Harsh public criticism and a police investigation can't keep 'em down! The family on 'Sister Wives' will be back on TLC for a season 2 of the polygamist reality show.

According to Zap2It, the series will return in March with 10 episodes. Look for a 'Sister Wives' special to air on Halloween night and a 'Sister Wives Honeymoon Special' to air on Nov. 28. The 'Honeymoon' show will focus on Kody Brown and his new wife Robyn as they live as husband and wife for the first time.

I cannot believe they are bringing it back for another season! You have this DOG (kody) and his wife and his 3 whores all living together sexin it up when ever. Do you really believe this is a healthy enviorment for all of those plucky children? Sadly these women did not give a hoot about their children and their feelings by subjecting them to this crap!

Is it me, Are we living in the United States? Isn't it illegal to be married to more than one person at a time. We allow such nonsense to be viewed on our televisions. TLC is really going too far exploiting such behavior and little babies dressed up like young ladies..They should be ashamed of themselves. No wonder there is so many pediphiles and infidelity going on in America.

I agree. This is a man with 1 wife and 3 concubines, according to the laws of his state and the United States. The children by his wife are legitimate, and all the others are illegitimate. If he went through a legal wedding ceremony without divorcing his 1st wife, then he is guilty of bigamy and should be prosecuted.

Yes, I agree.....and he talks about "standing up for what he believes in (polygamy) ? Yet he was running out of Utah like a rat leaving a sinking ship !!! He's a nut-case.....but a helluva salesman !!! He's convinced at least four women he all that and more !!! Well, I think he'll have a whole lot of explaining to do to the teenagers......they're not stupid and will soon see how self-serving his actions are. And how about his criticism of people and their "perception" of his lifestyle, yet the talks about Las Vegas and how the people there don't have "their same VALUES" !!!!

A waste of television air space...Sister Wives is just a platform for a male chauvinist to try and prove his virility...scary stuff. The more television glorifies craziness, the more we will see of it.
