Sharrieff also told viewers how they met: “When I met my wife in college, it was fantastic. I never in my life, in my life, seen anybody as pretty in my life.

“And I said, ‘Well, would you like to go out?’ And she said, ‘Yes, but I’ll bring my cousins with me.’ You girls roll deep.”

Jen and Sharrieff Shaw got married in 1994 and now have two children together.

Their oldest, Sharrieff Jr, was born in 1994 and has followed in his father’s footsteps as a college football player.

Their younger son is named Omar – his birth date is unknown.

What are the charges against Jen Shah?

Sharrieff has been pulled into the charges against Jen, and while she faces 30 years in prison, L.A. Deputy District Attorney Emily D Baker told PEOPLE he may have to pay $9million restitution.

Jen and her assistant Stuart Smith were accused of targeting individuals over 55 years old and defrauding them.

They both initially pleaded not guilty, but Smith changed his plea in November 2021 and Jen changed hers, pleading guilty in July 2022.

Jen's attorney, Priya Chaudhry, told PEOPLE: "Jen pled guilty because she wants to pay her debt to society and put this ordeal behind her and her family."

She is expected to be sentenced on November 28, 2022, and has agreed not to appeal if she is sentenced to 14 months or less.

Baker said Sharrieff could be off the hook to pay the restitution fee because the government could pursue "marital property."

Even if Jen and Sharrieff divorced, he would still be required to pay the fees "because this is now accumulated during the marriage," Baker said.

Chaudhry told the outlet: "Ms Shah is a good woman who crossed a line. She accepts full responsibility for her actions and deeply apologizes to all who have been harmed."

However, in season three of RHOSLC, Jen blamed Smith for committing fraud, saying she is "innocent."

"I got played by Stuart Smith," Jen claimed. "I would not be in this thing at all if it wasn't for Stuart."
