Kody Brown and his many spouses revealed behind-the-scenes secrets on the mid-season tell-all installment that was Sister Wives Season 5 Episode 9.

If you watch Sister Wives online, you know that while unconventional, the plural marriage-loving group is bonded by true love and mutual compassion.

There is always drama right around the corner, however, as we saw last night when Christine Brown stormed off the stage in the middle of an interview.

Don't get us wrong, this isn't The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion brawling or New Jersey table-flipping insanity we're talking about here.

She made a polite request to leave, basically, and that was about it.

We don't even know for sure what caused it, although it was insinuated via a voiceover that Robyn's plans for pregnancy may be upsetting Christine.

Robyn insisted that no questions about more kids be asked. That clearly tells you how sensitive a subject this is for everyone involved, and then some.

Christine also denies this was even a factor in her walk-off.

She Tweeted: "Why did I walk off set? It's not complicated but it's not because of Robyn wanting a baby. Honestly it was childish and I shouldn't have done it."

On Sister Wives Season 5 Episode 8, we learned how much the Browns value their plural marriage in what was sort of a giant clip show about their lives.

In other words, when you watch Sister Wives online, you will be watching them watch home videos and baby photos projected on a sheet in the yard.

"Every Brown Revealed" was the episode's title, and while most if not all of the Browns were featured, not all that much was revealed to be honest.

Except one interesting topic: Meri Brown and Janelle Brown openly acknowledged that as Sister Wives go, their relationship could use some work.

It's amazing that the women aren't all hankering to punch Kody Brown sometimes, given that the guy is happily banging three other women.

Not to be crude, but that's what plural marriage entitles him to do, while they don't enjoy the same kind of variety and freedom. This is simply fact.

Last night on Sister Wives Season 5 Episode 3, and Sister Wives Season 5 Episode 4, fans were treated to a double shot of the Brown family on TLC.

What does that mean for viewers? Double the awkward, well-meaning, charming polygamist antics from Kody and his many, many wives and kids.

On Sister Wives Season 5 Episode 3, Robyn's hard work paid off in securing a loan for the family, proving that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Then in Sister Wives Season 5 Episode 4, one of the emotional highlights was Christine revealing the truth of Kody's feelings about the move to Vegas.

It was a lot to take in for Kody Brown and family.

From the view inside the Polygamist Shark Tank, it looked like there was zero chance the were going to get the investor capital they needed for Robyn's project.

Well played, TLC editors ... because they did!

The fifth season premiere of Sister Wives, “Meri Drops a Bomb,” was not as explosive as the title would have you believe, but Meri did shake things up.

Sister Wives Season 5 Episode 1 kicks off with Kody making dinner for Meri and Dayton’s birthday and talking about his online jewelry boutique plan.

Dad of the Year Kody jokes that he feels uncomfortable snuggling with Dayton before bed now that he's 14; Dayton has been diagnosed with Asperger’s.

At dinner to celebrate Meri's birthday, she gets ready to drop the bomb. That's when she announces to Kody that she is ... going to go back to college.

She was afraid Kody would disapprove, but is relieved when he says he's excited for her and they conclude their dinner date with some dancing.

The next night is Kristine's, and at her house, their daughter Mykelti and her boyfriend John join the couple for dinner. Things are getting serious, too.

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.

After a long investigation, bigamy charges will not be filed against Kody Brown and his four spouses, who gained prominence last year on TLC's show Sister Wives.

The Utah County Attorney's Office announced Thursday that it will not pursue a criminal case against the Browns, based on the office's interpretation of state law.

Utah County Attorney Jeffrey Buhman said that his office has adopted a formal policy not to prosecute the practice of bigamy unless it occurs in conjunction with another crime or if parties to the marriage or relationship is under 18.

"The purpose of this policy is to prevent the future prosecution in Utah County of bigamist marriages entered into for religious reasons," Buhman wrote.

"The criminal case against the Browns is now closed, and no charges will be filed against them for bigamy," unless new evidence is discovered, he said.

Kody Brown and his four wives, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn, issued a statement Thursday, saying they are "delighted by the news that the prosecutors have formally declared that the investigation of our family is at an end."

"We have spent years under investigation and ultimately had to move from the state of Utah to protect our family and particularly our children," they said.

Kody Brown of Sister Wives fame says that even four wives can't fulfill all his needs. Just imagine how regular people with one spouse feel, right?!??!

In the TLC family's all-new book, Becoming Sister Wives, Kody admits that neither Meri, Janelle, Robyn nor Christine totally fulfill all of his cravings.

"To be honest, I'm not sure if any one of my wives could fulfill all of my needs, nor do I believe that I fulfill all of theirs," muses the dad of 17.

Kody then expounds on things that make each of his better halves so special:

"Janelle and I can talk business. With Christine I can enjoy the lightness of being together. With Meri the world is structured and organized, her house is peaceful and in order."

"When Robyn came into the family, she brought about an emotional honesty that required me to start dealing with things I'd avoided."

Regarding sex, Kody writes, "All I'm going to say is that I don't think my marriages are much different from anyone else's in that respect."

"The one constant is that I keep my marriages distinct and discreet," he stresses. "There is no overlap, no 'sharing,' nothing untoward or salacious."

Will the cast of TLC's Sister Wives make it an even five?

The crew was asked that and much more by Anderson Cooper this week. Kody Brown, the patriarch of the polygamist family, wasn't exactly dismissive of the idea of adding a fifth wife, though he didn't seem eager either.

"Certainly not right now," said Kody.

"That doesn't sound like a 'no' to me," interjected Anderson, before Brown elaborated as to how his religious beliefs leave the door open.

"You guys have to understand that I answer to essentially a higher call. I'm part of an order, a church," said Kody, claiming it's out of his hands.

"So there is a situation where I feel I am maxed out anddon't want to take another wife. I am not interested in that, but there is a requirement."

"I answer to a higher calling, and if that requirement comes along and I have a choice in it, then I will do it. But I would prefer not to."

Sister Wives took the show on the road this week.

In the wake of a more serious episode that saw them discuss polygamist leader Warren Jeffs, TLC's big happy polygamist family drama went road-trippin' last night.

The occasion was a panel discussion that Kody Brown and his four wives, Meri, Christine, Janelle and Robyn, agreed to attend at the request of a lecturer they met.

Despite fears of facing a hostile audience, the fab five and the four oldest Brown children (Mariah, Logan, Aspyn and Madison) ventured out to the East Coast ...

The family first went out to dinner with Danielle, the pastor who invited them out and arranged this, and some college students to prep them for the panel discussion.

Kody and the wives answered questions (at times personal ones) and a gay student, who worries that the Brown family wouldn't accept him, learns it's not the case.

"How can we say we don't accept your lifestyle, but please accept ours? We're not like that," says Christine, earning rave reviews from the student and her audience.

Sister Wives did a little preemptive damage control last night.

In the wake of the prosecution of infamous polygamist leader Warren Jeffs, TLC's big happy family drama decided to tackle the self-proclaimed "prophet" head on.

So what do Kody Brown and the girls think about the guy?

Sister Wives Wives

Kody's friends Andy and Nicole - who are monogamous right now, but were raised in and still believe in plural marriage - come to visit Nevada from Utah.

Andy wants to talk to Kody about dating a woman as a married man, as he has six kids and wonders about pursuing a younger woman with no children.

He also considers the Browns to effectively be in a divorce since the wives live in different houses, but that would just be weird otherwise. And awkward.

At home, Mykelti tells mom Christine how proud she is of her family.

It's true that for the Browns, they are surprisingly open about their lifestyle and that takes a lot of courage, no matter what you think of the way they live.
