Robyn is an actress by profession, and is known for her roles in 'Just Shoot Me!', 'Sister Wives', and 'WGN Morning News'.
Meri, the first wife of Kody Brown, has been married to the man for 24 years, since April of 1990. They were legally divorced in 2014 so that Kody could marry Robyn (his fourth wife) and adopt her three children, but still live together. On February 4, 2022, Meri revealed on an Instagram post that she is estranged from Kody. The two share one child, Mariah Brown.
Janelle, Kody's second wife via spiritual marriage, has been married to the man since June of 1993, via a spiritual marriage. They have six children together, namely, Logan, Madison, Hunter, Garrison Gabriel and, Savannah Brown. From Season 16 of the show, it seems like Janelle is thinking of leaving Kody too, after seeing how freeing the divorce has been on Christine Brown, who is also one of her closest friends.
Christine, Kody's third wife, used to be married to him, although only spiritually. She announced her divorce in November of 2021, and the two decided to split ways after over 25 years together. They have six children together, namely, Aspyn, Mykelti, Paedon, Gwendlyn, Ysabel, and Truely.
What is 'Sister Wives' Season 17 all about?
Season 16 of 'Sister Wives' ended with Christine announcing that she'll be leaving Kody, her husband of 25 years. Season 17 picks off from there. In the trailer released by TLC, we see Christine telling Kody and the family that she's leaving him. In her confessional, she shares her theory about how Kody seems to care only about his fourth and youngest wife, Robyn.
If you're wondering how Kody took the news, then the trailer has your answer. Surprisingly, Kody was pretty affected by the news and slams Christine for her decision. He can be heard shouting, "It’s just a knife in the kidney, after all the years, the sacrifices I made to love you.” Yep, looks like there's plenty of drama awaiting us.
