Real Housewives of Salt Lake star faces $400,000 loan lawsuit from Park City homebuilder

SALT LAKE CITY — Lisa Barlow, a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” and self-proclaimed “Queen of Sundance,” is facing a lawsuit accusing her of not repaying over $400,000 in loans.

The lawsuit, filed by Bart Carlson, president of Park City’s Yukon Construction, and his company in Utah’s 3rd District Court, alleges that Barlow and her companies, Luxe Marketing and Vida Tequila, owe over $410,000 in loans dating back to 2010. Plaintiffs allege breach of contract, breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing, unjust enrichment, and seek a declaratory judgment. Carlson and his company are demanding a jury trial for all issues.

Carlson agreed to loan Barlow funds without a specified repayment timeline due to their longstanding friendship. They were also business partners in the former Main Street Park City restaurant Silver. Payments were directed by Barlow to cover personal and business expenses. Barlow acknowledged the debt multiple times via text messages and other communications, indicating her inability to repay.

The lawsuit surfaces as Barlow continues to maintain an affluent, entrepreneurial image on the Bravo reality show, where she is often seen organizing events for the Sundance Film Festival.
