‘Sister Wives’ Mariah Brown’s Lesbian Girlfriend EXPOSED!

Posted on Mar 15 2017 - 5:30pm by BeachSpin

Mariah Brown dropped a bomb on her Sister Wives family during the last season of the TLC series—officially coming out as a lesbian.

Mariah denied that there was any romance in the picture at the time, but now there’s an official girlfriend in the Utah college student’s life. Mariah recently announced on social media that she is in a relationship with fellow Westminster College student, Audrey Kriss. Audrey did the same — and the romance was officially out in the open.

A post shared by Audrey Kriss (@audreykriss) on

Mariah’s mother, Meri Brown initially expressed shock at Mariah’s news, commenting, “I didn’t see this coming, I thought I knew my daughter…I didn’t.”  Meri has not yet publicly shared her thoughts on her daughter’s new relationship. TLC cameras did capture Meri expressing acceptance and support for her daughter, as the season wrapped.  

Despite the fact that the Browns’ church, the Apostolic United Brethren, labels homosexuality a sin, Mariah’s father, Kody Brown, and other-mothers, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn all immediately supported Mariah’s reveal.

“We’re just happy she’s figured out who she is,” Janelle said. “It’s tremendous when you see a kid do that.”

“You come from an Old Testament religion, you are not excited that your child comes out,” Kody commented. “I thought about this years ago, and I made a decision. My job as a dad is to love and respect and not to judge.”

Will TLC cameras be invited into the brand new relationship? Stay tuned.

    Congratulations to Mariah for having the courage of her convictions, however, if what we witnessed on screen was real, she lacked grace by making her announcement so publicly.
    We all complain about not enough real in reality TV, but some things are best revealed privately and initially to her parents.
    Mariah has watched her mother and at least 2 of her sister mothers submerge their feelings to maintain a facade of harmony and has chosen to follow her heart.
    This may just be enough to buy the Browns one more season.

    • Oh Snarky Me

      A lot of people posted that she’s a LUG and that it’s common at Westminster. I didn’t even know what that meant, but I can definitely see her as a LUG. She’s been raised by such an attention whore dad and her mother and the other concubines have always had to be over the top to get his greasy attention that I can see her following in the slug trail.

      • Sandy Wood

        Before I google LUG, is it something like “gay for the stay” ?

        • Birdie

          Lesbian Until Graduation—so pretty much.

        • BigBrothersMother

          Lesbian Until Graduation.

        • Oh Snarky Me

          Gay for the stay–there’s another new one for me!

          • Birdie

            They use that a lot in prisons–LOL.

          • Sandy Wood

            I think it refers to prison life.

      • KT

        This, I tend to agree with. Never liked Mariah — gay, straight or whatever. She seemed to have a bit of an attitude of entitlement because she used to be the one and only legitimate and also first born of the cult de sac kids. In the beginning she had a fair amount of air time. But as the show went on we saw her kind of fade into the background and more of Robyn, her kids, catfishing and then LOTS of attention on Maddie, Aspyn and then Mykelti. I’m not saying she’s doing this solely for attention, but I do think she wanted back in the spotlight. I had a niece who went thru this…..now she’s hetero again. Go figure.

        The best thing……..been missing my Sister Wives snarkers so I’m glad to “see” everyone again! 🙂

        Hope life is good for you Snarky!! Been t shirts and shorts weather out where I live in California while the East Coast is getting blasted with snow. Crazy!!
        Have been missing Snarky in Hoboken. Hope she’s OK.

        • Oh Snarky Me

          Hey KT! I’m in SoCal too so I’m putting on my sunblock today! Going to lay out and try to get some color on these chicken white legs!

          • KT

            Hey snarky! Didn’t know you were in California. I’m actually just north of San Francisco in the wine country but it’s sunblock weather here too. Sorry about just now replying……I was out all day.

