On Sunday’s episode of “Sister Wise,” Cuddy Brown’s toddler brought a bitter element to a very awkward scene when she suggested that her dad and his ex Christine Brown “go on dates” to fix their marriage. .
At the end of the episode, members of the Brown family who are natives of Flagstaff, Arizona gather in Christine’s backyard to say goodbye to her and her daughter True, now 12, before they leave the family and move to Utah. gone
At the end of the hard goodbye, Cody and his fourth wife Robin’s daughter Ariella Brown (who was five years old at the time of the film) had a question for Christine.
“Why did you and Dad break up?” he asked.
“We weren’t in love anymore, you know?” Sometimes that happens,” Christine said to her ex-sister-in-law’s daughter.
Christine assures Ariella that they still hang out with her occasionally, but Ariella has other ideas. “Make dates!” He suggested innocently.
“Oh, well, that doesn’t always make everything right, my dear, but thank you, what a nice idea,” replied Christine with fake happiness in her voice.
Christine and Cody announced they were separating in November 2021 after more than 25 years of “spiritual” marriage. In previous episodes of “Sister Wives”, it was established that one of the reasons Christine left Cody was that she and her children felt that her family with Robin was more important than hers.
In season 16, Christine said in an interview that it’s hard for some of her daughters to “respect” Cody because they see him as “likeable”.
“And they struggle with how it’s obvious he’s more comfortable in some homes than others,” she added. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Cody was staying at Robin’s house because she had young children and was following strict guidelines for travel, social distancing and disinfecting household items.
In a solo interview on Sunday’s episode, Christine said she felt “weird” answering Ariella’s question. She added that she knows “everyone is wondering” why she’s leaving Cody, but that Ariella is so young that she’s “brave enough to ask.”
Robin has a hard time accepting that Christine is leaving Cody despite the tension between them. She has mentioned on previous episodes of the show that according to their sect’s Mormon faith, Christine and Cody are “not divorced” until Christine is “physical with another man”. All the Brown adults agree that these rules don’t apply in this case because Christian no longer believes in faith.
Reflecting on the tense scene in her backyard on Sunday’s episode, Christine noted that Robyn’s older daughters from a previous marriage (who Cody legally adopted) seemed “angry” at her as they said goodbye. .
“No, my kids weren’t angry with him,” Robin told the camera in a solo interview. “They are innocent parties in all of this, all of them are children.” He said leaving Christine’s family was “devastating” for everyone.
“Sister Wives” airs Sundays at 10pm ET on TLC.
