Fans of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City are witnessing a completely new dynamic between Whitney Rose and Heather Gay on season 3. The “Bad Weather” cousins still haven’t recovered from their brutal fight during the cast trip to Arizona, over an alleged rumor about co-star Lisa Barlows marriage. “Today, we are still not in a great space,” Whitney, 36, told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY on the latest episode of the Pay Attention Puh-Lease! podcast.

“Not the space that I’m hopeful that we can get back to. But it’s fine,” Whitney said about her current relationship with Heather, 40. “I think that after everything that has happened, sometimes it’s okay to just pause. It really is. And sometimes it’s needed.”

The drama between Whitney and Heather also spilled over into BravoCon last month, where they went at it during the dramatic RHOSLC panel. The former besties sat on opposite couches, Whitney with Lisa, and Heather with Meredith Marks, as chaos unfolded between the cast.

“At BravoCon I was pretty stunned because I thought we were in a different space. I learned on the BravoCon stage during the panel that we weren’t in the space that we left in on ‘Girls Trip,’ ” said Whitney, who also filmed season 3 of The Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip with Heather, and six other Housewives.

“So I don’t know. We’ll see,” the Wild Rose Beauty founder added, pondering the future of her relationship with Heather. “But I’m always positive about the future,” she also said. “I hope that everyone can resolve these issues. In the grand scheme of things, life is too short not to.”

Season 3 of RHUGT, which also stars Porsha Williams, Gizelle Bryant, and more, filmed after this current season of RHOSLC wrapped production. But according to Whitney, her and Heather were unable to get over their differences even in a completely different country.

“There was some bad weather in Thailand, for sure,” Whitney teased. “However, I thought it improved, but then I found out at BravoCon..I was pretty shocked. I didn’t realize that maybe…I thought we were okay.”
