Fraud charges, winter sports, a potential cult, and Jen Shah doing the worm—the trailer for the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 2 has it all. Add to that a brand new cast member, and you have what promises to be the most explosive Real Housewives season the franchise has seen since Denise Richards left RHOBH.
Bravo’s first look at the season included a three-minute trailer packed with plenty of drama and the introduction of new Housewife Jennie Nguyen. With lots of (literal) finger-pointing, RHOSLC has plenty to tackle this season, from Jen Shah’s legal battles to accusations from some of the ladies that Mary Cosby might be a “cult leader.”
The Watch What Happens Live episodes should be interesting, to say the least. In the meantime, here’s your first look at everything Salt Lake City that’s coming up this fall, from the premiere date to the friendships that may already be in jeopardy:
RHOSLC season 2 premieres Sept. 12.
Grab your parkas and break out the hot chocolate, because season 2 premieres Sunday, Sept. 12 at 9 p.m./8 p.m. Central. Does anyone feel a chill?

Lisa Barlow, Heather Gay, Jen Shah, Meredith Marks, Whitney Rose, and Mary Cosby are back.
The cast filmed season 2 this past spring, and you can spot all your favorite Salt Lake City faces in a brand new trailer:
This season follows Jen Shah’s legal drama.
In March, Jen was arrested while on a bus to Vail, Colorado, during filming, per Entertainment Tonight. She originally said she had to leave because her husband, Sharrieff, was in the hospital—but minutes later, she was taken into custody. No word yet on whether her arrest will be included in the season, although a source told ET that Bravo kept filming without Jen, for the time being.
Then, in late July, People obtained a new court document stating that Jen and her assistant, Stuart Smith, were both “Tier A” defendants in a fraud case. The case alleges that Jen was a “senior participant” in a telemarketing scheme, through which she, Stuart, and a few others committed wire fraud and money laundering.

At any rate, you can bet that Jen’s case will be a major plot line this season. In the trailer, Jen is shown asking her husband, “do you know how fucking scared I am?” about the possibility that she might be arrested. Other cast members try to sort out just what kind of trouble Jen is in, while some start taking sides. (More on that later.)
“Bravo knows full well that viewers are following every detail of this case and will continue to do so as it progresses, so producers plan to follow it just as closely and use whatever footage they legally can,” a source told Page Six back in April.
Jennie Nguyen joins the cast as a housewife.
She may be new to the show, but Jennie doesn’t pull punches. Jen Shah says she’s “a little firecracker”—and she’s not wrong.
According to her Bravo profile, Jennie was born in Vietnam and immigrated to the U.S. when she was seven years old. She’s Lisa’s friend, and she’s “not afraid to ask the tough questions.” Jennie is a mother of three who’s now a stay-at-home mom, after selling her medical spa business.
Bravo also spilled some early deets on Jennie’s role this season: “We’ll see how Jennie navigates her next chapter as a stay-at-home mom to three kids after selling her medical spas, including feeling the pressure from husband Duy to expand their family. However, this newbie isn’t afraid to be ‘throwing down,’ as Heather puts it in the trailer.”

Some of the ladies have big questions for Mary Cosby about her church.
Mary Cosby is under fire this season for her role in her church community. “All the rumors are that Mary is a cult leader,” Whitney Rose says in the trailer.
Mary denies the accusations, but the ladies keep their questions coming. “Is it a cult? Yes. Does she call herself God? Yes,” a friend tells Lisa. Later, at a dinner party, Lisa says “I can back up everything I say,” while Mary responds, “you’re out of your mind.”
Looks like she has a lot of explaining to do, even after the season 1 reunion.

Heather, Meredith, and Whitney work on their family lives.
Bravo also shared some details about the Utah fam drama that’s coming this fall: “Along the way, the ladies will open up about their marriages like never before, including how Meredith and Seth are doing since reconciling last season and Whitney’s efforts to spice things up with husband Justin.”
“In fact, there will be no shortage of emotional family moments this season as Meredith’s son Brooks deals with some lingering issues with the group from last season and Heather gets ready for her eldest daughter to leave the nest—and possibly leave Mormon traditions behind as well,” Bravo continued.
All those loose ends from season 1 are definitely wrapping up. And, spoiler alert: Meredith and Seth look happier than ever in recent pics from a trip to France together.

Meredith slams the door on Jen at a party.
These two are anything but besties this time around. The drama continues as Meredith can barely talk about Jen this season without getting fired up: “Can we talk about the hundreds of lives she’s ruined?” she asks about Jen’s fraud charges.
The trailer ends with a huge blowout fight between Meredith and Jen at what looks like a dinner party at Meredith’s house. After Jen gets up to accuse Meredith of being involved in her indictment, Meredith leaves the table and goes inside. “Who’s calling who a fraud?” she says, adding, “love you, baby. Bye!” before slamming the door shut.
But, hey, at least Meredith and Whitney’s friendship looks stronger than ever. They’re now business partners:

If the new info is anything to go by, season 2 is going to be bigger, better, and juicier than ever. Tune in this September for a front row seat!
