Kody Brown holds out hope for a romantic reunion with her ex Janelle Brown.
Although the two separated, they wondered if a reconciliation was possible during the latter part of the Sister wives: tete-a-tete special. As for their future together, Kody noted that “Janelle has made it pretty clear to me that she’s enjoying her life without me.” However, he said he still wanted to work on their relationship.
“Oh yeah, absolutely. Yeah,” he replied to the host’s question. Sukanya Krishna during the episode of January 8. “But I won’t go somewhere where I’m not respected. Because love doesn’t matter to me, respect matters to me.”
Although Kody admitted that fixing his relationship with Janelle wouldn’t be easy. “I want to fix it, yes,” he said. “Yeah, but it’s a whole new negotiation.”
According to Kody, he and Janelle have been in a ‘new place’ after his split from his wife Christine Brownwhich was announced in November 2021.
“Christine is gone. Janelle likes her. It was just like, ‘Why couldn’t you have been good sister wives when you were sister wives?'” he continued. “It’s such a mess.”

Regarding his split from Janelle, Kody called it “pretty dumb for people who love each other, huh?” However, Janelle suggested that there was no more love between them.
“At this point, no. It’s not,” she replied. “It’s a duty, it’s a commitment, it’s a faith that tells you that you’re making it and sticking it out. I think if we both really sat down, we’d look at each other and say: ” Truly ? “”
And after being separated from Kody “for several months”, Janelle noted that she was “really happy”.
“I don’t know. Things got really indifferent,” she added. “Like, I didn’t care anymore.”
When asked if she still respected Kody after becoming “indifferent”, Janelle said yes. And while she said she still does, she indicated that she was starting to lose her respect for him.
“Yeah, but I’m so mad at what happened with our kids that it’s very difficult,” she shared. “I’m losing respect for him in that regard.”
Kody and Janelle share six of their 18 children together. Last season, tension between Kody and Janelle grew over the COVID-19 protocols he put in place, which allowed them to spend less time together.
When Sukanya said that Kody also felt disrespected, Janelle replied, “Well, it’s mutual. I think it’s a two-way street there.”
“I think if he had really looked out for me and my kids, he would have found a way to make it work for the whole family instead of menstruating and hanging out with his wife, staying where he was respected. and obeyed,” she added, apparently referring to his relationship with his wife. Robyn Brown.
Kody is legally married to only Robyn; however, he still considered himself spiritually married to Janelle, Christine and his wife Meri Brown. But in addition to being estranged from Janelle and divorced from Christine, Kody revealed during the one on one special that he no longer feels married to Meri.
“That’s the thing, that’s what I’m saying,” she said. “People change. Maybe he’s just in that place thinking, ‘She’s just not for me anymore’ and he’s finally saying it.”
