How Rich The Salt Lake City Housewives, Mary Cosby?

How Rich The Salt Lake City Housewives Mary Cosby

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Mary Cosby lives an uncommon life. Known as the Pentecostal First Lady to her church’s congregation, Mary and her over-the-top outfits have been the topic of many a Watch What Happens Live conversation.

Most of Mary’s net worth is inherited, but she still has her hand in a few different businesses.

Mary’s Fortune Comes From Her Family Inheritance

Mary lives in Utah with her husband, Robert Cosby Sr., and their son, Robert Cosby Jr. Her grandmother, Rosemary Cosby, built an enormous fortune and willed it all to Mary—on the condition that Mary marries her husband, Robert, also known as Mary’s step-grandfather. Mary was in her early 20s, while Robert was in his 40s.

Don’t think it wasn’t weird, ’cause it was!” Mary said. “But I did it because I trusted my grandmother, and I’m so glad I did it.” She inherited Rosemary’s funds, her church, her homes, and more, according to Entertainment Tonight.

But Mary didn’t take over Rosemary’s church for the funds: “I’m so not in it for the money. Oh my goodness, I believe in what I do, I believe in what I’m saying, and I love my church and I love what they are,” she said. “Money can’t fulfill that, not for me.

It’s vague exactly how much money was passed down, but Mary’s inheritance totaled in the millions, according to some source estimates. She has kept all of her grandmother’s projects and businesses alive (and profitable) ever since.

Mary Inherited Other Businesses From Family

In addition to the church, Faith Temple, Mary also inherited other companies from Rosemary. She currently owns and operates chains of hair salons and restaurants, too, according to the source.

Mary describes herself in her Instagram bio as an entrepreneur and event specialist. Her bio also includes a link to Marimarta Perfumeria, although it’s hard to tell how Mary is connected to the brand. 

Either way, her many side hustles bring in plenty of additional income for Mary and her family.

She and Robert Sr. own five massive homes in five different states.

Mary inherited a few properties, too, per Bravo. She and Robert Sr. currently own five apartments and mansions all over the country. “Robert Sr. does love checking on all of the homes that we own,” Mary explained during one RHOSLC episode.

The couple looks after houses in Salt Lake City, Utah; Las Vegas, Nevada; New York City, New York; Carmel, Indiana; and Orlando, Florida. Oh, and they never rent them out, according to Mary. 

We don’t rent our houses or anything,” she said. “When we’re not there, they are empty. We don’t share.”

Mary’s Outfits Are Worth A Fortune

Mary’s outfits on RHOSLC are always designer, from head to toe. And, in an old Bravo Insider video, the housewife shared a sneak peek into her stuffed closet. 

RHOSLC viewers know that Mary’s wardrobe is spread out in various rooms throughout her mansion that she would otherwise leave empty.

While her impressive collection is packed with designer items, her treasure trove of Chanel clothing and accessories is the real star of the show. 

According to Us Weekly, Mary owns rare handbags from all different Chanel collaborations, some of which range up to $26,900 in resale value.

But her “favorite” clutch is a bag inspired by a Cuban cigar box.

 “I don’t know why, it’s just a feeling to it. It’s literally a handbag, but it’s literally a material from a real Cuba cigar. I’m sure guys would like this one,” Mary said.

Mary’s Net Worth

According to the source, Mary’s total net worth totals $5 million, making her fortune the same size as her co-star Lisa Barlow’s (meaning both Mary and Lisa are tied for the wealthiest Salt Lake City housewife).
