Plyg Talk - My Thoughts on TLC's 'Sister Wives'

When I get hooked on a show I am hooked. I also like to talk about it and since I don't work in a big office with a water cooler, this blog and you, my faithful readers, will have to hear about it.

I did this via email with my college friends when American Idol first came out. We called it, "Idol Chatter" and we mostly analyzed how Katherine McPhee looked because my friend's husband had McPheever and she looked A LOT like my friend, his wife! But I digress...

This week on 'Sister Wives'

It boils down to this:

Christine (wife #3)... 

had her baby which made it #13 for Kody AND they decided to induce to have it on the 13th day of whatever month it was (plyg luck?). Also - it was the FIRST time Christine delivered in a hospital AND she accepted the drugs AND said it was easy.  PLYG MOMENT: Kody asking the doctor about doing IVF (referring to Meri) while his other wife is in labor right in front of him!

Meri (wife #1)...

celebrated 20 years with Kody with a nice dinner out that ended in an argument and tears as all good anniversary dinners do. The issue is that Meri wanted this plyg lifestyle and knows and accepts it. BUT she's human and still (even after 20 years and 2 other wives) prone to jealousy. Kody was stuck between a rock and a hard place, which brings us to the next PLYG MOMENT: She wanted him to just acknowlege it, and not, in plyg terms, tell her to 'suck it up' as she felt he had in the past. He is like, "You're asking me to admit that everything I'm doing is wrong." YEP. See, those plygs are not so different from us. He Can't. Win.

Janelle...

she's the one wife who was NOT raised in the plyg lifestyle and yet she, so far, seems the most easy going with it, and with the new almost-wife Robyn. Although Janelle did encourage the other wives to skimp on the ring they are givng to Robyn (sister-wife thing), and get the cheapest. But you know what? I agree with her. Robyn's bringing 4 more mouths to feed to this family and they really have no business spending money on bling.  Thus this week's PLYG QUESTION: When will Kody give up that Lexus???

Robyn...

has moved into her own house just 1 block away from the family. She takes Christine's kids for the day while Christine and Kody are at the hospital for the appointment which later turns into the delivery. Robyn has the dollhouse and there are 4 mommy dolls and 1 daddy doll and all the little girls are fighting over who gets to sit next to the daddy doll. I guess, if that's all you know, it's normal! Robyn tears up during one of the interview segments and recalls loving the fact that she has this family since she came from a broken home. Her step-dad accepted her as his own, and she knows her kids will come to really love Kody. It's a touching moment in an otherwise difficult time. Robyn is still an outsider but wants so much to be IN.  PLYG MOMENT: Kody stops in before heading back to the hospital and kisses Robyn and admits to feeling strange. "I don't want to be kissing my girlfriend while my wife is in labor!" he says.

Kody...

finally admits to going bald. We knew already from an episode with wind blowing, and also because he keeps his hair unreasonably long and wild - always a sign that a guy is trying to hide some thinning. But at least he came clean. An honorable move and one I know is not that easy to do. So, just when I think Kody somewhat has it together he does this...

Kody and Meri are in Mexico to celebrate their 20 years, and get some much needed together-time. At one point, during a quite moment, he actually brings up giving Meri IVF as a 20th anniversary present...!?!?!

Kody, Kody, Kody. {smacks head} Have you not learned anything in these 20 years? Meri's response, "I don't see the point." How pissed off is she after watching last night's episode and seeing him discuss HER IVF in front of the doctor and Christine during a delivery?? Let's hope he learns something from this.

Until next week,

Janine

I cannot stop watching this show. And did you hear they are being criminally investigated?

I have now seen you and Amy Tweet about this show. I must program my DVR to remember to catch it. I just finished reading The 19th Wife and am SO intrigued by this thanks to Big Love and other shows/books.

I think we need to fly out to Utah and tell the police to lay off them so we can get more episodes out of them!
