As the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” cast member prepares for her upcoming court date in October, Gay spoke out about the shocking turn of events, which has reportedly impacted her entire Utah community.
According to Gay, Shah’s legal drama it the biggest that thing that’s ever happened to Shah.

“What I can say is this is the biggest, hugest thing that has happened to our community, and to our group of friends, and to Jen personally, and to me personally,” Gay explained. “I mean, this is big, and it’s real.”
“It’s all very, very real, but it’s also hyper-realized. I don’t think anything’s bigger or more hyper-realized than a federal indictment or your friend facing prison,” she continued. “Like, this is hyper-realized drama, but it’s real, and it’s happening.”

“Everything plays out in real-time,” Gay noted. “We are in it with her. We are going through it as friends, [and] as people who for the first time in [our] lives are public figures.”

“And for the first time in [our] lives, we have to answer to not only [our] family and friends, but to a worldwide audience, and to also see [our] trials and struggles played out and subject to public opinion,” Gay added.
In the months since Shah was taken into custody, she’s continued to maintain her presence on social media and actually promoted the “Free Jen Shah” campaign.
In addition to Gay speaking out about Shah and the legal situation she’s found herself in, Brooks Marks, the designer son of Meredith Marks, addressed the topic on an episode of “Watch What Happens Live” last month.
