Mary Cosby’s Husband Robert Cosby Sr. Sets The Record Straight On Their Marriage At ‘RHOSLC’ Season 1 Reunion; Says ‘Grandfather F—er’ Comment Was ‘Very Offensive’

Mary Cosby's husband Robert Cosby Sr. is finally speaking up about their controversial marriage during Part 3 of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 1 reunion, which aired on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.

During the reunion, host Andy Cohen asked Robert, who appeared virtually via video chat, if there was anything he wanted to address about the unconventional start to his marriage with Mary, given the fact that he was her late grandmother's second husband. 

“I see all that grandfather junk,” Robert said at the reunion, according to Bravo's The Daily Dish. “It's stupid.”

He said about Jen Shah's controversial “grandfather f---er” comment.

Mary chimed in, “He's still upset. He's not as strong as me.”

Robert then noted that he was “hesitant” for Mary to join the Bravo hit reality series before setting the record straight on their marriage. “One thing that they don't understand, I don't know, they think we got married just for the money, everything was money, money, money. It's not like that,” he said. “The other thing is, this granddaddy junk, it's stupid. I was 22 years old when I married Mama [Mary's grandmother, Rosemary Cosby]. Whose granddaddy was I? I wasn't even anybody's daddy yet. I don't like that. I don't like that at all. That's very offensive. If somebody says that, that's hurtful. But I'm used to it. I don't like people messing with my wife at all.”

Jen apologized to the Cosbys, admitting that she was out of line. Then, Robert and Jen's husband Sharrieff Shah shared a special moment as the two came to an understanding.

“When I saw what my wife said and it came on, I said, 'Baby, that's unacceptable.' I don't care what she may have said in that moment, and she knows this. I said, 'You can't talk about people's marriages, you don't talk about what they do, that was unacceptable.' And my wife knows that I was upset and hurt for that. I said, 'We can't degenerate to that kind of talk, not that,'” Sharrieff told Robert at the reunion. “And so, that's what it was for me, and I apologize, brother, I'm sorry. That's not my wife, that was in the heat of the moment, and that's not an excuse. God willing, she'll be better going forward because I believe in her. And hopefully, she gets a chance to at least demonstrate who she really is, God willing.”

Robert said that he accepted Sharrieff's apology, and Andy said, “I see a double date in the future.”

During the episode, Robert praised Mary, calling her a “great mother” to their son, Robert Jr., and a great wife” while also praising their 22-year marriage. “Mary is a great mother and a great wife. I love her,” he shared. “I understand we've had our ups and downs. Hey, you've been married 22 years, how in the world can you not get along?”

When Andy asked what kind of first lady Mary is at their church, Robert replied, “The best, but she's more than a first lady. Really, she's a co-pastor, she's my equal.”

That sentiment made Mary get emotional “because nobody knows me better,” she said at the reunion. “For him to say I was his equal just touched me,” she shared.
