Jen Shah Bragged About Making ‘Millions’ In ‘RHOSLC’ Interview

Admitted fraud Jen Shah bragged about making “millions” in an interview for “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” season 1.

“What I’ve been doing for the past 20 years is direct response marketing. I make millions,” boasted the controversial Bravo personality, 48, in a confession filmed on December 9, 2019.

“Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do for money. I am like the Wizard of Oz.”

Notably, Shah’s Instagram bio still features “Direct Response Marketing.”

Recorded within the first two minutes of the Season 3 premiere of ‘RHOSLC’ on Wednesday, the clip illustrates the difference three years has made in the lives of Shah and her castmates Meredith Marks, Lisa Barlow, Heather Gay and Whitney Rose. .

Shah’s fraud case is of course mainly covered in the next episode of the hit reality show.

“Our time is coming. I just can’t lie to you,” Sharrieff Shah Sr. told his wife in 2022. “This is a test for all of us.”

Elsewhere, Jen admits her ongoing legal drama is taking its toll.

“I want to fucking kill myself and just not be here,” she says in the sneak peek, later exclaiming, “Everything has been taken from me. Everything!”

Jen allegedly scammed hundreds of people through a nationwide telemarketing program, primarily targeting older people.

Her arrest in March 2021 was documented on “RHOSLC”.

In July, Jen pleaded guilty when she appeared before U.S. District Judge Sidney Stein in Manhattan federal court, overturning her previous plea of ​​not guilty.

Jen’s plea deal calls for 14 years in prison and restitution of up to $9.5 million. The reality star – who previously declared her innocence in court and on “RHOSLC” – will be sentenced on November 28.

All of this has allowed Jen to lean on co-stars Marks, 50, and Gay, 40, who met her in New York City prior to her pre-trial hearing.

“Jen and I are still talking. And more than ever I think she probably needs some support from those around her,” Marks recently told Vidak For Congress about her decision to show support.

“It is still an open matter. She hasn’t been convicted, so it’s nothing she can talk about freely,” the jewelry designer continued. “So that’s why I would never ask questions — because I know she can’t talk about it.”

Season 3 of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” premieres Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
