Fans have watched throughout the current season of “Sister Wives” and noticed that there appears to be a divide between Meri Brown and the rest of her family, especially when it comes to the move to Flagstaff, Arizona. Now, it’s being reported that ever since her Catfishing scandal, Meri has been basically “cut off” emotionally from the family, and one Sister Wife in particular.

In a new interview with In Touch, Kendra Pollard-Parra, who claims to be a good friend of Robyn Brown’s, revealed that Christine is the Sister Wife who has mostly checked out when it comes to a relationship with Meri, who has basically been an outcast in the family ever since she believed she had found love online with a man named Sam (who turned out to be a woman named Jackie).

“Meri’s betrayal still has run pretty deep in the family and it’s not going away,” Pollard told the magazine. “[It] was a lot more intense than they tried to make out in the beginning.”

When it comes to Christine, her focus is mostly on working on her own relationship with Kody and making it stronger, and as a result, any relationship she has with Meri has suffered.

“She has cut Meri off emotionally,” she said. “She doesn’t want to deal with the emotional side effects of Meri’s bad choices.”

On the show’s most recent episodes, fans not only saw a confrontation between Kody’s first and third wives but also witnessed as the family overall seems to be operating independently of Meri. Not only was she turned down when she asked for financial help to get the inn of her dreams in Utah, but there was also tension as the family worked out the logistics of their move to Flagstaff—with it being hinted at one point that the family was “moving on” without her.

However, Pollard also indicated that it’s not just the catfish scandal that has driven a wedge between Meri and the rest of the family, saying things have always been this way, and that Meri basically only shows up to do anything with the others because of her commitment to the show.

“[She] has never fully connected with the family to this day,” Pollard said. “She still is only invested in herself and her needs, and she’s really only there for TV purposes and her contract. Nothing’s really changed with that. So no, Christine and Meri do not have a loving, sweet relationship. They don’t really talk and Christine doesn’t trust her at all. She doesn’t trust any of her motives and doesn’t think any of her moves are good for the family.”

“[Meri is] only with them to film,” she added. “Her whole focus is on her career with LuLa Roe, which she’s very successful at, and her daughter. As far as the family goes, they’ve never tried to reconnect with her. They’ve never done anything to benefit her—that's why she made her choice to make her business be completely independent from them. ...She’s literally all on her own.”

However, Meri isn’t the only one that Christine has reportedly had issues with when it comes to a relationship outside of her marriage. She has allegedly always had issues with Robyn, writing in the family’s 2012 book that the timing of Robyn and Kody’s courtship, which was when she was pregnant with her youngest child, Truely, made her feel as though she had been “pushed to the side” by her husband.

“Kody and Robyn’s courtship came at a time of huge personal upheaval,” she wrote at the time. “I was pregnant with Truely, and we had also entered new and uncharted territory as we began filming ‘Sister Wives’ for TLC. When Kody started courting and then married Robyn it really rocked me. I gave birth to Truely and was suffering from extreme postpartum depression. I’d never thought I’d feel such a sense of loss and such crippling jealousy, I thought I was better and stronger than that, I really did.”

“I couldn’t see myself as Kody’s wife,” she added. “Instead I felt inconsequential, as if I’d been pushed to the side.”

Back in 2016, Pollard also told Life & Style about alleged issues between Christine and Robyn, stating that Kody’s third wife wanted to rip the other’s eyes out because she felt she was “obnoxious, spoiled and a home wrecker.”

Interestingly enough, some fans believe that Kody overall favors Robyn to his other wives, causing the jealousy, and even moved the family to Flagstaff for her, after her son, Dayton, got into college in the city. She and Kody have both maintained however that the move was solely because the family never intended to stay in Las Vegas forever.

“Sister Wives” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EDT on TLC.
