Two days after the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star was released from jail, she scurried on back to her hairdresser to swap out her braids – which she had gotten done just hours before her Tuesday arrest – for a sleeker look.
Capturing the 47-year-old reality star running her fingers through her "silkpress," Shah's hairstylist posted videos and photos of her client "fresh out" of the slammer.
"Baby fresh out and had to come get laid and slayed by the silkpress queens of Utah," read the text, which was written over a photo of a fresh-faced Jen sporting a head-to-toe Gucci tracksuit. The accompanying hashtags: "#Unarrested #Priorities #ShahSquad."
The third and final Jen-centric Instagram Story post was a video of Coach Shah's wife lying face up on a couch, scrolling on her phone, legs crossed. The caption: "Big chillin, fresh press."
If "unbothered" were a video…
Considering Shah was ordered to:
- avoid all contact with her alleged victims, co-defendants and possible witnesses,
- prohibited from traveling outside Utah without permission,
- report to a pretrial officer on a regular basis,
- surrender her passport and agree not to apply for a new one, and
- not open any additional lines of credit or incur new credit card charges…
...we’re confident in saying the reason she got all dolled up is for Friday's court hearing and only Friday's court hearing.
As Radar has been reporting, the Bravo star and her personal assistant – her "first assistant," Stuart Smith – were arrested and hit with charges relating to wire fraud and money laundering.
New York prosecutors filed the indictment against Shah, accusing her of screwing over hundreds – now possibly thousands – of "victims" in a long-running telemarketing scam. Court documents claim Shah's alleged scheme preyed on the elderly.
Reportedly, the gist of the alleged con – which ran from 2012 to this month, per the indictment – involved Shah's company creating numerous websites that offered fake services to technologically vulnerable people. The purpose of the websites was to generate leads. Shah is accused of then selling those leads to telemarketing companies that she knew would screw over the victims. The reality star was allegedly paid a cut of the money the telemarketing companies made off scamming the names.
It's important to note that while it is legal to sell legitimately complied lead lists, it is not legal to deceive people using fake websites.
The RHOSLC star was released from jail after seeing a judge, following an hours-long stay behind bars. She was let go without bond and scheduled to appear for a hearing today.
If convicted, Shah could be sentenced to a maximum of 50 years in prison. She would be 97.
