'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City': Did Jen Shah smell like a 'hospital'? Shocking secret revealed at reunion
Who knew that a friendship could end over something as trivial as 'hospital smell'
The ladies on 'Real Housewives' can fight over literally anything. When Bravo's newest offering 'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City' first premiered, one of the earliest feuds on the show was between Jen Shah and Mary Cosby. Jen was upset with Mary because her fellow housewife made a comment about her smelling like a hospital. Apparently, Jen didn't appreciate Mary's hospital smell comment and held on to it.
In the initial episodes, we saw Jen blowing up against Mary for her unwarranted comment. Jen explained that her favorite aunt was in a very critical condition and was admitted to the hospital. So, she spent the day with her aunt at the hospital, before meeting up with the ladies. Mary reportedly knew about Jen's aunt's situation and yet made a comment about the hospital which left Jen feeling hurt. So, since then Jen hasn't been able to forgive or forget what Marcy did to her.
While Mary, on the other hand, explained her side of the story. The housewife revealed that when she was younger she was admitted to a hospital, and stayed put there for a long time. So, anything related to hospitals triggers her instantly. When she felt that Jen smelt like a hospital, she was apparently just passing an observation and wasn't judging or mocking her fellow housewife for it.
But instead of peacefully resolving the issue, the ladies kept escalating it and making a mountain out of it. So, during the reunion, when the host and executive producer, Andy Cohen brought up the topic of hospital smell, Jen had some interesting responses to it. During the show, Jen declared that she was at the hospital looking after her aunt, but during the reunion, the housewife declared that she never even visited the hospital on the day she met Mary.
When Andy hears it, he jokes about the news being "headline material". Irrespective of whether Jen visited her aunt at the hospital or not, it looks like the friendship between these two housewives is beyond repair. Mary even declared that she didn't want to be friends with Jen. Who knew that a friendship could end over something as trivial as "hospital smell".
'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City' airs every Wednesday at 10/9c only on Bravo.
