Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah was arrested for alleged involvement telemarketing fraud scam. Shah has previously proposed Kim Kardashian join her legal team. She has now revealed that the proposal still stands.
If you have not been reading headlines, Kim K. is currently studying to become a Lawyer. Ahead of Jen Shah’s upcoming wire fraud and money laundering trial, she has once again reaffirmed her proposal from Kim to being on her legal counsel team.
“Listen, Kim Kardashian is not officially part of the Shah squad legal team yet. People thought I was joking around when I was like, ‘Do we need to add Kim Kardashian to our legal team?’ I was dead ass 100 serious,” Shah said on “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City After Show.”
The 48-year-old RHOLSC star expressed her respect towards Kardashian’s legal pursuit over the recent years. As you may know, Kim Kardashian has passed California’s baby bar exam despite failing it three times. She didn’t give up.
“She has been able to be an advocate and affect change for people who have been wrongly accused of crimes,” Shah continued. “They’re innocent and then she has been able to help be part of the movement to, you know, go fight for them at the White House or with [the] government to get them released.”
When Shah was arrested in March last year, she was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. She pleaded not guilty, and her trial begins March 22 in New York City.
“I was dead serious, because at this point I’m feeling like I’m wrongly accused of something,” Shah said. “I don’t know what the hell is going on — listen, do I need Kim Kardashian on my team? Because that bitch gets s–t handled.”
“I don’t take this lightly,” Shah added. “It’s my life and more importantly, it’s my family’s life. I care about them more than anything. I don’t want my kids or my husband or my mom or my family affected by this and so I have to fight and I have to have faith in the justice system.”
Shah will face up to 50 years in prison if convicted, however, she kept on maintaining her innocence. But we’ll see what happens as her trial date is rapidly approaching.
