Real Housewives of Salt Lake City

Braunwyn Windham-Burke Real Housewives of Orange County

Season 15 of Real Housewives of Orange County started off with Braunwyn Windham-Burke revealing that she was an alcoholic. And the mom of seven kids dealt with a lot of other issues, too.

In December, Braunwyn announced that she is a lesbian. The RHOC star’s husband, Sean Burke, supported her completely. Braunwyn and Sean tried all season to hammer out the details of their “modern marriage.”

Lisa Barlow Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City

When we first met Real Housewives of Salt Lake City stars Heather Gay and Lisa Barlow, their relationship was already rocky. Lisa, who owns several alcohol brands with her husband, channeled Mariah Carey and denied knowing Heather during their days at the same college. Well, except that she remembered that her RHOSLC co-star was “a good time girl.”

This was news to Heather, who was upset by Lisa’s comments. Heather, who owns Beauty Lab & Laser, is divorced from Billy Gay III who comes from “Mormon Royalty.” She has struggled to find her footing since her divorce, and recently confided in her three daughters that she feels shamed and judged by the Mormon church.

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Heather Gay

Jen Shah is bringing the drama to the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.  Arguably, she is doing the work for the entire cast, because without the regular interactions between her and Mary Cosby, there isn’t a ton of conflict.  It’s as if these ladies are actually respectful and caring toward one another.

After last week’s disastrous meltdown at Sharrieff Shah’s birthday, questions were raised as to whether Jen is turning up the histrionics for the cameras.  Whitney Rose already insinuated that Jen modifies her character when in the company of her husband.  So, the question remains.  Who is the real Jen Shah?

Mary Cosby

Every time Mary Cosby opens her mouth, she says something that I can’t get past. I’ll never get over the recent Real Housewives of Salt Lake City episode where she said that she employs a family member to clean her home, but that she has never taken the time to know anything about her own relative outside of the work she does for her. She suggested that Jen Shah’s aunt needed to drink more water to prevent her legs from getting amputated. There’s just a lot that doesn’t add up with Mary (and don’t even get me started on her absolutely suspect finances).

Then, there’s the whole 7-11 conversation that we didn’t get to see, but Jen claimed that Mary won’t go to the convenience store if there are Black people hanging outside the front.

Carole Radziwill Heather Thomson

The 2016 presidential election was central to Carole Radziwill’s storyline on Real Housewives of New York season 9.

She hosted a victory party for Hillary Clinton, which she planned before finding out the election results. Carole’s tagline even played into that election loss, with her quipping, “In the politics of friendship, I win the popular vote.”

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Heather Gay

Last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City reached a new dramatic high for the series. Secrets were revealed. Glass was shattered. Middle school hip-hop choreography was performed. Now it’s time for the fallout. Which feels catastrophic for Jen Shah as she mopes around her empty ski chalet. Coach Shah is so angry about her outburst at his birthday party that he hasn’t been home in days. And it looks like her friendships with some of the other ‘Wives are on thin ice too.

Meanwhile, Whitney Rose drops by Beauty Lab + Laser to rehash the drama with Heather Gay. First and foremost, the cousins are in agreement that Whitney did absolutely nothing wrong by dropping bomb and bomb at the birthday bash and getting everything out on the table. But Whitney is a little miffed that Heather cut into her moment and interrupted the message she was trying to deliver to Jen. However, in Heather’s mind, the issue runs deeper than just another Jen blow-up. It’s about Jen choosing Lisa Barlow and Meredith Marks over her and Whitney. A classic game of Housewives picking sides!

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Whitney Rose

Whitney Rose racked up a lot of conflict with her Real Housewives of Salt Lake City costars.  In the latest episode, Whitney picked Sharrieff Shah’s birthday as the ideal venue to relay some gossip to Jen Shah.  The origin of the gossip was Jen’s arch nemesis Mary Cosby  and pitted Jen against her friends Meredith Marks and Lisa BarlowBy the end of it, the ladies had turned against Whitney.

But it was Whitney’s interaction with Sara McArthur Pierce that has created more calamitous issues for her.  Sara is a friend to the housewives.  She has a penchant for confusing their birthdays and serving paltry snacks to her house guests.  Sliced apple and pecans?  All joking aside, it’s a potential guilt by association that Whitney is trying to distance herself from.

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Mary Cosby

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Mary Cosby is certainly unique. First of all, Mary is married to her step-grandfather. This was orchestrated by her grandmother so that Mary could inherit her grandmother’s church. The unlikely couple has been married for 22 years and have a son. But it is still cringy-worthy.

Mary, who is a Pentecostal minister, was accused of speaking to her congregation in a less than loving way. There is an audio recording of the RHOSLC cast member allegedly insulting poor members of her church. “I don’t want no poor people around me,” Mary supposedly said in the recording. “Poor as hell. And if you ain’t poor, you’re stingy, so you’re still poor.” Her congregation must be really feeling the love.
