The tea has been piping hot in Salt Lake City every week since season 2 premiered. There’s never a dull moment, and this week, it’s Mary M. Cosby in the hot seat for skipping out on the season 2 reunion taping. Did she not want to take accountability for her problematic behavior this season? Or maybe she didn’t want to face the accusations lodged against her and her church? At last season’s reunion, she had to explain her marriage to her step-grandfather. The fact that the stakes somehow got even higher this time around says a lot about The Real Housewives of Sale Lake City.
Although there’s been no official word on Mary’s status for season 3, the writing is on the wall that she’s probably not coming back to The Real Housewives. And with her latest social media posts bashing reality TV, it seems pretty clear that she’s ready to turn in her snowflake for good. Over the weekend, Mary was seemingly doing some Google research about the harmful effects of reality TV, and she decided to share her findings with her Instagram followers.
The first stat she shared seems to come from a 2015 Toronto Sun article about how reality TV impacts audience behavior. Mary’s post said, “TV watching lowers IQ. And it increases rudeness too.” The post continues with a quote from a psychiatrist named Dr. Marcia Sirota that says, “Reality TV is junk food for our brain, and in the same way that junk food rots our teeth and makes us sick, bad reality TV rots our brain and makes us rude.”
On the next slide of her Instagram post, Mary took aim at the harmful effects of reality TV on children. Her post said, “Reality shows have a negative impact on our children in more ways than one. These shows focus on bullying, aggressive behavior and unhealthy competition, and kids often tend to confuse reality TV with the real world.”
This tidbit seems to have come from a ParentCircle article weighing the pros and cons of exposing children to reality TV. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City certainly has its fair share of aggressive behavior and unhealthy competition. But, thankfully, it’s not a children’s show, so let’s hope that no young and impressionable minds are being warped by the on-screen antics.
In true Mary fashion, she concluded her Instagram research paper with a caption that makes you pause and reflect. She wrote, “Food For Thought! * Only The Toxic Reality TV Shows* #thingsthatmatter Love you All! Trust The process!! #love #hate #noreason #unhealthyfood #protectyourself #lovetruth #reels #stayhappy #protect #your #life #racist #racism #is #reason #to #walk #love #you #seektruth”
