‘Living In A Delusional World’
On Sunday’s episode of TLC’s reality series “Sister Wives,” Christine’s impending move out of Arizona was seen to be drawing nearer. However, Kody Brown and some other family members found it difficult to accept that Christine was leaving the family after several decades.
“I’m living in a delusional world where I’m wishing that Christine wouldn’t leave,” Kody shared in a confessional, which appears to have been filmed in 2021. In the scene, the polygamous father is also seen reminiscing about his daughter Ysabel’s birthday and graduation party.
Kody disclosed in the episode his deep desire to have Ysabel attend a college close to their residence in Arizona in hopes that he could “maintain some quasi-family relationship” with her mother.
“Kody is not one to hide his emotions though. He’s more gonna show you how he’s feeling, and I think he’s just super sad,” Christine shared in her own confessional interview, per Insider. “And it’s bittersweet. He loves Ysabel, and he hasn’t spent enough time with her, and I think he’s probably realizing that.”
Why Christine Brown Left With Daughter Truely
Christine planned to move to Utah with their 12-year-old daughter Truely, whom she bore for Kody. In a previous episode of the show, Kody aired his unhappiness with the fact that Truely would be leaving so far away from him.
“I’m disgusted by this idea that she’s moving and she’s gonna take Truely and move to Utah,” he said per Insider. “Truely’s my child.”
While Kody strongly opposed the idea of Christine leaving with Truely, the female reality star believed that leaving had more pros than cons.
“What I’m looking for is a place to envelop Truely in family,” Christine told cameras in a solo interview. “I can take her to a better support system where she’s surrounded by love.”
The mother of six then shared that Truely wasn’t still untouched by the controversy in her then-marriage, unlike her older kids. “I would rather take her away from this situation before she clues in,” Christine added.
Christine Brown’s Departure Upset Her Fellow ‘Sister Wives’
Elsewhere in the recent episode of “Sister Wives,” Robyn, Kody’s fourth wife, opened up about Christine’s decision to leave the family. She seemed to opine that the couple should have tried harder to sustain their relationship.
“Why isn’t this something worth fighting for? Why isn’t this something worth staying for?” she said in a solo interview, per Insider.
“I don’t know, I’m just one of those people who hopes constantly that maybe something will spark for someone, and they’ll just go, ‘Oh, this is worth figuring out and sticking around,'” she added.
Christine and Kody publicly disclosed that they were splitting in November 2021. Unlike Kody’s legal marriage to Robyn, the polygamous father and Christine were never legally married. The pair has six children during their marriage, Truely, 12; Ysabel, 19; Gwendlyn, 20; Paedon, 23; Mykelti, 25, and Aspyn, 26.
Christine Brown Stopped Believing In Polygamy
Away from the reality series, Christine shared in an interview with People a few months ago how her mentality about living in a polygamous marriage started to change in 2018.
“I started thinking maybe this isn’t working for me,” she told the publication.” And then I stopped believing in polygamy. I realized I didn’t really want to live it anymore. I didn’t like sharing a husband or feeling like I wasn’t important.”
Regarding her new life after leaving behind her over 26 years of marriage to Kody, as well as her fundamentalist Mormon faith, the mother of six shared that she does not regret her actions and is enjoying her new life.
“I get to live life for me,” the 50-year-old gushed. “My whole world has changed, and every single cell in my body is happier.”
