She made it happen! Meri Brown of TLC’s Sister Wives is the proud owner of a bed and breakfast, and she explained to Us Weekly magazine how she was able to purchase the property in the latest edition of the publication. Plus, the reality TV star revealed that she gets a little bit of help from others to keep it running — family members and employees alike.
Meri’s storyline for season 12 of the show seems to focus on her trying to convince her husband, Kody Brown, and her three sister wives — Janelle, Christine and Robyn — to support her new project. Unfortunately, they were not able to do so financially in the beginning. However, Meri, 48, told Us Weekly that she “figured it out” all by herself in the end. Good for her!
Meri is a LuLaRoe retailer and was likely able to come up with at least some of the funds through that venture. The reality is, some people (though not everyone) can make bank working from home for companies like that. Maybe Meri put a lot of energy into selling the comfy clothing in order to make her real dream come true.
Come true it did, because Meri was eventually able to buy back a house that had previously belonged to her great-grandparents and open Lizzie’s Heritage Inn. It’s in Parowan, Utah — a five-hour drive from the family’s new home in Flagstaff, Arizona. Meri explained to Us Weekly that her work there doesn’t take her away from life with her famous polygamous family. “I’ve got employees that I hired,” she revealed. “And my mom’s there.” It takes a village!
Whatever Meri did to make ends meet all on her own to get the inn, it paid off. The B&B was voted Utah’s Official Best Country Inn, according to the inn’s website, and has received four out of five stars on travel sites such as TripAdvisor and Expedia. That’s pretty impressive! We’re definitely interested in seeing Meri pull this off on this season of Sister Wives.
Sister Wives airs on TLC on Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.
