Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah is calling out her former co-star Jennie Nguyen after the axed "housewife" attempted to blame her team for the racist posts shared on her Facebook account.

Nguyen was let go by the Bravo network Tuesday after her offensive social media posts resurfaced.

On Wednesday, Shah decided to tell her side of the story, claiming Nguyen isn't telling the truth.

"She's lying and she already admitted to my face she posted each and every one of those disgusting posts HERSELF," Shah wrote on Instagram. "The fact she brings a Black man on her IG Live just confirms she has not learned nor is she sorry."

Shah said she wishes Nguyen would learn from this experience.

"This is Performative Slacktivism at its finest. (No Slacktivism wasn't a typo)," she continued. "I hope Jennie can do the real work it will take to grow and change her racist, and islamophobic views."

Earlier this week, Nguyen was fired from RHOSLC after only being featured for one season.

"Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen, and she will no longer be a cast member of 'the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,'" the statement read. "We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention. Moving forward, we will work to improve our processes to ensure we make a better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions."

Nguyen later took to Instagram Live to address the situation. She pointed fingers at her team, insinuating they may have shared the posts that contained phrases like "BLM Thugs" and "Violent Gangs."

"I just want you to understand that, during that time, I had a team of people that [were] helping me," she explained. "Whether they posted [or] I posted, it doesn't really matter at his point. For me, it's on my account, and I take full responsibility and accountability for what was posted."

Unfortunately, Nguyen wasn't the first cast member from the show to cause controversy. Shah —who was the first to condemn Nguyen's act— is also under fire after being charged with conspiring to commit wire fraud and money laundering. She was arrested in March 2021.

Meanwhile, their other co-star Mary Cosby was also accused of running a cult and making racist remarks towards her cast members on the franchise, including Jennie.
