Jen Shah Explains Why She Skipped Planned Interview with Andy Cohen

Published

on

Jen Shah is opening up about why she’s decided to not sit down for an interview with Andy Cohen, after being sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to fraud charges.

Shah — who was sentenced to six and a half years in prison, plus five years of supervised release, earlier this month — took to Instagram on Thursday to share her desire to tell her own story in full, and why she doesn’t feel that can be done in an interview with Cohen.

“On January 6th, I stood before Judge Stein and asked him to see me not as a fictionalized character, but as the real Jen Shah. I am now at a point, legally, emotionally and mentally, where I can answer some questions and provide a few unknown details about my case,” Shah wrote. “I want and need to share these critical facts. I owe it to those that love and support me to hear the truth.”

“I will not be doing the 1:1 with Andy Cohen and Bravo because of their unwillingness to remove contractual provisions that would allow the network to legally make misrepresentations of me and my story, relating to any and all topics, prior to and during the course of my participation,” she continued. “The specific 1 on 1 interview was not part of my RHOSLC reality TV contract. I promised myself and my loving family that I would not allow this portion of my life to be sensationalized or inaccurately conveyed.”

Shah expressed that “Too many people have been hurt by my actions and my inability to control my own narrative.”

“I would rather remain silent and wait until I am able to accurately share my story than continue having complete lies and misrepresentations about me smeared across the headlines,” she added. “I intend to speak and you will hear from me. I will share my story and this painful part of my life very soon.”

Shah is expected to surrender herself to prison on Feb. 17.

After the sentence was handed down on Jan. 6, the 49-year-old reality star tearfully apologized to her husband, Sharrieff Shah, and her two sons, who, according to ABC News, were seated behind her.

“I am profoundly and deeply sorry,” Shah said, the news outlet reported.

ABC News also reported that Judge Sidney Stein relayed he was “a little concerned” that the Housewives‘ manager was in the courtroom and warned her against trying to profit from her crime. The judge also urged her to focus on restitution to the victims involved.

Back in July 2022, the reality star appeared in Manhattan federal court and pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing. The second count, conspiracy to commit money laundering, was dropped at the time.

In December, Shah filed a petition with the presiding judge asking for a reduced sentence of three years behind bars, instead of the advisory sentencing of 11 to 14 years in prison. She faced a potential maximum of 30 years in prison and five years of supervised release.

Along with her guilty plea, the Bravo celebrity agreed to forfeit $6.5 million and to pay restitution of up to $9.5 million.

‘Young and the Restless’ Star Tracey E. Bregman Given Replacement Emmy After Hers Was Lost in a Wildfire

Published

on

Tracey E. Bregman has her Emmy Award back! On a recent episode of The Talk, the 59-year-old The Young and the Restless star was surprised with a replacement Emmy after hers was destroyed during the Woolsey fire in 2018.

Bregman won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series back in 1985, for her role of Lauren Fenmore on the CBS soap opera. Bregman’s onscreen husband, Christian LeBlanc, surprised her on the talk show when he walked out carrying a black box.

“Are you kidding?” Bregman questioned, as LeBlanc made his way over to her. “Oh my gosh!”

“I would like to present this, an Emmy for Outstanding Ingenue of a Daytime Drama Series, but this time, it’s from the people that love and respect you and cherish you, your CBS, your Young and the Restless family,” he told her. “I am so honored to be able to give you this.”

Bregman seemed stunned by the gesture, stating, “Oh my gosh. I can’t thank you enough. Oh my God. I’m so overwhelmed.”

Afterward, in a statement to Deadline, Bregman thanked the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for making the special moment possible.

“It has been one of the most extraordinary and heartfelt experiences of my career,” she said of receiving a replacement statuette. “I tried not to go into the ugly cry on the air. Thanks to my Young and Restless family, NATAS, The Talk and everyone who made this moment happen. My heart is so full.”

Adam Sharp, the President and CEO of NATAS, was thrilled to facilitate the happy moment.

“We were devastated to learn of the destruction of Tracey’s home, and with it, her well-earned Emmy Award,” he told the outlet. “As our judges acknowledged, the Emmy statuette is a symbol of her hard work and outstanding dedication to her craft. We are happy it’s back home where it belongs.”

Alexander Skarsgård Explained Why The Orgy Scenes In “Infinity Pool” Were “Very Fun” To Film

Infinity Pool: Alexander Skarsgard On Toe Sucking Orgy Scenes

I recently spoke to the beloved actor about his latest R-rated horror movie, which is getting major buzz due to its gore and graphic sex scenes.

