‘Sister Wives’ Brat! Mariah Brown Ripped on Social Media For Rude Reaction To Mom After Gay Announcement

Posted on Jan 16 2017 - 4:01pm by BeachSpin

Mariah Brown dropped a bomb — but was swiftly embraced and accepted by the Sister Wives clan, when she revealed that she was gay.

Meri Brown attempted communication with her college-aged daughter, but due to the lingering fallout from Meri’s tangle with an online catfish, the convo was a bust. Mariah has enjoyed positive feedback from around the web, but on Facebook, fans raked her for her icy interaction with her mother.

Meri appeared to be one of the very few who was genuinely shocked by Mariah’s revelation. Mariah is now being slammed for her own behavior towards her mom’s seemingly honest struggle to process a shifted reality.

Fans blasted Mariah for being rude, selfish, and hypocritical towards her mother. 

“Mariah drops a bomb like that which is fine, good for her, but yet can’t give her birth mother an inch of decency. Grow up kid, you’re extremely lucky your family is so accepting. A lot of kids in your position have been turned away. Be grateful and show some humility.”

“Mariah is a total brat and so mean and cruel to her mother. I am sure someday she will regret how she has treated her mother. I am also disappointed in Kody who should sit the snob down and try and make her see how unkind she is.”

“I think Mariah is enjoying having this power over her mom. She is a spoiled brat playing games. She is actually being a bully. Its sad.”

“Here it is in a nutshell; “WHO is the parent, & WHO is the child? Meri doesn’t act like a parent, instead she whines & cow-tows to that brat. No parent should explain themselves or answer to their child, when it comes to adult matters. Mariah knows ZERO about adult relationships, & should be put in her place.”

“if mariah wants support then she should of given her mother support. she is one rude kid with no respect for her mother and i wonder if mariah religion believes in same sex relationship, i doubt it.”

“This is a Christian family with high values then why is Mariah permitted to treat her mother so terribly. I am so over her being so hateful to her mother. So she is gay, get over yourself. I have gay siblings &they would never treat my mom this way, only love.”

“Cody needs to knock some sense in that spoil disrespectful child of his and make her apologize to her mother. … Her Birth Mother that is trying really hard to have some kind of communication with her …Brat.”

“Mariah has found herself and that’s great. Yet, Mariah wants everyone including her mom to be happy for her and accept her for who she is but can’t give her mom any acceptance and forgiveness and love. She is a hypocrite and a selfish person.”

“She came out of national TV without talking to her own mother and father first. I think that was a move to further hurt Meri. She likes the power over Meri way too much. Not showing respect for her birth mother. She is a brat plain and simple. The way she’s treating her mother will bite her in the a$$ someday. Grow up Mariah.”

While Mariah’s attitude did score a trickling fan support — viewers were overwhelmingly Team Mare. What are your thoughts on how the mother/daughter mashup went down?

The Sister Wives Tell-All reunion sit-down begins next week.  Don’t miss it!

  • Whatdidyousay

    What did Meri actually do to Mariah other than indulge her all the time?

    • chacha1

      and then Meri humiliated her daughter for the world to see when she denounced polygamy and her pervert husband Kody

  • Snarky Snarkerton

    Queen Mum Meri taught Princess Pariah to be an entitled, selfish, whiny bitch, just like her mother!

    • Sandy Wood

      My sentiments exactly Snarky. If Mariah is all those things, Meri has only herself to blame for instilling those values in her.

      • chacha1

        I still think Meri did more than we know and Mariah is still trying to “process” it all when it comes to Sam, JO and the Banana

        • Sandy Wood

          Meri was so giddy with excitement over the prospect of escaping with “Sam”, she no doubt overshared with Mariah, putting her in an untenable position, torn between loyalty to her sperm donor and wanting a better life for her mother.
          Even if Meri didn’t tell Mariah much, the evidence is all out there on the net. How humiliating…it would take anyone a long time to get over Meri’s “mistake”. It was no mistake, but a deliberate plan of action.

          • CherryLimeDean3000

            True; this must be monumentally embarrassing for a daughter. Also, as for the deck conversation: Could there be a more contrived and uncomfortable setting in which to discuss all this than before the camera crew? Maybe Mariah didn’t like getting into deets with an audience. That could explain the freeze-Mom-out attitude to some degree.

          • Sandy Wood

            I agree there Cherry Lime, I interpreted Mariah’s reaction on the deck as being defensive and protective of her new found self-expression.

        • FreeMefromtheBrowns

          I couldn’t agree more. Just the fact that Mariah told her dad that her mom would have left! I don’t know if we will ever find out exactly what has made Mariah so angry, but Meri is certainly on the receiving end of that anger.
          I can’t stand Meri. Her propensity to make EVERYTHING about her just causes me to have to take a break from watching sometimes. Its not shock that Mariah has some of those qualities too!

