Shah bragged about how her job has made her rich: ‘Hey you gotta do what you gotta do for money’
Bravo shared an old interview with Shah on the first episode of RHOSLC where she brags about how much money she makes at work.
“What I’ve been doing for the last 20 years is direct response marketing. I’m making millions,” Shah says in the interview, which Bravo says was filmed Dec. 9, 2019. “Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do for money. I’m like the Wizard of Oz.”
The interview was shared during the Sept. 28 premiere of RHOSLC Season 3, which will star Shah just before she pleaded guilty on the wire fraud conspiracy on July 11, 2022.
In the teaser clip for the season, Shah describes how the arrest and charges have impacted her life since then.
“I want to fucking kill myself and just not be here,” she says. In a separate clip, she says: “Everything was taken from me. All!”
Shah’s arrest was featured in Season 2 of RHOSLC in a now infamous bus ride gone awry.
Shah originally pleaded not guilty to the charges, but after everyone else arrested alongside her changed their guilty pleas, so did she.
“Jennifer Shah, who portrays herself on ‘Reality’ television as a wealthy and successful businesswoman, and Stuart Smith, portrayed as Shah’s ‘first assistant,’ have allegedly created ‘lead lists’ of innocent people for other members of their scheme and have repeatedly sold out deceive”, Manhattan US Attorney Audrey Strauss stated in a press release. “In reality, and as claimed, the so-called business opportunities foisted on the victims by Shah, Smith and their co-conspirators were just fraudulent schemes motivated by greed to steal the victims’ money. Now these defendants face jail time for their alleged crimes.”
As part of the plea deal, “She agreed to waive $6.5 million and pay up to $9.5 million in damages and faces up to 14 years in prison.” NBC News reports back then.
“From 2012 to March 2021, I conspired with others in the Southern District of New York and elsewhere to commit wire fraud.” Shah said in court, according to Time Magazine. “I did this by knowingly giving out customer names to people who were marketing business services that had little or no value… I knew that was wrong. I know a lot of people have been hurt and I’m so sorry.”
Shah’s Instagram bio is still Direct Response Marketing and Entrepreneur. Her sentencing is scheduled for November 28th.
Heather Gay Still Supports Her Co-Star: ‘I’ll Never Close The Door On Jen Shah’
While speaking to Today in an interview dated September 29, 2022, Shah’s Fried and co-star Heather Gay spoke about their undying support of Shah following her arrest.
“A good friend does that. Even if every cell in my body said, ‘Something’s wrong.’ That’s not what you do when your friend is in trouble,” she told the outlet.
She also said the support will not stop no matter what happens to her.
“I wasn’t supporting Jen and her innocence as much as I was just supporting Jen on her journey,” Gay told the outlet. “If I’m going to be Jen’s friend when she’s up and Queen and MVP, then I’ll be her friend when she’s down, plead guilty and face sentencing. I will never lock the door on Jen Shah.”