ICYMI: Infinity Pool is a sci-fi horror film about a couple (played by Skarsgård and Cleopatra Coleman) who find themselves involved in an underground human cloning operation following an accidental tragedy while on vacation.

Reflecting on the “orgy sequences” in the film, Alex revealed those scenes were “very technical” to shoot. “It’s not quite the same experience watching it as it was shooting it,” he said.

“We talked about it with [director Brandon Cronenberg] and Karim Hussain, who is the cinematographer, about how it was going to be shot, what was going to be the vibe of the scene, and how Brandon envisioned that sequence to show. Once we got into it, it doesn’t sound very fun because it’s like, ‘Oh, just another day at the office.'”

“I love that sequence and the way it ties in the music,” he continued. “It’s so evocative…but it was incredibly technical shooting it because Brandon and Karim work a lot with different lights and different effects that they want to do in-camera.”

Although there was an intimacy coordinator on set, Alex recalled filming being “very fun and very playful.” “[It was] quite endearing to watch Karim and Brandon behind the camera like two little boys playing with Lego, to be so excited about all their gadgets that they were trying out.”

The True Blood actor, who has appeared nude in multiple roles throughout his career and previously said “the crazier [the sex scenes], the better,” agrees that Infinity Pool features the wildest sex scenes he’s ever been a part of — on camera.

“Yeah, I think so,” he said before pausing. “The fact I even have to think about that. … [Laughs] I don’t think I’ve had my toes sucked by another man before, on screen.”

“That wasn’t the craziest thing we did in the movie,” he clarified. “But yeah, it’s some pretty graphic stuff, to say the least. Yeah.”

Welp, there you have it, folks. Check out our full interview with Alex and Mia Goth here. Also, be sure to catch Infinity Pool in theaters now!

Priscilla Presley challenges Lisa Marie trust amendment that names Riley Keough co-trustee

Published

on

Priscilla Presley is asking a judge to declare that a “purported” 2016 amendment to her late daughter’s trust naming Riley Keough as a co-trustee is invalid, according to legal documents obtained by NBC News.

The documents, filed on Jan. 26 in Los Angeles Superior Court, seek confirmation that Priscilla Presley will maintain control of Lisa Marie Presley’s trust in the wake of her death on Jan. 12 at age 54 after experiencing cardiac arrest.

Lisa Marie Presley, the sole heir to her father Elvis Presley, executed a living trust in 1993, a legal mechanism for protecting one’s assets and determining how they will be distributed after they die, according to the American Bar Association. According to the court filing, the trust was “completely restated” on Jan. 27, 2010, and appointed Priscilla Presley and her former business manager, Barry Siegel, as co-trustees.

But after the death of her daughter, Priscilla Presley found a document dated March 11, 2016, “pertaining to be an amendment” to the trust, according to the court document. The “purported” amendment removed both Lisa Marie Presley’s mother and manager as successor co-trustees and replaced them with her daughter Riley Keough and her son, Benjamin Keough.

Benjamin Keough died in 2020 at age 27, leaving Riley Keough, 33, as the only trustee of her mother’s trust, according to the amendment.

In 2018, Lisa Marie Presley had sued her former manager Siegel accusing him of mismanaging her finances, according to Reuters. By 2016, the trust was left with more than $500,000 in credit card debt and $14,000 in cash, per Lisa Marie Presley’s lawsuit. Siegel filed his own suit accusing her of squandering her inheritance.

According to the January filing, “there are many issues surrounding the authenticity and validity of the purported 2016 amendment.” The alleged issues include that the amendment misspells Priscilla Presley’s name, the amendment was never delivered to Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley’s signature on the amendment “appears inconsistent with her usual and customary signature,” the court document states.

Priscilla Presley’s filing seeks for the 2016 amendment to be declared invalid, meaning she would remains a trustee over her granddaughter.

Lisa Marie Presley’s death was honored on Jan. 22 in a public memorial service on the front lawn of Graceland, the former home of Elvis Presley.

A spokesman for the Memphis, Tennessee, estate previously confirmed to TODAY that Lisa Marie Presley’s three surviving children, Riley Keough and twins Harper and Finley Lockwood, would inherit Graceland.

At the service, Priscilla Presley shared a tribute from one of her granddaughters that said, “mama was my icon, my role model, my superhero, in much more ways than one.”

Riley Keough’s husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, shared a letter that she wrote, thanking her mom for being “the best mother for me.”

Lisa Marie Presley was laid to rest in the Meditation Garden at Graceland next to her son.

On Jan. 27, Priscilla Presley thanked fans on Twitter for their love and support in her grief.

“Every parent who has lost a daughter or son knows what a dark painstaking journey it is,” she wrote.
