Jen, 49, gave one final interview before giving up, speaking to her prison counsel Justin Paperny of White Collar Advice.

During the chat, the reality TV personality revealed that the two things that will get her into jail are a Koran and her “release plan.”

Jen was raised a Mormon but later converted to Islam after meeting her husband Sharrieff.

Using her “release plan” that she devised with White Collar Advice counselors, Jen will work to turn her sentence into a “hopeful” experience and outline the steps for life after prison.

“I come in with an 18-page release schedule that has 11 different sections. I have results in the release schedule.” she shared.

I will log the experience, document everything.

“This is not only my roadmap, but what will hold me accountable for everything I said to the judge at sentencing to restore these victims to health.”

Jen has vowed to pay back “every penny” to her victims, most of whom are over the age of 55, after she was found guilty of conspiracy to wire fraud related to telemarketing and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

As Jen prepared to surrender on Friday, her rep told The US Sun on behalf of the star, “I surrender to serve a sentence in federal prison today. This is the price I have to pay for the bad decisions I’ve made. people got hurt because of my decisions. While I am incarcerated, I will work to make amends and be reconciled with the victims of my crime.

“In time, I pray that people will judge me for how I reacted to this verdict, and not just for the decisions that got me into prison. I will publish my work and make the path transparent and invite others to hold me accountable. I believe in earning freedom and I will work towards that goal by making things right with the people I’ve hurt.”

“Her journey will be full of challenges, but with the unwavering love and support of her family and friends, Jen is ready to face those challenges head on and emerge from this experience a better person who will have a positive impact on others.”
