For example, Shah is reportedly teaching inmates how to  read and write to perform in a play she wrote titled,"" The Real Housewives of Bryan." Per reports, the script will revolve around fake "housewives" locked up at FC Bryan in Texas, with Shah's's manager, Chris Giovanni, sharing that the personalities of Shah's characters will be "cranked up to 11."

In May, Shah voiced her concern about the possibility of her naked pictures being taken in prison and laked after a different photo of her in the yard made the news. The reality star who believes she is the victim of a prison spy said:

"When I saw the photo and recognized the angle and location of where that photo was captured, I became immediately frightened. I strongly believe the photo was not taken from the outside near the exterior gates, but rather deep inside the compound at FPC Bryan."

Now, she thinks an even more private picture will surface online. "I am so worried that the next photo secretly taken of me could be in the shower, using the bathroom, or possibly changing my clothes," Shah confessed.
