Re: A Sister wife is pregnant (reality show)

Her kids are on the show all of the time. It is just so hard to tell who is who there are so many.

Re: A Sister wife is pregnant (reality show)

Back when I had cable, I think I watched the first season and maybe part of the second season.  It was when the family was introduced and Robyn was going to be part of the picture.

 

That chick cried at the drop of a hat.  That alone made me tune out.  For some reason crybabies get on my nerves.

Sure they are getting paid for being on TV.  However, there must have been some financial underpinning (i.e., government welfare) that supported their lifestyle before that.  And not all polygamist families get television contracts.  So my conclusion has long been that at least SOME "families" living that lifestyle rely on government assistance.

 

Also if the assumption is correct that they are getting somewhere around $50K per episode, that won't go too far in supporting all the kids and houses they have.  The number of episodes per season is somewhat limited, as well. 

 

Not claiming to know their financial situations, but some people believe that this particular lifestyle in general might just be supported by "gaming the system".


You are correct! They were getting thousands in food stamps before the show. Those amounts are disclosed on all the banktrupcy filing documents which are Google plus a click away.
