Real Housewives of Salt Lake City has officially taken Bravo by storm. Fans are already praising how fun the show is, even after the premiere alone. And I have to agree. The drama is already brewing, the cast is diverse and most of all, they are interesting. No cookie cutter housewives of this franchise. These ladies are the real deal when it comes to who we want to be watching.
One standout is Mary Cosby. For one, she probably has the most interesting background of them all. She’s a Pentecostal First Lady who inherited her family’s empire of churches. But that’s not even the most interesting thing about what she inherited. She also inherited her step-grandfather as a husband. You heard right. Insert cringe face emoji.
But aside from the weirdness of it all, Mary has also emerged as the quintessential no-filtered housewife. Every franchise needs one and when Mary told castmate Jen Shah she smelled like a hospital after visiting her ailing aunt, she solidified her role as such. And when Jen confronted her, Mary refused to apologize and doubled down. What a moment.
Despite Mary’s disdain for sick people, fellow castmate Whitney Rose wants you to give her a chance. She recently told Entertainment Tonight why. According to Whitney, “She has, as you can imagine, many complex layers.”

Whitney continued, “She arrives to the situation a little bit guarded, naturally, so Mary is someone you don’t want to write off. You want to get to know her. So, give Mary a chance and I think she’ll surprise you, because she has so many layers.”
I’m a little shocked to hear this. First and foremost, I don’t think anyone is writing Mary off. I think fans are even more interested in her now that we are seeing what kind of person she is. From what we can gather, she’s not the best person but that makes her all the more watchable. Every Bravo fans loves a good housewife to hate and Mary makes it so easy.

Maybe she does have some additional layers to her. Maybe there is more to her than just being grossed out by hospitals. After all, she did explain that she had a bad experience there having all of her odor glands removed. What? No wonder she is so sensitive to smell, she couldn’t even take her own!
Now I’m not saying I hate Mary. I think she’s a jerk, for sure. But I’m willing to give her a chance as a housewife and see what she brings to the show. But for Mary’s sake, I hope Whitney is right about those layers. And I hope they come out soon. I am dying to hear more.
