How to Watch

After an explosive start, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City girls' trip to Vail had just as dramatic of an end when a major disagreement broke out among the ladies just as they were getting ready to fly back to Utah on a private plane in the December 5 episode.

Due to all of the tension among the group at that point, Heather Gay decided that she would rather not make the journey back to Salt Lake City with everyone else, and instead, bought her own ticket on a commercial flight back home. Whitney Rose also chose to accompany Heather on that commercial flight.

That decision left the RHOSLC cast with a lot of opinions during The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City After Show shared exclusively with Bravo Insider members during the Season of Getting.

Mary Cosby admitted that she felt "good" about going ahead with Lisa Barlow, Meredith Marks, and Jennie Nguyen on the private plane while Heather and Whitney made their own travel arrangements. "I didn't care. It didn't bother me either way," she said in the RHOSLC After Show, above. "Why are they angry? They talked about me. I didn't talk about them. So what's going on? Like, something doesn't make sense."

For Jennie, she just couldn't see why Heather and Whitney would want to spend the extra money to fly commercial when they already had a seat on a private jet. "To me, it was like, why are you wasting your money? Suck it up, and get in the private jet. I wouldn't do that," she explained in the RHOSLC After Show, adding that she believes it would have been better for Heather and Whitney to "face the problem head on" with the ladies. "If you feel like you're right, and you're gonna stand up for what's right, then stick around and prove a point."

In the RHOSLC After Show, Lisa pointed out some of the inconveniences of flying commercial that Heather and Whitney wouldn't have had to experience if they went on the private plane with the rest of the group, including the "middle seat, no elbow room, peanuts."

You can watch Heather and Whitney reflect more on their decision to fly separately from the group in the RHOSLC After Show, above, including details on their trip back home — which cost "a pretty penny" — and why it was an especially big deal for Whitney to not ride on the private plane that day.

Heather expressed her appreciation for Whitney joining her on the commercial flight after the Vail vacay in a post on Instagram on December 5, which showed the duo on their way back to Salt Lake City. "Ride or Die - I love you cuz!" Heather captioned the pic, along with Lisa's oft-quoted nickname for the pair, "#BadWeather."

Meanwhile, Meredith and Jennie showed how much the rest of the group enjoyed their private plane ride in a couple of photos on Instagram.

Now looking back on it all, would Whitney do it the same way again? The Salt Lake City Housewife revealed whether she had any regrets about flying home commercially and gave more details about her and Heather's experience in the airport during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on December 5. See what she told Andy Cohen in the below clip.
