Perhaps the stars of TLC's Sister Wives should have thought this through.

Under investigation for a possible charge of felony bigamy, salesman Kody Brown and his four wives may have been better off not broadcasting their lifestyle on TV.

Officials say the Utah couple fivesome was being investigated before the show premiered Sunday, but you have to admit, Sister Wives isn't helping matters.

Kody Brown and three of his better halves. Fifths?

Police acknowledged that the publicity over the show's announcement prompted the case. Bigamy, marrying someone while married to someone else, is a felony.

"Upon conclusion of the investigation, evidence will be forwarded to the Utah County Attorney's Office for review and possible prosecution," says Lt. Darren Paul.

A regular Bill Henrickson from Big Love, Brown and wives Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn have 13 children and three stepchildren, living a lifestyle they love.

"If we raise productive, contributing members of society who are moral and ethical, that's our final goal," says Janelle, 40, who has six children with Kody.

What do you think: Should they be charged?
