The Real Reason RHOSLC’s Jen Shah Was Arrested

Things aren’t looking too good for Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah. The reality star was arrested in late March 2021 on federal charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering in connection with a purported long-running telemarketing scam, per NBC. Jen and her assistant Stuart Smith were indicted out of Manhattan federal court.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss released a statement in the wake of the two Bravo stars’ arrests. “Jennifer Shah, who portrays herself as a wealthy and successful businessperson on ‘reality’ television, and Stuart Smith, who is portrayed as Shah’s ‘first assistant,’ allegedly generated and sold ‘lead lists’ of innocent individuals for other members of their scheme to repeatedly scam,” the statement reads (via NBC). “In actual reality and as alleged, the so-called business opportunities pushed on the victims by Shah, Smith, and their co-conspirators were just fraudulent schemes, motivated by greed, to steal victims’ money.”

The fraud conspiracy charge carries a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
