The world of reality TV is often rife with drama, and the Real Housewives franchise is no exception. Whether you love her or loathe her, Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Mary Cosby has become one of the most polarizing figures in the reality TV landscape. Her recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live (WWHL) has fans and co-stars alike questioning her actions and intent. So, let’s dissect the situation.
RHOSLC: Is It Just Mary’s Mouth or More?
Mary Cosby burst onto the Real Housewives scene as a breath of fresh, albeit controversial, air. Adorned in haute couture and delivering unpredictable one-liners, she’s often the center of attention. However, her recent actions have led to serious criticism. From making ethnically insensitive comments to body-shaming co-star Heather Gay, Mary’s behavior is leaving a lot of us puzzled.
Just last night, Mary escalated the situation further on WWHL by insulting Heather Gay’s body and accusing her of wearing a counterfeit designer corset. Instead of issuing an apology, Mary insisted it’s her “opinion,” thereby pouring gasoline on an already raging fire. So, what makes this event so shocking?
RHOSLC : Social Media Erupts in Support for Heather Gay
Heather Gay, who had a tumultuous last season, seems to have taken the high road in this scenario. Rather than getting involved in a war of words, she responded graciously. Today, she took to Instagram to post a photo of herself in the controversial corset with a shoutout to Gucci for being inclusive. The post has already garnered a flood of support, including from Lisa Barlow and former RHOSLC friend Angie Harrington.
And then there are the fans. One fan commented, “Never take heat from someone who married their step-grandfather,” alluding to another one of Mary’s well-publicized controversies. It appears that Mary’s comment not only ruffled feathers but also left fans fuming. In the court of public opinion, the scales seem to be tipping decidedly away from Mary.
What makes this even more intriguing is Mary’s stance. Dressed in a luxurious Fendi jumpsuit while passing judgement, she remains unapologetic, adding another layer of complexity to the ongoing feud.
