I don’t know about you but I am soooo excited for Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. It seems like we have been waiting forever but the moment is finally here. And it’s about time. Don’t get me wrong, I’m an avid Real Housewives watcher and always will be, but I can’t help but feel like some of the long standing franchises are just a tad bit stale.
With everyone going crazy from an election season and quarantine, RHOSLC is coming at the perfect time. I only got more and more excited after they released the taglines too. It truly looks like there will be no shortage of interesting housewives to watch on this franchise.
One such housewife is Meredith Marks. Her soon to be famous tagline is, “Jealousy is a disease, to which I say, ‘Get well soon!’” Love it.
Meredith, for her part, isn’t part of the Mormon religion that plays heavily in the culture of Salt Lake City. But as she explained to Digital Spy, SLC is so much more than just religion. Said Meredith, “Salt Lake City, it’s viewed basically as the hub for the Mormon community and that’s a fair statement, but there’s a lot more to Salt Lake City than just being the center for Mormons.”

She continued, “Obviously, the Mormon lifestyle does play a big role. There are these [incorrect] views that everyone is just a polygamist and doesn’t drink. That’s just not true.” I have to admit, those are some of the stereotypes that I was thinking about the area, although I did have a hard time believing that a whole Real Housewives franchise would be able to survive without their cast drinking.
Meredith explained, “Salt Lake actually does have a level of diversity there. You will see we have ethnic diversity, religious diversity on the show. We are all very different from one another, just in terms of personality and internal wiring. We’re all very different.”

Although Meredith admitted that the LDS Church and their religion plays a big roles in some of her fellow castmates, it will all come to fruition as the show plays out. She said, “Religion plays a big role in Utah – it does. It would be like saying religion can play a role in Jerusalem. It plays a big role in Utah. It is part of it. You’ll see how it all unfolds.”
I for one am excited to see a totally different dynamic than we have ever seen before on a Housewives franchise. And I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us.
