Real Housewives of Salt Lake City

Source: Bravo / Bravo TV

A Real Housewife of Salt Lake City is facing some shocking and far from “Shah-mazing” charges involving a massive multiyear scam. Jen Shah has been arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

A news release from the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, the special agent in charge of the New York field office of Homeland Security, and the commissioner of the New York City Police Department reports that Jen and her “first” assistant/partner, Stuart Smith were taken into custody and are appearing in court before a federal judge.

In the release, the feds are clearly NONE too pleased with the housewife who they allege was flaunting massive wealth while allegedly defrauding people who were often elderly, unsuspecting victims.

HSI Special Agent-in-Charge Peter C. Fitzhugh said:

“Shah and Smith flaunted their lavish lifestyle to the public as a symbol of their ‘success.’  In reality, they allegedly built their opulent lifestyle at the expense of vulnerable, often elderly, working-class people.  As alleged, disturbingly, Shah and Smith objectified their very real human victims as ‘leads’ to be bought and sold, offering their personal information for sale to other members of their fraud ring.  Working with our partners at the NYPD and the United States Attorney’s Office, SDNY, and with the assistance of HSI Salt Lake City, HSI New York worked to ensure that Shah and Smith will answer for their alleged crimes.  As a result, their new reality may very well turn out differently than they expected.”

Jen and Smith are accused of carrying out a wide-ranging telemarketing scheme that started in 2012 and continued up until this week where they would defraud hundreds of victims by selling those victims so-called “business services” in connection with the victims’ purported online businesses. Those victims many of whom were 55 and over were “sold” tax preparation and website design services, although “many victims were elderly and did not own a computer.”

That’s not all however, the feds also allege that there were other scammers involved, and the duo allegedly “generated and sold leads to other participants” for use by their telemarketing sales floors. The “lead list” was passed around and used to defraud more victims.

Conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing has a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and conspiracy to commit money laundering carries a maximum sentence of 20 years.

Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is currently filming and reportedly the ladies were scheduled to leave today for a cast trip. On Jen’s IG story she was seen getting glammed up, seemingly to film the show.

In related news, a September 2020 tweet from Jen is NOT aging well. “It reads Teresa [Guidice] walked so I could run” in reference to Jen almost “launching a glass” at her castmates.

Coincidentally Teresa who’s of Real Housewives of New Jersey fame was sentenced to 15 months in jail after being found guilty of mail, wire, and bankruptcy fraud.

Jah who was a standout on the premiere season of RHOSLC has made headlines for numerous reasons including her explosive blowups in the show…

and leaked audio and video of her hurling insults at her “Shah Squad” and an allegedly unpaid dress designer, respectively.

She was also previously blasted for saying on IG live that unnamed white women’s treatment of her was like “having a knee on her neck.”

Back when R&B singing group Guy had beef will fellow R&B singers New Edition, things took a sad and deadly turn. That’s according to Teddy Riley who’s featured on TONIGHT’s episode of TV One’s UNCENSORED. During his intimate convo on his life, the legendary New Jack Swing creator detailed what was really going on during the time when the singing groups had some serious R&Beef.



According to Teddy, things were tense and his breaking point was when an altercation between Guy and New Edition’s entourages resulted in the murder of his best friend and security manager, Anthony Bee.

“My big homie Anthony Bee, he got shot. It was a beef between New Edition camp and Guy’s camp,” said Teddy on UNCENSORED.

He then detailed a story about New Edition being late for a show in North Carolina and Guy taking the stage in their absence. Things got heated however when New Edition finally showed up and their road team tried to set up the equipment while Guy was still on stage.

According to Teddy, while Guy was In the middle of “Piece Of My Love”, New Edition walked out on stage and fists flew. Later and in a different city, things got even worse, and Anthony Bee was killed. The loss caused the singer to leave Guy.

“My friend Anthony Bee, got shot four–three or four times by one of New Edition Guys,” said Teddy on UNCENSORED. “I don’t wanna put his name out there because he’s forgiven, he was defending himself. The reason why I quit the group was that I lost my best friend and I couldn’t take the pressure. ‘

During Teddy Riley’s UNCENSORED he also speaks on his brotherhood with Michael Jackson.

WELP, Quavo and Saweetie’s sweet bando baeship appears to be a wrap (for now) after the snack-gobbling baddie announced that she’s single while hinting that her ex-Migo mister cheated with an unknown woman.

Rumors swirled after Saweetie fans noticed she unfollowed her glacier boo on Instagram prompting loud whispers about the couple’s shaky relationship status that was officially confirmed today.

