Kody Brown took offense when Sister Wives: One on One host Sukanya Krishnan accused him of “abandoning” his wives and explained why he’d never get back together with his first wife, Meri.

Sister Wives fans know that Meri and Kody’s marriage has struggled for years and things came to a head last season when Kody admitted withholding sex and romance from Meri.

Despite Kody’s mistreatment and refusal to be intimate or romantic with Meri, she stands firm that she’ll never leave his side.

Kody Brown ‘doesn’t see’ himself getting back together with Meri

Now, in a clip from Sunday’s tell-all as shared by ET, Kody explained to host Sukanya Krishnan why he’ll never try to repair his spiritual marriage to Meri.

“Alright, so Kody, tell me about your relationship with Meri,” Sukanya said to Kody in the clip, not wasting any time getting down to the nitty-gritty.

“Um, there’s just nothing to talk about, really,” Kody admitted, shaking his head. “We’re just like friends. Listen, there was a hardness in our marriage that was so difficult and so antagonistic that I didn’t know why we were in it.”

Kody then admitted that it took lots of time and counseling to realize that he doesn’t see himself and Meri getting back together.

“I just don’t see us getting back together,” Kody revealed. “And why aren’t we getting back together? Because we will go back to the way we were before. There’s just no chance that I ever want that again.”

When Sukanya asked Kody why he wouldn’t just leave Meri then, he said, “It’s a double standard. They can leave whenever they want. I can’t.”

Sukanya tried to call out Kody on his statement, telling him, “It is not a double standard because you emotionally have left and abandoned them in some ways, right?”

Kody did not take the term “abandoned” well and fired back at the hard-hitting tell-all host.

“Well, uh, Abandoned?! Please! Take the word back because I take offense to that word of abandonment,” Kody angrily replied to Sukanya before explaining that he feels it was Meri who did the abandoning in their marriage.

“When Meri had an affair, she was leaving my a** cuz she was like, ‘I’m done with this, I am done with you, I am done.’ She made it clear to everybody that she was getting out of there. She was done with us and she can’t admit it now.”

Kody continued, “She was leaving me for a better, richer man. And because we did that, in her own mind she doesn’t even realize what happened. She sees herself as a victim – which is true – but that she had done nothing wrong. And she wouldn’t have even been the victim if she didn’t do something wrong.”

For her turn on the couch with Sukanya, Meri claimed that the catfishing incident was not the “defining moment in the fracture” of their marriage.

There is obviously plenty more to unpack during part one of Sister Wives: One on One, so be sure to tune in and catch the rest Sunday night.

Sister Wives: One on One airs this Sunday, January 30 at 10/9c on TLC and Discovery+.

Kody don’t flatter yourself you ass! You did abandon all three of your wives and innocent children. Truth hurts and that’s why it offends you. The guilt of what you’ve done will haunt you the rest of your f-up life. And you can thank Robin for all of it! I feel this show needs to abandon you and Robin from being on. It would be refreshing to see only the three women on without you and her. Robin is a morbid psycho woman who feels the need to control everything she does. Well it didn’t work or stop Christine from leaving and she could care less what you feel , think or want. Robin will never have you bring in other wives either. She is working super hard to make sure Janelle and Meiri leave for good too. Your reputation and Robins smells as bad as a rotten egg. Reboot the show and make it about….. Abandoned Sister wives! Let them tell the real truth about wasted years and fear of his mental abusive ways.

You never wanted any of them except “ROBIN”. She has always been number one. That is why you and robin talked Meri into giving you a divorce so that Robin would sure be your number one. I hope Meri and Christine never goes back to that circus.
