“Ssiter Wives” star Kody Brown is now feeling a little embarrassed after two of his four wives left him, In Touch Weekly wrote in a new report. Kody is still in a relationship with his first wife Meri and fourth wife Robyn, but his second wife Janelle and third wife Christine have left the family.
Kody, 53, is “embarrassed” that he’s lost half his wives, but he’s not “shocked,” an insider told In Touch Weekly. “He admitted their version of polygamy was dysfunctional,” they told In Touch.
Kody married Meri in 1990 and they welcomed a child together. He then married Janelle in 1993 and they have six children. In 1994, Kody married Christine and they also have six children. In 2014, Kody legally divorced Meri so that he could marry Robyn and adopt her three children from a previous relationship. They had two children together, making Kody a father of 18 children.
But after almost 26 years of marriage, Christine decided to leave the family in November 2021. The grumbling began to turn when Janelle also dropped out, and both he and Janelle confirmed they were “broken up” in a preview for “Sister Wives’ “One on One” special, which premieres Dec. 18 target.
Janelle and Kody were together for 29 years.
Janelle said there was a “rift” between her and Kody
Janelle referred to Kody as her “best friend” on an episode of Sister Wives, but she couldn’t deny that they had grown apart.
“Look, I’m not one to throw up on a marriage,” Janelle said. “But it almost seems like there is this divide now. Especially when he’s like, ‘I want that.’ And I’m like, ‘I can’t give that to you.’”
Kody also felt the distance.
“Does that work for us? Does this work for you? I don’t think you and I know how to be honest with each other,” he said while speaking to Janelle. “I mean, you need to know that too. Something is fundamentally wrong here. Is that exactly what the human condition is?”
Janelle was on a weight loss journey
Janelle revealed on Instagram that she lost weight during her split from Kody.
“I’m ready for you 2023! This health journey I’ve been on has been amazing.” said Janelle. “The results didn’t come overnight and I’m OK with that. It’s all about slowly and steadily winning the race💪🏼. 2023 is my year! If you want to go on this journey WITH me, let’s do it!”
The TLC star has been more than focused on her health a year.
She shared her first progress picture in July.
“Every path to weight loss is different. I’ve said before that I’m always hesitant to share my progress publicly because let’s face it, there are always naysayers in the crowd.” She wrote back then. “But over the past year I’ve not only increased my strength, I’ve lost weight and inches in my own unique way.”
“I never thought I could feel as good as I did at 18 and finally feel like I was on my way to my ultimate health goals,” she added.
