Salt Lake City, Utah is known for several things: stunning views, mountains as far as the eye can see and, of course, their beloved housewives. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City premiered back in 2020, and has garnered a massive fan base of housewife lovers since. Not only do fans love to keep up with the drama on the show, they also love to get in on the behind-the-scenes action, and just this week, it was revealed that two current and former Salt Lake City housewives have entered a legal battle over what the defendant claims to be “botched” injections.
Heather Gay and Monica Garcia Go to Court Over Injection Disagreement
OG member of the RHOSLC crew, Heather Gay, has since left the housewives franchise, but has expanded into the cosmetics realm, as the co-owner of Beauty Lab and Laser LLC, a medspa in Salt Lake City. Gay takes a lot of pride in her brand, but the company is now facing criticism as current RHOSLC, Monica Garcia, filed a countersuit against the medspa for what she claims to be “botched” injections.
Back in 2019, Beauty Lab and Laser made a contract with Garcia to perform a series of “cosmetic injections,” all of which totaled to $2,449. Garcia paid $449 upfront, but has “failed to make any other payments that were due,” resulting in a civil action suit filed against Garcia on behalf of Beauty Lab.
In response, Garcia has filed a countersuit, claiming that she has not made payments on account of poor work. According to the countersuit, “The parties reached an oral accord and satisfaction wherein Monica paid for another, competent party to fix the damage to Monica’s nose and lips caused by the incompetent, negligent actions of Beauty Lab’s staff, and Beauty Lab was entitled to no further payment.” Due to the apparent “negligent actions” and “damage” caused by Beauty Lab, Garcia is now seeking less than $50,000 in damages.
In defense of her business, Gay stated that “our injectors are nationally ranked and leaders within the industry and our legion of loyal customers speaks for itself. This lawsuit in the press has no merit and is unfortunately a pattern of behavior from a desperate woman who, when unable to pay her bills, lashes out to avoid accountability.”
