Sister Wives Spoilers: Kody Brown Admits He’s a Coronavirus Danger To Wives
Sister Wives spoilers and updates reveals for star Kody Brown, the risk of becoming a coronavirus super spreader takes on new meaning. With four wives and 18 kids, Brown compares himself to a “rag doll” that’s passed around to all the family members.
But while you can toss a rag doll in the washing machine if a contagious person handles it, Kody faces challenges amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Sister Wives Spoilers – How Does Kody Brown Feel About Coronavirus Risk?
Amid the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, Kody just might be in a unique situation. He and his extensive family reside in Flagstaff, Arizona. And as we saw on the most recent Sister Wives episode, having four wives in four different homes has caused conflicting feelings.
The wives (Robyn, Meri, Janelle, and Christine) join Brown in trying to solve a problem that some of us also face (although perhaps not on such a how-do-we-social-distance-while-sharing-love basis). Kody is the person who travels among the households, putting the burden on him to take action.
“I guess right now my biggest worry really is if I would have to be isolated from members of my family long-term. In my mind, part of the healing process when you’re sick is that love and nurturing you get from your loved ones. I’m not going to not go care for a wife if she’s sick,” confessed the Sister Wives star.
Brown also reflected on the pandemic’s impact emotionally as a parent.
“I don’t want to not hug my kids,” stated the 52-year-old dad of 18.
But Kody was quick to emphasize that he understands the risks he presents to his family. Brown called himself “the most dangerous person in the whole family when it comes to COVID-19, because I’m going from house to house — I could spread it from house to house.”
Sister Wives Shows Plural Marriage In a Pandemic: ‘Finger-Pointing’ And Toilet Paper
Brown and his wives have developed a Sister Wives rulebook for their plural marriage. Robyn, Meri, Janelle, and Christine each take charge of her own home. And while Kody hinted he might not like it, he recognizes that it’s a fair arrangement.
“There’s this sort of thing that happens in our relationships, that I guess is only fair in plural marriage — the mom, the household belongs to her,” Brown said. “It just feels odd to me. ‘Okay, this is what you’re going to do.’ Well, wait a second, do I have a say in this?”
Consequently, with each of the four wives rather than Kody in charge of her household, Kody admitted to a conflict. Brown revealed that some women wanted to go into lockdown and quarantine, while others disagreed.
“You pick your side, literally,” sighed the Sister Wives patriarch. There’s almost a divide, like, ‘Oh, we need to quarantine right now,’ and others who are going, ‘You know what, why don’t we spread it around so we can all check and see if we’re immune … or if we’re going to get it.”
Ultimately, Kody worried about “finger-pointing” if one of the Sister Wives stars became infected with COVID-19. His wives, in contrast, focused more on their own family situations.
Janelle, for example, has two sons with varying schedules. She opted to have Brown stay outside of her household in the uncertainty of the pandemic.
And like all families in the pandemic, there was one looming question: Who used up the toilet paper?!
