Sister Wives’ Meri Brown reunites with Kody & Robyn for birthday party after vowing to follow strict Covid rules
MERI Brown reunited with her husband, Kody, and sister-wife Robyn for a family birthday party despite their strict Covid house rules.
Sister Wives star Kody has created a set of serious guidelines for his family during the pandemic, causing many arguments.
The reality star took to Instagram Live on Friday to check in with her friends and fans while attending Robyn's daughter Ariella's birthday party at the family home in Flagstaff, Arizona.
While filming, Robyn popped her head in to say hello, as Meri disclosed the reason for their reunion.
"So this is Robyn Brown, just in case some of you don't know," she laughed in the camera.
"I'm here for Ariella's birthday party," the TV personality explained.
Robyn then chimed in: "Ariella's birthday party was mermaids this year."
Later, Kody also jumped into the video to say hello to viewers.
Meri's reunion was a rare occurrence as the Brown family patriarch has created strict rules in light of the Covid pandemic.
The multi-page list of restrictions included wiping down groceries and mail with Lysol wipes, and a two-week quarantine after traveling or having visitors.
Kody's requirements have increased tension in his relationships with his three wives and children, and he even threatened to "evict" two of his sons for not following the rules.
The TLC star clashed with his wife Janelle, 52, over the boys' socializing during the Thanksgiving holidays in an explosive argument, which ended with Janelle telling him to "f**k off."
He told the mother of six that she should be alone on the holiday because her sons have been seeing too many people and would put everyone else's health in jeopardy.
Kody told her to "respect" the "big picture" regarding his rules, but she said she didn't want to be alone and declared, "You know, f**k off," before storming away.
They also went head to head over Gabriel, 20, and Garrison, 23, living in Janelle's house.
The irate father thought they should move out because they had been breaking his Covid rules and if they remained at Janelle's, he wouldn't be able to go over.
Janelle said Garrison is saving up to buy a new house, but can't afford one yet due to the rising cost of real estate in Flagstaff.
Kody hit back, saying Garrison needed to figure out his problems on his own.
In his confessional, Kody said: "I tolerated a lot for a very long time until I realized that I was being lied to or deceived.
"And at that point, I sort of lost my patience with it, I'm like, you just need to make the boys move out.
"I'm on the verge of washing my hands of it. I'm gonna have Gabrielle and Garrison move out of the house. You've got a good car, you go get a job, here's some cash. Bye."
