Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

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. 

I find that so hard to believe.....not

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. 

Technically. Kinda. Their trip to Alaska was in August, and that is right at the end of the Meri/Sam fling and then something happened that has never been discussed from anyone. Something went on between them that angered JO and made her flood the internet with all the voicemails/photos/screenshots etc. This is also around the time when Kody made a shady comment about "Batman" in a tweet and one of the shows producers followed the batman account on Twitter for a short while.

Meri, in the season when she invited every other "victim" of Sam's to appear on camera, stated that she put two and two together ON the Alaska trip.  That she recognized the actor in an old TV show (that she saw on a DVD rack while shopping in the airport) as the man in photos that were sent to her supposedly being Sam.  If she said it was on the way TO Alaska, or on the way back FROM Alaska...I don't remember.  But supposedly after returning from Alaska she gave "Sam" the great ultimatum of meet me in person or never talk to me again.

The editing certainly makes it look as tho on the Alaska trip Meri was alluding to the fact that she may just walk out at some point...and it seemed like it may be soon. The scene is a fascinating one if you watch it several times and only look at one person at a time.  Kody with his glare-stare, Christine full on "OH MY GOODNESS" caring face.  Janelle semi attentive and later in the talking head only worried about Meri's attendance at Thanksgiving. And then Robyn's complete disconnected fascination of her soup as she just kept shoveling it in. Honestly at this point, what is semi-reality and what is drama induced production editing.

I don't recall the wording, but I do remember Kody making a tweet referencing Batman in a snarky manner.  Also, right around the whole fiasco coming to light, Sol made an appearance in none other than Batman pyjamas.  Coincidence???

Yes I remember the batman PJs.  If memory serves...and depending on how much you can believe from JO and the info dump, I remember a phone call or video call between Meri and "Sam" that Sol made an appearance. 

I suspect Meri including Sol in her delusion with JO was a major contributing factor in Robyn severing her deeper friendship/trust with Meri.  It was pretty obvious (even with Brown doublespeak) that Robyn felt as betrayed if not more than Kody with Meri's involvement with "Sam". And later when Meri became very pissy because she wasn't allowed to pick up Solomon and take him on a road trip to be a human shield between her and (angry) Mariah.

So, Meri said to “fall in love with taking care of yourself”: First of all, that’s weird and creepy. 

 Second, I thought that’s all Meri does anyways—we have an entire topic named for the tantrum she had over the size of her Vegas house and whether or not it would have a wet bar. She cries any time something doesn’t go her way. I’d say maybe she needs to break up with herself versus “falling in love” with taking care of herself (and I’m pretty sure she’s talking about her, it’s always about HER). 

Meri’s name DOES does start with “Me”.

Whatever, Meri. I look forward to another season of the network making you look terrible (because you are, you care for no one but yourself).

Does anybody know how old “Sam” was supposed to be?

I'm not sure that "he" ever stated his age but judging by the photos he presented as himself, I would place him in the late 30s - early 40s range.  Just another feather in Meri's cap, not only was he a self-made multi millionaire, vegan, handsome, athletically fit, compassionate, intelligent, world traveler with multiple homes around the globe, including a subdivision house right around the corner from the cul-de-sac in LV, Meri also gained status as a Cougar.

Her delusions ran deep.

It is nice to know that I'm not the only one who watches one person at a time and then another, in sequence.  I find the micro-expressions, where they put on a careful face 99% of the time but it slips occasionally and you see what they really feel.

Another interesting study of reactions would be the scene on the Plains of Plague when Christine expressed her desire to return to Utah. 

Kody sat there with a smug "I (should have) told you so" expression. 

Janelle roused herself from her normal sloth-like trance to register anger to show support for her commander-in-chief.

I missed Robyn's expression but it was probably something with eyes cast downward, to avoid any possible involvement.

The most telling one of all for me was Meri's head swiveling 4 or 5 times to ensure that she had the attention of whoever was manning the camera and would be sure to capture her dramatic pep talk to Christine.

This is what was so laughable about the whole thing: Handsome, intelligent, cultured, well-dressed fit vegan is interested in ugly, brash, loud, lu-la-wearing, fat Meri? 

Yeah. Uh-huh. Besides the fact the Meri was warned about “Sam”, her second clue shoulda been—not much in common here. She still went for it hook, line and sinker 🐟 🐠 🐡🎣

There's nothing wrong with the girl's ego.  It got bruised a bit when she was knocked from her throne, but she has come back like the STRONG woman she is.  Judging by her Friday night chats with BFF Jenn, she is trying to add comedienne to her list of accomplishments.

She has an ego of steel!

