‘RHOSLC’s Meredith Marks Is Standing By Jen Shah Following Guilty Plea

RHOSLC star Meredith Marks says she was shocked when her castmate and close friend Jen Shah pleaded guilty to wire fraud charges are claiming her innocence for a whole season.

“It’s sad all the way around,” she added to E! News.

“There was never a question that there were victims, there were always victims whether Jen was involved or not. So that was never an issue. I always felt for the victims so that really didn’t change,” she continued. “Whether Jen was innocent or not, I always thought that she at least believed in her innocence. So for her to switch that plea was really shocking to me, and I’m sure we’ll learn more of the back story. I don’t think it’s something she can really talk about until after sentencing. It’s still an open case.”

Meredith says she is still friends with Jen.

“I think Jen obviously needs support now,” she said. “I’m not the judge, I’m not the jury, it is not my job to convict her, it’s not my job to sentence her. So yes, I’ve been in touch and checking in to make sure she’s OK. She’s been through a lot, and it takes its toll. It’s emotionally very difficult, I would imagine. At the end of the day, she is a human being, you know? She is as we all are, and we make mistakes, and if you’re going to take accountability and try and do better, then what else can we do?”
