Jen Shah was photographed for the first time since starting her six-year prison stint for wire fraud.

In photos exclusively obtained by Page Six, the former “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star was seen walking in the yard of Bryan Federal Prison Camp in Texas with a fellow inmate.

The two ladies, who both donned beige uniforms, appeared to be lost in conversation — potentially plotting new storylines for their play “The Real Housewives of Bryan.”

Despite being locked up for the past three months, Shah seems to be keeping up with her beauty routine, rocking a pair of simple gold earrings with her hair tied back in a sleek ponytail.

Shah kept her hair back in a slick ponytail, which she accessorized with gold earrings and glasses.

In fact, Shah’s assistant recently revealed the Bravolebrity is doing “phenomenal” at the minimum security camp.

“She looks beautiful, her skin looks so glowy, her hair looks great,” he shared via Shah’s Instagram Story, which he has taken over in her absence.

In an effort to stay in shape, Shah has even started teaching a fitness class “three times a week,” earning herself a new nickname: “Jen Fonda.”

Shah recently had her sentence reduced by one year, meaning she will earn back her freedom in August 2028.

In July 2022, Shah, 49, pleaded guilty to defrauding thousands of people in a telemarketing scheme. She was originally arrested in March 2021 and vehemently denied the allegations for months before coming clean.

She reported to prison on Feb. 17 and has since had her sentence reduced by one year, making her new release date Aug. 30, 2028.

She also has to cough up $6.5 million in restitution, which federal authorities hope to partially pay off using some of her jewelry.

However, the former reality TV star seems to be having a hard time scrounging up enough cash to pay her lawyer, Priya Chaudhry.

Last month, Chaudhry claimed that Shah and her husband, Sharrieff Shah, owe her $124,422.95 in legal fees and other expenses.

Chaudhry also requested to drop Shah as a client, claiming the couple “repeatedly promised to pay these outstanding amounts” yet have not followed through.

The Shahs have yet to address the claims and reps for the lawyer did not respond to Page Six’s request for comment at the time.
