Sister Wives Season 3 - Episode 1
The show follows the lives of Kody Brown, wife Robyn, ex-wives (Meri, Janelle, Christine), and their 18 children. In the first season, the show televised Kody's courting of and marriage to his fourth wife, Robyn, in 2010. Robyn was the first new wife to enter the family in 16 years.
The crews continued to film them after the marriage in case the series was picked up for a second season. Sister Wives was publicly introduced on August 6, 2010, at the Television Critics Association summer media tour in Beverly Hills. The series' first episode, an hour-long, was broadcast on TLC on September 26, 2010, and the first season continued with six half-hour episodes until October 17, 2010.
The broadcast of Sister Wives came at a time when polygamy and multiple marriages were prevalent topics in American pop culture. Big Love, the hit HBO series about fictional Utah polygamist Bill Henrickson, his three sister wives, and their struggle to gain acceptance in society, had already been on the air for several years. In early September 2010, the drama series Lone Star, about a con man on the verge of entering into multiple marriages, premiered on Fox but was quickly canceled after two episodes. When Sister Wives debuted, actress Katherine Heigl was in the process of developing a film about Carolyn Jessop, a woman who fled from a polygamist sect.
Sister Wives drew national media attention after its first season and garnered generally mixed reviews from critics. Washington Post staff writer Hank Stuever called it "refreshingly frank" and found most interesting the small details of the family's everyday life, such as the food supply, division of labor, and minor arguments. Los Angeles Times television critic Mary McNamara said she was intrigued by the matriarchal nature of the polygamist family, a unit that is traditionally considered patriarchal. McNamara said the wives form the center of the family and that "their bonds appear far stronger and more vital than the casual fondness with which they all treat Kody". Salon writer Schuyler Velasco praised Sister Wives for introducing viewers to the unfamiliar subject matter and called it "refreshingly modest" considering its controversial topic. Velasco said it has "a natural, honest presence in a genre fabled for the camera-hogging antics of Jersey Shore". Shelley Fralic of The Vancouver Sun called it fascinating and surprising and was impressed with the sensible and articulate way in which the family defended their lifestyle. When the Brown family made an October 2010 appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show, talk show host Oprah Winfrey said she found particularly fascinating the relationship between the sister wives.
Mark A. Perigard of the Boston Herald criticized Kody Brown for opening himself and his family up to potential criminal prosecution by appearing in the series, describing him as "a lawbreaker who is risking himself and the family he claims is so precious just to star in his own TV show". Elizabeth Tenety of The Washington Post called the series "one part domestic drudgery, another part sensationalism" and claimed it relied on a "familiar reality TV recipe" shared by other TLC series such as 19 Kids and Counting and Kate Plus 8. Religion Dispatches writer Joanna Brooks shared Tenety's perspective, criticizing the show for presenting polygamy in a manner that "is about as interesting to me as Kate Gosselin's latest makeover." In this vein Brooks criticized the show for not engaging the theology of plural marriage and for letting Kody Brown's superficial comments about the dissimilarity of Fundamentalist and mainstream Mormonism pass onto the viewers without any critical scrutiny or added nuance. Shari Puterman, television columnist with the Asbury Park Press, felt the sister wives had issues with jealousy and self-worth, and she compared Kody to a cult leader. Puterman added, "I can't speak for everyone, but I believe in the sanctity of marriage. It's sad to see that TLC's capitalizing on people who don't." Former prosecutor and television personality Nancy Grace criticized the show and said she believed Kody Brown should go to jail, but she expressed doubt he would, based on Utah's history of overlooking polygamy. Christine Seifert, an associate professor of communications at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, said the show could give viewers who are unfamiliar with the LDS church the incorrect assumption that polygamy is accepted by the mainstream church. Several commentators have taken notice of the fact that the family's religious convictions are downplayed in Sister Wives.
