Fans were curious about why the Brown family from “Sister Wives” suddenly moved to Flagstaff, Arizona in 2018, and many didn’t believe the family’s reasons for uprooting their lives in Las Vegas at the time. Now, following the newest season premiere of the show, which takes place solely in their new city, the family is speaking out about just how stressful the decision really was.

In the Season 9 premiere, the family started to unload as they arrived in Flagstaff, but the joy was short-lived, as it quickly became clear they weren’t as welcome in their new city as they thought. Not only did Meri’s new neighbors complain about her being there and pressure her landlord to back out on their rental agreement, but the cops were called on her as well. As such, she quickly found herself moving back to Las Vegas and staying in her old home while she waited on a new place in Arizona.

During the episode, Meri took to Twitter to discuss the situation, admitting she found it difficult to live in a different state from the rest of the family during that time.

Fans expressed concerns during the episode about why none of the other three wives—Janelle, Christine or Robyn—decided to open up their own homes to Meri during that time in order to keep her in Arizona with them, which led to Janelle speaking up about why it wasn’t a possibility at the time.

The trouble with the neighbors wasn’t the only thing that the family struggled with, however. In addition, the family faced struggles financially, as they not only dealt with paying for rental properties but several mortgages. At the time, none of their homes in Vegas had sold, and they were also paying for the mortgage on their Coyote Pass property—leaving them in a financial hole that was difficult to maintain.

Overall, it appears things were certainly challenging for the Browns as they started over fresh in their new homes—and fans will continue seeing how that played out as the season continues.

“Sister Wives” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. EST on TLC.
