The Big Daddy of Bravo, Andy Cohen, was just as shocked as fans to learn that Jen Shah had pleaded guilty in her federal fraud case.
Andy addressed the news on Tuesday’s episode of “Radio Andy” on Sirius XM and admitted that he was still processing Jen’s guilty plea.
“I don’t know how to feel about this, Jen Shah pleading guilty,” Andy explained, adding that he wasn’t ready to dub the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star “guilty” just yet.
“All it means is she’s changing her plea,” he said. Andy explained that he was even more shocked by Jen’s change of plea because she had just his 2-mont-old daughter, Lucy, a gift.
“I was like, ‘Jen Shah, with everything you have going on, that you thought to send Lucy a gift…’ I just thought that was so nice of her,” Andy noted.
He added, “What I’ve found regarding viewer response to some of these moments that have happened [is that] some of the viewers are more outraged when there are — you know when you look at Tom Girardi and what it looks like he did — actual victims that you can look at. When you look at Joe Giudice defrauding the government of some tax money, I think you wind up getting more upset when you know that there are victims.”
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is currently filming season 3.
