“Sister Wives” star Meri Brown’s birthday was last week but you wouldn’t know it from the social media accounts of her husband, Kody Brown, and fellow wives Janelle, Christine and Robyn Brown. None of them wished her a happy birthday, seemingly snubbing Brown on her big day.
She was alone for her birthday, though, as Meri’s daughter Mariah traveled to Flagstaff from her Chicago home with fiancée Audrey Kriss to celebrate.
Meri posted a photo on Instagram of the three enjoying a birthday meal and wrote, “Perfect birthday day with my girls! Living in Chicago, they miss @caferio and I’m a super fan of it, so it’s a win win!!”
“Happy Birthday! So happy you are spending it with your beautiful girls,” one fan wrote.
“Awe! You all look super happy celebrating together!!” another said.
“Happy birthday Meri. Nice having the girls there to celebrate with out. Have fun and enjoy your day,” a third commented.
There has been tension between Meri and her sister wives in recent years, especially when she moved to her new home in Flagstaff and none of them helped her move.
“I don’t want to hire somebody. I do not want to hire somebody. I want to have family around,” Meri said at the time. “I’d rather have my family come and help me put my stupid bag together then pay somebody to do it, because that would mean I would have some family interaction, which I think is really important.
“I get what they’re saying. Nobody wants to move,” she continued. “And at the same time, I’m feeling like their love and caring for me is conditional. ‘Well, we’ll love you if we can do something fun. But not if you need something done.'”
Robyn claimed that she didn’t help move because she was physically unable.
“Meri lives in this house built up the side of the mountain. So, she has these huge stairs all the way up the side of her house and every time I walk up those stairs, I about faint,” she said.
