‘Sister Wives’: Kody Brown Didn’t Always Float the Boat in Romance Department?



Sister Wives celeb Kody Brown seems to fancy himself a ladies man or at least that’s the impression a man with four wives seems to suggest. But when Kody started creating his plural marriage, it seems romantic love wasn’t at the top of his list.

Sister Wives: Kody Brown & Meri Brown Polarized Stories

Meri Brown has a very different story than the other three Sister Wives when it comes to Kody Brown. She had him as her husband for three years all alone much like a traditional marriage. While Meri refers back to that time like it was magical for her, Kody seems to have a different take on it.

Fans of the Sister Wives series can remember his jaw-dropping critique about his first wife while in a counseling session in the last season. So, whether Meri’s take on her first years of marriage ring true or Kody’s cutting and demeaning words better describe their marriage, only the two of them know for sure.

But Meri didn’t come into Kody Brown’s world with other Sister Wives waiting at home for her. She started out dating Kody like other people date and she wed Kody as a traditional couple marries.

According to Meri, it was wedded bliss. But, almost 30 years later Kody Brown claims Meri manipulated him into marriage. He discards his Sister Wives marriage by saying he should have never done it.

While that remains a mystery because their stories are so polarizing. The Sister Wives who followed have their own stories on their first years with Kody.


Janelle Brown – A Loveless Marriage?

Janelle Brown came right out and shared – “I know now that Kody [Brown] and I weren’t in love then”. She describes the day they married and for several years to follow. She said it would be “many, many years into our marriage before our true love story would begin”.

Janelle describes how after their honeymoon the two felt “safer” with each other. So Janelle never had that swooning newlywed period. She was compatible with Sister Wives’ Kody Brown on an intellectual level but that’s not how a husband and wife usually roll.

It’s important to have that between them but usually love comes before marriage. Compatibility isn’t something you’d wrap a marriage proposal around. Janelle said that while they were on their honeymoon it was difficult for her to see them as a married couple.

Sister Wives: Christine Brown

Sister Wives: Kody Said It Was Too Soon For Christine Brown

It seems when Kody Brown got a look at Christine Brown standing at the altar on their wedding day, he froze. Kody said he sensed it was just too soon to marry his third wife.

Christine noticed her groom’s face as well. This Sister Wives bride saw that something was bothering him as he looked “morose”. Christine ignored Kody’s gut feeling about this wedding happening too soon just weeks back. But that feeling caught up with Kody Brown as he made his way towards Christine to say their vows.

Kody Brown’s Sister Wives family consisted of only two wives back then. They didn’t even have any kids yet, although Janelle was expecting the first baby in the family. But much like their problems today, the family was struggling with finances.

For this reason, Kody Brown did not want to get married so soon,. He said the minute that he asked Christine to marry him he knew he acted too quickly. He has asked Christine for a longer engagement.  But she wouldn’t hear of it.

She insisted a long engagement wouldn’t be fair to the women who would be her Sister Wives. So, they married six weeks after Kody asked her. Watching Kody looking so unhappy worried Christine, but she was later devastated when she learned he didn’t plan a honeymoon.

Instead of the fun-loving guy that Christine knew before their wedding, he was a grumpy and distant during their honeymoon. So it seems Christine’s marriage started off without the fireworks as well as Janelle.

Sister-Wives: Kody Brown - Robyn Brown


Then Came Robyn Brown

Veteran Sister Wives fans saw Kody Brown acting like a smitten teen around Robyn Brown. After a 10-day honeymoon, they came home still acting like newlyweds. Robyn said early on that she wanted that spark and fireworks with him and apparently she got them.

The other wives were devastated when Kody and Robyn returned home. A couple of the wives had refused to take Kody’s phone calls while he was on his honeymoon with Robyn. Christine, who was pregnant at the time, even left the house for an extended stay away from Kody.

After learning the experiences the other wives had on their honeymoon. Then when Robyn and Kody’s honeymoon was like a romance novel, fans can see how animosity set in. Robyn got what they never did, which may have turned the jealousy on high.

Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12 Review: One Month Down and a Quarantine to Go




It was the beginning stages of the pandemic for the couples, but you could barely tell.

The couples spent the majority of Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12, reminiscing on how far they have come and celebrating their one-month anniversary.

It’s the most blissful all of the couples have been as they relived their wedding days and reexamined how they feel about one another and their futures.

Henry & Christina

Oddly, it took Christina looking back on their wedding day to notice how close and affectionate they were, and Henry was willing to be with her.

It raises an interesting question or rather confirms what some of us have speculated about Henry’s level of comfort with Christina dwindling as the process progressed.

For the most part, we didn’t spend much time with the couple and depending on how you feel about this couple, who have mostly been uncomfortable, it’s a good thing.

