Can you believe the finale of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 1 is here already? Things really hit the fan in Las Vegas with Heather Gay, Lisa Barlow, and Jen Shah, so when the opening of Heather’s new Beauty Lab spot rolled around, tensions were high. There were a lot of flashbacks provided for proof of the crazy things that Jen said, but she didn’t really own up to any of it.
Jen noted that growing up in Salt Lake City, she always had to be defensive and ready to fight. Her defensive nature is what helped her survive. This has obviously caused a lot of issues with the group and left Jen on the outside looking in. While Heather was trying to be a good friend and be honest with her, Jen didn’t want honesty. Jen wanted someone to offer blind support and be on her side with the drama.
Meredith Marks shows up in a crystalized face mask that threw off her balance…and the audience. “This is high fashion, people in Utah just don’t understand,” she said through her mask. Perhaps she was having a bad skin day. Meredith and Lisa seemed to be going through a rough patch in their friendship due to some of the decisions Meredith has been making, but she’s pretty focused on herself it seems.
Once Jen showed up to the party, as usual, the injectables hit the fan. Jen apologized to Meredith and the apology train just kept on chugging along. “I appreciate everything you are saying, but I need actions over time to show that the words are true,” Meredith remarked to Jen. Heather was also not very understanding of Jen’s antics. “Just own it, you have not shown up for me!”
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 1 finale brought little reconciliation and a lot of fashion…mistakes.
And when it comes to Mrs. Mary Cosby, it seems she was really only on the cast for shock value. Mary took us to church with her during the finale where she shamed her choir members for various reasons, such as being overweight and not paying enough attention.
It has been suggested that she was promoted to full-time at the last minute and that’s why she wasn’t involved in a lot of group scenes. She brought nothing but her marriage to her grandfather to the table, and though she promised to read people like a scripture, she was trapped in her closet too much to get that opportunity.
When it comes down to it, the first season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City delivered in a time when we really needed it. There’s definitely enough drama to carry us into season 2, and we look forward to watching Jen and Heather face off next season…if they are around.
