- The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 2 is almost over—which means a drama-filled reunion is right around the corner.
- But, Bravo host Andy Cohen has confirmed that one star won't appear in the special.
- Here's everything there is to know so far:
From a Vail vacay gone wrong to a purple, feathered pantsuit that might go down in history, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 2 has been one to remember. But as this season draws to a close, there's only one episode I'm really looking forward to: the reunion.
Long-time Housewives fans know that reunions are when the most drama comes out. Between Jen Shah's ongoing legal battle and the rumors surrounding Mary Cosby and her church, RHOSLC's season 2 reunion has a lot to cover.
Usually, every housewife appears in the special. But this time, there will be an empty chair. Here's everything to know so far:
When will the reunion air?
The season 2 reunion was filmed on Thurs., Jan. 6th, according to an Instagram post from host Andy Cohen. "First reunion of 2022 and it’s a biggie: #RHOSLC ! #BabyGorgeous #Snowbound," he captioned an on-set selfie:
The reunion will air after the RHOSLC season finale, which is sometime in February.
Which RHOSLC stars will appear?
For now, it seems like almost all of your faves will get plenty of screen time at the reunion, including Whitney Rose, Heather Gay, Meredith Marks, Lisa Barlow, Jennie Nguyen, and Jen Shah. But Andy Cohen confirmed in an Instagram Story that Mary Cosby did not attend:
As for why Mary decided to skip filming, one source said that she “did not want to confront the controversy surrounding her this season," Page Six reported. “She was terrified of getting grilled about her ‘racist’ comments made toward Jennie [Nguyen] and Jen [Shah]. She also did not want to discuss the accusations that she runs a cult," the source added.
This season, Mary was accused of racism in multiple episodes—once after she said that newcomer Jennie had "nice slanted eyes," and again after she called Jen "a Mexican thug."
What does this mean for Mary?
Unfortunately, it's likely that backing out of the season 2 reunion means that Mary won't return for RHOSLC season 3. “Skipping out on the reunion is a big no-no for ‘Housewives,” the insider revealed.
“This was the kiss of death for Mary. She hardly has any alliances left in the cast, who hoped she would have shown up to the reunion to take accountability for her behavior and the allegations about her church,” they said.
What drama will come up?
According to Lisa Barlow, viewers can expect some truly jam-packed episodes. “I think it’s going good, I can’t wait to get into more,” she told Andy in another IG Story video. “This afternoon is going to be rough, it’s a lot.”
It's possible that Jen might discuss her arrest, her upcoming court date in March, and the end of her friendship with Meredith. Oh, and you can expect some jaw-dropping outfits, as always!
