Every bit of tea that you NEED TO KNOW about the legal drama between RHOSLC stars Monica Garcia and Heather Gay.
It’s no secret that RHOSLC co-stars Monica Garcia and Heather Gay are suing each other, but now the plot has thickened in a major way. Plus, there’s some pipping hot tea about the RHOSLC newbie that must be discussed.
Let’s take a stroll back to September, when season 4 of RHOSLC first premiered on Bravo. In the premiere episode of season 4, RHOSLC fans saw Heather Gay learn some shocking news during the cast trip to Bermuda. The news Heather has received is so surprising that she pushes the Bravo cameras out of her room as she attempts to wrap her head around what she’s just learned.
It turns out that the bit of news Heather Gay received was about Monica Garcia and the lawsuit.
The lawsuit between Heather’s Beauty Lab + Laser company and Monica stems from services in December 2019.
In August, Heather Gay’s company, Beauty Lab + Laser, filed a lawsuit against RHOSLC newbie Monica Garcia for “breach of contract and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.”
Monica fired back with a countersuit for alleged “botched” procedures on her nose and lips.
.However, Heather didn’t file the lawsuit against Monica until August 2023. Why might you ask? Well, it turns out Heather didn’t know that the Monica that Beauty Lab + Laser was going after for unpaid services was the same Monica who joined the season 4 cast of RHOSLC until May 2023 during the cast trip to Bermuda.
During the season 4 cast trip to Bermuda, Heather learned that Monica Garcia was the same Monica who had an open tab with Beauty Lab + Laser.
According to the Twitter account @RealityTVHotTea, Beauty Lab + Laser didn’t know that the Monica in question was Monica Garcia because she used a different last name.
For her services with Beauty Lab + Laser, the RHOSLC newbie used the name Monica Fowler, not Monica Garcia.
Amid the lawsuit, the RHOSLC cast has rallied around Heather.
An unidentified source wrote:
“The lies, the lies, the lies are flying around Salt Lake City from this broke snowflake who allegedly mysteriously got a lot of money after the main snowflake lost her 60k uninsured piece! Want more tea! Allegedly ALL the snowflakes are sure that the broke snowflake stole the piece, one of the many reasons why no one wants her on the show anymore! But the broek snowflake will probably blame her mom.”
Naturally, RHOSLC fans have much to say about all of this.
“I am telling you, there is something not right there – has not been from the beginning,” podcast host Kate Casey commented.
“The woman openly admitted to sleeping with her married brother-in-law. People tell you who they are,” one fan wrote.
“Monica studied at the school of Jen Shah,” a second fan quipped.
“And now the mother’s name change comment makes sense,” a third fan commented.
“Monica pulling grifting stunts. Jen Shah 2.0,” another fan wrote.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 4 airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
