The new season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is coming soon. The third season of the Utah-based reality series will premiere Wednesday, September 28th 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 will all return this season, as will former “guest” Angie Harrington, who has again been named “Girlfriend of.” Status.
In addition, newcomers Angie Katsanevas and Danna Bui-Negeret will be cast members for the new season.
Here’s what you need to know:
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast chose an icy mauve and rose theme for their official cast photos. All the stars posted photos to Instagram to give a little taste of their looks as they posed against a snowy backdrop for their season-opening looks. Several stars rocked sparkling mauve dresses and others went with dresses in coordinating shades of pink, pink and champagne.
In addition to the OGs, Harrington posted her promo picture, which showed her in a pink feathered dress, as did Kastaneves, who wore a pink glittery number. She joins the show as Shah’s girlfriend.
Danna Bui-Negrete, who joined the cast as Heather Gay’s girlfriend, appeared in a light pink toga-style dress in a cast photo shared on her social media page.
The coordinated dresses are a far cry from the Season 2 reunion looks earlier this year. The group’s flashy looks were dubbed cheesy 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 past storylines will continue in the new season, including more about Barlow’s hot-mic moment targeting Meredith Marks. The longtime friends’ aftermath seems to have spilled over into the new season, but another fight gets physical as fans watch distant relatives Gay and Rose get going in the trailer.
A storyline about Gay’s upcoming memoir, Bad Mormon, will also appear in the new season, as will Whitney Rose’s look back at her past.
In addition, Shah’s ongoing legal issues are heavily addressed in the new season. According to her BravoTV.com bio, newcomer Bui-Negrete “gets caught up in the group’s drama” this season after she “blighted a rumor about Jen.”
In the trailer, the newcomer can even be seen yelling at Shah, telling her, “Don’t go into my fucking mom!”
“If I were you I’d be real nice right now, especially if you want some money in your damn books,” the newcomer warns the RHOSLC veteran.
In July, Shah entered a guilty plea in a federal fraud and money laundering case filed against her telemarketing company. The businesswoman’s plea deal includes 11 to 14 years in prison and $9.5 million in damages. According to Page Six, Shah will be sentenced in November.
