Another letter from a fan

My blog is pulling in almost 400,000 hits a day on average. The weekends I get more. If you want to write your thoughts send it to Samuel@NotBatmanYet.com I love hearing what people have to say about my story.

Samuel,
I have been skeptical of everything on this blog that is until Sunday when Meri’s own daughter Mariah proved without any more doubt that you have been telling the truth all along. Kody has admitted he wasn’t around. He admitted he was not communicating with Meri during the 6 months you two were together. The rest of them all said she was not talking to any of them she was on her phone all of the time. Robyn said she tried to talk to Meri but she wouldn’t tell her anything. The only person that was around Meri at all during the affair was her daughter Mariah. So why would Mariah be upset at all if her mom was really catfished by a woman? As strong as Mariah is about feminism and women’s rights she goes against her mom and sides with you. She says the relationship was inappropriate. She says she was upset that her mom was engaging in it If all of this was fake Mariah wouldn’t be upset at all. She would be angry at you, Samuel. You can tell she was holding back a lot of information. You can tell she was saying things without saying them. You can also tell when Meri went to visit her how scared she was at what Mariah was going to think or say to her. No wonder her daughter is so upset with her. Mariah now has all of the missing information. Kendra confirmed she was upset with Meri and talked about it. Kendra confirmed Mariah told Robyn, herself, and Kody if they split she would go with her dad because her mom was being inappropriate. This was in June when Kendra was actually at the Browns house staying with Robyn.
You don’t have to say or do anything more to prove this was a love affair, you are real, and Meri is lying. Her daughter completely proved your side. Meri continues to refer to you as a he. If she was 100% sure you were female, she would call out the name and back it up with proof. She has offered no proof at all to a real catfish situation or even any threats. All she is doing is sitting on the couch lying about you. She was crying last season talking about how kind and compassionate you are. She was crying because she misses you. Now this season she continues her slip ups saying he, not she.
The point I really want to make is if Meri’s family and only daughter really believed she was in fear, threatened, or catfished they would rally around her with love and support. They are all pissed because you can tell they don’t really buy her stories. They don’t trust what she is saying. They or at least someone has been listening to the voicemails. And they have taken that knowledge to the rest of the adults. Meri said herself the therapy session was 6 hours long. If this was a catfish you wouldn’t need more than a half hour to clear it all up. 6 hours filming her explaining things and them asking questions about all of it. That shows how much the other adults don’t know about this.
If Meri was threatened by you or Lindsay she would have filed a police report. She’s a celebrity. There is nothing. She doesn’t even mention a lawsuit or anything to stop you from telling your story. I’m sorry but anyone else would have shut this blog down long ago. They would not stop at trying to get this blog taken offline and go after you legally. This blog still being here after almost a year and all of the proof still visible and accessible proves to me that Meri really doesn’t know. She has been fed information from her weird group of new online friends. I went to look at their accounts and they are all sadists. They get off on poking fun at you and Lindsay. They say the most horrendous things and this is who Meri’s talking to online now? These people? How come none of these trolls use their real names and photos?
For me this just doesn’t add up. I believe you now. It has taken me months to get here. I believe you not because of anything you have said here. I believe you based only on Mariah’s reactions and words. She is pissed because she knows her mother was cheating on her dad. She is pissed because she knows you are real Samuel but because of the show or editing she can’t say it. After all the TLC money does pay for her college and her fun traveling summer she’s about to take. I’m sure all of that guilt money is coming from Meri because Mariah has her exactly where she wants her. Meri will do anything to get her daughter’s trust back. Even spoil her with trips with her friends when Mariah should be focusing on working all summer to help pay for her last year of college.
The Brown family is not this big happy family they try to throw onto our tvs. They are a normal family like anyone else just a very weird, perverted version. Kody has 1 wife, Robyn, and 3 girlfriends. That’s all this is. It’s not even discussed about their religious beliefs anymore. It’s all about the dynamics of who gets Kody’s attention each episode. This show needs be cancelled so they can really fix all of the problems going on. The adults are all overweight, the kids are all overweight. No one looks happy this season. The stress has gotten to them. Meri has gained back all of the weight she lost last season and then some. She looks terrible. She needs to stay the hell off of her phone and really work on herself. She had true love with you Samuel. She let it slip right through her fingers to go back to what? To a man who has said he doesn’t care anymore and their marriage is too difficult to deal with? I don’t buy this show anymore. I’m not going to watch it. Sister Wives is fake. It used to be insightful now it’s no different from the Real Housewives. Each week it gets trashier and the husband is just running around completely clueless. Does he even love any of them or just himself? I’m done with this show. I’m sorry Meri has been lying about who you are and what you meant to her. On tv she denies you, in all of these voicemails she tells the real truth. She fell in love with you. She probably is still in love with you Samuel. Don’t beat yourself up anymore. You did the best you could to get her out of that cult. It’s too bad she was too scared of Kody to leave.

