Jen Shah is keeping herself busy in prison the only way she knows how: by putting on a show!
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star is at the beginning of a half-decade behind bars right now after she pled guilty last year to an active role in a nasty telemarketing scam that targeted elderly Americans. And she’s apparently spending her time productively while behind bars at Federal Prison Camp Bryan in Bryan, Texas!
According to TMZ, the Bravo star is putting together a stage play with the help of some other inmates. She’s doing what she does best with the storyline, too — because the production’s working title is Real Housewives of Bryan! That’s not some crazy insider claim, either. That revelation came directly from Shah’s own manager Chris Giovanni. So it would seem VERY legit!
As Giovanni told it, Jen’s new stage production is “still in the early phases.” It’s unclear what exactly the play will be about. The news org notes the script centers on “real-life housewives” who are living within prison walls with their storylines “cracked up to 11.” That sounds fun!!
Jen is apparently going at this from all angles, too. The media outlet notes she is “taking time to teach some of her crew how to read and write.” Giovanni also claimed the RHOSLC star is “mentoring” other women on the inside and “keeping them encouraged” as they serve time. She has even started working in the prison’s education department and is helping to improve its library. So that’s nice!!
Jen’s manager also noted she has “lost about 15 pounds” while on the inside amid a very strict exercise regimen. Plus, she’s currently fasting and praying daily while observing Ramadan with “about five other ladies in her unit.” Sounds like Jen is definitely taking an active role in a lot of relationships around prison early in her sentence.
Regardless, we can’t wait to see Real Housewives of Bryan. What a play that will be!
What about U, Perezcious readers??
