In part two of Sister Wives: One on One, Kody Brown revealed that he’s not on speaking terms with his sons Garrison and Gabriel and said they “need therapy.”
As Monsters & Critics previously reported, Kody and Janelle’s sons Garrison and Gabriel did not agree with their father’s strict rules for the family regarding COVID-19.
In a preview clip of the second installment of the Sister Wives tell-all, Kody revealed that he currently does not have a speaking relationship with two of his and Janelle’s sons.

Sukanya voiced to Kody that his relationships with Garrison and Gabriel have been a “real touchpoint” and asked where they stand today.
“Not good,” Kody said with a sound of exasperation. “Not talking.”
When Sukanya asked him if he’s not talking to his sons at all, he explained, “Well, I am a little bit, like once in a while [we’ll] touch base, you know. But it’s a… um, it’s like one of those relationships where we gotta do a lot of work.”
Next, Sukanya had Kody watch a clip from Season 16 of Sister Wives in which he explains how he was the only family member going house to house. Kody was away from Janelle’s house for an extended period of time because Garrison and Gabriel had “more extended exposure” to the virus, due to their jobs and social lives.

“That’s it in a nutshell,” was Kody’s reaction to re-watching the scene. “I make rules, you guys abide by them, you know, that type of thing. And I understand that these two needed their social lives. I totally get it.”
“But in this case, COVID’s different,” Kody added. “It’s changed everything for everybody and they want it all to be the same and they need to realize that they should go and date that girlfriend – that’s fine – but you need to move out of the house so that I can be home. “
Kody guilt-tripped many of his wives and children to make choices they felt they shouldn’t have had to. Kody made Gabe choose between either seeing his dad or his girlfriend. Gabe ultimately chose to spend time with his girlfriend rather than Kody, a decision that Sister Wives viewers supported.
When asked whether he was “off course” with Gabe and Garrison, Kody answered, “Oh yeah. We need therapy.”
“Yeah, I need to sit down with my boys and get something straight because I, um, I’ve gotten to the point where I’m so angry about what happened – we’re not communicating – and I think they are too.”
Part two of Sister Wives: One on One airs this Sunday, February 6 at 10/9c on TLC and Discovery+.
