Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

The thing that I can’t stand about her Friday videos with her friend is all the fake BS

they typically start off with Meri and her bestie laughing hysterically at some inside joke that they never reveal and then they talk in circles and never say anything interesting.. cue more hysterical laughter throughout with no apparent reason for the laughter and it’s time to say goodbye.

I watched a couple of them and they both made me feel like I wanted to stab something… they aren’t witty, they aren’t intelligent, they never have any real tea to spill….they’re just stupid and annoying.

i hate how she always alludes to something stressful or difficult going on her life but she never reveals what it is… just that’s she’s a strong woman hear her roar!  🙄

And yet, Meri's brigade laps it up like a cat with cream.  They really think they are "in on the fun", 

Over on FB, she has her stalwart defenders who think it would be a great idea for Meri to have a spinoff showing her new adventures at the Inn.  They are clamoring for her recipes and want to meet the interesting guests she entertains there.  Who knows, she may become the next Martha Stewart...how to starch and iron a doily to perfection...how to remove pee stains from a ghost chair...how to be persuasive enough to convince people to pay $10. a pop for rice crispie squares.  

The possibilities are endless, she could share with her fans How Meri Gets Her Groove Back, maybe something like Sex and the City on a smaller scale, the dating prospects in Parowan would be somewhat limited, but she's a brave, strong, woman on a mission.

It's such classic middle-school behavior from these two, and I've only managed about 30 seconds of one of her "Fun Fab Friday Friend" videos before I noped out.  It's like you said above - talk, giggle, giggle, inside joke, try to talk but can't because giggles, another inside joke, blah blah blah.  I have to imagine the people that watch these are lonely and feel that because they watch they are a part of the high-jinks and shenanigans.  But it's really just for Meri.  She posts because she needs her stupid ex-husband and her lowly sister-wives to see just how much zany fun she's having without them.  The irony, of course, is that I doubt any of them even follow her or if they do, they certainly aren't going to sit through an hour of Meri adjusting her phone and pretending she doesn't know exactly how to set it up, filter herself into "plastic mannequin" mode and record.  Plus I think she's pretending to be drunk or something to add to the frivolity.

If ever I were a guest at her BnB and she wanted to show me enjoying a rice crispy treat, I'd mime pulling out a long hoomin hair and a few dog hairs for the camera.

I could totally see Meri slamming the door on that lady or any other fan if they are not coming to stay a night or two in the dusty rooms of Lizzies, or buying the over priced crap she shills from the entry way corner. She is some crabby D Lister, now if you want to fan stalk someone, I have the sign up list below, we need to go to Hotel Villa Angela in Taormina Italy, Jim Kerr from Simple Minds owns that beauty, and I am sure he is not mixing up crispy treats in his kitchen

Meri through closed door...What do you want?...

Fan: We have traveled out of our way to have lunch with you and maybe a quick tour of your Heritage Inn.

Meri through closed door...HaHaHa you demented fool this is not a restaurant, go hungry, there is a diner down the street where they serve cinnamon buns.

Fan: Sorry to bother you my Queen.  I am sliding $500. under the door, please can I buy as many rice crispie treats, pot holders and aprons as this would allow?

Meri:  Stand down from the porch and I'll place your purchases out there in a bag.

Fan grabs bag and races back to car.

Meri is horrible at customer service. A more polite thing to say would have been “We would have loved to spend some time with you but treats would have been all that was on hand for lunch! 

Itsadryheat is spot on. Meri is ignorant, arrogant and I’ll add horribly rude and insensitive. Meri tries so hard to spin herself as this strong businesswoman but what she actually needs is some customer service training and a filter intervention. It’s almost as if she doesn’t want guests. 

Maybe she doesn’t. She obviously hates her fans and potential guests.

It does seem that as a business woman though, that Meri could have given a more tactful answer. Something along the lines of, "So sorry we didn't get to meet you. Although we don't serve lunch, I know of some lovely restaurants in the area you might have enjoyed. Please consider booking a night with us on the way home and enjoy one of our delicious breakfasts! We look forward to having you here at Lizzie's!"

That is a lovely response from a bed and breakfast owner to a potential guest!  The problem is, the inn is full.  Jenn and her kids live there, Meri has a permanent room of her own, there are 14 dogs that have residence and one room is untouched, waiting patiently for the day that Mariah comes for a visit.  Bonnie ran the inn.  Meri is using it as a hideaway, which was its intended purpose all along.

Once again, I watched about 30 seconds of the last Friday Frolics, but this time I watched a few seconds, then fast-forwarded and watch another few, etc.  In every single segment I watched, Meri was either adjusting her camera, laughing way too hard, or placing her hand strategically under her chin in an awkward pose meant to make herself look thinner.  I did not hear any actual dialogue at all.  I'm sure there's some in there somewhere.  Maybe.

I just had to share my newest creation I was making in the kitchen while yelling at those kids that are making a mess. I did find a few dog hairs in them, but I picked them out. I made these in honor of Mariah and Audrey for their first date, or was it their engagement, or first time scissoring each other, whatever, its not that big of a dill why I made them, I just did.

I can think of two bonus daughters who could most definitely use some of Meri's attention, but with her it's always been about Sol.  I will always believe that Meri "bonded" with him because she knows that he's Kody's favorite child. She's never shown that much interest in any of the other kids not named Mariah.  And it squicks me out that she's assigning a role to Sol that he can never really fulfil - the person who makes her feel wanted and needed.  That's kind of a red flag, because soon he'll be a teenager who will have little need of her.

