Meri's catfishing scandal rocked the polygamist family after her affair became public, but the Sister Wives star claimed in a new Twitter rant that she was a victim of the woman who tricked her, and not a willing participant in the sordid affair.
A number of sexually explicit voicemails leaked last year, featuring Meri complaining about her life with Kody and claiming she wanted out of the polygamist lifestyle. As it all plays out on the show, she called herself a "victim" in a new Twitter rant.
Meri's frenetic Tweets seemed aimed at downplaying her involvement in the situation. She claimed that both men and women have been victims of catfishing.
Meri posted a message about "brainwashing" techniques that are used against victims. The message said that someone would "isolate the victim." Kody admitted to Meri in a recent episode that he understood her misery. "You didn't want to be out of the family, you just wanted to be out of your relationship with me," he said on the show.
Meri tried to tell her followers that she was unaware of the term "catfishing" when she began an online relationship with "Sam Cooper." She later learned that her online lover was actually a woman named Jackie Overton.
