Jen Shah Drags Andy Cohen After Surrendering To Prison
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah is clapping back at Andy Cohen after he confirmed she’s responsible for Heather Gay’s infamous black eye.
Jen Shah’s rep told Life & Style that the former RHOSLC star, 49, “chooses to focus this time with her family” instead of these allegations.
“I personally know that she has not spoken to Andy Cohen since before the reunion where he called her directly to beg her to attend the RHOSLC [season] 3 reunion,” her rep continues. “That, coupled with the fact that we passed on the [one-on-one interview] six times seems to be where his aggressions lie.”
Jen Shah was scheduled to have a one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen about the aftermath of her prison sentence but she canceled, and announced that she would be telling her story, her way.
On January 6, Jen Shah was sentenced to 6.5 years in prison for a telemarketing fraud scheme that largely targeted the elderly. The Bravo star is set to report to prison on Friday, February 17.
“I will not be doing the 1:1 with Andy Cohen and Bravo because of their unwillingness to remove contractual provisions that would allow the network to legally make misrepresentations of me and my story, relating to any and all topics, prior to and during the course of my participation,” she shared in an Instagram post on January 6. “The specific 1 on 1 interview was not part of my RHOSLC reality TV contract. I promised myself and my loving family that I would not allow this portion of my life to be sensationalized or inaccurately conveyed.”
Jen continued, writing that “too many people have been hurt by my actions and my inability to control my own narrative,” telling followers that she would “rather remain silent and wait until I am able to accurately share my story.”
Jen’s rep made these comments one day after Vanderpump Rules stars Lala Kent and Katie Maloney appeared on Watch What Happens Live, Wednesday, February 15. They all speculated with Andy about Heather’s black eye, and Andy pinned it on Jen.
“I think it’s from a cast member,” Lala shared. Andy added, “From Jen Shah? I do too. I don’t think she hit her head on a cabinet and got scratches on her arm.”
Heather claimed that during the cast’s trip to San Diego last month, she was “blacked out” and that she “didn’t know” why she woke up with a black eye. While some of the RHOSLC stars also speculated that there was an incident involving Jen, the Bad Mormon author, 50, explained that there was “no way to hide” the injury.
“I went to my thing which is just humor, and just make it go away, and it didn’t go away … But I certainly do not want to implicate anyone here, anyone on production,” she added. “It’s my own guilt and shame about blacking out and not being able to explain it.”
