Meredith Marks Opens Up About Joining The ‘RHOSLC’ And Explains Why It’s Important The Show Will Highlight “A Level Of Diversity” Aside From The “Mormon Lifestyle”; Says “You Will See We Have Ethnic Diversity, Religious Diversity On The Show”

Meredith Marks is opening up about joining The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. Marks, who is a successful jewelry designer, explains why it's important to highlight the show's diversity.

"Salt Lake City, it's viewed basically as the hub for the Mormon community and that's a fair statement, but there's a lot more to Salt Lake City than just being the center for Mormons," she told Digital Spy. "Obviously, the Mormon lifestyle does play a big role. There are these [incorrect] views that everyone is just a polygamist and doesn't drink. That's just not true."

"Salt Lake actually does have a level of diversity there. You will see we have ethnic diversity, religious diversity on the show. We are all very different from one another, just in terms of personality and internal wiring. We're all very different."

Meredith acknowledged that the LDS Church – and religion in general – plays a significant role in the lives of most of the cast members, which will play out over the course of the season.

"Religion plays a big role in Utah – it does," she acknowledged. "It would be like saying religion can play a role in Jerusalem. It plays a big role in Utah. It is part of it. You'll see how it all unfolds."
