Sister Wife fans are flying off the handle over main tea Meri and Janelle Brown threw up during Season 17 Episode 12, “Life After Polygamy.” The women made it clear that their earnings funded Robyn Brown’s lavish lifestyle. In turn, viewers took to social media to call Kody Brown’s fourth wife “ungrateful” and “fatiguing,” claiming that her home and family are Brown’s biggest income drain.
Janelle Brown blew up the Brown family’s financial facade in episode 12
In the latter part of episode 12, the focus was on Janelle and her desire to build on the family property Coyote Pass. Her frustration with Kody was evident as she admitted in a confessional that she was using her finances and purchasing power to get what she wanted.
“He doesn’t listen at all to why I can’t do it or I don’t want to do it,” Janelle says of Kody, after he pressured her into buying ex-wife Christine’s house as a real estate investment. “It’s almost like he feels like if he keeps telling me, he’s going to roll me over and I’m going to reach out and say, ‘OK, we’re going to do it.’
Janelle admitted that she used the proceeds from the sale of her Las Vegas home to help Robyn get her home in Flagstaff, AZ. Her wife, Meri Brown, admitted to doing the same. The clan also added money from the family’s joint account.
Kody’s second wife also clarified that her husband’s claim that he and Robyn paid the down payment on Christine’s house is untrue. Janelle stated that the money in their joint account helped Christine.
Fans flew off the handle, called Robyn Brown ‘ungrateful’ and ‘ungrateful’
Fans flew off the handle in a Reddit post after hearing the news. They called Robyn “ungrateful” and “ungrateful” for everything that has been done for her since she joined the Brown clan.
“Why is Robyn so ungrateful and unappreciative of the OG wives who give her an amazing lifestyle? For someone who came up with nothing to offer but a ‘cap in hand’ she seems incredibly entitled to everything the other wives have given her,” one fan wrote. “Did Robyn ever say thank you for everything you guys have given me? She acts like she owes him a free McMansion, a free babysitter, and free cars for her and her kids. It’s so bizarre to me.”
A second fan noted, “I come with all the baggage too; three kids, debt and a messy divorce. I wrested that title of legal wife right from Meri. She secures her place by producing two more children. Now look at her, the queen of Coyote Pass with a fool pretending to be king.
“Robyn will never be happy. She’s a perpetual victim who ties her happiness to things — whether it’s clothes, a house, or stupid figurines — and can’t be satisfied unless she gets the result she wants,” wrote a third Reddit user.
“Yeah, Robyn’s statement about how they all helped with the finances, raising the kids, etc. was interesting. What exactly did she help with financially? And she didn’t help raise anyone’s children. Apparently she can’t even grow her own! And the family pays for her children’s school and her huge house? Janelle better get out of there as soon as she gets her stuff back,” claimed a fourth frustrated viewer.

The real Janelle continued to highlight what she called excessive spending in the Brown household. She also admitted to living frugally.
“I’m the one who pays the accountant’s fees. I see how the money from the family account has been scattered.” She said, “there was enough money outside of debt and our daily expenses spent on other things “that could have been used to pay off the family property”.
Janelle’s frustration with Kody is evident in an upcoming episode titled “Coronapocolypse.” She and Kody fight and he states, “Maybe this isn’t right. Maybe that’s not working.” He adds, “We seem to be getting along.”
Kody then compared his relationship with Janelle to being married to Robyn. He said, “I have someone in my life who is fundamentally loyal to me,” prompting Janelle to reply, “I’m not going to become Robyn.”
Sister Wife airs Sundays at 10pm EST on TLC.
