Kody Brown and Robyn Brown's treatment of Meri Brown on Sister Wives was often downright intentionally humiliating. When fans met Meri during Sister Wives season 1, she was the alpha female of the Brown family. As the first wife and the only one Kody legally married, Meri was who the other wives looked to. However, things started turning bad for Meri when Kody asked to legally divorce her so he could marry his new bride, Robyn. Years later, Meri found herself in the center of a catfish scandal. She had unsuspectingly started a friendship with catfishing criminal Jackie Overton, who pretended to be a man named Sam Cooper.
