'Real Housewives' star Jen Shah's legal drama is being filmed by Bravo

The powers that be at Bravo are planning to make the federal fraud and money laundering charges she faces a central part of the reality show’s second season — including exclusive footage of the embattled businesswoman’s arrest, a source told Page Six.

Bravo knows full well that viewers are following every detail of this case and will continue to do so as it progresses, so producers plan to follow it just as closely and use whatever footage they legally can,” the insider said.

“至今, they have filmed the lead-up to and aftermath of Jen’s arrest as well as her costars’ reactions, of course.

Shah is out on $ 1 million bond and presumably free to be on the show, which Bravo executives see as a chance for big ratings that they don’t want to squander.

It’s rare that Bravo has a big hit like ‘RHOSLC’ on its hands right out of the gate, and the team hoped to continue that momentum when production for Season 2 开始,” an insider said.

“现在, with the news of Jen’s arrest, they are sure to have even more success than they imagined, especially since Jen hopes to continue shooting if Bravo and her lawyers allow it. She can only say so much, 然而, as it remains an ongoing case.

Shah, 47, 和 her assistant Stuart Smith were arrested last week for allegedly ripping off elderly victims in a telemarketing scam going as far back as 2012 and as recently as the end of March 2021 as the scam allegedly crossed throughout six states.

The 'Housewives' star and her assistant pleaded not guilty to all charges and a trial has been set for October.

Shah and Smith both pleaded not guilty to all the charges and their trial is set for October.
