Andy Cohen Thinks It Was Jen Shah Who Gave Heather Gay The Mysterious Black Eye On A “The Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City” Trip, And Jen Responded
Happy “Jen Shah Incarceration Day” to all who celebrate! She heads to the clink today to spend 6.5 years there for defrauding thousands of (mostly elderly) people out of millions of dollars through a telemarketing scheme. Though at one point it seemed like Bravo Daddy Andy Cohen was one of her biggest shah-porters and didn’t think she should be locked up, he eventually changed his tune. He even said on Watch What Happens Live the other night that he suspects Jen gave her friend and fellow The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast mate, Heather Gay, the mysterious black eye she suffered on a season 3 cast trip to San Diego. Though Heather said on the show’s reunion last month that she was so blackout drunk she couldn’t remember how she got hurt and there was no video or audio of what happened to shed light on it, many fans and even other members of the cast subscribed to the theory that the characteristically volatile and aggressive Jen clocked her and Heather was keeping it quiet to protect her friend from further legal repercussions.
According to Page Six, Andy had Lala Kent and Katie Maloney from Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules on WWHL the other night. The black eye that dominated an entire fucking season of RHOSLC also came up in their conversation on the after-show.
During Wednesday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” guest Lala Kent admitted that she believed Gay got hurt by her co-star Jen Shah.
“I think it’s from a cast member,” the “Vanderpump Rules” star, 32, hinted, before Cohen added, “From Jen Shah? I do too. I don’t think she hit her head on a cabinet and got scratches on her arm.”
Here’s the discussion, where they also throw a little shade at another notorious shady housewife/possibly criminal grifter, Erika Jayne:
Jen had her attorney respond to Andy’s accusation, saying she has “no comment” but also that Andy’s probably just salty she turned down his requests to appear at the reunion or have a pre-jail interview. via Yahoo! News:
…Jen Shah has “no comment” for Andy Cohen following his claims that she was the reason for Heather Gay’s black eye during the show’s third season.
The Bravo personality’s rep tells Life & Style in an exclusive statement that Jen, 49, “chooses to focus this time with her family” instead of these allegations.
“I personally know that she has not spoken to Andy Cohen since before the reunion where he called her directly to beg her to attend the RHOSLC [season] 3 reunion,” her rep continues. “That, coupled with the fact that we passed on the [one-on-one interview] six times seems to be where his aggressions lie.”
It’s not surprising that Andy waited to jump on the “Jen’s a garbage person” bandwagon until it was confirmed that she’d no longer be available to feed his millions-making machine. It’s time for Andy to take a taste of his own medicine. Now that his frenemy/nemesis, Ryan Seacrest, will soon be free from Live with Kelly and Ryan, I’d like to see a boozed-up Andy and Ryan duke it out in front of the cameras over whose New Year’s Eve show sucks the hardest. That series would surely be short-lived, though, because they’d both win!
