Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

It’s just so hard for me Janelle being that interested in another person. She’s just so....blah about everything in life.

yes unless she's talking about Kodys hips/ass/crotch

Remember when she was growling and all breathy describing how hot he is *puke*

There's one time when I kind of felt bad for Meri, she has to hear that Janelle dumped her brother because she was lusting after Kodys hips and thrust-a-bility 😫

I wonder if Janelle wanted to be part of polygamous family so that she didn’t have care for a family herself - she wouldn’t be the only wife (and therefore would have to do less to “take care” of her husband) would have other wives to take of her kids. Less a religious reason and more a practical reason. Janelle strikes me as someone who would have been content being single and just doing whatever she wanted rather than getting married and having kids. 

I think like a lot of people, Janelle liked the idea of having children (for the social, emotional and biological reasons), but wasn’t so interested in the heavy lifting of the day to day work of raising children into adulthood. Now Janelle I think always RESPECTED the emotional and physical work it takes to raise children but she just didn’t want to do it. So plural marriage was very attractive to her, as there would be another woman to take on the primary caregiver role, and she wouldn’t have a husband underfoot 24/7. 
 

If Janelle had been born a heterosexual man, finding a similar arrangement to meet her needs would’ve been easier. Men are not expected to do the heavy caregiving/child care to be “good fathers”- public acknowledgement of the child’s existence, consistent financial support of the child, interest in the child’s physical and emotional well being, and some type of consistent recreational time with the child constitutes an adequate father in our society. All of which Janelle would’ve been very willing to do, and she wouldn’t have even had to be pregnant/deliver said kids in that scenario. 
 

But Janelle was born a woman, and she wasn’t born in a time where stay at home dads were super common, so I think she chose what she thought was the best option to give her the life she wanted.

 Yes he did.  I still think that maybe Janelle is simply not interested in any man, not just Meri's brother, and living plyg was a way for her to go the semi-traditional marriage route without having a pesky man in her way every single day.  Purely speculation, of course, but remember that Mariah was also the only kid who was initially going to live plyg.  I don't pretend to know their reasoning but it makes sense to live this lifestyle if you want kids, just not the man (to paraphrase Christine).

I remember on one of the Tell-Nothings with the older kids, Mariah told Kootie his pants were too tight, and Janelle said "ooh, we like his pants tight."  Janelle is nuts for liking that stupid Kootie-Tail!  Or her 'marriage' to that asshat.  🤮

I think he said it when they were buying a bed for her birthday activity after one of their moves.  They were lying on the floor model bed with their dirty shoes when he made the comment.

When Mariah came out to all the parents, she explained that she wanted polygamy to hide from herself or that she expected to be miserable in the marriage for several years before leaving.

I think Janelle is heterosexual (as in enjoys partnered sex with men) but I think she may be a little aromantic or gray-romantic. I don’t think she ever had the romantic attachment to Kody that Meri felt for example. Romantic love just isn’t how she wanted or needed to get her emotional needs met, but she wanted biological children (like a lot of people) and saw a way to get the biological children and have them raised.
 

Had Janelle been born 20yrs later or in a different social milieu she may have just gone to a sperm bank/sperm jacked a guy* and hired a nanny (which is what a lot more women are doing in 2021 than they were in 1995). 

 

I don’t think Janelle is all that odd, in my brief time as an adult (I’m 35) I think there are a lot of women who want to be mothers, but don’t care about men that much (even though they CLAIM they want a man), they spend tons of energy on men that don’t want them and once they get the child/children they want they aren’t interested in men/romantic relationships with men any more at all. 
 

I think Mariah was more an extreme example of that- given that she doesn’t have any sort of attraction to men(or very little the last I heard). Mariah was attracted to the plural lifestyle because the relationships between the women would emotionally fulfill her, the man was just there to provide resources and genetic material for children- makes sense given she’s a lesbian. 
 

*“sperm jack” means having unprotected with a guy in the hopes you’ll get pregnant as the primary motivation for the sexual encounter, I’m not talking about the sexual assault of men or anything like that.

In the first couple of years of the show, Mariah seemed to have a fantasy view of polygamy. Having one spare mom to earn money (Janelle), a second one to babysit and run the daycare/school for free (Christine), and a biomom in separate quarters where she could retreat, when all the siblings became too much for her, seemed ideal.  As she got older she saw the bitterness and competition for attention from a man-child.

Isn't she supposed to be doing some $45 accountability group?

The accountability group should have run from January 18 through February 3.  Then, the exhausted Mama Bear must have gone into hibernation.  She should wake up on February 15, after she sleeps through another loveless Valentine's Day away from Kody and the stores mark down all the Valentine's Day candy. 

Since Kody's isolating at Robyn's, he won't be able to harass a random florist with his "I have four wives!" declaration in person.  Instead, he'll just reuse the flowers and spray from the enormous bouquets he ordered online to give to Robyn and her daughters.

I actually laughed out loud at that.  You'd think she would've been talking it up or at the very least, posting some kind of wrap-up as to how it went.

My guess - no one signed up, she got mad, and has been buried under a peanut-butter encrusted blanket ever since.

  • She's wearing a face mask while exercising for the first time in a pandemic that is approaching its second year?

My FB feed has been showing promos for Kays Jewelers.  I noticed they have a pillow cut ring for about $200.  It's "a lab created white sapphire" surrounded by some other bullshit "gem."  

It looked suspiciously like a lot of the "engagement" rings floating around on 90 Day Fiance and other reality shows.

Usually it's people who hate to exercise that have that mindset, IMO.

I wonder how many steps it is from her recliner to the refrigerator and back again.  

I'm pretty sure repeated trips to and from her kitchen are the most activity she sees on a given day.

Not me.  I sleep like a baby with it.  It is especially useful when traveling, because I can seldom fall asleep the first night away from home.  Not sure when that problem started, but it is very annoying.  I used to take benedryl to get to sleep, but I hated that.  This I rilly. rilly like.

Okay, just looked and I don't have the one she has.  I have a time release one and one that says something abut go to sleep fast and stay asleep

Anyone with an immune disorder should be cautious using melatonin.  Especially with lupus it can cause flare-ups.  It does help most people with sleep though.

So more of Janelle's kind of half-baked advice.
