Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is earning legendary status this season. Is there something in the water in Zion? Ever since the RHOSLC cast members arrived, they have veered from screaming rampages to drunken debauchery and back again.
One long-term friendship seems to be a casualty of the drama this season. Lisa Barlow and Meredith Marks were friends for 10 years. But Meredith wasn’t thrilled by Lisa’s decision to support Jen Shah after her arrest. This stressor led to a shift in the duo’s friendship.
Meredith and her husband, Seth Marks, were open about the difficulties in their relationship. They tied the knot in 1996 and share three children. During Season 1, the couple separated. Meredith shared that in the past, they had separated and even dated other people. But the couple reunited and went into Season 2 of RHOSLC in a good place.
During Jen’s “Cinco de Mayo Caliente” party, everything went left again. Lisa pointed out that Mary Cosby has not been kind to Meredith. Lisa ripped Mary apart, but she deserved it for being cruel to everyone in the cast. Mary called Lisa a “chihuahua” and “the devil.” Meredith didn’t defend Lisa. Lisa went inside and had a hot mic moment behind a closed door that will go down in Housewives history.
“Meredith can go f–k herself. I’m done with her. ‘Cause I’m not a f–king whore, and I don’t cheat on my husband,” Lisa ranted. “I f–king hate her! She’s a whore; she’s f–ked half of New York!” Then Lisa tossed her mic pack at production. Tell us how you really feel, Lisa.
When Meredith was asked about Lisa’s comment about sleeping with people in New York, she responded, “Maybe it’s projecting, I don’t know.” Meredith has definitely put this relationship on ice.
And there was yet another rumor about Meredith this season. This one was based on the theory that Jen and Meredith shared a boyfriend at some point. Whitney Rose asked Jen about it in Zion, but Jen said there was nothing to the whispers.
When Meredith was a guest on Watch What Happens Live, a fan asked her about the rumor. “I just want to know what your thought is to the shared boyfriend rumor that the women alluded to last week,” the WWHL viewer asked. Host Andy Cohen told Meredith, “The hot rumor is that you and Jen Shah shared a boyfriend.”
“So, I… Seth and I have not dated anyone other than each other [pardon]… each other for well over 2 years now,” Meredith explained.
“You know, who Jen has or not dated I have no idea. That’s not my problem and as far as I know she is in a marriage that she is monogamous in,” Meredith stated. “I don’t…I can’t speak to what she does or doesn’t do.”
After going all through all of this, including her RHOSLC co-stars thinking that she called the feds on Jen and that she lied about her father’s memorial service, it’s no wonder that Meredith was considering quitting the show. And after Lisa’s outburst, it seems like Meredith may be permanently disengaging from this friendship.
