Shah’s 50th birthday in prison
In a post to Jen Shah’s Instagram directly, Coach Shah shared a message with fans updating them on how his wife spent her 50th birthday behind bars.
Today Jen Shah turned 50 years old and I can say honestly that we are not where I thought we would be when my wife turned 50, but I can also sit in front of you and say with complete conviction that we are exactly where God intended us to be.
Sharrieff is still a doting husband, organizing a sweet surprise for the housewives special day:
For my wife’s 50th birthday, I contacted 50 of her family members and closest friends and asked them to write a birthday text or message to me, and I would give it to her. Well, she received them today. It was more than I could ever imagine. My wife cried and cried tears of joy and appreciation for at least 6 and a half minutes. And all I kept saying was, ‘See, baby, we love you more than you think. You’ve not been forgotten.
Jen heard these notes when she was allowed to speak with Sharrieff during a 10-minute phone call.
