Sister Wives premieres tomorrow (Sunday, May 8) and TLC is set to address the fallout of Meri Brown’s online affair with her dreamy, though imaginary lover, “Sam Cooper.”

The information-overload which details the sequence of events is indeed daunting and complicated, so to all those who didn’t want to spend hours getting up to speed — welcome to Sister Wives Catfish 101.

Below, I have condensed the main points — so to all of you nervous newbies — this is your chance to catch up, and JOIN THE SNARK!

The Basics

Meri Brown was entrenched in a 6-month affair with someone whom she believed to be a international business tycoon in his early 40’s, self-identified as “Sam Cooper.” “Sam” illustrates his identity only by a half-faced photo. “Sam’s” real identity is believed to be that of a woman named Jackie Overton. Overton is allegedly a prolific online scammer, who maintains multiple social media accounts, and seeks out vulnerable personalities to score various goodies. Her modus operandi is to build a trusted friendship, in order to move in and score whatever she can. The affair occurred between March and August of 2015.

The Romance

The couple met on Twitter, after Meri and Kody Brown legally divorced. While Jackie is sneaky, a needy Meri appeared to be trolling for romance, ready to jump into the sea of love, with someone, maybe anyone. Meri and Sam flirted on Twitter publicly first, then privately, spoke on the phone, and texted. Some say that what they shared could not be classified as an affair — but Meri’s faith declares a spiritual marriage just as binding as a legal one. In the eyes of her religion, it was indeed a no-no.

The Evidence

Sam swept Mare off of her bronzed feet, and collected around 200 voicemails with Meri’s voice gushing, whining, and flirting up a storm. Mare proclaimed her love to “Sam,” counseled “Sam,” and giggled with “Sam,”— over and over. The couple shared their hopes, fears, and intimate thoughts. Meri was heard dissing Kody, and later planned her escape into her new dreamboat savior’s arms. Meri also sent dozens of photos, many naughty in nature. Soapy legs, provocative bananas, dotted denim, and sultry poses were just a few visuals that Sam exposed.

The Exposure

All About the Tea exclusively broke the story, and reported the  details until the Browns cracked. Meri finally admitted to a six-month period of speaking to a man, who was later discovered a woman. Mare downplayed the romance, and immediately shifted public focus onto her newly decided victim status. “Sam,” allegedly irritated that Mare broke off their relationship and future, exposed the voicemails, photos, and texts in his online blog. “Sam” continues to blog and assert that the affair was the real-deal, to this day. An e-book was written, entitled ‘Almost Meri’ed,’ which was made available on Amazon. Neither Meri, the Browns, or TLC has disclosed the identity of the person, whom they believe tricked Meri Brown’s heart. “Sam” blogged throughout the Sister Wives season, dished alleged details, and even did Facebook Q and As. Meri’s ex continues to blog about the experience today.

The Show

One of the more fascinating aspects of the story was the insight allowed to viewers, during the airing of the show. The story broke right at the beginning of the season, and fans were able to peg a scowling Meri, detach from her family. She was uncooperative during filming, ornery one minute and giddy the next. TLC added late season footage, knowing that the scandal needed to be addressed. TLC planned to wrap the season with Meri vaguely alluding to a desire to leave the family — only to abruptly tag on footage of Meri spilling about the online con, presumably after discovery. Meri still claims that she was never leaving the Browns — but her plan was obvious.

Side Characters

Kendra Pollard Parra is one of the main scandal backup dancers. At one time, she worked for the Browns, and was involved with their online boutique. She also appeared on the show once, as a fashion adviser. The Browns cut all ties with her, during the scandal. Pollard Parra runs a dramatic Facebook group which hosted chitchats, where “Sam” answered questions. Kendra claims to believe that Mare did fall in love with a man, and that “Sam” exists. However, some believe that she is afraid of Sam’s sidekick, Lindsay. “Lindsay” is another Overton identity, who maintains that she works for “Sam,” a sort of modern day Girl Friday. Meri met “Lindsay” in person a few times, and the pair even went to Disneyland, supposedly on the promise that “Sam” was coming along. Meri admits to  meeting “Lindsay,” but not “Sam.” Meri trusted “Lindsay” along with  “Sam,” and spilled alleged Brown secrets, which “Sam” exposed in his blog.

The Questions

Despite dozens of investigative blogs, questions still remain. One questions the nature of the physical relationship, between the couple. “Sam” claims a traditionally sexual one, and even Meri notes being “intimate,” with her young hunk. We still don’t know if the relationship was only cyber-sexual, if a man stepped in and played a part a time or two, or if even something lesbian in nature occurred. Meri claims that she never met “Sam,” but her romeo repeatedly begs to differ. We also don’t know how the discovery was made, or how exactly the romance ended.

