Meredith Marks reveals that she was “offended” when Jen Shah claimed she called the feds on her.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star revealed to Page Six that she was shocked when the accusation came to light.
“There was a lot of other stuff going on that you’ll see at that dinner that I was already kind of put on guard about,” she confessed. . “And so, I was kind of really taken, initially, very much taken by surprise. And then I got kind of angry because I was like, ‘You know what? Not just Jen, but all of the women who are saying this, they all know that this investigation started in, you know, nine years ago. Like, that was public information.’”
She adds that she felt “a little bit attacked” by having so many people pointing fingers at her.
“‘Are you guys just looking for a problem with me? What’s going on here?’” Meredith recalled.
“In the moment, I think I just got really kind of upset and offended because I was just kind of like, ‘Wait, what?’” she noted. “It was so out of nowhere.”
Jen’s arrest went down while the cameras were rolling as the ladies were preparing to leave for a cast trip. Meredith was not present to witness Jen’s arrest as she was already at the cast’s destination. However, she was still shocked to hear how the ordeal went down.
“I mean, of course. Anyone you know getting arrested on some given day, you’re going to be like, ‘Wait, what?’ It’s surprising,” she admitted. “You don’t wake up in the morning and say, ‘I wonder which — who I know is getting arrested today.’”
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
