Kody Brown said on “Sister Wives” that he didn’t want to help his wife Janelle build a house.
“If you don’t respect me, don’t bother with love,” Kody said.
Janelle said that Kody was taking his relationship issues out on her, which she called “amazing”.
Tensions ran high between Kody Brown and his second wife Janelle Brown in Sunday episode of “Sister Wives” because Kody refused to “break my back” for a wife he felt didn’t “respect” him.
As documented in season 17, Janelle moved from her home in Flagstaff, Arizona, to a trailer home in the Coyote Pass property of the Brown family with her daughter Savanah Brown, 17. She hoped that the rest of the family would start building houses there as they had originally planned.
But living in the trailer was more difficult than she expected, so Janelle changed her plans and told Kody that she now wanted to rent a house to live in until her house was built.
The couple argued several times throughout the episode because Kody wanted Janelle to buy his ex Christine’s house (which was on the market at the time) so that I could rent it out in the future. Janelle resisted because she said she couldn’t pay the mortgage on both houses. She believed that she could build her house in Coyote Pass in a year.
In a solo interview, Janelle said that the only reason Kody wanted to buy Christine’s house was because she wanted to keep her in the family, rather than really thinking about her needs. She said that she would feel “trapped” there and that she was not going to let Kody “push” her into doing what he wanted to do.
In a scene at the end of Sunday’s episode, Kody visited Janelle’s trailer home to tell her that her plans to build the house had to be delayed while they built a subdivision on the property.
Janelle told the cameras that Kody had a “rough summer” (presumably because Christine moved away) and was now making the construction problems at Coyote Pass “all my problem” and blaming her for “bothering him.” She called Kody’s behavior “amazing”.
Kody told the cameras in an interview that he was resistant to the idea of Janelle because he felt “disrespected” by her during the COVID-19 pandemic. As viewers saw in season 16, Janelle traveled during the pandemic and he even told Kody to go away for trying to make her feel bad about visiting her children.
“I’m not going to break my back to work for you when you don’t respect me, I just don’t. And Janelle needs someone to break their back to do this project and that’s not me right now,” Kody said in her interview.
“Men don’t feel love from women who don’t respect them. I feel like Janelle has a hard time respecting me or showing me respect,” she added. “If you don’t respect me, don’t bother with love.”
New episodes of “Sister Wives” air every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
