‘RHOSLC’ recap: Whitney claims Lisa spread rumors about Meredith before hot mic rant

The ladies of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” shared their thoughts on Lisa Barlow’s hot mic tirade against ex-bestie Meredith Marks during Sunday night’s second installment of the Season 2 reunion. 

While chatting with host Andy Cohen, Whitney Rose claimed Barlow, 47, called Marks, 50, a “whore” who “f—ked half of New York” well before the angry rant was caught on camera.

“Since I’m a pot stirrer — if the shoe fits, wear it — she’s told people before this even filmed exactly that,” Rose, 35, alleged.

“I’m sure she did,” an exasperated Marks replied. 

Meanwhile, Barlow vehemently denied Rose’s accusation. 

“I did not, I did not, I did not!” the Vida Tequila CEO exclaimed before addressing Marks directly. “I have never talked about your marriage. I have never talked about you before that rant and I’m sorry it was caught on audio.”

In her diatribe, Barlow not only called the jewelry designer a “whore,” but also claimed she cheated on husband Seth Marks. Barlow’s harsh remarks about Meredith came after a contentious group dinner, during which Meredith’s friendships with Barlow and Mary Cosby, 49, were compared.

“Fake Meredith is a piece of s—t … f—k you! That f—king piece of s–t garbage whore. I f—king hate her,” spewed Barlow, who felt Meredith had shown more loyalty to Cosby, a friend of far fewer years. “[Meredith’s] a whore.”

At the reunion, Meredith said that she was appalled by Barlow’s outburst.

Marks said she was appalled by the “venom” in Barlow’s rant, which also included allegations of marital infidelity.

“The venom and the hatred that the delivery it came with is what resonated. I couldn’t even sit and watch it. I’d stop it,” she said. “It took me about an hour to get through it. I was sick, utterly sick.”

Barlow, who admitted she was in a “blind rage” during the rant, clarified that she doesn’t believe Meredith “f—ked half of New York.” 

“Do I think you’ve fucked 4.2 million people? No,” Barlow said, to which Meredith quipped back, “I’ve slept with fewer people than I have fingers, OK? So there you go. New York City is pretty large.” 

Barlow repeatedly apologized to Meredith throughout the latest “RHOSLC” reunion episode, but it was her final sorry that stood out the most. 

“I am beyond sorry,” Barlow began, also acknowledging that her verbal attack hurt Meredith’s husband and their adult children, Reed, Chloe and Brooks. 

Seemingly in an attempt to justify her words, Barlow added, “Somebody had just told me that you were making fun of my renovation and stuff and I was just like upset … You said I live in a s—tty house.”

A confused Meredith insisted she “didn’t talk about” Barlow’s house in any capacity, but was nonetheless miffed that the alleged insult would incite such hateful commentary from Barlow. 

“OK, you have an ugly house so you should rip my character to shreds,” said Meredith, who left the reunion couch to walk away from Barlow during a break from filming. “OK. wonderful.”

Part three of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” Season 2 reunion airs Sunday, March 13 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
