'RHOSLC' Star Mary Cosby Apologizes for Racist Comment About Co-Star Jen Shah

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Mary Cosby is issuing an apology.

During an episode of the hit Bravo series last Sunday (December 5), the reality star reacted to a number of allegations made about her church, including claims that she was taking money from her congregation.

When the allegations were compared to the legal issues of her co-star Jen Shah, who was arrested for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering in an alleged telemarketing scam, Mary refuted the comparison and referred to Jen as a “thug.”

“That’s horrible,” Mary said. “It’s not fair to put me with someone [like Jen]. When I think about Jen, I see heartless, I see a thug. Like, you know, those Mexican people that make all those drugs. To pit me with that?!”

She later posted an apology to social media.

“I used poor judgment in my choice of words. Please accept my apologies,” her Instagram post reads. “I was not trying to single out the Mexican culture. I am African American and I know racism first hand. I’ve lived it daily my entire life.”

She continued, “It is important to me that you hear this apology directly from me. My comment was wreckless [sic].. Unintentional. I am truly sorry!”

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.

There was recently a huge development in Jen‘s legal case. Find out more here
