Did Jen Shah Ironically Compare Herself to Teresa Giudice Before Arrest?
Apparently, “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Jen Shah took to Twitter making a comparison to New Jersey Housewive Teresa Giudice.
Oh, how interesting that is since Jen Shah too has now been arrested for fraud.
Just months before her own arrest, “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Jen Shah ironically compared herself to convicted felon and fellow “Housewife” Teresa Giudice.

CelebnReality247.com reports that back in a September 2020 tweet, Shah responded to a photo of herself getting angry during a group lunch, not unlike Giudice’s infamous table-flipping scene in the early days of “Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
Jen joked at the time:
Teresa walked, so I could run.
On Tuesday, Shah, 47, and her assistant Stuart Smith, 43, were arrested for allegedly ripping off hundreds of victims in a telemarketing scheme. They were charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
They could face up to 30 years in prison, according to the court docs.
Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent-in-Charge Peter Fitzhugh said in a statement:
Shah and Smith flaunted their lavish lifestyle to the public as a symbol of their ‘success.’ In reality, they allegedly built their opulent lifestyle at the expense of vulnerable, often elderly, working-class people.
According to the indictment, the pair sold fake business services, including tax preparation, coaching sessions, and website design services, to people, many of whom were over the age of 55.
Jen has since posted bail. They’re expected to appear before a judge on Tuesday afternoon.
A rep for Shah declined to comment on the arrest.
Back in 2014, Teresa Giudice, 48, was sentenced to 15 months in prison on fraud charges because of her husband Joe Giudice’s fraud-related crimes. She served just under a year of time at a federal prison in Danbury, Conn. during that time Teresa’s mother passed away, Joe served 41-months and was deported. She and Joe distanced themselves and then were officially divorced in September. Teresa has moved on with her new man Luis Ruelas.
There is no comparison, Teresa was clueless about her husband’s activity, Jen Shah was the mastermind behind hers. She is more like Joe Giudice.
