The Sun can exclusively share multiple sources confirm Mary, 49, was missing from the reunion and bailed as the production team expected her attendance.

The insider revealed: "She definitely didn't go. Production planned on Mary being there.

"Andy had a very long list of questions for her, but she bailed. She's been MIA so no one knows why, but with the backlash and scandals going on involving her, it's not too hard to figure out."

Mary has been surrounded in in scandal since mid-September of last year when she was accused of running an alleged cult by her former Faith temple members instilling fear in anyone who attempted to leave.

COSBY'S 'CULT?'

Back in September 2021, The Daily Beast reported former church members claimed Mary operated the church like a "cult" telling them they will be "condemned to hell" if they don't listen to her.

Mary took over the reigns at the church in 1997 after her grandmother Rosemary "Mama" Redmon Cosby passed away.

She married her widowed step-grandfather Bishop Robert Cosby shortly after her grandmother's death, which she previously claimed was the only way to keep the church in the family.

The pastor revealed in a previous episode to castmate Heather Gay her grandmother's wishes to take her place.

She told Heather: "My grandmother in her will, she wanted me to take her place."

The mother-of-one told producers: "Basically, my grandmother passed everything on to me – literally – and she also wanted me to marry her second husband, which was my step-grandfather."

When Heather asked if he was her "blood grandfather," she said no and explained: "It was weird. He is not my blood at all."

Mary then began to cry and explained she "did marry him."

She said: "I didn't want to, Heather. I didn't want to. That's weird to me, but she wanted it. She really did, and so I obeyed her because I trusted every word.

"If she managed to bring this church so far, then she has to be right and look at my life – You think I'm this high fashion … Louis Vuitton?

"And maybe I am because I chose right. I chose what the man upstairs told me to do."

She then explained to producers: "It took us two years to get married. The reason why it took me two years, I had to be certain. As it went on, I decided to pray and seek a higher self and when I did, I was certain and I married him."

CHURCH MEMBERS CLAIMS

However, her commanding position at the church has stirred some trouble among former members who claimed she had transformed the religious sanctuary into a cult.

The members also alleged she refered to herself as "God," encouraged members to work for free or minimum wage at the family's numerous businesses, berated church-goers from the podium, and forbade anyone to leave for another church or they would be "condemned to hell."

One former church member who spoke to the publication said Mary "brainwashed" those in the congregation "on the regular."

The Sun reached out to Mary Crosby's rep, but they declined to comment.

Mary denied claims she's running a cult, defending herself to Entertainment Tonight and said: "Clearly, I’m not gonna get on national television, be a Housewife and be in a cult.

"Like, come on. I believe in my church. There’s no cult. My church members, they know those are false allegations. Those are ridiculous. It’s the people that are looking for fault," she continued.

The claims are addressed in the series' second season as some of the cast members expressed their suspicions that Mary is a cult leader.

In the trailer for season two, Lisa Barlow spoke to a man who told her: "Is it a cult? Yes. Does she call herself God? Yes."

'SICK & GROSS'

More recently, Mary was accused of "encouraging suicide" as she told angry fans to "jump" after she was slammed for "mocking an accent."

During the January 2 episode of RHOSLC, Mary came under fire for racially insensitive comments about co-star Jennie Nguyen’s facial features in a previous episode.

Mary was accused of discussing Jennie’s “slanted eyes” and calling her skin tone “yellow” while she was also slammed for mocking a Vietnamese accent.

Jennie, 44, confronted Mary during the episode as she explained: "You're an adult, take some responsibility. Right now, there is a lot of Asian hate. Take responsibility for your words."

Mary eventually apologized and said: "I will never walk down that road. I apologize." 

As the episode aired, fellow RHOSLC star Meredith Marks, 49, responded to Mary’s offensive actions as she tweeted: “I later talked to Mary one on one in hopes that would be productive.

"I also made sure Jennie knew that she has my support. Please be patient.”

One fan responded to Meredith’s tweet and asked: “What the hell is wrong with Mary?”

Mary then got involved and wrote: “What’s wrong with you? Go jump! I don’t care what you think? I don’t know you and don’t want too! You would not understand me anyway…”
