One of Lisa Barlow's Family Members Kissed John Barlow?! The Couple Tells All

From a guys' golf outing to Seth Marks' wild 49th birthday party, the January 9 episode of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City was all about the husbands. And it was during this episode that we were reminded of a little fun fact about Lisa Barlow's husband, John.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City on Peacock and the Bravo App.

While speaking with Seth's brother at the birthday party, Lisa shared that her hubby actually dated her older sister, Genia, first. Lisa noted that there wasn't anything serious between John and Genia, who is now a mom of four sons and the creative director and founder of the clothing brand She Is Like Eve. "John didn’t date my sister," Lisa later clarified on Twitter on Sunday night after this episode of RHOSLC aired. "They went on one date."

And though Lisa said in an interview during the episode that it was a little awkward when she and John first got engaged, she  shared on Twitter that, these days, "Everyone in my family loves John."

Lisa added in the tweet, "My gorgeous sister had amazing taste and I’m so glad I got to meet John through her."

John previously spilled on how he was introduced to Lisa in a video first shared exclusively with Bravo Insider members (clip above), revealing that they had met through his wife's sisters. Lisa shared that she is "one of five, and John happened to know two before me."

"Only kissed one, though," John chimed in with a laugh, before adding, "She kissed me."

In the RHOSLC series premiere, Lisa also shared that John got to know her older sister when they served in an LDS mission together.

Lisa previously showed her sister, Genia, some love in a tweet she shared on November 22. The pic features Lisa's lookalike sister posing in front of a neon sign that reads "Love That," a phrase that RHOSLC fans often hear Lisa utter on the show.

Of course, Lisa never misses an opportunity to shout out her husband of 18 years and counting, with whom she has two sons: Jack, 17, and Henry, 10. "Happy Birthday to my best friend, my whole world and my [heart]," Lisa gushed about John on Instagram on his birthday on November 16. "I love my life with you and who you are. I love you beyond."

In a December 30 Instagram post that featured a collection of photos of the couple, Lisa simply said of her husband, "He's my forever."

Now we love that.
