The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City premiere is right around the corner, but if you can’t wait until November 11 to see what the series has in store, Andy Cohen has you covered. During an interview on PeopleTV’s Reality Check with host (and his assistant), Daryn Carp, Andy shared some exciting details about RHOSLC.
“It’s going to be the next hot franchise. I think people are going to be really surprised by a few of the women, and I just think it’s so interesting,” Andy teased before explaining the show’s connection to the Mormon church.
“First of all, I love a ski community, and I’ve always been interested in the Mormon church and wanted a way in,” he said. “We developed a show at Bravo years ago that was not a Housewives that was set with a lot of Mormons and wound up falling through. So I’m really glad we’ve got some active Mormons, we’ve got some lapsed Mormons, but Mormonism is a character and through line in the show.”
“It’s really interesting,” he continued. “Everyone has a different relationship to the religion that’s on the show, and I’m glad that it’s a diverse show. I think people are going to be really interested in Mary Cosby, and in Heather. They’re all really interesting, the women.”
There’s one other question Andy answered about the series: whether or not there will be alcohol involved.
“Anyone in the current community of Mormonism cannot drink, right? So they’re completely sober for this season?” Daryn asked.
“They’re drinking, Daryn,” Andy confirmed.
