Season 9 Spoilers, Speculation & Social Media

Just watch a little of Meri's LLR live sales. She's as sour a person there as she is on the show. 

And she's one of their top sellers, and got to go on a paid cruise?  Gawd, those people are pathetic.  Why do people pay to be abused by a ZeeList celebrity?

I'll never understand shit like that.

I included it as an example of "reality" shows, in general.  I've spent too much time hanging out with Hollywood workers-not the "stars", but the camera folks, boom operators, on set make-up artists/manicurists, background music makers~folks who never get screen time, but have actual experience in the making of the fake reality of "reality" TV.

The pilots that are shot and shopped are a dime a dozen and most don't ever go anywhere.  The majority that get bought and aired are of the "who you know and who you blow" variety with the premise being a big dollop of scandal, taboos and sex.   For example, if it wasn't for Kim Kardashian "leaking" a sex tape, most of us wouldn't know who the hell she and most of her family are and keeping up with them wouldn't have made anyone any money.

I don't believe for a minute that the original premise was to show polygamy in a positive way.  Just like "Naked and Afraid" wasn't produced to show nudity in a positive way, or 19 and counting was designed to show the absence of birth control in a positive way.  As evidenced by the majority of posts here and on social media, the pearl clutching and outrage is real~that's what the networks want and buy.

Just my 2 centavos.

Sister Wives exists because Big Love existed. 

Puddlemonkey came up with the idea in 2009 they asked around and found the Browns, then pitched the idea to TLC.

Only the cruise is paid for by LLR. Transportation costs aren't included. From what I read there were approximately 3,000 people on board.

Thank you for that link!  I was a Big Love watcher, and it's interesting to know the origins of Sister Wives.

I have never heard of Puddlemonkey before.

We will get to watch and hate watch for another season, it seems.  I'll be DVRing tonight,  and watching/snarking in the a.m.

I would agree with you on the "Big Love" precedent, but I also think that the raid on Warren Jeff's digs in 2008 probably helped the green light shine on the Sister Wives reality project.  Sex, scandal and taboo sells.

Please note this is not my post  - I am copying from another online snarking site for sister wives just because I couldn't stop laughing.

if the person who did write it posts here please please take credit! and Also, please post more.

As for the upcoming Two part Tell-Nothing" episodes, one has to wonder in anticipation of these iconic Kodyworld wastes-of-time epps....

1- Will Kody Idiot do a repeat of his performance last season, and again glare with caveman hostility as he flips the bird to all non-sycophants?
And will his hair be even more distracting than his usual crazy darting eyes and moronic words? Could he be any more disgusting than he has been this season????

2- Will all the Kody-babes be again properly festive, sporting their usual "tell-all" drag-queen eyelashes?

3- Will Sobbin once again win the coveted "tears and sad-eyes" spot, or will Meri give her a run for the trophy this time?
And will Sobbin come out of the shadows she seemed to be placed in this season, and resume her chosen role as the "voice" of the Kody gals, regaling all with her acute wisdom and vast knowledge of all that is Brown trivia and history?

4- And will Meri be all decked out in five layers of LuLaRoe so as to be safe and guarded....and will she have her Utah-bound suitcase discreetly nearby just in case.

5-Will Janelle, as usual, be wearing fun shoes to stare at during the filming?? Or will she still have a bit of that likely producer-directed spunk we saw a bit of in the most recent epp? And will she Strive to wear a top that covers what needs to be covered while sitting like she does??

6- Will Christine be shrieking and gesturing with the pure delight of being high on good meds, along with being high on Kody's list of wives he tolerates...and will she have fresh x-rays to distribute?

7- Will the yet undisclosed moderator break with SW "Tell-Nothing but BS" tradition and ask actual questions that make sense, and solicit actual answers???

8- And ...Will TLC really do another season with this crew, using story lines now negating just about every premise/plot/truth they pitched about them all for the past 8 years?

I have not moved from my couch for most of 48 hours, except to take my baby (dog) to emerg vet for reaction to rabies shot. We are together now on the couch, when he could not walk I carried him. I had feed him, brought him water, got him pain meds.  He is my love and heart and became my responsibility when I adopted him. That responsibility is an honor.

