She said that in that particular conversation, she felt like she was taken off guard. She says, “I felt like I was kind of being put on the spot. And I’m like, ‘I don’t know. I don’t know.'”

The host asked Janelle if she wants a relationship with Robyn. She replies, “Yes. I think so, but I don’t know.”

She explains that her relationship with Christine is so close because they raised children together. She said, “Christine and I, we’re like, it was just one of those things that happened cause we were raising kids together.”

In part 2 of the reunion, Kody thinks that Janelle and Christine have become a “clique” that isn’t welcoming to the other wives. When asked by the host if she and Janelle are in a clique, Christine answers. “I’m not trying to be. Janelle’s super easy. Janelle’s really easy. She’s lovely to get along with. We kind of just get each other after all of these years.”

Janelle said that she and Christine aren’t in a clique and that she’s by no means “excluding” anyone. And that throughout the pandemic, she was only going where she felt more “welcome,” which just happened to be with Christine.

Now that Christine has divorced Kody, she lives in Utah with her older children. Since their split, Janelle and Christine have remained close, even to the point of going on vacation together.

It will be interesting to see how the dynamic will change between Robyn and Janelle now that Christines is no longer part of the “larger family.” Part three of the Sister Wives Season 16 tell-all airs Sunday, Feb. 13 on TLC and discovery+.
