Jen Shah has found a new way to earn money amid her legal trouble. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star has joined Cameo to charge fans to chat.
Jen Shah appears to have found a new hustle amid her legal trouble. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star recently announced her addition to the Cameo app where she’s charging fans $99 for a video chat. Her new revenue stream comes as she faces upwards of 30 years in prison for charges stemming from a shady telemarketing scheme.
The cast, crew, and show fans were left shocked when word got out of Jen’s arrest during filming for a season 2 scene. The new Bravo star was taken into police custody and charged with felony wire fraud and money laundering due to her alleged involvement in a nationwide telemarketing scam. Jen and her assistant Stuart Smith are accused of selling lead lists where elderly people were targeted and sold services they never received. Since pleading not guilty to the charges, Jen has been placed on a spending punishment and prevented from leaving the state of Utah. On social media, she has resorted to reposting #FreeJen memes and acting unbothered to the serious charges.

With her telemarketing business being shut down, Jen apparently has had to find new revenue streams to maintain her glam lifestyle. The Shah Squad leader recently set up a profile on Cameo and is charging users $99 for videos and $2.99 for direct messages. In one promo video, she said she would be wishing paying customers a “Shah-mazing day!,” as captured by The Sun. After launching her profile, she received one review from a follower who told her “Thank you.” It’s possible that fans could be reluctant to shell out nearly $100 for a video from the controversial show star.
Following her indictment, a federal prosecutor called her and Smith out for their alleged illegal business dealings. The business partners were accused of generating and selling “‘lead lists’ of innocent individuals for other members of their scheme to repeatedly scam,” the prosecutor said. “In actual reality and as alleged, the so-called business opportunities pushed on the victims by Shah, Smith, and their co-conspirators were just fraudulent schemes, motivated by greed, to steal victims’ money.” The Bravo cameras were rolling when Jen was picked up by police.
Cast members Heather Gay, Meredith Marks, and Mary Cosby were reportedly in attendance. Jen is still filming for season two and is expected to finish out the next season. She’s hinted at feeling some type of way towards her co-stars. But there isn’t much information on why. She was known for creating issues with the other housewives throughout season 1. By the reunion, she was the only cast member who managed to strike up a feud with every other housewife. It looks like drama is all Jen knows.
