And here we are talking about not holding anything back.
Paedon Brown, whose parents are Christine and Kody Brown and who is 24 years old, took to TikTok toward the end of the previous week in order to launch a pretty clear and direct jab at his notorious father.
“Any king who has to say, ‘I am the King’ is no true king. Any man of the house that has to say, ‘I am the man of the house!’ is no true man of the house,” said Paedon on this platform.
It seemed as though Kody was making a reference to something he had said in the first episode of the 17th season of Sister Wives.
Kody revealed to viewers on the episode aired on September 11 that he did not feel like the “man of the house” because of the way in which his spouses were disrespecting the very strict protocols and guidelines that he had established for COVID-19.
In addition to this, he mentioned at the time that he and his sister wives had previously come to the conclusion that he would serve as the head of the household once they had all tied the knot.
From that point on, Paedon gushed over his mother, who had made the life-altering choice in November of last year to abandon Kody and return to the state of Utah, where she was born and raised.
“Me and my siblings say that my mom is a strong, independent woman all the time,” he said via TikTok.
“People tell me, ‘Paedon, your mom is a strong, independent woman’ all the time.
“My mom does not claim to be a strong, independent woman because she IS a strong, independent woman.”
Paedon has never provided an explanation for why he gives credit to his mother but not to his father.
In March, for instance, he expressed satisfaction that Christine had escaped a circumstance that was unhealthy for her.
“[They spent] almost 30 years of working on a marriage,” Paedon told podcast listeners at the time.
“Her finally having the last straw when he didn’t want to be intimate with her…he said the words, ‘I don’t want to be intimate with you.’ Not just hasn’t been [intimate] in a while, but said the words, ‘I don’t want to.’
“[Their marriage] was rocky from the start!”
Paedon has admitted in the past that he and Kody do not have a particularly close relationship.
What can we say about the most recent episode of Sister Wives?
A difficult exchange between Christine and her husband, from whom she had been separated, did not break her resolve.
“I think what’s healthy for me and for our family is me leaving,” she said on air.
“I thought that it was okay to be sad. I think I was a lot sadder than I thought.
“I tried to be happy as much as possible and certainly I still found joy in things.
“Plural marriage is tough.”
