Listen to ‘The Bravo Docket’

The Real Housewives have so many more problems than jealous friends, competing alcohol brands, and whose house is bigger. They’ve gotten themselves into some serious lawsuits and legal disputes. And, okay, it’s not always the Housewives, sometimes it’s their husbands or other Bravo TV reality stars, but regardless! “The Bravo Docket” is where two practicing attorneys examine the cases and claims that these personalities are up against.

This is Law 101, or as we like to call it: how money definitely makes you do crazy things- like illegally try to obtain more money! Hosts Cesie and Angela are covering all of the legal messes that Jen Shah, Teresa & Joe Giudice, Brandi Glanville, Mary Cosby, and more Real Housewives are entangled in. And also, they are practicing attorneys, so they truly know what’s going down in the court of law. “The Bravo Docket” only started earlier this year, with a little over 20 episodes under their belt, but it’s garnered a huge following. And you don’t even need to listen to episodes in any particular order as they mainly cover different cases.

But, the biggest ongoing story right now is Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star/villain Jen Shah’s arrest in March 2021 while filming their second season. “The Bravo Docket” has re-aired the episode from April talking about her indictment for her alleged role in a telemarketing scheme in which she could face up to 50 years in prison for. She was arrested and charged in March with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. 

She and her assistant, Stuart Smith, allegedly victimized 10 or more persons over the age of 55, allegedly selling leads to telemarketing companies that would attempt to sell business services to the targeted individuals. And on November 19, 2021, Smith plead guilty on three charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, money laundering, and obstruction of justice.

In the episode just re-released by “The Bravo Docket,” hear actual lawyers tell you what exactly Jen Shah was arrested for, if her husband, Coach Shah, was involved, what a grand jury investigation will entail/how the sentencing will work. It’s a hefty one.

But besides Salt Lake City’s legal problems, hear other lawsuits like Joanna Krupa vs. Brandi Glanville for statements Brandi made on Watch What Happens Live. “The Bravo Docket” covers the lengthy federal indictment of Teresa and Joe Giudice for fraud, the disbarring of a Real Housewives of New Jersey member’s husband, and the horrifying embezzlement charges against Tom and Erika Girardi. Hear the long, sordid tale of Mary Cosby’s grandmothers Estate, from foul play that resulted in the exhumation of a body, to forged signatures that go to the Utah Supreme Court, to how a preacher can have five homes and no audits.

To stay up to date on all of the legal drama happening with these Bravo stars, be sure to tune into “The Bravo Docket” every other week.
