Step aside, Josh Duggar! Another religious reality star has been caught in an online sex scandal: Sister Wives star Meri Brown admitted to People magazine Tuesday that she had an online affair -- with a woman!
Brown thought the woman was a man, however, the entire time they carried on their emotional relationship. She told People magazine it was a case of catfishing.
"During an emotional and vulnerable time earlier this year, I began speaking with someone who turned out to be not who they said they were," she told the magazine. "I never met this person and I regret being drawn into this situation but I hope because of it I can help others who find themselves in similar circumstances."

According to reports, Kody married Robyn so that he could legally adopt her three children from a previous marriage: Dayton, 15, Aurora, 12, and Breanna, 9. Meri, 44, is seven years older than Robyn.
In addition, sister wife Jenelle's daughter Maddie recently announced she would eschew the family's plural marriage lifestyle, and marry her boyfriend in a strictly monogamous ceremony.
