What’s Schitt’s Creek?

If you’re new to Schitt’s Creek, the show follows a rich family that suddenly has their lives, along with their wealth taken right from under them. They have left one thing and that is the deed to a town called Schitt’s Creek. The town was purchased by Johnny (Eugene Levy) for David (Dan Levy) as a joke.

The series, which aired back in 2016, received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination — becoming the first Pop TV program to do so. The show features hilarious moments whilst remaining thought-provoking. It’s also full of some feel-good facts and hidden secrets. After five years of filming, the show ended, but viewers can still rewatch it over and over again.

This was shown in the way she talked and even in the way she held her bag. She would continuously watch videos on YouTube of these celebrities to help her find her voice.

2. The designer clothes that are worn on the show are all second-hand purchases

Since the show was about a wealthy family, it was important for the stars to be dressed in luxurious outfits. However, the show was filmed on a really tight budget so the costume designer went to thrift stores and never paid more than $200 per item.

3. Dan Levy was very into the details

Dan was involved in practically every aspect of the show — writing, wardrobe fittings, and even post-production. It’s only normal for him to have been so particular about how things turned out. He was even adamant about scuffing the carpets before shooting began because he wanted them to look more worn and not too clean.

4. David’s sexuality was a crucial point for the series

Dan wanted to make sure that the LGBTQ+ characters on Schitt’s Creek could just be. This is opposed to them being used in order to teach viewers a lesson as many other shows do. David, a pansexual, didn’t have a coming-out moment.

5. The series was created after Dan Levy was unable to find work

Jen Shah Making Strong Claims and Argues With The Producer of RHOSLC

If people thought that The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City drama could not get any more emotional, they were wrong. It turns out that there was no shortage of issues that the woman can face. Viewers have seen nothing so far but an exclusive preview for an upcoming episode of RHOSLC first shared with an online magazine. An argument between Whitney Rose and Jen Shah gets so heated that Jen ends up exchanging a few words with the producer of the show.

The moment takes place while Whitney, Heather Gay, and Jen are in outdoor bathrooms, and after Jen says something that Withney previously “f–ed up” her marriage. This leads her husband Coach Sharrieff Shah to not come home for a few days. Then, she uses some strong language and splashes water in the heat of the moment.

People need to see how the producer of the show feels about the moment. Let’s just say that Jen Shah’s meltdown doesn’t end there. On a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, Jen lashed out when she saw her close friend Meredith Marks spending time with Mary Cosby. It appeared that Jen hadn’t fully forgiven her after their recent fights.

While Meredith tried to assure Jen that Mary wasn’t coming in between their friendship, it appears that things quickly escalated when Meredith said she would not take a side in the epic argument.

Heather Gay argued that Whitney didn’t want this to happen, even though Jen wasn’t backing down. She then yelled that she trusted them as their friends, with a couple of not-so-friendly comments. Jen then splashed water in the bathtub at a member of the camera crew. This made the producer even ask her why she was doing this.