Christina Smiles  - Married at First Sight

Henry spent some time with his friend, Kristin, and he sought her advice on how to proceed with his relationship. He shared with her the recent issues with Christina, particularly what she said about his lack of confidence.

Henry’s relationship with Kristin is bizarre, and every time they show her, viewers are wondering if she’s the one who has feelings for Henry. She’s almost territorial when it comes to him, and she was not a fan of Christina at the wedding.

Kristin was one of the most vocal of Henry’s gaggle of female friends who judged Christina before they even knew her. And it always felt a though it came from a place of jealousy or something.

Hell, maybe Kristin was picking up vibes, but she was someone who said she would not respect Henry’s marriage and didn’t consider it real.

Kristin - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12

Kristin’s advice to Henry, while heartfelt, also wasn’t coming from a place of someone who was rooting for the pair. She did remind him that he shouldn’t have to be with someone who wants him to change who he is.

And then, the conversation shifted to Christina’s behavior with production. The series has brought it up and showed footage of it way too many times for it to be a minor, exaggerated issue.

Christina had another one of her moments where she was frustrated with production during the dinner party they had at their apartment. It’s hardly surprising, but by now, it’s difficult to ignore the pattern and frequency or the effects it has on how Henry perceives her.

Meanwhile, Christina spent some time with her one friend from the housewarming party, and they discussed the lack of intimacy she has with Henry.

Memories  - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12

Christina is used to having sex with someone by now, and she’s not used to waiting for a guy to show interest. She also mentioned that there are plenty of men who wanted to marry her.

It’s a weird thing to say for someone who has signed up for this process. It reaffirms that Christina’s annoyance tends to be that Henry isn’t trying to jump her bones like other men, but she admitted she hasn’t attracted or dated the best guys, so what good is comparing Henry to them?

It seems she’s had that epiphany herself, but it’s hard to know if it matters in the end. Christina was amazed watching their tapes and seeing that they did kiss multiple times at their wedding.

They haven’t done that since, and fresh off of reliving the two of them at their best, Christina told him that she would stop comparing him to her exes. Of course, it came with a few comments and jabs thrown in.

Henry and Christina  -Tall  - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 1

It was an uneventful installment for the pair, and it seemed as though they were fine, but by now, it feels like we’re biding time until they choose not to be with each other.

Henry isn’t who Christina wants, and Christina is someone Henry isn’t attracted to, and she doesn’t make him feel good about himself. They’re in the friendzone; hell, they feel more like two work friends who are cordial to each other but never see one another outside of the job getting stuck in a house together.

Brett & Olivia

What the hell happened with these two? Olivia has expressed that Brett is two different people.

Shady Brett  - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 11

She arranged for them to have a meeting with Pastor Cal, and she shared that Brett behaves differently in front of the camera than off.

Ironically, after a glimpse of the house camera footage (rather than the cameramen videoing them), they both seem like totally different people when they forget they’re on TV.

Up until this point, Olivia has behaved as if she’s not affectionate and annoyed by everything Brett does, but in the footage, the two of them were playfully kissing and snuggling.

It was quite a shock considering they’ve had zero physical chemistry during this entire process.

Session with Cal - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12

Pastor Cal tried to dig into Olivia’s trust issues. She didn’t believe anything Brett said or did, whether he was sarcastic or genuine. Their disputes were a reflection of those problems.

And Brett admitted that he is cognizant of the cameras at times; it’s impossible not to be. But he was reminded about how often he resorts to humor and sarcasm.

It was a decent session for the pair, and they seemed to be in a nice place afterward. They enjoyed themselves watching their wedding, and Olivia seemed lighter and more hopeful than she’s been for some time.

They’re still one of the most confounding couples of the season. I don’t know what to believe or think about them anymore.

Brett and Olivia  - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 1

Miles & Karen

Some of the best moments of the season are when Woody and Amani, and Miles and Karen hang out with one another. They all have such an easy camaraderie that feels as though they’ve been friends for years.

And then they suck you into it, and you feel as though you’ve been their friends for years. What also makes those moments some of the best is the effect it has on Karen.

She’s at her most laidback and fun when she’s interacting with the other couple, and it feels as though we see the real Karen and not the reserved bordering on uptight woman who is closed off from Miles.

Wedding Album - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12

Miles joked with the other couple that he doesn’t always know how Karen feels about him or if she’s attracted to him, but there was truth behind those jokes.

It could’ve led to an argument or something between the two, but when they went over their wedding vows later and talked with one another, you could tell there was some progress made.

Did anyone else smile when Miles had his hand resting on her leg? It seems like nothing to most people, but for them, it was a huge deal.

Woody & Amani

hanging out with the others  - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12

Woody and Amani have been smooth-sailing through most of this experience. On the one hand, they’re an enjoyable couple with the personalities to lead a spinoff of their own.

