Real Housewives of Salt lake City star Mary Cosby has denied allegations that she said she was scared of Black men outside a 7-Eleven.
“I said I have a fear [of] when guys are standing out in front of a convenience store,” she told Andy Cohen at the upcoming reunion per Page Six. The Bravo exec then asked, “Black guys?”
Mary answered by saying, “I’m Black. My son is Black.”
Mary then went on to seemingly state she did not have a preference for Black men:
“My taste of Black guys — that’s not my taste,” she said.
“Your taste is not for Black guys?” Cohen asked.
“No,” she responded — adding that she prefers lighter-skinned men. She denies being racist. “I need to improve on the way I convey things … The way I say things can come across [as] offensive. I think all colors of Black are beautiful and I’m proud of it and I’m proud of my culture.”
