Kody Brown committed a faux pas on Sunday's episode of Sister Wives, claiming he wants to be "obeyed" by wives Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn in response to an incident during the family's stress-filled RV trip to Illinois.

Kody explained of his anger: "You know, I've had two nights in a row where I've been driving all day. Today, we've been fighting the wind all day, and I've had four hours of sleep ... and I was just done.

"I was just ready to melt down because I was too exhausted to sit there and try to delegate -- I wanted to bark orders and have them obeyed."

"We understand that you get tired. We understand that you get stressed out. You can't just throw out, 'I think you should obey me!' It's kind of like ... well, that's offensive."

Kody countered, "When I’m really grumpy, it’s hard to sit here and try to sell everybody."
