I don't know about you guys, but if I had to crown the Most Long-Suffering Sister Wife, I think my choice would have to be Janelle. Sure, it would be a close call between Wife #2 and Meri, but Janelle's always gotten the shortest end of the stick, in my opinion. And the season 4 premiere of Sister Wives was no exception. (And yes, a bunch of other stuff happened with a bunch of the other wives, but first let's talk about Janelle. Cause NOBODY EVER DOES!)
The episode started out with Janelle getting super pumped up about her weight loss -- sort of. See, apparently she lost 20 pounds in 90 days (hooray!) and then hit one of those inevitable workout plateaus. Which, of course, made her sad. Even though, as her uber-supportive trainer explained, she's gaining muscle!!! Still.
Janelle is discouraged, and I can't say I blame her. So it was really messed up of Robyn to throw her plus-size status in her face just because Janelle called the doomed-to-fail My SisterWife's Closet a "hobby business":
"I've been begging you to do the plus-size clothing line -- this is your niche! I know you want these pieces, I know you do ... "
Ouch. Low blow, Robyn.
And it gets worse! Because later, Janelle and Christine get the bad news that they might not get to be in their houses by Christmas -- because Robyn is dragging her ass about some paperwork. (Confusing, I know, but apparently Robyn's financial problems and Meri's overinvolvement at the construction site are screwing up everything for Janelle and Christine. Cause that's fair?!)
SO when Janelle shows up at Robyn's house, we expect the worst -- but no!! Janelle went over there to tell Robyn she WILL be more involved in My SisterWife's Closet ... because she's unhappy with the plus-size workout clothes currently on the market and realized she could use the business to her own advantage, clothing-wise.
But here's the best part. When Janelle explained all this to Kody (who told her she shouldn't give up the business yet) and told him he was right, he goes:
"If a woman tells her husband he's right in the forest and nobody hears, is he still right?"
And then Robyn cried. CRY, ROBYN, CRY.
Sigh. Here, check out this clip of Kody being completely not that helpful and Janelle looking like she needs some Advil:
What do you think?
Is Kody right even though he's in a forest (or whatever the crap he was trying to say)?!
