RHOSLC's Jen Shah Suggests Bravo is Hypocritical For Not Cutting Ties With Teresa Giudice, Launches Website to Speak Her "Truth," and Feels Industry Mistreats Polynesians

Jen Shah is taking aim at Bravo for the way they’ve handled her legal scandal, versus the way they handled that of Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Teresa Giudice.

Years after Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, were convicted of fraud and spent time behind bars, the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star, who pled guilty to fraud in July 2022 and will begin serving a 6.5-year prison term next month, “liked” a Twitter post accusing the network of hypocrisy.

“It doesn’t sit right with me that [Bravo] cut ties with [RHOSLC]’s Jen Shah but when [Teresa Giudice] and Joe Giudice were convicted they put the [RHONJ] on hold, gave her a whole special [Teresa Checks In], and doubled down on centering the show around her,” the January 17 tweet read.

Amid Wednesday’s first half of the RHOSLC season three reunion, Jen took to her Instagram page to announce the launch of her “Dear Jen Shah” website, where she plans to speak her “truth.”

“Thank you to my loyal fans who have remained supportive through this tough, yet very enlightening time in my life. With the strength of my husband, children, close family, and friends — I am ready to tell my true story without any misrepresentations or editing present,” she shared. “Please visit DearJenShah.com and subscribe as I tell my truth, and give you an inside look into the real Jen Shah.”

Following the announcement, Jen seemingly shaded Bravo further with a post from one of her fans, who spotlighted the entertainment industry’s reported racism against Polynesians.

“The entertainment industry that is Hollywood will never look out for the best interests of anyone, let alone Polynesians. Which is why I advocate for creating our own platforms where we can tell our stories without censorship. we love and support you Jen,” their message stated.

Although Jen has presumably been fired from RHOSLC, Bravo has not yet made any official announcements in regard to her future participation. And after the network planned to feature her in a one-on-one special with Andy Cohen, it was Jen who announced she was backing out due to editing concerns.

“This specific 1 on 1 interview was not part of my RHOSLC reality tv contract. I promised myself and my loving family that I would never allow this part of my life to be sensationalized or inaccurately conveyed,” she wrote in an Instagram statement, explaining that people had already “been hurt” by her inability “to control [her] own narrative.”

“I would rather remain silent and wait until I am able to accurately share my story than continue having complete lies and misrepresentations about me smeared across the headlines,” she added.

Part two of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City‘s season three reunion airs next Wednesday, February 1, at 8/7c on Bravo.
