The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Meredith Marks reveals where she got the phrase “I’m disengaging,” which ended up becoming her trademark on the show.
Meredith sat down with Gibson Johns for an episode on his podcast titled We Should Talk during which she discussed all things Housewives.
Gibson congratulated Meredith for receiving her own catchphrase so early on in her Housewives career.
“‘I’m disengaging’ just became…the couple more times that it happened, it made it this thing that people just started to pick up on and love and start repeating,” Gibson observed. “You know, that must’ve been kind of fun because not everyone gets sort of like a catchphrase in their first season. You really have this iconic phrase that people are using all the time now.”
Meredith then explained the origins of the phrase.
“And I think it’s healthy and positive. And honestly, it all stemmed from the therapy that I was going through,” Meredith explained. “I kept being taught in a situation where it’s too heated and you know the outcome is not gonna be what you want, time out, disengage.”
