SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The newest polygamous family from Utah on reality TV says sharing their story with a wide audience has been liberating.
The first of nine episodes chronicling the life of Brady Williams, his five wives and their 24 children airs Sunday on TLC. A pilot episode aired last fall of the show, being called "My Five Wives."
Williams and his wives said in an interview with The Associated Press that they enjoy being able live openly and not worry about who knows about their lifestyle.
They say a December ruling from a federal judge in Utah striking down key parts of the state's polygamy laws has made them feel less apprehensive about possible prosecution. But they say they won't feel totally comfortable until an appeals court upholds the ruling.