For hours, there was speculation over whether her appearance on Justin’s LaBoy’s spicy “Respectfully” show with ex-Justin Combs caused the tragic split.

Saweetie and Justin apparently dated in the summer of 2016 when the “My Type” rapper was still a student at USC in California.

In the now viral clip from “Respectfully,” Saweetie and Justin appear to flirt in a way that suggested they still had feelings for each other/unresolved issues.

Saweetie gloated about being a “faithful” Cancer to which Justin agreed by saying Cancers “know how to treat people” while attempting to make eye contact.

It was CLEAR they were talking about each other in the slightly awkward clip that immediately made its rounds across social media.

Saweetie eventually broke the ice by suggesting everyone take a shot.

At one point, she was asked if she would partake in a threesome with her man if he was doing everything right in the relationship and her response was definitely not something Quavo would’ve wanted to hear.

As of right now, we don’t know exactly why things ended but it’s clear this is only the beginning of a messy saga.

Do you think they’ll get back together? Tell us down below and peep the pettiest reactions on the flip.

We’re going to state this another time just in case there’s any more confusion: Brandon Medford and Alexis Skyy have a daughter together. Once up a time, the world thought that Alexis’ daughter was conceived with rapper Fetty Wap, but this was not the case.

We recently reported on Alexis putting Brandon on blast on Instagram. The IG model alleged that he’s yet to step up to the plate, which is why her ex-bf, Fetty Wap, steps up as a father figure emotionally and financially for her baby girl Alaiyah. Well, Brandon has his version of how he found out he even fathered a child with Alexis. Although the car dealer doesn’t address claims he’s been a deadbeat parent since he’s found out he’s Lay Lay’s dad, he does walk through the process he went through to confirm he was biologically responsible for bringing her into the world.

In a clip shared by the Kitchen Talk podcast, Brandon alleged Alexis asked him to take a DNA test. He never stated when this conversation and series of events took place, but maybe that was done on purpose?

Hit play to hear it.

Multi-hyphenate media maven Alex Jackson has mastered making money while everyone’s sleep as the Founder of Media Girls LA where she secures brand deals for clients when she’s not interviewing celebrities, covering exclusive events and raising the bar for go-getters in the industry.

“I’ve been successful at this is because I’m a hustler and a go-getter, honestly,” she said. When I get no’s from people it literally pushes me harder to prove people wrong!

When I became a full-time entrepreneur in 2017 after losing my job, that was the day I told myself I would make this media stuff work for me! And from that day, I been working my a** off not to go back.”

In 2018, the Memphis, Tennessee native pitched her friend and influencer Miracle Watts for promotional deals in a pivotal power move that laid the groundwork for a new division within her company.

With lucrative brand deals coming in regularly, she worked on enhancing her own social media presence with an emphasis on consistency, engagement, editing and more.

From there, she secured brand deals for herself before learning that her caucasian counterparts were paid significantly higher than Black influencers.

In that moment, she made it her mission to advocate for influencers of color and secure the compensation they deserve.

Last year, when the pandemic surged across the world, no one knew how COVID would impact the influencer business. All promotional and marketing deals were on pause until further notice. Influencers started scrambling for opportunities and eventually reached out to Jackson.

Jackson followed up with brands she had previously worked with to no avail which prompted her to change her approach.

Instead of narrowing her scope to specific influencers, she expanded her network to include a diverse collection of influencers as well as YouTubers.

In addition, she strategized more effective ways to promote her services and was back to not only landing deals but closing more than she had before the pandemic.

“Besides my bank account increasing, my personal growth was phenomenal in 2020,” she said, reflecting on the stressfully uncertain year.

I honestly saw myself grow so much in this last year and I’m so excited to see how I do this year.”

To date, Media Girls LA has secured over $100K in brand deals for Black influencers that include Master P, Romeo Miller, Miracle Watts, Mehgan James and more.

This year, Jackson plans to double the number of influencers on her roster while pushing for higher pay for Black influencers and content creators in our “new normal.”

“I really feel like this is our new normal so, at this point, we have to get creative more than ever before because everybody is trying to do something virtual now,” she said.

It’s really about figuring out how you can use all these different social media platforms to leverage what you have going on.”

FOX's Empire - Season Six

Remember when we reported that ‘Empire’ actor Bryshere Gray was arrested in Arizona last summer for allegedly abusing his wife? Goodyear Police have leaked interrogation footage with the star after he was arrested and he makes no sense at all!

