The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City started off with a bang and has been on a roll ever since. The cast is the right group of people to revive a stale and formulaic franchise. Everyone on the show has been up front with their lives. This has been a welcome change from some of the other series. Namely, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where they only focus on picking on one person for an entire season to distract from the real drama.
Jen Shah was open about essentially paying for her friends. Her staff are the only ones around as her husband is gone most of the time. Mary Cosby talked about the path to marrying her step-grandfather and running a church. Meredith Marks’ marriage is falling apart every episode. Whitney Rose discussed finding her true love, which included breaking up two marriages to get there. That authenticity is what makes this franchise so great. But the real “pioneer” of the show that has been getting noticed is the lovely Heather Gay.
So far, Heather has been the most grounded and genuine of the RHOSLC housewives. Heather also tried the impossible, to mend the “grandpa f***er” feud between Jen and Mary. Good luck with those two divas, Heather!
Heather’s backstory is also quite interesting. She married into a wealthy Morman family, had her kids, and thought her life was complete. But then her husband wanted a divorce. This threw Heather for a loop as divorce is a no no in the Mormon community. Ever the survivor, Heather decided to set out and “blaze a new trail.” She opened her own successful spa business. Heather also decided to makeup for lost time in a loveless marriage. As Heather stated during a Sundance party on the show, “I’m always looking for sex, but am not looking for love.” Woot!

Heather’s openness and honesty has garnered her attention from some heavy hitters. One of the world’s biggest R&B stars, Rihanna, sent Heather a special DM over Instagram. @Queensofbravo tweeted Heather’s Instagram story, where Rihanna wrote to Heather, “I’m obsessed with you!” Move over Lisa Barlow, there is a new queen of Salt Lake City!
In response, Heather tweeted, “Manifest your dreams!” @queensofbravo tweeted the Instagram stories Heather was referring to where she made her dreams of being on Bravo and chatting with Rihanna reality. In one story back in 2016, Heather posted a photo of Rihanna on stage. Heather wrote, “Love to watch her work work work work work.” Heather also posted a photo of Andy Cohen back in 2014 with the caption, “I love Andy Cohen.”

How can anyone not root for Heather? She stands up for her friends, has a successful business, takes care of her children, and is having fun on the dating scene. I’m sure whatever big dreams Heather has next will be achieved, and her fans will happily be along for the ride.
