‘Sister Wives’ Stars Janelle and Christine Brown’s Friendship After Divorce
Sister Wives star Kody Brown may have tension with his wife, Janelle Brown, and ex, Christine Brown, but relations between the two women seem to be better than ever.
Kody, 53, is in a plural marriage with legal wife Robyn, 43, and spiritual wives Meri, 51, and Janelle, 53. He was previously spiritually married to Christine, 51, but the pair announced their split in November 2021.
The former couple’s break up has been a major storyline in the recent episodes of the TLC show and, most recently, Kody has been having a hard time adjusting to Christine’s decision to leave Flagstaff, Arizona, where the family currently resides, and move back to Utah.
Then in the latest episode, airing on Sunday, November 27, Kody tries to convince Janelle to buy Christine’s Flagstaff house after a buyer falls through, but Janelle is not keen on the idea.
Janelle, who shares six children with Kody, has been living in an RV on recent episodes of Sister Wives as she is planning on building her dream home on the land that the family bought in Flagstaff, dubbed Coyote Pass.
So, naturally, she does not take too kindly to Kody’s suggestion, and quickly shuts him down.
While things between Kody and Janelle may be fractured, it looks like she has found support in Kody’s former wife Christine.

Are Christine and Janelle Still Friends?
Despite the distance between their homes Christine and Janelle appear to be closer than ever and regularly share pictures of themselves together on their respective Instagram accounts.
Their children have also been spending time together and in March 2022 Christine, Janelle and some of their children spent the day together at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
Christine shares daughters Aspyn, Mykelti, Gwendlyn, Ysabel and Truely, and son Paedon, with Kody, while Janelle is mom to sons Logan Taylor, Hunter Elias, Robert Garrison and Gabriel, as well as daughters Madison Rose and Savanah.
More recently, Janelle and Christine have embarked on a health journey together and Christine recently credited her friend on Instagram with helping her « look better » than she ever has.
Janelle has been praised by Sister Wives fans in recent weeks for her treatment of Christine during the episodes of her leaving.
While Meri and Robyn opposed Christine’s decision to leave Kody and move house, Janelle has remained supportive of the star throughout the ordeal and some fans have even called for Janelle and Christine to get their own spinoff series together.
Christine is currently starring in her own TLC offshoot series, Cooking With Just Christine, where she makes her favorite recipes and is often joined by some of her children to put together the dishes.
In the series, fans can get a glimpse of Christine’s new kitchen in her brand new home in Murray, Utah.
Speaking to People magazine earlier this year, Christine confirmed that she and Janelle are « really good friends, » and that her co-star has « been supportive from the get-go. »
While confirming she is not close to Robyn or Meri, Christine added: « Janelle and I have stayed close through the whole thing. She’s wonderful. »
Sister Wives continues on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