Meri labels the affair only “emotional,” but the voicemails and steamy photos reveal a sexual component in the mix. Meri even expressed a desire to have “Sam’s” child. Another biggie asks exactly what the other wives knew, as Meri became distant, and obviously unhappy. Many believe that freshly dubbed legal wife, Robyn, was in the mix, coaxing the affair with the help of her pal, Kendra. We just don’t know. Kody caught wind of the flirtation, and tweeted cryptically at Sam, but that is the extent of what we know for sure. No one has been able to crack the true identity of the man in the photo. Most believe that is a photo-shopped compilation of several photos, which makes the task impossible.

At the core of the charade is the ongoing legal battle the Browns have taken on against the state of Utah, fighting to legalize polygamy. Many believe that facades and charades have to stay in place, at least until the lengthy process plays out.

Jackie Overton is a career liar — but many believe the Browns to be pretty shady characters themselves. Much was exposed last season, against the Browns’ will. What course do you believe the main players will take, now that the ball is back in their cult?

Sister Wives returns with an all new season May 8 at 8/7c on TLC. Watch an exclusive sneak peek below.

I am a coastal girl who loves the outdoors, and writing about the sneaky and silly side of reality TV. My bio is short, but my snark is endless, and I love writing for the sharpest posters in the world. Follow me on Facebook

  • CherryLimeDean3000

    Oooh, this is gonna be good. Here, trollie trollie trollie trolls. #hugz

  • Sandy Wood

    Thank you Beach Spin for the great summary…not easy to untangle this web.
    Oh to have been a fly on the wall when the pompous little man known as Kody Brown got the news that whatever he was bestowing on Meri wasn’t enough.

    • Birdie

      That furrowed brow probably crossed his eyes.

      • Sandy Wood

        I am sure his distress was motivated more by “how is this going to look” rather than by “how could I ever lose you, what did I do wrong”

      • chacha1

        Hahahaaaaaaaa

    • chacha1

      Sandy be assured that Sobbin Robyn and Kody were doing the Happy Dance until they realized their show could be canceled ….. there are perverts all over TLC and why the Boo Boo’s and those ahole Duggars got cancelled but not these perverts is beyond me

  • Birdie

    OH SNAP—ahh the memories. Can’t wait for Meri to clench her fist and shake it at the heavens–vowing that she did NOT have an affair.

    • Sandy Wood

      And putting on her tough-girl panties proclaiming they messed with the wrong pppperson.

      • KT

        That clip irritates me to no end and is just STUPID!

    • chacha1

      and being all gangsta saying that JO messed with the wrong fambly LMAO

      • CherryLimeDean3000

        They’re tick as tieves.

        • chacha1

          LOL

    • Why is this happening to us?

      You know she will!
      Some people say that she didn’t have an affair because there was no physical contact.
      I believe it was an affair because the intent was there and she exchanged sexually explicit texts and calls with “him.” I think an emotional affair still qualifies as an affair. I know I wouldn’t allow my husband to do that!
      Also, she met with and hung out in person with Jackie, with the intention of meeting Sam. That’s an affair! Lol
      Now she has turned it around to make it look like SHE is the victim. She was a willing participant until she got caught! I don’t understand why she just doesn’t leave if she is that miserable. Now that she and Kody are only “spiritually married” and Mariah is an adult, there is really nothing keeping her in the “marriage.” The only asset they have is the house and I’m not even sure if Kody’s name is on any of those houses or if they houses are solely in the wives’ names.

  • Amanda

    She is miserable and it’s been obvious. I think after this was exposed it can only be more uncomfortable at home now. She still has time to find happiness in the world. While a very stupid choice to engage in all this, I think it’s much more stupid to stay after the fact.

    • Sandy Wood

      It is my opinion that Meri will not find happiness until she submits to deep therapy, not their in-house therapist. It would need to be someone capable of de-programming the notions that anyone but a robot could possibly be happy sharing a portion of a spouse.
      In any case, Meri will not leave until the series is cancelled, too much at stake financially and Meri has not taken any steps to become self-sufficient.

      • chacha1

        Meri keeps threatening to go back to college, yeah okay Meri, and if she does everyone better lock up their sons

      • Amanda

        Yes some major therapy of course. She needs to find a ghost writer and propel herself out of there. I also think Christine would do well leaving and finding happiness in mogomgy as well.

        • Sandy Wood

          Despite the fact that Christine’s mother summoned the courage to leave, and now lives with Christine, I believe she would be the last to leave voluntarily. She has had generations behind her living the lifestyle and truly believes this is her ticket to celestial heaven.

          • Amanda

            I’m just going off the level of complaining comin from her. I think a lot of it would stop if she was in a monogamous marriage with the attention she’s requiring. She’s mainly why I watch, she’s a sweet lady and keeps a positive look AFTER complaining lol 😊 Like me lol

    • BeachSpin

      She is too weak to be alone.

  • Sandy Wood

    I wonder if we will see a “celebrate the affair” dance choreographed by Christine…incorporating (banana) splits aided by soapy legs.

