Sister Wives' Kody Brown may have four wives and 17 kids, but that does not make the polygamist reality TV star a womanizer, he insists.
In a new tell-all interview with NBC News' Natalie Morales, Kody and wives Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn were grilled about their lifestyle.
Their new book, Becoming Sister Wives, also details much of the same material, notably Kody's past and his many girlfriends in high school.
Some viewers might say that's not particularly surprising, considering he now has four wives (he's only legally married to his first wife, Meri).
Kody explained in the interview with Morales that when he was 14, he was trying to figure out his life as a wild boy, before his "calling."
His calling as a spiritual person, that is.
Natalie's response? "So it wasn't that you chose religion to be a womanizer?" Incredulous and stunned, Kody replied, "Is that what you think I am, a womanizer?"
He went on to defend himself, insisting that he had "done the emotional work" in his relationships and "shouldered their needs as much as I could."
He insists, "I was never womanizing. ... This is NOT an open marriage."
Is it, though? No doubt he cares for each, but is religion just providing cover for him to pursue new women? Wonder what Meri & Co. think deep down.
