TLC’s Sister Wives could be faced with a cancellation. According to this week’s Life & Style, three of Kody Brown’s wives are threatening to quit the show.
Three of the women of Sister Wives are threatening to leave the show after their husband, Kody Brown, 48, has discussed the possibility of taking on two new wives. An alleged insider spoke to the tabloid about Brown’s decision and how his other wives really feel.
“Kody is really, really sweating losing the show and he’s doing everything he can to keep it,” family friend Kendra Pollard confirmed to Life & Style.
“TLC knows he’s not well-liked by viewers,” an unnamed inside source added. “Kody’s done so many messed-up things that it deserves him right to be pushed aside.”
Now, Kendra Pollard is revealing more about the show’s future. Since Brown has no income without Sister Wives, the alleged family friend said that he can’t afford to lose the paycheck since he needs it to feed his family.
“He wants to stay relevant to TLC,” Pollard added.
Not only is he low on his finances, he’s still considering adding two new wives to his family. As soon as the Sister Wives season finale aired back in June, Brown has been on the hunt for his next two wives. Robyn caught news of Brown’s decision, and has threatened to divorce him. Meanwhile, Brown’s other “spiritual” wives, Christine, 44, Meri, 45, and Janelle, 47, no longer care about their husband and have started dating.
“If he takes on new wives, she said she’ll leave,” Pollard told the tabloid. “This isn’t what she signed up for.”
As Brown’s only legal wife, Robyn, 37, is no longer interested in being part of the Sister Wives polygamy lifestyle. Pollard explained that the reality show has only made Brown more power- and money-hungry, which has resulted him in caring less about his current wives. He only wants to keep the show alive so he can make more money and find more wives to add to his already growing family.
In fact, Brown already has his next wife in mind, according to Hollywood Life. He has had his eye on Robyn’s step-niece and family nanny, Mindy Jessop. In addition, Sister Wives doesn’t have a premiere date set for Season 8, which has fans wondering if the show will end, along with all of Brown’s marriages. Pollard says that all of the divorces could happen soon.
“It’s unfortunate, but I can guarantee you that you’re going to see wives leave,” she added. “Kody’s life is flipping upside down.”
Back in April, Pollard revealed to Life & Style that Brown has already approached her to become his fifth sister wife, cites the Hollywood Gossip.
“The first time he met me he said, ‘You’re so pretty. I’m looking for another wife!’ Robyn was laughing, but I was like, ‘Eww!'”
Pollard believes that Brown will swap one of his current wives for a new one.
“He’ll most likely drop one of the other wives,” she added.
The reason for all of the Sister Wives drama? It’s due to the show’s increasing popularity combined with Meri’s catfish scandal, which has created a rift among the family. Apparently, no one has moved on from the controversy that ignited last season.
“It’s worse than ever. The family is constantly arguing,” Pollard said. “They pretend to be happy for the show, but the family is a mess.”
Brown, on the other hand, doesn’t care that his family is spiraling out of control. He’s just focused on keeping the show and having the money flow in. He will do anything for ratings, even if it’s to find a new wife – or two. Brown’s apparently look for an even younger wife this time around.
“He wants a younger female, basically what Robyn used to be,” Pollard concluded.
In the meantime, Brown and his wives are sticking together. According to Yahoo! News, the family has filed a request on Monday, Sept. 19, for the U.S. Supreme Court to legalize polygamy to challenge Utah’s anti-polygamy laws. The Browns, who currently live in Las Vegas, said they had to leave their home in Lehi, Utah, in 2011, since authorities opened an investigation about their unique family situation. If Brown and his wives really want a divorce, then why would they go through all this trouble to legalize their marriage?
