here's my take: Meri doesn't mind Robin so much as she feels that she helped choose her for Kody and that she's wife # 1, and that gives her more status. The two blond wives, will never really accept Robin, there's way to much jealousy. Christine thought that she was last hot wife for Kody, thinks she the fun young one for Kody. Janelle was the working one, and I bet handled the finances of the family, and just sees Robin and the new kids as added burden on the family. I don't think the Brown family will stay together. And I agree, the ladies don't look happy when filmed on the couch. I wonder what kind of discussion goes on as to who gets to sit next to Kody.
