Sister Wives patriarch Kody Brown expects his family to adhere to strict rules regarding COVID-19 protocols, but his daughter Truely isn’t on board with them.
TLC shared a deleted scene from Sister Wives on their official Instagram this week showing Christine Brown and her daughters Ysabel, 18, and Truely, 11, delivering a care package to Janelle’s daughter, Savanah, 17.
Christine explained that all of the kids were attending school virtually due to the pandemic in the video.
Christine, Ysabel, and Truely put together the care package for Savanah and delivered it in person to her at Janelle’s house.

Truely and Ysabel, who are Kody and Christine’s two youngest biological children, then had a turn on the couch for a confessional and talked about how much they disliked attending school virtually.
“The pandemic has been not fun, and seeing the family has really been minimal,” Truely told the camera dejectedly.
“And even when we do see family, we have to stay, like, 10 feet apart,” Truely added.
Sadly, Ysabel agreed and added her views, “I’d say it’s really, really hard not being able to hug my siblings and like, Ariella growing up and forgetting cuz she’s just so young, so if we’re not around her constantly, she’ll just like, slowly forget.”
Truely and Ysabel admitted that they’ve been driving each other crazy being stuck in the house together, and Truely joked that she’s “going insane and losing brain cells every day.”
Kody Brown’s daughter Truely calls his COVID-19 protocols ‘inhumane’
When Ysabel continued to harp on how hard it was not seeing her other siblings because of her dad Kody’s rules, Truely chimed in and told the camera it’s been “awful” and “inhumane.”
“Awful. It’s been awful,” Truely said with conviction. “It’s inhumane. It’s awful.”
Ysabel concurred as she nodded her head and said, “I agree.”
Ysabel told the producers that she and Truely didn’t totally abide by the social distancing rule of staying six feet apart from their sister, Savanah.
“Don’t tell Dad,” Ysabel sarcastically told the cameras.
Truely then chimed in and jokingly imitated Kody and what he would say in response to them not socially distancing from Savanah.

“How could you do this?!” Truely said, imitating her dad in her spot-on impression. “Why would you do this to us? You’re betraying your own family! Do you realize that we’re going to die because of you?”
Ysabel agreed with Truely’s impersonation and told the camera, “I think that’s pretty accurate.”
Sister Wives fans watched as Kody explained his logic for separating the family. Although each wife and their children were forced to quarantine from each other, Kody was making solo trips to each wife’s home.
Most Sister Wives fans felt that Kody was defeating the purpose of dishing out strict protocols for his family to follow when he could be solely and unknowingly responsible for spreading the virus among the family.
Last season, Kody’s COVID-19 rules for his large, plural family caused a major rift between himself and his second wife, Janelle.
We’ve watched Kody get irritated with Christine for traveling more than he would like this season. This only added more tension to their already crumbling marriage.
Be sure to tune in Sunday night to see what else happened that played a role in Christine’s split from Kody Brown.
Sister Wives airs on Sundays at 10/9c on TLC and Discovery+.
