Madison tells the cutest story – when she was five, told Logan she was scared and he said he was not afraid of anything and that he would protect her from anything (even tornadoes). Kody calls Logan the perfect oldest child and I cannot argue with that! Also, how cute is THIS:
Another hard-hitting question: what is everyone’s favorite food? Christine’s Mock-tapioca – a fluffy cream of wheat style cereal thing and everyone LOOVES it. Their enthusiasm for this dish has made me curious. They’ve posted the recipe online here. Someone make this and tell us all how it is.
Knock, knock. Who’s there? MORE FUCKING QUESTIONS! Has Sin City tempted the family at all? They all laugh about the hookers because – obvies – they’re not into prostitutes. I bet no one in that room can even say the word “penis” out loud.
Kody rephrases the question to the teens: do they face more or less alcohol / drugs / etc in Vegas than they did in Utah? Madison says things are more accessible here but it was put in front of her more in Utah. The lines were blurred in Utah whereas in Vegas it’s more black and white: you’re either a goody two shoes or a party animal nightmare but it’s one or the other. Logan chimes in and says that you can be both, and Kody tells him to be wise with his choices. Hmmm. Logan is making out, saying fuck and maybe even dabbling in the booze? After being uber responsible and perfect for so long, is Logan rebelling? Or just pushing Kody’s buttons? This face makes me think its the latter:
“You are SOOOO easy, hahahaha!”
The adults agree that there is no temptation for them. Robyn doesn’t know how to gamble, so Mykelti starts to explain slot machines to her much to Kody’s chagrin. HAHA!
The next question is the one that TLC showed during the promo / opening intro / before each commercial: What does Kody take to take care of his wives sexually because she wants some for her husband. Mykelti’s reaction says it all:
Everyone is pretty much horrified by this question. Kody kicks out the teens, and Logan asks why they didn’t send them out before the question was asked. Looks like a little Karma from Dad for the “you can be both comment”:
“I boned your moms! Well look who is SOOOO easy now, hahaha!”
The teens don’t put up much of a fight; they bail quickly, clearly scarred. Kody says he is not comfortable answering the question. They don’t talk about their sex lives, not even with each other, period. Then why make the teens leave?
Another question from someone who does not watch the show: do the wives have different roles, like cleaning wife, bedroom wife, shopping wife? Why is TLC wasting our time with this question? Meri says that they all do everything. Duh.
Kody likes the next question: how many wives can you have and what is your religion specifically? According to Kody, they’re Mormon Fundamentalists. He compares the difference with his church and the Mormon church to the split between Catholics and Protestants. It’s fun watching Kody explain religion:
“So this is the church…wait…how do I make the steeple with my hands again?”
So there’s no wife limit but it gets crazy after 4. I think four wives looks pretty crazy, but that’s just me. Brigham Young had 27+. Kody wants to make sure he is nurturing and respecting each relationship. Meri chimes in – they knew right off the bat that they were going to be polygamist, but they were picky about who they selected to marry. Apparently they courted another woman who Meri became close to but it didn’t work out. Christine says four is a lovely number and she is fine with being done. YEAH, WE KNOW.
