Much like Housewives fans, who have long been speculating over who gave Heather Gay her infamous black eye on The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season 3, producer Andy Cohen has shared his own theory about the incident.
During an episode of Watch What Happens Live, guest and Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent teased that she believed the Bad Mormon author was injured by her contentious co-star Jen Shah, as Page Six reports.
“I think it’s from a cast member,” Kent hinted about the incident before Cohen quickly jumped in with his own theory.
“From Jen Shah?” Cohen asked. “I do too. I don’t think she hit her head on a cabinet and got scratches on her arm.”
Gay, however, continues to assert that she has no idea how she got the black eye, which was the talk of the town during a cast trip to San Diego on RHOSLC season 3.
How did Heather Gay get her black eye?
“I blacked out,” Gay reportedly claimed on the first part of the RHOSLC reunion. “I don’t know how it happened.”
“I woke up terrified,” she added. “I had my phone plugged in, I was in pajamas.”
The star then continued on to allege that she was afraid that her castmates would use the opportunity to “rewrite the narrative” if she couldn’t remember how she got the black eye.
“When production came into my room, I told them, I said, ‘I have no idea, I have no memory,’” Gay said. “And then it spun out of control after that, and I take full responsibility, and I’m really sorry. It’s terrifying.”
This does contradict Gay’s original on-air story, as she claimed to remember what happened, but would rather have other people who know the details come forward.
Curious enough, during the episode, Gay immediately texted Shah, who said that she would help her figure out “a good cover story.”
“I don’t wanna get anyone in trouble, Jen,” Gay said. “So that’s why I need you to help me figure out if someone wants to talk about what really happened last night.”
It’s starting to seem like we may never know what really happened to Gay (although Cohen has opinions of his own). In the meantime, after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud last July, Shah begins her 6-and-a-half-year prison sentence today, as ET Canada reports.
