Sister Wives

I think there have been a few threads about this show before.

Am I the only one who thinks that Kody has stopped sleeping with his other wives and is now de facto "monogamous" with Robyn? I can't stand her. I like Janelle the best.

I think he's definitely more into Robyn than his other wives. After all, she is younger, hotter, skinnier, newer...

I like Meri the best. The kids are cool, too. Meri seems to have a little innocent flirtation going on with Logan.

I think Christine is crazy; Janelle is confusing (if she's so smart and competent, why is she with such a loser??) and Robyn is infantile and infuriating.

But think about how fast this will wear off. She's on her fourth child, and slowly picking up weight. Pretty soon he'll recieve "testimony" to look for another wife.

I can take or leave Meri. I don't think she'd be a friend of mine, but I could probably tolerate her as a co-worker.

I agree Christine is a little flaky, but I don't find Janelle all that confusing. If I had to guess, I’d say she's dealing with some serious insecurity and inadequacy issues. She's by far the brightest of the wives and probably needs him the least, but she just can't see things clearly. I’d be curious to know more details of her life growing up. If the show does anything good for any of them, I hope it helps Christine see that she can easily free herself from that infantile creep who is giving her nothing but grief.

Robyn, on the other hand, is Kody's soul mate. Two dimwitted, juvenile peas in a pod. Even Christine must be able to see that.

I think the 3 original wives should take their kids and run and leave Kody and Robyn. I wonder if Meri encouraged this whole Robyn thing so now she won't have to have sex with him.

I think all these women are in this type of relationship because of major insecurities not all the same ones but yeah.

Don't use pepper.

I've been wanting the original recipe three to ditch Kody since the first episode. They have to have major insecurities if they think he's the best they can do or that putting up with this nonsense is better than being alone. Perhaps Robyn, who is a female Kody, will give them all the push they need to take care of themselves and their kids instead of pweshush Kody's ego.

I also like Meri the best. I agree with you on the other wives. Robyn is probably my least favorite.

I like Janelle the most but don't mind Meri or Christine. Christine might be flaky but she seems nice. Robyn seems manipulative and childish.

I like Christine. And I agree on the three ladies breaking off and ditching Kodi and Robyn.

Meri seems "off" to me when she does things such as pushing Kodi's and Robin's heads together so that they kiss in front of her. It's hard to imagine Meri is truly happy with her husband kissing another woman while (Meri is) saying she still loves Kodi.

Robyn is dumb as a doorknob, and not half as cute as she thinks she is. The other three seem nice enough women, though I could only see myself being friends with Meri - Janelle seems quite insecure, and Christine seems a bit... well... unpredictable and self-absorbed.

I met the original three wives and Kody in the airport a few months ago. Christine seemed very nice, Janelle was a very take charge sort of person and Meri seemed to just oversee the chaos.

And the cameras definitely add weight because they were so skinny!

Honestly, I want to take Meri home and just give her love and attention.

And I REALLY can't stand Robyn.

Janelle was skinny? I can imagine perhaps Robyn and Meri being not heavy but I can't imagine Janelle is truly skinny in person.

I think Robyn knows that she's the "prettier" one among the rest of the wives and shows off with it in a sneaky manner.

Speaking of her, I have yet to see her go an episode without crying or trying hard to hold back her tears over the stupidest shit.

Last I heard they were all on diets and buying a fitness business, no? If they are all losing weight, that's the best advertisement one could have.

I have a feeling Janelle might be an emotional eater. She seems so stoic, and she also seems to be the one ultimately responsible for paying the bills of this huge household. I cannot imagine her worries.

I wonder if she feels like this is the best way she has to hold onto Kodi (sp?) now. Robyn's the new favourite. If Meri and Robyn are friends, then Robyn will stand up for Meri and vice versa to Kodi. The women can run ideas through each other and tag-team Kodi when they want something. Meri's position is solidified as the new Favourite's best friend.

But I don't think Janelle minds working, too. Remember how upset she got after their move to Vegas and not having a job? Compared to the other wives, I think Janelle really enjoyed working and having a career, in general. Can't blame her considering her husband is a lazy ass who only thinks of himself.

Kody can put on a thousand different types of emotions for the audience, but I think he's a lazy fuck who only thinks of himself and practices polygamy for personal gain. He's an attention whore and loves being in the center of it and will do whatever it takes to make it stay that way. I think his mainstream mormon friends were right with Kody being an attention whore--he might have laughed it off but I think he knows it's true.

Janelle always seems to be the one talking about money. Like, Christine was saying in one episode that their happiness is more important and it's just money, while Janelle was looking at her in horror. I think she likes working, but that does not mean she is not stressed about family finances.

They all seem to have a way that they have made themselves important and unexpendable. Janelle is the workhorse, Christine is breeding and homekeeping, and Meri is everyone's support. Robin has an obvious attractiveness that makes her important to Kody at least. I think Meri has become Robin's bestie to make sure she keeps her role as the support system, because she is the less necessary of the group.

I don't think it is a conscious thing, but you have to know as a sister wife that you are expendable. If you leave, Kody is still married and has plenty of wives to cater to him. There would be no lifestyle change if Meri left, just one less home to pay for.

Word to all of this- I want Janelle and Christine to take their kids and go off back to Utah together where they can work, be happy, and free of Kody's emotional manipulation. I mainly feel bad for the kids, who are subject to their father's idiotic whims.

Meri and Robyn seem the most like women I would enjoy having as friends. Of the other two, Christine is flighty and Janelle too serious.

Have to admit I must be a sucker for different lifestyles since I also enjoy watching, 'The Little Couple' and love to snark on The Duggars.

I used to like the Duggars, but they completely finished me off with their love affair with Rick Santoro. First they want you to believe that their lifestyle is fine for them, but everyone else's lifestyle is just fine, too. Then they want to legislate all of us to live their lifestyle. And wouldn't you think they are REAL royalty rather than just Gothard royalty by the way they act?

Didn't the Bates have a love afair with Rick Santorum too? They just didn't have the TLC money yet to follow him around like the Duggars. The Bates that you defend want to do the exact same thing as the Duggars.

@BayLee

You have plenty of explaining to do. Everyone who reads FJ at all is aware of your love affair and supposed "personal relationship" with the Bates Family.

Guess what? Consider yourself caught in your own lies.

Never on FJ have I claimed to be anything other than a 69 year old female. Of course, I know that the Bates are Santorum fans, and so does everyone else who reads her blog. Also like everyone else the Bates are entitled to a political opinion. They were not following Santorum around in their bus, and they haven't written about their choice, aside from once, unlike Josh. When I met the Bates, several children ago, they were not famous. Because I no longer live in the South, I don't see them now, but we still email, sometimes often, sometimes not as often. Now if you want to say I'm a liar, well, I certainly have no way of stopping you, but I have spoken the truth. What I can't imagine is why people are so obsessed with whether or not I know the Bates. And I don't stalk them, either.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.
