Are Meri and Christine from ‘Sister Wives’ Fighting? They’re on the Same Cruise But Aren’t Hanging Out Together
Meri and Christine Brown from Sister Wives are both on the same cruise in the Caribbean. But the pair don’t seem to be spending any time together on vacation, at least based on their social media posts. Fans are taking it as another sign that the pair — who both have a spiritual marriage to Kody Brown — are on the outs.
Meri and Christine admit they “don’t talk”
In a Sister Wives episode that aired in February, the two acknowledged that they “don’t talk” anymore.
“We used to hang out and have fun and laugh and be crazy,” Meri said to Christine in the episode. “We were friends for a long time.”
“You’re not comfortable with me,” Christine added.
Many fans have noticed that Meri seems to be growing apart from the family since divorcing Kody so that he could legally marry fourth wife Robyn and starting her own B&B in Utah.
They’re both on the same cruise
Right now, Meri and Christine are both on the same Caribbean cruise. The trip is an incentive for LuLaRoe retailers who sell a certain amount merchandise in a year. Both women sell the company’s brightly patterned leggings and dresses, and apparently, they’re pretty successful at it. Christine’s Facebook group, Rose Colored LuLaRoe, has more than 11,000 members, while more than 44,000 people have liked Meri’s Facebook shop. While it’s not clear how much a consultant needed to sell to get an invite to this year’s complimentary cruise, in 2017, the requirement was a minimum of $12,000 in sales in at least four consecutive months, according to one LuLaRoe retailer.
The free trip is a pretty sweet deal. Meri and Christine are sailing on the Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas. The cruise departed from San Juan, Puerto Rico, and has included stops in Bonaire, Curaçao, and Aruba. And Meri seems to be having the time of her life on her vacation. On Instagram, she said the trip so far has involved “meeting new people, having fun with old friends, lots of hanging out and laughing.”
None of Meri’s photos include Christine
Meri has been sharing photos from her trip on Instagram, some of which include Janelle’s daughter Maddie, who also sells LuLaRoe. Audrey, her daughter Mariah’s fiancée, is also in the photos. But her fellow sister wife Christine is conspicuously absent from them. And fans noticed, asking in the comments where Christine was.
We do know that Christine is on the trip too, since she also shared a photo on Instagram of her daughters dropping her off for the cruise. Since then, she hasn’t posted any cruise updates. While it’s possible she and Meri are spending time together and just aren’t documenting it on social media, based on their earlier admission that they hardly ever speak, there’s a good chance they’re steering clear of each together.
Kody feels left out
While his two wives don’t seem to be spending much, if any, time together on their cruise, their husband Kody seems to wish they were spending more time with him. On March 24, he tweeted about how both Meri and Christine were on a cruise. “Fun for them, lonely for me,” he wrote. Good thing he has two other wives to keep him company.
