RHOSLC’s Jen Shah expresses shock during explosive reunion despite being fired by Bravo after serving her jail sentence
JEN Shah has stunned fans by making a surprise appearance at RHOSLC reunion after her Bravo shot.
The TV personality previously said she would not be on the show due to advice from her legal team.
Part one of the Real Housewives Reunion aired on Tuesday with only Meredith Marks, Heather Gay, Whitney Rose and Lisa Barlow sitting on the couches with host Andy Cohen.
Addressing Jen’s absence, Andy said: “We invited her to be here but unfortunately her legal department advised her not to come today.”
Later in the episode, however, Jen made a surprise appearance — via phone call.
The shocking moment came during a tense discussion of rumors being perpetuated by Lisa about Meredith.
Andy pointed to a moment earlier this season when Lisa accused Meredith of “taking pills.”
She said during the reunion, “Jen had told me they had taken some pills before. She told me you were both ketamine or something.”
Meredith called the allegations “disgusting” and called Jen to set the record straight after Whitney also claimed she heard the rumors from Jen.
“Hi Jen, I have you as speaker at the reunion because we have a little conflict here,” she said into the phone.

Lisa shouted, “Jen tell her how you told us they used mushrooms before [inaudible] in the hot tub.”
She added, “Ketamine and shrooms.”
Suddenly Jen’s voice could be heard from the phone in Meredith’s hand.
“Like the horse drug?” she asked, before claiming Lisa’s claims were “a lie.”
Lisa then nudged Jen nasty and said: “You don’t tell the truth all the time so I wouldn’t expect that from you now. is that what you think about me I’m not going to jail.”
Meredith added, “I had heard through the rumor mill long before I saw the episode where Lisa called me a pill popper that she said that around town.”
Lisa attacked Jen one last time, saying, “I’ve never said that before. Never. It’s funny that you think someone goes to jail for lying about me.”
SCHAH IS BACK?
Jen previously teased a possible comeback amid the drama over her decision not to perform at the RHOSLC reunion.
Shortly thereafter, she was sentenced to six and a half years in prison for a telemarketing scam that targeted elderly victims.
Days later, she took to her Instagram story to share a chic photo of herself.
She posed in a robe that hung over her shoulders.
The star sported long dangling earrings, a full face of makeup and her hair looked like it was blowing in the wind.
She captioned the post, “Rehearsal… See you soon.”
Jen included a GIF of herself wearing the same sparkly dress from her RHOSLC intro.
Fans have been buzzing about Jen’s fate at RHOSLC for some time.
Before her sentencing, it was announced that she would not be appearing at the reunion.
In December 2022, shortly after pleading guilty to her case, Jen explained the decision to her supporters.
She said at the time, “I was clear to Bravo that out of respect for the courts and a standing court order, I would not be able to discuss anything related to my legal case or my conviction.”
Jen claimed that Bravo “found this unsatisfactory and said they expected to discuss this ‘storyline.'”
She added: “This expectation has no regard for me or the well-being of my family.
“So under legal advice I will not be attending the reunion.”
In October 2022, Bravo Big Wig Andy suggested that the network cut ties with Jen after her guilty plea, saying at the time: “Once we got wrapped up [filming for season three and] She pleaded guilty, I think that sadly ended the engagement there.”
He seemed to be backing down, or at least implying that fans haven’t seen the last of Jen’s.
Andy alluded to the idea of going one-on-one with Jen, adding: “But I’m hoping to sit down with her and talk to her on camera at some point.
“Because I have many questions for you.”
Jen was sentenced to prison about a week ago.
A US Sun reporter confirmed in court that day that the Bravo personality wept hysterically as she apologized for her crimes and that her family wiped away tears as her sentence was read.
Jen was otherwise calm when her sentence was read, according to The US Sun reporter at the scene.
Her family – including her husband Sharrieff and their two sons Sharrieff Jr. and Omar, as well as several of Jen’s friends – had bowed their heads and were seen wiping away tears.
Jen sobbed as she told the court: “Elderly people have the greatest respect. I’m the oldest of six. I was raised with respect, duty, generosity, humility and loyalty. I resisted these values.
“I am deeply sorry. I would like to apologize to the victims and their families. I will work hard to raise the funds to pay them compensation. I am sincerely repentant. I promise to pay back every penny.”
Jen was arrested back in March 2021 along with her assistant, Stuart Smith.
Jen continued, “I struggled to take responsibility because I was delusional thinking I had done nothing wrong. I believed I had been manipulated. These are lies that I have manifested.
“After therapy, counseling and medication, I can see the situation. I wish I could have done better. I’m sorry.
“I found solace in volunteering with women’s rights and anti-racism.
“I’m sorry to my friends and family for the shame and embarrassment, especially my husband and sons.”
She added: “Omar mum is so sorry you were woken up at gunpoint and handcuffed,” while her sons listened, bowing their heads in celebration.
Jen concluded, “I accept the consequences. I will never go back there again. I will never break the law.
“I will change and evolve. Reading this statement will help me mend my broken heart.”
She was charged with conspiracy to wire fraud.
The TV personality was sentenced to six and a half years in prison and five years of supervised release.
She is due to report to jail at 2 p.m. on February 17.
Jen has asked to serve her sentence at a minimum security facility in Texas.
Initially, she faced up to 30 years in prison.
The Real Housewives star agreed prior to her sentencing that she would not appeal if she was sentenced to 14 months or less.
She was accused of running a telemarketing scam, along with several accomplices, targeting hundreds of elderly people in the United States.
Jen and Stuart had a “Business Opportunity Scheme” where they “sold alleged services” to make the alleged victim’s businesses more efficient or profitable.
According to court documents, this includes “tax preparations or website design services”.
The victims are “older and didn’t have a computer”.
