As the season 2 trailer dropped for The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, fans watched as Jen Shah pointed the finger at Meredith Marks, claiming she ratted her out to authorities. Shah is known to use her outbursts to divert attention, but this accusation seems a bit out there to fans, even for Shah.
Bravo viewers first met Shah and the rest of the Utah natives last year during season 1. Shah made it known that she was not above stirring the pot and placing herself in the center of all the drama. Her tantrums were often judged by her fellow cast members and fans who felt she would overreact at the slightest issues. She fought with pretty much every housewife on the show, including Mary Cosby, because she accused her of smelling like a “hospital.” Towards the end of the season, Shah even turned on her best friend, Heather Gay. But now, she has more pressing matters. She had been accused of partaking in a telemarketing scheme by the federal government.
Shah was seen yelling at Marks across a dinner table during the explosive trailer, blaming her for her predicament. Marks stayed calm and told her to sit back down and be quiet. Whitney Rose decided to pop in and point out the possible betrayal by saying, “It looks like you may have had something to do with the fact that Jen was indicted.” A second snippet shows Gay asking how the feds knew Shah was at her business, Beauty Lab, again insinuating someone tipped them off. While there is no context, Bravo fans think it was where Shah was arrested.
The trailer outburst from Shah implies that Marks gave up sensitive information to help the feds pursue her frenemy. A secondary scene also shows Lisa Barlow, who is known to be close with Marks pointing out that her best friend has “a lot of information” since she was privy to conversations that the group was aware of. Naturally, Shah flies off the handle, which only makes her look more guilty, and calls Marks “disgusting.”
Shah is in a heap of trouble since her lawyer abandoned her legal case, and her beloved assistant has decided to testify against her to save himself. The mother of two was spotted in New York City at a federal court last week for a hearing. The 47-year-old didn’t seem phased as she wore big glasses and a matching designer outfit. Needless to say, there are plenty of storylines to explore on season 2 of the show.
Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City premieres at 9pm EST on Bravo.
