Let’s see if Tamron Hall asks the tough questions. Following last night’s Sister Wives finale, Tamron sits down with Kody Brown, Janelle, Meri, Christine, and Robyn for a tell-all special on the season. she begins questioning Kody about his willingness to open his home to the anthropology students. Kody was upset to see that the professor automatically expected that there would be stereotypes in each wife, and Robyn finds it funny that people assume that the four wives are expected to make up one good wife instead of four separate and whole people. Christine and Janelle admit that it was refreshing and relieving to hear what the students thought of them. They didn’t know the students reactions to their family until they watched that with the rest of the viewers.
Tamron questions whether Kody was upset that he was expected to be a jerk. He laughs that he is a jerk because he always speaks his mind. Tamron clarifies that the students initially thought he was a jerk because he needed multiple wives to feed his ego. The family understands their misconceptions and was happy to see that they were quashed after spending time with the Brown clan. Yet another Brown family RV road trip is highlighted, more specifically Christine’s disdain for Kody’s friend Ken. Of course, Kody infamously blames his wife’s attitude on PMS. Christine admits that the episode was polarizing. Kody recognizes that his ego may have played into his inability to ask his friend to apologize for Ken’s insensitive comment. Tamron wonders why the idea of the long courtship was so sensitive to Christine given the fact that she and Kody have been married for over twenty years. Kody admits that after that episode he seriously considered pulling the plug on the show.
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for (or at least that I’ve been waiting for…how sad is that?). TLC’s Sister Wives is going to fill us in on the secret behind Kody Brown’s divorce from first (and only legal) wife Meri. I can’t wait to see how they spin this situation. Like everything else surrounding the Browns, it’s sure to be extremely anticlimactic and involve some embarrassing lip sync performance. Let’s find out, shall we?
Because of the Oscars, it’s been two weeks since we last saw the Browns. The episode and season finale (finally!) begins with Meri meeting with her attorney regarding a split from Kody. She reveals that the family would really love for Kody to be able to adopt Robyn’s three children from her previous marriage, and in order for that to happen, she would need to be legally married to him. Aha! That’s it? She worries that should something happen to Robyn, the family would have no legal claim to her children. According to Meri, Kody and Robyn do not know she’s investigating this option. Her lawyer details the process–she and Kody won’t even have to go to court. There will be a ten day waiting period, and then Robyn can marry Kody. Meri’s only fear is that once all is said and done, Kody still won’t be able to adopt Robyn’s kids. After all they are a polygamist family and Robyn’s ex-husband would have to terminate his parental rights. Lots of variables there, folks!
Andy’s shady boot moment of the night was Porsha Williamsthrowing shade at Kenya for flirting with the waiter. Kenya says “I think that’s sad. I was being friendly to the waiter. I don’t think that I’m above a waiter or staff and to be friendly with someone doesn’t mean that you’re flirting with them.”
Say whatever you want about the dynamic NeNe Leakes but she has taken her Real Housewives Of Atlanta stardom and catapulted it into a new career. NeNe has no time for the haters, but she does have some advice for any wannabe Ms. Leakes – starting with Be Yourself, because there is only ONE NeNe Leakes and don’t you forget it! Bloop!
Confronting rumors that she’s done with Housewives, NeNe admits she’s not ready to abandon RHOA and that she’s confident that she has used this “amazing platform” to the best of her advantage!
“It’s very difficult to be in the public’s eye. You get judged all the time. It’s bittersweet,” NeNe acknowledged. “I just try to remain NeNe and be as humble as I can.” Humble is not the word that comes to mind when I think NeNe… Just me?