    • chacha1

      Picture this ……. Christine puts on her Renaissance Dress from the Commitment Ceremony and pulls out her magic wand spreading magic fairy dust thru out the cult de sac and chanting “what what” and Kody breaks out doing his famous “chicken having a seizure dance” in the driveway clucking away, while Robyn peeks out the window giving herself a high five

      • BeachSpin

        You should be creative director– the show would be way better.

        • chacha1

          Hahahahaaaaaaa even the visual of Kody dancing at the cake tasting was such a turn off …… what was that all about ?

      • annienonymous

        Wearing a Chiquiata Banana headdress

      • Why is this happening to us?

        Omg…the visual! Lmao

  • chacha1

    I see that Jackie Overton goes to the same hairdresser as Mongrel Meri ….. Is Meri going to write a book ‘Fifty Shades of Orange’ ?

    • Sandy Wood

      The book, Fifty Shades of Orange, followed by the sequel Fifty Things To Do With Those Extra Bananas.

      • chacha1

        what did a banana ever do to her to suffer sexual abuse ?

        • KT

          BWAHAHAHA!!!

        • annienonymous

          Laughing to loudly here. Getting “looks” from the husband

  • chacha1

    The Brown Holes are very shady, they are grifters, they are liars, they are hypocrites, they are perverts and they are being enabled by TLC and their sponsors WHY ???

  • Sandy Wood

    Perhaps Kody could “marry” Jackie Overton as the much anticipated #5 wife, she could have a few child-bearing years left and she could move into Meri’s house. Robyn could not possibly be jealous and Meri would have JO’s undivided attention. Win-win…everybody happy.

    • chacha1

      yes, yes and hell yes

    • BeachSpin

      Oh this is beautiful–I smell a spinoff.

      • CherryLimeDean3000

        Kodester and Jackster could get the exact same haircut and color for constant confusion and comedic mayhem.

        • BeachSpin

          They have the same build too.

          • annienonymous

            Hahaha

    • annienonymous

      I would start watching it again if that happened! TLC needs to hire you as a script writer

      • Sandy Wood

        Thank you annie, but in my wildest dreams I couldn’t conjure up the nonsense these people inflict on themselves. 😉

    • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

      Instead of moving to Dubai…the “twins” could become new members of the Brown family.

  • chacha1

    Hey Brown Holes how is that therapist working out for you ? LOL epic fail on all those slugs

    • Sandy Wood

      If this lifestyle is so tranquil and “right”, why would they need an on-call therapist who they engaged long before the series started. She hasn’t been able to resolve the conflict between Meri and Janelle after all these years.

      • chacha1

        and then we have to see Janelle groveling for forgiveness from Meri when Meri was having her affair with her banana and being dismissive of Janelle while she said “I will think about it” and then when they were in Alaska Logan let the cat out of the bag that he was “shocked” that they were ALL getting along without the constant drama because that never happens …… now they are all supportive of their abuser Meri just so they can keep the houses … shame on TLC

        • Sandy Wood

          They were all getting along because Meri had made up her mind she was going to leave to join her multi-millionaire, handsome prince (whom she had never met) and Kody and Robyn already knew about it.
          That whole scene in the restaurant was staged and phony.
          The only one surprised that showed genuine emotion was Christine.
          All Janelle could think of to say was…hope you will be around for Thanksgiving…looking forward to Meri’s pastry contributions.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            They need Meri around so they can use her wet bar. Lol

  • Sandy Wood

    I noticed that Kody and Meri celebrated their 26th wedding anniversary with a road trip with Robyn’s son Dayton and another young teen in tow. How romantic…much like Christine’s rock building celebration with the therapist along.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      Omg. Lol.
      Didn’t Robyn & Kody go to Hawaii for their honeymoon ALONE? That must make all the other wives really upset. I don’t think any of them had the big wedding or honeymoon like Robyn did. I don’t even think they have gone on any vacations with Kody, unless other family members or the therapist were around. How romantic… Lol

  • KT

    Unfortunately, I think they are going to continue to “circle the wagons” and claim that Meri was “forced” to say and do those things (pics and voicemails, etc.) in order to “protect her family” I think we’ll hear more of the same B.S. that we heard in the season ending “Tell None” with Tamron Hall. Their only goal is to protect their TLC income.

    I think they will continue to insult their viewers with their denials, and are probably counting on that old saying “If you repeat a lie often enough, people will start to believe it.”

  • Ruth

    LOL, I am so confused. I will reread.

    • Sandy Wood

      Ruth, TLC will be airing reruns starting at 1pm tomorrow right up until official start of new season. Good way to catch up unless you are enjoying your own Mother’s Day festivities.

      • Ruth

        Thanks Sandy, I will DVR them. Is this guy legally married to one of these woman?

