SISTER Wives husband Kody Brown has been slammed for insisting he build his own mansion away from his wives on the Arizona property.
Kody, 52, explained on the season premiere how he split their $820,000 Arizona land purchased in 2018 into five parcels.
While wives Janelle, 52, and Robyn, 43, are getting four-acre lots, Meri, 50, and Christine, 49, will be building homes on two-acres of land.
That leaves another two-acre lot up for grabs that features a pond.
Kody shocked his wives when he revealed he would be building on the property.
He said on the season premiere: “I want to make five lots and I’m keeping one for me. I’m not going to have four wives owning that fifth lot when I don’t own one so I am going to keep the fifth lot, it’s that simple.
“The lot that will have the pond will most likely be mine for full access to family. You are all going to own your own house, why shouldn’t I own my own house?”
Fourth wife Robyn said in her confessional: “This whole thing Kody is talking about is a surprise to me. I think Kody having his own house is silly, but I do think having a fifth home having all of us to gather at is amazing.”
Christine, who announced her split from Kody in November, added: “I think it’s stupid Kody talking about having his own house. I guess he’s going to use it for family gatherings. I’m like what a waste of money.”
Christine then complained because her promised lot was given to second wife Janelle so she could have easier access to the pond for her green house.
She fired in her confessional: “Apparently there is no me and polygamy. We really all have to work together and I have to work myself.
“Kody wants a dog house. I mean house, Freudian slip. Kody wants a house. His own house.
“Everything he says right now I’m frankly not going to listen to. I don’t care. I’m not excited to move onto this property, but we are so I would like to be excited to move onto this property. I just have to talk myself into staying constantly now instead of just walking away.
“I thought we were going to build the cul-de-sac again like we had in Vegas and have the four houses close to each other. It sounds really separate. I think it’s sad to be honest.”
Fans agreed with the wives, as they slammed Kody for building his own home.
One said on Reddit: “What kind of house is Kody wanting? I can see a large gathering place like an event hall but to build a home for no one to live in full time or expect the wives to travel to him… The lots are laughable at best.”
A second said: “Why does Kody want his own damn house? All his wives kids are grown. If he doesn’t want to live with anyone why marry four women?”
A third mocked: “Why hasn't Kody designed this site so he's in the center, and the wives all extend outward from him. He's the sun king!”
ON ROBYN'S SIDE
Also on the episode, Kody received backlash for siding with Robyn over the family’s potential move back to Utah.
In Christine’s confessional, she revealed how “hard” the family’s denial was and how rocky her marriage to Kody has been.
She said: “It’s not just about moving back to Utah. It’s just not. I’m not going to make any drastic decisions on what I am going to do next today. I am hurt today.
“I really needed his support. I really did. Marriage is hard, but I never wanted the kind of marriage I have now. I never wanted to be so estranged and have extremely limited physical contact. Not even hand holding. It’s sad. My marriage to Kody is sad.”
After Christine’s breakdown, Kody decided to speak to each of his wives about the possibility of moving to Utah.
Second wife Janelle said: “I would just be like, 'Give me the property and you can move. You can go. Be in Utah and do your thing.' I don’t care. I would stay. You would leave this?”
Kody said in his confessional: “I want to move there. I never lost that desire. But I am not moving the family because of where I want to live.”
But when Kody talked to Robyn, who fans have dubbed his “favorite” wife, the idea seemed to be more off the table.
Robyn said while crying: “This is so frustrating that this is a question. We just got here to Flagstaff. I’ve invested myself here. I made it really clear once we moved here, I’m not interested in being a transient family. My kids are very happy here in Flagstaff. I wish we could just settle down. We’re in Flagstaff. It’s beautiful.
“I am so frustrated that we are constantly bringing up where should we go. We could find a place and make it home."
She then expressed her fear of the family being outcasted in Utah.
Kody was quick to calm Robyn down, as he explained to her he was touching base over the idea and the family is not moving to Utah.
'ROBYN ALWAYS WINS!'
Fans then slammed Kody for shutting down the idea to move after Robyn broke down.
One fan commented on Twitter: “Robyn doesn’t want to move. Case closed. You lose Christine. Robyn always wins.”
Another wrote: “The way that Kody talks to Robyn makes it so clear she’s the one that’s most important to him.”
A third said: "So basically, everything Kody and Robyn decide goes? They have the closest relationship?”
A fourth wrote: “So we all agree. That Kody only cares about what Robyn wants.”
A fifth said: “All the signs are still there that Robyn is Kody’s favorite wife!”
As The Sun reported, Christine and Kody announced their split over social media earlier this month after the former third wife sold her Arizona home and moved to Utah.
She wrote on Instagram: “After more than 25 years together, Kody and I have grown apart and I have made the difficult decision to leave.
”We will continue to be a strong presence in each other’s lives as we parent our beautiful children and support our wonderful family.
"At this time, we ask for your grace and kindness as we navigate through this stage within our family. With love, Christine Brown.”
Shortly after, Kody released a statement of his own that read: "Christine's decision to leave comes with a great deal of sadness.
"We enjoyed many years together and I have a large amount of respect and admiration for her.
"Although we are moving forward on different paths, we will always remain committed parents.”
Kody and Christine spiritually married in 1994.
She joined his first wife Meri and second wife Janelle, as fourth spouse Robyn entered the family in 2010.
They share children Mykelti, Aspyn, Ysabel, Paedon, Gwendlyn and Truley.
NEW LIFE IN UTAH
Christine moved to Utah with her youngest daughter Truley, 11.
Christine sold the Arizona home she once shared with Kody for $700,000 in October after threatening to move to Utah amid their martial troubles.
She is now living in a two-story duplex built in 2019 that has two living units attached next to each other as townhouses.
