Lisa Barlow cropped out newbie Monica Garcia from a cast photo she shared on Instagram, leading fans to believe there’s trouble afoot.
Around the same time, a video surfaced of Lisa and Monica in a heated discussion at a Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast event, though the details surrounding their conversation are still a mystery.
In the image, Lisa is standing in the center, which is perhaps a sign that the upcoming drama will revolve around her.
Meanwhile, in a video of a recent cast event, shared by @bravobeez on Twitter, Lisa is spotted in what appears to be a heated argument with Monica.
During the exchange, which was filmed by the production crew, Lisa is gesticulating with her hands in a seemingly angry manner as Monica appears to match her energy.
At one point in the conversation, Monica points to a third woman present, perhaps Angie Harrington, who reportedly was promoted to full-time castmate in the absence of Jen Shah.

Jen, as many viewers know, is now serving prison time after pleading guilty to fraud. In the season leading up to her sentence, the star expressed repeatedly that she was innocent.
Back in January, Whitney revealed on her Wild Rose podcast that a “dynamic” new castmate was joining the show — someone who is “going to ruffle some feathers.”
“This year we have new blood coming in, new friends, new faces,” she also said at the time. “There’s rumors that we have some old friends and old faces coming back so… we’ll see.”
