Seeking Sister Wife, Brandy reveals thoughts on doing another show and plural relationships
While it never worked out for Brandy, she says that she really joined the show as she felt it was her “chance at love.” Speaking of the McGees, she believed that they also “wanted the same thing.” However, she definitely rules out doing another show like Seeking Sister Wife, saying that she’s done with that: “Live and learn!” However, that doesn’t mean Brandy’s throwing away the concept of a sister wife relationship.
Brandy says about plural relationships, that she’s good for it if it happens and she’s “leaving it in God’s hands.” Notably, though, she won’t turn away a “wonderful single guy either,” as she’s “good there too.” Referring to the TLC show again, she says that on the whole, she felt the show “was shown as accurate as possible.” Okay, there were some bits she felt she “didn’t agree with,” but unable to change things, she just rolled with it.
Good memories of the TLC show and good advice from Brandy
Fans of Seeking Sister Wife never saw all the scenes filmed for the show. But, Brandy says one of those gives her good memories, and it involved the kids. Brandy came over as particularly good with kids on the show, so that’s no big surprise. Brandy explains it came during her “second trip” to the McGees and “[she] sat down to help the boys with their school work. “The laughing and joking were awesome,” Brandy says.
Meanwhile, after doing the show, Brandy says, “I keep in touch with a few of the women.” That’s an important aspect of being a sister wife, being able to make friends with the women in a future relationship. For anyone else looking for a sister wife relationship, Brandy gives some advice, saying, “Take your time. There’s no rush. Make sure you ask those difficult questions. Listen to your gut. Make sure what’s important to you is also important to them.”
Dealing with social media and becoming a Seeking Sister Wife celebrity
Fans of reality TV shows often see cast members as celebrities. Just the other day, a fan on a Facebook group wrote about how excited they were to see Brandy, a celebrity, out and about. But, for Brandy, being a celebrity on Seeking Sister Wife is the last thing on her mind. She said, “I don’t feel I am a celebrity and I went on a show to find love. I learned that I’m much stronger than I thought. I learned that I don’t have to react to every situation and I’m proud of myself for not reacting.”
Dealing with social media, and in particular, with haters presented a bit of a shock to Brandy. She says nobody prepared her for any of that, adding, “I’ve watched reality TV for years but I’ve never joined a group to talk cr*p on them. I didn’t know those groups existed. I just never took it that seriously. So to know there are people out there with some serious hate in their heart for people they don’t know is bothersome. ”
Brandy admits that initially, trolling “really bothered” her. However, a silver lining involved meeting “wonderful women who helped me through this process…from showing me how to lock down my Facebook completely to just listening to me when I was upset. I am eternally grateful for the friendships that happened because of this show.”
