Jen Shah‘s fans have something to say!
Shah, who is a cast member on the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,” received a jail sentence of 6.5 years on Friday morning, for wire fraud. The lead-up to Shah’s sentencing has been a storyline on the current season of ‘RHOSLC.’
Following her nearly seven years behind bars, the ‘Bravoleberty’ is required to have five more years of supervision, according to The Blast’s report from earlier this morning.
Shah was reportedly emotional while in court when her sentence was read, and apparently, some of her fans are feeling the feels as well!
Read on to find out how some fans are commemorating Shah’s jail sentence.
Jen Shah Plead Guilty To A Conspiracy Charge To Commit Wire Fraud
During Shah’s sentencing, prosecutors revealed the ‘RHOSLC’ star “victimized at least 10 people but presumably more all over the age of 55, a vulnerable peer group in society.”
Before her official sentencing, it was believed there was a possibility of Shah receiving up to three decades, and federal prosecutors were allegedly hoping Shah would receive at least a decade behind bars.
The judge told the courtroom he was prosecuting “the person who harmed all [of] these victims,” and not the character portrayal of Shah that Bravo viewers see on television week after week.
The judge would mention Shah’s role on the show as “simply a character. It’s acting,” he would say, referring to the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” in the same way.
Shah agreed to pay restitution up to $9.5 million as part of her plea. She would also say “With the proper medication, I can now see what happened.” (per The Blast)
Before her sentencing, Shah’s husband, Sharrief Shah Sr., would write a letter to the judge in a last-ditch effort in hopes his wife would receive “a lighter sentence.”
“Jen has never been arrested or detained for any crime,” Mr. Shah wrote, “My wife’s current legal predicament was caused by a confluence of events that came together at various points, which caused her to spiral out of control,” he alleged, per our report about his letter.
He attributed his absence as being the reason for failing to see the extent of his wife’s alleged suffering.
“Because of my absence,” Mr, Shah continued in the letter, “I was not able to see how badly my wife was suffering. As I think about it now, I saw her spending more time in our bedroom alone. She often fell asleep in our children’s bed waiting for me to come home. She would constantly tell me that she feels so alone.”

Shah’s sentencing has inspired a handful of reactions from the internet.
According to a Twitter thread posted earlier this morning, some fans had been busy editing Shah’s Wikipedia page after the news of her sentencing was released!
In the description for Shah’s biography, an unknown person wrote, “she also bout to go to jail for a LAWNG time.”
The second screenshot of Shah’s Wikipedia page included a contribution from another unknown ‘author,’ reading, “Now known as ‘Jailed Jen’ or ‘Serving Shah.’ Hide your grannies and their credit cards.”
“I like how the second person is giving her ‘Garbage Pail Kids’ names,” a Twitter user responded.
As of this writing the edits to Shah’s Wikipedia page have been deleted.
Shah was said to have felt “embarrassed and humiliated” about her legal situation being broadcast on Bravo and documented in the public eye in early 2021. Her trial was previously set to begin in March of last year before being postponed until the summer.