        • Contessa Bel Raven

          He was legally married to Meri. They divorces so he could legally marry Robyn in order to be able to adopt her kids. Not that any of us believe that is the only reason. Kodi really only has eyes for Robyn

          • Ruth

            HMMMMMMMM, that he only has eyes for Robyn is new info and goo to know. Thanks

          • Birdie

            He has been like that for a long time, but when the legal marriage switch occurred, it was so in your face it couldn’t be argued.

        • Sandy Wood

          Yes, he is presently legally married to Robyn, who maneuvered her way into Kody divorcing Meri, to make herself #1 wife. Haha, you need a flowchart to keep track if you are just embarking on their Journey.

          • Ruth

            Thanks, I get that part now

    • BeachSpin

      It is a lot of info, and this is seriously condensed lol–read it again, then I would be happy to answer questions, whenever I jump on. Other posters on here can answer also–I just always want people to read first and shoot for a basic understanding.

      • KT

        Beach: You summed it up perfectly. There is so much info out there I don’t know how you did it. Seriously, if you never watched this show your recap would definitely get you up to speed. GREAT JOB. And thank you!

        • BeachSpin

          Thanks KT and YW! 😘

      • Ruth

        So many names to remember. LOL

      • Ruth

        You said the woman who cheated did so because of what her religion believes. What religion is that? Thanks for helping

        • BeachSpin

          The are fundamentalist Mormons–in an offshoot sect of the LDS. They dodge around the assumed Apostolic United Brethren label, and really just make their own rules, as they go along. Meri and Kody were once the only legal marriage, and the others are considered “spiritual wives.” A couple of years ago, they legally divorced, so Kody could marry Robyn, supposedly so he could adopt her kids from her first marriage. Their faith holds spiritual marriages to a standard just as sacred and binding as the one legal one.. So you kind of have to look thru the eyes of their cult, to understand their mindset.

          • Ruth

            Thanks so much. I understand. Now the question is, will I remember. hee hee

          • Bryan

            They all need to be arrested and sent to devils island

          • BeachSpin

            I’m with YOU!

          • Bryan

            Such horrible people! LOL

          • PCpolice

            LOL

          • Bryan

            =)

  • BigBrothersMother

    This may have been the best catfish ever. Props to JO.

    • Birdie

      Absolutely–the mastery of it all.

  • PCpolice

    Please, not another season revolving around Queen Robyn and her ability to multiply

    • BeachSpin

      Season of the heaven-sent womb.

      • Contessa Bel Raven

        Heaven sent? Ms Robyn is no angel…unless it’s a fallen one. Bless her conniving manipulative evil heart.

        • BeachSpin

          Oh my–you are unfamiliar with my sarcasm–bless your heart. LOL You’ll catch on soon enough!

          • Contessa Bel Raven

            Lol I figured it was sarcasm. Absolutely no one in their right mind would ever use heaven sent when describing any of the Sister Skanks in any other way.

      • PCpolice

        Oh Lord, lol

    • KT

      Or give birth. No thanks!!!

  • PCpolice

    Could be wrong, but it looks like Janelle’s regained the weight she’d lost, and then some.
    Nearly every Brown female is obese. More poor role modeling.

  • Bryan

    This show with these ugly people is STILL on???

    • Bwahaha!! Yes, can you believe it. And it’s bigger than ever.

      • Bryan

        LOL Hard to imagine LOL!!!

  • Beach — thank you for the in depth catfish summary.

    I am very interested to see if Mare will own her part in the fiasco. I still think Jackie may have hired a male escort to come visit Mare in the cult-de-sac and bonk her for a weekend.

    I’m sure Meri is at the Bettors window in Vegas today since there’s a horse named My Man Sam running in the Kentucky Derby…

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Haha. The jokes are endless but this takes the cake.

      Hey Snarky! Happy Saturday and Mother’s Day weekend.😘

        • Hey sweetie! Thank you so much and a wonderful Mother’s Day to you as well. 😘

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Thanks Doc! 😽

      • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

        Hi Doctah 👋

        Happy Mother’s Day to you! 😘

        I found LVP sangria & will have a glass or many during SW tomorrow. I gotta let Daisy know where to find it in these parts.

        • *Smiling* Awesome!! LVP Sangria is completely sold out everywhere here. I’m so bummed. I’ll drink along with you with my back up wine. See you tomorrow.

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Oooh…sounds divine! Enjoy it!! 🍷
          Which one did you buy? (I think there are 2). I haven’t had the pleasure of trying it, but I did a search and there is a liquor store close to me that has it. Next time I’m in that part of town, I’ll go get some!

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            I opted for Pink. 🍷

            Thank you! I’ll enjoy a nice much needed buzz for 2 hours of SW…while I’m sure I’ll be answering questions of what am I watching…why are they crying…what are they wearing…is the TV color off (because of Meri) & are they all sleeping with that one strange dude????

