In addition to clarifying her role in the account, Monica also brought a burn book to address some of the other drama from the season, and fellow cast members Heather Gay, Meredith Marks, Whitney Rose, Lisa Barlow, and Angie Katsanevas opened up about whether they feel like they can trust her in the future.

When asked to explain her involvement in the account, Monica told host Andy Cohen and the rest of the ladies that she was simply "part of that page."

"I did not set up the account, I didn't name the account, or open the account," she continued. 

Though Monica acknowledged that she posted on the account, she said that she was not behind every single post. She also shared her perspective on the nature of the posts on the page. "I honestly feel like that page did not come for any of them," Monica said, referring to the other ladies in the Season 4 cast. 

Later on in the reunion, Andy asked if Monica had anything else to say about the account. 

"I mean, I think there's a ton that's been misunderstood," she said. However, when Andy asked her if she wanted to share anything else, Monica replied, "No."

Why Monica Garcia Brought a "Burn Book" to the RHOSLC Reunion

In addition to talking about her Instagram activity, Monica brought a pink Mean Girls-inspired burn book to the reunion set. Though the original book featured gossip and rumors, Monica said that her book was "full of receipts" about what she posted on the Reality Von Tease page. 

She also said that some of the posts included "positive things about the women."

"We did try and support them; We did post nice things," Monica said, later noting that she also did "genuinely feel bad" about her participation in the account. 

The RHOSLC Ladies Reveal if They Can Move Forward with Monica Garcia

Before the reunion officially concluded, Andy asked the snowflake holders if they saw a path forward with Monica. 

"I appreciate what you said, Monica," Heather shared. "I think that you're right, but the way that you handled it and the way that it affected me, and the way that you came in today, it hurt me more. And it didn't resolve anything for me. It made it clearer to me, and more real to me, about my own boundaries, and how far I've come; I mean, collectively, how far we've all come."

Whitney, for her part, noted that it would be difficult for her to move on because of her childhood trauma. 

"I have to be very careful and protect boundaries I've put up with relationships that are not safe in my life," she explained. "And there has to be a clear line of trust for me to be able to move forward. And, right now, I think I'm even more confused leaving the reunion... I can't put myself in that situation right now."

Meredith agreed, adding, "I think it's very problematic to move forward in a situation where trust has been completely decimated.

Lisa and Heather noted that there was "nothing" that Monica could have said at the reunion to immediately fix things.
