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 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.
Jen Shah’s indictment for alleged money laundering and wire fraud shocked viewers and peaked interest in the fledgling edition to the Real Housewives franchise. At the very least it livened up 2021 a bit. Everyone had a bad year except Andy Cohen apparently.
The fact that Bravo cameras were filming at the time of Jen’s arrest was nothing short of serendipitous. Then there was her dramatic exit from the courthouse. Also caught on camera. So of course viewers were anxious to know how much of it would be included in Season 2 of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. Would Jen be legally allowed to participate? Would Bravo cut ties with her?
If you thought Jen Shah was grasping for straws during the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City reunion after her bad behavior was exposed during the first season, she’s on a whole new level since her recent indictment. Jen is being charged for federal fraud and money laundering in connection with a long-running telemarketing scheme alongside her assistant Stuart Smith. Jen has insisted she’s innocent both in and out of the courtroom and is acting pretty tone-deaf about the situation. She’s posting #FreeJen on her Instagram story, continuing with her glam appointments and bashing her fellow castmates any way she can.
Some audio recently leaked of Jen referring to herself as the only minority in the cast, claiming that Mary Cosby “doesn’t count” because she “thinks she’s white.” Now, even more audio shows Jen accusing all of her RHOSLC co-stars of racism.
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.
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.