On the other hand, they haven’t hit any bumps in their relationship, and when things did arise, they pushed them away into unresolved land. It leaves the viewers holding their breaths, waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Their bickering about getting a dog was endearing, and Woody and Amani barely addressed their potential budget issues.

Woody likes to spend money on clothes and other things, and Amani has her reservations about that. However, you’d have thought the conversation didn’t happen when Woody went and bought her diamond earrings for their one-month anniversary.

No Dogs - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12

Amani made him a nice dinner, and they spent quality time together. Things like that can be serious issues for a couple if they don’t discuss them and get on the same page.

Bennett & Amelia

Bennett and Amelia have the weirdest, coolest, and the most genuine batch of family and friends imaginable. It’s something about these oddballs that endear you to them.

Bennett and his sister probably had a fascinating life growing up, and you can tell when they talk to each other. But there were some more concerns about Amelia relocating and Bennett giving up so much for someone who may not feel the same as him.

Blender!  - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12

And Amelia’s friend, who was vibing so hard with Amelia it made you wonder if they were exes, was right there to encourage Amelia to lay her heart out there and give Bennett a beautiful present for their anniversary.

Bennett, who looked every bit like a camp counselor, coming into the apartment with a random blender — that wasn’t even in a box — was one of the funniest moments of the installment. Amelia was thrilled to have a blender.

But it was the sweetest when Amelia sang Bennett a song she wrote for him. They’re such a precious pair.

It was also heartwarming when Bennett took her for a walk and told her that he loved her. She feels the same about him, so they’re on the same track.

First Love Yous - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 12

In fact, they’re the only couple who has told each other that they love one another. Woody told Amani, but she’s still holding out.

She isn’t in love with him yet, but they’re on the path toward it.

Overall, the season has struggled with pacing and editing. The installment dragged on for two hours, and there was little substance to support it.

Then the promos tease us with the juicy drama we’ve been craving, and whether or not they deliver on it is a whole other story.

Dancing Close - Married at First Sight Season 11 Episode 11

The Season 1 finale of Doubling Down with the Derricos — aired on Sept. 22 — followed Karen, Deon, and their kids during the underlying lockdown when the novel COVID pandemic initially hit the U.S. What’s more, sadly, it appears to be that various individuals from their family were legitimately affected

Deon said that we go to different places regularly. There’s a sum of 18 individuals under our rooftop. These is some trying occasions. I’m the one in particular that goes out

Who won Love Island USA 2020?




The couples have their last date in the villa before the finale. Pre Credit: CBS

Summer is over and it’s time for the couples to leave the Love Island USA Villa. While usually in the isolated waters of Fiji, COVID-19 forced Season 2 into a newly constructed Villa on top of the Cromwell Hotel in sunny Las Vegas. 

There were 31 sexy singles from around the country quarantined for weeks to entertain us for 5 weeks of the love experiment. While some left in heartbreak, some found meaningful connections that they will continue to pursue on “the outside”.

The final elimination left four contending couples for the coveted $100,000 prize. Viewers watched the finalists go on their last uber-romantic Las Vegas date and were left to vote for their favorite to win.

It’s no surprise who won

Viewers were pleased to find out that their favorite ‘Jaleb’ aka Justine Ndiba and Caleb Corprew were voted to win the $100,000 grand prize. Social media supported Justine’s journey from being the underdog at the premiere to leaving in the most solid relationship.

Even Justine’s relationship goal role model Chrissy Teigan gave her approval for the couple.

While Jaleb had always been the favorite to win by viewers, Johnny Middlebrooks and Cely Vazquez were the first couple in the Villa to make things official by saying ‘I love you’.

Although social media loves Cely, fans can’t say the same about Johnny. As soon as the show premiered, his ex threw serious allegations about him all over social media, leaving fans with a sour taste in their mouth for the college athlete.

It’s safe to say, Johnny lost his chance at $100,000 when he engaged in a super-steamy relationship with Mercades Schell in Casa Amor. Viewers play an important part in winning the grand prize money and it’s safe to say they didn’t want Cely with Johnny.

Carrington and Laurel came in last

While Calvin Cobb and Moira Tumas had recently gotten back together, more established couple Carrington Rodriguez and Laurel Goldman came in last of the four couples.

Calvin and Moira did have instant chemistry at the beginning of the season, however, both returned to the villa after Casa Amor with new partners.

Viewers have called Carrington as ‘deep as a puddle’ and it’s safe to say he doesn’t have a lot of fans after he snubbed fan-favorite Kierstan Saulter. However, viewers do have a soft spot for his southern belle partner.

It’s safe to say that social media is very happy with their Love Island USA 2020 winners.
