Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City’s Mary Cosby Defends Marrying Her Late Grandmother’s Husband: We’re Not Blood
Season 1 of Bravo’s latest addition to the Housewives franchise, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City premieres tonight (Nov. 11) and the drama has already begun.
Mary Cosby already has viewers intrigued about her personal life, specifically her marriage. The new reality star is married to her late grandmother’s husband, Robert C. Cosby, 62, which in turn entitled her to inherit multiple successful family businesses.
In a recent interview, Mary Cosby justified her marriage and said that Robert C. Cosby is not her blood, and it was a family situation that she felt was “right.” She also adds that it is in not considered incest to her and her family, and that she stands on keeping her grandmother’s empire together.

When Mary Cosby’s grandmother Rosemary Cosby died of a heart attack in 1997, her networth from ownership of churches, properties and homes was reportedly in the millions. Mary inherited her family’s empire of churches and other properties after she married the man her grandmother left the empire to, Robert C. Cosby Sr.
Her cast member page on BravoTV.com reads:
“Mary is a Pentecostal First Lady who inherited her family’s empire of churches, restaurants and more. The caveat in her taking over the family business was that she marry her late grandmother’s second husband, Robert Cosby Sr. They have since been married for 20 years and have one teenage son together.”
