The upcoming TLC season of Sister Wives will feature a segment on Kody Brown’s separation from Christine.
The popular program, which debuted in 2010, follows Kody, the patriarch of the Brown family, and his wives as they marry many women.
Meri, Robyn, and Janelle Brown are all in relationships with Kody right now, but Christine, a fourth former spouse, has revealed she is no longer with him.
The aftermath of Christine and Kody’s separation will be covered in Season 17 of Sister Wives, as the teaser has shown, including footage of Kody’s other wives responding to the news.
As the scenes air on TLC, fans may need a reminder as to what happened between Kody and Christine, and why things are so tense in the new episodes.
What Happened to Sister Wives Actors Christine and Kody Brown?
Christine announced on her Instagram in November 2021 that her marriage to Kody was finished.
Christine posted a message on her page saying, “After more than 25 years of being together, Kody and I have grown apart, and I have decided to leave.
“As we raise our lovely children and take care of our amazing family, we will continue to be a strong presence in each other’s life. As we move through this stage in our family, we now ask for your love and grace.
Kody subsequently issued a statement of his own, saying: “Christine’s decision to leave is one that I am deeply saddened by.
“I have a great deal of respect and affection for her, and we had a lot of fun together throughout the years. Although we are heading in different directions, we will always be dedicated parents.
Viewers of Sister Wives may not have been overly shocked by the revelation of the breakup because Season 16 highlighted the strain the COVID-19 pandemic was putting on Christine and Kody’s marriage.
After Kody’s Separation, Christine Brown’s Relationship With “Sister Wives” Was Clarified.
When Christine Brown, who had been married to Kody Brown in multiple relationships, announced their separation in November 2021, the news stunned the Brown family.
The Sister Wives star’s husband was also shared by Robyn Brown, Janelle Brown, and Meri Brown. But when she made their breakup public in a lengthy Instagram post, she claimed that she and Kody had “grown apart.”
Fans of the TLC show were left wondering how the mother-of-breakup six’s with Kody will influence her interactions with the other wives after Christine’s news.
How Do Robyn Brown and Christine Brown Get Along?
Once it was revealed that the cooking star had broken up with Kody, Robyn said some hurtful things about Christine. Robyn asserted in a Sister Wives Tell All episode that her co-star “didn’t even try” to save their marriage to their husband.
“I just don’t know why they’re not sorting this out and finding a solution,” said Kody’s fourth wife, the only one to whom he is officially wed. It’s my family, she continued through tears.
She continued in the show by saying that Christine had declined to collaborate with the other Sister Wives actors because of what she called “dysfunctional” features of the family structure.
