Earlier this week, US Weekly spoke to a source who revealed, “She’s definitely back to filming with the cast.” 

The last time Shah was known to be filming was the day of her arrest. Sources say federal agents showed up on set looking for the reality star. According to reports, the RHOSLC star booked it before the agents arrived. 

Later that day, agents tracked down Shah and took her into custody without issue.

Later that day, agents tracked down Shah and took her into custody without issue. The United States Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York announced charges against the reality star relating to wire fraud and money laundering. She entered a plea of not guilty to both counts. 

As Radar first reported, Shah recently asked the court to postpone her criminal case. The lawyers representing the RHOSLC star asked for the hearing scheduled for May 10 to be pushed till June 18. 

In a letter written to the judge, Shah’s attorneys claim to need  more time to go over the “tremendous volume” of evidence. Shah’s team revealed prosecutors handed over a large number of discovery materials they have collected while building their case against Shah. 

Shah’s lawyer explains his client was charged as part of a larger federal investigation involving numerous other defendants. He says prosecutors have obtained a large amount of evidence that he needs to review.

The lawyers claimed to “have worked diligently to familiarize ourselves with a very complex case involving a related indictment that was tried, more than two dozen defendants between both cases, and, most significantly a tremendous volume of discovery materials.” 

In court documents obtained by Radar, the federal judge granted the motion and pushed back the hearing date.
