When asked for her first reaction to watching the fight, Heather Gay admitted that she wanted Shah to “catch her”. Barlow then responded to the tweet, eliciting a cheer from Shah, who defended his friend’s comments.

The housewife explained that she felt Shah tried to hold Barlow “accountable” for what she said in private and wanted the owner of the tequila brand to reveal his thoughts in front of everyone.
However, Gay believed the explosion had happened due to Barlow’s refusal to admit certain things publicly as Shah continued to “force the issue”. She also noted that she remained calm and did not intervene because it was not her “beef”.
Barlow responded to Gay’s Twitter comment and Shah intervened
After the interview, Barlow apparently responded to his co-star’s comments. The two, who have had their own drama since the show began, are on the other side of the fence as Gay quickly backed Shah after the indictment, while Barlow took longer to return.
The business owner sub-tweeted: “If you encourage violence and say ‘catch it’ you’re in trouble.” Using a spin on the nickname “gorgeous baby” executive producer Andy Cohen nicknamed her, she ended the tweet with the hashtag “not gorgeous baby”.
Shah responded to the tweet, tagging Gay, saying her friend did not “promote violence”. She explained that the housewife’s comment referred to Shah “calling you about double standard and lies”.
She then hinted that Barlow was the one who encouraged the fight, claiming the owner of the brand of tequila had pushed her and encouraged her by saying, “Come on, let’s go.” Barlow has yet to respond.

Provided by the husbands, the ladies took a Mother’s Day vacation to Zion using the same Sprinter bus and driver as when the FBI and Homeland Security arrested him looking for Shah.
While it started to fun, it quickly took a turn when housewives started talking about Meredith Marks hiring a private investigator to investigate Shah and possibly lying about attending a memorial.
While the other ladies thought she had gone too far and theorized about Marks’ potential involvement in the indictment, Barlow said nothing, preferring to remain neutral. Wanting her to answer for her friend, Shah got angry with Barlow when she declined to comment on the situation.
It almost got unstable when Shah got up and entered Barlow’s face, but the producers stepped in before it got physical. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs Sundays on Bravo.
