Meredith Marks enrolls ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ Season 3 Preview Even in the heyday of their friendship, she “never quite trusted” former BFF Lisa Barlow.
Marks, now 50, explains in an exclusive new interview with Page Six why he hasn’t been able to confidently confide in Barlow, 47, through years of contracts.
“There were red flags. There was a reason I was worried about confiding in her,” says the jewelry designer.
Marks said, “Ask the way [Barlow] I talked about other people,” consistently irritated her.
She eventually walked away from the friendship after she herself was targeted Barlow’s Infamous ‘RHOSLC’ Season 2 Explosion.
In a moment of anger, the Vida Tequila founder threw a series of insults at Meredith. and also attacked her husband Seth Marks’ career and their “possessed fake royal family.”
“From that moment on, watching it play out, can’t you understand what happened to justify your actions of spewing hate and lies about me?” urged fans to stop calling it a “hot Mike rant.”
“Let’s be clear it wasn’t a hot mic. I saw her take the mic off. So I don’t know why everyone keeps doing it. I would rather call it a rant.” I call it a childish tantrum,” she said, admitting that it “eventually” ended the friendship, and both women knew it.
Barlow tried to apologize to Meredith last season, but it looks like Meredith needed more time to recover from the brutal riot.
“Accepting an apology is so easy. What do you do when you receive a pure apology with no explanation or string? You have no choice but to accept and forgive,” she told Page Six.
“The question is always, ‘How do you move forward from there?’ If you don’t understand why someone does something that hurts you, there’s no guarantee it won’t happen again. It’s very complicated and makes it difficult to move beyond the overall surface-level relationship.”
Barlow records: she’s not proud Or perhaps inspired by what she perceived to be Meredith’s loyalty to Barlow’s former enemy Mary Cosby. Controversial preacher, 49, left the series Earlier this year after skipping the Season 2 reunion.
‘Salt Lake City’ Season 3 is full of new dynamics. Notably, Barlow forms a close bond with former enemy Whitney Her Rose and Meredith does the same with her Jen Her Shah.
Minutes after the premiere, Meredith told the 48-year-old Shah that rumors of Barlow’s business and marriage were ringing in the snow-capped mountains of Utah.
“I said there were rumors.
“It was trying to find out if there was a reason Lisa treated me the way she was, so I could figure it out and move on. I said I don’t know, but it doesn’t matter,” she elaborates.
“I’m trying to figure out, is there something bigger going on here? And yes, there are rumors out there. It’s not that big of a deal. Rumors are rumors.”
“The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” Season 3 premieres on Wednesday, September 1. 28th at 9pm ET on Bravo.
