Whitney Rose

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.

Lisa Barlow Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City

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.

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. 

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. 

Jen Shah Defends Posting On Instagram After Arrest, Says She’s Combatting “Negativity Spewed” About Fraud Allegations

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.

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 Jen Shah

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.
