On Sunday’s 자매의 아내: One on One 삽화, Christine discussed her reaction to finding out that Kody, 53, said he was not physically attracted to her.
“It was terrible to hear. And it’s super embarrassing,” admitted Christine, 50.
“I just got to thinking you know what? It really just goes both ways,” 그녀는 계속했다. “I really just wasn’t attracted — after he said that I was kind of like, '오, well then I’m done. It’s over.’ It was almost a relief. I’m not going to keep fighting for this or trying if you’re not attracted to me. So everything that I’ve done for you and for the family means nothing.”
Kody has lost his sister wives at a rapid clip in the last few years: Christine and Kody 그들의 결별을 발표했다 11 월 2021 after more than 25 결혼 년. Sunday’s tell-all special also confirmd that Kody and second wife 자넬 브라운 가졌다 separated. And the episode also revealed that Kody had ended his 32-year marriage to first wife Meri Brown.
에피소드 중, host Sukanya Krishnan asked Kody’s only remaining wife, 로빈 브라운, what she would do if he was no longer physically attracted to her.
“This is the thing. I’d march his butt into a therapist so fast,” 그녀가 말했다. “I would not allow him not to talk to me. I don’t allow that. We’re going to talk. We’re going to work this stuff through.”
Krishnan then asked Robyn, “How do you force someone to be attracted to you?”
“You don’t,” Robyn responded. “I do think his attraction is based on that person’s behavior. He has a tendency, and I’ve watched him do this thing where he’s upset with a wife and then he’s struggling and then that wife like kind of turns a new leaf or they talk and they figure something out and she’s being supportive and kind and he just melts. He’s like they hung the moon and they are amazing. I’ve watched him do it over and over.”
While Kody was initially in denial about Christine leaving their nearly 26-year marriage, he says his reaction was a result of long-standing issues in their relationship.
“I was ambivalent. I was trying to be stoic about it,” 그는 말했다. “[크리스틴] is a game player. From the time we were married — manipulation, pouting, temper tantrums, just behavior things.”
그는 계속했다, “Some of the games that were happening were when we moved to Flagstaff, 애리조나. I was trying to reconcile with Meri. And Meri gave me this really cool birthday present and I’m in this place expressing to Janelle, Christine and Robyn that I might reconcile with Meri. And Christine lost her s— 그 날. She’s comes to our family party and leave yelling to one of the kids that she was in a loveless marriage. This is two years before she kicks me out.”
