If you’ve watched the first two minutes of the new season, you may be wondering: Who called Heather Gay in the RHOSLC Season 4 premiere and could it, possibly, be Jen Shah?
Heather Gay is one of seven cast members on Season 4 of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City—also known as RHOSLC—along with original Housewives Lisa Barlow, Meredith Marks, and Whitney Rose; new Housewives Angie Katsanevas and Monica Garcia; and Friend Mary Cosby.
During an interview on the podcast “Two Ts in a Pod” in August 2023, Whitney teased that Season 4 of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City returns to form after the exit of original cast member Jen Shah, who is incarcerated for fraud, after Season 3. “Season 4 kind of goes back to the original OG Salt Lake City roots,” Whitney said. She continued, “But we’re not fighting over you know…” to which Tamra Judge added, “someone who’s going to prison.” Whitney continued, “Having Jen gone is like a breath of fresh air.”
Whiteny also admitted that filming was “so much easier” without Jen. “I think it just felt weird not having her because she’s been an OG. We built the show with her. But I don’t think we missed her in the sense of toxicity,” she said. Whitney also teased new Housewife Monica and her dynamic with the cast. “She brought it for sure. And I think a lot of people are nervous about not having Jen,” she said. “But we brought it. It’s still everything.” Whitney went on to reveal that Monica once worked for Jen. “So I had heard about her because she worked for Jen and her name is brought up a lot on the streets,” Whitney said.
But back to who called Heather in The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 4? Read on for what we know about the mysterious RHOSLC caller.
Who called Heather Gay in The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 4 premiere?
Who called Heather Gay in The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 4 premiere? In the cold opening of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 4, Episode 1, Heather receives a mysterious phone call while in Bermuda on May 10, 2023. “Hey, what did you find out?” Heather tells the caller. “Are you kidding me right now? Shut the fuck up.” Heather continues as her voice starts to break, “I’m trembling. I cannot believe it’s her. How could she do this to us? I’m freaking the fuck out. I’m freaking the fuck out”
Only her audio could be heard as the camera shows producers scrambling to film her. The camera shows a producer knocking on Heather’s door before another tells the camera person to “just go in.” The camera person then finds Heather on the phone of the balcony of her room as Heather forces the camera person toward the exit. “You guys, seriously, no. Seriously, no. You guys, for real,” Heather says as the camera person leaves her room. The cold opening ends with Heather’s voice playing over footage of snowy mountain tops. “How did we all fall for it?” Heather says. “I don’t know who to trust anymore.”
Who called Heather in The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 4 premiere? According to Variety, the call is from The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Season 4 finale, so we won’t know for sure who called Heather until then. The most popular theory is that Jen Shah, who starred on The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City from Seasons 1 to 3, called Heather. Jen left The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City following Season 3 after she pled guilty to fraud charges and was sentenced to six and a half years in prison. Jen is currently incarcerated at Federal Prison Camp Bryan in Bryan, Texas, where Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes is also serving an 11-year sentence.
During an episode on the podcast “Two Ts in a Pod” in August 2023, Whitney Rose, another Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member, claimed that the only cast member she believed to be in touch with Jen was Heather, though she couldn’t confirm if the two had spoken since Jen went to prison. Some fans believe that it’s unlikely that Heather’s call came from Jen given that the call seemed to start right away after Heather picked up her phone. According the Federal Bureau of Prisons website, for which Federal Prison Camp Bryan is listed under, Jen most likely paid for the call so there may not have been a notice after Heather picked up the phone that the call was from Jen. “Ordinarily, the inmate pays for the calls; but in some cases the receiving party pays,” the site read.
On May 17, 2023, seven days after Heather’s call, Whitney shared a cryptic Instagram post about “personal growth” and “self love.” “The only thing that I am currently turning up for is my spirituality, personal growth and self love. Who is with me? . . #spirituality #healingjourney #intentionaljewelry #selflove #personalgrowth #spiritualawakening #rhoslc,” captioned the post.
Meredith Marks, another Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member, also shared an Instagram post from Bermuda on May 21, 2023, hinting at the “shade” she experienced during the season. “Unbothered by the shade and loving the heat,” she captioned the post.
Angie Katsanevas, who also stars on The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, shared an Instagram post on May 19, 2023, of her filming the finale. “It’s a Wrap,” she captioned the post.
