Le star di “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” sono abituate al fatto che le loro vite siano mescolate al dramma legale in questi giorni. A luglio, Jen Shah si è dichiarata colpevole di uno schema di telemarketing che prevedeva la truffa di centinaia di persone con il suo ex assistente, Stuart Smith, secondo atti del tribunale. Nonostante si sia dichiarata colpevole, un trailer della terza stagione di “RHOSLC” mostra Shah che proclama la sua innocenza e punta il dito contro il suo ex assistente. Nel teaser, Shah ha sentito dire ai suoi co-protagonisti: “Sono stata interpretata da Stuart Smith. Non sarei affatto in questa cosa se non fosse stato per Stuart”.
While we'll have to wait for the fate of Shah's future, one "RHOSLC" star who was visibly absent from the new trailer is currently celebrating a legal victory. Mary Cosby, who appeared in the show's first two seasons, found herself facing two misdemeanor charges in April 2021 for an incident involving a minor earlier that same year, cites Us Weekly. Cosby's drama won't be unfolded on camera like Shah's, though, as a source told People, "Mary has not been filming," and confirmed her exit from the franchise. Page Six reported that Cosby ditched the Season 2 reunion following accusations that her church was a cult.
However, it appears that things are now looking up for the former reality star.
Mary Cosby stood by her innocence
Mary Cosby has cleared her name of any misdoing amid getting slapped with two misdemeanor charges in April 2021. The former "Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" star claimed her innocence until both her legal charges were dropped — one for "unlawfully providing shelter to a runaway" and another for "contributing to the delinquency of a minor," reports Page Six. Cosby's rep at the time commented the reality star was "dragged into another family's domestic situation."
Cosby fired back with a not guilty plea after receiving the charges and in September 2021, court filings obtained by Fox 13 showed that both charges against her have been dropped. The "RHOSLC" star's lawyer, Stephen McCaughey, commented on the legal victory, telling the Salt Lake City news outlet, "In this case, the right decision was made to dismiss it and she's happy with that."
Cosby also took to Instagram to celebrate the misdemeanor charges being dropped against her, writing in a post on September 18, "Truth will always Stand ... Don't worry about haters let them worry about you." Cosby's former castmate, Meredith Marks, commented three red heart emoji's on the post. Others are now wishing they could have seen Cosby's situation unfold on camera, as there is little publicly known about the alleged incident. One person chimed in on Cosby's post, "Wishin you were on RHOSLC still," which garnered a number of likes in the comment section.
