Sister Wives Spoilers: Here’s Why Christine Brown’s ‘Basement Wife’ Comments Is Troubling
“Someone needed to take the basement — not fun, not a fun choice to make. It was super hard — I hated it. Because I hate conversations so bad, I just put my needs last, every single time,” she told Robyn during the last episode of Sister Wives.
Christine also went on to explain the hierarchy of wives in plural marriages and why there is such a ‘basement wife’ mentality that she herself can’t shrug off.
She continued, “The plural community, there is certainly a ‘basement wife’ mentality. If you have a situation where there’s a wife that’s a queen bee, well, the other wife goes in the basement and she doesn’t matter as much. And I’ve seen it enough. I’ve seen it a lot.”

Christine also added that a the basement wife of her family, she stopped having a choice and a voice and that what she did say or do didn’t really matter that much to Kody or the other wives.
And while Kody would love to see all of his wives living in the same house again, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen anytime soon. Christine told Robyn that regardless of how ‘thick’ the walls may be, she will never be the queen of her own domain.
Meri, meanwhile, said during the episode that she doesn’t like the terms queen wife or queen bee, even though she understands that there is a negative connotation to it within the plural community. With that said, it will be interesting to see how these women will move forward in their arrangement, knowing that everyone is upset over their ‘roles’ or even titles in their marriage. If there’s one thing that always breaks the camel’s back in a marriage it’s jealousy, regardless of how many people are in it. Do you agree?
