During part two of Sister Wives: One on One, Christine Brown revealed that Kody’s fourth wife, Robyn Brown, joining their family left all of them “scarred.”
Robyn has often been blamed for contributing to the separation within the Brown family when she joined their polygamous family in 2010.
In the second installment of Sister Wives: One on One, Sukanya Krishnan talked to Kody’s other wives about Robyn’s place in the family.
Sitting down with Christine Brown, Sukanya told Kody’s now-ex-wife, “The other sister wives haven’t been so accepting of Robyn and her kids.”
Sister Wives: One on One part two: Christine Brown admits Robyn joining the family ‘scarred’ everyone
“I think that at the beginning, it was really hard,” Christine admitted. “Blending families together is really difficult.”
When Robyn joined the Brown family, she brought three children from her previous marriage: her daughters Breanna and Aurora and her son Dayton.
Christine added that there were a lot of “hurt feelings” among all of the wives and revealed, “We all came out of this scarred.”
However, Christine was adamant that it was never her intention to “alienate” Robyn or her kids.
For Kody’s turn on the couch, he explained the “pecking order” among his wives and how it affected a “new” wife every time she entered the family.
“Like, Meri was really hard on Janelle, and then Janelle and Meri were hard on Christine, and then Janelle and Meri and Christine were hard on Robyn,” Kody said. “And Robyn’s like going, ‘Well, I didn’t do this to you. I didn’t do this. Why are you being this way?'”
Kody then disclosed that other than his first wife Meri, he’s not sure Janelle or Christine ever wanted to be Robyn’s friend.
Next, Robyn sat down with Sukanya and talked of a recent conversation she had with Janelle.
Robyn Brown is ‘angry’ Kody’s other wives aren’t trying to ‘figure this stuff out’
“I want the good sister wife relationship. I know they exist,” Robyn said she told Janelle.
Robyn then said that Janelle told her she’d have to “think about that.”
Janelle, who is “not in sync” with Kody, admitted during her interview that she and Robyn have a history of not getting along, despite her own “desire” to.
“But I’m kind of like, ‘Ugh, do I want to do this again?'” Janelle shared of welcoming another sister wife when Robyn joined the family.
When Sukanya asked Janelle whether she wants a “deeper” relationship with Robyn, similar to the one she shares with Christine, Janelle didn’t give a clear cut answer.
“Yes, I think so, but I don’t know,” was Janelle’s response.
When Sukanya told Robyn that she appears to be the “only one that’s having a fully functioning relationship” with Kody, Robyn teared up when she admitted that it makes her “angry.”
Robyn struggled to compose herself as she wept and rhetorically asked, “How am I going to get through this interview?”
Sukanya asked Robyn why she’s so angry, and she explained, “I just don’t know why they’re not figuring this stuff out.”
Tune in Sunday night to catch the rest of part two of Sister Wives: One on One and hear Meri’s take on the situation.
