Ever since Season 16 began airing, Meri shared that she's been judged for the way she and her relationship is perceived on "that 'certain TV show,''' explaining: "I've been labeled. I've been called by viewers, desperate, pathetic, embarrassing, told I have no worth and no value, and a plethora of other things that I won't even mention here."

"In actuality, what you've seen is me no longer being silent," the mother-of-one declared. "What you've seen is me using my voice to have fun and bring humor to a not so perfect situation."

Meri insisted she knows her "value" and "worth," but most of all, she knows: "Who I AM, what I want in life, what I aspire to be, and what I feel like I'm doing a pretty dang good job at, is being happy."

Noting that she surrounds herself with people that bring her peace and joy, she declared: "I have friends, co-workers, colleagues, mentors, who fill my cup, and I hope in some way I'm filling theirs."

"I have plans and goals and aspirations that make me happy and fulfilled. I work toward those dreams daily. I overcome, I succeed, I win," she concluded. "And, I'm happy with myself."

Meri and Kody's marriage has been strained even before her catfishing scandal in 2015. Despite Meri's best efforts to make their relationship work, Kody revealed on the most recent episode of the hit reality show that he would never get back with Meri romantically.

The estranged couple wed in 1990 and legally divorced in 2014 so the father-of-many could legally marry fourth wife Robyn and adopt her kids.
