Following last week’s second installment of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City reunion, the Real Housewives of Potomac star appeared on Bravo’s Chat Room, where she and co-host Porsha Williams, of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, reacted to Mary mistakenly saying her husband Robert Cosby is “white.”
“I mean, first of all, Mary, I’mma need for you to go to rehab. And I don’t even know what the rehab is. Just go,” Gizelle told her fellow Real Housewives star. “Your husband’s a Black man. Period.”
“Is he light-skinned? Yes. I’m light-skinned. I’m a Black woman. He is a Black man. Know who you married. Let’s start there,” she continued.

During part two of the RHOSLC reunion, Mary told host Andy Cohen that she prefers white men before saying that her husband is “white, I mean… lighter.” She then suggested that while one can’t go through a 22-year marriage and be happy, she’s happy about “every single Chanel” that her husband had gotten for her.
After a clip of the episode played, Gizelle wondered if Mary was only happy in her marriage “because of the Chanel bags.”
“Yes, and I agree with all of that,” Porsha replied. “And let’s also agree that you told us that your grandma told you to marry him before she died and that your mom was jealous because your grandmother wanted you to. Now we at the reunion and you prayed to God and he told you to marry your granddaddy? Uh-uh.”
According to Gizelle, she believes Mary “wanted the money” and “decided to give [her] mother the Heisman so that [she] could sneak in and marry [Robert].”
Gizelle went on to disagree with Porsha, who said viewers need “more Mary” on the show.
“I don’t want more Mary unless she figured out who she married. And it’s a Black man. Otherwise, I don’t need more Mary. I just don’t,” Gizelle admitted.
“I didn’t know one way or the other. People have asked me so many times, ‘Do you want her to come back?’ [And] you know, all of those things about whether or not she’s gonna return. And I’m like, ‘I have no say over that. I have no say who’s on the show.’ But the fact that she’s not is I think a breath of fresh air. I think we all just need to move forward. And move on and move past what happened in season five. Season five was a mess,” she shared.
The third and final installment of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season one reunion airs Wednesday, February 24, at 10/9c on Bravo.
