When The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City debuted on television in the fall of 2020, fans quickly gravitated to one housewife, in particular. Jen Shah is an entrepreneur who has founded multiple companies, including Shah Beauty, The Real Shah Lashes, and JXA Fashion. According to Screenrant, Shah is a marketing whiz and she has admitted to being invested in every aspect of her companies, doing everything from data collection to managing direct mail campaigns. Shah quickly made waves on the show, with her on-again-off-again feud with Mary Crosby becoming an immediate highlight with fans.

Jen Shah is also a happily married woman, with her husband, Sharrieff Shah, working as the coordinator for a high-ranking university football team. The 47-year-old star grew up Mormon but converted to Islam, and has two grown sons. While Shah is a successful woman with an enviable career, she has had some serious struggles over her life, including some issues with her mental health. As she revealed on camera during the first season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, she was once addicted to prescription medication: “After my dad passed away, I was lashing out at everybody around me. I mean, it almost cost me my marriage. He was done with me acting out, and it wasn’t until Sharrieff was like ‘I’m leaving’ that I was like wait … that was my rock bottom.”
