A Salt Lake City Justice Court representative told the outlet that the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star entered her plea on June 28. The unidentified minor and Mary are both due back in court, on August 12.
As reported—Mary, 44, is facing criminal charges for providing shelter to a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
“Mary is saddened that she was dragged into another family’s domestic situation,” a rep for the reality star reportedly told E! News on August 5. “But is confident that this misunderstanding will be cleared up soon.”
Mary was first charged on April 8, according to documents obtained by People.
Details of the alleged incident remain unknown, but circulating reports allege that Mary’s only son, Robert Cosby Jr., might be mixed up in the legal drama. The Bravo show has been in production in recent months, but it’s unclear if Mary’s legal issues will be featured on the second season of the newest Bravo franchise.
Mary, who sparked lots of fan chatter after her marriage to her step-grandfather was revealed, is not the only Utah Housewife embroiled in legal drama.
Her castmate, Jen Shah, was indicted in March for running and orchestrating a telemarketing scam that targeted vulnerable people.
“Jennifer Shah, who portrays herself as a wealthy and successful businessperson on ‘reality television, and Stuart Smith, who is portrayed as Shah’s ‘first assistant,’ allegedly generated and sold ‘lead lists’ of innocent individuals for other members of their scheme to repeatedly scam,” Manhattan US Attorney Audrey Strauss said of the indictment.
In January, internet chatter alleged that Bravo originally signed Mary as a part-time cast member.
Fans noticed that Mary was missing in late-season episodes, and Instagram account @realhousewivesof SLC alleged that her original position was as a “friend” of the cast.
“Mary filmed as a “friend of” so by this point in filming, she was pretty much done. Her status was changed to full-time, so we’ll still see her on the show but not as much as we’d expect.”
Mary eventually signed on as a full-time cast member but wasn’t featured as prominently as fans expected, due to a lack of footage.
Mary, a Pentecostal First Lady, inherited her family’s empire of churches and restaurants but had to marry her late grandmother’s second husband, Robert C. Cosby Sr., in order to score the family businesses.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is currently in production. Mary and Jen Shah will return for the upcoming season alongside Lisa Barlow, Meredith Marks, Heather Gay, and Whitney Rose.