Ashley and her ex-husband were two of Seeking Sister Wife's original cast members, and throughout the couple's three years as reality TV stars, Ashley and Dimitri struggled to find a sister wife. After an underwhelming pool of candidates in season 1, Ashley finally welcomed Vanessa Cobbs to her marriage in season 2. By Seeking Sister Wife season 3, however, Ashley and Dimitri were back at square one as Vanessa had left them. Eventually, Ashley and Dimitri courted and married Christeline Petersen. After filming season 3, Christeline dropped a bombshell when she accused Ashley and Dimitri of domestic abuse. Ever since Christeline's allegations, Dimitri has kept his life private, but fans haven't had to wonder what happened to Ashley Snowden after season 3.
After establishing that she's single and moving on from her controversial Seeking Sister Wife season 3 experience, Ashley has lived a drama-free life. Instead of addressing devastating abuse accusations, Ashley's Instagram aesthetic has been centered around her current career as a wellness coach. Ashley's followers can sign up for one-on-one coaching sessions with the former Seeking Sister Wife star to absorb her wisdom. Ashley has also pursued a new venture as a podcaster. In December, Ashley discussed people-pleasing on an episode of the podcast, Deep Soul. Lastly, Ashley shared that she's managed to spend the holidays with her three kids, including her four-year-old Nari, despite Dimitri's absence. Ashley might not have as many spouses as she expected she would after Seeking Sister Wife, but she has salvaged her career since everything that happened to her after season 3.
Longtime franchise stars Ashley Snowden and Dimitri Snowden shared their journey to adding a sister wife to their family on three seasons of the show. While season 1 followed their courtship with a woman named Joselyn, the relationship between Joselyn, Dimitri and Ashley did not work out. They seemingly had better luck during season 2 when they courted Vanessa Cobbs. Their beautiful spiritual wedding ceremony aired on the show, but things quickly went south after the cameras stopped rolling. Vanessa left the Snowdens after only one year together and shortly after the season 2 tell-all was filmed.
Despite the ups and downs of the polygamous dating scene, Tosha and Sidian are still going strong, according to their Instagram pages. When they returned for season 4 in June 2022, they shared their journey with international and long-distance dating as they courted their next potential sister wife, a woman named Arielle from the Philippines.
During the season 4 finale, an update was shared in an onscreen message. Jennifer gave birth to a baby girl on June 29, 2022 and they moved into a larger home to accommodate their new baby and Danielle. The Davises also ordered a custom 12-foot bed for sleeping arrangements for Nick and all three of his wives.
When they joined the show, they were courting a woman named April. Unfortunately, April and Brenda hit a rough patch in their relationship and friendship as sister wives which made Brenda and Steve second-guess whether she was the right person to bring into their family as a second wife. However, they seemed to be able to work through their issues toward the end of the season.
Aegon I Targaryen was the first king of the Targaryen dynasty. He was a warlord and Lord of Dragonstone who, with his two sister-wives Visenya and Rhaenys, three great dragons and a small army, invaded and unified six of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros in the War of Conquest. Only Dorne managed to successfully resist the Targaryens, using guerrilla tactics started under the command of Meria Martell (commonly known as "The Yellow Toad") that continued for a couple of centuries until Dorne voluntarily joined the Seven Kingdoms when Maron Martell agreed to marry a Targaryen princess, Daenerys Targaryen and Maron's sister, Myriah Martell, married King Daeron II Targaryen.
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Aegon was a child of House Targaryen, dwelling on the island of Dragonstone in the Narrow Sea. The Targaryens, a family of Valyrian origin, had been in control of Dragonstone for a century before the Doom of Valyria destroyed their homeland in a volcanic cataclysm. For another hundred years on Dragonstone, the Targaryens slowly built up their strength and raised their dragons, the last in the world. When he was of age, Aegon, his two sister-wives and his three dragons led a scant few thousand troops in invading the entire continent of Westeros. Despite being vastly outnumbered, Aegon was able to secure victory after victory using his dragons. He smashed the Gardener and Lannister armies on the Field of Fire, securing their capitulation, and convinced the Arryns and Starks to join him peacefully through negotiation. Eventually, all of Westeros acknowledged him as king, save only Dorne, which he decided not to conquer after encountering fierce guerrilla resistance that ultimately claimed the lives of his younger sister-wife Rhaenys and her dragon Meraxes. 041b061a72
