Kody Brown stood his ground when it came to a particularly heated moment with one wife

In a Facebook clip from episode 2 of the tell-all, Krishnan asks Kody why he allowed Janelle to walk away from him after she decided to choose time with her adult children out of town over spending Thanksgiving with Kody, Robyn, their kids, and Meri in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Krishnan questions Kody’s behavior.

“You let her walk away,” the newswoman stated.

“What was I supposed to do?” responded Kody.

“As a husband, run after her?” Krishnan remarked.

Kody’s emphatic response, “No.”

In the post’s comments section, some fans agreed that Kody’s remarks appeared “selfish.”.

“Is anyone shocked by his response? We have been watching this train wreck from the beginning, and they’re just confirming what we already knew. He’s in love with Robyn,” summarized one viewer.

“It’s OK for the ladies to walk away because then he’s not responsible. Janelle sees this, but she’s staying just like Meri. I don’t feel bad for someone who knows the truth but would rather subject themselves to horrible treatment. Christine was a smart woman,” they concluded.

“Kody is so selfish. First off, Kody withholds his love from those who don’t give him his way, whether it’s a wife or one of his children. The kids have his number and see him for who he is. Anyone who doesn’t do things his way comes in for terrible treatment from him. Imagine living with that. It’s not love or even “friendship.” It’s selfishness,” reacted a second fan, whose comment received hundreds of likes on the social media site.

“The way he said “no!” about running after Janelle. When you love someone, you run after them. Not away from them. These women deserve more,” claimed a third viewer.

The second part of the Sister Wives tell-all will air on Feb. 6.

Sister Wives airs Sundays at 10 p.m. EST on TLC.
