Jen Shah appeared on the YouTube series Up and Adam ahead of her upcoming court date. And, as she prepares for trial, and the upcoming third season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, she spoke to host Adam Newell about her fight for freedom.

"I'm innocent," Shah explained, via AOL. "I'm not guilty of any of these charges that I've been accused of. I'm innocent."

As fans learned during the Bravo reality series' second season last year, Shah was accused of running a telemarketing scheme but pleaded not guilty.

"To me, this is the only option for me, is to fight, to show everybody out there, who was so quick to jump on the bandwagon and make assumptions, that you know what? I'm innocent," Shah continued. "You fight to vindicate your name, and your family's name. I'm fighting for my family."

Shah is married to Sharrieff "Coach" Shah, who works for the University of Utah, and shares two children with him.

Although many believed Shah was joking when she previously said she wanted Kim Kardashian, who is new to the field of law, on her legal team, Shah told Newell that she was quite serious.

I was being very serious when I mentioned Kim Kardashian, because I respect Kim Kardashian for the work that she has done. I am grateful for the work she has done for the Black people that have been wrongly accused, that have been imprisoned, that she has fought for, that she has lobbied for, that she has gone to the White House to fight with, alongside their family, to get people out, Shah shared. These are people that should never be there. She took time to do that, and I respect that. I look up to her for that.

Because Shah's husband went through law school, she knows firsthand how "grueling" it can be.

"I know what it's like to watch somebody prepare for the bar exam, you know?" she explained. "And I believe she did it to further help people and be on the right side of justice, and I admire that."

Shah and her cast mates are expected to return to Bravo sometime later this year for the third season of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.