          • Why is this happening to us?

            lol…Mr Why won’t watch Kody and his Konkubines…He thinks they are a bunch of sick perverts! (And He’s right! Lol)
            Let me know how you like the wine- I think pink is the way to go- it’s most likely Pinkie’s favorite! 🎀💖💕
            I guess I had better go get me a bottle of something to drink before SW starts tomorrow! Lol. I will probably need it, especially since the premiere is 2 hours long!
            Happy Mother’s Day! Enjoy! 😽

    • Why is this happening to us?

      Lol…I’m sure she is!

      Hi Snarky! 😽 Happy Mother’s Day!

      • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

        Hi hunni 👋

        Thank you so much! Next week I’m gonna start making some of the trainwreck SW recipes that are listed on TLC to see what happens.

        Not tomorrow tho…& I ain’t even trying to make Meri’s mock ravioli. You know I’d get thrown outta the Italian club for that. 😉

        • Why is this happening to us?

          Lol…what is the deal with all these “mock” recipes? I don’t get it…why not just make the real thing? I guess that’s the Italian in me talking….no ketchup & butter tomato sauce over here!
          What are some of their delicacies and where do I find them?

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            I hear that. I’d have to have someone else start my car if I tried making mock lasagna & shit like that. 👀

            I don’t get all the mock recipes either. Tapioca can’t be that hard to find.

            Maybe their food stamps didn’t cover all of the ingredientses back in the day & a SW gotta mock up some dinner & dessert.

            Meri’s Soda Cracker Surprise Toffee

            Janelle’s Peanut Butter Fritos oh my 👀

            These “winners” & more are found on the TLC site…under SW recipes.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Mr. Snarky would never go for that! Lol. Mr. Why neither.
            I thought tapioca was pretty cheap…lol..that’s why I couldn’t understand using mock tapioca. What the hell do they use instead?
            You are probably right about the food stamp situation.
            Those recipes sound delicious 😝 Lmao
            I will definitely check them out!

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            They wouldn’t go for that & we don’t wanna be having mock donuts brought home to us either. 😄

          • Why is this happening to us?

            No way Jose! Lol…not in this house!
            The other night Mr Why brought home some more Peter Pan donuts.. ☺️..I wanted to kill him because I was doing so good on my diet all week! I couldn’t resist though…lol…I had a coconut cream and a jelly. The jelly was soooooo good! Lol. They both were, but I don’t think I ever had a jelly donut from there before. The jelly they use is really good- it’s darker in color than the usual raspberry jelly I see in Dunkin Donuts’ donuts. I figured it was a special treat to have them fresh- he doesn’t get them often. I think I have only had them about 3 or 4 times total. I’m glad I don’t live closer, or I’d be in there every day! Lol

          • KT

            Snarky you totally cracked me up…….”have someone else start my car”!!! LOVE IT

    • chacha1

      I saw that when hubby and I went to bet and have lunch at the OTB ….. LOL This horse My Man Sam bears a strong resemblance to Meri

      • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

        I love an OTB! So much fun! Hope you had a great lunch Cha!

        I told Mr. Snarky to put a few bucks on Sam…but didn’t explain the reason why. 😄

  • Why is this happening to us?

    This is great, Beach Spin! Thank you so much for summarizing the highlights!
    I didn’t know “Sam” was still pretending to be a real person. I thought since the cat was out of the bag, there was no more Sam.
    I think they need a crossover with the MTV show Catsfish to investigate Jackie & Sam. They could track his pictures down and find the REAL Sam.
    Interesting theory about Robyn and Kendra being in cahoots…hmm…that would be something!

    I think as much as Kody and wives are pissed that Meri got them involved with all this, they are probably happy they have a storyline to be able to stay on the TLC payroll. They have 4 houses to pay for and not one of them has a “real job.” They really didn’t have anything interesting going on until last year.

    I also think they need to get rid of Tamron Hall and get Kevin Frazier to do the reunions. She is too soft on them and let’s them get away with not answering uncomfortable questions. They need someone a little more unforgiving.

    Looking forward to the new season. I have watched for years, but never had anyone to discuss the show with until I started coming here. The snark is always more fun than the actual show! And it’s nice to have something to watch and snark about other than HW’s for a change.

    • chacha1

          Yes I am, It is good to be Queen LOL and hope you have a wonderful day also sweetie

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Thank you!
            Glad to hear it! You are always going to be the Queen! Not just for one day out of the year! 👑👸🏻

  • chacha1

    I read where someone called Kody Cootie Brown …. from now on I am going to refer to this hosebag as Kootie Brown …… OMG how did I miss that LOL

    • Why is this happening to us?

      Lol…that’s a great one!
      Skrody or Krody are good ones too… 😷

  • chacha1

    Happy Mothers Day to ALL 🙂

    • Hi Cha! Happy Mother’s Day my friend. Hope you have a wonderful day!!

  • Why is this happening to us?

    That banana in the mouth picture is seriously disturbing…lol…as is the pajama pic. How is that sexy? Lol. She isn’t even wearing sexy lingerie- who in the world gets turned on by an unattractive woman in granny pajamas?

