‘Sister Wives’ Star Meri Brown Shares Cryptic Posts on Instagram About Being Loyal, Possibly Aimed at Husband Kody Brown

Raise your hand if you’re frizzy-haired husband has your leggings all in a bunch.

It appears that there continues to be trouble in plural-marriage paradise for Sister Wives stars Kody and Meri Brown.  

Days after Kody and Meri opened up about their relationship on ‘Sister Wives,’ referring to their 30-year union as “amicable” and “dead,” respectively, Meri –- one of Kody’s four wives –- may be reflecting on the couple’s current status.   

In a series of cryptic posts on her Instagram Story, Meri hinted that she is struggling with some issues, possibly involving her “dead” marriage, based on the context of the posts. 

“Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you,” the first post read. 

A second post referenced forgiveness, specifically “when it’s undeserved.”  

The ‘Sister Wives’ star later reposted a third quote to her Instagram Story, which mentioned dealing with things and people that you can’t change.

“Don’t get so worked up over things you can’t change or people you can’t change,” the post read. “It’s not worth the anger build-up or the heartache. Control only what you can. Let go.” 

In a post shared to her Instagram grid Tuesday, Meri opened up about finding happiness, creating boundaries and more. 

“I’m often asked how I do it,” she wrote. “How I keep going and doing, how I stay positive in tough situations, how I have such drive and determination. Well, don’t be fooled, I have those days when I need to self care, to take a break, to walk in the mountains and trees, to give myself ‘me’ time. And also, I’m not always a positive ray of sunshine, I spiral with the best of them!” 

Exhibit A.

Meri said other days, she loves, serves, finds the joy in little things and sends positive energy to everyone, while avoiding hate because “hate kills” the joy in her and takes away her energy. 

“This is a hate-free zone.”

“Don’t get me wrong, I feel all the feels and emotions,” she continued. “I feel grief and sadness and pain and frustration and happiness and passion and confidence and love. If 2020 did anything for me, it was to give me the time and space needed to wrap my head around things around me, to learn about me and how I interact with people and the world, to look in the mirror, and I mean REALLY look.” 

Meri said she’s created “boundaries of toxic behaviors” around her, which involved blocking people on social media who speak negatively about her or her family. She noted that there are people in her life who support her and lift her up, “whether physical or emotional.” Even with her support system, Meri told her followers “it’s OK to not be happy 100 percent of the time.” 

“I personally shoot for about 10 percent.”

“It’s OK to go through all the emotions of life, because how would you know what joy felt like if you didn’t know pain,” she wrote. “It’s OK if the best thing you do today is to wake up. It’s OK to create the best world for yourself, whatever that looks like for you. It’s OK for you to feel. It’s OK to be you. YOU are OK!!” 

In December, Meri addressed rumors that she and Kody had split, following months of speculation brought on by another round of her cryptic Instagram posts. At the time, Meri insisted that she and Kody were still together and she was happy with him, despite what viewers have seen (and continue to see) on ‘Sister Wives.’ 


Just weeks ago, Kody revealed on the season premiere of ‘Sister Wives’ that if he had it to do over, he may not choose the plural marriage life. 

“I’ve told friends recently that I didn’t want to be an advocate of plural marriage anymore,” he told Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn. “Because I am more aware now than I ever was before about the apparent and obvious unfairness in the relationship. I have all the love I want, and you guys feel like you’re pining constantly for me to give you some [love].

“Four women? What was I thinking?!”

“Plural marriage, what know about it, I wonder if I would do it again, knowing what I know and knowing how it’s hard on all of you,” he continued. “Don’t get me wrong, I like my life. If you guys complain to me very much, it sticks in my head and I wonder if you like your [lives].”

  1. I hate these cryptic posts. If you’re not happy in the marriage, work on it or leave. You don’t get a prize for staying in an unhappy marriage.

  2. She wins the Big Ego prize for reality-show participants (not “stars”). How many times did Meri use the pronoun, “I?”

    And breaking news: Nobody needs your permission, Meri, to be in a bad mood or to take time for one’s self, blah, blah, blah. We know “it’s ok,”..,okay?

  3. They need to cancel this show It is boring and annoying and not even worth watching.. Christine should have never become a polygamist She should have been a one-man woman with her jealousy issues and Mari she just needs to move on meet somebody new and start a new life.. Janelle she would just be a good business partner with Kody & last but not least Robyn she’s just a big baby who got what she wanted and they should just stay married and it should just be the two of them.. I think this show is ridiculous and they need to do something else to make money but, not be on TV..

    1. Vickie for something not worth watching you sure know a lot about it. It’s almost like, you watch it.

      1. Maybe Vicki reads The Ashley (or another blog, or just entertainment “news”) and gathered her intell from the recaps—much the same way I’m able to hold my own in a conversation about TM shows.

      2. Maybe she watched years ago. Nothing has changed with them. The location might be different, but the situations are the same.

    1. Yes, and how she’s behaved with selecting a lot is proof of how difficult she is. All the tears and fights and it turns out she apparently doesn’t know which lot she wants. No wonder kody suggested one for her. And how did she not know the house on the lot with the trees would need to be built in the trees. Even I know that from last season. Huge pain in the ass.

  4. He’s had buyer remorse since the 2nd week of his marriage to her. These two should have parted decades ago. Staying doesn’t make one Jesus. It makes them a loser. There’s something to be said for realizing your mistakes and taking corrective action.

  5. She obviously didn’t take a close enough look in the mirror at her brows. Posting motivational and self help quotes is not a substitute for actual therapy and working on oneself. Has she watched the episodes and seen her body language and how she interacts with the family? And posting passive aggressive quotes aimed at Kody doesn’t scream “be the one that forgives” like Jesus. Whatever she’s communicating it’s not rainbows and sunshine or confidence and happiness. Did she really say she’s not always a positive ray of sunshine? I don’t think anyone is suggesting that. It’s sad how little awareness she has. I really hope she’s doing some sort of one on one therapy.
