"And with that ask, I had some special requirements that I wanted them to meet in order to come into the family and mainly that was there'll be other wives, you've got to be committed to me," he added.
In response to his statements, Janelle, who split from Kody in 2022, said that she and Christine, who also left Kody, didn't "deserve less" than Robyn, 44, just because they weren't "invited" into the family.
"It's improper for a man to be out chasing wives," she stated. "It's generally a woman [that] approaches the family and says, 'Look, I feel like I had a spiritual revelation that maybe I belong in your family.' He now keeps saying Christine and I asked to be in the family and Robyn was invited."
"Somehow because Christine and I asked, we deserve less [and] we should be happy with what we got? It wasn't like we were begging to be in the family. We simply asked, there was a courtship and then we all got married," Janelle, 54, added with frustration.
The trailer for the upcoming episode also addressed a new term Kody called "sacred loneliness."
