Lisa Barlow addressed recent speculation that her son Jack Barlow left his mission in Colombia after a fan spotted the 19-year-old at a T.J. Maxx in Orange County.

On the current season of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, Lisa threw a grand party celebrating the announcement of Jack’s placement in the South American country. Lisa’s co-star Heather Gay, who was not invited, shared her concern about the teenager spreading Mormonism across the globe, comparing it to a “door-to-door salesman.”

On November 13, a Redditor claimed to have spotted Jack in the United States.

“I just saw Jack Barlow at TJ Maxx/Home Goods in Tustin, CA,” wrote user @OCBrad85. “He was wearing his LDS badge and was with another missionary guy. The missionary guy was shopping, Jack was on the phone. Apparently, Jack wasn’t interested in discount shopping.”

The fan went on to say, “I’m guessing Lisa didn’t let him go to Colombia for his mission. Instead he went to Irvine/Tustin (literally one of the safest cities in the entire United States).”

Soon after, Lisa addressed the speculation on Twitter. “Hi!! ♥️♥️ Jack had to wait on his VISA so temp Spanish speaking in CA,” she wrote. “Still Colombia. Very active imaginations.”

She then responded to a different fan who explained, “They send missionaries to diff missions sometimes while waiting to send them abroad. We had one over the other night and he was here for a couple months before heading out to the Philippines. Not that odd.”

Lisa replied, “Thank you!!! His VISA was delayed ♥️.”

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season four airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
