Bigamy is a felony in Utah and Sister Wives is a show about bigamy. That makes Sister Wives a show about a felony — and the authorities are not pleased.
The gang of 13 (including a foursome of wives) are under investigation by the Lehi, Utah police for their untraditional familial ways. Bigamy is illegal in Utah, although it’s usually left alone – unless a cable network decides to foot the bill, of course. Brother Husband Kody Brown told PopEater: “We are disappointed in the announcement of an investigation, but when we decided to do this show, we knew there would be risks. But for the sake of our family, and most importantly, our kids, we felt it was a risk worth taking.”
Oh? For the sake of your family getting to appear on TLC you thought it was worth risking a third-degree felony charge? This proves that four heads are not necessarily better than one.
