Why I Can’t Wait To Watch Sister Wives on Sunday
This new TLC show is all of my favorite reality shows in one.
The Kardashians have been, I must say, until now, my favorite reality show family. When my previous favorites, the original Girls Next Door, Kendra, Holly, and Bridget went their separate ways, I must say I missed them, but the Kardashians and their ample booties more than filled Hugh Hefner and his blondes’ vacated spot. With those extensions, professional athlete husbands, and custom Bentleys, this family is my one guilty pleasure and overindulgence in every sense of the word – like that one day of the week when you cheat on your diet. Well, not my only guilty pleasure, I do still pay attention to what those Lifetime made for TV adulterers are up to from time to time.
When I heard about the new TLC show Sister Wives, I couldn’t believe there was a reality show family that was about to rival Kourtney, Khloe, Kim, Rob, Kris, Bruce, and company’s insanity. Sister Wives stars Kody Brown and his three wives, Meri, Janelle, and Christine – and their 12 children, which their parents lovingly refer to as a “sister from the same mister” or “brother from another mother.” It’s like they went and took the female energy of Girls Next Door and the marriage drama and chaos of having multiple mouths to feed from Jon & Kate Plus 8, added some spice, and served it up fresh!
Sure, I miss the days of Kendra’s crazy antics, like the episode when she flashed Parliament, but Kody’s wives are already dropping some one liners in the trailer that rival the insanity of Hugh Hefner’s former gfs. Christine addresses the questions outsiders ask when hearing of her non-traditional family structure when she says, “Some people think, ‘How do you feel when he’s off with another woman and you know they’re having sex?’” Christine just shakes her head and deadpans, “Well gosh darn it…they better!”