            Happy St. Paddy’s Day! The hubby is 100% Irish so we will do a little something tonight……probably green beer and Jameson’s. As for me I will probably put a dab of green food coloring in a glass (or 2 or 3) or champagne!!

  • Oh Snarky Me

    OK, so what is it they’re fighting? Gay marriage is legal, gay couples can adopt or have invitro…so what precisely are they fighting? There are always going to be people who don’t like your lifestyle, shrug, that’s life. Our country is very tolerant and gay rights are protected.

    • Sandy Wood

      Chalk it up to the audacious arrogance of youth. What they fail to realize is that these hard won fights were fought by true heros 25 years ago.

      • Oh Snarky Me

        I couldn’t agree more! The people who truly suffered and fought–not these twits who have it easy because of those who forged the road for them.

      • Kate halle

        Hear hear

    • Birdie

      Shhhh–that gives know-it-all college warriors nothing to do with their free time.

      • Oh Snarky Me

        Yep, the need for attention and relevance

  • Birdie

    I really don’t care for Mariah’s bite my ass attitude, and have no interest in hearing about her love life. I hope TLC ignores her.

    • Oh Snarky Me

      I so wish they would ignore her, but you know her sperm donor will do anything to get another season on the TLC gravy train

      • Birdie

        Don’t remind me. Mariah’s g-friend will be invited to lead the next family flash mob before we know it.

  • CASHmeOutsideHowBoutDah

    Beach I missed you. I’m happy for Mariah. I hope things work out for them.

  • Sandy Wood

    There ya go Meri, you can take the hackneyed slogans on these placards and turn them into more wall art.

    • Birdie

      Yes..”NOPE” is especially catchy. She can hang it over her bed for Kody.

      • rusty shackelford

        Hahaha!

  • SassyMcAsspants

    At least she looks happy. We can’t say as much for most of the Brownholes.

    • Sandy Wood

      She seems radiant and honestly, it’s the first time I have seen genuine smiles out of Mariah, and I have watched from day one.
      I just hope it isn’t misplaced glee at sticking it to her parents.

      • SassyMcAsspants

        Yes!

    • CASHmeOutsideHowBoutDah

      I think Meri is happy, the catfisher and her gal pal persona were suspended on Twitter. #winwin

  • Yolie

    This is disgusting. Mariah should be ashamed of herself and her family must be mortified.

    • CASHmeOutsideHowBoutDah

      is it the shoes? perhaps the shirt she’s wearing? No offense but the “Brown” family should be mortified by their own behaviors as adults. There’s nothing wrong with being gay, there’s nothing wrong with having a same sex love interest, and there’s nothing wrong with sharing it on social media.

      • Yolie

        Homosexuality is a sin and Mariah is going straight to hell on the express train. She’s another loss soul (among many) who the devil dwells in. Turn the channel, don’t play in the devil playground.

        • rusty shackelford

          I don’t think you are going to convert anyone in the comments section of an article about a about reality tv polygamous family. By condemning strangers you’ve never met to hell, you are just turning people away from your faith. BTW- not very Christlike. Jesus said ‘Judge not less Ye be Judged’.

          • Sandy Wood

            Bravo Rusty!

          • Yolie

            I’m posting my truth and not attacking anyone on here. I think you should do the same.

          • Kate halle

            This is an excellent reply

        • CASHmeOutsideHowBoutDah

          well you’re entitled to your opinions and I am to mine, it’s hard for me to “sit by” and watch what I feel to be shaming for whatever reason but if this is how you feel, so be it.

        • Maggie

          I never knew people like you still existed, commiserations

  • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

    Is this a thing? To share personal messages for your significant other on social media? That seems so strange but maybe it’s a millennial thing? Her “shoutout” and the response just seem so impersonal. Are they really in a relationship or is this just an attempt to make people believe they are?

    • Yes , yes it is. Why would you even question she wants to make people believe she is. She is and happy, she is posting the same as if it was a hetrosexual relationship between 2 young kids in love. It is the same.

