PEOPLE confirmed that the Bravo newcomer was departing the series after just one season
Following the news of Monica’s departure from The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City after just one season, which PEOPLE confirmed on Tuesday, Cohen told Variety that “anything can happen” in the Bravosphere.
“Who knows?” the Watch What Happens Live host, 55, said when asked about the potential for Monica to return to viewers’ screens. “I love a comeback.”
Cohen noted it “would be very cool to find a path forward for her,” though he, along with several other producers on the franchise series, stressed that any such rebound would not be happening anytime soon.
“But Lisa [Barlow] and [showrunner] Lori [Gordon] are right — it feels too raw right now,” Cohen added.
Heather Gay — who pieced together that the RHOSLC newcomer had run RealityVonTease, an Instagram troll account with a history of posting negative things about the Bravo stars, and confronted her about it in the season 4 finale during the group’s dramatic Barbados trip — also weighed in on the topic, telling the outlet, “Monica has no connection with any of us right now.”
“There’s no chance that she will be in my home, in my business, or around me anytime soon,” Heather, 49, added.
Cohen also commented on Tuesday night’s third and final part of the season 4 reunion as he called reunions “like the Housewives’ court of law.”
“I think if Monica had come out and was able to sway even one of the women back on her side, it might be a different conversation right now,” he admitted of the tense conversations that took place between Monica and her former castmates, including Heather, Meredith Marks, Lisa Barlow, Whitney Rose and Angie Katsanevas.
After facing questions about RealityVonTease, Monica defended her actions, claiming her primary goal for posting on the account was “to expose Jen's abusive behavior,” referring to RHOSLC OG Jen Shah, who is currently serving a five-year sentence in prison for her role in a long-running telemarketing fraud scheme.
"You are not the hero in this story, Monica," Heather fired back, to which Monica replied, "I'm fine being the villain in this story, Heather, because you're the clowns in mine.”
Later on, Heather doubled down on how her castmate’s actions “ruined” her experience as a Housewife. “Every Housewife on every franchise would say that the worst part is the trolls and the bullies.”
Meredith, Lisa and Whitney all had Heather’s back and agreed that Monica’s betrayal was “too insurmountable” to move on from.
"I think it's very problematic to move forward in a situation where trust has been completely decimated," Meredith, 52, said.
