Who is Cameron Williams? 'RHOSLC' star Lisa Barlow reveals he gave $300K to Mary Cosby
While we are still wrapping our heads around Jen Shah's arrest, there's yet another drama awaiting for the fans of Bravo's 'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City'. Fans got a sniff of the drama at Lisa Barlow's Fresh Wolf event when her friend Cameron Williams pulled Meredith Marks aside and advised her to watch her back when she's around Mary Cosby. Cameron kept it very cryptic while speaking about Mary but alluded to how he was once very close to the housewife and was a preacher at her church, but today he wants nothing to do with her.
Cameron simply stated that Mary and her husband Robert Sr. did some not-so-nice things to the people who attended their church. Meredith was pretty shaken after her exchange with Cameron and began wondering what was going on with Mary. The plot got thicker when Whitney Rose too hinted about hearing rumors about Mary. After a heated exchange with Mary, Whitney confided in Meredith how she was warned by Mary's cousin to never get in Mary's bad books or anger her. Whitney also shared that Mary's church members believed her to be God and worshipped her. This allegedly gave her the pass to treat people poorly.

Who is Cameron Williams?
Meredith continued to dwell on what people were talking about Mary and finally confronted the housewife about it. When Meredith questioned her co-star about the rumors, Mary simply brushed it off by asking Meredith which religious institution or religion is free of critics? Her response satisfied Meredith, but Lisa and Whitney didn't seem to be completely convinced by it. Meredith continued to question Lisa what she knew about Mary, finally, the housewife explained that her friend Cameron suffered from 'extreme religious trauma' while he was at Mary's church and that he also mortgaged his home and gave Mary $300,000.
We will be seeing more of Cameron and hear more details of his side of the story later on the show, but if you're curious to know more about Cameron, we got you covered. Cameron was at Lisa's event because he was on the board of Utah Foster Care. Shortly after filming the show, Cameron passed away. Lisa paid an emotional tribute to her dear friend in a touching Instagram post where she listed down all his accomplishments and reminisced about what an amazing person he was. She wrote, "his was taken the day before Cameron left to go home to celebrate his birthday in Chicago. I had no idea it would be the last time I saw Cameron. He loved building, helping, growing and has been an amazing brother to me. We love you Cameron. I asked Cameron once to send me ALL of the things he had been working on so I could help him more. This is what he sent to me. He is accomplished, kind, smart, creative- a leader and my friend: He is loved. He will be missed. Proud to call you my friend and brother. @cam.everwoke @wicame I will forever wear shades for you. 💕 Things to know about Cameron and how much he impacted us all. Our hearts, our community and this world. 💕"

Cameron's family had asked that, in lieu of flowers, to consider a contribution to the scholarship, which surpassed its goal of $25,000, raising $78,100.
