The new season of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” is coming. The third season of the Utah-set reality series premieres Wednesday, September 28 on Bravo and will feature five original stars and a few new faces.
According to BravoTV.com, original stars Heather Gay, Lisa Barlow, Meredith Marks, Whitney Rose and Jen Shah are all returning this season, as well as former “guest” Angie Harrington, who has been upgraded once again to “friend of” state.
In addition, newcomers Angie Katsanevas and Danna Bui-Negeret are the cast for the new season.
Here’s what you need to know:
The cast members of “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” went for their official cast photos with an icy purple and pink theme. All the stars posted photos to Instagram to give a taste of their looks as they posed amid a snowy backdrop for their season opening. Several stars wore sparkly mauve dresses and others went with dresses in coordinating pinks, roses and champagne tones.
Next to the OGs, Harrington posted her promo photo of her wearing a pink feathered dress, just like Kastaneves, who sported a pink sparkly number. She joins the show as a friend of Shah’s.
Danna Bui-Negrete, who joined the cast as girlfriend of Heather Gay’s, appeared in a bright pink toga-style dress in a cast photo she shared on her social media page.
The coordinating dresses are a far cry from the season 2 reunion looks earlier this year. The group’s flashy looks were labeled tacky by some fans, with one critic comparing the ladies’ looks to a “millennial prom,” according to Page Six.
Bravo recently released the RHOSLC Season 3 trailer, which teased that several previous storylines will continue in the new season, including more about Barlow’s hot-mic moment focusing on Meredith Marks. The fallout from the old friends seems to have permeated the new season, but another fight turns physical when fans see distant relatives Gay and Rose in the trailer.
A storyline about Gay’s upcoming memoir, “Bad Mormon,” will also be featured in the new season, as will Whitney Rose’s look back at her past.
In addition, Shah’s ongoing legal issues will be heavily addressed in the new season. According to her BravoTV.com bio, newcomer Bui-Negrete will “get caught up in the drama of the group” this season after she “uncovered a rumor about Jen.”
In the trailer, the rookie is even seen yelling at Shah and telling her, “Don’t come in my mom f****ing face!”
“If I were you, I’d be really nice right now, especially if you want some money in your damn books,” the newcomer warns the RHOSLC veteran.
In July, Shah pleaded guilty to a federal wire fraud and money laundering lawsuit against her telemarketing company. The businesswoman’s plea deal calls for 11 to 14 years in prison and $9.5 million in restitution. According to Page Six, Shah will be sentenced in November.
