It’s not amore, it’s a-Mary!

Brooks Marks reveals on an upcoming episode of Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast that Mary Cosby — a good friend and castmate of his mother, “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” OG Meredith Marks — wants him to meet a hunky Italian friend of hers. 

“[She wants to] set me up with this really hot man in Italy,” the 23-year-old fashion designer and model says, adding that he has not met the suitor in question.

“I haven’t been to Italy yet.”

Brooks jokes that Cosby, 50 — a Pentecostal Christian preacher by profession — could even officiate a potential wedding with the mysterious Italian stallion.

Although, he adds, “I don’t think that would be very respectful to my Jewish roots.”

On a more serious note, Brooks explains that the style-minded “RHOSLC” star holds a special place in his heart because she is constantly encouraging him to expand his Brooks Marks brand — a line of tracksuits that has evolved into more athleisure wear and accessories. (Unisex pants are launching soon.)

“I really love Mary. Mary’s honestly one of my mom’s most supportive friends towards me,” he tells us, gushing over the “very, very sweet and very supportive” church leader. 

“She is constantly pushing me to work on my brand and she gives me design ideas. She wants to connect me with all these people in the fashion industry who she thinks can help me with my brand and stuff.”

Brooks’ kind remarks about Cosby come just months after Page Six confirmed that she would be returning to “RHOSLC” in a “friend of” role after dropping her snowflake for Season 3. 

“Mary wanted to come back,” the insider said in February, weeks before production for Season 4 began. 

However, a second source said that while Cosby had hoped to come back to the franchise, she needed time to process Jennie Nguyen’s racist controversy.

Nguyen, 45, was fired in January 2022 after just one season for a series of offensive social media posts that mocked the Black Lives Matter movement and protests of 2020.

“Mary was dealing with a lot of trauma after Season 2,” the insider told us of Cosby, who notably skipped the Season 2 reunion before exiting the show altogether.

“Jennie’s racist posts really seemed to shake Mary, especially after Jennie threw a glass at her on camera,” the source elaborated.

“Mary was grateful for the time away from the cameras, but she seems ready to get back in the mix.”

Bravo has yet to announce a premiere date for the next “Salt Lake City” installment.
