Shah is charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Federal agents also arrested and charged her personal assistant, Stuart Smith. He originally pleaded not guilty but has since reached a plea deal. Per the agreement, he promised to turn over all information he had about the case.

As previously reported, Shah is asking for footage from RHOSLC to not be presented as evidence in court. Her defense claims the footage does "not have any of the indicia of reliability," and the episodes are "highly edited and crafted through post-production."

Her legal went on to claim the clips, "would have to fall under one of the exceptions to the hearsay rule of evidence, as they are, by definition, out-of-court statements."

Shah has been trying to wiggle her way out of this case through any available avenue. She's even gone as far as to claim that the presumption of innocence in her case has been shattered by a recently released Hulu documentary and that a fair trial in the case has become impossible.

Shah claims that two special agents from the Department Of Homeland Security were "unduly open" about the investigation in the documentary released back in December and she believes that the case should be dismissed altogether.

A judge denied Shah's request and the trial is moving forward as planned.
