She made her dream come true! Sister Wives star Meri Brown has been struggling to find her place in her polygamous family ever since her only daughter Mariah Brown left for college, leaving her with empty nest syndrome — and her 2015 catfish scandal only made matters worse. But now it looks like she's finally found something to focus all of the extra time she has on her hands — owning a bed and breakfast! Meri's storyline for Season 12 of the hit TLC series will focus on her trying to convince her husband Kody Brown and her three sister wives to support her new passion project.
In a recent episode, Meri sat down with Kody, Janelle Brown, Christine Brown, and Robyn Brown to discuss the possibility of opening a bed and breakfast. Kody's immediate reaction was that the bed and breakfast industry wasn't exactly very lucrative and Janelle was also on the fence at first, but Christine was extremely supportive of Meri right off the bat.
But since the show is filmed months in advance, fans already know that Meri did convince her family to support her new business venture because she just celebrated the grand opening of the bed and breakfast last month.
"I am beyond excited to announce the opening of Lizzie's Heritage Inn! We had the official grand opening and ribbon cutting on Dec. 13," Meri announced on Instagram. "This is an old family home of mine, built by my great-great-grandparents in 1870 and occupied by [four] generations until it sold out of the family in the 1980's. It has been a long time dream of mine to get the home back into the family, and after a lot of work, and when I say a lot, a mean a LOT, it is back in my family where it belongs! I am beyond blessed [and] excited!!
Lizzie's Heritage Inn is located in Parowan, UT — which is about three hours away from the Brown family's homes in Las Vegas. Meri was very adamant about purchasing the home because of the sentimental, nostalgic value it has in her family, and Meri's great-grandmother Lizzie grew up in the home — which is why Meri decided to name the bed and breakfast after her.
