“Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Jen Shah’s ongoing legal battle is the focus of a new ABC News Studios project, “Housewife and the Shah Shocker,” which is now streaming on Hulu.

The series will take an in-depth look at Shah’s ongoing legal issue, focusing on “the controversial reality star and the telemarketing fraud charges brought against Shah and her alleged co-conspirators,” per ABC News.

Shah was arrested in March 2021 for her alleged role in a massive fraud and money laundering scheme, according to the Deseret News.

Since then, Shah has faced federal charges of “conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering in a purported long-running telemarketing scam,” according to NBC New York. She pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Shah’s arrest has been a focus of the marketing ahead of Season 2 of “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.”  Footage from the show includes the arrest, which took place during the filming of Season 2.

“Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Lisa Barlow recently said she is “emotionally traumatized” after Shah’s arrest, saying she had post-traumatic stress disorder for weeks.

“I feel like we all felt emotionally traumatized, and it just starts opening the floodgates of questioning,” Barlow said.

Meanwhile, Shah’s aunt, Lehua Vincent, told ABC News Studios that she believes Shah is innocent and that her niece could never commit such crimes.

“This is the most difficult time for our entire family,” Vincent told ABC News. “The Jen Shah that I know is a woman who has come from a culture that is deeply rooted in honesty, loyalty and hard work. There’s just no way that Jen has the ability to be harmful or hurtful or disrespectful.”
