Boredom + Reality TV + Sister Wives = WTF?!?

I really do try not to judge but I just have to vent a little about this show Sister Wives.  Not sure if anyone of you have seen it (I'm not really sure why I am watching it right now) but basically this guy has 3 (soon to be 4) wives and 13 children.  Truthfully, the only thing running through my mind is WTF!

I wasn't planning on ever watching this show but I'm bored right now.  Bored and too lazy to do the million things that need to be done.  I really don't care what these people choose to do and I'll leave the lasting effects of their decisions on the children to their future therapists.  What really got me going was while one of this guy's wives was in active labor, this guy is asking the doctor about IVF for a different wife who has only had one child.  Are you serious?

Now, I don't know about any of you but when I was in labor I wanted everything to be about me and Abby.  I clearly remember that right after Abby was born I yelled at my mom for trying to call my brother and wake him up for work.  I was mad because it was taking her out of the moment and I wanted the attention on me and my new baby.

I really can't understand how this woman could sit there, in labor, and listen to him getting information to help his first wife have a baby.  What do you all think?  Am I unfair to think this whole thing is ridiculous?  Could these women possibly be so void of jealousy that they can share a husband and a moment as special as the birth of their child?

By the way, I've already changed the channel... hello Teen Mom!


  1. I really do not understand this Kasey. I saw previews for that show and I changed the channel. You are right about the "you" time being essential. I hope you are well! Haave a great night!

  2. I have no idea what is wrong with the guy or the women but obviously they all need their heads examined! Lol.

  3. Haha I just wrote a post about Sister Wives too! That show is like a vortex - I know it's terrible and dangerous and yet I can't seem to stop watching. Curse you TLC! You'll be happy to know that wife #1 does talk to him about jealousy in I think the next episode, and he says "he understands" to which she says "Oh really? Tell me how you understand!" She then asks him how he would feel if she was dating someone new and he gets really uncomfortable and says he wouldn't like that at all, because that is against God's will - it might be a bit of a double standard, but it's true - God doesn't like that.
    WTF is truly the most appropriate reaction.

  4. HAHA I saw the previews for that and just shook my head lol! I mean how and what is going on in that house that seems right?! ha! Good choice changing to Teen Mom... I always need a little reality fix! :) I am looking forward to next season already!
