Meri Brown has come a long way in 2023.
Rewind to January 10 and it appeared as if the Sister Wives cast member was at an all-time low, considering she and spiritual spouse Cody released a statement at the time that ended their marriage .
“After over a decade of working on our relationship in our own unique ways, we have decided to permanently end our marriage relationship,” he said then.
“We are committed to continually repairing any and all relationships with the family so we can move forward with forgiveness, grace and love.”
Over the years it was clear that Kody no longer saw Meri romantically.
Meanwhile, over the past few Sister Wives episodes, viewers have seen how horrible Kody was treating Meri toward the end of their relationship.
For example, he told her that things had ended on their anniversary.
Thankfully, last Sunday night, I got my courage back, took back my power and said this in a confessional about Cody:
,Fuck her, she’s not worth it,
However, these episodes were filmed several months earlier.
But now Meri has spoken to People Magazine in a new interview and she’s reiterated this strong and independent stance.
“I’m such a badass, that’s all I’m going to say,” Meri told this publication.
“And I’m very confident and I know what I’m worth and I’m a very good business person and I know how to create safe boundaries around myself. And, yes, it’s great. “I’m not that bad a person.”
It’s so nice to hear Mary talk like that.
For a long time, fans and followers were concerned that Meri refused to give up on an unhealthy and one-sided non-romance.
But look at him now, guys.
“People always tell me, you don’t know what you’re worth. You have no value. That’s really insulting to me,” Brown said on People.
“And it’s like, ‘No. Actually, I know what I’m worth, and I know what my worth is, and I know what my values are.’ And that’s why I tried to save my marriage for so long.
Mary had said many times before that she is fighting not just for her marriage but for her family.
It’s not easy to walk away from people you are close with and the life you have become accustomed to for more than three decades.
In this extensive People feature, the TLC personality gushes about how she “gave 100 percent my all” before announcing her split from Cody.
“I did everything in my power that I could. And if I had left before then, I would always have this question in my mind, did I do everything I could?
“But I’m very confident knowing that I did everything I could, and I’m very at peace with the timing of it and how it all happened.”
Mary also wants to make it clear: She has no regrets.
“There are definitely things over the last three decades that I would have had different, different conversations about. But I mean, hindsight is 20/20, right?” she says now.
“I think my family and the life I’ve lived and the experiences I’ve had have contributed to who I am now.
“So I can’t regret it at all.”
