Christine Brown’s aunt never saw polygamous union with Kody Brown as ‘real’
“Sister Wives” star Christine Brown’s daughter Ysabel accused her dad Kody Brown of having “screwed up” priorities when he chose to not travel across the country with her mom for her scoliosis surgery on Sunday’s episode.
“I think his priorities are a little screwed up,” Ysabel, 18, said in a confessional while getting emotional. “And l don’t want to disrespect him because he is my dad and I understand, I do. I do understand why he’s doing it, it’s just really frustrating and really, really hard.”
She added, “I think I’m a little upset that he can’t go because he’s always talking about how family comes first. But when it comes down to it, I need him there, and he’s not putting his daughter above the fear that he has of the pandemic.”
As for why he chose to stay home, the patriarch referenced his strict COVID-19 travel restrictions he put in place for his family members.
“I’m not traveling with Christine and Ysabel on the way to surgery, I’m not going to surgery, I think it’s very risky,” Kody, 52, said. “I also feel like a total hypocrite if I’m not keeping the rules that I’m asking — begging, literally begging — everybody to keep.”
Christine added that her daughter was, “really hurt that Kody’s not here.”
Kody shares Ysabel with Christine, who ended their 25-year “spiritual union” in November – though they were never legally married.
“Thank you for supporting me with leaving Kody. The decision was a long time coming and I feel like a much better person divorced than I ever did,” Christine told a fan via Cameo shortly after she announced the split. “Life is so great. I had no idea life could be simple.”
The former couple also share 5 other children: Asypen, 26, Mykelti, 25, Paedon, 23, Gwendlyn, 20, and 11-year-old Truley.
Kody legally married first wife Meri Brown in 1990, but they divorced on paper in 2014, so he could legally marry Robyn Brown a few months later. Kody is also with a fourth “wife,” Janelle Brown, with whom he also has an unofficial “spiritual union.”
“Sister Wives” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
