Although Heather promised to support Jen no matter what, everything changed after Jen changed her first not guilty plea to guilty. The episode featured clips of Jen appearing in a NYC courthouse, followed by a screen that read, “On July 11, 2022, Jen Shah pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. She was sentenced to 6.5 years in prison.”
At home in Utah, Heather stated that she felt “overwhelmed with grief” while having lunch with the co-star. Lisa Barlow, added, “It is unfortunate that we are in this situation, with victims, that our friend will be gone for a decade and he has a 16-year-old child.” Jen and Sharrieff have two sons, Sharrieff Jr.28, and Omar16.
The situation felt emotional for Lisa, as she added, “I don’t want to believe that Jen could do any of that.”
