Everyone was talking about Heather Gay’s black eye The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 3 and remains a hot topic in part one of the reunion. After a night of drinking in San Diego, Heather woke up with a black eye. Though she claimed she didn’t know how she got it at the time, Heather cleared the air during the conversation ROSLC goodbye part one Find out once and for all how Heather got the black eye.
As she revealed during the ROSLC At the Season 3 reunion, Heather has no memory of getting the black eye in San Diego. “I have no idea how it happened,” she told Andy Cohen.
An investigation was launched because Heather feared something sinister had happened that night. “I woke up scared,” Heather said. However, that investigation turned up nothing, and as Cohen pointed out, there was no additional footage from that night either.
Waking up with the black eye, Heather admitted she knew what happened but didn’t want to speak to her co-stars about it. When asked why she lied about knowing what happened, Heather told Cohen:
A frustrated Lisa Barlow stepped in to chide Heather for not telling the truth. “It affected the people on production who were with us late, and then it seems like they did it to you,” Lisa said during the reunion. Heather took full responsibility for her actions.
Heather said she didn’t reveal the true cause of her black eye because the situation was so “humiliating.” “I don’t want to faint,” she explained. “I don’t want to get drunk, pass out, and not remember it — it’s terrifying.”
She continued, “I feel very ashamed of Mormons when I drink. Now it’s public and I wake up with no friend in a world and a huge black eye. I woke up in a very stressful situation… with so much shame. There was no way to hide it and I got down to my thing, which is humor.”
Heather admitted she felt “guilt and shame” because she blacked out and couldn’t explain what happened. She never wanted to involve anyone in the production or her castmates in the process. The last thing she remembers from that night is showing her boobs and saying, “Marilyn [Monroe] died naked.”
Heather showed up in San Diego after learning Whitney Rose had put her on a “friendship break.” The next morning, Heather woke up with a horrible black eye and told everyone she didn’t know what happened.
“I just hope it goes away,” Heather said on the Bravo series episode “Unfashionable Behavior,” which previously portrayed Jen as the culprit. “I just don’t want to talk about it.” Now we know that’s not the case.
Tune in next week to hear more of the ROSLC to water. Part two of the reunion will air on February 1st.
