Jennie Nguyen had some major explaining to do during part one of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 2 reunion.
At the reunion, the now-disgraced RHOSLC star responded to claims she used a “blaccent” while interacting with co-star Mary Cosby throughout season 2.
“I don’t see I have a black accent. I grew up in Long Beach, California. It shaped who I am. That’s where I get my accent, and I don’t understand why people look at me and say, ‘When I talk to Mary, I have a black accent.’ I don’t see that,” Jennie said.
She then asked her co-stars Meredith Marks, Lisa Barlow, Jen Shah, Heather Gay, and Whitney Rose if they thought she used a “blaccent,” however none of them responded to her inquiry.
This controversial topic came to light after reunion host Andy Cohen read a fan question that slammed Jennie’s suspicious behavior.
“We all agree that Mary was wrong for mocking your accent,” the fan’s comment read, also acknowledging Mary’s prior racist actions.
The fan continued, “When are you going to address, take accountability and apologize for the fact that you constantly use a blaccent? You roll your neck, and you wag your finger and other stereotypical depictions of black women when you talk to or about Mary?”
Jennie replied, “I have an accent. Whatever comes out comes out.”
Mary, on the other hand, didn’t get to voice her opinion on the subject as she chose to skip the season 2 reunion.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
