I am so excited about this RHOSLC Recap. Andy Cohen has called this one of the top five housewivs shows of all time! While Jen Shah is on the highway to hell, the others are on the highway to Vail. And I can’t wait to hear all the gossip on the van. Hopefully, Jen is stupid/vain enough to films some more bullshit. Twitter was all a twitter over the ease in which Jen came up with the lie about Sharrieff having “internal bleeding.” Memes are everywhere with Erika coaching Jen on what to say. Like just say, “Sharrieff drove off a cliff and had internal bleeding, then he came home and confronted a burglar, and then he caught glaucoma from the burglar, and then our son went to help but he rolled his car five times and I’m under a lot of stress.”
The Aftermath Of The Cop Drama
Here we go! I’m so excited! I love how Heather wants to give Jen a heads up in case she is on the run. That’s a good friend. If the cops where hunting my ass down, I would hope my friends would tell me. LOL. That said, I have never committed a crime, so… Anyway, Lisa discourages Heather from doing that. Whitney calls her husband to tell him what is happening. I find it odd out the women always refer to Jen as Jen Shah. Heather messages Jen anyway. Lisa calls her husband and cries. WHY IS SHE CRYING? Then she calls an attorney to find out what is going on.
Jennie just wants to get on the road. LOL. She goes through the bag of snacks that Jen left behind. I love Jennie in this moment even if her entire storyline is fake, this is not. Lisa grabs a snack as well. Heather is appalled. And off we go. WAIT WHAT? We are getting no more footage of the van!????? I was expecting a long ride with all the details coming out and their immediate reactions! This is bullshit! There better be a good reason for this!
I’m Sorry, Jen Shah is Not aVAILable.
Meredith is the first to arrive. The house is amazing and huge. Oh wait, we are back in the van! Heather wants to know why the cops knew she was there. Everyone is wondering who could have turned her in. Lisa says she never believed the cops “we just want to make sure she is okay story.” But, they are all confused about how nonchalant she was and how long it actually took her to run. Heather is clueless and doesn’t understand why Lisa seems to know so much about what is happening. Lisa’s husband called back and she tells him she has called her lawyers and was told not to talk to law enforcement without one of them being there. Lisa covers her mouth and says, “I think Meredith might know something.”
Whitney admits that she always wondered where Jen gets such an insane amount of money from selling leads to marketers. Oh wow, this is a long ass van ride. No wonder people opted to fly on their own. I would have too. Unless I knew the van ride would be this exciting. When they stop for a potty break, everyone starts to wonder why Lisa is calling all of her attorneys (who has a ton of attorneys at the ready? I have one. And she is a defense attorney, because, Sheree Whitfield, who seems to live in a courtroom.) Lisa called SIX lawyers. Every seems to think Lisa tipped off the feds. I do not. Lisa is acting too guilty and shook up to be the informant. My guess at this point is Meredith.
Finally, The News Breaks
The women in the van find out that Jen Shah and Stuart Smith have both been arrested for fraud and money laundering. Whitney is the first to find the news online. Lisa starts crying and says “Oh no! Stu too? I feel so bad! I honestly feel so bad!” Is it me or is that a very odd reaction? Then Heather starts bawling. Jennie and Whitney are like WTF is wrong with them? Lisa feels like she should be back there. Lisa says, “Will she have to go to jail, you think or what?” Whitney very calming tells her, “She’s going to prison.” Whitney is my new favorite housewife. Lisa reads online that Jen is facing up to 30 years in prison. Why isn’t this a bigger story than Erika Jayne!? We need more updates and sources on this!
Jennie is very calm and thinks everyone needs to call the fuck down. Whitney seems to know a lot about selling data. I am just saying. Jennie agrees with me that this is weird. Jennie says the cops will come to Jen Shah’s house and raid it. And then, we get that footage. YAY! Holy shit there are helicopters and a billion cop cars. Clearly, this is a big ass deal! Her house is surrounded with guns drawn and her poor black sons must be terrified as they have to walk through a sea of cops with long rifles drawn. So far, I have not seen Sharrieff as being at home. Wow, those boys may have been through this alone.
