RHOSLC star Heather Gay says she knew Jen Shah’s business was a little shady even before her federal arrest.
“I have one job, and it’s to be Jen’s friend. That’s it!” she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. “And you know what, you need friends when you’re in a situation like this.”
She continued, “I knew her business was unsavory when I was her friend, so why would I change now that it’s public? I didn’t know it was illegal.”
“Jen was on my podcast and I asked her for like an hour questions about her business,” she continued. “Because I love business, and I know how hard it is to make money in business, it doesn’t just flow. And I never understood it, and I just assumed it was something that was, like, right along the line of… Nothing I would wanna be involved in. I didn’t think it was illegal. I didn’t think you’d go to prison for it.”
She says if she knew Jen’s business was illegal, she would have told her to stop.
