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."

In typical reality show fashion, we already knew about Kody Brown's 17th child being born well before the episode aired, but Sunday we got a behind-the-scenes look.

The emotions leading up to Robyn's delivery of son Solomon were wide-ranging, including those of Kody's first three wives, Meri, Christine and Janelle.

How did the original three take it? What else went down?

At lunch, Robyn says she's nervous about how Kody feels about another child.

Meri, Christine and Janelle reassure her that "Kody's great" and that she's going to feel "relieved." Just what one wants to feel when one's spouse cares. Relief.

Robyn tells the wives that they are the reason Kody is so great. Heartfelt? Most likely. Politically savvy comment? Absolutely. You gotta get in good right now.

Christine may be coming around as a result, too.

... is heavily edited and broadcast on TLC.

After a trip to Boston last week, the Sister Wives stayed close to home and hit the streets of Las Vegas on last night's special episode. Girls AND guys night out, baby!

We saw Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn hit Sin City for some female bonding, while separately, Kody went out on the town with three of his friends to kick back.

What adventures awaited the Browns?

Before we get to the Strip, the Browns have zeroed in on their business venture. A fitness center, apparently. They want to open a gym, and are scouting locations for it.

What they know about fitness, we can't really say. Have you seen some of these people? Not hating, just saying. In any case, the whole crew is feeling wicked stressed.

The addition of Robyn will do that ... you know how it is when the family adds a wife, it throws off the whole dynamic. So what better way to de-stress than in Vegas?!

As the women decide to have a girls night out, Kody Brown stays home to help the kids with their homework, lamenting that he doesn't get to roll solo out on the town.

Ask and ye shall receive, Kode Man.

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.

Kody Brown and Robyn Brown, one of the titular stars of TLC's Sister Wives, welcomed the family's 17th child last week at their home in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With four wives and now 17 kids, guy's got his hands full.

Fortunately, there's time for fun and family bonding to keep the unit strong. On Sunday's episode, Kode, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn went camping.

Sleeping under the stars, fishing, complaining, yelling, mass chaos ... in the end, the camping trip was a lot like any family's, just much, much bigger.

Heading out to Big Bear Lake in California because it's too hot in Vegas on July 4 - almost hot enough to literally fry an egg on the sidewalk, but not quite - the gang heads to the mountains for a camping trip to reconnect with each other.

Some of Kody Brown's kids are less than thrilled, however.

Kody tries to chalk it up to hormones and kids getting pissed for no reason at all in their formative years. Meri thinks the teens are justified in their anger, however.

The fam did just move, after all, and Janelle sees resentment in her son Hunter, who feels that the Browns were basically chased out of Utah, friends and family.

Sister Wives star Kody Brown welcomed his 17th child yesterday.

Today, we bring you the first look (courtesy of TLC) of Solomon.

Solomon Brown was born at the polygamous family's Las Vegas home at 2:02 Wednesday morning, weighing in at 9 lbs, 10.5 oz. Here is the little angel with father Kody, mom Robyn, and sort-of moms Meri, Christine and Janelle ...

Robyn's pregnancy was the focus of Sister Wives' Season 3 premiere.

Solomon joins Mariah, Madison, Savanah, Logan, Hunter, Garrison, Gabriel, Aspyn, Mykelti, Gwendlyn, Ysabel, Truely, Paedon, Dayton, Aurora and Breanna.

Three of the children are Robyn's from a previous relationship, so this is her first child with Kody, who has fathered the other 13 kids with the Sister Wives.

Congratulations to the happy, unconventional, ever-expanding family!

Congrats to Kody Brown and the whole family! Robyn's the one in the middle!

Proud papa Kody said, “He's perfect and we couldn't be happier."

His controversial family is documented on TLC's Sister Wives, on which Meri, Janelle and Christine welcomed Robyn to the extended family last year.

The family recently left Utah and are struggling with the vast array of changes in their lives, separated in four houses in more-accepting Nevada.

Robyn's pregnancy was the focal point of the third season premiere of the reality show. We anxiously await Solomon's debut on a future episode.

Your thoughts on the Sister Wives crew:

With 16 combined kids and one more on the way, the titular stars of TLC's Sister Wives decided it was time to drop a few pounds and get back in shape.

Think the network encouraged/forced that nonsense at all?

Regardless, Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn were evidently quite serious about getting healthy so they visited a personal trainer, Biggest Loser style.

As if jealousy issues weren't already prevalent, this had to foster such feelings or did it? Perhaps meeting with theology teacher to gain "perspective" balanced it out?

Kody Brown, Wives

The wives all met up with Bill, Meri's personal trainer, at which point the four Mrs. Kody Browns got weighed in front of each other, much to Janelle's abject horror.

She weighs 271 pounds.

"My physical appearance has always been my Achilles' heel," she says, unclear on what that means, since she's still married with kids by the same guy as the rest.

Meri opines, "Kody loves me for me. Kody loves Robyn for Robyn... I know Kody likes my curves." Robyn concurs ... and despite being pregnant weighs the least.

Poor Janelle.
