Jennie Nguyen says ‘RHOSLC’ co-star complicit in racism for not speaking against ‘slanted eyes’ remark

  • “Real Housewives of Salt Lake” star Jennie Nguyen called out co-star Meredith Marks for being “complicit” in the racist drama between the Vietnamese reality TV star and Mary Cosby.
  • Cosby allegedly made insensitive comments about Nguyen, including how she loved her Asian co-star’s “slanted eyes.” She also allegedly tried to imitate Nguyen’s accent.
  • “It is not okay to imitate someone’s accent,” Marks said in a tweet after Sunday’s episode.

Real Housewives of Salt Lake” star Jennie Nguyen recently called out co-star Meredith Marks online as the racial drama between Nguyen and co-star Mary Cosby continues.

Nguyen confronted Marks in a now-deleted tweet that Instagram page @QueensofBravo shared a screenshot of on Monday, calling the latter out for being complicit in the racial drama, according to RealityBlurb.

Racism, in any form, is RACISM! This is what my husband [Duy Nguyen] I grew up with daily. To be silent, or to laugh while someone is being racist, is to be complicit,” Nguyen wrote in the tweet embedded with a picture of Marks.

The racial drama began on Sunday’s episode of the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake” when Nguyen confronted Cosby for her comment about how the latter loved the Vietnamese housewife’s “slanted eyes” at a previous pho luncheon, People reported.

Nguyen said Cosby’s comment left her “frustrated” and “very mad.” While speaking to her husband, the reality TV star said the incident was “insulting to our Asian culture” and how it “comes across as racist.”

Cosby was also accused of trying to imitate Nguyen’s accent. However, in a tweet on Monday, the reality TV actress dragged co-star Lisa Barlow into the drama by saying she also tried to mimic the Asian actress’ accent “the entire season.”

After being tagged into the conversation, Barlow quickly denied Cosby’s statement with a one-word reply: “Never.”

Incidentally, Marks also took to her Twitter to criticize Cosby for the accent imitation issue, saying, “It is not okay to imitate someone’s accent.” Cosby mentioned Barlow again in her reply to the tweet, in which she brought up the same point she made in the other post.
