Take it with a grain of salt, of course, but those who've seen the season say it's on par with the best of the best and quickly finds its footing by midseason, where everything kind of spirals into insanity.

Can't believe there's a new "franchise" (city). IMO, the wheels are falling off the car on the established shows (NY, etc.). Bravo must have paid these Salt Lake ladies 5 figures.

Reminds me of when Mob Wives (VH1) had a franchise in Chicago. It just didn't work.

Are any of them Mormon? The show won’t make sense unless the cast includes a few church members. Remember that Learning Channel show about gay Mormon men married to women? Will there be some of them, too? This might be the only Housewives show where the women are actual housewives but only if they’re Mormon. I don’t watch any of the Housewives shows but I might give this a try.

There’s some information on a few of the Housewives in the thread linked below. Before you cunt me out for being wrong about some of the cast members — some were dropped, at least one “friend” was elevated to full Housewife status after filming started, and others were added after the initial droppings (and I do mean droppings).

I’m quoting myself, which is rude, but here’s a little taste of what we’re in for:

[quote]Miss Mary is a faith healer and "First Lady" of Faith Temple Pentecostal Church, and a friend of Jen Shah's. The church had a little scandal when the original First Lady, Rosemary "Mama" Cosby, was found dead and her daughter suspected stepfather Bishop Robert Cosby (to whom Mary is now married) was involved. Mama's body was exhumed and she was found to have died of natural causes, but the Bishop was later forced to pay almost 2 million in misappropriated funds back to Mama's kids.

This was MUCH BETTER than I expected. Yes I will keep watching. Q. Why did the masculine looking blonde get a divorce from her millionaire husband?

by Anonymousreply 5611/12/2020

They got divorced because she kept flashing her penis in the celestial room.

Seriously, she is never going to be honest about her divorce, even if she did sign on to the show as a wishy-washy FU to her ex’s family. Her version of the Howard Hughes story made it explicitly clear that she doesn’t have the stomach for what she’s gotten into.

by Anonymousreply 5711/12/2020

The whole "hospital smell" back and forth about the aunt who lost both legs is something that couldn't be made up. And then did I understand Mary to say her aversion to the hospital smell was for when she got her sweat glands removed and she nearly died? Here I thought she was going to say she had the aversion from when her grandmother died.

The other take-away I noticed is that most of their houses are nothing to write home about. Even the Shah Chalet is a dime a dozen in Park City. For the butch blonde who owns the Botox place and she claims it's worth $20 million now, her house looked very dowdy and small. I don't even think we saw Mary's house, besides her closet.

by Anonymousreply 5811/13/2020

can someone tell me why they scrapped half of what they had filmed earlier and why they re-shot with a partially different cast?

by Anonymousreply 5911/13/2020

Maybe because it’s the same production company, but all the SLC wives (minus Whitney) are giving me “early season RHONY archetypes dialled up to 11.” Jen Shah seems like an updated take on Jill Zarin - the “connectah” who lives for attention and lady grudges. Desperate to be seen as fabulous. Will have early success on the show but will self-produce herself into dangerous waters soon enough. Mary Martha has all of Ramona’s breathtakingly rudeness/light sociopathy (“what did I say??! Oh, I did? Well, I’m sorry but it’s true!!”) with a side helping of Alex McCord’s tragic “wearable art” wardrobe and off-putting marriage. I bet in ten years, Mary and her Grandpa are going to be the only ones on this show still married (though probably hiding out from the feds in Guyana). Heather is very Bethenny - the early years: “I’m a self-declared self-made underdog with a smart mouth, a chip on my shoulder and a cringey penchant for 90’s rap!” Prim Meredith with the soon to ex-husband who is mostly out of town is very first iteration Luann. The gay son will hopefully hustle her along a Luann-esque character arc narrative. And Lisa is giving me Mormon Kelly Killoren Bensimon. Smug for no good reason, late for everything, the icky 40 going on 14 affect and already playing “I don’t know her” with another cast member.

by Anonymousreply 6011/13/2020

I don’t think it was that dramatic, r59. What I’ve heard more recently is that they shot some big events early on and that’s where the list of initial list of names came from.

Some of the women in attendance may have hinted that they were going to be Housewives, just because. They’re all of the attention-seeking ilk and were probably having fun floating ideas and planting rumors. And I can’t stress how quickly rumors spread in Utah when Mormons — whether Molly, Jack, or ExMo — are involved. That Relief Society grapevine is no joke.

The whole thing is just a sloppy mess, especially some of the things Jen has said. Flying in dancers? Utah is so white that people have never seen anyone like her and assume she’s black? Sure, Jen. Some clueless person must have been feeding her lines to recite.

And then there’s Mary dying on the table while having her “odor glands” removed...

[quote]Salt Lake City and West Valley City have the largest and second largest population of Tongans of any city in the U.S., with one in four Tongan Americans living in Utah. While Salt Lake City has the fourth-largest Samoan community in the U.S., the overall proportion of NHPIs in Salt Lake City is greater than any other city in the continental U.S.3

You can watch the first one in full on YouTube. It’s now an easy formula: put some pretentious and aging hags together, throw a fake part, give them booze, and then they fight.

To be fair to Lisa (though I despise her and think she's like Rinna 2.0), I remember her from Sundance a few years ago. She introduced the panel discussion at an event I went to. No doubt she and Meredith really are convinced they rub elbows with the stars for the week that Sundance happens each January. (Sundance is tiny and it's pretty hard *not* to run into famous people there.

Whitney does seem like a bit of a snake in the grass. It seems odd to feature her father so much, so I wonder where the editing is going with him. Hopefully not another relapse. Meredith and her husband are definitely over, and probably were even before the show started. Jen Sha is clearly living above her means...there's no way her husband makes more than probably $150K/year, if that. Which explains why/how obviously that chalet isn't theirs.

R124, that tracks. No one needs x6 assistants to help you "practice" a full look for a party the next day. That doesn't happen in real life, with people who have confidence and better things to do, such as charity work or running a business. As much as I loathe Kyle Richards, 9 times outta 10 she does her own makeup and hair. The ones who have umpteen assistants flitting around have proven to be broke grifters (i.e. Dorit).

Jen is definitely petering out too quickly with being so extra and dramatic. Someone--perhaps one of her faux assistants--needs to tell her that sometimes less is more.
