This Will Be the First Season Filmed After Christine Brown Announced Her Split With Kody Brown
On November 2, 2021, Christine took to Instagram to announce she and Kody had split.
“After more than 25 years together, Kody and I have grown apart and I have made the difficult decision to leave,” she said in a statement posted to Instagram. “We will continue to be a strong presence in each other’s lives as we parent our beautiful children and support our wonderful family. At this time, we ask for your grace and kindness as we navigate through this stage within our family.”
Kody confirmed the split with a statement of his own, writing, “Christine’s decision to leave comes with a great deal of sadness. We enjoyed many years together and I have a large amount of respect and admiration for her. Although we are moving forward on different paths, we will always remain committed parents.”
At the time, season 16 was about to begin airing, and would feature the decline of their marriage. Season 17 will be the first since the announcement was made official.
During the show, Christine revealed she and Kody were no longer having an intimate relationship.
“I’m heartbroken,” she said during her confessional on the show. “My heart’s shattered, to be honest with you. It’s over. The intimate part of our marriage is over. And to be honest, I’m not okay with that. I’m not okay with staying in a marriage where there’s no intimacy. That’s not a real marriage. I’m not interested in a half marriage or a partial marriage or whatever we have.”
On January 18, 2022, Kody and Christine’s adult son Paedon Brown revealed his mom would be on season 17, which they had already begun filming.
“Will your mom return?” a fan asked during a TikTok Q&A. “They are filming currently,” he replied.