  • chacha1

    The Brown Holes are “A Christian Family with High Values” WHAT !!! the dirtbag screws all his concubines without any legal ties and got away with bilking the state of Utah for his perverted life style and let them support his 12 out of wedlock kids

    • MsM

      Man, I wondered how long it was going to take for you to comment on that!! lol

  • Sandy Wood

    Meri has been asleep at the motherhood wheel. She had one child and almost undivided attention to give her, considering she only had a part time husband.
    Mariah has said that she became aware of her feelings when she was 11-12 years old. How could Meri have missed these signals. She can’t blame the catfish for distracting her, this kid has been crying out for direction and understanding long before Sam. Even now, she can’t initiate a meaningful conversation with her own daughter without resorting to awkward giggles.
    The only brat here is Meri.

    • CherryLimeDean3000

      I don’t see that Meri has done anything to deserve that kind of poor treatment from her one and only child. Someone has entitlement syndrome, take-family-for-granted syndrome,and live-only-for-the-moment syndrome. She thinks the world is her newfound playground, and everyone else can just rot. I believe she will regret this attitude at some point down the road.

      • Sandy Wood

        Who raised her and gave her the value system she has?

        • CherryLimeDean3000

          People are more than just a product of who raised them. They are actually people in their own right who can do the wrong thing regardless of everyone’s best intentions and guidance.

          • Sandy Wood

            Back to the old nature vs. nurture debate. I guess that’s never been resolved.

          • MsM

            Nope, probably never will be. Personally? Given what I’ve seen as a therapist and as a case manager over the years? I think people are born the way they are and how they are raised sometimes provides more of a playing ground for their personal vices, demons or games. jmo…

        • MsM

          Now there’s where you hit it on the head. Meri raised Mariah with a very entitled attitude because she was the only kid from that specific union. Any issues those two have is because of that, not so much Meri missing signs of her being a lesbian. (Although, something tells me this is a choice and not a born this way thing, although, I could be wrong…)

          • CherryLimeDean3000

            I think there are a lot of things that went wrong, and people could point fingers at the parents for their mistakes, and at her family situation (one kid in her sub-family vs. many kids in the others), but ultimately none of that yields all the answers. Not every mistake-maker was raised by terrible people, and the converse is true: It would be nice to think that if we do our best to raise our children perfectly, they’ll come out to be perfect, but it just isn’t that simple.

          • MsM

            This ‘kid’ technically isn’t even a kid anymore. She’s a young adult who’s making her own choices without giving much regard to her family per se. Yes, we can blame the family demographic because, well, it IS bizarre but Mariah makes her own decisions and right now she’s choosing to torture her mother. Do I think Meri overindulged the kid because she was the only one? Yes, to a certain extent, it happens with mothers who are unable to have more than one child, and to be caught up in that type of environment where ‘birthing’ is a requirement of status, that had to be hard for Meri. Ultimately I think you’re both right – Mariah is an entitled brat who’s torturing her mother and Meri is a self-absorbed twit who didn’t do the best job raising her child. Honestly I don’t see their relationship ever working – ever.

        • rusty shackelford

          Mariah is a beast of Meri and Kody’s (sort of) making. However, she is a grown ass women at this point, she needs to grow up and show others the respect she demands. With that said, she has had a terrible example in her mother, who has the emotional maturity of a teenager. They are both to blame. I also have a complicated relationship with my mother and at times I really want to act like Mariah and just shut her out, but then I would feel so guilty for treating my mother poorly. I know that she will probably never change, but if I treat her like crap I will have to live my live knowing I’m just as awful and when the day comes that she passes, I want to know I did my best. Anywho, hopefully Mariah will come to this conclusion one day.

          • Sandy Wood

            It would wrench my heart right out of my chest if I were Meri, but I would have to look inward.
            It seems to me that even though Mariah is an adult by the calendar, she and most of the Brown kids have a serious case of arrested development. This is probably due to their home life, religious restrictions and haphazard parenting.
            Maddie, Mykelti and Logan are examples of young adults that rush headlong into the first serious relationship they have. I don’t see examples of them attempting to establish themselves as fully rounded individuals before taking on the responsibilities of marriage and parenthood. Logan and Michelle may at least complete their education before marriage, but that remains to be seen.
            You have taken a very mature approach vis a vis your relationship with your mother and I congratulate you for that.

