Emotions run high in the Brown family.
In this week’s episode of Sister KonerKody, Christine, Meri, Janelle and Robyn sat down one last time to have a brutally honest conversation about their relationships with each other and family.
“A year ago, when I was looking at my and Kody’s relationship, I really felt like I couldn’t stay, but I hadn’t decided to move yet,” Christine told the group. “I looked at our relationship and how I felt, I just came to think that this is not a relationship I would wish on any of my friends.”
Kody, 53, who has been transparent about his anger over Christine’s decision to leave, fired back with his own take on the situation.
“This is what I remember. You were interested in the family, not the man. That’s been your mantra,” Kody told Christine. “But it was about the man and not about the family. And that, I think, is where my anger is. That’s why I’m struggling with this, because we’ve invested and invested and invested and it wasn’t about family, it was about the man. And that’s my frustration, and that’s also my indictment.”
He continued, “I’m angry that you weren’t willing to invest in the family, but you were only interested in what I could do for you—me as a resource for you. And it breaks my heart, because now we at this point where it’s just over and it’s done.”

Last November, Christine announced on Instagram that her spiritual marriage to Kody was over. In September 2021, she moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, and still lives there with daughter Truely, 12. (The exes are also parents to son Paedon, 24, and daughters Aspyn, 27, Mykelti, 26, Gwendlyn, 20, and Ysabel, 19. Kody has a total of 18 children between the women.)
“I thank you for ripping the band aid off so quickly because it would never work if it was all about me, which you always indicated it wasn’t,” Kody said.
Robyn, who has expressed her sadness at Christine’s departure, fought back tears during the discussion.
“This is awkward. They’re kind of playing out their relationship in front of us, but if they talk, I think there’s always a chance for a miracle,” she said during a confessional. “People get close to divorce and then change their minds all the time. She can say she’s divorced, but in my head she’s technically not, so I’m just like, ‘Well, maybe they can talk about this ‘.”

At one point, Kody lost his temper and yelled at Christine, “Man, just the knife in the kidneys all these years! The sacrifices I’ve made to love you. Wasted!”
He later explained his outburst in a confessional interview.
“I feel like for the last 14 years I’ve soaked it up with her,” he said. “I was just trying to be a loving husband, and now that she’s gone, I just wanted to give her a piece of my mind with that goodbye. It’s not my fault. You did it, is what I want. I don’t care if it’s not fair. That’s how I feel. She did this.”
While Christine admitted her choice was difficult, she knew it was the right decision.
“I think it’s one of the saddest conversations I’ve ever had,” she said. “However, I don’t regret leaving at all.”
