Sister Wives + My SisterWife's Closet

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Anyone watch it last night? What did you think? Anyone wonder why, if they are building houses, they aren't just building another polyg house? Do you think Meri will take Robyn up on her offer? Were you thinking Robyns credit was going to ruin everything?

I did wonder if Robins credit would ruin it all I was surprised it did not.

 

I don't think they can get zoning for that and I also think they kinda like having their own houses but still want to be close.

 

I don't think Meri will take her up I personally think she is done.

I watched I don't know what I think anymore. To me it seems they are all not getting along anymore at all. I think that Meri and Robyn are close and the other two stick to them selves.  They are building a polyg cul de sac.  I don't think Meri will take her up. I think she wishes it was offered to her years ago. I feel she would have answered already if the family was closer like they use to seem to be when they were in UT.  I really did think Robyns credit was going to ruin everything and her and Meri would have to share a house.  I can't believe that she had three different names on her report ( I am thinking Maiden, married) but where did the third come from?

You read my mind, i was just coming here to post about Sister Wives! lol.

I missed a few episodes of this show last season so i watched some of the back to back episodes before tonights new show came on. I used to really like this show and now it's kind of annoying me in the way that it's not "real" anymore. How in the world can they afford 4 custom built homes when nobody seems to be working? I think that in today's economy they should be thinking of ways to cut back and live within their means. Do i think Mari needs a 7 bedroom house of her own??? NO, get real, that to me is just unbelievable. Her daughter is leaving for college soon and she needs 6 empty bedrooms to herself, meanwhile Janelle is being practical and asking for the bare minimum for her house and is willing to have her children share bedrooms to help cut costs. Mari and Robyn claim to be so close, why can't she have a "mother in law" type apartment built onto Robyn's house so she can still have her privacy yet save them money?? I don't understand the need for 4 brand new houses that after the show is over and done with will probably fall into foreclosure because they can no longer generate enough income to cover the property taxes and utilities on each place. So many things bugged me about last night.

How did Robyn clear up her credit score in 30 days?! This"my sisterwives closet" business that Robyn was so gung ho for must not be doing well? If you try to search the website you get error messages and nothing shows up. Kody yet again seems to have a nice new sporty vehicle. Why is it okay for Mikayla (Meri's daughter) to go away to Utah for college, but they really want Logan (is that his name?) to stay close at UNLV?

There is more jealousy in that family than they let on, you see it more and more as the episodes go on. Mari probably won't take Robyn up on her offer of surrogacy because at this point i really don't think she wants to be tied down with a child. She made her snarky remark about how she "takes care of her things" and that is why they last.She admits to having expensive taste, but i also think she's trying to use the "i'm the number one wife" excuse to get the best of everything. Janelle is feeling like she has to sacrifice for her kids to make Mari and the others happy. Christine seems stuck in the middle and left out. Robyn cries alot and needs the most attention from Kody. Kody wants to blame the fall out on them all not living close enough together. Maybe he should just buy an old hotel and renovate it for his whole family to be together?

I think the difference between Logan and Miriah going out of state to school has a lot to do with religion. Kody stated that her wanting to go back to UT to be with more of her faith was a good reason. I do think that them living spaced out has helped deteriorate the family. Lets not forget that several of the adults took the exam to be realators last season. There is simply no way they can not be working for money and only working on My Sisterwives Closet to get it going. I was just looking at what they have and wasn't overly impressed. There must be some income. I also think to clean up Robyns credit they had the lawyer talk down some debt then the family pooled their money to do the payoff. I think it was Janelle who said something to lead me to believe that.

I think they should buy a warehouse type building and try to get it zoned for housing.It would be cheaper and they could stay together.

I really thought  Robyn's credit and the fact she used 3 or 4 alias was a strike against her.

I didn't like Robyn at first,but I think she is genuine.

As for Meri taking her up on her offer,probably not.  I persnally would think another woman offering such a precious deed would only make   the  husband fall t more in love with the other woman. 

Let's  talk about Janelle. How do you feel about her hatred toward Meri?  I can't stand her.  I adore Meri,and Robyn is sweet too.

Good talking with you.

I can't really watch too much of the show but your recaps are awesome. I just wonder at needing that large of a house for just you (who is going to clean that? or the cost of heat?) It just seemed too much for me. The whole family dynamics are interesting but I wonder how they "really" are kwim? The producers do a whole lot of editing to these shows so you only get what they want you to see. When I first started watching I felt bad for wife #1. I mean, if suddenly dh was all "hey i want to bring another wife into this family" I would take it that I wasn't enough by myself.

 

*Dh reading over my shoulder laughed and said "oh no honey you are all the wife I think I can handle"ROTF.gif

 I like Janelle and her spunkiness! She's the only one with the balls to speak up. Can you blame the woman? All the years they lived in Utah she was (self admittedly) the major bread winner of the family. She had the best paying job, but yet she makes a lot of sacrifices for the other wives. She is the one always looking to save money here and there and is content to have smaller bedrooms in her new home with her kids sharing bedrooms.Meanwhile Meri feels she deserves a house with 7 bedrooms?? Yeah, i would be a little annoyed with Meri too if my hard earned income went to support her expensive tastes and her wants vs needs. There is a resentment there, you can see it, but i don't think it's all on Janelle.Meri is using the First Wife card to her advantage. I actually feel bad for Janelle, because i don't think she ever gets much attention from Kody. He's too busy keeping Queen Bee wifey #1 happy and content and drooling over hot little wifey #4.  I used to like Meri on the first season, but she is changed now.

I hope Janelle gets smart and gets out of that situation, she has proven she doesn't need a man to support her.

Do you think they are actually making money with this?  I didn't think their jewelry was that cute.  Is it just me?

 

I'm pretty sure they get paid pretty well from TLC.  At least enough to fund their homes being built.

I think the jewelry is weird.  However, I bet they make plenty off the show.
