Janelle Brown: Smarter Than Your Average Brown (Maybe)

Recommended Posts

Janelle, dear, the same variety of vegetables will taste different depending on the soil they were grown in.  And FRESH vegetables that you don't cook to death or smother in sauces will actually have a taste of their own.  Celery seed is used instead of nitrates and nitrites to cure bacon naturally and make it taste salty.

First, good for her for making salmon. it doesn’t look appealing, but probably tastes better than it looks  

Now, I don’t understand this woman and the desire or need to “eat out” all the time. I mean, fuuuuuck. It’s not that hard to throw some bananas and apples in one’s bag if time is short. I also don’t understand the need for a cooked lunch EVERY SINGLE DAY. 

i get it. I workout every day and go to work and some days, time is short. I keep cherries, walnuts and apples at work for times like this.  Also, hunger is not an emergency for most people (excluding medical problems). Have a handful of nuts, a glass of water and feel good for not hitting the drive thru. That’s how you drop weight—by not using your fork. 

 

Also is she working from home?  Or does she have another job besides Strive?  No reason to leave home if you have food in the house.  I often cook up something on Sunday and eat it Monday through Saturday, because I don't have time to cook during the week.  I'm away from home 13-14 hours a day with my commute.

So cutting vegetables thickly turns them into "steak"? Pass the A-1 sauce...

Even with a baked potato and garlic bread on the side, I'm just not seeing it.

I've done the roasted cabbage steaks before.  They were okay, but not something I would make again.

I have to give her an E for effort.  At least she tries to eat healthier options.

For a gal who doesn't know her veggies, she sure puts away a lot of cabbage.  Good thing she's got a nice Plexus cocktail to chase it down with so she doesn't get those dreaded digestion issues anymore.

Roasted cauliflower steaks are also really good. I make it at least a couple of times a month. Basically made the same way, olive oil, s/p sometimes a pinch of garlic powder, other times more exotic spices such as Persian Advieh, or Japanese Togarashi, or Egyptian Dukkak. Amazon is my spice friend!!

She moved the exercise bike away from the fireplace.  But, it also looks like they're in the middle of a move - in addition to her being a slob.

Interesting catch Smarty! Can't wait to find out where she's moving to . . . again. In with the king and queen perhaps? I heard they are into plural living, you know, the "lifestyle". Man these guys. Cannot imagine moving this much and the money they blow moving so much. Dopes.

There are other pics - I don't think we're allowed to give addresses here, but it came up easily when I googled Janelle Brown Flagstaff Az address. 

Back yard gone to weeds, screen door out of its track, a bed in what I assume is the in-law unit right up against the stove, bins and boxes everywhere. Not like they're packing up, more like they're living out of them.

At first glance, I thought...Oh she's just being uncooperative with the realtor and not bothering to tidy up, as resentful tenants sometimes do when selling the property is inconvenient for them. 

I tried to give her the benefit of doubt when I saw the boxes in the living room and wondered they were from clearing out her mom's house and she just hasn't had time to disperse them yet.  Then I noticed the clutter and disarray throughout the rest of the house, notably the top of the dresser in the master bedroom and came to the conclusion that she just lives this way.

It seems to me that it's indicative of what goes on in Janelle's mind, on the surface she appears calm and steady but once the door is opened, the turmoil is revealed.

What a dump.  She really needs to raise her standards for herself and her children.  And raise the cleanliness bar, too!

*I'm not saying the house is terrible, but at this stage in her life ("career woman," "tv star," a husband and 3 sisterwives with waaaay better living conditions), she should expect more for herself and her children.  It's kind of sad, really.

Janelle always stands up for Kootie, even when he's an arrogant prick.  She stays his buddy that way, and it IS sad that she demands nothing from him for herself and her kids.

As usual, Janelle doesn’t know how to tidy the place up for photos. The homeowner should have waited until the lazy slob moved out and then taken the photos.

It puts you in more of a squatting position. Your knees are then higher than your hips, depending on your height. It’s supposed to ease the strain of going.

I took care of a woman that had one. She had a high toilet, but she was short. It was comfortable for her because then her feet didn’t dangle.

She had a real estate license. They preach living "the faith". You'd think these two items would give her a bit of professional and personal respect for other people and their stuff. Hope the landlord had a huge deposit.

It does suck to be Janelle, and she sucks, too.  Here's just one reason (besides being a lesser wife to the douchebag ex-brother-in-law and stepbrother):

Unless she is going to buy this house (unlikely, based on price and its being listed at all), she will be moving a third time within Flagstaff, within 2-3 years, all while Savannah is still in high school. 

Yet, they moved to Flagstaff for Robyn, to whom Kody promised that she'd never have to move again.  Janelle got really angry when Christine suggested that the family return to Utah and accused Christine of wanting to be close to her children.  Every wife owns an actual habitat (Meri's in Parowan), except for Janelle, who doesn't worry about the instability it may cause her children.

Maybe Janelle will optimize her finite resources and set up a teepee and the trailer that her sons are refurbishing on Prairie Dog Plague Pass and replicate this rental's main house and guest house.  

Also, the next season may have to be based in Christine's and Robyn's houses or the Prairie Dog Plague Pass picnic tables, if Janelle's next rental is in a no-filming zone.

It's either a Squatty Potty or a step-n-go.  With her complaints about digestion, I am not surprised she has one, but I am horrified it is included in the picture.  I know about them as my daughter and SIL received one as  a gag gift from some friends.

Janelle moved from her first rental to be close to two wives, one of whom later moved.  Both Meri and Robyn had houses sold out from under them.  I am wondering if any of the three owners offered to sell the houses to them.  My theory is that they wanted to get rid of the Browns as tenants, possibly because the neighbors complained about filming or about Brown behavior.  There was a scene at Robyn's one time and they showed all the cars in front of and down the street from her rental.  Janelle said that her landlord was okay with her moving--and, presumably, breaking the lease--but my theory at the time was that she was asked to leave.

It’s a separate living area in the house, with it’s own kitchen.

 

This is the main kitchen:

That is considered the mother in law suite in the house: per the listing "features five bedrooms, three bathrooms, AND A SEPARATE GUEST STUDIO OR IN-LAW STUDIO".  Other than being a big room with a small kitchenette and its own tiny bathroom I usually picture a MIL suite to have it's own door to the outside, which this doesn't seem to have.

Christine is the one scared of toasters.  Janelle is the one who should be since she puts weird things with drippy toppings in hers.  I noticed Christine now has a huge red toaster.  Perhaps her psychologist (or Gwen) is having her do exposure therapy.  The pink elephant in the room is a red toaster that is the first thing you notice when you enter the kitchen and you take deep breaths until you can remain in the room with it, eventually getting to where you feel safe enough to put bread in it and toast it.

I probably wouldn't worry about doing anything to make the house look better if the owner was selling it while I was renting either. On that one I can't blame Janelle at all.  How many of her sons are living with her?  Two?

The owners may not be able to afford to have the house sit vacant and perhaps they were hoping the renters' clutter would distract people from seeing the brass around the shower & closet and plywood kitchen cabinets. It looks like the last updates were done 30+ years ago.
