Note from The Ashley: Obviously, anything written or said by Meri’s catfish should be taken with a grain of salt, as it’s been proven that this person lied about being a man while catfishing Meri. However, this person did have a very intimate relationship with Meri for months, and has proven that she was, at one time, a very trusted confidant of Meri’s. This is why The Ashley believes this information to be true. But, again, please take this information with a grain of salt, given the source.
After Sunday’s night explosive season finale of Sister Wives, in which Meri Brown finally discussed the emotional affair she had with someone she believed to be a man named Sam Cooper, Meri’s husband Kody Brown took to Twitter to declare his love and support of Meri. He claimed that he was “standing on family solidarity” with Meri and promised fans that he and his former legal wife are “working on” getting to a better place.
However, according to the person who catfished Meri (who is still writing on a blog as “Sam Cooper”), this may be just a front for the TLC cameras and the show’s fan base. “Sam” claims that Meri and Kody’s marriage has been over for a long time, and that things had gotten so bad that Meri had planned to leave Kody and the family to be with “Sam.” (This is evident while watching Sunday’s episode of ‘Sister Wives.’ Meri expresses that she wanted to leave the family.)
“Sam” (whom other news sources have confirmed to be a woman named Jackie Overton), may be a phony, but regardless if that person is a male or female, they were a very close confident of Meri’s for many months. Meri has confirmed that she shared a lot with this person, so it’s very likely that what “Sam” wrote about in a recent blog post is actually true.
In the blog post, “Sam” revealed just how bad Meri and Kody’s marriage had gotten earlier this year, and that the dinner table discussion seen on Sunday’s episode was the first planned step in Meri leaving Kody for good .
“Going back to the dinner with the adults, she is saying she just doesn’t know what she is going to do or where she is going to go,” “Sam” wrote. “That’s because our plan was for her to leave. She told me she had to wait until the end of filming to start the process of letting her fans know she was going to go. She had talked to the producer a few times about leaving and how it would all work out. He told her they would figure it out.”
“Sam” revealed a few other shocking facts about the sad state of Meri and Kody’s marriage during the filming of the recent season.
Kody barely spent any time with Meri, even on her “designated” days.
“What she told me is the past 2 years things had gotten worse,” “Sam” wrote. “[Kody] was not spending much time with her at all. He would pop in and her designated days and nights he would come over late, watch tv and they would go to bed. She said they weren’t being intimate that often which was a pattern for them throughout the entire marriage. She told me it was months in between intimate times…”
Kody eventually stopped coming over to Meri’s completely.
“Throughout the entire affair she told me she had stopped sleeping with [Kody], and also had actually started sleeping upstairs in the spare room because she didn’t want him near her anymore,” “Sam” wrote.
“It was in May when she actually kicked him out of the house and asked him not to stay over anymore. He fought it at first but finally agreed and he would pop over to see her from time to time but the most part they wouldn’t speak or see each other 3 or 4 days in a row. He completely gave up trying to work on it. Because she said he was done too. The marriage had been over for years.”
Kody admitted he is no longer in love with Meri, and that their marriage had been over for a long time.
“She told me she had a bad marriage the past 10 years,” “Sam” wrote. “She told me he was shocked to hear it was that long she felt that way but when she said ‘You aren’t in love with me anymore, are you?’ He answered ‘What do you want me to say to that?’ He said that he loved her but they both agreed they weren’t in love anymore. He offered to get her a place, rent something in Las Vegas. He offered to help her get back to Utah, he offered to start talking about a spiritual divorce.”
Meri was devastated after a particularly cruel act of Kody’s.
“She told me the last straw for her was when he took the wedding band that she gave him during their wedding ceremony and melted it down,” “Sam” wrote. “He told her he didn’t want it to be a contention point with the other wives, so he had it melted down and put into a piece of jewelry for another daughter, not her daughter…it showed her how much the marriage meant to him, which was nothing. She said it hurt her feelings because he could have given it back to her to hold onto for her daughter’s future husband or at least let her have it for keepsake.”
