Meri acknowledges that jealousy can be a real challenge for the ladies. We flash back to her telling Kody in Season 1 that she wanted him to acknowledge that she was struggling with jealousy; she even asked him to think about how he would feel if she had another man. Kody’s response? The vulgarity of the idea with Meri and another man sickens him. No word on whether or not that means he understands.
Back in the present, Kody jokes that he wants to be excused and we’ve reached another SUPERSLAP! moment. Does talking about how hard it is for your wives to share you sexually make you uncomfortable? Imagine what it’s like for YOUR WIVES! Seriously, it’s bullshit for him to avoid the harsh realities of polygamy and leave his wives to work it out amongst themselves. You signed on for this too, buddy. You’ve made your four beds, now you have to lie in all of them.
Meri asks the wives if they have ever experienced jealousy, and Christine says that she has been jealous of Meri and Janelle in the past but it was totes no biggie compared to how jealous she was of Robyn. And we’re BACK to this discussion again. I am so over the Robyn vs. Christine battle that Christine is waging, and I’m pretty sure everyone else is too. This is turning into the Sister Wives version of Angelina Jolie vs. Jennifer Aniston. Does anyone care anymore?
ONCE AGAIN we get to hear Christine explain that she was the last wife for years and years and when Robyn came along, it was so hard blah blah BLAHOMGMOVEONALREADY.
Kody has an example of a time Christine was jealous and wants to share it, which proves that he knows absolutely ZILCH about how his words and actions make other people feel. What man in his right mind would be like “let me help you illustrate to the nice people watching how crazy you are!” SUPERSLAP! Meri suggests that he get permission from Christine, so Kody whispers a reminder of the incident to Christine and she tells him that the incident in question was not about her being jealous, it was about Kody being a dumbass. Let’s judge for ourselves!
So apparently Kody was on a date with Christine to celebrate her birthday, and somehow the date involved going to a music store – two things: one, this must have been quite some time ago if they were at a music store like Tower or Wherehouse since most of them have shut down and two, why were they at a music store on her one special day of the year? ANYWAY – at the store, Kody picks out a CD and Christine got all excited because it was a CD she wanted and she assumed that it was for her, and that her husband had remembered that she wanted said CD. In the car, she asked Kody if they could listen to her CD and Kody tells her that the CD was for Meri.
Survey says….Kody is a dumbass. RETROACTIVESUPERSLAP!
Christine fields the next question and lets everyone know that she will decide if they answer it or not. She’s tired of the difficult / probing questions and wants a few fluff questions instead. Frankly I think the questions they’ve been answering have been super easy compared to the questions most people would want to ask them, but that’s just me.
Christine doesn’t have to answer the next question because it’s for Kody. The question – will there be another wife in the future? How does Kody divide his time as it is? The short answer is that Kody will not take another wife because his current wives are already lonely and missing him much of the time. He won’t commit 100% to not marrying again since he thinks it’s important to keep an open mind. After all, if they had been hellbent on stopping at three wives, Robyn would never have joined their family. Everyone who thinks that would be a bad thing, raise your hand!
Robyn says that Kody better not be interested in a fifth wife. Well look who’s determined to stay last wife! Robyn isn’t going down the Christine path of jealousy and displacement if she can help it. The ladies jokingly ask Kody if he’s found someone again, and Kody keeps his mouth shut because talking right now will only get him into trouble.
