“Sister Wives” wrapped up its most chaotic season yet with an even more dramatic ending: an emotional tell-all. During the Season 7 finale of the hit TLC series Sunday, Kody and his four sister wives — Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn — sat down with NBC News journalist Erica Hill to discuss the craziness that occurred throughout the installment.
The revealing, two-hour episode touched upon several topics, from Meri’s catfishing scandal to the relationships among the Brown clan. Check out all the jaw-dropping moments from the Season 7 “Tell-All” of “Sister Wives” below:
1. Robyn’s Thoughts on Having More Children
Kody revealed that he believed the decision of whether he would have more children was not up to him but his wives. Robyn then chimed in, sharing her thoughts on the idea of the Brown family growing.
“I don’t know yet,” Robyn said after Erica asked the mother of five if she was finished having children. “I wish I kind of knew so I could just start giving away the baby gear — just move on. But for me it’s inspiration and I guess we’ll just see ...”
2. Sister Wives Respond to Breast-feeding Swap
“For our situation it might be surprising just because we haven’t talked about it before. Just the fact that it happened I don’t think it's that foreign ...” Meri said of how she breast-fed Janelle and Kody’s daughter Maddie when she was younger.
Janelle revealed the reason Meri stepped in was because she wasn’t producing enough breast milk and her daughter was hungry. “... You’re helping out with the baby. I didn’t think it was weird,” she said.
“Sister wife perk!” Robyn added with a shout.
3. Maddie Shares Her Thoughts on Having Children
“Everyone in my family is baby-hungry,” said Maddie, who recently married Caleb Brush. “No matter how many babies are born there’s not enough! So I get that question a lot from my immediate family as well as my extended family and his family as well ... but what can you do? I’m not going to bring a child into this world when I’m not ready for it.”
4. Logan on Wedding Fever
Logan, who is currently dating Michelle Petty, revealed that in addition to his family having baby fever, they also have wedding fever!
“I think there’s some slight pressure because I definitely get — there’s like the sly comments that I get from the family and friends. With our family everything comes in bunches. Now that one of us is getting married, it’s probably all going to come in bunches.”
Logan went on to say he “thinks it could be happening soon,” which raised some eyebrows — including Michelle’s, who was standing behind the scenes during the taping of the tell-all.
“I don’t think it’s any secret how I feel for her,” he added before refusing to say anything else to not ruin any planned surprises.
5. Younger Kids Discuss Plural Marriage
When they sat down with Erica, the younger children of the Brown family revealed whether they would ever partake in polygamy. Here are their responses:
Ysabel — “I think I’m too young to decide.”
Aurora — “I’m open to it but I don’t know. I’m too young to decide if I want to do it or not. I think it’s cool.”
Savanah — “I’m going to take it as it comes.”
Gwendlyn — “I’m open to the idea.”
Gabriel — “I wouldn’t shut it down but I don’t think I’ll be living it. But if the right circumstances come along I’m not going to turn it away.”
Dayton — “I don’t have any plans very much at all. Things happen. God has a plan.”
Breanne — “I’m not sure. Might be cool to pass the tradition down.”
6. Christine on Mykelti Getting Married
Christine had a different idea of what Mykelti’s journey was going to look like and it didn’t involve walking down the aisle. During Season 7 of “Sister Wives,” Mykelti revealed she was going to marry her boyfriend of five months, Tony, which came as a huge surprise to her mother.
“I don’t even know Tony! But that’s kind of beside the point. Mykelti is just so young. She’s 19,” Christine said, revealing that she didn’t think her daughter was ready for marriage. “I didn’t know they were that much of a couple ... I don’t know him as a person and I certainly don’t know them as a couple. I need to know [that] before we can have this wonderful discussion and so that everyone can be excited for her — so I can be excited for her. I need to know him. She’s my daughter and I value her. She’s one of the most important people in my life.”
7. Kody Reveals If He Thinks Meri Cheated on Him
While discussing the catfishing scandal, where Meri was tricked into having an emotional affair online with a woman pretending to be a man, Kody told Erica he didn’t think his wife had been unfaithful.
“I think that she — she was just in place where she was having a friendship ... that’s how I viewed it,” he said, adding that the friendship turned diabolical and evil. “I don’t see it [as an affair] in that light. I don’t see it as an emotional affair as you call it. I don’t see that at all.”
