Seeking Sister Wife came to quite the dramatic conclusion Sunday, following a tell-all segment of the show. Not only did audiences get a recap of what happened during the reality show’s second season, but also witness the revelation of an off-camera interaction.
Bernie and Paige McGee, who was hoping to add their first sister wife to the family, appeared on Sunday’s tell-all and addressed their ongoing supposed trust issues within their 18-year marriage.
“Paige had expressed that she wasn’t comfortable with kissing or any kind of physical contact in that intimate type of way,” the interviewer prefaced in regards to Bernie’s developing relationship with potential sister wife Brandy. “Bernie, were you comfortable with that?”
“Don’t get me wrong, any time a woman is attracted to me, it’s flattering and I kind of want to act on it,” Bernie responded. “But, at the same time, I know where Paige’s limits are and I want to respect that.”
The discussion then turned a bit tense when Bernie said he wouldn’t “kiss and tell,” when the tell-all host asked if things remained platonic.
“But we didn’t,” Bernie quickly explained as he wife glared.
“You told me you didn’t, so you better not have,” Paige added.
‘Seeking Sister Wife’ airs Sundays on TLC at 10 p.m. ET. TLC
Just when audiences thought things couldn’t get more awkward, Brandy is invited onto the stage to share her side of the relationship, and eventual breakup, with the McGees. Referencing back to her date with Bernie, Brandy said there was undeniable chemistry and being intimate “was a natural thing to want to do.”
“It’s interesting because it happened, but not on camera,” Brandy said after a long pause and nervous laugh.
“What happened,” Paige quickly asked, clearly infuriated.
“A lot of things,” Brandy responded.
Though the events were accused by Bernie as being “terribly overplayed,” things continued to escalate to a point that Paige accused both her husband and Brandy of being “liars.”
“You kissed her the first weekend and you’ve been lying to me this whole time,” Paige fired back to husband Bernie.
“You made out with her in our backyard–and you,” Paige said to Bernie as she turned to Brandy. “That whole friendship, from the first visit before the fight at the second visit … you assured me you had my back and wouldn’t do anything behind my back.”
Brandy continued to accuse Bernie of crossing intimate lines; however, it was when the ex-girlfriend said she remembered Bernie trying to “bend her over a chair,” that’s when Paige had enough.
“That’s a lie,” Paige said in response. “Bernie would never do that. He has never cheated on me and he has dated other women, honey … You’re full of it, you’re a liar.”
Brandy quickly stormed off the stage with Paige close behind.
“What kind of person makes out with somebody else’s husband–a w***e,” Paige said as she left the studio.
“Your husband came onto me,” Brandy fired back.
Producers decided to take a breather and fellow sister wives came around Paige for support. As things began to cool down and Brandy was satisfied with telling her side of the story, the tell-all concluded with a much-needed exchange of apologies between the McGees.
“I’m sorry I wasn’t upfront with you,” Bernie said to his wife. “You were right about a lot of things, I should’ve listened to you. Everything you said, happened and I should’ve been 100 percent upfront with you about every detail.
“I love you, with all of my heart,” Paige responded. “I do understand that you didn’t know how to tell me or you didn’t want to hurt me. I want you to know that I’m sorry for making you ever feel that you can’t tell me things because of my reaction. I’m going to work on that.”
“I want this to work out for the both of us,” she added as her husband embraced her.
