Season 5 of Sister Wives has shown Kody Brown and his four wives dealing with a host of issues. Meri Brown is suffering the backlash from her catfishing scandal. Janelle and Meri can’t seem to get along. The family is unbalanced. Despite the family drama, rumors are flying that Brown is on the hunt for his fifth wife.
According to an insider who spoke to Hollywood Life, Brown has been looking for “more than a year” for a “really young [wife,] like 19 or 20. And she has to be attractive and thin.” His current wives are all over 35.
The source explains that Brown’s decision to marry again isn’t just for the love of an attractive, young woman — although I’m guessing that’s part of it. It’s also for, you guessed it, the ratings.
“He knows that teasing the intro of a hot new wife at the end of this season would give people a reason to tune in,” says the insider. “And for the network to renew the series.” With the show in its fifth season and Meri’s catfishing scandal unfortunately giving the series new life, the Browns probably don’t have to do anything as drastic as introduce a whole new wife just to keep Sister Wives afloat. Is it possible that Brown is just getting a little bored with what he has?
