In the Oct. 26 episode of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,” Whitney Rose gets her resignation letter to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints notarized; Angie Harrington is called a liar; and Brooks Marks makes either a statement or a joke — it’s unclear.
For all the juicy details, the full recap is at sltrib.com. For the highlights, keep reading.
1. Whitney resents having to get her letter notarized • “They make it so hard to leave because if they can keep you, there’s a chance that they can reactivate you,” she says, “which means you’ll start paying 10% of your income again. I think it’s all about money and power and control. They’re not trying to save the souls of Zion. They want your 10%.”
2. Whitney wanted the church to excommunicate her when she cheated on her first husband • She says she was told she would be forgiven of all her sins if she went to the temple. “Which, based on every Mormon doctrine, everything that I’ve been taught my entire life, you should be excommunicating me on the spot,” she said.
3. John Barlow, Lisa Barlow and Whitney all call Angie a liar • Last season, Angie charged that Lisa had caused caterers to quit on her — an allegation that was proven false. This season, according to Whitney, Angie said Lisa traded sex for good Utah Jazz tickets. Angie denies she said that.
Lisa calls her a “pathological liar” and cringes when Angie hugs her on a ski outing. “This hug,” Lisa says, “is as fake as everything else about her.” And when Angie fails to corroborate Whitney’s story about the Jazz tickets, Whitney says, “this is what liars do to cover their asses.”
4. The truth is out there • Heather Gay tells her book agent, “I don’t want my Mormon friends to know that, like, I have had sex outside of marriage.” He replies, “I think they know.”
5. Brooks Marks comes out. Or maybe not • Meredith Marks’ 23-year-old son tells his parents, “I’ve actually had a boyfriend for the past two years.” But then he quickly adds, “I’m kidding.”
6. Jen Shah is mad that her trial on federal fraud charges is delayed • Or so she says: “I’m just tired of people questioning my innocence and I can’t talk about it. So I want to go to trial. I want my innocence to be proven.” She pleaded guilty in July.
7. Whitney and Heather are still fighting • Whitney is still mad at Heather for not backing up her story about the Jazz tickets. Whitney says she never asked Heather to do that, which is not true. “We’re going to have to agree to disagree,” Whitney says. Heather says, “‘Agree to disagree’ to me just means I will let you go on this crazy-ass journey, and I will be waiting for you when you come back. Because there’s no disagreement. She’s just wrong.”
8. Lisa is not a skier • “I’m not really, like, an outdoor, mountain girl,” she says. “My version of outdoors is, like, sitting on a beach with a cabana with … food service, beverage service. Maybe someone that would, like, come and bring me new towels every hour.”
