“So the neighbors contacted the owner of my rental. I had a conversation with the owner. Pretty much, the first thing she said to me was, ‘Meri, I am second-guessing the fact that I approved you to rent this house.’ She asked me if I would consider leaving the house and not renting from her,” Brown revealed in the interview while being joined by her sister wives and their husband, Kody Brown.
“Well we told her everything, we disclosed everything,” Kody added.
“I was like completely open with her. They put it in the contract, in the rental contract. She knows we’re a plural family, she knows we’re going to be filming in the house,” Meri then said.
“So she wants you to leave. She wants you out,” Christine Brown then chimed in.
“By the end of the conversation, you know, she was just like, ‘I need to rethink this. I need to consider whether or not I want to have you continue renting from me,'” Meri Brown added.
“But that’s not up to her,” Kody said “Cause the contract, it’s actually up to you and me.”
Meri concluded the clip by contemplating what she should do.
“If I walk away, what does that say about me? Just being a chicken? Is that like, letting them win? Because of their bullying? Cause that’s what it is, they’re bullying me, they’re bullying the owner to kick me out because they don’t like who I am without even knowing me,” Meri said. “If I cave and I let them bully me out of this house, then they win.”
