The drama continues for Jen. Earlier this week, an audio clip of the meltdown first appeared on Twitter. In the audio, a woman who appeared to be Jen could be heard screaming and cursing at the people around her. It was believed to have been shot around the time of the “RHOSLC” reunion when Jen was having issues getting her dress for the taping on time.
In the short clip. the reality star can be heard screaming at her team “shut the fuck up.” She added, “get your shit bitch I don’t care…you have a fucking place to lay your fucking head because you’re in my house. You don’t be disrespectful.”
Days later, a video of the incident has been released to show it was indeed Jen on the tape. She can be heard going off on her former dress designer, Koa Johnson.
She also calls one woman working for her a “fucking bitch” and tells Koa to handle it. She yells, “Don’t have a fucking attitude” and “shut the fuck up.”
Jen is seen throwing items at the wall during the altercation.
The designer, Koa Johnson, spoke out after alleged audio of Jen leaked online. He wrote, “First of all I would like to address all of the kind words and support from everyone who reached out. Secondly, I’ve been made aware of a recording that is circulating which involved my previous employer, I have been asked to clarify the context …”
He said, “However, I would like to be clear of what is important here. Regardless of the reason, there is no excuse for anyone (especially in the workplace) to talk to a person that way.”
Koa denied leaking the video writing, “I don’t know who released the audio, but I’m glad they did because now I feel like I can finally speak about my experience.”
The designer said, “I’ve been protecting this woman for way too long. Let’s state FACTS.” He said he was brought to Utah to design custom couture and gowns for the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star. He wrote, “In the ten months I spent working, I have been verbally assaulted, I had to work all hours, through the night, mostly unpaid.”
One fan said, “I thought Jen Shah was exaggerating her outbursts just for the show, turns out she’s like that irl too.”
