The Shahs of Sunset cast members are making the press rounds this week. Reza Farahan stopped by The Commission Show on PNC Radio to dish on the new season and more. He slams NeNe Leakes and throws shade at Andy Cohen “since he’s not my boss anymore.”
On landing the show and using the platform for good. They want to know if he holds back certain things or if the show is the “real him”. “I didn’t think anything of it, I didn’t know if it would go anywhere or not.” He says that even if he would only have the platform for two minutes, he wanted to address homophobia in the Middle Eastern culture because he had friends that committed suicide when he was growing up. “I thought if I could impact someone’s life, that would be great.”
Kandi Burruss hasn’t had too many issues with her co-stars yet this season. Most of her drama seems to be focused on husband Todd and her mother, Mama Joyce. That said, Kandi took a little heat from Porsha Williamsduring this week’s episode because she didn’t chase after Phaedra Parks fast enough when she ran out of the group dinner. Kandi addresses that and more in this week’s blog.
Kandi shares that she’s keep a wary eye on NeNe Leakes and her suddenly attentive behavior toward Phaedra. “Of course I’m skeptical. NeNe has been nice these last few months, but that does not make me forget the years of drama and insults that have come from her in the past. Yes, I get that people change, but it’s OK for me to proceed with caution as I would’ve thought Phaedra would. Well, hopefully things will continue to be great with them and NeNe can continue to be Phaedra’s rock.”
Real Housewives Of New York is back and boasting a brand-new, completely the same, Bethenny Frankel! The exciting and dynamic preview below demonstrates this season is far from boring, but instead features glamour, personal dramas, and is filled with friction, but not of the manufactured kind.
Joining the show will be new Housewife Dorinda Medley, a good friend of Ramona Singer(Dorinda is giving me a whiff of Kim D – with real money!). The very wealthy socialite deals with dating dramas, daughter dilemmas, and learning to play well with others.
Andy flashes a photo of Jessica’s engagement ring. Reza and GG giggle and Reza says that may not be the one they are presently using. The one shown tonight on the premiere was just for filming purposes… Shocker.
Reza jokes that he’s going to get uninvited to the wedding and GG says she hopes she gets uninvited.
Andy shows a photo of MJ’s new boyfriend and Reza makes a retching noise. Andy says he’s handsome, but Reza challenges it. “You think he’s handsome? You are a liar!” Andy says he’s kind of a bear. “A bear? If I was MJ’s age and I had waited as long to find a man, he would be the last man. I would be a lesbian before I’d be with that guy.” Wow, mean girl Reza is still in the building, clearly.
Lilly shared her thoughts on reality TV and her Shahs of Sunset experience in a new interview with K9 magazine. Lilly says it was an emotionally tolling experience for her. “Being on Shahs is an experience I will never forget. To be on a reality show on a national network as big as Bravo is isn’t easy. The entire world is watching, and judging you. It’s a very emotionally tolling experience, and difficult to handle, especially when you’re on an ensemble cast where fighting and drama is encouraged. I will forever cherish my time and experiences on the show, but am so happy to no longer be doing it!”
