the goal was to get these children raised and keep food on the table.

 Meri and Janelle had some deep emotional issues with each other, but they hid it well enough so that Mariah could develop a relationship with the first set of kids (Logan-Mykelti), and all of the Moms really did work together when the kids were little- again because they HAD TO.

I dont think Kody likes Robyn very much, but he would be happy to let go of the idea of a plural family and have visitation with Savannah and Truely sometimes, if his ego wouldnt be so bruised. If Janelle and Christine were to leave (Meri is gone), I dont think Kody would mind. But at the end of the day I think Kody and Janelle will end up together. Robyn may be legal wife but he is going to get sick of her whining and once her kids are raised she may get sick of him as well. 

I agree with all you say.  But it’s left Kody with a simmering ugly anger.

And I am enjoying watching this breathing ego's transformation.

It sure has. And he doesn’t seem to mind showing it. 

This season we got to see the ugly side of things and Kody is finally showing how he actually feels about it all.
