Season three of Shahs of Sunset has not been good for Reza Farahan and Mike Shouhed's friendship. Reza feels Mike abandoned him during his "time of need" following his outburst at Club Nur, and Mike is upset about their failed real estate partnership. This week's episode set up their upcoming emotionally charged showdown at Asa Soltan Rahmati's Diamond Water launch party.
Reza and Mike took to their Bravo blogs to share their reactions to this week's show – and to exchange an insult or two of course!
About his party, Reza said, "Celebrating with Adam and our close friends was really special. I know the caviar was way over the top, but I don't think you can understand my relationship with caviar, unless you’re Persian or Russian. It was an amazing night and the first time we had guests over in our new home. I will always remember that night - and I cherish the fact that MJ [Javid] and Asa are as close as they are now."

While Mike, Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi, and Lilly Ghalichi didn't make his "close friends" list, Reza spent a good portion of his housewarming party talking about the less desirables. Mike snarked, "I'm glad that I was the top of conversation throughout the entire dinner," adding, "Caviar shopping at the mall? From a vending machine? Classy! NOT! Then to keep telling your guests over and over and over again how much it cost? Even classier!"
About Mike's financial woes, Reza said, "The idea that I was responsible for his bankroll and ability to buy a ring is laughable. A few weeks ago, Mike was dropping tens of thousands of dollars on a ridiculous bus wrap to generate business. I was willing to give Mike my mentorship at every step of the game, but Mike didn't want to put in the hours. He didn't want to learn the ABCs of the residential real estate game."
I totally agree with Reza – ouch! typing that hurt! The only person responsible for Mike's money problems is Mike. Did the partnership work out the way he had hoped? No. Did he pound the pavement in spite of his disappointment? No. Mike blogged, "BTW, Reza Jan, I got deals, brother. Lots of them. Just not dumb enough to bring money to the table if you won't reciprocate." Hilarious!
Reza's not a fan of Mike's poker buddies. "The set of Scarface – who the hell were those guys? Something tells me I don't want to know where their money comes from. I probably shouldn't even talk about them, I'm not sure how safe that is, but it makes me sad that Mike has to sink that low and associate with those kinds of people to make a buck. Sheep or lion? I'd rather be an ant or even a piece of lint, as long as I'm not associated with those people."
Mike shared that he hasn't gone into business with any of them yet, adding, "Let's see if these guys can put their money where their mouth is." Here's a thought, Mike – stop waiting for someone else to make it happen for you and do it on your own!
