The reality star’s manager, Chris Giovanni, told the publication that she’s working on a production called The Real Housewives Of Bryan.

Giovanni told TMZ that the script is about real-life housewives residing in prison with their characters highly visible.
Shah certainly seems to be making the most of the prison as she is said to make strong friendships and even mentor other inmates while maintaining morale during their sentences.

Shah, one of the Bravo show’s most bombastic characters, was jailed last month after finally admitting to a years-long telemarketing hoax targeting the elderly and vulnerable.
Her surrender to jail on February 17th came after she pleaded guilty to fraud last year – despite previously protesting her innocence for months on air and on social media.
She was sentenced to more than six years in prison after admitting to masterminding a telemarketing scheme targeting at-risk seniors and vulnerable individuals.
Shah tricked her victims into buying fake business guidelines, before finding themselves in relentless subscription payments they couldn’t get out of.
At the sentencing hearing, prosecutors told how she and her colleagues laughed cruelly when some of the victims called them to tears, begging to be released from debt.
But after being jailed for the scam, Shah took to Instagram to apologize for her crime.
“I am surrendering to serve a sentence in federal prison today,” she wrote.
It’s the price I have to pay for the bad decisions I’ve made. People were hurt by my decisions.

While imprisoned, I will work to reform and reconcile with the victims of my crime.
“With the passage of time, I pray that people will judge me for the way I responded to this sentence, and not just for the decisions that landed me in prison.”
Earlier this month, correspondence she sent from behind bars was read by Sharif Shah’s husband “Coach” Shah, in which she detailed a panic attack en route to Bryan Federal Penitentiary, Texas.
“I couldn’t breathe and my hands went numb,” she wrote. “I knew I was having an anxiety attack.”
Writing about her feelings on the way to prison, the TV personality said she became overwhelmed with emotion as she drove to turn herself in alongside her husband.

She continued, “I made the coach stop working because our reception was bad while driving and my eldest child couldn’t use Facetime.”
We finally called, I saw his face, and I cried so hard until he reassured me it was going to be okay.
I didn’t think I would make it through that day. It felt surreal when we drove Bryan FPC just minutes away from having to give up.
My worst fear and the unthinkable was about to happen – I had to say goodbye to my sweet husband and precious baby Omar (he will always be my baby even though he is a senior in HS).