    • chacha1

      Hahahahahaaaaa but she really wants us to believe a guy who looks like Sam and a millionaire on top of it, wanted only her and she broke his heart because she was going to have his baby and run away to the cabin with him and changed her mind because she is a believer in the religion of perversion ….. Almost Meri’ed is the biggest crock of shit I ever heard about.

      • Why is this happening to us?

        As if! Lmao
        I’m sorry, but it’s actually sad how naive she was to the whole thing. I guess that’s what happens when you grow up in a cult your whole life.

        Did you read Almost Meri’ed? I haven’t had the pleasure…lol.. Who wrote it? “Sam” or Jackie? And what’s in it?

        • chacha1

          I wouldn’t read that crap if it was given to me ….. it was all bullchit written by that moron Jackie/Lindz/Kendra who the F knows but it sure wasn’t a guy who looks like Sam that’s for sure

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Lol….I wouldn’t read it either. I just don’t care enough to spend my time or money to read that crap. (I thought Kendra was a real person who was a friend of Robyn’s?)
            I’m sure they will explain everything on the show tomorrow night- most people haven’t kept up with the off screen drama. Then again, they will probably leave large pieces of information out to make the Brown’s look good. They have to edit it so that Meri looks like the victim she is pretending to be!

            There’s a really really funny review of the book that takes ya through the whole damn overly-emotional crazy ass rollercoaster ride for free. Every messy chapter.

            Google the title of the book & it’s like #4 on the search.

            Bull💩 Book Club

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Lmao….ok! Thanks for the tip! I’ll let you know what I think after I read it…lol

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            Excellent!

            It’s funny…like the tone of the Skinnygirl booze reviews.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Awesome! I’ll have to read those too! Lol

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            The girl that wrote the review is absolutely hilarious throughout & she makes it a very good “read”

            A snippet…

            “He describes the only three women he’s dated in his life as having “blessed his life.” Really? Lisa micromanaged you to the point of suffocation, you can’t say the second one’s name aloud without feeling the need to rock in a corner somewhere, and Meri, a married polygamist, humiliated you with a very public rejection. “Blessings,” kay. Proof God may hate you.”

            &

            “He begs the reader to love and support Meri because that’s “all she needs” to escape from her polygamy cage, you know, the opinions of total strangers who read her lover’s lurid tell all. The Zero admits that he tried his damnedest to help her but, “I wasn’t good enough … I wasn’t enough.” Which is quite possibly the understatement of the century- you weren’t even a real person”

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Omg..lol….the fact that wacko Jacko is writing this as Sam is even more comical.
            I had to charge the iPad- didn’t have enough “juice” before to read it yet, but I’ll get on it!

          • KT

            Kendra is a real person. She’s supposedly has 10 kids but also has enough time to tweet almost every celebrity known to man and comment on every social media account about everything from breast feeding to grocery stores. She’s married to a blue collar worker and lives in northern California. For whatever reason this hum drum wanna be famous Kendra is or was friends with Robyn. She was involved with their sister wives closet and was on the show one time when she took them shopping for their commitment ceremony dresses in San Francisco. Let me just say….I’ve worked in San Francisco and have lived in the San Francisco Bay Are all my life. The places she took them to are neither haute couture or upscale or even on the cutting edge of fashion……which apparently is right up the Brown’s alley.

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Thanks for explaining! Was Kendra already friends with Robyn, or did Robyn meet her online and hire her as an employee for SWC? If it’s the latter, I could totally see her cat fishing Meri or being involved in the scam. I’ll have to go back and watch the old episode from SF. I don’t remember them meeting up with anyone while they were there.
            How does someone with 10 kids have time to do any of that? lol. Do you think her whole story is fake?
            I’m sure the Brown’s didn’t go to any couture boutiques. Lol. The dresses they designed themselves were horrendous! They could have just gone to David’s Bridal and bought a dress for $99 instead of wearing what they wore. The only one who looked halfway decent was Janelle.
            Chacha says Christine looked like she was going to the Renaissance Faire with her dress…lmao…she’s so right!

          • Ruth

            I am so new to this BUT, so far it all reminds me of the Travis/Ethan/Dakota mess. Also the posters with multiple accounts. I am working hard on figuring the show out.

          • 📉 Snarky in Hoboken📈

            Hi Ruth! You’ll catch up quick!

            Kody…the goof they all adore.

            Meri was wife # 1 legal until they divorced last year.

            Jamelle spiritual partner in crime/wife whatever #2

            Christine spiritual partner in crime/wife whatever #3

            When the show started Kody was courting Robyn who became spiritual partner in crime/wife #4. They had a ceremony on the show. Last season Kody divorced Meri & Robyn became legal wife to Kody.

            So now Meri is ex-wife but still in the mix…for now as ex-wife partner in crime.

          • Ruth

            Thanks, I have been reading all day

          • DaisyD

            Happy Mother’s Day Snarky ! 💐🌸🌷

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Yes! So true!

