Just when you think Sister Wives can't get any worse ... maybe just don't ever think that, OK?
After all, with a supreme jackass like Kody Brown involved, things can always get worse.
At the very least, they can always get creepier.
But this new little bit of Sister Wives news isn't about Kody -- it's about Meri, Kody's first wife and the wife who found herself caught up in a great big catfishing scandal last year.
Meri thought she was talking to a man named Sam, this mysterious guy who sweet-talked her into an emotional affair -- and into sending some pretty risque selfies and voicemails.
"During an emotion and vulnerable time," she explained almost exactly a year ago, "I began speaking with someone who turned out to be not who they said they were."
According to Meri, "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."
So basically Meri started talking to someone, she caught some feelings for him, and then the person conveniently turned out to be a catfish, so the Browns could focus on that instead of the issues that drove Meri into the cyber arms of another in the first place.
Sure. Sounds great.
As we'd already heard, Meri and the other Sister Wives are allegedly fed up with Kody and his gross ways, so much that they're planning on leaving him.
Meri has had her own issues with Kody for quite some time now, but with the rumors that Kody was looking to take on a fifth and perhaps even a sixth wife, it's said that she definitely wants out, and fast.
And that's where her new fella comes in.
If we're to believe a new report, Meri has started seeing some guy who lives in Hawaii -- that's how over Kody she is.
"She's always gone now," a source claims. "She's always traveling. Meri has wanted to leave for the past year and a half. She's done."
We're thankfully not involved in the Browns' personal lives, so we can't verify this, but it does fit in with the great catfish catastrophe of 2015.
Meri was talking to that wily catfish in a way that made it pretty clear she was looking for love again, and most certainly not with that "spiritual husband" of hers. It makes sense that she's wanted to leave for a while now.
And really, more power to her if she's down in Hawaii, hanging out with some dude.
We have no idea who he might be, but hey, he's got to be better than Kody, right?
As for the rest of the family, the source claims that "they're in survival mode," and that they have a family therapist that travels around with them wherever they go.
Too little, too late, really.
