Meredith Marks Defends Her Son Brooks After He Seemingly Threw Shade At Jen Shah Following Her Arrest!

Bravo fans believe that Brooks Marks, the son of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Meredith Marks, threw some shade at Jen Shah following her arrest amid legal scandal.

It all began when Brooks shared a video of himself lip-syncing to the rap song “MAMA.” 

The video showed the 21-year-old mouthing a line from the tune by 6ix9ine, Kanye West, and Nicki Minaj that said, “She threw dirt on my name, ended up at her own burial.”

“Ok Brooks Marks is messy and I love it,” one fan quipped, according to Page Six.

“Damn this season is going to be lit lol,” another chimed in.

A third commented, “In the tracksuit makes it more funny.”

Despite the timing, an insider revealed that Brooks didn’t mean any harm.

After Instagram page, Housewives of SLC, Meredith came to her son's defense in the comment section of the post.

“Not sure what you are all interpreting here but there are no hidden meanings on his posts. He is simply lip syncing to one of his favorite artists. Take it at face value rather than reading into it💖,” she said.

A source close to production told Page Six that Brooks “was just being Brooks on social media and didn’t intend to add fuel to the fire.”

The source added that he and Shah “are in a better place” since Season 1 of ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ wrapped.”

If you recall, Meredith and Shah got into an argument over how Shah treated Brooks at the RHOSLC season 1 reunion, with Meredith slamming Shah for attacking her son on social media after he claimed he saw Shah’s private parts while she was at the Marks family’s home.

The news comes after Shah and Smith, were arrested for their alleged roles in a telemarketing scheme that defrauded hundreds of victims throughout the United States on Tuesday, March 30.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss detailed the accusations against Shah and Smith in a press release on Tuesday, claiming that the duo “allegedly generated and sold ‘lead lists’ of innocent individuals for other members of their scheme to repeatedly scam.”

The statement continued, “In actual reality and as alleged, the so-called business opportunities pushed on the victims by Shah, Smith, and their co-conspirators were just fraudulent schemes, motivated by greed, to steal victims’ money. Now, these defendants face time in prison for their alleged crimes.”

Shah and her assistant were booked on charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and conspiracy to commit money laundering. They each face a maximum sentence of 30 years for the wire fraud charges and an additional 20 years for the money laundering charges.

New York Police Department Commissioner Dermot Shea applauded the NYPD and other branches of law enforcement for banding together ahead of Shah’s arrest in Salt Lake City.

“These individuals allegedly targeted and defrauded hundreds of victims but thanks to the hard work of the NYPD and our law enforcement partners, this illegal scheme was brought to an end,” Shea said on Tuesday. “I congratulate the NYPD detectives, Homeland Security Investigations, and the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York for their hard work in bringing these persons to justice.”

HSI Special Agent-in-Charge Peter C. Fitzhugh also noted that the “lavish lifestyle” that Shah “flaunted” on RHOSLC was not necessarily earned through hard work.

“In reality, they allegedly built their opulent lifestyle at the expense of vulnerable, often elderly, working-class people. As alleged, disturbingly, Shah and Smith objectified their very real human victims as ‘leads’ to be bought and sold, offering their personal information for sale to other members of their fraud ring,” Fitzhugh claimed. “Working with our partners at the NYPD and the United States Attorney’s Office, SDNY, and with the assistance of HSI Salt Lake City, HSI New York worked to ensure that Shah and Smith will answer for their alleged crimes. As a result, their new reality may very well turn out differently than they expected.”

A source confirmed to Variety an anonymous tip sent to the Instagram account @twojudgeygirls, that Shah was filming Season 2 with the rest of the cast preparing for a trip to Colorado, reported Page Six.

Shah departed, citing an emergency with her husband, and federal law enforcement subsequently swarmed the production in search of Shah. The source added that cameras were rolling at the time, though it was unclear if the feds stopped them from filming.