          • Ruth

            I mean all this people are not who they say they are and different account names. LOL

          • Why is this happening to us?

            That is true! I can’t even keep track anymore! I’m not changing my name, so don’t worry about that. Lol. I changed my pic once and no one knew who I was! I’ll just keep it so everyone knows it’s me. (Even though I can’t stand Teresa! lol.)

          • Ruth

            One day my picture just disappeared. I don’t know why or how to get it back. These people with multiple accounts must have alot of time and Maybe they wanted to grow up to be spies and failed. #hifriends

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I agree.
            I’m not sure how to get your pic back 😕

          • Ruth

            Makes me sad cause i loved that picture

          • Why is this happening to us?

            Aww…I’m sorry. I don’t remember which picture you had up. Maybe it’s on your computer? Or if it’s not a picture of you, you might be able to google and get the image that way. Good luck!

          • Ruth

            LOL, I am to tech stupid

          • Why is this happening to us?

            I’m not much better! Lol

  • CherryLimeDean3000

    I had a dream the whole family was dressed in polo shirts and khakis, like it was their network-mandated uniform. It must have been a holiday; everyone dug into the luscious casseroles placed upon the banquet-length table – but oddly, all were the same – snowy, airy, and white. Like when people make sweet potatoes – you know? – with marshmallows all over the top. But scoop after huge serving-ladle scoop revealed nothing in the depths of every one of those dishes but marshmallows through and through.

    “Do I smell soup?” I asked, hoping upon slim hope for some lentils. “You betcha,” a voice called from the kitchen. In yellow polyester bell-bottom pants, oddly with snowflakes sifting from them like… cankle dandruff? a smirking woman with a nametag: “Big P,” carried out a large tureen. She lifted the lid and inside was nothing but a big pot of steaming beans.

    I turned heel and ran out of that place as fast as I could, Wranglers barely keeping up with my nun shoes. “Yea that,” they called after me.” A banana struck my head as I ran, the cackling hens calling: “JackJack!” all the way to the train station. As it rolled into the station I observed with horror neon-haired plastic dolls leaning out every window of the “Trolltrain Express.” Woke up then, muttering, “Almost Trollbrained,” from the worst nightmare all year.

    • chacha1

      🙂 what a great story thanks for sharing, I had the same dream but when they lifted the lid of the big pot there was Mock Tapioca Pudding …….

    • Mariko

      No baiting please. They were really rude the last time they spammed up our comment section. Thanks.

      • Mariko

        Great, good for you. Just don’t bait the trolls to come here. Or don’t use our platform and our space to start your Twitter crap. Nobody cares about any of the Twitter shit here.

    So… no more ‘After Dark Open Topic’ threads???
    How I am I supposed to keep on topic about shows I don’t know anything about?
    Well I have 4 sisters… that’s about all I can can contribute to this conversation.

    • chacha1

      Be patient, things will get back on track ,,,,,

  • Amanda

    Jackie Overton looks like a brown offspring. That’s the disturbing part

    • Birdie

      OHMYGOSH—nice catch! She really does–like one of Janelle’s kids that never moved out.

      • chacha1

        I still think Jackie looks like Winston Churchill …… and Meri should wear a straw flat hat with a flower sticking out and say Hee Haw, she looks just like a mule

        • Birdie

          Maybe she will take up gardening in her freed up internet time and we will get lucky.

          • chacha1

            Hahahahaaaaaaaaaaa Yeah Samuel Cooper really wanted some of that Meri pootie tang

          • Sandy Wood

            chacha, she DID make a size reference…in the transcripts of the videos she held up a banana and said she liked hers 9 inches, give or take an inch. Let’s hear her ‘splain that one.

          • MadameMidlifeCrisis

            My little chickadee, hot-chachacha is Jimmy Durante. Which I think is a better description of that poor skillet faced woman. I can’t muster up any sympathy for these scofflaw weirdos. These polygamists & their multiple wives (if she bleeds, she breeds), “celestial marriage” having fundy Mormons gross me out.

          • Rebnich247

            Exactly!!! Just who is watching these freaking ugly, fat, disgusting weirdos?!?!? Just makes me vomit in my mouth!!!

    • Sandy Wood

      You are right Amanda,I can see strong similarities to Christine’s son Paedon and Janelle’s son Garrison. Very strange.

      • Mariko

        Lol! She does

      • MadameMidlifeCrisis

        Ha! AHAHAHAHAHA!!! Paedon??? Do they realize that in King’s English (British/Australian/etc.) if you remove the D, his name is Paeon which is our American bastardized “pee on.” O dear; ppl need to stop w/ these bizarre names & spellings.

  • Barb Jean

    Not watching this season.

