The “Sister Wives” family could be getting a little bigger if Kody Brown gets his way. A friend of the reality TV family alleges the dad of 18 is looking for a new way to keep their TLC series fresh, sharing he’s thinking about adding two new women to his already expansive brood.
“He wants to stay relevant to TLC,” Kendra Pollard tells Life & Style. According to the source, Brown “has zero source of income” without the TLC series, which he has starred on for several years with his wives Meri, Christine, Robyn and Janelle Brown. The magazine reports Kody simply can’t “risk losing that paycheck.”
While Pollard doesn’t directly comment on Kody’s rumored idea to introduce new wives (or allegations at least one of his wives is considering walking out if he pursues the idea) in the piece, she does reveal he is in fear of the show being canceled.
“Kody is really, really sweating losing the show,” Pollard said. “He’s doing everything he can to keep it.”
This isn’t the first time Pollard has claimed Kody is seeking a new wife. She told In Touch Weekly in April that he wanted to find a “younger” version of what Robyn “used to be.” “He’ll most likely drop one of the other wives,” Pollard said. “Kody’s main goal is to keep the series going and to make money. He’s a snake.”
Kody legally married his fourth wife, Robyn, who was introduced to the family in 2010, in December 2014. He divorced his first wife of 25 years, Meri, in order to do so. The marriage allowed for Kody to adopt Robyn’s three children from a previous marriage. Kody and his four sister wives share 18 children together. He welcomed his youngest, daughter Ariella Mae, with Robyn in January.
The seventh season of “Sister Wives” concluded in June with a dramatic tell-all reunion. At this time, it it is unclear when or if TLC will renew the show.
