Meri Brown has often been called the Lone Wolf in the show Sister Wives. While she has many admirers, her fans feel the rest of her family isn’t that close to her. Despite this, the star always remains cheerful and fills her social media with tons of positive and uplifting posts. It looks like a show producer has been extremely appreciative of Meri lately. That’s because he revealed in one of his interviews that she is solely responsible for making sure their show didn’t get canceled! What did Meri do to ensure this?
Sister Wives: Meri Brown’s Catfishing Storyline Saved The Show!
Meri, Kody, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn Brown have ruled over TV screens for many years. They are the main castmates of Sister Wives. Over the years, their plural family underwent many ups and downs. However, Chris Poole, the showrunner, revealed shocking information during his recent interview with Variety. He mentioned that TLC was on the verge of canceling Sister Wives many years ago. After the plural family moved to Las Vegas, there was nothing exciting happening in their storylines that would amp up their ratings. Hence, the show was close to coming to an end forever.
But, right around that time, Meri Brown came forward about virtually dating a man, Sam Cooper. Later that storyline unfolded to reveal the Sister Wives star was getting catfished by a woman called Jackie Overton. Hence, this exciting and dramatic plot twist was intense enough to let the show still be a part of TLC. So, one could say that Meri Brown was solely responsible for making sure her family’s reality TV careers still remained active. But things are incredibly different now.
In the last Sister Wives Tell-All, Janelle and Meri revealed parting ways with Kody. Christine was the first one to walk away, and the previous season captured her journey. So, fans are skeptical about what’s in store for the upcoming edition as the family dynamics have changed completely.
Sister Wives: Meri Brown Won’t Be A Part Of The New Season?
Lots of Sister Wives fans worried that now that Janelle, Christine, and Meri are not in a plural marriage with Kody, they won’t star in the new seasons. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. Christine had already confirmed through multiple hints and posts that she will still be a part of Sister Wives Season 18. But it looks like Meri Brown won’t have much screen time on the show. That’s because she moved to Utah to run her mother’s heritage inn. In fact, Kody and Robyn were the ones to send her away.
Moreover, reports confirmed that Meri Brown would be a part of the new season, but she will have less screen presence. That’s because Kody and Robyn still reside in Flagstaff. Now that Meri is in Utah, it is difficult for her to travel frequently to film for the show. Hence, fans won’t get to see her much in the new season. Despite this, Meri’s social media updates suggest she is doing well for herself and enjoying her singlehood. Keep an eye on TV Season & Spoilers for all the latest Sister Wives updates.