  • CherryLimeDean3000

    They’re not made of very much, I can tell you that. The slightest whiff of disagreement with any of their dogma sends them running away, ears covered and hot tears streaming, to block, lock, and conduct DM conferences wherein they plan shun-and-smear campaigns in order to “fight back.” Middle-school drama queens the likes of which I’ve never seen before, in the form of 40-60 year-old “ladies” intent on saving the world from “bullying” (while, ironically, they flap their gutter mouths and display selective bigotry through “jokes” both verbal and pictorial,)

    Claiming to exact justice for some unspecified and all-encompassing body of wrongs and slights as well as for a specific “crime” they can’t credibly document, they come off as deranged vigilantes who missed a dose of hostility-dampening meds, roaming in an ever-shifting (via infighting and attrition) pack of loud-barking, heel-nipping, yap-yappers saying the same thing day in, day out, week in, week out, month in, month out.

    The bulk of their schtick is recycling: “Look at this graphic of a naked obese person with photoshopped head on it” or “see what someone said in 2004” or “read this opinion piece posted in November by famed author WackaDoodleDoo,” linking to their poorly-constructed, one-zillionth Alexa-ranked websites.

    Beach Spin, Thanks for making sense out of the Brown nonsense. Question: Did “Sam” sound like a woman on the phone or was a male in on the scam? Thanks everyone

    • BeachSpin

      Sam is believed to be a woman who was disguising her voice–however there is a theory that JO dragged a guy into the mix to boost her story. It remains unclear. According to Meri–it was a woman changing her voice.

    Well, this was adultery. It was intended adultery. Mary knew she was committing adultery. Mary was complaining even deeper adultery.

    Skating around the issue does not matter. This is just adultery pure and simple. It is sad. It is scandalous. It’s pitiful. It’s adultery

    • BeachSpin

      Exactly–I am with you.

    • AnnieKat

      Not if she had divorced the Kodester, which she had. It’s not adultery if you’re not married and haven’t met the “guy.” Sam doesn’t exist, It’s FANTASY, not ADULTERY.

    • jaydeebee

      Umm…the whole “Sister Wives” setup is adultery. I’m pretty sure their “husband” is sleeping with all his “wives”. LOL. If he can have multiple partners, why can’t she?

    • Shalove2

      No it is not adultery it’s polygamy. These are consenting adults and there is no deception or sneaking around. Your cultural bias does not determine what others should find acceptable.

    Part of me feels bad for Meri. Middle aged woman desperate for love. I always got a feeling she wasn’t 100% on board with the whole idea of sister wives but went along with so she wouldn’t lose her husband just to have him divorce for real for Robyn. I watch Catfish every once in awhile and it shocks me how people get pulled into this and can go for years without meeting or sometimes even talking. There was just an episode of a girl who would talk on the phone for 3 years without hearing anything because “he” would text her the answers during the call. How desperate and stupid can you be?!?

  • pat

    Never watched the show but who is this guy with three wives getting upset because one of them might want out and find love elsewhere. This show must be pretty stupid. I just looked this up because I keep seeing previews of a man saying he wishes none of “this” got out.

    • well under normal circumstances its family business which shouldn’t be public knowledge but then again the idiot allowed his family to be filmed

    • Comelia Shawnae

      So did I. This whole poly life is dumb. 4 wives. 20 kids. Crap is psychotic.

  • sherriSSseeley

    Seriously. Like that young little hottie is going to be interested in a middle aged woman coming out of a plural marriage that is documented publicly on TV. If it’s too good to be true – it is. Check out POF or match. They have profiles that are so obviously fake. PhD, my yacht, my home in Aspen. Common sense ladies.

  • jenn

    She divorced the skeezy guy who sleeps around with his “wives” didn’t she? So who cares if she has one online relationship or ten

  • Terri Ann Sheets Bowling

    It’s nobody business but hers. She’s single.

  • aerotica

    Cyber-idiots.

  • Tory

    Who cares!

  • Comelia Shawnae

    These people are a bunch of freaks and this show need to be cancelled

  • Jan

    Sister Wives, the few times I’ve seen any part of shops the pathetic, whiney ads Meri needs to go! %ok each their own and whatever works, but she needs to go period and who the he’ll cares? Just eread all about catfish scandal and Meri just leave and good luck finding a man who would ever want you. Grow up and realize NO ONE CARES!

  • Jan

    Wow, reacomments we say we don’t care but a lot of wasted energy!?
    Personally I don’t get it, but don’t get a lot of choices people live by, so if your happy?
    But that Meri. Whining and stupid to have carried on in the catfish scandel! Come on, I don’t think anyone is at home with her!!! For real anyone who carries,on like that drains everyone around them. All week hearing about it, now I know and I’m 10x more disgusted with her now that I know. So much for my penny’s worth…

  • kathrynlynch

    Meri’s daughter is an offensive, intolerant brat. She is free to establish her own lifestyle, but this disrespecting is unnecessary.

  • Whatdidyousay

    I hope we see Meri actually move and that becomes a storyline.

    It’s been so much fun to watch childman Kody. I hope he starts flirting or courting for a new wife.
