hollywoodlife.com: Kody Brown: You Blew Off Wife #3 Christine’s Marriage Concerns
By Emily Morgan 7:52 PM EDT 05.14.2012
Kody Brown, its bad enough that you feel entitled to have multiple wives and 17 kids, featuring them all on your TLC show, Sister Wives, which premiered last night, May 13. But, if you have taken on the responsibility of “marrying” and keeping four wives happy, then you can’t blithely blow off the deep marital concerns of one of your wives, like you did to Christine on the episode last night.
I felt sorry for Christine, who is the mother of six of your children, including baby Truely, just 2 years old. For many years, she was your newest and youngest wife. Who could blame her for being green with envy when she was pregnant with YOUR baby, while you were romancing and PDA-ing with a younger woman Robyn, who you then married just after Christine gave birth?
Instead of you focusing — as you should have — on the birth of little Truely and lavishing attention on Christine who was coping with her newborn, you took off on a two month honeymoon with Robyn. It’s a miracle that Christine didn’t throw in the towel on the Sister Wives.
On last night’s episode, Christine reveals that her marriage to Kody is in a bad way. They aren’t even working on it anymore. It’s at a standstill. And she is just hoping time will heal it.
Kody finally gives Christine a few minutes to talk, he looks like a school boy who has been misbehaving as he gives her a grin and says, “What are we going to work on? Communication?”
Christine replies to that setback, “It would be a good place to start.” Then when Kody accuses her of being afraid to spend time together, she admits her deepest and loneliest fear.
“I don’t think you want to be with me at all,” she says. It’s a real moment of truth. She feels abandoned by you, Kody.
Kody, you claim that you are excited to go to her house, to see her but then there is tension — hmmmmm. I wonder why? Is it about you bringing another woman into your life as a supplanter?
Christine points out, “You can’t wait until the last possible minute and then leave as fast as you can.” Instead of responding thoughtfully, Kody, you just start making excuses, “We’ve been busy a lot lately.”
Yes, Kody, of course you have been busy, you have four wives to take care of fiscally and emotionally and 17 children.
You decided that it was God’s mission for you to take that on.
But you willingly took it on and now Christine is hurting as any normal woman would who has to share her husband with three other wives — she feels neglected.
“But if we don’t work on our relationship and we just ignore each other and play on our phones when we are together….” Christine replies.
Kody, you can’t wait to end that minimal heart to heart, as soon as Christine admits to play the part in your marital issues, which is big of her, you do your mischievous littly boy jump hypen up thing.
You hop up, hug her , kiss her quickly, say I’m good, “I love you,” and then you just walk off and leave her devastated and hanging.
She and her marriage have been royally been blown off on cable tv.
Gee, Kody, have you ever wondered why all of your wives pooled their money to buy you a high powered gun for Xmas — is there a little hostility going on there?
