The Disturbing Truth Behind Sister Wives

If you thought a reality television show starring one man with four wives would be filled with drama, well, you'd be 100 percent right. The TLC series debuted in 2010, showcasing the ins and outs of life with husband Kody Brown, wives Meri, Janelle, Robyn, and Christine, and all their kids — 17 in total.  That equates to plenty of material to televise, but behind the scenes, the controversy and spectacle runs even deeper.
