On Sunday’s episode of #RHOSLC, viewers saw the continuation of Shah’s arrest for alleged fraud, and one of her castmates acting completely unfazed by it. As previously reported Jen was seen alongside fellow housewives boarding a bus to travel to Vail, Colorado for a cast trip when she got a mysterious phone call.

A shook-up Jen told fellow housewife Heather Gay that she had “some bad news” and said her husband was hospitalized with “internal bleeding.” She then told the other ladies about her husband’s current “condition” and she left expeditiously while telling them that she might join the cast trip later.

Despite her acting shocked and alleging that her husband was hospitalized, the housewife was taken into custody that same day by Homeland Security and NYPD who swarmed the #RHOSLC van before raiding her house.

When news of Jen’s arrest hit, her fellow housewives were seen looking shocked and clamoring for answers. Lisa Barlow in particular talked to six of her lawyers and shed tears wondering if she’d somehow be implicated. Several of the ladies also wondered how the feds would know Jen Shah’s exact location and deduced that someone must have told them.

According to Lisa, that person might be her bestie, Meredith Marks.

“I think Meredith might know something,” said Lisa while covering her mouth with her hand. “I mean, I’m dead serious—because of some other stuff…”

With that, she called Meredith who wasn’t on the van because she was checking on the vacation home she rented for the group in Vail. While Lisa and the other ladies were noticeably frazzled, Meredith was completely calm upon hearing the news.

“Honestly, I’m not surprised by this,” said Meredith. “Too many things didn’t add up, and I’ve suspected that something was going on for a while,” Meredith added noting that she feels “validated that I was right. I’m not crazy. That’s the bottom line. feel like you guys really don’t [know her] I feel like I kind of did. And not anyone really wanted to listen or believe me. But that’s okay.”

Later, Mary Cosby [who also wasn’t on the van] came to Meredith Marks’ Vail vacation home and met up with the fellow housewife who was luxuriating and taking a bubble bath amid the chaos.

Mary asked Meredith if she was shocked about the Jen news, and Meredith doubled down and said she’s “not” while curiously bringing up a possible “insider”…

Mary: “My heart’s broken, I just found out when I got here. FBI doesn’t get involved unless there’s fact…”

Meredith: “Unless there was, like, an insider who gave them the information. I have been traumatized and terrorized — me, my family, my business — for almost two years by this woman. And I just waited quietly because I don’t point my fingers when I don’t have the facts. And you know what? This now suddenly adds up. Do I still say that she may be innocent? Sure, of course, it’s possible. Do I believe it?”

[No] mimed the housewife while shaking her head.

With that, some fans think that the FBI insider was Meredith herself.

Interestingly enough, Meredith was previously asked on an episode of “Watch What Happens Live” if she tipped the feds off to Jen’s location. The jewelry designer wouldn’t confirm nor deny and instead coyly said;

“Andy, haven’t you heard me tell everyone not to come after my family?”

Meredith has been at odds with Jen for alleged tweets she wrote shading Meredith’s son Brooks. Jen claimed she had a “social media manager” who tweeted and liked comments about Meredith’s son’s sexuality, but Meredith didn’t buy it.

Throughout Sunday’s episode, Meredith continued to keep calm and wondered why people are “so shocked” about Jen’s arrest.

OOP!

Jen Shah is currently is facing federal charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing, and conspiracy to commit money laundering in connection with a massive multi-year telemarketing scam. The reality star’s assistant Stuart Smith was also arrested and faces the same charges. The two pleaded not guilty during an arraignment in April.

The veteran actors looked like pros as they stomped the Prada runway in some fierce, high-fashion garb!

Jeff Goldblum and Kyle MacLachlan proved they’ve got the goods to start a new career! The Jurassic Park alum, 68, and the Twin Peaks star, 62, gave all the young models a run for their money as they strutted their stuff on the Prada catwalk in Milan, Italy on Sunday, January 16. Both silver foxes looked like they were pros, with each one stomping down the stretch with impressive self-confidence.

Jeff carried himself with poise as he rocked a long black overcoat that featured oversized puffs of fringe around both the sleeves and hemline. He paired the stylish look with a black turtleneck, matching pants and a set of shiny black loafers. Kyle brought up the rear in a sophisticated, dark overcoat with even darker lapels. His ensemble underneath was a bit more casual with what appeared to be a striped turtleneck, a light blue polo shirt and matching, baggy denim pants. He also donned light blue gloves for his catwalk cruise.

Jeff and Kyle weren’t the only Hollywood heavyweights that got a chance to show off their modeling skills. Sex Education’s Asa Butterfield turned heads in a shiny navy suit with a black wool top. And Maze Runner’s Thomas Brodie-Sangster stole the spotlight as he walked down the Prada runway in a chic black pea coat.