If that whole thing happened to me, I would STILL be under the rock I crawled to, shuddering with humiliation, after changing my name and likeness. But not Meri! She went on to televise/SM even more embarrassing things.

Ugggh! Covid isn't a 'super polarizing discussion' it's a public health issue, one that is far from being under control!

I wish they would (especially a LLR person). Is it one of those things where they tolerate her because she’s fairly high up in that world and then eye-roll when she walks away?

Meri Brown isn’t genuinely nice and she’s narcissistic—I’d love to know what people think of her at these events. Does she craft herself there like she tries to do with her online persona? 

And what does she do about her real face?!? 😂

I’ve been wondering that for years, yet the delusions continue. Remember, this woman was told she was likely dealing with a catfish, yet she chose to pursue the relationship (and then take no blame). 

I think when people like Meri *do* have fans, they feed her with bullshit (for their own egos, perhaps the star will “like” my comment!). They get used to (and believe) the good comments. Anyone else’s opinion doesn’t matter and can be “blocked”. She probably starts believing it after a while and we know she’s susceptible to it. 

it’s also Meri’s drama that has been carrying the show and I think she knows it.

Your comment has caused me to think about how devastating that week must have been for Meri.  The week that her delusions all came tumbling down and the realization hit her that not only Sam wasn't real, but that she was about to be publicly exposed for the deceptions she had been engaged in.  There were to be no private jets or mansions with a younger, handsome multi-millionaire that was eager to sweep her away, only humiliation that the exposure would bring.

Meri didn't even have the benefit of one solid friend or family member to embrace her and stand with her through this critical time, and that's her own fault.  Where were her BFFs (Best Friends Forgotten), like Steele from Van Lady Love, Eliza Furr, and Blair Michaels  to name just a few that Meri has claimed to be her soul brothers and sisters when it suited her purpose to have them in her life, only to be discarded along the way.  Wait and see, one mis-step by Jenn and she will join their ranks.

One child, and she hadn't built a strong enough bond with her to receive blind loyalty and support.  Three sister wives, who interacted with her daily and should have known her as well as blood family and understood her motivation.

What does this say about Meri?  The Cheese Stands Alone because she never saw beyond her own selfish needs and desires.

Yes and at this point I really felt sorry for her.  She lost her husband ( don't believe for a minute that the divorce was her idea).  Kody even admitted to Mariah that the situation was partly his fault, that he could have been there more for her.

I completely agree that the divorce was not her idea but it was an inevitable outcome one way or another.  I believe that Kody offered the face-saving option to Meri saying that it was her idea.  The divorce would have taken longer without Meri's co-operation but no one can be forced to remain in a marriage they no longer want.

I could muster sympathy for Meri being toppled from her position had she governed herself with more compassion to Janelle and Christine.  The privilege of first wife also comes with responsibilities of mentoring subsequent wives.  Neither Kody nor Janelle had any prior experience in the polygamous life and Meri treated Janelle like an intruder in her marriage and Christine with utter disdain.  This I think is what Kody was alluding to when he claimed that Meri had married him under false pretenses. 

Robyn observed this chink in the armor of the marriage and made her move, convincing Kody that her main objective was to create harmony within the ranks.  He fell for it and the rest is history.

You summed it up much better than I ever could.  Also the fact that Kody never put his foot down with Meri's behavior to the other wives.  But also noticed on some of the other shows, the husband often leaves the wives to fend for themselves regarding treatment and hurt feelings by the other wives.  If the husband is considered the head of the house, he needs to make sure his wives are at least treating each other with respect.  Even if he has to lay out rules that all the wives need to go by.  Several have pretty much said, they didn't have time to referee their wives arguments and perceived slights.Well if that is the case maybe you are not cut out to be in a plural family.

And you in turn, dear Pickle summed up the duties and responsibilities of the supposed head of the household in these arrangements.  

I don't think any one of them, with the exception of Janelle is cut out for polygamy, and with her, I wonder if it's just an opportunity to leave the rearing of children and the pleasures of the marital bed to others.  Strange faith.

I don't know if you watched "Seeking Sister Wife" in the first season, but that buffoon Drew Briney was a real piece of work.  It was obvious he enjoyed watching #2 and #3 fight with #1.  #1 finally left (after 8 kids with that toad.)  They (the Brineys) were on a SW episode, so they knew each other.  I don't think Kootie rilly cares anymore (if he ever did) if his wives fight among themselves, except 'don't dare be mean to Robo.'  Maybe Kootie thinks it will keep them busy, and they'll leave him alone.  I hate the fact that Kootie never stopped Meri's abusive behavior to Janelle and Christine.  It's a little late for him to realize that Meri was in fact abusive to them.
