What Did She Ask on the Sister Wives Tell-All?

On part 1 of the special airing Sunday, January 30, Sukanya tackled all sorts of topics prevalent throughout season 16, including the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on the plural family, their move to Arizona, Christine’s thoughts before her breakup from Kody and his strained relationship with Meri. 

“You’re telling me that you don’t feel safe with Meri?” she asked the father of 18 at one point in the conversation, to which he replied, “No, and I never will again. I will be her ​friend; I will do what I can to protect her. I will build a house for her out on Coyote pass, but I’m never going to feel safe in an intimate place.”

During the one-on-one interviews, Sukanya also made bold statements, calling out Kody for “abandoning” his spouses when they needed him the most. 

“Abandoned? Please,” the reality star angrily responded while sounding off about his relationship with Meri in particular. “Take the word back. I take offense to that word of abandonment.”