Now the horrid memory  of how they treated this pour soul comes back...I believe Meri was not wanting to bend all the way over to clean up after their dog, so they basically killed him. (sorry, I was going to write put him down, but they had him killed) That is a Dill breaker, and I'm not going for a laugh. There is nothing that grieves me more then human's hurting/neglecting animals.

Hateful slovenly lazy Meri and F U Cody. God if memory serves did she not say something about preserving her dog's dignity in old age? Maybe not, but I sure cannot go back to check. 

(name of my dog is Cody too so I don't like to write anything neg with my boopies name in it. this was worthwhile)

How is your Cody? My heart hurts to think of people losing pets. My husband and I have lost two dogs, and we now have a 4-5 year old dog, but I still miss the first two.

 

I haven’t watched this show consistently and I have a really bad memory, but I vaguely remember the hole digging. With having ADHD I can’t just sit and watch tv so I’m always doing a bunch of things at once, so clearly digging a grave for a mobile and happy dog didn’t register at the time. That is horrible considering the heart wrenching decisions I’ve had to make in kindness to my pups and not holding on out of selfishness. I agonized over my puppies and when they quit eating and drinking it was kinder to send them to puppy heaven. Damn it, I can’t believe these people. Grrrrrr. 

 

If if you can, please write an update on your sweet little guy.

This is odd, Meri's official ribbon cutting instagram was Dec. 13, 2017 and I could find only one review of the facility since she has taken ownership.

Very impressed with the Free Parking on the side of the road in front of house, that alone should be a huge draw, along with cinnamon buns for breakfast.

It actually looked like they were parking on the front lawn, or at least the parkway. I was wondering WTF is up with that? Who just drives onto someone’s lawn and parks there? It neither looked fully like a parking area nor fully like part of the front yard. Maybe it will take her a year to pave that over and make proper parking.

Finally bought and read their book.  Yeah, I know I may have supported them a teensy bit.  I was struck at some of the shade the wives slyly threw Meri's way and came away with no one really likes her and never has.   I discovered Christine is not quite as lacking in smarts as I previously thought.  She worked more in the past than I previously knew and was pretty out there as far as a mouthpiece for polygamy.  Sobbin seems to be the one that has helped in their conflicts but she may want to back off the negative talk about her kids birth father.  Janelle, I don't know.  Her part wasn't too interesting.  Meri has always been a problem.  For each wife.  She has always had a stank attitude and has been difficult.  I was quite surprised that she was such a wallflower in her youth (her words) that no one even recognized her in her church group until Kody came along.  She also rubbed it in a shit ton about how she and Kody were soulmates, totally in love, and just so groovy together.  She referred to Janelle's relationship to him as more business and platonic so she wasn't jealous of that one.  When Christine came along it was a different story and she and Kody seemed to be in love.  She also threw shade at J and C re food they feed their family.  That she and Mariah had cleaner eating habits and so she couldn't have J or C pick things up for her because she was so picky about what she put in her body.  Well, I think she has gotten over that aversion.  She gained at least 50-70 lbs since the 1st ep.

In a nutshell:

Meri stinks (not literally) and always has

Janelle has always been way too passive

Christine has always been bubbly and Kody says she saved their bacon as a family since she was a buffer between C and M (C and J actually would be ok living together)

Robyn still bugs me but she seems like of the 3, she has a better way of communicating and they all mentioned she has helped their disagreements

Kody didn't bug me in print like he does in live action

Easy book.  I read it in an afternoon

There were only 5 reviews of the Victoria's Inn from June 2014 to September 2017.  Assuming maybe 10% of guests submit a review of accommodations, that would probably put the guest registry at 50 over a 2.5 year period.  Maybe Victoria was ready to throw in the proverbial towel and much as it pains me to acknowledge, Kody may have been right when he said it wasn't a viable business.