Gray, best known for playing Hakeem Lyon on the canceled Fox show was arrested on charges including kidnapping and domestic violence after his wife reportedly had to escaped him at a gas station, slipping away to call for help. She said he had been abusing her and holding her hostage for hours before she got away. He was later arrested after a standoff with a local SWAT team.

Now, the interview from the night he was arrested has surfaced and he seems to be so overwhelmed in the clips, he’s making up nonsensical versions of what lead to his wife, Candice Jimdar, calling police on him.

Gray initially called Jimdar his “best friend.” When asked by police in the two were married, Gray said “in a way,” claiming he and Jimdar were in an open relationship.

“We have an open relationship as well so I allow her to have a boyfriend because I’m really busy,” he said.He claimed that Jimdar was suicidal and had threatened to hurt herself. In interviews with police, Jimdar told police she had threatened to hurt herself in the past to try to stop him from beating her. She said Gray had abused her more than a dozen times.

Gray also seemed to claim another person could have assaulted his wife. He told police a man named “Mark” came over after he left to go to a friend’s house named “John.”

“He just says his name is Mark. That’s like his little fake name.” Jimdar told police

Gray’s wife also told police that the actor suffers from bipolar disorder and ADHD but refuses to take his medication, New12 of Phoenix reports.

Goodyear police released their entire interrogation of Bryshere Grey below.

*SAG & NAACP Image Award-nominated Regé-Jean Page

Loin-smoldering “Bridgerton” bae Regé-Jean Page is having breakout success as the star of Netflix’s series-of-the-moment brought to life by his ravishing performance that earned SAG (Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series) and NAACP Image Award (Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series) nominations after a stunning Golden Globes snub.

This comes just days after the pop culture obsession made history as Netflix’s most-streamed series EVER with a record 82 million households around the world.

For those late to the party, “Bridgerton” follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market. Hoping to follow in her parent’s footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled.

But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown casts aspersions on Daphne. Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas.

Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.

For weeks, viewers have swooned over Regé-Jean Page who recently dodged questions about his relationship status/whispers that he’s dating his costar Phoebe Dynevor behind the scenes.

“I think that everything you need to know is on camera. That’s why we presented it so beautifully for you,” said Page, 30, adding, “and all the sparks that flew came off of the beautiful scripts that we were handed, and so I think that the sparky-words scripted material are more than enough.”

The 2021 NAACP Image Awards air on March 27th followed by the SAG Awards that air April 4th.

Justice For Kendrick Johnson Rally

T.I. clapbacked directly at Sabrina Peterson, the woman and ex-friend of his wife who claimed he not only put a gun in her face in the past but she’s now having a “Surviving Tip & Tiny” style campaign where she’s allegedly speaking to woman accusing them of sex abuse and forcing them to take drugs. All of the allegations have been reposted to Sabrina’s Instagram page in her IG stories.

Tip released a video statement, saying they’ve had a history of harassment in regards to Sabrina Peterson, calling the woman “evil.”

“As y’all can imagine, it’s been extremely difficult for me to remain quiet in light of all the things that have transpired and all of the egregious allegations being tossed around about me and my wife. But it’s a reason for that and I don’t mind sharing. You see, if a person does not have any right to criminally or civilly have you in court, they have no right, the best thing they can do is get you for a defamation suit. Drag you in court, make you pay they legal bills to get you in court. Now, I mean, at this point, this is the point where this don’t even matter to me.”

“That’s the intention. Say a whole bunch of false stuff about you that get people to believe and make them come out and say they’re a liar, they’re a liar, they’re a liar. Then they say, ‘See, they called me a liar! That’s defamation!’ They drag you in court, get you under oath and all that, because unfortunately right now, it doesn’t matter as much that they can prove you did. What matters is you can prove you didn’t. That’s just an unfortunate place that our society has made it to.”

The rapper then clarified in his rant that, “women who have been victimized deserve to be heard,” adding that his wife didn’t deserve for these allegations to be flying:

“Black women, in particular, should be supported, defended, protected, and uplifted. However, evil has no gender. First and foremost, my wife is a beautiful person with an amazing spirit and a kind heart — she don’t deserve this.

What we not gon’ do is open up the door to my bedroom for everybody to come in and chime in make their opinions about what we do and don’t do and should do and shouldn’t do,” said T.I. “But I will say this, whatever we ever have done has been done with consensual adults who into what we into and like. If we want something, we know exactly where to go to get it. We ain’t never forced nobody, we ain’t never drugged nobody against they will, we ain’t never held nobody against they will, we ain’t never made nobody do anything. We ain’t never trafficked anything. Well, sexually trafficked anything. I ain’t never raped nobody. Never raped nobody!”

