Lisa Vanderpump Shares Her Thoughts On Mary Cosby’s Controversial Marriage And Compares RHOSLC To Jerry Springer!

Lisa Vanderpump shares her thoughts on Mary Cosby’s controversial marriage after learning that the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star married her step-grandfather. 

“Can you imagine knowing that the man you’re sleeping with used to shag your grandmother?” Lisa wondered during a November 24 appearance on the Comments by Bravo podcast, according to Reality Blurb. “I don’t want anything near me that’s been inside my grandmother’s vagina. I am not interested.”

“I’ve gotta watch [The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City],” she continued. “[But] it sounds more like [The Jerry Springer Show] than the Housewives.”

During last week’s episode of RHOSLC, Cosby explained the history of her relationship with her husband, Robert Cosby Sr. — who was also her late grandmother's second husband.

“I always say, 'I have beauty in all my mess.' The reality is, I'm married to grandmother's second husband, which was my step-grandfather,” she said, according to PEOPLE.

The Bravo reality star explained that when her grandmother died, her inheritance was dependent on her agreement to marry Robert Sr.

“Before she passed, she made it very clear that she wanted me to be the one to take her place in the church and inherit everything,” she said. “That came with homes, money, our church and also marrying her husband.”

If you recall, Mary clarified in the series premiere, “I am not Mormon — I'm actually Pentecostal. I am the first lady of our church.”

“Don't think it wasn't weird, because it was!” she added.

Despite the nontraditional start to their union, Mary and Robert Sr. have been married for 21 years and share a teenage son, Robert Jr.

“I did it because I trusted my grandmother,” she said. “I'm so glad I did it.”

Mary revealed that she stopped talking to her mother when she was 19 because she objected to the marriage.

“It was all bizarre. I was actually 22 when we got married. It split our church,” she said. “My mom had a fit because she wanted the church, she wanted my grandmother's place. My mom felt like she was the one that should have been marrying Robert Sr.”

Mary claimed that her relationship with her husband has evolved over the years, initially starting as a friendship before turning romantic.

“The wedding night, everything was weird,” she recalled, admitting that she did not have sex with her husband on their wedding night. “Thank goodness I was on my period.”

“After we married, I had to get to know him,” she said. “I really felt like, 'Wow, my grandmother really nailed it. If I had to pick a guy, this is what I'd pick.' ”

However, Mary told her co-star Meredith Marks that she and her husband started growing apart after their son was born, and 17 years later they've settled into a “partnership” more than a romantic relationship.

“You get in a space where you grow apart. Robert Sr., he's in love with his son, like he will do anything for him. I'm the helicopter mom. We became partners as opposed to a marriage,” she explained, according to PEOPLE.

She added, “My marriage was arranged, we have to make it work,” she said. “Leaving [is not an option].”
