Question #2 is a super softball question – how is the weight loss going? Janelle has made fitness a part of her lifestyle. Meri was sticking with it until the ski accident put her out of commission. That being said, she’s recently lost 8 pounds but offers no explanation as to how that has happened. Christine and Robyn stay silent so I think we can assume they haven’t seen the inside of the gym for a while. That, or their responses were too boring for TV. I would have though Christine would have stuck with the gym to get her flirt with Bill the trainer on.
Question #3! Does Kody spend more time with a wife after she gives birth so he can help with the baby? Kody says the answer is yes! Of course it was easier when they lived in one house because he could focus on one wife without completely alienating the others.
Robyn praises Kody for his dedication and the work he has done for her since Solomon was born and just when you think you’re about to throw up dinner if she utters another syllable, Meri snaps and sarcastically notes that Solomon wasn’t the only one Kody was babying. BURN! Robyn is getting more confident in the family so instead of crying / whimpering / backing down, she retorts that this has been her only experience with Kody and a newborn, and she thought he was great! Aaand….SUPERSLAP! The subtext of her statement:
“Maybe he didn’t dote on you, but that’s your problem. Fourth wife fo’ life!”
“Well that’s disappointing. And Christine was just starting to like her!”
Robyn should get a merit badge in Passive Aggressive Communication. Meri concedes that Kody was doting and attentive to the wives after the birth of each child, or at least that is what she has observed since she’s only given birth once. Man, baby conversations are booby trapped with baggage for this family. Robyn blathering on about Kody’s attention to her and her baby in front of the other ladies reminds Meri she can’t have kids, Christine that she’s not the newest anymore, and all of them that he’s doing the no pants dance with Robyn. GOOD TIMES!
Question #4 – What is the deal with the criminal investigation in Utah? It’s easy to forget that the the family is in Vegas instead of Utah because they’re fleeing a criminal investigation. According to Robyn, there are press filming their homes on the regular. She also notes that the family has no idea what the status of the investigation is because they have not been notified either way. Is it just me, or is a criminal investigation involving your husband something you would want to keep tabs on?
Question #5: what are the dos and don’ts when looking for a sister wife? Janelle starts to discuss how it’s a religious thing that is difficult to explain, when Kody interrupts that he has a piece of advice – open communication! Don’t go courtin’ a potential sister wife unless your current wives are aware and on board!
Question #6 – what is Kody’s favorite trait of each wife and what is each wife’s least favorite trait of Kody’s? Kody goes all Admiral Ackbar on us:
I will use any excuse ever to reference Star Wars.
Kody asks the ladies to go first and then he’ll answer. Janelle hates Kody’s sensitive sense of smell, to which Kody responds defensively that sense of smell is not a personality trait. Here, let me help Janelle rephrase it:
“You’re right, Kody. I don’t hate your sense of smell, I hate the inevitable whiny nonsense that spews out of that hole in your face once you smell something you don’t like. I also don’t appreciate the implication that my home is unclean. Here’s an idea: clean out the fridge yourself if it bothers you so damn much. Is that better?”
