The spotlight continues to shine brightly on Jen Shah but not for the reasons she’d like.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star’s fraud scandal will be investigated in a new documentary from Hulu and ABC News.
In March 2021, Jen was arrested and was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. She maintains her innocence. Her trial was initially slated to begin in October 2021, but in August, a judge postponed the trial until March 2022.
The mother of two and her assistant, Stuart Smith, allegedly “orchestrated” and were “senior participants” in a telemarketing fraud scheme against the elderly that untimely led to their arrest.
The Housewife & the Shah Shocker, premiering Nov. 29 will take a deep dive into the shocking accusations against Jen. The documentary will feature interviews with alleged victims of Jen’s telemarketing scheme as well as Jen’s friends, employees, and family members.
“When you think of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, I’m sorry, it’s the Jen Shah show,” one of the interviewees said in the trailer.
“She was giving us the money, she was giving us the looks, it seemed like she was the prime housewife,” another adds.
Another notes, “We’ve seen a lot of things on The Real Housewives, but we’ve never seen anybody be arrested.”

Court documents claim Jen and Smith were “responsible for orchestrating the broader scheme” and “supplying the leads that sustained” the telemarketing companies that in return prayed on elderly customers. They allegedly engaged in the nationwide telemarketing scheme between 2012 and March of this year.
Jen’s arrest was captured on camera by Bravo and aired in a recent episode of the show’s second season.
The Housewife & the Shah Shocker will be available to stream on Nov. 29 via Hulu.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
