I love a good mystery and when all else fails, this one will do. Recently Andy Cohen announced a Watch What Happens Live special featuring the children of Bravolebrities. “Children” meaning 18 years old and over… No minors will be a part of this program, but that doesn’t stop parents from subjecting their youngsters to scorn and humiliation over the course of 13 episodes. The line up includes various spawn representing most of the Real Housewives franchises.
Not every adult kid could participate. Some are in college, some have families in far away places, and some weren’t asked to join in on the fun. Rumors began swirling that two pissed off Housewives called Daddy with a bone to pick because their child wasn’t tapped. The Bravo detective squad, arguably more lethal than the CIA, began sleuthing in attempts to figure out which indignant women complained. According to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Rinna, we can eliminate her from the list. But we all know Lisa has memory problems, so she might not even remember making the call…
You can’t get blood from a stone, but you can surely squeeze Bravo stunts for all they are worth. First we hear a Real Housewives All Stars project is in the works and now we have… Children of the Bravolebrities. If you aren’t staying awake at night wondering what haute couture Brooks Marks will release next, then who are you? Bravo has never ventured into these waters before, but it’s not a half bad idea. Why not hear from the people who never signed up to be on television?
While most of Bravo’s content stems from adults, often times the kids are the most level-headed. I’m looking at you, Gia Giudice. Some start out as toddlers and literally grow up before our eyes, venturing out into the real world and starting families of their own. They also have their fair share of challenges from cameras following them throughout their awkward years. Now Andy Cohen is giving fans the opportunity to catch up with some of the Bravo spawn and he has announced the line up. Spoiler alert, Milania Giudice got the shaft, but perhaps, that’s because she’s not 18 yet.
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.
Here we go, everybody! Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah had her virtual moment in court. Jen was indicted on Tuesday on federal charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering in an alleged long-running telemarketing scam. Stuart Smith, necklace lover and Jen’s loyal assistant
in crime, was also cuffed for his part in the scheme. Bravo cameras were rolling when federal agents made the move to place Jen in custody, so there is little doubt this will play out on RHOSLC’s second season.
Jen was scheduled virtually appear before Judge Sidney Stein for an arraignment on March 31, but an overloaded call (translation: Bravo fans) bumped the meeting to today. This morning Jen showed up to face the music in full Gucci. When asked how she pleads to her suspected crimes, Jen was all, “Guilty? I don’t know her…”
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.
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!
How do we feel about the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’s first season? The snow-topped mountains, meeting a fresh cast of women, and developing a new appreciation for blenders. It was nice to gain insight on what it’s like to live in a community where the Mormon majority is high but the moral majority is questionable.
Jen Shah was labeled a break out star. She has the attitude, the drama, and the shoes. Jen did relatively well in her first season. She didn’t shy away from detailing family issues. She definitely didn’t shy away from confrontation. And she wasn’t afraid of showing a vulnerable side to her often brash personality. But according to Jen, not all of the women were as authentic. Now Jen shares her thoughts on who wasn’t sharing their truths, and who might be a different person when cameras are down.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City came in like a lion and will go out like a bat out of hell, apparently. If you haven’t watched, then you need to, and if you have then you already know. They have snow. They have blenders. And they have Jen Shah. Jen has the whole Housewife thing down to a formula and her formula is basically read, rinse, and repeat.
Jen is not one to stay quiet, which is preferred, because, MENTION IT ALL. She isn’t shy about sharing her opinion on fellow cast mates and now Jen is branching out to share her thoughts about other Bravo ladies. During a recent interview, Jen was asked who her least favorite Housewife is overall. And if you thought Jen would avoid this question in the name of keeping the peace, you might want to think again.
