‘RHOSLC’: Jennie Nguyen Starts Cameo Account for 9-Year-Old Daughter

Former The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member, Jennie Nguyen, has started a Cameo account for her nine-year-old daughter, Karlyn, so the child author can send personalized videos to paying customers. However, many fans disagree with the choice as some believe Nguyen is “exploiting” her young child.

Jennie Nguyen started a Cameo account for her 9-year-old daughter

A couple of months after getting fired from The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City due to insensitive and problematic posts uploaded to her Facebook page, Jennie Nguyen started a Cameo account for her nine-year-old daughter, Karlyn Tran.

Although she is listed as an author – Karlyn published a children’s book in 2021 titled Mysterious Forest, which tells the story of a fox who wants a family – her account is found under the Real Housewives page on the Cameo app. She charges a minimum of $50 and has a 24-hour turnaround.

Many viewers disagree with Nguyen’s choice to make her daughter a Cameo account

Many viewers took to Reddit to share their opinion on Nguyen creating a Cameo account for her daughter, with several calling it “embarrassing.”

One felt like Tran didn’t have screen time to develop a base of those who would want a personalized video from her, referring to her as a “z-list celebrity.” Others think Nguyen is “exploiting” her daughter for more money after getting axed from the reality show, and one pointed out safety concerns as no one is ever sure where the videos will end up.

Another noted the 24-hour turnaround as Tran is still in elementary school. During her short-lived time on The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, some viewers enjoyed the nine-year-old as they liked her sense of humor. However, others felt it was “contrived, forced, and cringy” from the start.

Some believe Nguyen did her “research” before becoming a Housewife and “trained” her family on how they should act in the reality series.

Bravo fired Nguyen due to problematic Facebook posts

After RHOSLC Season 2 finished airing, several controversial posts uploaded to Nguyen’s Facebook page were released. Posted as recently as 2020, the content included several memes that endorsed Donald Trump and the Republican Party while aiming at Democrats.

One post claimed Vice President Kamala Harris received her position by sleeping with “the right powerfully connected men.” She also expressed anti-vaccination sentiments in many uploads and criticized the Black Lives Matter movement.

As a result, Bravo fired Nguyen. A day later, the former Housewife addressed the situation next to someone who identified as Michael, a Black man, and claimed she took “accountability” for the offensive content. However, Nguyen later implied a social media team she had previously hired were behind the posts.

The Salt Lake City native also claimed she’s not racist because she had a Black CFO and grew up as the only Vietnamese person at her school in Long Beach, California. Many fans weren’t buying her reasoning and thought she only used Michael as a “prop.” The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Bravo.
