  • Janelle and Kody Brown meet to discuss their marriage on Sunday's upcoming episode of "Sister Wives."

  • Their conversation eventually moves to Kody and Christine's divorce.

  • Janelle says she knew Kody wasn't attracted to Christine and would've left him earlier if she were in Christine's position.

Janelle and Kody Brown meet for the first time since their blowout fight over the holidays on Sunday's episode of TLC's "Sister Wives," as seen in a new preview shared by People.

They're meant to be discussing the status of their marriage, but Kody steers the conversation toward the fact that he felt blindsided by his third wife Christine Brown's decision to leave him, which she announced to the public in November 2021.

In a confessional interview for the episode, Janelle disputes Kody's claim that he had no idea Christine was planning on leaving him.

"It always shocks me that he purports that he never saw this coming," she says. "He's been telling me for years that he wasn't attracted to Christine, they were struggling in their marriage."

Though Janelle and Kody were only discussing a separation in the scene that Janelle was reflecting on, she says in her confessional, "I would've left his ass the first time he said that to me."

Janelle — who has six adult children with Kody ranging in age from 18 to 29 — announced that she and Kody were separated in December 2022. She told People in August 2023 that she was no longer married to Kody.

In People's clip of Sunday's episode, likely filmed in early 2022, Janelle tells Kody that she wants to stay separated.

Kody tells cameras that though they've gone through separations in the past, he always thought Janelle's relationships with her former sister wives were to blame, not their own romantic relationship. But as seen on past episodes of "Sister Wives," Kody made Janelle choose between him and her children for the 2021 holidays, and also didn't bother to call their daughter Savanah for Christmas, blaming his fight with Janelle.

"Sister Wives" airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on TLC.
