December 15 is Meredith Marks’ birthday.
I haven’t really warmed up to Meredith Marks like I do with a lot of Sagittarius “Housewives.” I can say the same thing about Lisa Barlow, but at least there is a chance that I might like Meredith one day. Mark my words: I won’t ever like Lisa Barlow.
Anyway, I wanted to take a deeper dive into Meredith’s natal chart, but I can’t be sure if she was born in 1971 or 1972. I was lucky to discover that she is a Sagittarius shortly after “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” premiered because Lisa actually mentioned their zodiac signs on the show. I wouldn’t be surprised if Meredith’s horoscope shares some similarities with Jill Zarin’s chart. They seem to be shit-disturbers in a manner that is calculated at one minute and completely oblivious at the next. No “Housewives” are consistently as messy as the Sagittarius women on these shows, and yet I find most of them to be quite likeable. I know, right? They lose me, however, when they start to behave as if they are bigger than the show that made them famous. I won’t mention any names . . .
I will mention that RHOSLC hit the jackpot when they cast these women. I adore Heather Gay and Whitney Rose. Jennie Nguyen is a terrific addition to the show. I can take or leave Meredith, although when she drops bombs like the security video from her boutique showing someone from Jen Shah’s posse pinching a handbag, I can’t get enough of her. The same goes for her “Scenes from a Bathtub,” where she pretended to catch up on the news of her castmate’s arrest. On the other hand, I loathe Lisa and Jen, and I can take or leave Mary Cosby. She’s a monster when she’s in the company of the other women, but I have to admit that I enjoy it when the cameras visit the insane asylum she calls her home.
It will be interesting to see who makes it to Season 3 on this show. I figure that Meredith will still be around, but I can’t say the same about Jen and Mary. When no one wants to film with you, you’re finished — just ask Monique Samuels. If Lisa doesn’t stop being such an asshole, I can see the other women turning their backs on her, too.
I guess I’ll find out soon enough. At the pace that “Salt Lake City” has been moving in just a season-and-a-half, something has got to give soon. Whoever thought that there was going to be so much drama in Utah? Not me!