      • rusty shackelford

        I don’t think anyone is doubting her sexuality because they have something against gay people. I think there’s doubt because she’s a Brown and comes from a family of liars and attention seekers.

        • Sandy Wood

          Love your new avi Rusty, you can dress him up, but he’s still an asshat.

          • rusty shackelford

            Hehe thanks Sandy! This was from that CNN interview him and clan just gave. Unfortunately you can’t really tell how bloated and round he looked due to the avi size. Dang. Oh well.

          • KT

            Hey Rusty! Totally agree with your comment about them being attention seekers. Didn’t know about the CNN interview. What was that about?

          • rusty shackelford

            Well from what I gather the state of Utah recently passed a law putting tighter restrictions on polygamist and they had Kody and his concubines on CNN to get their opinion last week. Robyn was just dying to jump in and give her opinion and at one point she interrupted Kody. If you watch closely you can even see the Caveman Glare directed her way. Also you know anytime a camera is present Robyn will be digging for eye boogers and inspecting them on camera.

          • Sandy Wood

            Loved that interview, showed them up on national tv to be the attention seeking hounds they are.
            Notice not one peep out of Meri, just nodding in the appropriate spots and there was Robyn nodding like a bobble head, just waiting for her chance to interrupt.
            And of course, no appearance by Robyn would be complete without the digging and checking of the contents of her eye sockets.

          • rusty shackelford

            The constant “UH HUH UH HUHS” from Robyn made me feel on edge. She was just like how my dog gets when I grab her leash and head for the front door.

          • Sandy Wood

            lol, nice simile to your dog, I tend to think of them as trained seals, but yours is better, they seem to be awaiting any positive reaction from their master.

          • rusty shackelford

            I just don’t get his appeal but maybe you’re on to something. Maybe Kody has a whistle that only women with low self esteem and bad taste can hear?

          • chacha1

            LOL

          • KT

            Ha-Ha….good one!

          • rusty shackelford

            Jannelle is definitely the trained seal of the bunch. I don’t think she’s tries to please Kody so much because she wants to be his favorite but because she wants to be seen as the serious adult of the wives. But that analogy is just so fitting for her!

          • Sandy Wood

            Yes, they all have their roles to play. Janelle knows she will never be viewed by Kody with deep unabiding love, but she will cling to her role as the “smart one” and “loyal one”. What more could a girl want from a lifetime commitment than to be known as a good money manager.

          • chacha1

            hey Sandy …. Janelle also uses big words she can’t even spell and good advice since those grifters filed for bankruptcy 3 times in the past

          • Sandy Wood

            LOL, maybe that WAS her advice, beats paying for your purchases.
            The rest of us can just smile and pay up instead of scamming the system.

          • MarcoPolo

            Robyn always talks like she has a mouthful of marbles–what is that all about?

          • Sandy Wood

            IKR, I have to watch with the closed captions on. Meri is almost as bad, she refuses to recognize the letter “g” in a suffix.
            Janelle and Christine have clear, crisp diction, so I don’t think it’s a geographic, regional thang, just lazy, sloppy speech patterns.

          • KT

            Thank you Rusty!!! And, I apologize for my very, belated thank you.

          • rusty shackelford

            My pleasure KT!!!

          • Birdie

            Just watched…and OMG they blame the law and supposed legal oppression for the actions of Warren Jeffs—they don’t even blame that disgusting piece of evil scum for anything. The stupidest part is that they are fighting for what they already have—what a bunch of fame mongering morons they are.

          • rusty shackelford

            Amen!

          • mary lin

            I’ll have to look for that. Anything that makes that dickhead look more ridiculous, I’ll watch!

          • rusty shackelford

            Well you know that’s not too hard Mary Lin! But it is pretty entertaining.

