Cody Brown and Christine Brown sat down for another conversation on the October 16 episode of Sister Women. This time they discussed whether it was the right time to tell their youngest daughter, Really Brown, about their split and Christine’s decision to move from Arizona to Utah. “I really want Kody and I to tell Truely together because I want her to still see us as a team,” Christine explained. “She had friends whose parents got divorced and it was very ugly and a lot of fighting, and I don’t want her to think it’s going to be like that for her.”
Although Christine’s desired moving month of September was approaching, Kody wasn’t ready to deliver bad news to Truely. “In some idealistic, naive way, I still think we might reconcile,” he admitted. “I think I’m in a state of denial and I don’t want to tell Truely yet. I don’t know why but I’m really anxious to do anything but put it off so I’d like to find a way to keep Christine here and just make it easier and more convenient for me to deal with visit the children.”
However, Christine, who announced her split from Kody on Instagram in November 2021, has already made up her mind. She explained to Kody that she had already started to slowly pack up her house. Kody accused her of “rushing” into the move. “It feels hostile to me,” he said. “I feel she did it as a backstab. She could have started talking to me about our relationship a long time ago, and she didn’t. And she drops it on me and it looks really rushed. She’s ready to get out the door since she told me she wanted to stop staying.”
However, Christine insisted that the situation was actually the opposite. “For you it may have been a rush, but for me it was not a rush,” she insisted. “For me, I moved very slowly to accommodate you. To be honest, I would have told Truely months ago and I would have moved this summer.” In the end, Christine agreed not to tell Truely about the situation just yet to avoid making headlines with Kody. “I want to play fun and I want to play fair because we have to be a team and move forward as a team,” she explained.
Unfortunately, shortly after the conversation, Truely accidentally overheard a phone conversation between Christine and her daughter, Mykelti, where the topic of moving came up. At that point, Christine had no choice but to explain the situation to Truely. Due to the sensitive nature of the discussion, the talk was not filmed, but Christine filled viewers in on the details afterwards. “Her little face was so sad,” Christine remembers. “She said: ‘Are you and dad going to divorce?’ I could have said, ‘Yeah, we’re breaking up,’ and then every time Kody came over, she’d look at us like crazy and worry and wonder, and she might also have a false sense of hope that we’d get back together . Therefore [I told her] we are already divorced.”
Meanwhile, in a confession, Kody accused Christine of turning their children against him. “I want a relationship with my children, especially those who are young and vulnerable,” he said. ‘It’s almost like this follows a narrative. She sets Truely up with, “Well, dad’s never here anyway.” She leads Truely down that path. Christine needs excuses to be able to leave and I feel that she has been making things up for a very long time to justify this to her children.”
