First: Did you know Sister Wives is the highest rated show on TLC?! Over Cake Boss, Extreme Couponing, Say Yes to the Dress and What Not to Wear?
That's according to a press release announcing the third season of the show about the polygamous Brown family, which premieres Sunday (May 13).
Sounds like there's some drama coming up: First wife Meri has to decide whether to take fourth wife Robyn up on her offer to be her surrogate, third wife Christine's relationship with Kody is on the rocks, and there's the little addition to the family, Robyn's son Solomon.
I watched a media copy of the premiere, which opens as the 17-child family prepares for Christmas in Las Vegas, where they moved after the reality show sparked a bigamy investigation in Utah.
Along with everything else, the family is still looking for a place where they can get four houses close together, but say they're adjusting to life in Nevada.
There was also an interesting discussion about celebrating Joseph Smith's birthday, which was a tradition in Christine's family. Kody isn't a fan, and the family celebrated Hanukkah this year instead.
As this season opens, the Brown family's lawsuit challenging Utah's bigamy law is moving along as well. A pretrial conference is set for next Wednesday, but it looks like it may be rescheduled. I'll keep you posted.
