Jen and one of her eight assistants, Stuart Smith, were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with a telemarketing scheme and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
In the same tweet, Meghan asked Bravo boss Andy Cohen for a few more answers regarding the incident, specifically if Jen's husband, Sharrieff Shah, aka Coach Shah, the father of her two children, had any idea about the alleged racket.
I cannot consume enough information about Jen Shah getting arrested!! I have texted 3 (!) journalist friends this morning about it! #RHOSLC
I assume she knew. Did coach shah know? Who needs 8 assistants? Why did she go on a reality show? How long will she go to jail for? @Andy
"I assume she knew," Meghan wrote. "Did coach shah know? Who needs 8 assistants? Why did she go on a reality show? How long will she go to jail for? @Andy"
The charges against Jen and Stuart were filed after investigators claimed a nine-year scheme involved the pair allegedly selling "services purporting to make the management of victims' businesses more efficient or profitable." Their alleged efforts were described as defrauding "hundreds of victims," whom they sold off to other telemarketing companies as "leads."
"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," said Peter C. Fitzhugh of the New York Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations in a statement.
When a fan posted a photo from "RHOSLC" of Jen about to throw a glass at a dinner party -- ala Teresa's famous table-flipping scene in an early episode of "RHONJ' -- Jen wrote, "Teresa walked, so I could run. 😂 #RHONJ #RHOSLC."
The reality star, who faces up to 50 years in prison, is set to appear in court again on Wednesday.