          • rusty shackelford

            Thank you Sandy. Like I said, I’m just so grateful I’m not a Brown. As much as I want to bitch and moan about everything that’s not perfect, watching this show reminds me of how good I have it. Watching the first seasons, it’s so cringeworthy how Meri put Mariah up on this pedestal. She encouraged and enabled Mariahs diva behavior. Both of them need to spend some time in a third world country helping others truly in need, away from their tacky beige McMansions and get a grip on reality.

          • Sandy Wood

            I am just grateful my kids are grown and one of them a grandparent herself.
            As a single parent with 3 young teens and no family within 2000 miles, believe me when I say we went through some hairy, scary times.
            Somehow, we came through intact with a deep appreciation for what family really means and I am proud to say that to this day my kids and grandkids ask my advice…whether they follow it or not is another matter, lol, but the respect is there.

          • rusty shackelford

            You always have a great perspective on things (sister wives related) and you definitely know how to make people laugh Miss Sandy.

          • Sandy Wood

            Thank you rusty, you have given me many a chuckle too.

      • chacha1

        I respectfully disagree …. Meri is the bitch who can dish it out like she did to Janelle nd others but can’t take it … what goes around ……..

    • MsM

      As much as Meri annoys me too, Sandy, a lot of times kids who realize their sexual identity at young ages don’t say much to anybody. Society has such a huge stigma regarding homosexuality and in the “Kody Brown World of Religion” who knows what their ‘take’ on the prospect was when Mariah was 11 or 12? Was Meri a good mother? Probably not. But I don’t think we can fault her for not seeing the signs because there may not have been any – gay children growing up in religious environments many times work over time to shield themselves from possible attack – or, in some cases, protect a loved one from the truth because they don’t want to hurt or inconvenience the loved one because they know how that individual feels about gay people.

      • Sandy Wood

        I fully agree that a suppressive religious background could cause a child to hide their true feelings.
        The kind of openess that should exist between a mother/father/child should begin when the child is 5 or 6, with casual conversations inspired by events in other peoples lives. In my opinion, if this kind of dialogue is initiated when the child is young, there would be no hesitancy on the part of the child to come to a parent with anything that is on their mind.

        • MsM

          I agree wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, though, that’s rarely the case. Even parents who start those conversations early with their children some times have to wait years before the truth comes out. One of my children, who knew she was gay from a young age, was afraid to say anything, not because of me, but because of her father. She knew the ex would throw the fits to end all fits and she just didn’t want to deal with it. She waited 12 years before coming out to him and it went down exactly as she expected. I’d known fora while at that point, she didn’t have an issue coming out to me, her father on the other hand, she knew the reaction would be violent and cruel and she was right. (He even tried to harass me because he realized that I’d known and didn’t tell him, why would I? He was an ass…he remains an ass…but I digress…) Suppressive religious environments are some of the worst environments to be in, no matter what the religion. It stunts the children’s emotional growth and inhibits their ability to deal with social situations in the long run. Couple all for that with being gay and they live in fear a good deal ow the time Given the weirdness that Kody tosses out there I can only imagine what was going on in Mariah’s head.

          • Sandy Wood

            And that’s just it, MsM, your daughter innately knew that she was safe with you and by divulging her innermost feelings knew that she would be loved and protected under any circumstance.
            Mariah, for whatever reason, spent more time than was necessary agonizing over feelings she had, that she should have been able to share with loving, accepting parents…exacerbated by trust issues she has with Meri.

          • chacha1

            All that love and light that Kody is trying to shove down everyone’s throats this season is a huge failure as we have seen how he really is… he is a very angry abusive man and the kids are all bowing down to him making him the father of the year only to save the show and keep the money rolling in

          • MsM

            Well said Chach! Well said!

        • chacha1

          Going to catholic school I was taught to fear everything. Here we are, little children 6 and 7 years old and going to confession like we are sinners already. We sat in a dark booth with the priest hiding behind a screen and we have to confess our sins like “I did not listen to my parents” or “I told a lie” then we had to do our penance like 5 hail Mary’s and 2 Our Fathers …. On Good Friday we had to attend the Stations of the Cross where we saw Jesus hanging on a cross and was told he died for our sins … talk about fear and depression and it always seemed to rain on Good Friday making it more oppressive ……. during the 50’s and 60’s NO ONE would ever admit to being gay let alone talk about it and “gay” meant happy. When I was going to Beauty School, we all knew the few guys in the class were gay but never said a word to their faces …. those days they were called “Homo’s” SMDH

          • Sandy Wood

            Heh, “The Times, They are A’changing” and for the better, in some respects. Back in my day there was the “Q” word or more politely, “confirmed bachelor”. A lesbian was unheard of, but they must have been there…living lives of fear and shame.

