Shortly after Sister Wives star Meri Brown confirmed that she was not only having an online affair, but also claimed she was “Catfished” — as she alleged the man she fell for online isn’t who he claims to be — the story has taken yet another complicated turn.
Voicemails left by Meri for “Sam” — her online suitor who maintains he’s very much a man and a real person — reveal just how unhappy the mother-of-one is in her relationship with her ex-husband, Kody Brown, who she divorced earlier this year.

In one of these voicemails, the 43-year-old reality star slams her ex-husband, saying, “I wasn’t, I wasn’t comparing you in anyway — you know what, guess what? If I were to compare you, you would win on all counts. You win on all f--king levels. Now I’m pissed. You don’t think that — you don’t think that you’d be out? You don’t think that I think that you’re taller, better looking. Better looking, anyway. Kinder, sweeter, you care about me. You want me. You say that you’re willing to fight for me, you say all these things about love and affection and passion. So yeah, if I were to compare you, you win all the time.”
In another, Meri discusses plans to meet up with “Sam” in Utah, and affectionately declares, “I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you. I just do.”
While the voicemails reveal the extent of how unhappy Meri is in her relationship, her misery likely won’t come as a surprise to fans of Sister Wives.
Not only did Kody divorce Meri, his first wife, so he could legally marry his fourth wife, Robyn, but on the season 6 premiere, Kody essentially forbid everyone — most notably, Meri — from taking part in the marriage, which allowed him to adopt Robyn’s children from a previous relationship.
“There is part of me that feels just a little bit of rejection,” Meri lamented on the season premiere.
