“Some of the older kids know that I’m leaving Kody,” Christine, 50, said during the Sunday, October 16, episode of the TLC series. “I really want to have Kody and I tell Truely together. I want her to see us as a team.”
The Utah native made public her split from Kody (53), in November 2021, after more than 25-years of marriage. The couple, who were married spiritually in 1994, have six children together: son Paedon, 23 and daughters Aspyn, 27, Mykelti, 26, Gwendlyn, 20, Ysabel, 19, Truely, 12.

“It feels hostile to me,” Kody told the cameras during the Sunday episode, referring to Christine’s choice to leave Arizona and take Truely with her. “I feel like she’s done this as a backstab. It seems really, really rushed.”
Christine, however, insisted that Kody had known about her goal to move in September 2021 for months — it was their daughter Truely who had yet to be informed about the life change.
“My life’s in limbo right now. Kody’s not ready to tell Truly,” she explained during a confessional, noting that she wanted to “play nice” with her former spouse since they would be “coparenting Truely for the rest of her life.”
Sadly, Christine and Kody did not get their way regarding when and how they would tell Truely. Christine revealed on Sunday that her youngest child overhead her speaking with daughter Mykelti about the move to Utah, so she had to break the news to Truely without Kody’s blessing.
“I have just said the hardest thing to my little girl and I don’t know what else to say,” Christine said in a confessional while holding back tears. “I just know that I’m going to remember this day for the rest of my life as the day I broke Truely’s heart.”
She later recalled the conversation, saying, “It was awful. I felt like a pretty cruddy mom today.”
Amid his drama with Christine, Kody also had to come to grips with the fact that second wife Janelle, 53, had moved her RV onto the family’s Coyote Pass property. He was not happy with the idea of having to live in such a small space while he visited Janelle and Savannah, their youngest daughter.
“I’m not kicking and screaming but it wasn’t really a choice for me,” the Wyoming native told the cameras, adding, “None of us want to live in an RV.”