        • Oh, I know Rusty. I do know. I was being facetious, guess it didn’t go over too well. LOL

          • Sandy Wood

            I hear you Rochelle, it’s easy to be mis-interpreted when voice inflections and facial expressions can’t be transmitted when typing responses. It’s happened to most of us.

          • LOL, yeah. Oh well. Tis but a silly TV show. <3

          • rusty shackelford

            Eh that’s ok. Whatcha going to do?

      • MarcoPolo

        Because she was raised in a twisted cult that exists to present themselves as something they’re not.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Watch the show,then comment. You don’t understand the family dynamic.

      • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

        I have zero problem with who she wants to date—not homophobic in the least. I’m generation X so I don’t understand all the ins and outs of how millennials communicate. None of my friends have ever gone on social media and written a message like that for their significant people unless maybe it’s the partner’s birthday. If any of them did, I would wonder why they’re suddenly trying to convince everyone how great their relationship was. lol The people I know generally just communicate things face to face (especially to a significant other), not on social media so to me it seems a little strange.

        • RealitytvJunkie

          Even if you were homophobic, that’s right. No need to explain yourself to anyone.

          • Violet~Princess Pumpernickel

            Thank you!

  • DOn don donnnnnnnn! Lesbian…Exposed!!!! They are posting they are in a relationship. Welcome to the 21st Century!!!!! LOLOLOL. No disrespect Beach, I adore your posts. But the title made me laugh. Yes, this is how the youngins talk to each other on social media folks. They let it all fly for everyone to see. Nothing new or shocking. She has come out, and has a girlfriend now. Good for her. Whys should she hide it, or actually why is anyone shocked. If people were really that shocked and…”disgusted.” They shouldn’t be watching BRAVO at all. This is what BRAVO is.

    • CASHmeOutsideHowBoutDah

      you mean TLC right?

    • MarcoPolo

      It’s TLC–and you clearly don’t watch the show. This family is made up of hypocritical liars who preach a religion that shuns homosexuality. Mariah could be finding her way–or she could be angry, confused, or s plain old attention whore like her slug family. Time will tell.

    • chacha1

      The look on Kody’s face when she told him she was gay was a look of disgust, also her mother was glaring at her ….. they are hypocrites and liars and TLC buys into their lies …… Kody is a lazy asshole who wants the money and will do anything to keep his lazy ass on the couch at Robyn’s Ho House …… Robyn may be married to him now but she still is a HO, she slept with a married man and hides behind their fakery

    • RealitytvJunkie

      First off, this is TLC show not Bravo. Secondly, you clearly don’t watch the show or you would understand the article a lot better. And in all fairness, I’ve seen the EXPOSED title for heterosexual celebs that hide their love interest and the media exposes it. Why should it be any different when gay celebs love interest are exposed? Frankly, you sound uncomfortable with gays and homophobic with this comment. I’m offended.

  • justanothermary

    Maybe this will help Kody come to grips with his own sexuality.

    • chacha1

      he is an arrogant pervert who thinks he is all that and dances like a chicken having a seizure

  • chacha1

    Kodythe Dick with the Drips is seething with anger over this but spews his light and love to keep the show… that is the only reason he says he supports, respects and loves his kids …. BULLSHIT Drippy Dickie, we all saw the look of disgust on his face when Mariah told him what her big reveal was.

    • Sandy Wood

      Mariah must harbor a lot of deep resentment to both of her parents. She no doubt sees right through the phony act of light and love.
      The “In yer face” way she made her announcement was a cruel twist and symbolic of the way she respects their parenting.
      There is always the possibility that this had been previously revealed and this was all staged for more drama to keep them TLC dollars flowing.

    • mary lin

      He will do whatever it takes to keep the train rolling. Exploit his “wives” and spawn for all they’re worth, so he doesn’t have to pick his lazy ass off Robyn’s sofa. I loathe him.

