Sister Wives star Kody Brown and his four wives — Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn — have been sharing their polygamous lifestyle with viewers since 2010.

With four wives and 18 kids, Kody Brown has a lot on his plate, especially when it comes to finances.

Each of Kody’s wives has done their part to help with their shared finances over the years, taking on different roles inside and outside of the home.

So, which sister wife has earned the title of Kody’s richest wife?

Here’s how the Sister Wives cast earns their money

Meri Brown is Kody’s first wife. They were legally married in 1990 but legally divorced in 2014 to allow Kody to marry his fourth wife, Robyn, so he could adopt her children from her previous marriage.


Meri has worked various jobs since her marriage to Kody, including a part-time stint at a portrait studio at a mall during their courting years.

She has since become known for her involvement as a trainer for LuLaRoe, a multi-level marketing company that has received backlash recently. Meri is a top-tier ambassador with LuLaRoe and has been with the company for five years.

Meri also runs a bed and breakfast, Lizzie’s Heritage Inn, in Parowan, Utah, and dabbled in a new side hustle selling faux-mink eyelashes.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Meri has an estimated net worth of $400,000.

Kody’s second wife, Janelle, was always known by fans as the wife who seemed the most business-savvy and preferred to work rather than stay home and take care of the kids.

Janelle was a licensed real estate agent when the family lived in Las Vegas, Nevada, but it’s unclear whether she’s licensed or practices real estate in Flagstaff, Arizona where the Browns now live. She also offers Cameos to fans for $35 or to businesses for $245.

Janelle also runs a company called Strive with Janelle which offers “body compassion and accountability coaching.” Her net worth is listed at the same as Meri’s, also at $400,000.

Kody’s third wife, Christine, was always known as the mom who stayed home with the kids while the other moms worked outside of the house.

Now that most of the Browns’ children are old enough that they don’t require one-on-one time, Christine has delved into working outside of the home like her sister wives.

Christine also sells LuLaRoe like Meri, recently began promoting Plexus along with her sister wife Janelle, and also began designing and selling jewelry for Kendra Scott. She, too, offers Cameos at $35 for private use and $245 for businesses.

It was reported in the spring of 2020 that Kody’s third wife, Christine Brown, opened a legal business called CBrown Quest, LLC, which she registered with the Arizona Corporation Commission. The business description is listed as “any legal purpose,” per The Sun, but it’s unclear how she earns money from it.

Therefore, her total net worth is unknown.

Kody’s fourth wife Robyn Brown earns the title of richest sister wife

Robyn Brown, Kody’s fourth wife, is surprisingly listed as having the highest net worth of the four wives, at an estimated $600,000.

Other than launching My Sister Wife’s Closet, an online jewelry boutique, Robyn hasn’t worked outside the home. However, the website for My Sister Wife’s Closet has a message on the home page that reads, “We’ll be back soon! We’re busy updating the store for you. Sign up for our newsletter to stay informed!”

She has the youngest kids in the family, with Solomon and Ariella, who are just 9 and 5 years old, which explains why she would spend the most time at home.

According to IMDb, Robyn is listed under the name Robyn Sullivan Jessop Brown and has a few acting gigs under her belt. She’s listed as playing a model in a 1998 episode of Just Shoot Me! and a cheerleader on CMT’s Countdown in 2000.

It would seem as though the title of richest sister wife should go to any of Kody’s four wives except for Robyn, given her limited work experience.

But if the figures are correct as far as net worths are concerned, that means Robyn earns the title of the richest sister wife — are you surprised?

Sister Wives returns to TLC and Discovery+ on Sunday, November 21 at 10/9c.

Kody Brown is a controlling, egotistical person. He acts like he is a king and his wives are his concubines. His inability to move past the phishing incident with Meri shows he is not the religious person he claims to be.

As far as I am concerned Kody just want to be the big man on the block having 4 wife’s and what 16 or 18 kids in total now he is not interested anymore in all the wife’s and kids and only wants his youngest wife and they kids he is nothing more then a very selfish man and has no love or consideration for his children.

How good a man you are is not how many children you can father. Rabbits can produce thousands in a lifetime.
Like a rabbit Kody has fathered all these children then hopped off to see what else there is…eg: Robyn and her children. Some old men who have failed as men, take a younger woman to try and retain their youth.
Kody just looks old and worn out, I think the tv gig is the attraction for Robyn and I wonder how long it will take her to get sick of this old man.

The Brown wives knew what they signed up for when they decided to participate in a plural marriage. All came from that environment. Instead when they became fincially independent they changed and didn’t respect their marriage vows not only to Kody but to each other. The lack of respect Mari, Jannel & Christine have shown to their husband and to each other is disgusting especially since none of them acknowledge their part except Mari who continues to try. Kody is a ego driven man but they knew that when they married him. He is only trying to keep his family safe from Covid like most parents are doing. The rules he gave them to prevent anyone from getting covid are the rules that the CDC put out. But instead Jannel and Christine used it to turn the kids against him because of their own selfish & jealous needs. He’s already lost his relationship with their children and it will be hard won to get it back. None of the wives would tolerate being treated the way they are treating him. Instead they think they are the victims. They have shown no understanding, love or support for his concern about the family’s health. Their only concern is about thieir own immediate pleasure and doing what they want to do socially. He’s better off without them.
