RHOSLC's Jen Shah slammed for 'LYING' before fraud arrest & saying her husband was 'hospitalized for internal bleeding'
REAL Housewives Of Salt Lake City’s Jen Shah was slammed for “lying” during her arrest and telling her costars her husband was “hospitalized for internal bleeding.”
On tonight’s explosive Bravo episode, fans finally saw the moment the cast was swarmed by Homeland Security officers to take the reality star into custody for her ongoing wire fraud scandal.
The March 2021 event aired on tonight’s RHOSLC with the arrest happening just minutes before the women were supposed to head to Vail, Colorado for a group trip.
Gathered in the parking lot of Heather Gay’s Beauty Lab & Laser center, Jen, 47, sat on the charter bus with her gal pals as production packed up the equipment.
While on the bus, Jen got a call and immediately acted frazzled while heard saying: “I need to go to the house?”
The self-proclaimed marketing expert then asked costar Whitney Rose, 34, to turn of her microphone.
Whitney complied as Jen expressed a very worried facial expression before exiting the bus.
She talked to someone on the phone for several minutes before coming back to tell the group she needed to go.
Jen nervously told her costars: “I have some bad news. I just got a phone call and [her husband] Sharrieff Sr. is in the hospital so I’ve got to go.
“I need to go there. He had an appointment and he has internal bleeding and they’re not sure if they’ll need surgery.
“I don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know what’s wrong. But you guys go.”

The TV personality then drove off in a truck quickly as Whitney, Heather, Lisa Barlow and Jennie Nguyen decide if they should continue with the trip or not.
As they are discussing with producers if they should stay for Jen, members of the Homeland Security Investigation unit swarm the parking lot.
They enter the bus and ask for Jen – only to be told she said she was going to the hospital for her husband’s health emergency.
Once they realize what’s happening, Whitney – who at first thought the ordeal was a prank – insists “so it has nothing to do with her husband,” to which Lisa, 45, agreed and said “no.”
There have been no reports or records made public to indicate Sharrieff was hospitalized on this day.
Heather, 47, spoke to FBI officers to attempt to understand what was going on but they simply said they “just want to make sure Jen’s okay,” offering no other details.
“I’m scared of the po-po in general but this gave me pause,” Heather said.
While Lisa added of the unexpected visitors: “You guys, I’m going to puke. I’m literally going to puke.”
'JEN'S A PATHELOGICAL LIAR'
Fans of the reality show are furious Jen appeared to lie about her husband – and an alleged “fake” health scare – in order to leave before the feds showed up.
"Not Jen Shah lying on her husband, saying he’s in the hospital with internal bleeding, as the fed are looking for her scamming a**," one person tweeted.
Another said: "Not Jen lying about her husband having internal bleeding as an excuse to make a quick exit. Girl… you could have just left instead of putting that s**t out into the universe. That’s a new low."
A third wrote: "Not Jen Scams lying to the girls about internal bleedings when the FBI is really on her a**."
One more fired off: "You know that Jen is a cold-blooded liar because she had not hesitation sending Sharif sr. to the hospital with internal bleeds. That’s a 0-60, off the top rope lie."
While hundreds, if not thousands, of shocked viewers tweeted Jen is a "pathological liar" who is "not even a good or smart liar."
NATIONWIDE FRAUD SCHEME
Jen has been married to University Of Utah football coach Sharrieff. for over 26 years and share Sharrieff Shah Jr., 27, and Omar Shah, 18, together.
Back in March, Jen was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud in a "telemarketing scheme."
In addition to Jen, police arrested her assistant, Stuart Smith, – who is also featured on the show.
They were each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.
According to legal documents, they are accused of targeting senior citizens to scam them out of money in their alleged scheme.
If found guilty following the ongoing investigation, they could each potentially face up to 30 years in prison.
Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City airs on Sunday's at 9pm E.T. on Bravo.
