Mary Cosby Shuts Down ‘Cruel’ And ‘Ridiculous’ Cult Allegations!

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Mary Cosby is shutting down claims that her church is a cult.

If you recall, allegations and accusations about Mary's life popped up online, with Reddit threads running rampant with rumors that she runs a cult and lives off of tithings given to the church by its parishioners. 

Another allegation also surfaced that she only preached for the congregation when Bravo cameras showed up. So how does Mary feel about the accusations towards her and her church? 

"Clearly I’m not gonna get on national television, be a Housewife and be in a cult," Mary told Entertainment Tonight. "Like, come on. I believe in my church."

"They've been saying that since my grandmother started at the church," she says of the cult allegation. "There's no cult. ... My church members, they know those are false allegations. Those are ridiculous. It’s the people that are looking for fault."

Audio of Mary recently surfaced online of her allegedly demanding her congregation to give more offerings but the Bravo reality star says she never takes funds from the church for personal use and insists that money stays at the church.

"That's so cruel," she says of the idea she would steal from the temple. "I feel like it's so judgmental, because I am African American and a woman and I do have an eye for finer things in life."

"I have intelligent church members and they know that was all to God," she said. "I'm so not in it for the money. Oh my goodness, I believe in what I do, I believe in what I'm saying, and I love my church and I love what they are. … Money can't fulfill that, not for me."

Mary says she's happy to provide proof that she's preached at Faith Temple Church for more than 20 years, promising she would never have filmed one of her sermons for the show just as a performance. Mary reveals where her money actually comes from and says one, she's "blessed" by generational wealth passed down by her family, and two, she and her husband own a number of businesses, including a successful printing company, which focuses on large-scale jobs, like billboards and mass production of shopping bags.

"But it's not like I just have money coming out of the walls," she shared. "These [designer] things that I have are collector pieces."