I can't figure Meri out. She displays characteristics/behaviors that make her very unlikable, yet she whines and cries when people don't like her or want to include her--she's clearly not self-aware regarding the bad vibes she puts out. I used to think she was staying for the TLC $$, but they were together before Robyn came along, apparently with all the same problems. I have no idea why she's there..........they don't like her. Unless she's got a secretly laid out plan to actually go out on her own, I can't figure out her role in this thing besides shit-stirrer. 

And yeah, when they all moved to Vegas with the plethora of restaurants in every shopping complex, she seemed to stop caring about what she was eating (Vegas did a number on all of them). At least Mariah looks fit and healthy now.

I have wondered where Meri fell in birth order in her family and this may be a motivating factor in her attitude.  Maybe she was raised as the Little Princess and evolved into the Queen Bee or maybe she was lost in a swarm of siblings and saw marriage as her opportunity to have control.

Had she not met Kody, I don't see her marrying into a situation where she would have been 2nd or 3rd wifey.  It seems to me that Meri may have felt that Kody would have been so enraptured with her, that he would see no need for multiple wives, despite what may have been their prior to marriage agreement on polygamy.  She probably felt secure with Janelle as second wife as her ego would have told her she was superior and wasted no time in making sure Janelle knew just where her place was in the family structure.  Then along came Christine, all light and love and a polygamist pedigree.  Kody managed to give Meri security by expressing disgust for Christine's eating habits and we will never know what other private conversations occurred  between Kody and Meri to maintain her feeling of superiority. 

Then along came She-Ra Robyn, who cleverly manipulated her way into their life as Meri's trusted confidant, forming a bond with her while reveling in the fact that Kody was head over heels in love with her, giving her the power to become the HBIC that she is today.  

Meri got euchred, but I don't see any other outcome in polygamist life, to me it seems to breed Bitter Bettys and I really feel Meri would have been far happier in a monogamist life.

I think MUCH happier!  Those three seem into it and Meri might in theory but she doesn't seem to cope well in reality.  I picture her childhood report cards saying she doesn't play well with others.  She is a score keeper and doesn't seem to care about what she says or how she acts around them.  Robyn may not be as great of a mediator as they think but it sounds like they needed an outsider to tell them to quit the passive aggressive behavior, talk it out etc.  Seems like there was a lot of stewing and tiptoeing around feelings (until someone totally blew) before she came along.

Meri became legal owner of the Parowan property in Oct 2017 but didn't announce until early December.  

Not sure what the renovation announcement is. Neither Vickie nor Meri strike me as being internet/computer savvy.

Lizzie's website is accepting reservations so, seems open. As has been discussed, probably old news from then it was Victoria's.

The Lizzie's website is kinda low-end and poorly thought out IMO. In the policies and room descriptions, there's white text on a gray background. Difficult to read! Also, the "Destination Guide" doesn't guide you anywhere! It's a paragraph that says this:

"Located in the gateway to some of the state’s most scenic attractions, Lizzie’s Heritage Inn offers the perfect accommodation for those looking for an informal setting in southern Utah.  Being within an hour’s drive of Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon or two hours from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, guests may enjoy the colorful spring through fall scenery or the winter activities surrounding our ideally located Inn.  Lizzie’s Heritage Inn provides the optimal location for everything from soothing weekends to family occasions, or an invigorating vacation."

THAT'S a "guide"? No maps or mileages to these places? No photos of these places? No links to these places? In the words of Amy Farrah Fowler, LAME-O!

The way she's half-assing it tells me she just wanted the place for herself.

Oh and her mom of course. 

I dunno about the rest of you but if I'm planning on visiting a destination like the Grand Canyon, I would opt for lodgings nearby rather than the prospect of spending 4-plus hours round trip to and from.

I find it interesting that we never hear or see anything about Bonnie's sister wives, and that Janelle's mom has been living with Janelle for well over a year now.  Remember Kody stressing out about whether the wives would stay together after he died? Doesn't look like it's a common occurrence to me...

Aha! Kind of what I expected. 

There was a large wooden sign in the yard when it was Victoria's. Why wouldn't Meri re-use the big sign and repaint it?

If Parowan is that big a yawn I really feel for Meri's mom since she's apparently there by herself a good deal of the time.

