‘Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City’: Tamara Judge and Andy Cohen Give Their Take On Jennifer Shah’s Arrest
Jennifer had been arrested on set, much to the horror of everyone involved. While Jennifer has denied some of the charges in court, a trial is due to take place in October, which has become the talking point of everyone involved. That is where Tamara has chimed in on Jennifer’s conduct. In an interview on the RealiTea with Derek Z show, she spoke on how people must wait for all the facts before making a judgement.
She said: “I don’t know a lot about the case … I’d like to say she’s innocent until proven guilty.” Some of the facts that have come to light, though, have been startling. Several law enforcement agencies have claimed that Jennifer had willingly engaged in corrupt practices in order to maximise profit at the expense of legality. Case in point, C Fitzhugh. He was the HSI Agent heading the investigation.
In response to the evidence, he said: “As alleged, disturbingly, Shah and Smith objectified their very real human victims as ‘leads’ to be bought and sold, offering their personal information for sale to other members of their fraud ring.” Given that this has been made public, Tamara queried why Jennifer would appear on a show if she knew she was engaging in underhanded schemes.
She added: “If you’re doing illegal stuff, you’re an idiot. If you’re doing illegal stuff and go on a reality show, you’re a special type of idiot. … Why go on reality TV if you’re doing criminal acts? You’re just asking for it.” The franchise’s talk show host, Andy also got in on the act. He was rather diplomatic, which is understandable in light of the cancel culture that has been plaguing celebrities in recent times.
We only have to look at Chris Harrison’s response to Rachael Kirkconnell as an example. In an appearance on his SiriusXM show, he said: “I’m waiting to see how it plays out. I have nothing to add to what we already know, other than I certainly hope and pray that none of it is true.”
