Heather Gay nonetheless has Jen Shah’s again.
Gay, 38, defended “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” co-star Shah, 47, in a brand new interview after Shah was arrested in March and charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
“I think that good people can do bad things, and she is claiming she is innocent,” Gay mentioned on the June 2 episode of the “So Bad It’s Good With Ryan Bailey” podcast. “Even if she gets … wrongfully convicted, she can make things right. She can redeem herself.”
Shah and her assistant Stuart Smith — who was featured on the Bravo sequence — had been arrested for allegedly collaborating in a telemarketing rip-off that focused the aged for nearly a decade. The rip-off was mentioned to have spanned over six completely different states.
While Shah faces as much as 30 years in jail, Gay was adamant about giving her castmate a second probability, saying on the podcast, “I guess I am passionate about second chances because … when I got divorced, I didn’t have a second chance. And that sucks, you know.”
Page Six beforehand reported that Bravo cameras were rolling during Shah’s arrest and can proceed to seize as a lot of the drama as potential.

While the costs towards Shah are critical, Bravo honchos imagine having the authorized case on the forefront of the present’s upcoming second season will make viewers tune in.
“With the news of Jen’s arrest, they are sure to have even more success than they imagined, especially since Jen hopes to continue shooting if Bravo and her lawyers allow it,” the insider added. “She can only say so much, however, as it remains an ongoing case.”
