Sister Wives star Meri Brown, one of Kody Brown’s wives, admitted Tuesday that she had an online affair … with a woman she believed to be a man!

Brown thought she was having an "emotional affair" with a woman who, it turns out, was a man – one catfishing her throughout their "relationship."

Meri tells People this week:

“During an emotional and vulnerable time earlier this year, I began speaking with someone who turned out to be not who they said they were."

“I never met this person and I regret being drawn into this situation but I hope because of it I can help others who find themselves in similar circumstances.”

Manti T’eo feela ya, Meri:

It’s been a rough year for Meri, who got divorced from Kody Brown earlier this year so he could marry her fellow sister wife, his fourth wife, Robyn.

Kody married Robyn so that he could legally adopt her three children from a previous marriage: Dayton, 15, Aurora, 12, and Breanna, 9.

This was, of course, a technicality – the Browns’ plural marriage beliefs allow him to share several times – but it still had to hurt Meri a bit.

If you watch Sister Wives online, you know it was not the first issue they have had making this arrangement work, and it won’t be the last.

In addition, sister wife Jenelle‘s daughter Maddie Brown recently announced she would eschew the family’s plural marriage lifestyle.
