Mary’s religion and her familial ties to the church she inherited from her grandmother RosemaryIt has long been a puzzle to viewers. Especially after Rosemary married Rosemary’s man, a.k.a. She was her step-grandfather Robert Cosby Sr.

Ladies of RHOSLC are starting to ask questions—namely, is Mary running a cult? Lisa is particularly suspicious after one of her friends alleged that he gave the Cosbys around $300,000—which required him to mortgage his house—and later left the church because he was suffering from “extreme religious trauma.” 

It’s impossible to pin down the cult claims at one moment. The cast have discussed the issue on numerous occasions and they will continue doing so throughout the remainder of the season. 

For Mary’s part, she has fiercely denied the rumors about her and her church. “I’m not God,” she told Lisa in one episode. She said, “I worship God in me.”
