Is she shading her family? Sister Wives star Meri Brown shared an image to her Instagram Story on June 20 that made us wonder if there’s some tension with other people in her life at the moment. “Never water yourself down just because someone can’t handle you at 100 proof,” the picture read. Interesting.

Meri, 48, is one of Kody Brown’s four wives. She shares his time and their family with Janelle Brown, Christine Brown and Robyn Brown. There have been indicators in the past that the women don’t always get along, and we’re curious whether the message might have been directed at any of the reality TV star’s family members.

For example, in the past, Meri and Christine, 47, have admitted that they struggle with their relationship as sister wives. After watching a clip of an intense chat between the two of them during the season 13 tell-all special, Christine said, “We’re still working on it. We’re still working on things, honestly. It’s not at the best situation. It’s not. Even if we were completely over it and better, watching things like that always brings it back up.”

Meri then added, “It’s not like it’s something that we’re like … throwing away. It’s just a matter of, when are we both gonna be ready to like, move toward something different?”

Plus, as recently as May 23, Meri shared another cryptic post on Instagram that may have been directed at the other women in her life. “I wish more women realized that helping another woman win, cheering her on, praying for her, or sharing a resource with her, does NOT take away from the blessings coming to them,” the quote Meri posted began. “In fact, the more you give, the more you receive … Empowering women doesn’t come from selfishness but rather from selflessness.”

Is something going on with the Brown family that Sister Wives fans don’t know about? Or is Meri referring to someone else? Unless and until the show returns, her followers will just have to keep watching her Instagram for more shady updates.
