'RHOSLC' fans refuse to buy Jen Shah's claims of sacrificing a lot for her business
Ever since the news of Jen Shah's arrest broke out, 'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City' fans have been eagerly waiting to watch the drama unfold on the show. Considering the housewife was filming for the show while she was arrested, fans were pretty sure that they would get the full run-down on how things went down between Jen and the feds. Bravo decided to give the fans what they want and announced a two-hour special episode that would feature the much-awaited arrest clip.
So fans tuned in eagerly ready to catch all the action. The episode opened with Jen spending time with her assistant Stuart Smith. After her therapist advised her to spend more time with her loved ones, Jen decided to spend some quality time with Stu and express to him how much she appreciates and loves him. While praising Stuart for his loyalty and always being by her side, the housewife also reminisced about how she had to make many sacrifices to grow her business. Jen claimed that she made many huge sacrifices like spending time with her kids so that she could set up and grow her three businesses, which in turn would help her employees and their families. Jen even went on to declare that all her sacrifices were feeding her employees and their families.
Fans were beyond amused on hearing Jen make such lofty claims knowing that she was soon going to be arrested. A fan tweeted, "Jen Shah with this PR moment. Lmao. How much sacrifice goes into robocalling people about extended warranties #RHOSLC." Another fan wrote, "What did you sacrifice, Jen? Lol #RHOSLC." "Not Jen talking “sacrifices for business and money” #RHOSLC," seconded a fan. Another fan added, "The ordacity Jen has saying if it wasn’t for the her sacrifices families wouldn’t be eating now #RHOSLC."

The 47-year-old reality star was arrested on March 30, and charged in connection with a telemarketing scheme that defrauded several people, most of who are above the age of 55, according to a superseding indictment that was unsealed earlier this week. Shah was arrested alongside her 'first assistant' Stuart Smith. If found guilty, the duo could potentially be sentenced to up to 50 years in prison as the maximum sentence for conspiracy to commit wire fraud is 30 years while conspiracy to commit money laundering comes with a maximum of 20 years sentence. Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent-in-Charge Peter C. Fitzhugh explained how Shah and her agent "allegedly built their opulent lifestyle at the expense of vulnerable, often elderly, working-class people", as they continued to flaunt their "lavish lifestyle to the public as a symbol of their 'success," reported Fox News.
Towards the end of the episode fans finally got what they were looking for. The police and homeland security arrived just as the housewives were getting ready to leave for their vacation. But just moments before the police's arrival, Jen fled the spot by claiming a medical emergency. Jen revealed that she got a phone call saying that her husband Sharrief was in the hospital and was having internal bleeding. The police enquired with the producers and the ladies about Jen's whereabouts. We will have to catch up on the next episode to see how the police catch Jen and watch the much-awaited handcuffing scene.
'Real Housewives of Salt Lake City' Season 2 airs every Sunday at 9/8c on Bravo.
