Even though Robyn Brown, the latest of the Sister Wives, claimed that her polygamist lifestyle works because it gives "choices not take them away," it seems that husband Kody Brown has an ENTIRELY different take on what is expected in plural marriage!
In fact, on last night's episode of the TLC reality series, the reality star essentially demanded that Robyn, Meri, Christine, and Janelle OBEY all of his orders!
Thankfully, however, his multiple lady-loves did NOT approve of that his ridiculous attempt at power assertion, and called him right out on that kind of despicable behavior!
Check out the clip (above) which depicts the family patriarch exhausted during a RV trip to Illinois and pulling a temper tantrum because his wives dare question his judgment regarding who should be handling the crux of driving responsibilities!
As he explains:
"You know, I've had two nights in a row where I've been driving all day. Today, we've been fighting the wind all day, and I've had four hours of sleep … and I was just done. I was just ready to melt down because I was too exhausted to sit there and try to delegate — I wanted to bark orders and have them obeyed."
But KUDOS are certainly in order for Christine, who immediately countered:
"I think that word, ‘Obey,’ is in fact a four-letter word. Kody, I think that we do our best. We understand that you get tired. We understand that you get stressed out. You can't just throw out, 'I think you should obey me!' It's kind of like … well, that's offensive."
In fact, we're a little bewildered as to why Kody would choose to engage in a lifestyle that basically put him at odds with multiple women, all of whom capable of teaming up on and contesting his demands, if all he wants is to be in control!
As you know, Patton's Oswalt's wife Michelle McNamarapassed away suddenly in April, and he still struggles to cope with the devastating loss.
Speaking with The Times, the stand-up comedian recounted the heartbreaking morning he found the true crime author had died in her sleep -- a day he says was the "the second worst day of his life," the first being when he had to tell the couple's seven-year-old daughter, Alice, that her mother had passed.
Oswalt recalled telling his wife -- who had been working long hours investigating "The Golden State Killer" -- to "sleep until you wake up." So, McNamara took some Xanax and went to bed.
