Sutton Stracke was a polarizing figure last season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She was only a Friend of the Housewives for Season 10, but she still managed to stir up plenty of drama. Sutton is wealthy and informed everyone that she only wears couture. Sutton was appalled that Kyle Richards didn’t have place cards at her dinner party. During a game of first impressions, Sutton told pregnant RHOBH co-star Teddi Mellencamp that she thought she would be “boring.”
Sutton’s antics even caused Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jackie Goldschneider to call her “a little too uppity.” Sutton insisted that she was “not a mean girl.” She also said, “Can I be a little snobby? Yes. But is that my whole personality? No.”
Jen Shah showed her true colors throughout the first season of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. We know she’s prone to temper tantrums, insulting her so-called friends and refusing to take responsibility for her actions.
Fans have been undoubtedly excited for the upcoming Season 2 of RHOSLC after an explosive debut. However, the anticipation reached an entirely new level when Jen was arrested for her alleged involvement in a long-running telemarketing scheme. She and her No. 1 assistant Stuart Smith are facing federal money laundering and fraud charges, which hold a maximum 30-year sentence in prison. Jen’s managed to have all of the marital problems, legal issues and explosive outbursts that it’s taken Teresa Giudice 11 seasons to master.
The long and drawn out saga of Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi continues. Tom has pretty much lost everything. His wife, his career, and his reputation is already 6 feet under. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star hasn’t skipped a beat though. Erika filed for divorce from Tom under the guise he was a cheater cheater pumpkin eater, but that may or may not be accurate given the circumstances.
‘Ol Tom and Erika have some explaining to do. Tom’s camp is trying to avoid explaining by diagnosing him with Alzheimer’s Disease, which is currently being challenged. Erika has remained unbothered as usual, filming RHOBH and playing the victim of a man who did her wrong. But not so fast, darling! We might have our first tangible kink in the system, and I’m not talking about Erika’s fondness for latex. It looks like some signatures have popped up. This could implicate Erika. The Pretty Mess is about to get a whole lot messier, you guys.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah was indicted on fraud and money laundering charges for her alleged involvement in a long-running telemarketing scheme. The story just keeps getting crazier. Jen spent the weekend posting on her Instagram like nothing is wrong. Jen took a page from Erika Jayne’s book. She even got her hair done prior to a court hearing. She pleaded not guilty. Well, innocent people don’t typically run when they get a tip that they’re going to be arrested. But, that’s for the jury to decide.
And despite the charges, Jen has continued to go on a rampage against her fellow castmates. And if you thought fat-shaming Heather Gay and screaming at everyone in her vicinity was a lot, she’s really not holding back now. To be fair, she has nothing to lose, and probably needs the publicity from the show to fund her hearty lawyer fees. And her knee-high leopard boots for the courtroom.
The first season of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City gave us beautiful scenery and a lot of people’s first look into the Mormon community. We had an eclectic group of women experiencing marital issues, the heartbreak of drug addiction, and, well, marrying your step-grandfather. We were also introduced to Jen Shah. Jen was loud, polarizing, and now currently under indictment for wire fraud and money laundering.
Last week, Jen found herself in handcuffs with her assistant Stuart Smith. After years of allegedly scamming people in a telemarketing scheme, the Feds finally caught up to Jen and Stu. Instead of going on a cast trip to Vail, she took a field trip to the courthouse. No word on whether or not Jen used her one phone call to check and see if your Nana wanted to renew her car’s extended warranty. As Jen awaits her fate, she has taken to social media to proclaim her innocence. Apparently, Jen’s attorney has not advised her to stay off of Instagram – but he should.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is filming their second season and I’ll go ahead and say it will be amazing. We’ll have crime. We’ll have scandal. We’ll have Mary Cosby quietly chuckling to herself beneath the depths of
fake Yves Saint Laurent voile blouses in her closet. Going into the first season, Jen Shah seemed to get the most attention. She was kind of… insane at times. It was almost as if Jen took a crash course in how to bring the most drama and passed with a 4.0 GPA.
But Jen went the extra mile. Not only did she get her fair share of media attention, she managed to score a quintessential accessory only a few Housewives have – a mug shot. On the bright side, Jen was in full glam when she was arrested, so it will be more like a smug shot. Per the usual Housewife rhetoric, Jen isn’t exactly humble about her affluent lifestyle. Her RHOSLC audition video has resurfaced and now we get our first taste of how Jen spent other people’s money. Allegedly.
It looks like you legal eagle fans are in for a busy next few weeks! On the heels of Jen Shah’s fall from grace, we are still dealing with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne and Tom Girard’s scandal. And this mess goes back decades. Allegedly. In addition, Tom may or may not be suffering from memory loss, but after exposure to excessive amounts of hairspray and spray tan fumes over the years, anything is possible.
We know Erika dumped Tom because of his cheating ways, and definitely not because they were trying to save their asses. We know Tom is being kicked out of his house and will probably have to relocate to Encino. And we know Tom somehow lost tons of cash and has no idea where it went – but it definitely didn’t fund Erika’s singing career because she has real, natural talent, y’all… We also know Big Tommy was stripped of his ability to practice law in California. Now the California State Bar takes one more step in the Girardi downfall. Disciplinary charges against Tommy have been filed.
Jen Shah can run, (and she tried to, bless her heart) but she can’t hide now that she’s been busted. This is how you get the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City second season started. As you know, Jen is going out in a blaze of leopard print glory now that her ALLEGED criminal activities have come to light. To be fair, most of the viewing audience clocked Jen’s sketchy financial situation when pretty much no one believed someone could have that much designer clothing on a college football coach’s salary.
While the supposed scamming jobs Jen and her assistant have ALLEGEDLY run on people since 2012 blew up in her face, we might have some new insight on Jen’s somewhat high-strung attitude. Nothing can make a girl pop off like the looming discovery of a telemarketing scheme that defrauded hundreds of people. Honey, if you are doing shady business deals, reality television is not the platform for you. Now Jen is about to face the music. Yesterday Jen was to virtually participate in her arraignment, but an overloaded conference call line caused the hearing to be postponed. We see you,
Andy Cohen Bravo fans!
