'Sister Wives' Recap: Kody Digs Himself Deeper & Deeper

sister wivesWHOA. Some intense, intense stuff on tonight's Sister Wives, you guys. Yeesh! Death. Failure. Betrayal. It's like they've been saving up the drama all season long! Of course, there were plenty of quieter moments of angst to be found ... the low-level cattiness surrounding home design details ("I've always said I would NOT have a sliding door in my house, Kody!!") and the bittersweet memories of Utah (and the Brown family's eventual speedy exodus from their home state).

But really, all that stuff paled in comparison to, say, the bomb that Christine dropped ...

When she looked straight at her husband and sister wives and said:

"I feel like we're failing as a family right now, I'm sorry."

Strong words, but I understand. Christine was feeling especially sad because no one supported her, she said, in her quest to pass the real estate exam. She failed the first time, though it wasn't really her fault, considering the fact that she almost always has a baby attached to her: "On a good day, I feel like I can manage a guaranteed 15 minutes of uninterrupted study," she said at one point, and what working mom can't relate?!

Then there was the especially heartwrenching decision Meri had to make -- to put ailing 12-year-old dog Drake down. And Kody's especially heartwrenching decision to dig the dog's grave himself!!

As for the betrayal part, well, that was more of a betrayal close call, really (Kody ALMOST looked at a model in her underwear, and that is NOT okay, apparently, because Kody is only allowed to look lustfully upon other women if he's married to them). Which still sounds fishy to the likes of me, but at the very least? Those Sister Wives are getting some seriously beautiful homes out of this arrangement, if nothing else.

Which of the Sister Wives do you relate to the most?

"I feel like we're feeling as a family right now, I'm sorry."<----what does that mean?

I read somewhere that one of them moved out and was happy.

A dog being put down should be a family thing, private, not on tv, I hope not to see anything like that in the show again, I will not be watching next week, that was very painful for me and those with me.

there... theresaphilly

I relate to NONE of these women!

Katy Khan

yea  I don't get what you are talking about when you referred to Christine dropping a bombshell...
"I feel like we're feeling as a family"...what does that even mean and how is it in any way shocking?

Lynn Little

What Christine actually said was, "I feel like we are FAILING (not feeling) as a family."

I relate most to Janelle...because she's totally not into Kody and neither am I.

2baby... 2babymomma

@kaerae I totally agree with you on that. I think kody should just be with meri and let the others have their own life but I know that won't happen

Katie Mouch

I can't relate to any of them... because there is absolutely no way I would share my husband with ANY other woman (or man!)

Best thing Kody could do is dump Meri. She is a selfish....controlling bitch!