Letter from a fan

For months now I received 3 or 4 fan letters via email. Anytime the show kicks back in that number increases. People just want to share their thoughts with me. I do read them. Well actually the truth is Lindsay reads them first to make sure they aren’t mean. Then she forwards them to me. Lately I have been getting about 10 to 15 fan letters each week. People are starting to believe in me more and more. Not for anything I’ve said or done lately, simply by watching her actions and inactions. She is causing that, not me. I read this one this morning and want so share it. Thank you Melinda. When I am off work tonight I will write you back. I promise.

===========================================

You are not a catfish. I believe that you did not catfish Meri Brown. I am probably writing this so it can fly into oblivion of your deleted messages but I have to at least try to say this. I keep watching the show this season and all I keep thinking every week is how much Meri is still in love with you. She acts like it without the words behind it. She gets this look in her eyes every single time she begins to talk about you or mentions you in a coded reference. Many of us saw the messages back and forth on Twitter last year for months that hasn’t even been mentioned once. That was not flirting. Look at her Twitter account now that she is back in the cult. Nothing positive. Nothing full of love and heartfelt messages of hope. Her entire tone online has changed into this dark, bitter world of unrest. She looks terrible. She looks tired all of the time and still stressed. I can’t imagine what she is going through. Worse than that I can’t imagine what she is feeling. She isn’t hiding her feelings for you very well. She continues to drag you into the next week like she just can’t let you go.
Are you so sure there is no hope for you two to reunite? I think she misses talking to you. I think she misses all of the attention and passion you gave to her. I don’t think she is navigating being back with him. He isn’t acting like he cares. Why is this huge emotional fair not put this couple into therapy together? Why is it a family therapy session followed up by Meri trying to drag her daughter into therapy? And even Janelle? The main relationship that was damaged here is between Kody and Meri yet no mention of them in therapy together and no evidence they are even trying to…I guess work anything out. Yes he gave her a pass on the entire affair. Yes he acknowledged they have struggled for years. But no one is mentioning the one glaring fact that is apparent to all of the fans of this show. That Meri was much happier when she was talking to you. She was seen out in public having a huge smile on her face all of the time. The two times I have seen her at Walmart she has this lost look on her face still. She is willing to take photos with people but she doesn’t say too much. She used to. She used to ask if they watch the show and what you think about it.
Is anyone buying all of this? The family is skating on thin ice. A lot of my friends that used to watch the show refuse. How are the ratings really going? We hear mixed messages. I know you said some advertisers have pulled out and it seems that way because there are no commercials from companies that have never been among the supported brands we have all known for years.

 
I’m sorry to Meri but I just don’t see this as a catfish. All of the evidence points directly to a love affair. You don’t talk the way you talked in the voicemails or send the kind of text messages if you are truly scared of someone. You don’t hide the fact that you were talking to a man for months from your family. Last night I watched your daughter out you. She was not supportive, she was not happy to see you. She was hurt. You hurt her Meri. She has every right to feel embarrassed and humiliated. I would be if my mom had been caught sucking on a banana the day of my 20th birthday. You can tell Mariah knows more than she is saying. My guess is TLC edited out a lot of what this child actually said. She did not look comfortable talking about it. Last night during the show Meri tweeted out when Mariah is ready to talk she will. This show was filmed months ago. So Mariah has still not talked this out with her mom? That shows right there how much truth is in all the things you have presented on your blog. Mariah knew about you Sam. She knew what was going on and no one is mentioning the Disney trip.

 
Kody is as oblivious as a rock. He simply does not care about Meri anymore. You can see that. No painting, no apology, and no amount of new-found family loyalty is ever going to repair what she broke. They won’t even let her take Solomon on a road trip. They don’t trust her. Did Meri assume during the Tell All everything they all said was actually true? Kody said there’s no fault on Meri’s part yet he is stll punishing her. They spend no time together. They don’t sit next to each other and in almost all of this season you don’t see Meri wearing her wedding band. Why is that? If she is recommitted to this family that thing would be glued on. She is still lonely. What makes it worse this time is that Sam is still out there waiting and Meri knows it. He is moving on with his life yet we haven’t seen any new relationship or even mention of dating. Meri could come back to him. She could choose love instead of obligation.

 
Will she ever leave to follow what her heart is screaming at her? She is so clearly still in love with you Sam and I’m not the only one that is noticing this. She has lied about you. I’m so sorry she is doing that. Forgive her. Go get her. She needs you. You have a lot of support from people who want her to get away from Kody. You should try to get her back before it’s too late. She said multiple times how sweet you were. How loving, how kind. She always talked about how much she loved you. The things you said to her in text I have waited my whole marriage for my husband to say even one of those things. It is obvious how much you two loved each other. She is still in love Sam. She really is. I know you said you aren’t watching the show anymore but I’m telling you what I see. She hasn’t forgotten you. She keeps bringing you up.
I know you probably won’t even read this or Lindsay will and delete it before it sees the light of day. I kept thinking to myself why am I writing this email. I felt I had to say what has been on my mind for weeks. Please read this. You don’t even have to respond just know that you do have supporters out here. We are silent but we are here.
Melinda
