I do know that Janelle's mother married Kody's father and Kody's mother was not really happy with it until now when they are close to each other.

Can you all imagine what would happen if this lifestyle was in practice everywhere? What chaos!

How did Kody meet Robyn. Also, it cracks me up. They all say they want a new "wife" to join the family then they are upset or jealous of her(Robyn). Why the heck do they keep pushing new wives if they only end up being upset in the end? Also isn't there some sort of relation with Christine and some other relative in the family or am I just thinking of the Kody Janelle thing?

Kody and Meri were married for 3 years I believe before Janelle and Kody were married. Of course they already knew her as she was married to Meri's brother.

I know earlier in the thread people were discussing the jewelry on their website. Meri post this today on twitter, it was in two tweets but I posting them together. (I omitted the link to their site.)

"@MeriBrown1: Thank you to all you amazing fans for your purchases from my sister wife's closet and thank you for your patience as some of the items are currently on back order. Who knew you all would love them so much?! Thank you!! "

Somebody seems to be buying. I wonder how many of each piece was produced?

Maybe they are trying to create interest by making the jewelry seem hard to aquire.

It started tonight. Anybody else not surprised about the jewelry business not taking off? I've looked at the stuff on the website and there's NOTHING there I'd wear, let alone buy.

Yup and it's expensive. And Utah doesn't seem the most receptive place to SW lifestyles. I think jewelry business would be a good home based business for Robyn but it shouldn't revolve around the SW theme.

I'm guessing that the idea was for the show's popularity to translate into sales (to, you know, the fans) but if many watch it like I do out of morbid fascination, they maybe don't find the characters "likeable", let alone want to endorse or identify with the lifestyle. (For the record, I find Christine likeable enough and could actually see myself being friends with Janelle. Meri and Robyn? Just ewww.)

I looked at their website a long time ago. I don't remember the price but the stuff looked awful. Tonight's did look better but their website was down. Why is Mary always crying and for the life of her cannot make a decision? Janelle DOES work and acts like an important member of the sister wife thing. Christine is immature and thinks she does more than other women. Making faces and whining. Robyn cares about them and wants to keep it together. Kody is just having a hair swinging good ole time. I would sooo want to be going off to college and get out of the Cirque de Brown ASAP!

I was so not surprised the jewelry thing is not taking off. I don't think there is a huge market out there for sister wives themed jewelry. LOL And it's pretty pricey at that. The thing is, it's really Robyn's thing, Meri is just super supportive because she and Robyn are BFF's. Janelle is the one that has always worked, thrives in a working environment and just isn't a jewelry person anyway. She is the one I feel is most concerned with actually making a living in a real way. Christine is just bored and needs something to do, but again, jewelry is not her thing. Kody? He's just along for the ride with his wives. LOL

I'm looking forward to how things go with the new houses and how the figure out their income. I'm also really tired of the "will she or won't she" crap with Meri and Robyn and Meri having another baby. At 42, I think she really isn't into having a baby, but feels obligated to do so since Robyin offerred.

Has to be that.

Who would want their jewelry - especially with their stories behind the pieces? Oh, this is the ring I gave to so and so. Who cares?! That makes me not want it even more (not that I would want it in the first place). Just sayin'.

I live in SLC and happened to be near St. George so a friend and I went to that expo. I had no idea they were going to be there and was shocked to see them and their camera crew.

I looked at their jewelry (which it really bugged me they kept saying jewree) and some of it was ok but most of it just was not my style and it was definitely too expensive.

Their attitudes were very off putting and they almost seemed to be playing the "victim". I didn't see any happiness, joy, friendship or love between them. It felt forced, strained, uncomfortable and awkward most of the time I was there. I think we spent about 10 min looking at the jewelry and listening to their "pitch" but it was a long 10 min for sure. I was glad to leave!
