“To be very clear, the allegation that I owe Bart or his company money is false. I pay my bills and obligations, and that’s what I always do. I look forward to the truth coming out and intend to hold Bart fully responsible for any harm this personal attack may cause to me or “For my company.”

The upcoming new season of “RHOSLC” is shaping up to be a dramatic season for the mother of two.

Sources close to the production told Page Six that other cast members — including returning stars Heather Gay, Whitney Rose, Meredith Marks, and Angie Katsanivas — were upset by Cosby’s role in the exchange.

“The entire cast was… absolutely stunned,” the insider explained of the cast’s reaction to Cosby’s outburst.

While a second source said Barlow was initially upset with Cosby for using the slur against their youngest son, another source told the outlet that they have since “adjusted the situation” at the time of the report and were filming together for the cast’s trip in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
