Sister Wives

Robyn is far from a trophy wife. She came with major baggage-kids, debt, no education, no job skills, no business sense, no way to generate income for the family and she already failed at her first marriage. I love how she believes in keeping the spark alive for the entire marriage but she couldn’t the first go round! She isn’t half as pretty as the other wives. I hate talking about peoples looks. But that woman looks like a wicked witch and has a bony teenage boy looking body. I’d take the soft curves of Christine and her genuine sweetness over Sobbin Robyn any day. Who is with me?
I feel like Kody is  a pimp for Meri. That is his girl and he gets Janelle to pay her bills. LOL
Meris insistence on equal square footage when there are TWENTY TWO people in the family and the home only needs to shelter TWO of them is *EXTREMELY TELLING* of the family dynamics. I think that is why it’s talked about so often. These women do NOT get along. They are competing with each other and always fighting for their fair share of the pie. What a miserable way to live. Grow up, Meri. You have ONE child and she is nearly an adult. You’ll never have another child and empty rooms wont quell your “pain!” Oh, wait! I’ve already figured out that you’re long over the baby thing. You LOVE the freedom you have and you rub your NICE THINGS in the other wives faces. I loved Sobbin Robyn’s passive=aggressive comment about how if Meri had more children then maybe she wouldn’t have such nice things.  Real classy, Robyn.  Meri,  I am on to you. You’re totally content NOW with having one child. You’re just using that as your way or getting attention and sympathy. Booh hoo. No wonder your daughter acts like a huge baby. She gets it from her mother. Any sensible woman would say, “Since it’s just Mariah and me and she is almost grown, I would be content with a three bedroom house. After all, the mortgage wont be paid off until thirty years from now. I certainly dont need a huge empty house for the next thirty years. So go ahead and do your thing, guys. Any bigger would just be a waste of space, money, taxes, utilities, furniture and upkeep.” Then again, by the time I am Meris age, my mortgage will be completely paid off. And we live totally debt free. I can not relate to this gimmie-gimmie- gimmie lifestyle even-though-I-cant-afford-it. I find so much peace and freedom in living below our means. I think this family is in desperate need of sound financial and life coaching advice and then they need to follow it. They make tremendous foolish decisions, one right after another.
It’s EXTREMELY common for these plig families to marry siblings. It would be even considered the natural progression for Kody to marry Taralyce. Go for it, Kody! Then Sobbin Robyn will get a taste of what your marriage to her did to Christine. Both wanted to be the “last wife.” Not likely my dears, not likely. As long as Kody is able to physically walk down the isle, he will be marrying. It isn’t about you guys, ladies. It’s about Kody. Make no mistake.
My only question about this arrangement is, who the heck is funding Taralyces life? Robyn does not work. She is sponging off of Janelle. So is Taralyce also sponging off of Janelle? I think Janelle is about one wife away from the looney bin! How much more financial and emotional stress can this woman be forced under before she cracks and mentally has a break down?! Sobbin Robyn feels entitled to pop our babies that she has no means to care for while other people, whether it be the tax payer, her sister or her sister wives take care of. She takes no responsibility for any of her actions. From creating life to paying for goods and services she has received. She is highly irresponsible yet she whines and cries about having to pay her own bills for a short stint in her life. Poor baby. You had to pay your own bills? How painful for you! Let me shed a tear with you-not.
The credit repair segment was misleading. Misleading as TLCS other show-Extreme Couponing. As likely as my local store is to take coupons like they do on that unrealistic show is as likely as any viewer will be to get a $4,000 debt “deleted” from their credit record. Paying your debts does NOT mean the creditor is obligated to delete the information from your file. In fact, that is extremely rare for them to do so. Think about it, why WOULD they delete the information? Paying off the debt doesn’t mean it wasn’t ever in default. And who the hell goes to a LAWYER for  information that you can find online for free?
Mariah is a beautiful young lady. However, she is far too young to be that heavy already. Her weight is a symptom of a deeper issue. I hope she gets in therapy but I doubt the mental health of their children is a top priority for this self-indulgent clan.
The looooong drawn out “were we approved or were we not”  is an indication that TLC is scrambling for a storyline. Anyone can be approved for a loan. That is not an accomplishment. What REALLY matter are the terms. “You got approved.” Big deal. That is meaningless. Are you approved at 6% interest with 20% down? Or 20% interest with 50% down? With no steady income, moving recently and poor credit, it’s time to get settled in affordable housing, get jobs and slowly and steadily improve your credit and save for a down payment. It’s not the time to move out of a home that you’re already buying, from a location where you have steady jobs to an economically depressed area that is #1 in foreclosures. Oops! Too late.
The Sister Wives Closet. I shudder just typing that. These women dress like they shop at Walmart or the Goodwill. As Seinfield would say, “Not that there is anything wrong with that.” But why would viewers be compelled to want to shop in their virtual closet? Whispering: they have no taste. The web site is generic. The products are scare, tacky and look very similar as to what I would expect to encounter at my local flea market.
Remember Fundamental Fitness? That flopped before it started and as of 11/23/12 on http://www.kodybrownfamily.com they have a dead link to http://www.thefundamentalfitness.com. So I’d say getting at least their up and sometimes running web site http://www.mysisterwivescloset.com filled with mostly “coming soon” signs IS a marked improvement. However, whatever they spent to create the web site and the jewelry wont be recouped in sales because nobody is visiting their web site.
A business that doesn’t generate any income? A front of a business in order to lower their income tax bracket? That is just what FLDS are known for doing! A fraudulent front of a  business is as common in their culture as apple pie is in mine. The FLDS even have a water company that exists only on paper! The Browns make sure their taxable income is low enough so they can qualify for those food stamps. I am confident TLC is paying Kody Brown and not the women.  And with a “business” they can say they’re “working.” So the “business” does reward them in many ways, even if income is not one of the benefits. I read Sam Brower’s book detailing his seven year investigation into the FLDS subculture entitled “Prophet’s Prey” and so I am onto the whole FLDS business front. It’s sadly extremely common in their community. This isn’t by chance. This is purposeful and their way of life.
