SISTER Wives star Christine Brown begged followers to join her clothing sales team for the “amazing deal” of $500 as her family continues to struggle financially.
Christine, 48, works for multi-level marketing company LuLaRoe that sells women’s clothing.
On Tuesday, she posted a photo wearing a pink blazer and thanked her followers for talking her into keeping it.
She wrote: “That’s one of the perks of being a LuLaRoe consultant! Our amazing, inspiring and kind group. I’m truly blessed your here! Another perk is being able to work from home. I’ve worked retail, telephone customer service in a call center, banking, a short stint as Hardee’s birthday clown too!
“I’ve worked many many jobs. My favorite job ever though is being a MOM! And LuLaRoe has made it possible for me to work with my kids around. They LOVE me being home and being able to take care of them. Though there are many reasons to LOVE LULAROE, you have to know the company is WONDERFUL to work for! I loge selling cheerful, classy, and comfortable clothes that people LOVE!”
Kody’s third wife continued: “Right now, it’s $500 to join. You pick 65 pieces for $500! Seriously!! That’s an AMAZING DEAL!! And you’ll be part of my team if you join MY TEAM! I will do my best to help you succeed.”
She continued that her daughter Mykelti Padron, who is also a seller, will “host weekly trainings” and can help make this a “successful” and “fun” career.
She then provided a link to her page for followers to join.
Mykelti helped by commenting: “YASSS JOIN THIS AMAZING TEAM!!! I will also help train you but my mom is a total NINJA.”
According to the LuLaRoe website, it costs $499 for 65 pieces of inventory to join.
Those who recruit sales consultants to their team can earn bonuses off orders made by their members.
The bonuses are three to five percent of the price of the orders, according to First Quarter Finance.
Christine begging fans to join her team comes amid money problems for the Brown family.
In June, Christine revealed she needs $50,000 for a down payment on her daughter’s surgery.
Though Christine was unable to disclose which daughter is undergoing surgery, it is likely her daughter Ysabel, who suffers from scoliosis.
She thanked her followers for purchasing her clothing items and encouraged them to continue, as she had raised $25,000 so far.
In addition to the expensive surgery, Sister Wives stars Meri, 49, Janelle, 50, Christine and Robyn, 41, struggled to sell their homes in Las Vegas before the family moved to Flagstaff, Arizona.
They bought $820,000 worth of land to build four homes on.
While Meri and Janelle are renting homes, Christine purchased a house for $520,000, while Robyn bought a home for $890,000.
On Sister Wives, Christine told the cameras: “Financially, we’re drowning.”
Kody added: “Basically we’re paying four, no five mortgages with the Coyote Pass property.”
Kody and Robyn also applied for a home equity line of credit in the amount of $150,000 on March 20, 2020 for their home, which was approved.
Kody’s first wife Meri also sells LuLaRoe clothing and holds weekly Facebook Live sales.
The Sun previously reported LuLaRoe is involved in a court war after being hit with an illegal pyramid scheme lawsuit.
In January 2019, the State of Washington sued LuLaRoe, founders Mark Stidham and DeAnne Brady, and other Defendants for illegal pyramid, misleading income claims and more.
In the lawsuit, LuLaRoe is accused of "primarily rewarding participants on recruitment of new participants rather than on bona fide retail sales, thereby resulting in a substantial percentage of participants losing money.”
The Plaintiff asked the Court issue a “permanent injunction enjoining and restraining” Defendants and their employees from “continuing or engaging in the unlawful conduct.”
How much did the Browns from Sister Wives sell their Vegas homes for?
THE BROWNS from Sister Wives sold their properties to relocate to Arizona for Robyn’s son, who got a scholarship to the university.
The homes that were apparently sold took a cut and sold for less than what the asking price was.
Janelle’s home was sold in April of 2019 for $575,000 and the house also had trouble selling.
Meri sold her home in June of 2019 for $574,900 and took a cut considering it originally listed for $599,900 early in 2019.
The Washington Attorney General said in a press release at the time of the lawsuit: “LuLaRoe tricked consumers into buying into its pyramid scheme with deceptive claims of high profits and refunds for unsold merchandise.
“Instead, many Washingtonians lost money and were left with piles of unsold merchandise and broken promises from LuLaRoe. It’s time to hold LuLaRoe accountable for its deception.”
In LuLaRoe’s response to the lawsuit, the Defendants “denied” they conducted an unlawful pyramid scheme and asked the complaint be dismissed.
The case remains ongoing, as there is a hearing set for August.
