The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah has been accused of throwing a chili bowl at her designer Koa Johnson.

In the new Hulu documentary, The Housewife and the Shah Shocker, Koa has accused Jen of throwing dinnerware at him during one of her violent outbursts. It’s not the first time Koa has alluded to the incident, nor is it the first time he got candid regarding Jen’s off-screen behavior.

Koa was hired by Jen to help create some custom looks for her while filming Season 1 of the hit Bravo show. The designer has detailed what it was truly like to work with Jen long before she was arrested for charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The new Hulu documentary takes a look at Jen’s lifestyle and examines the charges against her. Jen has pleaded not guilty, while her assistant Stuart Smith recently changed his plea to guilty.

Koa has shared that the incident where Jen threw a chili bowl at him occurred after Jen felt unprepared for the Season 1 reunion show. Jen did not like the dress he chose for her, causing her to berate him and chuck dinnerware at him.

The designer claims that Jen screams all the time in real life and is far worse than what The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City viewers see on-screen.

In January 2021, Koa finally quit working for Jen after the berating became too much for him to handle. He also alleges that Jen stopped paying him in September 2020.
