What Did She Ask on the ‘Sister Wives’ Tell-All?
On part 1 of the special – which aired on December 18 – Sukanya tackled all sorts of topics prevalent throughout season 17, including Kody’s troubled relationships with Meri and Janelle following his split from Christine.
“Why did you think [Christine] was playing a game?” she asked the father of 18 after viewing a clip of a conversation between the exes, to which he replied, “Because she’s a game player.”
“From the time we were married … manipulation, pouting, you know, temper tantrums. Just behavior things,” Kody explained, which Suki called “very cold.”
During the one-on-one interviews, the host made bold statements, including calling out Christine for her “bad behavior.”
“Do you believe your lack of attraction is an excuse just for your bad behavior?” she asked the mother of six, to which Christine responded, “I don’t know, but that statement just made me mad.”
“My bad behavior? That’s just insulting. I’m an adult. That’s just rude and belittling,” she continued.
