If you watch Sister Wives online, you will already know that Meri Brown has been somewhat isolated from the rest of her family.
On Sister Wives 9 Episode 10, Meri learned that she was left out of the birth of Maddie’s child and that all of the other sister wives were present.
The child was born at home, and Meri felt like she was purposefully left out because of everything that happened in the past.
Was it a miscommunication? Was it intentional? Meri was determined to find out … even if that meant putting herself further at odds with the rest of her family.
For Janelle, it seemed like a slight issue, and one she did not want to have hanging over the family like everything else.
The family went to their usual group therapy session, and, well, it was clear there was some animosity with everyone because of what happened.
“I’m trying to be rational, I’m really trying to let logic and calm thinking reign right now,” Janelle told the cameras.”But maybe because it’s involving Madison, but my mama bear…is uncaged.”
“This is my daughter, she’s giving birth,” she continued. “This is not about us, this is about her and the birth and protecting that experience for her. I’m kind of like, this is so idiotic that we’re dealing with this over a birth.”
Things went from bad to worse when the two women had a war of words about the situation at hand. The other wives reiterated that they had moved on from the past, while Meri seemed intent on dragging things out for dear life.
“I just feel like I’m kind of over this,” Meri said before saying that Janelle is never there for her anymore.
“It was a miscommunication at the beginning, but now I feel like…you’re not there.”
“The bottom line is we did not purposely keep Meri away from the birth,” Janelle added as a defense. “In fact, the whole time I was thinking where is Meri.”
Be that as it may, but if Janelle was really thinking about Meri, she would have made sure she was there. Pregnancies can be stressful times, but Meri was left in the dark.
Meri could be compared to a hurricane. Her emotions are always all over the shop, so it makes sense that the family would want to keep her away from a birth.
She has a knack for making things about her, and it looks like she’s doing the same this time around.
But Christine was the one who doled out the harsh truth that she would not have allowed Meri near the bedroom if she was in charge of the whole thing.
“You bring a lot with you when you come in a room, and you bring a lot of baggage when you come in the room,” she told Meri. “And I don’t know what to do with that.”
That was that, and the issue was far from resolved, but Meri made it clear she did not blame Maddie for all of the drama.
“I’m not critical of Madison at all,” she said.
“Madison did nothing wrong. Madison brought a new life into the world, and I have absolutely no issues with Madison or any of that.”
“All I feel toward her is love, and all she’s ever done is welcome me and accept me as grandma to this baby.”
She continued: “The hurt that I felt had to do with sister wives and Kody, because there are four of them who could have said, ‘Hey, wait a second, an important piece is missing.'”
This is likely going to be the argument that pushes Meredith away from the family for good, but at least she has her bed and breakfast to keep her busy.
