  • 'Sister Wives' Shocker: Second wife Janelle was married to first wife Meri's brother, report says

    'Sister Wives' stars Christine, Meri, Kody and Janelle

    If you weren’t confused enough as it is already, keeping track of who’s who in the TLC show “Sister Wives” just got a little harder. According to a report from Star magazine, Kody Brown’s first two wives met when second wife Janelle was married to first wife Meri’s brother.

    Ok, let’s slow down and try to make sense of that sentence.

    Janelle, who is Kody’s second wife, was married to his first wife’s Meri’s brother for three years in the 1980s before the two became “sister wives” in 1993.

    Still confused? So are we.

    According to Star, Janelle legally wed Adam Barber in Salt Lake City back in 1988. They divorced in 1990, just three years before Janelle married Kody in a nontraditional commitment ceremony.

    And according to the report, while the sister wives seem to be friendly now, there was tension after the split.

    “I know she was originally very upset over Janelle dumping her brother,” a family insider says of Meri. “I think there has been a lot of unspoken tension between her, Janelle and Kody all these years.”
