The news about Mary Cosby not showing up for the RHOSLC reunion has been all over the Internet the past few days and many have been wondering why I have not been reporting on it. I’m not trying to be first. I’m trying to get all the tea. As my longtime followers know, I often do not just repeat what other sites report when I have a source close to the situation. I knew it was a fact that she did not attend, but I wanted to pump my source for how exactly it all went down and why. As much as I wish my exclusive source was on speed dial 24/7 and at my beck and call, that is not the case. I send a polite email and wait until they have a chance to answer.
Mary Cosby’s No Show Is Nothing Like Erika Jayne Showing Up
Today, I have answers. But before we get to that, there is something else that has been bothering me about this situation. A common theme on the Internet is that if Erika Jayne could show up for the reunion, why couldn’t Mary Cosby? Once more with feeling. I am the only site on the Internet that knows how much Erika Girardi got paid to appear last season. It was $68,000 an episode. That was not a pay increase. It was her regular season increase. Next season she will make a five percent increase (as they all do) bumping her to $71,400. So, there was no way she was going to leave $272,000 on the table and lose her job by skipping the reunion. In fact she made sure to give enough for four episodes.
What Do The RHOSLC Make Per Episode?
On the other hand, Mary Cosby was making just $6,000 and episode. So it was not worth it for her to be exposed as a racist and a cult leader and have to defend those defenseless allegations on national TV. She left less than $20K on the table to avoid public humiliation. I don’t blame her for that decision. Here is a direct quote from my source,
“She did not show and her attorney told Shed Media that she wants to receive her final paychecks ASAP, seemingly signaling the end to her participation on the series. People at both the network and production company (level) believe she is upset about a bad edit. So they are going to wire her $6,000 per episode to her and leave her be. Quote from exec: “Bye, Mary!”
