Season 18 of Sister Wives has ended, but Robyn Brown is still reeling from the loss of her sister wives, and is now seeking professional help to come to terms with her current marriage situation.
The only remaining wife of Kody Brown revealed to People that, while she never imagined herself being in a marriage of monogamy, she’s doing her best to navigate the new reality, while also dealing with a spouse who faced not one, not two, but three breakups within the span of just over a year.
“No one should be married while they’re going through a divorce,” Robyn told the outlet. “It’s been hell.”
Robyn admitted that she’s now seeing a therapist to help her recover from losing her
close friends sister wives Christine, Janelle and Meri Brown.
(As The Ashley previously told you, Christine confirmed in November 2021 that she was leaving Kody, followed by Janelle in 2022 and Meri in January 2023.)
As Robyn had revealed during the Season 18 Tell-All, she reiterated the claim that Kody has tried to both “self-sabotage and sabotage” his one and only marriage in the months following his many divorces.
“I’ve had to work hard not to let him,” she added.
“I feel like we failed,” Robyn said of the multiple splits that went down in the Brown family. “The commitment we made–- we were all in this together. We screwed it up.”
Now, however, just Robyn and Kody remain together in the relationship department, and according to Robyn, that will never change.
“I never thought I wanted to leave,” she said. “I know how much I love Kody.
“He’s doing his best,” she added.
Earlier this month, Mykelti Brown– daughter of Kody and Christine– took to her Patreon account to discuss the current mental state of her dad and his wife after a follower commented that Robyn in particular seemed “very depressed” on ‘Sister Wives.’
“I thoroughly agree,” Mykelti said, adding that Robyn also seems depressed in “real life” and not just on TV.
“I really think she’s struggling,” Mykelti’s husband, Tony Padron, added. “For sure. She’s not exactly going through something easy. None of them are.”
Mykelti–- who is one of the few Brown children who is not estranged from Kody and Robyn–- went on to say that her dad was “100 percent” experiencing depression.
“I think my dad has been experiencing depression since, honestly, COVID … and adding to that depression is the loss of relationships with his kids, the loss of his wives, and all of it kind of builds up and builds up and builds up,” she said. “And my dad, he got angry, he got self-sabotaging, and he got dark.”
Mykelti noted that while “losing everything he knows” had added to her dad’s depression, she believed it had “been a long time coming.”
In his own interview with People, Kody admitted that trying to remain cordial with his three exes for the sake of the children they share has been difficult.
“It’s been painful, a lot of finger-pointing and blame,” he said. “But you have to hope we still have a friendship in the future. Because we’re bound forever through our kids.”
