The new season of Sister Wives has arrived, with Kody Brown and his four wives high tailing it to Las Vegas, Nevada since they were facing polygamy charges in Utah. What will the new season bring for Kody, Janelle, Christine, Meri, and Robyn? Lots of drama or will it be one big lovefest?

Kody Brown and the Sister Wives said they “knew what the risks were” when they decided to do the reality show. Not willing to say how much they are paid per episode, rumor is the family receives at least $250k per year for their participation in the show.

In a new interview, Kody Brown explains why the family moved. He says,  “We didn’t want this thing hanging over us,” said Kody Brown, a salesman and the patriarch of the family. “We went to Vegas with hopes of having a good life, preserving the family. … We never did anything here at all to be rebellious, to challenge the statutes of the law, or anything like that. We still have our family,” Robyn, Brown’s fourth wife, said. “That’s all it boils down to.”

In the end, the Browns said they were glad they have at least raised awareness about their particular lifestyle and shown that even as polygamists they are a loving family.”We started this so that we would hopefully open and create more tolerance in the world,” Janelle Brown said. “I hope that’s what we’re accomplishing here.” Sister Wives, not as good as Big Love, but still fun to wach.
