SISTER Wives star Meri Brown has temporarily shut down her beloved Utah bed and breakfast , Lizzie’s Heritage Inn, because of the coronavirus pandemic. Meri, 49, revealed the news on her Instagram Saturday, as the announcement comes amid financial problems for her family.
MERI Brown’s marriage to her husband, Kody , is over after years of marital strife, she revealed in a preview for Sunday’s Sister Wives. Meri , 49, made the shocking admission during a marriage counseling session with Kody , 51. The first wife said their relationship has been “pretty rocky.”
According to Heavy, Lizzie Heritage Inn is one of the most successful bed and breakfasts in the state of Utah. Currently, guests have the choice of staying in four rooms, ranging in price from $130 to $165 per night. Meri’s mother, Bonnie allegedly runs the day-to-day operations of the inn.
The bed and breakfast has four guest rooms. They range in price from $125 for Sarah’s Room to $155 for The Grandma Room and the East Room. The Bee Room is $135 a night.
The family began the series living in Lehi, Utah but has since moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2011 and the unincorporated township of Baderville, Arizona (northwest of Flagstaff, Arizona) in mid-2018.
After over a year of price cuts in an effort to sell Christine Brown ‘s Las Vegas home, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the home is finally off the market. As Radar reported, the price of the home was cut from $574,900 to $549,900 on September 19, 2019. The listing for the home was removed on September 24.
Meri, it has often been assumed, is the wealthiest of all Sister Wives. And, as one side benefit of being estranged from Kody Brown , this long-suffering spouse doesn’t really need to share any of her take-home pay with the self-centered polygamist.
They reportedly got married in 2019. Last spring, there was a surprising addition to the Brown family’s Wikipedia page. Kody Brown married first wife Meri the same year this possible fifth wife was born, which is wild to think about. Leah Marie Brown would have been 28 at the time of a wedding to Kody , who is 51.
As of 2019, Kody has been married (formerly legally and now spiritually) to Meri for 30 years, Janelle (spiritually only) for 27 years, Christine (spiritually only) for 25 years, and Robyn (formerly spiritually and now legally) for 10 years. In other words, Kody has four “wives” but is only legally married to Robyn.
These days, the majority of Kody’s income comes from his Sister Wives salary. According to CheatSheet, “reality families earn about 10 percent of a show’s per-episode budget and TLC spends [between] $250,000 and $400,000 per episode,” which would mean the Browns earn $25,000-$40,000 per show.
SISTER Wives star Robyn Brown’s jewelry company remains closed as Meri was forced to shut down her successful bed and breakfast amid the family’s financial issues. Kody Brown’s fourth wife Robyn’s online jewelry boutique, My Sisterwife’s Closet , has been closed for over a year.
Meri has funded the Inn herself after Kody refused to invest in it. On last season of Sister Wives, Meri asked the family for a $40,000 loan for the b&b , while she agreed to pay the remaining $40,000 for the down payment.
Online Advertising: This is a job Kody refers to most during the decade of the Sister Wives seasons. It’s the answer he gives when he’s asked what he does for a living . He said he sold advertising for the online world. Both he and Janelle are like-minded business people and very career-oriented, according to Kody .
In the plans Kody had drawn up, each of his wives — Meri Brown , Janelle Brown , Christine Brown and Robyn Brown — have their own section of the house in Flagstaff . There was also a main section of the house where the whole family could potentially gather together.
Sister Wives stars Meri Brown and Christine Brown might be running into some financial difficulty soon. That is to say, in addition to what the Brown family is already dealing with. Both Christine and Meri Brown work selling clothes for LuLaRoe , a multi-level marketing company selling clothing aimed at women.
