Kody Brown's older kids have had enough when it comes to his COVID restrictions. Coming off the highest season premiere in six years, Sunday's episode of TLC's didn't tone down the drama.
In it, the patriarch of the Brown family is at odds with some of his older children who accuse him of favoring his youngest wife, Robyn Brown, amid the pandemic. «Different people think Kody's not being fair with his time, and he really actually is, they're just not tracking it because they're struggling,» Robyn says in an aside interview. «It's really easy to sit there and think of the lack if you're struggling.»But Kody then expresses anger after his and his second wife Janelle's son, Garrison, calls him and accuses him of being too extreme with his COVID protocols. «The fact is, in this environment, I'm just trying to keep my children, especially my small children, from getting COVID,» Kody explains, referencing the younger children he shares with Robyn.
Kody is upset with Garrison, whom he accuses of spreading COVID to all of Janelle's kids, Janelle, and Garrison's own girlfriend. «Then he's mad at me that I'm not coming around,» Kody says, claiming that his son said, "'I love you, Dad, but this is goodbye forever.'" Robyn knows that many of her husband's children from other marriages blame her for the COVID protocols the family has. «I know there's a lot of accusations from the boys about me and they're false.
