‘RHOSLC’: Mary Cosby Calls Heather Gay a ‘Racist’ in Shocking Instagram Post

A storm is taking over The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City as the drama between the housewives takes over social media. The Bravo reality series had already been getting a lot of attention as season 2 films due to Jen Shah being indicted for committing fraud. However, the new debacle involves Heather Gay and Mary Cosby after the latter posted an Instagram accusing the former of being a “racist.”

Why did Mary Cosby block Heather Gay on Instagram?

The feud between Cosby and Gay seemingly started after fans noticed that the former had blocked the latter from Instagram. Getting questioned about their nascent disagreement prompted Cosby to post a statement regarding the status of her friendship with Gay. Cosby created a new post on her Instagram feed with a graphic explaining why she had blocked Gay on the digital platform.

“If you want to know why I blocked Heather Gay is because heather Gay is a racist!” the photo read. “She admitted and owned it and she knows it! LET’S SPEAK TRUTH!!”

In the caption of the post, Cosby added, “If you want my Truth ask me! I never did anything to #heather.. She’s a #karen. I don’t tolerate haters.”

Cosby’s post was deleted but it was reposted by Queens of Bravo who also shared a video. The clip shows Gay in an interview being asked why Cosby had blocked her, to which she answered, “Basically, I mean, I told her to f—- off, and she blocked me.”

Although Gay is seemingly not in a good place with Cosby, she has mended things with Shah. The latter and Gay fell out during the first season of the show due to them growing apart. However, in the middle of all the legal drama, Shah is facing, Gay says that she’s supporting her friend. Many fans were concerned that the show would not tackle Shah’s indictment but Gay confirmed Bravo cameras have been rolling.

“It does feel like we’re 10 years into [the show], but we’re only [in the] second season, and everything plays out in real-time,” Gay stated during an appearance on the So Bad It’s Good with Ryan Bailey podcast. “We are in it with her. We are going through it as friends, [and] as people who for the first time in [our] lives are public figures. And for the first time in [our] lives, we have to answer to not only [our] family and friends, but to a worldwide audience, and to also see [our] trials and struggles played out and subject to public opinion.”

“It is all the five horsemen of drama. You’ve got intrigue, and crime, and passion, and loyalty, and friendships all on the backdrop of Salt Lake City, Utah,” Gay added.
