Jennie Nguyen fired from Real Housewives of Salt Lake City

PARK CITY, Utah — Jennie Nguyen has been fired as a cast member from the Bravo reality television show “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,” following backlash from a series of controversial old social media posts that surfaced.

Variety:
