Tonight’s episode and its theme, about a trip to Las Vegas, with Christine as the star of the show this time around, will probably take a back seat in the eyes and minds of viewers to the brand-new information that Robyn Brown is pregnant. Revealed in an exclusive in this week’s People Magazine, the dark-haired, attractive youngest wife, will have her child in “mid-October.” Kody, they say, was surprised and happy; the kids were too. No word on how the other wives felt—yet.


Las Vegas


In this episode, Kody takes Christine and her children to Las Vegas to have some fun. “There are a lot of Christians in Las Vegas…” Kody says. It’s the off-season, so they get a break on the price of a very nice room.

Robyn, who stays behind with Meri, Janelle and the other children and takes them bowling, says, “When it’s just you and him and your kids, they get to see that marriage and (its) strength a lot more because they’re more connected when they’re separate from the rest of us.” To which Kody replies, “The important thing is that everyone gets nurtured.”

While in Vegas, Kody calls Meri, who tells him that she did not get a job she had hoped to get. She had been fired because of her polygamist lifestyle “about the time… we became public.” She says, “I was extremely shocked.” She hopes to work with at-risk youth.
“I worry now I’m a… public figure, it’s going to inhibit my chances… This is why polygamists hide who they are.”

On the last day of the vacation, Kody, Christine and children go on a boat ride, which they seem to enjoy. Afterwards, the two of them have dinner alone: “Very romantic.”

The trip helped them to get back together again. “You’ve got to invest in relationships. You’ve got to fill the bank account of love,” Kody says. And he alludes to the investigation, but there still is very little information about what the investigation is like and what it may do to their family.

At home again, the husband and his wives discuss whether their children get enough attention from Kody. “He uses his time differently,” they explain. “He doesn’t disappear into his man-cave.” They say they feel that the children get enough attention.
And they discuss the act of opening their multiple marriage to the public eye.

“I think we’ve changed all of society, on some levels,” Kody says. . Christine agrees. “Sometimes people come up and thank us, and say, Thank you for doing this.” Some come up and say, “They’d better leave you alone. You have the most wonderful family.”

  • Hi friends,
    I won’t be publishing a new Sister Wives on TV Open Thread after today till May 8. TLC is covering the Royal Wedding and then the 10th anniversary of the disappearance of Chandra Levy. I will publish an article on last Sunday’s episode sometime today or tomorrow though. Thanks! Ladybelle

  • Hi All,
    My electricity was out last night and I could not put up my column (yet) on Sister Wives. I’m really sorry to all readers who may have been looking forward to a good chat and a chance to rant. Electricity can be very iffish here in Vermont. I hope to post another column shortly. Please forgive. Ladybelle

  • I LIKE “a believer in being a good person in general.” Good for you, Lisa. Me too.

    What about you, readers” Any thoughts, ideas, or questions you’d like to post here? Tell us what you think of the Brown lifestyle and the pregnancy of Robyn!

  • Thanks for writing in and giving us your thoughts and ideas! How do you think Robyn’s pregnancy will change the Brown family? Will the other wives accept the baby?
    I think they’re a nice family, and you’re right. We have a right to our own lifestyles as long as no one gets hurt, right?

    I am for your choice(s), and I do not live the same life.
    It boggles mind to see the ignorance of those that do not understand that life, YOUR LIFE, is yours to life it, to the best of your ability. You are all a wonderful example of good human beings. As a suggestion, if you want to change anything, you may have to try to change the law about marriage. There are always loop holes, and yours may be that your ‘religion’ allows this. As long as you are acting in complete honesty and not marrying behind each others backs, then all is well.
    Best wishes to the Brown family!!
