She went to address the answer again, with a room teeming with employees behind her. “So, the real answer as to what do I do for my businesses – I sell LuLaRoe.”
She went on to elaborate on her role in the company, which primarily involves having a lot of fun. “It’s lots of fun, and on weekends like this, I get to come and hang out with all my people.

LuLaRoe – More Like LulaNo For Many
Not everyone loves LuLaRoe. In fact, many have expressed their dislike for the brand following an Amazon docuseries, LuLaRich. Notably, the docuseries gave fans a glimpse into the company and the people who work there.
In the doc, multiple past sale reps revealed that the company ruined them financially when they failed to sell merchandise. Moreover, these former sales reps suggested that they were forced to purchase, as per a report by The Sun.
To recall, Meri and fellow sister wife Christine Brown have been promoting LuLaRoe on Instagram for quite some time now. many fans blame them for the company’s success.
However, the duo isn’t mentioned in the doc. In a Reddit post, one Sister Wives viewer admitted that it is hard to sympathize with Meri and Christine after watching the LuLaRich documentary.
“They’re lying, scheming and taking advantage of other people. They’re awful,” one user wrote.
Another chimed in: “Meri just seems so desperate to belong to something and be someone, and that’s how LLR suckered her in.”
