Bravo will continue to film Jen Shah’s legal drama after fraud arrest plus Andy Cohen breaks his silence on Jen’s shocking arrest!
Per Page Six, Bravo is planning to make Jen Shah’s arrest for fraud and money laundering a central part of the second season of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City – including footage of Jen being arrested by the feds.
“Bravo knows full well that viewers are following every detail of this case and will continue to do so as it progresses, so producers plan to follow it just as closely and use whatever footage they legally can,” the insider said. “So far, they have filmed the lead-up to and aftermath of Jen’s arrest as well as her costars’ reactions, of course.”
Jen is currently out on a $1M bond and can resume filming for RHOSLC. Bravo sees this as a chance for HUGE ratings.
“It’s rare that Bravo has a big hit like ‘RHOSLC’ on its hands right out of the gate, and the team hoped to continue that momentum when production for Season 2 began,” the insider noted. “Now, with the news of Jen’s arrest, they are sure to have even more success than they imagined, especially since Jen hopes to continue shooting if Bravo and her lawyers allow it. She can only say so much, however, as it remains an ongoing case.”
Meanwhile, Andy Cohen recently broke his silence on Jen’s shocking arrest during an episode of his radio show, Radio Andy.
“Oy vey,” Andy said when a fan asked his thoughts on Jen’s legal drama during Monday’s episode of “Radio Andy.”
He added, “I’m waiting to see how it plays out. I have nothing to add to what we already know, other than I certainly hope and pray that none of it is true.”
RHOSLC will return to Bravo for season 2 in late 2021.
