RHOSLC’s Heather Gay sat down for an interview, where she was asked about Jen Shah’s legal issues with the feds.
“What I can say is this is the biggest, hugest thing that has happened to our community, and to our group of friends, and to Jen personally, and to me personally,” she said on the So Bad It’s Good with Ryan Bailey podcast. “I mean, this is big, and it’s real.”
She added, “It’s all very, very real, but it’s also hyper-realized. I don’t think anything’s bigger or more hyper-realized than a federal indictment or your friend facing prison. Like, this is hyper-realized drama, but it’s real, and it’s happening.”
According to Heather, the whole cast is still coming to terms with Jen’s arrest, but she seems to imply that she may be standing by Jen.
“And so what I can say is it does feel like we’re ten years into [the show], but we’re only [in the] second season, and everything plays out in real-time. We are in it with her. We are going through it as friends, as people who for the first time in [our] lives are public figures. And for the first time in [our] lives, we have to answer to not only [our] family and friends, but to a worldwide audience, and to also see [our] trials and struggles played out and subject to public opinion.”
