Her staff stated the community “worked over time” to “bring down Jen,” and so they knew about Monica Garcia’s controversial previous amid her casting for Actual Housewives of Salt Lake Metropolis.
“I understand that emotions are high right now as a lot of misinformation is being put out to the public maliciously due to a decision that was made back in January 2023,” wrote Jen’s rep, through a press launch on dearjenshah.com. “That decision was to not move forward with a 1:1 interview [with Andy] and a mini-series.”
“Now that certain terms have been disclosed publicly on a radio show, I find it important to make transparent the true events as Jen closes the door on this toxic relationship with the network and production company,” the rep added, referring to Andy’s current claims. “The 1:1 interview would [have] take[n] place in her home as they discussed the particulars of her case, and her relationship with the other ladies of the show. Due to the holidays and the looming sentencing date approaching, Jen elected to spend time with her family, as well as continue to abide by the advice of her legal representation – which is why she did not attend the Salt Lake City Season 3 reunion.”
In accordance with the rep, Jen declined the community’s supply after weighing “certain clauses” of the settlement over “exclusivities and misrepresentation.”

These calls and emails lasted until the middle of January, which were all met with respectful declines.”
The discharge additionally claimed government producers needed Jen’s husband Coach Sharrieff Shah to movie for the most recent season.

In comes Monica.
“These examples [of retaliation] include casting an individual that was given a cease and desist back in 2021, in which the production company, and network were sent a copy of at that time. Allowing various guest to come on a weekly variety show and imply Jen’s involvement in a physical act that did not occur,” alleged the rep, alluding to Heather’s black eye. “Even sending certain cast members to try and rekindle with Jen or close family members in ‘hopes’ of getting added to her video call list, for what we can all assume was for storyline in Season 4. These instances were all met with no reply.”
The discharge stated Jen will “speak her side of the story” in time, and so they cryptically added: “The great thing about technology is that all phone calls, emails, and text messages are recorded.”
In the meantime, Andy threw some main shade at Jen throughout Sunday night time’s episode of Watch What Occurs Stay whereas addressing rapper Eminem’s lawsuit towards RHOP stars Robyn Dixon and Gizelle Bryant.