    • chacha1

      I am so sick and tired of Meri going on and on about how she only had 1 child, yet lives polygamy with 17 other children and lets her husband screw and procreate with 3 other women……. then declares what a wonderful life it is when we all know Meri is not only a brat but is a hypocrite and abusive ….

      • Sandy Wood

        It seems to me that the toxic environment of polygamy is at the root here.
        Every mother competes for time and attention for her children as well as herself. This is second nature to Meri as she has been raised in it, so it’s normal to her.
        One outstanding example to me was when Mariah was graduating and Meri was unhappy with the view of Mariah “walking”. Instead of positioning herself for a better view, the whole tribe had to relocate. This was the first time I witnessed Robyn take on the role of family mediator…who needs Nancy, when they have the worldly, wise Robyn eager to impart her knowledge.

        • chacha1

          You are so right, I remember that nasty bitch Meri acting like she was the only person there that had a child graduate and threw a hissy fit, she has done this repeatedly ….. especially when she just had to have 5 bedrooms and a wet bar and her and Mariah went ballistic when their house was not ready by Christmas. Those two are selfish nasty bitches and I have no sympathy for Meri at all, she is a slug like Drippy …. they do nothing but abuse people and complain ….. all that time she spends in front of her computer making love to a banana when she could have done something worthwhile in her miserable self appointed lifestyle

          • Sandy Wood

            Aaaahhh the WET BAR…didn’t she whine for that because she claimed she would be doing all the entertaining. How come they all have to jam into Christine’s “liberry” when they have a family meeting.
            What kind of hosts are they anyhow…do you ever see them offering snacks or refreshments when they visit.

          • chacha1

            IKR ? she is too busy to display her pastries on her wet bar when she is displaying her feet and Banana for guys on the Internet

          • FreeMefromtheBrowns

            I think another real tell is when aspyn decided to move in with Robyn instead of the huge empty house Meri has!!!

          • Sandy Wood

            Very telling, Aspyn is in college and no doubt has to study a lot, it must be chaos at Robyn’s with 2 little ones, 4 bedrooms and 9 people.
            Also very odd that with all the love and light Christine portrays that she would tell her kids that once they leave home, there’s no coming back.
            Why not Meri’s, I can only guess that aside from Robyn’s kids, Meri has never bothered to connect with any of the other kids…some big happy family isn’t it.

  • CherryLimeDean3000

    The wrath of a brat scorned knows no end. Someone is making sure Mom pays… and pays… and pays…

    • chacha1

      Meri is so miserable yet she sticks around the cult de sac instead of going back to college so she can lead an independent life, and no one would miss her mean ass. Mariah has only seen her mother as a bully for her whole life and fighting with Janelle ….. so I am not surprised at her anger

  • Birdie

    Mariah is a second generation angry bish. She learned from the best.

    • Gidget911

      her dad.

  • CherryLimeDean3000

    Mariah is EXTREMELY immature and it pained me on Meri’s behalf to see Meri enduring such asshole-ish treatment. That was over the top. Clearly Mariah regards her mother with contempt and I’m sure it’s unwarranted.

    • StilettoCutsQuick

      I agree she acts, dresses and talks like a young teenager. She has a lot of growing up to do

  • Ronnie

    The times I have seen Mariah on the show, she always seems to act like she was the most special of all the kids. It even seemed a little attention craving. I have seen Meri always dote on her. Meri messed up due to a complicated set of circumstances including losing her identity in the family unit. Mariah may have been embarrassed by and disappointed in Meri but her treatment of Meri is plainly cruel. I hope the backlash allows her to reflect and mend her relationship with her mother.

    • Why is this happening to us?

      Only child syndrome…

      • Ronnie

        I think so too.

        • Why is this happening to us?

          I think there are a few things going on here: only child syndrome, Mariah making Meri grovel over the Catfish situation, and a parent who wants to be a friend rather than a parent to their child. We have seen Mariah throw tantrums until she gets what she wants- clearly she learned this from her mother!

          • Ronnie

            You are spot on!

      • Gidget911

        No, Too damn grown and no respect syndrome. She comes out as gay but her mom can’t get a little respect. Coming out should have made her sympathetic toward her mom because all moms are not cool with the lifestyle and her mom could have treated her the exact same way she is treating her mom. I am a little confused, because I thought they were religious and Mariah had no problem telling the world about being gay. She is piggish just like her dad.

        • Why is this happening to us?

          I think you are right about that!
          She’s an entitled little snot.

  • Oh Snarky Me

    Good. Glad to see Mariah is getting a big dose of reality. Her treatment of her mother is hypocritical. I hope she reads every word and thinks long and hard about her behavior.
