Mary Cosby has continued to deny that she is running a cult and demanding tithes from her cult members to support her extravagant (and rather bizarre) lifestyle. She’s defended herself on WWHL and other Entertainment sites quite vigorous. Because, you know, she is a woman of God. I would suggest she dust off her Bible then. She can skip the Old Testament, since it was replaced by the New Testament. That way she can start with Matthew and The Sermon On The Mount. Then, she can read this a few times until she gets it. Matthew 19:24, “And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” This is why I don’t go to megachurches with pastors that drive Lamborghinis.
Former Members of Mary Cosby’s Own Congregation
Even Mary Cosby’s own congregation say they left because it was an abusive cult. Here is a brief excerpt from a lengthy and eye-opening post on The Daily Beast that you really need to click on to read the whole thing.
The Daily Beast spoke with seven former Faith Temple church members, six who agree with claims that Cosby has been operating her church like a “cult”—alleging she refers to herself as God, encourages members to work at her family’s various businesses for free or minimum wage, berates congregation members from the podium, and instills the fear that if anyone ever leaves Faith Temple for another church, they will be condemned to hell.
Cosby’s own uncle Ernest Walton believes Cosby is running a “cult,” saying his mother would be disappointed. “I think it’s an abomination,” he says. “Everything’s coming out into the light now and everything’s coming down.”
A second former male member, who requested to have his name withheld and was at the church for 25 years before leaving in around 2018, says Williams was spot on with what he told Barlow. “It’s cultish what they’ve done,” he says. “It’s the mental manipulation to try to get people to believe that she has power to either take them to heaven or condemn them to hell.”
“It’s not a joke,” says Abby, a former member raised in the church who left age 22 in the late 1990s, and requested to have her full name withheld because a close relative is still an active member. “She’s got these people terrified. That woman is the most evil thing that ever walked this Earth. You have no idea, all those smiles and shit—that is not real.”
Whitney Rose Is Now In Mary Cosby’s Crosshairs
Whitney Rose Has been Mary Cosby’s biggest support on the show. She took her dad to Mary’s church and was very reluctant to speak on the subject of Mary’s cult. However, this season is about to take the spotlight off of Jen Shah getting ready for prison and focus at least somewhat on Mary’s cult. Didn’t she say on WWHL that if she were running a cult she wouldn’t be on a housewives show? Yeah, tell that to Teresa Giudice, Erika Girardi, Tom Girardi, Jen Shah and… I feel like I am forgetting other Felons By Bravo. Her day is coming. Anyway, Whitney Rose is like a little Bambi that seems like an easy target for Mary’s wrath.
So when Whitney recently said that Mary is no longer speaking to her because she had questions about her cult, Mary lost her mind on Twitter and swung at he with a Twitter baseball bat.
A few examples are below. I missed it all in real time and thanks to the person who alerted me in pretty much real time. Again, my email inbox is a HOT MESS. I am the messiest person in the world. But I do have the NEED to clear out my emails ever day, because work, but I’ve been horrible at it lately.
The Tweets A Hit Dog Will Howl
Much like Erika Jayne, Mary has taken the attack route.
Again, I would like to point out that Whitney Rose has been her closest ally on the show. Now she is calling her a racist? Shame on her.
“Whitney Rose is being so hungry with her lying self .. She knows she is not that girl who puts a fire out,” she wrote. “Yes she’s racist I said it racist! Like her cousin.. she’s talking like she knows me .. she has no backbone she’s not real so fake! I can’t!”
“You are such a liar Whitney Rose ! You know you don’t talk to me! Whitney Rose with your bobble head! Humble yourself!
AND HUMBLE HERSELF? THIS BITCH IS THE ONE GOING AROUND SAYING SHE IS GOD ACCORDING TO HER OWN CULT MEMBERS!
Again, I missed all of this on Twitter because of some shows I watch that I can’t avoid spoilers on if I don’t go until I watch. So these are probably out of order but you get the gist.
So are you ready to have an alleged cult leader and an alleged Ponzi scammer one RHOSLC? It’s only season two! WTF ELSE CAN HAPPEN? 🙂
