Heather Gay Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City

Jen Shah was the HBIC on Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. Last season, during a RHOSLC cast trip to Las Vegas, Jen got in Whitney Rose’s face. She also screamed at her most loyal supporter, Heather Gay.

In March of 2021, audio of Jen allegedly verbally attacking her Shah squad and designer Koa Johnson leaked. Jen sent cease and desist letters to the Instagram accounts that leaked the audio.

Ever since the news broke about Jen Shah’s arrest, anticipation for her return to the small screen sky-rocketed.  It was damn good luck that the Feds came for her while Bravo cameras were rolling for Season Two of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.  Jen has yet to have her day in court to determine if she is guilty of the charges.  The arrest was very much real though, and RHOSLC fans can’t wait to see Jen humbled a little.

Of course, Season One was volatile and entertaining in its own right.  Heather Gay just wanted to party and hook up. Whitney Rose accused Lisa Barlow and Meredith Marks of being afraid of Jen, which caused a lot of strife at Coach Sharrieff Shah’s birthday party.  Lisa and Meredith denied the allegations, despite Jen’s tendency to rage and throw glasses.  Interactions with Jen were so toxic that Meredith wisely “disengaged” from confrontations all season.  And while no one admitted to fearing Jen, the RHOSLC ladies agreed that she is untrustworthy.

Jen Shah Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City

Out of all the insane stories and controversial moments that have happened in the Bravoverse over the past year, Jen Shah of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City really takes the cake. Her first season on the show was filled with her erratic behavior and seemingly picture-perfect life, which we all know is really a scam now. Jen was arrested a few weeks back for allegedly being involved in a long-running fraud and money laundering telemarketing scheme that targeted the elderly. And while she’s been posting on Instagram as if she’s not facing 30 years behind bars (#unarrested), the charges alleged against her and her assistant Stuart Smith are truly horrific, to put it in the words of her old buddy Brooks Marks.

Jen has pleaded not guilty both in and out of the courtroom, but the evidence isn’t looking too good for Miss Shah. She was apparently tipped off about her arrest, somewhat attempted to flee and traumatized producers in the process. And even though Bravo did their homework, it’s really curious why Jen would even appear on a reality show in the first place if she was involved in such shady business. At least Bravo is going to get some crazy footage for Season 2.

Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City Brooks Marks

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is already in the running for best city after just one explosive season. So many memorable moments have already been made — from Meredith Marks’disengaging,” Mary Cosby’s unconventional marriage and Jen Shah’s erratic and explosive behavior. And Season 2 is already looking to top the debut. Jen’s arrest for her alleged involvement in a fraud and telemarketing scheme that targeted the elderly is sure to be a major focus. She and her No. 1 assistant Stuart Smith are facing up to 30 years in prison for their involvement. But much like during Season 1, Jen’s not taking accountability, proclaiming her innocence and making posts on social media like she’s not facing decades behind bars.

Season 2 will really be unlike any other. Apparently, Jen was tipped off while filming about her arrest, may or may not have attempted to flee and the whole thing traumatized producers. While her boss Andy Cohen is giving the benefit of the doubt to Jen, hoping that the so-called “Wizard Of Oz” of marketing is innocent. However, other Bravolebrities, including former housewives, aren’t so sure.

Vanderpump Rules Lala Kent

The silver lining in the mess that was 2020 was that Bravo gifted us with the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. And they didn’t just launch a new show, they knocked it out of the park with Season 1. Jen Shah’s outbursts. Heather Gay’s loyalty. Meredith Marks’ disengaged attitude. Mary Cosby in her closet with her step-grandpa. We loved every minute of it.

The show stood so well on its own after Season 1, fans probably forgot that a few Vanderpump Rules stars made an appearance at the beginning of the show. Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Lala Kent, both from Utah, are pretty tight with Whitney Rose and Heather. They made an appearance at the Shah Chalet, which may or may not have been just a set up by production. It opens the doors for more VPR cameos in future seasons, now that we know Pump Rules isn’t dead and gone for good.

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City only recently finished their first season. And truthfully, it was one of the strongest first seasons from a franchise that we’ve seen in well, forever. Bravo really nailed the casting, right down to their heroes (Heather Gay) and villains (Jen Shah).

But as we have recently come to learn, Jen isn’t just a villain on screen. She might also be one off screen, having been busted by the feds for alleged shady business practices. It’s true, throughout the season, her castmates had questions about what exactly it is that Jen does. Her husband is a college coach but we all know that’s not bringing in chalet money. Even if it was a rental. Nah, Jen was always dressed to the nines in designer clothes and had multiple assistants, plus a glam squad. And everyone was wondering for what. We never got our answer on the show. But now we think we might have an idea.

Margaret Josephs Real Housewives Of New Jersey

While Margaret Josephs is past her days of feuding with Danielle Staub and throwing her ex-husband in the pool on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, she has a new enemy in town. This season, Jennifer Aydin and the Marge have been going at it, throwing low-blows back and forth at each other. Jennifer is a ride-or-die to Teresa Giudice, while Margaret tries to hold Tre accountable. The two have never really gotten along, but this season is a whole new level. 

And apparently, Jennifer Aydin isn’t the only Jen that Marge has some opinions about. On a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Marge gave her feelings about the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. And particularly, what she thinks about Jen Shah’s recent arrest for her alleged involvement in a telemarketing scheme that targetted the elderly. She and her assistant Stuart Smith are facing federal fraud and money laundering charges, which hold a 30-year maximum prison sentence.

Jen Shah Heather Gay Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City

Jen Shah from the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City has a reputation for being pretty vicious (and tone-deaf). She called Mary Cosby a “grandpa f–ker” and says Mary thinks she’s white. She’s fat-shamed Heather Gay and accused her of being “racist AF.” She’s gone after Meredith Marks’ marriage and has a burning rage for Whitney Rose. She’s even got beef with Meredith’s son Brooks Marks. The only ally she seems to have is Lisa Barlow, apparently because she’s the only one that’s not a “fake ass white girl” aka makes excuses for Jen. 

Things took a turn for Jen recently when she was arrested for her alleged involvement in a telemarketing scheme. She and her assistant Stu Chains (Stuart Smith) are facing federal fraud and money laundering charges that carry a maximum of 30-years in prison if found guilty. In true fashion, she’s denying it all, even pleading not guilty in court. Oh, and disparaging her castmates at every turn along the way.
