The episode revealed that she knew former housewife Jen Shah before her arrest in 2021.

When we sat down with Lisa Barlow and Angie Katsanevas, the topic revolved around Monica’s relationship with Jen.

At one point, Monica temporarily replaced one of Jen’s assistants after he was fired.

In a confessional, Monica revealed that Jen sat down with her and asked, “Do you want to be rich? Do you want to make $600,000 a year?”

“All you have to do is write this, this, and that in your name.”

She implied that Jen tried to involve her in the cheating scheme.

Monica revealed that she was “confused” by the whole situation, so she called her Secret Service friend.

Her friend said, “Get the fuck off Jen Shaw. She’s going to jail.”

This conversation took place two months before Jen’s arrest on the Bravo show.

Because of this conversation, Monica eventually became a witness at Jen’s trial.


The US Sun exclusively revealed Jens Bravo paychecks could go to her victims.

Shed Media, Inc., the production company of RHOSLC, will pay court clerk Jen’s salary from the show, according to the government’s request.

The wages will be used as $6,695,466 in compensation for the victims of their fraudulent telemarking scheme.

The settlement notice said: “Namely 25 percent of her disposable income from the date of sentencing (January 10, 2023) to her surrender date (February 17, 2023).

“Shed Media, INC will release 75 percent of retained earnings between January 10 and February 17, 2023 to Shah.

“During Shah’s incarceration (February 18, 2023, until his scheduled release date of August 30, 2028), Shed Media, Inc. will pay 100% of any periodic payment due or owing to Shah to the clerk.

“If, upon release from custody, income or income is required for necessary and reasonable subsistence, Shed Media, Inc. will pay 15% of gross monthly earnings or 25% of disposable income, whichever is greater.”


Court filings exclusive to the US show The Sun show Jen’s attorney asked to have her dropped for not paying the benefits.

Jens’s attorney, Priya Chaudhry, filed a request to resign as counsel for the defendant on March 24.

According to the court filing, “ChaudhryLaw is seeking to resign as counsel for defendants because the client failed to pay the fees and expenses owed to the firm in breach of her contract with the firm.”

Priya claimed Jen entered into a payment agreement with her law firm on July 12, 2021.

To date, part of the fee is “unresolved” as it allegedly owes the company costs associated with “Discovery’s digital hosting with an outside provider.”

The court filings further said, “The Company has made multiple attempts to collect the defendant’s outstanding fees and expenses, including six times since July 2022.”
