Sister Wives star Meri Brown is coming clean.

The star, who admitted to being "catfished" by a female admirer posing as a man online earlier this year, will open up about the experience in Sunday’s season finale of Sister Wives.

In an exclusive clip, a tearful Meri explains how she first became involved with the person, whom she thought was a man.

“I got into this place where I was talking to different people on social media and kind of making friends,” she says. “I got into this situation talking to one person who really made me trust him. He was just saying all the right things.”

Brown, 44, says that the person was “very kind and very compassionate.”

“I trusted him,” she says.

Though the finale is Sunday, the Brown family will also speak out on Nov. 22 during a two-hour special.

Brown previously told PEOPLE about the scandal that besieged her family: “I didn’t know how to get out of the situation without putting myself, family, and friends at greater risk. It was a very difficult time. I had a lot of anxiety.”