  • KT

    Thanks Beach!!! Been wondering what’s going on in the cult de sac but also missing my fellow Sister Wives posters, so thanks for giving us some news to snark about!!!

    Hope you survived the recent nor’easter! Meanwhile, I’m out for my daily walks in a t shirt and shorts cuz it’s 80 degrees out here!!!!

    • Sandy Wood

      Hey there KT, nice to see you in the “off season”…thanks to Beach for keeping us updated.
      Thanks too for the weather report, we are enjoying a -8C/17.6F spring day.

      • KT

        HI Sandy!!!!! BRRRRRRR!!! California born and raised so I don’t know from weather. But I guess you just put on your big girl panties, bundle up and go!

        🙂

        Nice to talk to you because it’s a little lonely out here today so thanks for making my day!!!

      • rusty shackelford

        The Off Season!! Love it Sandy

        • Sandy Wood

          HaHa, just think of us as players on temporary hiatus.
          Nice to have a practice session during the break from regular season.

  • JerseyCountess

    Are there Lesbian polygamists?

    • chacha1

      According to the Brown Family they will be anything you want them to be for the right price and TLC falls for their bullshit over and over again …. now we will have the same sex wedding and Kody is already playing the “I accept” game for the money when we all saw how disgusted he was when she announced she was gay ….. the real Kody is the one who told Logan to “piss off” in Hawaii because they wanted to go to a Luau and try pork. His eyes got real angry and he was talking thru clenched teeth … Kody is a very abusive man and we catch him all the time

      • rusty shackelford

        Or the time he became disturbingly angry simply over his kids pitching names for baby areolla. Or the time the family was celebrating with the Recommitment Ceremony and taking family pictures. Kody went from abusive to phony happy faster than the time it took Robyn to ruin the family.

      • Curious

        Not to mention the biggest baby ever, he was sitting on the floor “playing” while acting like that!! It’d be funny if it wasn’t so immature and disgusting!!

    • Sandy Wood

      Probably, they just can’t be AUB polygamists.

  • Sandy Wood

    Unless Mykelti convinces Tony to leave mainstream Mormonism and Logan has a change of heart and influences Michelle to adopt AUB, Kody’s planet will be sparsely populated in the afterlife.
    It seems that as his offspring are reaching the age of majority, they are casting off his indoctrinations.

  • rusty shackelford

    Screenshot from the CNN interview right as Robyn is inspecting her eye boogers. Also WTH is Meri’s face so red? Shouldn’t it be orange?

    • Sandy Wood

      Thanks for putting this out there rusty, it amazes me with Robyn SO sensitive to criticism, that she continues this revolting habit. She must know that it has been noticed and commented on and yet she persists. It’s one small step above nose picking.
      With regard to Meri’s red face, notice the redness on her upper chest too…seems to me like a menopausal flush.
      Kody is a rubber face, but that is one of my favorite expressions to see him wear. It always reminds me of Alfred E. Neuman (Mad Comics) “What, Me Worry?” when he is trying so hard to come across as earnest and sincere.

      • rusty shackelford

        It is suppring especially since Robyn likes to try and present herself as an ultra feminine refined lady. Kodys face looks so doughey and round. With the suit and tie combined with his pedophile haircut, he looks especially creepy. That’s an interesting point Sandy about the menopausal flush. Obviously more children naturally is out of the question, and we know they are too selfish to consider adoption. Looks like she’ll never have that perfect wedding where she can star as Mother Of the Bride.

        • Sandy Wood

          Too bad Sam turned out to be a Sham, he did promise Meri little Meri-ettes in their future.

          Even if Mariah never finds her one true love, male or female and decides to marry, Meri has 15 more opportunities to play wedding planner-zilla. She just needs to keep her lularoe raggedy cardy and her clipboard handy and away she goes, large and in charge.

          • rusty shackelford

            Exactly Sandy! But you know it won’t be the same since that means she would still have to share the spotlight with the real mother of the bride.
