An insider told Page Six: “Bravo knows full well that viewers are following every detail of this case and will continue to do so as it progresses, so producers plan to follow it just as closely and use whatever footage they legally can.

“So far, they have filmed the lead-up to and aftermath of Jen’s arrest as well as her costars’ reactions, of course.”

According to the NYP, since Jen has been released on a $1 million bond, she can presumably film the show, and executives don't want to miss out on a chance for big ratings.

A source went on: “It’s rare that Bravo has a big hit like ‘RHOSLC’ on its hands right out of the gate, and the team hoped to continue that momentum when production for Season 2 began.

“Now, with the news of Jen’s arrest, they are sure to have even more success than they imagined, especially since Jen hopes to continue shooting if Bravo and her lawyers allow it.

"She can only say so much, however, as it remains an ongoing case.”

Yesterday, Bravo's Andy Cohen spoke out about Jen's legal battle on Radio Andy saying:“Oy vey, I’m waiting to see how it plays out. I have nothing to add to what we already know, other than I certainly hope and pray that none of it is true.”

Over the weekend, Jen posted in her Instagram stories “Thank you for being loyal, believing in me and not believing the hype.

"This journey has showed me who my true friends are. All my love. #ShahSquad.”

Last week, the Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City cameras were rolling when star Jen was arrested while getting ready for a cast trip, an eyewitness told The Sun. 

The 47-year-old was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud in an alleged telemarketing scheme and is facing 30 years in prison.

The insider claimed: “Cameras were rolling but it was so chaotic, I’m not sure exactly what was captured."

Jen and her co-defendant, assistant Stuart Smith, 43, have each been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.
