Sister Wives’ Kody Brown says he ‘severed family gatherings completely’ during coronavirus pandemic
SISTER Wives star Meri Brown says that she is finding it weird to not be able to get together with the rest of the family, amid the current pandemic.
The 49-year-old revealed that they are all staying in their individual homes for safety.
"I’m not seeing much of the rest of the family because we’re all quarantining, so it’s a little weird that we can’t get together, but we know it’s best to stay in our own individual homes,” the 49-year-old shared with Us Weekly on Tuesday.
Kody Brown explained that “normal life has ceased” for his unconventional family amid the lockdown, and said it had been an adjustment for him and his four wives and eighteen children.
“We’re all working from home, however, some of us are not able to do necessary travel for work, and some of our entire industries are shut down,” the TLC alum, 51, told the publication.
“Two of my wives run an online business so they are still working remotely but they aren’t able to do some of the in-person tasks they normally do," he said.
Kody told Us that their lives have obviously slowed down, claiming “there’s not much to discuss other than checking in on the kids, who are doing school from home.”
Speaking of wives Christine, Meri, Robyn and Janelle, he said they have cut themselves off.
“We’ve severed family gatherings completely,” he said.
“I’ve been contacting family by phone. Me and my wives have done a couple of conference calls and we’ll probably do more where we update each other on everything going on within our family," he said of their precautions in the current health crisis.
Christine, 47, revealed she has been passing the time by getting crafty – doing embroidery, cross-stitching and crocheting.
“We’ve been making our own products with raw ingredients, we’re really trying not to go to the store so I even made my own face moisturizer,” she told them.
Janelle, 50, admitted she thinks it would be easier to deal with being home 24/7 if they were not isolated from each other
“We’re having to be so separate,” she said. “We have to limit family gatherings, and if we were together, our exposure would be one less person going to the grocery store instead of doing it for separate households.”
Robyn, 41, told them that she is coping by staying in touch with her loved ones via video chat or by sending care packages.
“I’m talking to my family more because I have the time and because we’re all worried right now," she said.
Kody and his wives share a combined 18 children, nine of whom are aged 18 or younger.
Sister Wives airs on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
