Real Housewives Star Mary Cosby Responds to Allegations of Using Racial Slur Against Co-Star's Son

Mary Cosby, a star of the reality TV show "The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City," has responded to allegations that she used the R-word slur against her co-star Lisa Barlow's 12-year-old son during a heated argument. The incident reportedly occurred during the filming of Season 5 and has sparked outrage among the cast and viewers.

According to an insider, the other Housewives were "very grossed out" by Cosby's use of the offensive word, especially towards a child. "Mary should know better than to say something like that, especially about a kid. It's so inappropriate," the source stated. The incident has also reportedly upset Barlow's husband and son.

Cosby, 51, took to Instagram on Monday to share a cryptic message, posting a photo of her own son, Robert Cosby Jr., 20, whom she shares with her stepgrandfather-turned-husband. While not directly addressing the allegations, Cosby's post suggested there may be more to the story, stating "There are two sides to every story."

Why this matters: The use of racial slurs and offensive language, especially towards children, is a serious issue that goes beyond reality TV drama. Incidents like this highlight the need for greater awareness, sensitivity, and accountability in both personal interactions and public platforms.

This is not the first time Cosby has faced controversy over her comments. She previously had to apologize for referring to another cast member as a "Mexican thug" and calling another Housewife "in-bred." Despite the tension, Radar Online reports that Cosby and Barlow are currently in a "good" place and are filming together in Mexico for a cast trip. However, the situation has raised concerns about Cosby's behavior and the potential consequences she may face for using such an inappropriate slur towards a child.