I don’t buy it. Meri always has something up her sleeve (in this case it looks like football shoulder pads with a dose of passive-aggressive “poor me this child makes me feel loved”). 

She’s trying too hard to appear happy in a “look at me” sort of vibe. It just reminds me of a high school kid who’s been broken up with and attempts to show the breaker-upper how “happy” they are in hopes it will win them back. 🙄 

It’s hard to trust anything this woman does due to her history of emotional manipulation and cryptic social media bullshittery.

Meri still elicits sympathy from her "loyals" for Robyn refusing to let Meri use Sol as a human shield against Mariah's wrath after the catfish debacle.  She begged Robyn and Kody to be allowed to take him to St. George or was it Lehi??? for her first encounter with Mariah after everything came to light, knowing that Mariah had a soft spot for Sol as well.

Robyn won some points from me for this, she either saw through this ruse or had a genuine concern about the distractions of a toddler and his safety on a road trip, given Meri's state of mind.  Meri grudgingly accepted either AuroraorBreanna as a substitute, but went into full on "poor me" mode once again for not being given her first choice.

Meri probably sees him as a replacement for her miscarried son.  Sol's brown teeth also make Meri's one brown tooth seem like an improvement.  Has he been drinking tea and/or cola since birth?

I do remember that Sol had to have sedated dentistry, apparently due to bottle rot.  Lazy Robo probably gave him bedtime bottles with something besides water.

I'm a broken record.  Or, Meri is.

I thought the whole message was a passive-aggressive attack on her sister-wives.  Sol does everything a sister wife is supposed to do, but better.  Sol has a better bond with his bonus mother in a shorter period of time than any of the older children of sister wives ever will.  Sol receives the infinite and deep loyalty that Meri has always offered that nobody else in the family ever appreciated.

"He's my reason.  It can't get much better than this."  Somewhere, Mosby is weeping.

Ooo drama!

"When people are financially invested, they want a return. When people are emotionally invested, they want to contribute," read one quote she shared, while another stated, "When you're getting yourself together, it gets lonely. But choose growth over company."

Translation:

The family is giving me crap because the Inn is draining money instead of making it, and they won't give me any funds to meet the mortgage. They're just jealous and want a piece of my ancestral home.
The family is also on me for letting my BFFFN live here for free, with her kids. Humph. If they really cared about me, they would give me suitcases full of unmarked Benjamins so I wouldn't have to have strangers in my house B&B.

My BFFFN does all the work around here, while I troll for a new Sam on my computer 24/7.

No one in the family is currently taking my calls and no one answers the doors when I show up unannounced at their houses. I'm also getting kinda sick of BFFFN whatsherface.

then there's blah blah blah hobby lobby quotes

and then:

 "I will find MY tribe, the people who will STAND with me and not push against me. THOSE are the people that matter."

Translation: I'm actively looking for a real (not pretend this time) Sam, but I'm also considering finding another plyg family; one that will let me do whatever, whenever I want and not hold me accountable for anything.

My opinion, not asked for lol 

I think Meri is reliving the junior high and high school days she never had.  Either she was home schooled or she was never one of the Cool Kids.  The “fame” from the show has her feeling like the popular girl in school and she’s riding on it. Not at all normal for us normal folk, but given her upbringing it makes sense.  It’s still not ok but I can see the popularity from her stunted perspective.

Does Meri even realize her actions contradict the things she shares? I see her and her stupid quotes and automatically feel disdain for this faker. If you claim to be yourself, stop editing your photos. Stop trying to impress a man who hates you. Stop faking who YOU are. We see through it. 

To me this whole thing continues to reek of “look at me, I’m doing well without you, looklooklooklook, look at my quotes, look at my power stance, fuck-you-guys-but-really-I-just-wanna-belong-and-am-overcompensating-for-my-poor-self-esteem” blah blah blah. 

I get looking after yourself if one is in a toxic environment, but Meri herself IS the toxin.

It is especially pathetic because they aren't even her quotes, she finds them on other people's "inspirational" sites.  When I'm being myself, I use my own words.

Too little too late Meri.  You compounded your "mistake" by trying to claim that you altruistically remained in the romantic fantasy to save the family, trying to make yourself the heroic savior of the the rest.

The only reason you corrected the behavior was because Sam the Sham was not real.

The funny thing is that with this quote Meri seems to be passively/aggressively encouraging others (Janelle? Kootie? Robyn? Christine?) who have made a "mistake" to put aside their egos and apologize and correct their behaviour.  She's the one who needs to put aside her own ego/insecurities and respect herself for admitting her own mistakes, apologizing & correcting her behaviour.  Not for show, for rill, and for herself.

When they were in Alaska and Meri blurted out (smugly) that she may just be gone one day, was that when she thought that Sam was real?

Fast forward, why would anyone stay when clearly Kody doesn't love her or even like her for that matter. Why would you subject yourself to that? Why doesn't she just pack it in. Move to Parawan and run the B&B and sell her craptastic wear on the side. I am sure rennals in Parawan are much cheaper.

She wants to still be a reality show star and of course the $$$.  So she pushes on.

If she leaves Kody and Sisterwives her money tree disappears. 

Evidently Sam told her he/she had lots of $$ and she was ready to fly the coop.  Unfortunately no other offers have come in since Sam.
