What you need to know about the sentencing of “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” cast member Jen Shah

  • What did Shah do? In July, she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud for running a telemarketing scheme that defrauded elderly people out of thousands of dollars.
  • She was sentenced Friday before U.S. District Court Judge Sidney Stein. The government had requested 10 years in prison while Shah’s lawyers sought a three-year term.
  • Since "The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" debuted in 2020, Shah has flaunted her wealth on the show by throwing lavish parties and buying expensive clothes.
  • It's been a "Shah-mazing" ride: Following her March 2021 arrest, Shah insisted that she was innocent and used as her tagline to Season 2: “The only thing I’m guilty of is being Shah-mazing.” Federal authorities used that line against Shah in sentencing papers, claiming it showed that she was mocking the system.
