TLC's Sister Wives' Janelle Brown has a new book out called Becoming Sister Wives, and even we couldn't guess how juicy it actually is!
The just anointed author reveals how she TEMPORARILY moved away from her seriously expanded family following the year she had a baby.
Here's what she said:
"During the eighth year of our marriage, I gave birth to my fifth child, Gabriel,I sank into a horrible postpartum depression. I felt overwhelmed by having had so many children in quick succession, and felt seriously depressed at our lack of financial means."
She also apparently was having a lot of trouble with the other wives, who are all married to Kody Brown, and had a terrible fight with Meri which prompted her to finally leave.
"I also had a particularly nasty fight with Meri — one of the worst we'd ever had. I was at my breaking point. I couldn't see my way out of my depression. I told Kody I was leaving. That night, I got into the car and drove to my mother's house. My kids and I stayed with my mother for several months until I found my own place. My job paid a decent salary, which allowed me to buy a better car in addition to my own home. I started to build a life for myself outside the sisterhood."
So what finally led her to reunite with her huuuge family?
An enormous house, obviously!
"The big house changed everything. We were able to be together as a family in a normal and relaxed way. I had my own space, but my kids had their siblings and the other mothers in the same building."
We're glad everything worked out especially since the show wouldn't be the same without her!
Speaking of the show, Sister Wives attacks the block this Sunday at 9 pm.