‘RHOSLC’ Whitney Rose on Why She Believes Meredith Was Tipped Off About Jen Shah Investigation

RHOSLC's Whitney Rose Reveals Why She Believes Meredith Was Tipped Off About Jen's Investigation as Jen Shares "Ah-Ha Moment" About Meredith and Mary Cosby

Whitney Rose thinks Meredith Marks was tipped off about the investigation into Jen Shah‘s alleged telemarking scheme — and she believes she knows who the information may have come from.

Following the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, which featured Jen getting physical with Lisa Barlow for failing to speak out against Meredith’s supposed slandering of her name, Whitney posed some telling questions as Jen revealed the moment from season two that made her say, “Ah-ha!”

“My biggest question is… if you hire a private investigator, could they stumble across a federal investigation? Because an investigation, by nature, is secretive right? Could that P.I. have uncovered that there was an investigation on Jen? Is it possible that she could have known something was coming for Jen?” Whitney wondered on the January 9 episode of the RHOSLC: After Show.

As RHOSLC fans heard earlier this season, Meredith hired a P.I. to investigate harassing messages that had been sent to her son, Brooks Marks, and later revealed that the P.I. believed there was a good chance that the messages had come from Jen. However, after butting heads in the early episodes of season two, Meredith did her best to get things to a cordial place with Jen.

“Basically, after her apology to Brooks, we were in a very neutral zone, in my view,” Meredith explained. “We’re not friends, we’re not friends. [But] I felt like Jen was in a position where she believed that we were going to move forward from a zero to being friends, and I’m not criticizing her. I understand why she believed that. For me, though, in order to actually move off of that zero, I had to be able to have some level of trust, and I didn’t.”

During another segment of the RHOSLC: After Show, Jen looked back on the chat she had with Heather Gay on Sunday’s episode, noting the scene as the start of her suspicions about Meredith and Mary Cosby and their potential involvement in her arrest.

“This was my ah-ha moment,” Jen revealed. “I did think it was weird when we got the thing that Meredith wasn’t coming [to Vail]. Because it’s your, you’re hosting this event, and she was like, ‘Oh, I’m already here.’”

According to Jen, it didn’t make sense that Meredith didn’t say she would be in Vail when they arrived and instead canceled on their bus trip hours before their departure.

“Then the fact that [Meredith and Mary] did it together and then I kept hearing the things that were said at Vail… It’s making me think more like, ‘This doesn’t make any sense, and how did they know I was at Beauty Lab?’” Jen admitted.

Heather also weighed in on the odd behavior of Meredith and Mary, saying that “all signs are pointing to them knowing something.”

“It was a last-minute decision for us all to be there as a group to leave for the trip. The location to meet for that morning had switched at like 1 am so there was a very very limited group that knew that we were going to, instead of meeting at Mary’s house, we were going to meet at Beauty Lab,” she explained.

Prince Harry Says He Is Not Safe In U.K. As He Attempts To Pay For Police Security After Being Denied

Published

Prince Harry

The Duke of Sussex, his wife Meghan Markle and their children have reportedly been ‘subjected to well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats.’

Prince Harry is trying to protect his family. The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex has said he does not feel safe in his U.K. homeland and has threatened legal action if his family doesn’t get the security they need while travelling there, per Page Six. The young royal even claimed he attempted to pay for more guards — but was denied.

“The Duke first offered to pay personally for UK police protection for himself and his family in January of 2020 at Sandringham. That offer was dismissed. He remains willing to cover the cost of security, as not to impose on the British taxpayer,” read a statement obtained by the outlet “The UK will always be Prince Harry’s home and a country he wants his wife and children to be safe in. With the lack of police protection, comes too great a personal risk.”

Harry’s law team said he, his wife Meghan Markle, their two-year-old son Archie Harrison, and 6-month-old daughter Lilibet Diana have been “subjected to well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats,” according to the statement. Back in September, the lawyers gave notice to the Queen’s Bench Division of the High Court that Harry will seek a judicial review if the family does not receive the proper security protocols, per Page Six sources. Prince Harry’s security “was compromised due to the absence of police protection” during his last visit to the UK, his lawyers added.

Meanwhile, the family is getting used to their new life in California, since they up and left their royal duties back in England. Showing how happily they are settling in, Harry and Meghan sent out Christmas cards over the holidays with a photograph of the entire family. The gesture marked the family’s first public photo of their little girl Lilibet! In the photo, the clan is all smiles, as Meghan is seen lifting Lilibet up in the air, while papa Harry holds on tightly to his adorable young son. The card featured a simple message of “Happy Holidays.”
