Where is Mary Cosby now? 'RHOSLC' alum celebrates after criminal charges of sheltering runaway dropped
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH: Ever since 'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City' first premiered, all eyes were on Mary Cosby. The eccentric and ditzy housewife garnered a lot of attention due to her marriage to her step-grandfather Robert Cosby Sr. While season one of the Bravo show focused on her marriage and family, the second season took a dark turn with rumors of the housewife running a cult doing the rounds.
As her fellow housewives began questioning whether Mary was using her church as a front to run her cult, the housewife made the bold decision to ditch the show cold turkey by not showing up for the reunion. She eventually announced that she wouldn't be returning to the show. With 'RHOSLC' all set to return for season 3, we couldn't help but wonder about Mary and what she has been up to since her exit from the reality show. As it turns out the former housewife seems to be in a celebratory mood after criminal charges against her for sheltering a runaway were recently dropped.
Where is Mary Cosby now?
On Sunday, September 18, 2022, Mary took to her Instagram to share the news of criminal charges against her being dropped, reminding her followers that her primary goal in life is to please God. She shared a screenshot of a news clipping announcing that the charge against her had been dropped and a response to that post from a fan account who claimed that Mary had "been nothing but vindicated". "Vindicated about Jen Shah, Jennie, and now her charges are dropped,' they wrote. 'Plus she's never been charged with a crime involving her church like the #rhoslc women wanted to happen. Don't come for the queen because god is on her side," reads the comment.
Mary captioned the picture with, "I don't live my life to please people I live my life to please God,' she wrote, adding a heart and prayer hands emojis. 'To the people who are committed believing lies! Truth will always Stand. Love you guys!! So much!! Don't worry about haters let them worry about you." Interestingly enough 'RHOSLC' star Meredith Marks not only liked the post but also left heart emojis in the comment section to show her support for Mary.
Back in 2021, Mary was charged with two counts of misdemeanor for unlawfully providing shelter to a runaway and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She entered a plea of not guilty. The details surrounding the charges were kept private. Mary's representative told Daily Beast, "Mary is saddened that she was dragged into another family’s domestic situation but is confident that this misunderstanding will be cleared up soon.”
Mary's lawyer pointed out how although the charges "sound sinister", in reality, it was just a misunderstanding n the part of Mary Cosby's son Robert Cosby Jr's girlfriend's mom. The girl's mother called the police after her daughter went to Mary's home to spend time with Robert against her parents' wishes.
"Rather than the Salt Lake City Department focusing on real crime, they’re turning into the relationship police," Robert's attorney Clayton Simms told Fox 13. "The basis of this case is just a misunderstanding. We think there’s absolutely no merit to the case." With all the charges against her dropped, Mary is busy living her best life and continues to post snippets of it on her social media accounts.
'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City' Season 3 premieres on Wednesday, September 28, 2022, at 9/8c on Bravo.
