While I frankly WILL NEVER RECOVER from the drama currently going down on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Bravo is out here trying to distract us with a new show and it's working. Welcome to the wonderful world of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, a franchise addition that, frankly, I never knew I needed.

Bravo dropped the trailer for RHOSLC (just going with that acronym 'til someone tells me otherwie...), and it is, as expected, completely deranged and delightful.

In the event that you, too, plan on becoming extremely invested in this group of women over the next 1-20 years of your life, you might as well get to know them. On that note, meet Lisa Barlow, Mary Cosby, Heather Gay, Meredith Marks, Jen Shah, and Whitney Rose.

Lisa was born in New York, but she's been living in Utah for over 20 years and considers herself to be a "Mormon 2.0" who doesn't always play by the rules. She's also a successful businesswoman who owns several tequila brands. In case you're craving physical proof of how fancy her life is, here you go:

Mary has "a penchant for God, couture and only the finest champagne," and is described by Bravo as a "Pentecostal First Lady who inherited her family’s empire of churches, restaurants and more." Also important: she married her late grandmother's second husband.

Heather Gay

The British royal family can move TF over, because Heather was "married to Mormon royalty for 11 years." However, she's since distanced herself from the church amid her divorce, now describing herself as simply “Mormon-ish.” Heather has several beauty businesses, is a mom to three kids, is LOOKING FOR LOVE, and, most importantly, has #FreeBritney in her Insta bio.

Expect celebrity jewelry designer Meredith Marks' marriage to be a big focus this season. As Bravo puts it: "Jewish and married for over 25 years, Meredith and her husband Seth have hit a rough patch and with their kids in college, she is faced with being an empty nester for the first time in her life." The network also describes her as "an ice queen with a knack for partying," which, relatable.

Jen is Tongan and Hawaiian, and converted from Mormonism to Islam after learning about the historical mistreatment of Black people in the Mormon religion. Meanwhile, Bravo says she loves to host parties and "can go from 0 to 100 very quickly, but usually comes back with apologies and love." Expect said parties to be verrrry fancy because Jen is the successful CEO of not one, but three, marketing companies.

Whitney Rose

Whitney is also a "descendant of Mormon Royalty," who left the church after having an affair with her boss and leaving her husband to be with him. Casual! Now they have two kids together and are happily married—HOWEVER—"Just when it seems like society is finally beginning to accept her 10-year-marriage, scandalous rumors about her progressive relationship start to swirl."
