Jen Shah sobs at prospect of jail time in new RHOSLC trailer

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’s second season is delving into the murky legal woes of Jen Shah, who was arrested in March over her alleged involvement in a $5million telemarketing scheme.

A teaser for the new series was unveiled Friday, that sees Jen, 47, sobbing as she admits to being terrified over the prospect of serving jail time. 

‘Do you know how f***ing scared I am?’ she tells her husband Sharrieff Shah in the clip, adding that she might not see her two sons Sharrieff Jr. and Omar ‘for eight years.’

The Bravo reality star has been accused of allegedly targeting ‘vulnerable, often elderly, working-class people’ out of money in a wire fraud scam, and actually faces up to 30 years jail time. 

As it appears many of the housewives turn against Jen, she is seen having lunch with Heather Gay, telling her: ‘I need a friend right now.’

Later in the teaser, Jen – who has a pre-trial conference date set for October 8 – fights with Meredith Marks over the scandal as the housewives try to play the blame game.

‘It looks like you might have something to do with the fact that Jen was indicted,’ Whitney Rose says to Meredith. 

An angry Jen is then seen screaming in Meredith’s face, raging: ‘I swear to God, if you have anything to do with the bulls*** charges against me, Meredith, you’re f***ing disgusting.’

The pair are seen getting up in one another’s faces, as Jen angrily points her finger at Meredith shouting in a very tense exchange between the pair.

‘Get out of my face,’ Meredith hits back, adding: ‘I’m out, I’m disengaging.’

‘You’re f***ing fraudulent,’ Jen says richly. As Meredith walks away, she quips before slamming the door: ‘Who’s calling who a fraud? Love you baby, bye.’

The sound effect of the door closing – added by show producers – sounds similar to that of a jail cell being slammed shut.

At the end of the clip, Jen’s lawyer tells her ominously: ‘The U.S. Attorney’s Office is no joke.’

However, perhaps not quite grasping the severity of the situation, Jen replies: ‘Do we need to add Kim Kardashian to our legal team?’

Earlier this week, Shah filed a motion for the case against her to be dismissed – which was denied by U.S. District Judge Sidney H. Stein. 

Shah previously claimed that she was unable to understand her Miranda rights at the time of her arrest because a dry contact lens had caused her to have blurry vision.

But the judge said in response: ‘In addition to showing Shah the Miranda waiver form, [officers] read each question aloud.’ 

Elsewhere in the teaser trailer, we see new housewife Jennie Nguyen proving to be a feisty addition to the show, as Jen Shah describes her as being ‘a little firecracker.’

Jennie is then seeing having a conversation with her husband Duy about having more children together. 

After Jennie appears not to be interested, Duy says, ‘What if we get a sister wife?’ which prompts anger in the reality star who walks away saying ‘I’m pissed.’ 

Tensions are also brewing between Jen and Meredith’s son Brooks.

Brooks reveals to his mother: ‘Jen continued to like tweets about me. She liked a tweet saying, ‘I want Jen to slap Brooks and call him a sissy b****.’ 

In a separate argument, Meredith raises her voice at Jen, saying: ‘I can’t listen to the projecting, deflecting and lying anymore,’ while Jen yells back: ‘I’m trying to defend my f***ing vagina.’

The trailer also reveals the topic of Mary Cosby possible being a cult leader.

‘I’m like God, I worship the God in me,” Mary says to Lisa Barlow. 

Lisa is then speaking with a man who has a conspiracy theory about Mary, saying: ‘Is it a cult? Yes. Does she call herself God? Yes.’

Season two of RHOSLC airs on Sep. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
