Sister Wives stars Maddie Brush and Janelle Brown are not listening to Kody Brown anymore. He thinks the family should continue to socially distance themselves for the holiday season. The Brown family is struggling with their dynamic even more amid the COVID-19 pandemic. A preview for the next episode of Sister Wives shows the family at odds with the patriarch. This was all filmed last year before the holidays.
Kody is dead set on keeping the family apart during this time. He feels that it’s too risky to spread the virus. Yet, his wives and kids want to celebrate the holidays together. They have been staying safe up to this point and feel that it’s time to celebrate Thanksgiving together.
Kody Brown is ruining the Brown family’s holiday traditions
The Sister Wives star is acting like Scrooge. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Kody Brown even threatened to ruin Christmas. The Sister Wives Season 16 premiere shows tensions are higher amid the coronavirus pandemic. Kody’s wives already argued with him about the plans for Coyote Pass.
The family is still practicing social distancing. At least, for the most part. Janelle Brown may be one of the wives who’s set to defy Kody this year. On the show, Kody is trying to find a way to navigate the pandemic with his plural family. He argued that he’s the only one who’s visiting his families during this time.
Not everyone wants to abide by the rules though. Kody told his wives that some of them have to make more sacrifices than ever. He even threatened to cancel Christmas if they don’t follow suit. Janelle Brown confessed that she doesn’t want to follow his “uber, uber, uber careful stance.”
Kody suggested that they should skip their traditional large gathering. Janelle only said: “Wow.” However, she has more to say behind the scenes. She feels that he’s taken a “doomsday” approach to the pandemic. Since Kody tested positive for the virus, he may just want to play it safe.
Maddie Brush and Janelle Brown make Thanksgiving plans without him
It looks like in 2021, they are seeing each other again. It is really unknown what Kody Brown’s rules are for this year, but last year he didn’t want them all together or traveling really.
Janelle Brown is going to have her Thanksgiving dinner, with or without Kody Brown. Maddie Brush shared her plans with her mom via her Instagram Story. She held a Q&A with her fans, in which she answered their burning questions.
“Are you cooking for Thanksgiving?” the Sister Wives fan asked. “Yes! My mom is coming into town and we are cooking our meal together with some friends!” Maddie responded. She sounded excited about her plans. As SW fans know, Maddie Brush moved to North Carolina.
What do you think Kody is allowing this year? Sound off below in the comments.
