Curtis makes a joke about bringing on the ladies, and of course they all jump on it and tease him. Robyn brings it to Erica’s attention, and if it was anyone else this would not annoy me. It’s Robyn, however, and I’m still feeling sketchy about her:
“Erica, did you hear?” She’s probably not trying to start shit, but I can’t tell anymore. Robyn is the Kaiser Soze of Sister Wives.
Curtis’s wife is all “hahaha HELL NO!” Backstory: Curtis was already been struggling with whether he shared his family’s faith and then he met Erica and it sealed the deal for him to walk away from his family’s faith. He and Erica are Christian and monogamous. Curtis acknowledges that it makes Kody and Scott sad that he has not followed in their footsteps, but that they don’t love him any less.
The Brothers Brown motorcycle tour ends at the oldest bar in Las Vegas – someone fact check that please. Kody rides the grandpa bike while Curtis rides the more macho bike with Scott in tow:
The ladies have decided to show Erica a super Vegas time…Brown style! I have a feeling that means more crafts and less blackjack and showgirls, and I’m right! Doing Vegas Brown style involves ceramic painting and probably a trip to Applebee’s. Ain’t nothin wrong with that! Far less regrets involved than a baldy Vegas trip.
Janelle teases Meri that she’s not crafty at all. Meri keeps moaning about it, and I hear her. She’s doing her best. She’s making plates, Christine is making a flower pot, Janelle is making some kind of bowl, and Robyn’s making juice goblets…TWO juice goblets. Everyone who is making a special gift for her husband, raise your hand!
“As soon as I finish with this sponge, I’ll get my hand in the air!”
Erica tells the ladies that she feels blessed to have the Browns for in-laws, and that wherever the Browns go, you know there is a party. She was apprehensive about meeting them the first time, but found them to be wonderful. Erica is also not crafty. She describes her piece better than I ever could.
Erica’s piece titled “Bird Poop on a Sidewalk” – her words, not mine. I was thinking more “Spoiled Cheese”
The boys roll into the saloon, and Curtis is going to get them drinks – booze for him, ice water for Kody and Scott. Scott is clearly really uncomfortable being in a bar. Curtis handles their order like it’s no big deal and people order water at manly saloons all the time. The bartender is initially “WTF!?” The Browns win him over with their friendly charm.
“I’m sorry, did you just order water? Is this a joke?”
Kody tells us that as the oldest, Scott has always had to toe the line and set an example for the others; Scott always follows the rules. Kody lost his words for a moment and Meri had to remind him that the word he was looking for was rules. Kody is more of a rule bender. Color me not shocked at all. Point is, Scott is more serious because he has to be. Remember this tomorrow, it’s important for the recap.
Curtis asks Kody how he has been, and Kody opens the floodgates. The real estate situation is not great, the financial situation is not great. Scott commiserates with Kody on how hard it must be to live separate. Scott’s family is mindful of the fact that they are one family, not two.
Not Pictured: The giant weigh lifting off Kody’s chest after talking to someone who he neither fathered nor married.
Curtis thinks it is a good thing that Kody is getting some guy time in because he is surrounded by women. He knows he could not deal with having more than one wife. Curtis is simple and wants a simple life. Kody is complicated and wants a complicated wife.
