(Newser) – It was only a matter of time before TLC, home to the Duggars and their 19 kids and, of course, Jon and Kate and their eight, got itself a polygamist family. Sister Wives, premiering next month, follows Utah polygamist Kody, his three wives, their 13 children…and the fourth wife (and her three kids) he’s looking to add to the clan. (Got all that?) The network president tells the Los Angeles Times the family wants to do away with the secrecy of polygamy and is “looking for understanding.”
