Jen Shah and Whitney Rose They may have had some problems with each other during the debut season of The real housewives of Salt Lake Citybut when it came up last week about Whitney being tied to the unruly protests in Washington DC, Jen had Whitney’s back.
After Whitney got drawn into the drama because of her association with a woman named Sara McArthur Piercephotographed during the shocking riot and seen in an earlier episode of RHOSLCJen released a statement of support when she also defended her decision to be open about her mental health issues.
After Real Reality Homo shared the photo below of Sara on Instagram, Real Reality Homo offered a second statement urging fans to make it easy for Whitney, who was definitely not in DC at the time of the shocking events. Jen then weighed in after some fans also accused Whitney of liking posts that supported the MAGA movement and President Trump [[[[Editor’s note – President Trump instigated the violent uprising on January 6th with his repeated lies about winning the election, which he lost to President-elect Joe Biden]].
“I want to comment on this too … I had a conversation with recently [Whitney Rose] On some difficult issues related to systematic racism, colorism, white privilege etc. I can tell you from my personal conversation with her that she does not support the protests or the violence that have taken place in our nation in any way [Capitol]”Confirmed Jen according to a screenshot shared by Queens of Bravo on Instagram.
“She is one of the few people who has proactively reached out to me after the protests asking to be an ally and part of the change we so desperately need in our country,” Jen continued. “We have enough hatred … let’s stop and hug the people who are educated and want to be part of positive change.”
In another post on her Instagram stories, Jen commented on her decision to publicly address her mental health issues and the medications she is taking to manage them.
“That person who told me I didn’t need to be open about my sanity and take medication [because] It would be used against me … Guess I don’t just care what you say, you were wrong, honey, “wrote Jen along with a message telling her fans and followers to” stop shaming people ”.