This week, the Jasmine Brand exclusively uncovered Sabrina Peterson’s six restraining orders granted by a judge. In one restraining order, Sabrina Peterson is accused of harassing a woman on social media and in person. In another court document, a separate woman alleges that Sabrina Peterson stalked her at work.

Peterson posted allegations from a number of anonymous people to incriminate Tiny and Tip – some who claimed that they were drugged before having sex with the pair. Some of the allegations she later removed from social media, referring to them as “shaky”.

The beef actually started after T.I. shared an unsavory post about Atlanta city councilwoman Felicia Moore who is running for mayor again Keisha Lance Bottoms. Sabrina, who is endorsing Moore then called out T.I. for being an alleged abusive, claiming he has held a gun to her in the past as she was “fighting” his assistant.

Amid Grown-ish’s midseason premiere the men of the show chatted with BOSSIP about the journeys of their characters.

As previously reported season 3 is all about drastic changes for the Cal U crew who are navigating through their junior year. Now officially a college dropout Zoey (Yara Shahidi) is experiencing the highs and lows of being an aspiring stylist and is wondering if life outside of college is all it’s cracked up to be. As for the college boys of Grown-ish, they TOO are seeing some drastic changes in their lives.

Doug(Diggy Simmons) is struggling to deal with a “break” that he and his girlfriend Jazz (Chloe Bailey) are going through. Now free from his relationship with Zoey, Luca (Luka Sabbat) has a new girlfriend, Jillian (Ryan Destiny), Vivek (Jordan Buhat) has a new love interest too (surprisingly) and he’s getting clowned less by his roommates.

Arguably having the biggest change this semester at Cal U however is Aaron (Trevor Jackson) who went from kissing Zoey at the airport to curving her for his new boo, Rochelle.

Not only does he have a new girlfriend, but he’s also going through an awakening, and after at first dissing the Black Student Union that he became disinterested in, he joins them and takes a stand for social justice.

Trevor told BOSSIP that he ultimately hopes that Aaron ends up happy with his decisions this season.

“Happy, I just hope my character’s happy whether it’s love, being single, being in love with yourself, being the President eventually; I think Aaron wants that. That’s what I hope, that his dreams come true.”

But what about the other fellas?

Diggy Simmons told BOSSIP that newly single Doug has his eyes set on the prize; graduation.

“I think Doug just wants to graduate,” said Diggy. “He’s there on a scholarship, he ain’t trying to play no games, he’s just trying to graduate.”

Jordan Buhat said that Vivek is on a “journey of self-acceptance” and as for Luka Sabatt, he thinks Growin-ish Luca is just continuing to live in his own world.

“I think Luca is just making clothes and hanging out, I also feel like he somehow is not hanging out with anybody on the show, he’s around the other characters—but I don’t know what he does outside of that. He kind of has his own ethos going on, so whatever it is, I hope it’s good.”

Teyonah is baaaae

By now, you’ve probably seen all the buzz surrounding Marvel’s latest pop culture obsession “WandaVision” where Avengers Wanda Maximoff (“Scarlet Witch”) and her husband Vision are seemingly caught up in an alternate reality set in different classic TV-themed episodes.

If that sounds trippy, it absolutely is on the mind-warping Disney Plus series that also stars our boo Teyonah Parris who plays lovable soul sista “Geraldine” in Wanda & Vision’s alternate reality that isn’t what it appears to be (based on recent events).

At this point, we know “Geraldine” is really Monica Rambeau–daughter of Captain Marvel’s BFF Maria Rambeau and eventual superhero–who’s attempting to reach Wanda & Vision in the Nick At Nite-style purgatory.

“Obviously, she’s iconic,” said Parris in an interview with Variety.

She’s legendary in the comics, but the goal is to make her human — or superhuman in some cases — but to make her a real, live, breathing, three-dimensional person and that process has been a really intense one, but fun. I don’t want it to sound like anything crazy, but I take pride and I’m doing my best to really fill this woman’s shoes and step into who she is. Fans have loved her so much over the decades and just wanted to make sure I do my best to do right by Monica Rambeau.”

Whew, it’s quite the twisty, turny mystery with Teyonah Parris shining brighter by the episode.

“Watching all of that unravel, and then come together later in the series, is going to be quite a ride,” Parris revealed to TV Line.

“And I hope that you all tune in and ride this thing with us, because it will be well worth it. I know there are so many questions in the first couple of episodes, and just no answers, but we will get to it, I promise.”

Have you been watching “WandaVision?” If not, WHY? Tell us down below and peep an essential Teyonah Parris celebration on the flip.
