'Sister Wives' Recap: Robyn's Secret Is No Surprise (VIDEO)

robynLet me guess: You weren't at all surprised to hear "Robyn's Secret" on last night's episode of Sister Wives, were you? Because of course not. What else could the weepy 4th wife's "secret" have been? Okay, maybe you didn't watch the show yet. Maybe you don't want to hear any actual, super top-secret details? Okay, I'll start out by telling you what Robyn's secret was NOT: Robyn does NOT have a secret history as a bank robber. Robyn does NOT have a sordid past as a stripper. Robyn does NOT have a history of substance abuse. Here's what Robyn DOES have ...

Unpleasant memories of losing her "purity" to a dude who turned out to be an asshole. Ummmm ... yeah, and?? Don't MOST people have those memories?? Granted, in Robyn's case she apparently got pregnant right away and married the guy even though she didn't love him to cover up the fact that she -- gasp! -- had sex before marriage. Which sucks, and I'm sorry for anyone trapped in a loveless marriage for years, but it's the next part of Robyn's "confession" that really bugs me out: She says she felt "guilty" when she got together with Kody because he wasn't her first. OH COME ON!! Stop feeding this "ruined woman" bullsh*t to your impressionable teenage daughters and start teaching them that one regrettable hook-up does not a tragedy make. Ooooh, the whole thing just makes my blood boil.

In other news, Robyn has a big-ass new house, which you can see in this clip in all its big-ass new house glory.

Do you think Robyn's tearful "confession" was over the top and sent the wrong message to kids?

I know. It pissed me off too. Her "I'm sorry. I'm so so sorry." to Kody. Give me a freaking break. I hate the part about it's a "gift" to the man. It's her own damn gift to herself. Stop scaring these girls into thinking they are "unpure" and ruined if they have NORMAL human emotions and urges. At least Hunter had his own opinion about it.

Teach your teenage daughters that one regrettable hook up does not a tragedy make... really!? yeah.. unless they wind up pregnant or worse and yes one regrettable hook up can totally screw up your life!

Wonder how her two kids from that first marriage feel about it.

Oh stop acting like your virginity isn't a big deal. I find people who hold that view are the ones who regret how they lost it. It is a big deal. I wasn't married when I lost mine. Or even engaged. But I was smart and had enough self control to wait for someone I actually love (who is now my husband of almost 11 years).

Mamato2b2g- Totally Agree With You. I Regret Not Waiting Til I Was Married But IT Wasn't A Big Deal To Me Til I Got Married And Realized That I Should've Waited For My HusBand.

The episode bothered me immensely. First off, I actually enjoy this show and make it point to watch it weekly, but her comment about the guy "stealing" her purity made me furious!!! Unless that guy RAPED her, he didn't steal jack crap. She gave it up willingly. Secondly, children resulted from that relationship. Her oldest son is presumably the pregnancy she was referencing while sobbing about the biggest mistake of her life!!!! How in the world would that make her kid feel?!?!?! I also didn't like she felt the need to apologize to Kody, but that's beside the point. She needs to have a good swift kick to the rear for that speech. Horrible!

Did she ever stop to think about how her tearful, ridiculous confession affects her own two children and how she pretty much cries about how having her son was a mistake that she has been forced to live with all these years! She's a drama queen and she makes me sick! Kody knew your cry baby ass wasn't a virgin and married you anyway boo hoo for you and your new house and 15 mins of fame mow please stuff a Kleenex it your mouth and shut up!

I call BS!! Robyn is hardly educated well enough to be a SENIOR IN COLLEGE AT 19!! She birthed her son at 19. I watch this show every week but, no more. Kudos to Hunter for his views on the issue.

Btw She Has 3 Kids Not 2.
