But 49-year-old Jen was raking in $34,500 per episode of RHOSLC, Radar Online has reported.
Shed Media, which produces the show, was forced by the government to reveal the figure in court documents obtained by the outlet.
Jen has agreed to forfeit $6.5million and make a restitution of $6.66million to the victims of her telemarketing scheme.
Of the $34,500 salary, the reality star was taking home about $20,000 after paying $9, 765 in federal income tax, and other deductions.
The figure is based off her earnings for season three, which saw her final appearances before she went to prison.
The government also sent a letter to customized video message platform Cameo, but the company claimed they did not have any of Jen’s money.
The mom-of-two is currently serving her sentence in FPC Bryan in Bryan, Texas, after being found guilty of conspiracy to commit wire fraud in connection with telemarketing and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
Jen has promised to repay “every cent” to her victims, most of whom are over 55.
‘PRICE I MUST PAY’
She turned herself in to begin her six-and-a-half year sentence in February, telling The U.S. Sun via her rep: “It is the price I must pay for the bad decisions I made. People got hurt because of my decisions. While incarcerated, I will work to make amends and reconcile with the victims of my crime.
“In time, I pray that people will judge me for the way I responded to this sentence, rather than only for the decisions that led me to prison.”
Her attorney Priya Chaudhry told The U.S. Sun in a statement: “Jen Shah’s resolve to make her victims whole and to turn her life around is unyielding. She is committed to serving her sentence with courage and purpose, fueled by her desire to make amends for the hurt she has caused and to help others in her new community.
“No obstacle will deter Jen from making the most of her time in prison and she’s determined to make restitution to those whose lives she has impacted.
“Her path ahead will be filled with challenges, but with the unwavering love and support of her family and friends, Jen is prepared to face these challenges head-on and emerge from this experience a better person who makes a positive impact on others.”
In her final interview before she headed to prison, Jen revealed the two things she has taken with her are a Quran and her “release plan”.
With her “release plan”, which she has devised with the help of prison consultants, Jen will work on turning her sentence into a “hopeful” experience and lay out the steps for life after her release.
“I’m gonna be journaling the experience, documenting everything,” she told White Collar Advice.
“This is not only my roadmap, but what is going to hold me accountable for everything I told the judge in sentencing to make these victims whole.”
Jen also said she would spend her days behind bars “waking up early, spending the early morning time writing, reading.”
She will be keeping fans updated on her stay with a website, www.dearjenshah.com.
While her future on RHOLSC remains uncertain, she previously teased fans that she may make a return after she has completed her sentence.
