Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah wants her fraud case dropped after two talkative federal agents sat down with Hulu and spilled the tea on her alleged telemarketing scheme and arrest.
According to new legal documents, the Bravo star claims Homeland Security agents Rick Patel and Agnieszka Norman disclosed private details about the investigation that weren't made public. She alleges their commentary about the "lavish lifestyle" of "fraudsters" painted the wrong picture.
Shah points out two specific comments made by the agents in Hulu's The Housewife & The Shah Shocker that she takes issue with. The RHOSLC star says agent Norman made "highly prejudicial" statements about her allegedly stashing money in offshore accounts.
When it comes to agent Patel, Shah claims he spilled on the circumstances surrounding her arrest.
She argues the jury pool is now tainted over what the agents said in the documentary. Shah wants the entire case thrown out.
As Radar reported, the housewife was arrested by the FBI in March. Shah was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. She's been accused of running a massive telemarketing scheme and ripping off hundreds of alleged victims — including the elderly.
She has denied any wrongdoing.
Her assistant and righthand man Stuart Smith was also arrested in connection to the alleged telemarking scheme. While Shah has always maintained her innocence, Stuart admitted to hiding money and lying under oath last week.
He pled guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, money laundering, and obstructing an official proceeding. Stuart's decision has everyone wondering what that means for his former boss.
It didn't help when Hulu dug up Shah's RHOSLC audition tape where she brags about spending $60,000 a month. Radar did the math and that's $600,000 per year.
Hulu's documentary about the reality star-turned-alleged criminal began airing on Monday. Shah's fraud trial is scheduled to start in March 2022 unless her demand gets granted.