Jen Gets Out On Bail
Lisa of all people wants to call Meredith to see if she knows what is going on. Don’t they kind of hate each other at this point? When they call to let Meredith know, she is not surprised in the least. Meredith says that Jen and her finances never added up for her. Meredith laughs. I love Meredith. I also think that Meredith tipped off the feds. Lisa is shocked that Meredith is not shocked. Then, they learn that Jen is out on bail. One again, Whitney seems to know a bit about how to laundry money. Heather got her info on that from watching Ozark. lol. Jennie says nail salons are a good place to launder money. Lisa is not seemingly trying to make everyone but her suspect.
Meanwhile in Vail, Mary arrives. She’s the next one to get locked up in my opinion. She let’s herself in. Meredith is in the bathtub. This house is HUGE! Mary says her heart is broken over the Jen situation. Meredith explains the seriousness of the situation. Mary was on a plane when this all went down. Meredith says she is not surprised. Mary claims to feel compassion. I don’t even understand what money laundering is. Meredith says Jen has terrorized her, her family and her business for years. But, she has not said anything about her because she didn’t have the facts. Now she does. Meredith sends Mary off to take first pick of the rooms (other than hers). There is not a bad room in this house.
Back On The Van
We finally get to actual top about the trip. Both Whitney and Jennie are at odds with Mary and not looking forward to seeing her. They foursome arrives at the house only to discover Meredith is STILL in the bathtub having a bubble bath. I can’t say as I blame her though. It’s a great tub, unlike my antique. Let the room selection begin. There are actually extra rooms now that Jen is in a jail cell. Everyone gets on the phone with their husbands. Lisa’s husband texted Sharrieff to see if he was okay or if he had internal bleeding or whatever. But, he didn’t text back.
The private chefs provide a lot of things most of which is not cooked. That’s a problem. I’d eat the lamb chops though. Oh shit THAT ASSHOLE is going to be on WWHL. He was the reason I didn’t watch Wendy this week. Why is he always on this fucking show! I will probably just skip it and let y’all tell me what happened because I doubt Heather is going to spill any tea. Maybe, I will just FF to her parts. Anyway, at dinner they ladies discuss the fact that Jen was trying to run but the cops had her location from her phone and arrested her on the side of the road. I want that footage! Jennie points out that they Feds have been investigating Jen since 2012.
This scene with Mary being outraged my Jen Shah scamming “old people and people who don’t have money” will be replayed when she is the next one to be arrested. Mark my words. Mary says she was scared of Jen because she knew what she was capable of. We never saw evidence of her being afraid of Jen. However, a snake recognizes another snake. The Meredith says she and her family were in NY together last September. She notices on her phone that Jen had called multiple times. She called her back and Jen says she was trying to get into her store but it was closed. The manager finally let her in. The manager called Meredith to let her know that Jen spent a few hundred dollars but that either Jen or one of her friends stole a handbag. It turns out it was an employee of Jen’s who returned it. Stu?
Oh Meredith has receipt. It was not Stu but some skinny black guy. She has all the texts and the video footage saved. Production rolls that beautiful bean footage but blurs his face. Meredith also shares that she knows that Jen is red flagged at Louis Vuitton because she pays in cash. I didn’t even know that was a thing, but I guess if things are five or more digits there that would be weird to come in with that much cash. This is like Teresa Giudice paying for $120,000 worth of furniture with cash on RHONY. Half of these housewives would fit right in on that show about stupid criminals.
The Heather says that Jen visited her recently and she ordered an Uber for her and put her in it and then got the alert on her phone that Jen had gotten out of the Uber half a mile from Heather’s house. What the fuck is that all about? Lisa seems to know but she doesn’t want to say it. To Be Continued?
Next Week, we turn to Mary and Lisa says that a friend of hers, probably the dead one, mortgaged his house to give Mary $300,000! WOW. Also Jen meets with … a lawyer? a shrink? And cries about how hard she has worked and doesn’t understand how this happened. Also, Meredith hired a private investigator. We’ll find out about that NEXT WEEK. This is by far the best housewives show currently airing. What are your thoughts?