If Parowan is that big a yawn I really feel for Meri's mom since she's apparently there by herself a good deal of the time. 

It is not the boring life that I would worry about. I'm sure Meri's mom isn't looking for the nightlife. It is medical care, St George is the closest city about 75 miles South with a decent hospital but it serves about 400k people from smaller areas like Parowan, and  it lacks what I call the senior citizen doctors, 1 neurologist, 1 endocrinologist , and no rhemotology.  The waiting lists are insane 6-8 months to see a doctor after a stroke! so forget about getting checked for dementia or diabetes quickly!

 

My take on the sign was it was there to consider it a business, but not big enough for advertising. Like maybe they want the tax write off? like those people that put a sticker on their car for a home business so they can write off the car usage. 

 

The back yard is narrow and odd shaped. The front lawn is nice, well nice for southern Utah since there is so many yards that are just rocks seeing nice green grass is rare. Meri should make the front yard more usable with like a white picket fence around it. Then again the view is of the hoarders. Meri also has very little recourse for the neighboring houses not being kept up. There have been so many battles in southern Utah over yard issues like this and home owners fight hard to keep their junk and win. There are million dollar neighborhoods overlooking junk. That is why HOAs are so popular. 

 

I wonder one of the reasons they got another season was so Meri could show off the grand opening of the B&B? I can't wait to see the creative editing of Parowan. TLC/A&E/Disney/ABC/CNN have all filmed where I live and the editing is so crazy. I am an overprotective mom and my kids walk home from school , it is about .4 of a mile and they pass 3 "dangerous" polygamist areas according to TLC/A&E editing.

Yikes! 

I was thinking more about leaving friends and being in a small town and not knowing anyone. Didn't even consider health care, you're absolutely right 😳

Also...I did a street view and it looks like the hoarder house is the residence of the Parowan Prophet. 

Nice...

Architecturally it looks like a nice house.  Lovely view for Mer's clients - not.  But perfect neighbor, another Prophet.  He and Kootie can duke it out for top honors.

I can't believe I was that close to the Parowan Prophet! That Prophet sign is over the old RV I saw. It is one of the Prophet's many billboards. The Prophet's house does have good bones, but it had several boarded up windows and siding hanging off the sides.  There was more "stuff "in front and on the sides of the Prophet's house when I was there. I didn't see the nice green grass that is in this picture.

I'm sure Parowan Prophet will LOVE if Meri turns this into a tourist destination. He is always trying to get people to listen to him. He is VERY anti gay. I wonder if Meri did her research but I can't imagine Mariah wanting to be anywhere near this man. He was very mad about Utah electing gay politicians and thinks gay people getting rights is a sign that the end of the world is near. I would post some of his quotes but they are very offense and severe not just about gay people but about many other subjects(like I don;t think Mykelti's husband Tony would want to go near the Prophet). It is easy to google Paowan Prophet, but basically if you don't follow him you are going to burn and die. The website if you can stomach it, it is VERY offensive , has pictures of his basement and his house and explains the reasons behind his collecting tons of extra items that will save him.

Okay, so of course having been warned to avoid it, I just had to go look up the Parowan Prophet's website.  Ten minutes of my life I will never get back. Literally EVERY WORD of his rants is an underlined hyperlink to a previous looney ass rant. Just an endless series of links and exclamations and more links and rants. It's like stepping inside the mind of a schizophrenic. A bigoted, homophobic, xenophobic, schizophrenic. My eyeballs actually hurt a little. 

But I do feel compelled to mention, just so everyone knows ... the world is apparently ending tomorrow, the 25th. Some kind of "real" Passover shit will be going down according to The Prophet.  I'm not sure if everyone here was aware of this, so I just thought i would mention it. You have less than 24 hours to live 😕

Good to know. I guess I had better take a shower tonight instead of tomorrow morning.  Don't want greasy hair for the Rapture!

Yeah, I'm glad I just had a pedicure! I wouldn't want to face judgment day with chipped toenail polish. I just wish I'd chosen a more godly shade of purple.  I have whore feet. And you know the first thing god does is make you take off your shoes. There will be no hiding it. Damn.
