Robyn Brown and Meri Brown rounded a corner this week, and it was pretty great. Though it took us some time to get there. If you turned on this week's installment of Sister Wives, no one would blame you for having to check the guide to make sure you had the right channel. I, for one, thought I had quietly gone mad. This madness manifested in a strange way where every T.V. show I watched turned, inexplicably, into Shark Tank. This wasn't the case, but the stakes were just as high tonight for the Brown family as any guest dipping their toes in the Shark Tank. (Friends, that's what we call a dead-sexy segue.)
The family -- minus the kids, who presumably lack all business acumen -- was setting out to pitch their family company, My Sisterwife's Closet, to a group of nattily dressed venture capitalists. Really, it was like something out of Dickens, only the women were even MORE passive (BURN, DICKENS, BURN -- dig that mad sting, you dead weirdo).
Meri was trying to prove to Robyn that she has every intention of going to school AND helping out with the business. Robyn was pretty hard pressed to believe that her sister wife wasn't just trying to ditch her responsibilities. But she had a change of heart when at a meeting to plan their big pitch, Meri broke down at the prospect of having to speak in front of a large group of strangers.
Once Robyn figured out that Meri was just frightened, she and the other wives (plus Kody Brown and his impressive and surely sentient red mop of hair) rallied around to support her. The only tears shed during the pitch were by Robyn, and they were totally passionate tears that just made the group seem more awesome. Sadly, while the Browns left feeling confident, the investors don't seem to think the presentation passed muster. Who knows what the future holds for the company?
Do you think the investors will have a change of heart?
