Kody and Robyn “Don’t believe in vaccines,” says Gwendlyn Brown

  • Gwendlyn Brown said her father Kody and his wife Robyn are not vaccinated.
  • She called their choice “ironic” given the strict COVID-19 rules they followed.
  • Kody did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

TLC’s “Sister Wives” star Gwendlyn Brown said in a YouTube video Thursday that her father Kody Brown’s strict COVID safety rules were “ironic” as he and wife Robyn are still unvaccinated.

Gwendlyn, 21, posts weekly videos commenting on recent episodes of her family’s reality show as public interest in their lives has increased with Kody only dating his fourth wife, Robyn Brown.

“So, from my parents I’m pretty sure all of them except Robyn and my dad are vaccinated,” Gwen said at the end of the video during a segment answering questions from fans. “Those two don’t believe in vaccines, which is really ironic given everything that’s going on on the show.”

During the pandemic, Kody’s strict COVID rules included requiring everyone to change immediately upon returning home if they went out in public and disinfecting their mail, among other things.

Kody’s second wife Janelle Brown, and his ex Christine Brown, who was married to him at the time, refused to follow his directions and visited their adult children who lived outside of Flagstaff, Arizona during the pandemic. Viewers saw this cause tension between Kody and both women from season 15 of “Sister Wives.”

Kody is currently “divorced” from Christine and “divorced” from Janelle – he was mentally but not legally married to both of them. His first wife, Meri Brown, complied with his COVID rules, but the former couple announced the end of their “spiritual marriage” in January 2023.

Differing views on COVID-19 also caused tension between Kody and some of his children with Janelle and Christine, including Gwendlyn, Christine’s biological daughter.

In her recent video, Gwendlyn also responded to a fan who wondered why Kody was spending so much time with Robyn and not reaching out to his other wives and kids as much.

“I have no idea, honestly,” she replied. “I think it would have been so easy to do that. We did that a few times and it was super easy and really straight forward. I think it’s because he prefers to spend time with Robyn’s side of the family.”

In a previous “Sister Wives” rewatch video posted to YouTube, Gwendlyn admitted that she doesn’t like Robyn “as a person.” She added that watching her interviews and behavior in episodes of “Sister Wives” definitely makes me like her less.

All episodes of “Sister Wives” are now available to stream on Paramount+.
