Christine Brown Needs $50,000 for Daughter’s Surgery: Where’s Kody?!

Once again, the Sister Wives gang has found themselves in a major predicament.

And once again, we just can't seem to figure out exactly how this family works.

Christine Brown Breaks a Sweat

OK, so a few family members sell that Lularoe stuff, right?

And we could get into how awful Lularoe is and how predatory their business model is, but that's a conversation for another day.

Right now, we're talking about how they've been able to turn their Sister Wives following into a Lularoe following, and how they've been able to make a whole lot of money because of that.

Because that is very relevant to a sort of shocking bit of new information that Christine shared earlier this week.

Christine Brown Sits and Stares

Christine has a Facebook group dedicated to selling clothes, and it has just over 33,000 members at the moment.

And on Wednesday, she shared some pretty personal things with that group.

In a video, she told group members that "What we're doing, what you guys are doing by helping me so much with your purchases, is you are helping me get something done."

"I can't go into tons of information," she continued, "but one of my daughters needs a surgery and I need $50,000 for a down payment for the surgery, and you guys are making it happen."

Christine Brown and Her Weight Loss

She said again that she couldn't reveal anything else about the surgery, but she said "$50,000 for a down payment was so daunting, and so I decided to just work hard."

So she put more effort into making sales, and at this point, she has half the money she needs for the surgery.

"I don't know how we'd be able to get the surgery that she needs without Lularoe, without doing this, without you guys, without your help," she told her followers.

Christine explained later in the video that she couldn't say anything else about the surgery because it's going to be covered on the next season of the show.

Christine Brown Looks Good

But she did say that they'd discussed this daughter and her health issues extensively on the show, and when someone asked, she said that she wasn't talking about little Truely.

So if you've watched the show, this isn't at all difficult to figure out, right?

We're almost certain that she's talking about Ysabel and that the surgery is for her scoliosis.

In earlier seasons, we saw that after Ysabel was diagnosed, doctors saw that her spine was curving at a pretty fast rate.

Christine Brown and Kody

She had to wear a brace at night for her back, and later she also had to start wearing one during the day -- it seemed pretty painful and embarrassing for her.

Doctors told Christine and Kody that if the scoliosis kept getting worse, then they would recommend surgery.

Instead, they opted to send Ysabel to some camp to learn exercises that were designed to fix the curvature of the spine.

We haven't heard much about any of this for a while -- last season they were too busy talking about houses -- but it sounds like things have gotten to the point where surgery is the only option.

Christine Brown Looks Happy

If you follow the family on social media, you may have seen a photo of Ysabel in a wheelchair, so surgery is probably for the best.

But the thing that many people are taking issue with is that Christine seems to be relying solely on Lularoe sales to get the $50,000 for the surgery.

And isn't that pretty bizarre when Ysabel is supposed to have four other parents?

We all saw Kody buy Robyn the huge home that cost nearly a million dollars, and we also saw Meri feel the need to rent all those wildly extravagant homes that she lived in alone.

One of her rentals had an elevator. An elevator.

And what about Coyote Pass?

As far as we know, three of the wives own homes now, are they still holding onto that land in hopes of one day being able to build homes on it, which, by the way, will also cost an absurd amount of money?

Kody likes to think of himself as the head of the family, so why is it all on Christine to get the money for the surgery?

It's just weird to think of all this then hear Christine say that she's been pushing her Lularoe stuff harder than ever so poor Ysabel can get a much-needed surgery that could greatly improve the quality of her life.

What do you think of all of this?

Matt Roloff Claps Back: I’m Not Privileged! How Dare You?!?

Earlier this week, Matt Roloff finally addressed the ongoing unrest facing America, as protests continue to rage around the nation in response to  the killing of George Floyd.

In reality, however, the Little People, Big World star didn't say a whole lot.

He just offered up some general niceties and platitudes.

Now, though?

In the face of some critical responses to his aforementioned Instagram statement?

Roloff has A LOT to say.

First, a reminder of what Matt wrote in response to the calls for racial justice that have been ringing around the country for weeks now:

roloff states

"Practice gentleness, seek truth, give up anger, do not slander, and have compassion for all beings. Be gentle, modest, and useful to others," he wrote via meme, adding as a caption of his own:

"We live in times of opportunity to do better. I’m in."

Many followers took note that Matt didn't say anything about the Black Lives Matter movement or even use the word racism anywhere in this post.

These same followers had previously taken Roloff to task for saying nothing at all during such a crucial moment in history.

Matt Roloff Sits on the Farm

In the wake of Roloff's very broad message on the state of the country right now, at least one individual called out the TLC personality for speaking from a place of white privilege.

And this allegation set Matt off -- big time.

“That’s probably the most [uninformed] thing you [could] say to another human of profound short stature,” he fired back.

"Little people are not ‘privileged’ (as in born privileged) regardless of their skin color. LPs have to fight for every inch they get.

"What a cruel thing to say to someone who has fought hard to overcome all the adversity life has to offer … a community that struggles with so much bullying, discrimination, teasing [and] unemployment.

"Shame on you!”

matt says

Now, of course, Matt has some point here.

There's no doubt that little people suffer more than quote-unquote average or regular people due to their stature and some of the physical handicaps that hold them back in everyday life.

However...

... we're guessing Matt has never been afraid to drive a car or walk down the street because of the color of his skin.

We're guessing he's never been scared to interact with a police officer and THAT's what is meant here by white privilege.

Matt Roloff in Red Hat

Just a few days ago, Matt's own son basically called him out for the same reason.

After listing a number of organizations that assist with the cause of social justice, Jacob Roloff tagged all his family members and urged them to donate and/or to use their platforms in order better society.

"Tagging my family (those with great followings) because they have majority white audiences who desperately require a call to solidarity with these protesters and dissenters," wrote Jacob at the time.

He remains critical of the way his parents have handled this entire situation.

Another follower, meanwhile, clapped right back at Matt in response to his above retort by writing:

“You preach about being tolerant of others and overcoming adversity, but [you’re] clearly not in support of all of the unrest that your Black brothers and sisters are going [through].

"You have remained mute on the subject.

"Way to go not wanting to rock the boat with your core conservative audience. Practice what you preach. So disappointed with you and your family (except Jacob).

"You lost a fan.”
