One of the women who used to be on "Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" is returning for the next season. Can you guess who?
In an Instagram post shared by the @QueensofBravoPlus fan account, videos from an “RHOSLC” girls’ trip showed that Mary Cosby is back and filming for season 4 after a second season when she caused trouble forcing Cosby to leave the show in 2022.
During a trip to Palm Springs, the clip showed women from the franchise going into what looked like a restaurant. Cosby wore sunglasses and a hat as the group approached the check-in desk. Apparently, Cosby will be back, and so will Heather Gay, Meredith Marks, Lisa Barlow, Whitney Rose, and Angie Katsaneves.
After she skipped the “RHOSLC” Season 2 reunion last year, fans thought they would never see this Utah snowflake again in the Housewives mix. In February 2023, Mary’s return to the “Real Housewives” was announced. According to rumors, she would play a friend and film chosen scenes with the rest of the cast. But this new report from PEOPLE suggests that something big might be coming.
Queens of Bravo sent a sneak peek video of the women filming for Season 4 on Twitter. “We don’t know if Mary will be a friend or a full-time cast member. It’s still early in the filming process, and casting decisions often change as the months go by,” a source from the production said.
“When Mary comes back, it makes me so happy. I like her. She’s great on TV, but people often get her wrong. Mary probably needed a break after working with a co-star who seemed racist last season.” A source said she was going through much trauma after Season 2, but now, Mary is happy to be back in the group, and so are the other women. The women have said in the past that the show was missing something without Mary, but now, everyone feels like the magic is back.
During his two seasons on “RHOSLC,” Cosby was involved in much trouble. Some people called her to church a “cult.” She even said hurtful things about her co-stars, Jennie Nguyen and Jen Shah, because of their race. Cosby later said she apologized for her and her co-stars’ reckless behavior. She then decided to skip season 3 and the season 2 reunion, but after taking some time off, she wanted to come back.
Andy Cohen didn’t hide his disappointment when Cosby decided to skip the “RHOSLC” season 2 reunion at the last minute. Cohen said in a clip from his radio show “Radio Andy” that he had talked to Cosby and sensed she was no longer happy to be on display. The Bravo host said he doesn’t like it when cast members don’t show up for reunion tapings because, as your last act, you let the others control your story.
At the time, he said of Cosby, “I would much rather hear from her, and the truth is that she was a big part of the success of this show. She has been a big part of the show, so if she doesn’t want to return, that’s fine. But I would have liked her to come back to the reunion, say what she wanted to say, and leave with her head held high. Then she could have made her decision.”
Later, Cosby told why she didn’t go to the “RHOSLC” reunion. In an interview posted by Brough Chat, she said the show was edited only to show one side of the story. “I didn’t go to the reunion because I didn’t want to sit there and get beat up by only hearing one side of the story,” Cosby said. “They wanted me to talk at the reunion and answer all these one-sided questions that I didn’t even see coming, and I said, I’m not doing it.”
