One by one the people associated with “Sister Wives” patriarch Kody Brown either by marriage or by birth are getting fed up with his incessant bad attitude towards them. It’s a well-known fact that Kody has never been a present dad in the lives of his kids except the five kids he shares with his last wife standing Robyn Brown. Now, it seems like the rest of the 13 children have made a decision that since they’ve made it this far without Kody, they might as well move on without him.
In a new trailer for the upcoming season 18 of the TLC show “Sister Wives,” viewers caught a sneak peek of what has been going on in the polygamous family since Kody’s first three wives left him.
In the clip, Janelle Brown, Christine Brown, Gwendlyn Garrison Brown, and Gabe Brown, can be seen as they all discussed the strain Kody’s absence has in their lives but suddenly, Garrison who seemed to have had enough of it all sparked, “You know what Robyn? Have him. We’re all grown adults who don’t need a father figure anymore.”
Gwendlyn and Gabe were shown nodding in approval because it’s about time they faced the reality that there is no father figure in their lives, there never has been anyway.
Sister Wives — Kody Call Himself ‘The Devil’
Kody himself is well aware of the fact that he’s a shitty father but the shocking thing is that he’s not at all bothered by that.
Last year, during a September 11, 2022 episode of Sister Wives, Kody boldly shared how he doesn’t find it important to make out time and father his kids —from the adult ones down to the little ones. In the clip, Kody claimed he is always busy and would prefer paying someone else to do his job for him.
According to Kody, “It’s not normal for me to babysit my kids, I’ve been working all my life. I was raised on a ranch, we were always busy.” Now, the question on everyone’s mind would be why would someone call parenting his own children babysitting? Only an irresponsible dad would say that about his own children.
Kody continued by saying “I’m good at watching my kids, but I almost never do it. It’s easier for me to pay somebody 20 bucks an hour than to lose $200 an hour with the business that I have at hand.”
A different scene from the new trailer showed Kody playing the victim card, claiming to have done everything in his power for his family but nothing worked out. He said, “I worked so hard to do what was right and when you lost that, well, I should just be the devil I think I am now.”
Sister Wives — Kody Plays Favoritism
The ever-loyal viewers of the reality tv show can attest to how Kody’s first three ex-wives kept on complaining about how Kody plays favoritism when it comes to Robyn and her five children.
Even, the last straw that broke the camel’s back for Christine which led her to conclude that she can no longer stay married to Kody was the Covid—19 incident when Kody blatantly refused to accompany their daughter Ysabel to the hospital for her scoliosis surgery just because he didn’t want to travel during the pandemic.
Christine said, “I really find it hard to stay with a guy who I don’t respect, I understood COVID, and why he couldn’t come, but she didn’t. And she still has a really hard time with it.”
She went on to say that the incident was “a good wake-up call” to her although, “In the end I would’ve preferred to have him there, of course, because it’s what Ysabel needed, but I didn’t need him anymore.”
If a bet of $50K were to be placed that, had the surgery been for one of Robyn’s children, would Kody still decline to be present or would he put everything on hold for the said child, it’s obvious that the winner of the bet would be someone who bets on the latter.
Even during the pandemic, Kody chose to self-isolate with only Robyn and her children because according to him they were the only people that obeyed the strict rules he laid down for his family during the pandemic. As usual, that attitude created a lot of drama in the family.
