Shockingly, there wasn’t always disdain from fans of TLC’s Sister Wives for Robyn Brown. Some fans admit they actually thought he was sweet and adorable when she first joined Kody’s family tree. Likewise, some fans even argued Robyn entering the family almost made polygamy look appealing.
As the series progressed, Robyn Brown flipped the script. Fans saw her true colors. They were disgusted with the monster hiding underneath the surface.
The question fans really have about all of this is simple. When did Kody Brown’s OG wives realize who Robyn really was? Was there a clear “aha” moment for Meri, Christine, and Janelle? Keep reading as fans dive into it.
Robyn Brown: Family Puppet Master
Sister Wives fans believe Robyn Brown slid into the position Christine was always intended to hold. The hot and sexy wife that captured all of Kody’s attention. His favorite wife. The trophy wife. Finally, the head wife.
While Kody Brown did what he could to fight off the idea that any of his wives were the “head wife,” Robyn appeared to have other ideas. Ultimately, fans are in agreement that Robyn was the puppet master pulling all of the family strings.
Janelle, Christine, & Meri Brown’s ‘Ah Ha’ Moments
Some fans believe Christine and Janelle “had Robyn’s number” from the very beginning. Others, however, point out that Christine used to talk about how sweet Robyn was when she first joined the family. So, they don’t think she always had disdain for her.
The OP of the Reddit thread discussing this believed Janelle Brown caught on to Robyn when Robyn, Kody, and Meri announced her divorce. The OP also jested that they question if Meri Brown has even realized Robyn is a bad egg.
Here’s what other fans think about the subject:
- “I think Christine and Janelle had Robyn’s number from the beginning. But they both dealt with it the best they could for the health of the family, until they no longer could. It’s Meri who I think was blind to Robyn’s ways until recent years.”
- “Christine knew when Kody announced he picked out Robyn’s wedding dress. She already wasn’t happy about Robyn being in the rotation pre-wedding, but finding out that they were keeping secrets from the rest of wives made her realize that Kody and Robyn had absolutely no respect for the OG3.”
- “Agree Janelle knew when Meri announced the divorce. When Janelle was fully over Robyn’s crap- when they were out to eat, I think shortly after moving to flagstaff, and Robyn started crying.”
Did Janelle Brown Always Know?
Many fans are in agreement that Janelle Brown was always the logical one of the OG wives. They argue Janelle understood Robyn early on. She, however, made an effort to keep her head in the sand. Others, however, believe it was Kody Brown divorcing Meri and legally marrying Robyn that really did the most damage and opened everyone’s eyes.
Ultimately, many fans suspect Meri Brown put on blinders and ignored Robyn’s truth because she was desperate for Kody’s attention. Sadly, it was no secret Robyn was the way to Kody’s heart.
