“Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Jen Shah had a laundry list of items to take care of after getting released from jail on a slew of very serious charges, but the reality star decided it was time to get her hair done. Shah appeared back on Instagram hours after she was released from custody and made a stop at SilkPressCity Hair & Beauty in Salt Lake City.
Along with a fresh look, the “RHOSLC” star appeared to be unbothered while she and her assistant faced wire fraud conspiracy and money-laundering conspiracy charges in Utah.
Jen Shah appeared back on social media, but not on her own channel. The Bravo reality star was seen on the Instagram Stories of master hairstylist, Endo, who revealed a new look for the recently freed Shah.
“Baby fresh out and had to come get laid and slayed by the silkpress queen of Utah,” Endo captioned her video of Shah posing for the camera and flipping out her blue hair.
The video was also captioned with some poignant hashtags, including “#UNARRESTED” and “#PRIORITIES”.
Another photo showed Jen Shah literally kicked back on a couch while she checked her phone, seeming completely relaxed while facing potential years away in prison.
According to the charges laid out in a lengthy indictment by the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, Shah and her assistant, Stuart Smith, allegedly “carried out a wide-ranging telemarketing scheme that defrauded hundreds of victims throughout the United States, many of whom were over age 55,” by selling them “business services.”
The release from officials alleges 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.”
“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,” Special Agent-in-Charge Peter C. Fitzhugh said in a statement.
Both Shah and her assistant are facing over 30 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
