‘Sister Wives’ By the Numbers

Sister Wives Cast

The fourth season of Sister Wives ended last month and, so far, TLC has not released any new information as to whether or not the show will be renewed for a fifth season. (The Ashley has no doubt the show will be picked up, though. The ratings are good and people continue to be fascinated by polygamy!)

‘Sister Wives’ premiered in September 2010, and, since then, we’ve learned a lot about the members of the Brown family. Here, The Ashley breaks down the show using only numbers!

1 Number of wetbars in Meri Brown’s new home

1 Number of dates it took Kody to tell Robyn he loved her.

(According to the family’s book, Kody said the “L” word the very first time he went out with Robyn alone.)

2 Number of ex-husbands the Sister Wives have

(Jenelle and Robyn were each married before they married Kody).

3 Number of times someone in the Brown family has filed for bankruptcy.

(All of the Brown adults except for Robyn have filed for bankruptcy at one point or another. Kodi and Meri filed together since they are legally married.)

  1. from what they (network) choose to air, I find merrily to be the most selfish& I’m constantly yelling thru the screen at her..


  2. Did anyone else wonder why Meri had such an epic hissy fit about having a wet bar when none of them drink alcohol?


    1. Because she needed the extra space to layout the pastries! Completely logical to me – one mustn’t be so gauche as you use a card table you know.


      1. Ugh – *to use a card table.

        I don’t know what you use to layout your pastries, so I’m don’t know if you are gauche or not. 🙂
