On the season finale of Shahs of Sunset, we celebrate Reza Farahan's 40th birthday and engagement to his boyfriend,Adam Neely. In other words, his save face tour has come to an end. Blech. Please forgive me for not feeling all warm and fuzzy toward King Reza.
Before the birthday bash in Palm Springs, Reza and Mike Shouhed hit up the gym. Reza wants to lower his "chunk factor" before he turns 40. Um, yeah. Get back to me when he works on his "racist" and "misogynist" factors. So, Mike and Reza talk business after their workout, which doesn't get intense enough to keep Reza from wearing gold jewelry or chomping on gum like a cow. Reza insists Mike didn't want to pay his dues as a new agent. Mike feels Reza never made an effort to mentor him. Back and forth we go. Again.
In the end, Mike declares he doesn't have the patience for a honest day's work residential real estate, so he's going back to commercial. Reza babbles on about them raising babies together despite their divorce, blah, he's not as witty as he thinks he is, blah, and then they hug it out.
Say what you will about Bravolebrities, but they seem to have some sort of reality sisterhood of the traveling famewhores bond. Where there's one, there's usually two or three more..and a camera, of course! Lilly Ghalichi, Joanna Krupa and Romain Zago were spotted hanging out in L.A., having a lunch date (and an impromptu photo shoot).
Or maybe Joanna and Lilly are hoping Bravo will give them their own show, Glam Girls of the Hollywood Hills (meh, that's not a good one..we need to brainstorm a fitting title). Although, I'm not sure Lilly has time for filming because she spends 80% of her day in the makeup chair while her Ghalichi Glam Squad gets her ready for the day, as she OD's us on selfies and swimsuit sales.
Before we dive into that heavy stuff, we have to see Reza talk Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi through putting a suppository up her butt to curb motion sickness. Because 1) the Shahs of Susnet are going yachting. 2) Sea-Bands or Ginger Root wouldn't make for good TV.
Reza offers to help, because they're totally BFFs again, "Loch-nesa and I are so close now that actually putting something in her butt doesn't seem as alarming to me as it should." Oh Reza, you slay me. Only, not. Go away. GG carries on, screaming about her backdoor being exit only, but she figures it out.
Here's to the Shahs of Sunset star nabbing Bravo's first gay wedding spinoff. I so hope Asa is the wedding planner!
So yes, Reza proposed "on my birthday in August," he dishes to Life & Style but the two kept their engagement a secret. Hmmm… wonder why – OH! Because the engagement is going to featured on the season finale Reza reveals. Of course… silly me, I thought engagements were for love, not storylines.
Phewww! Close one, Bravo. You almost went all classy on us!
So, while packing for Turkey, Asa called everyone to check in. Reza makes a crack about white people and flashes a wad of cash. GG and MJ each obsess about the other. Asa says everyone needs a good dose of "persianity" after a rough summer. She adds she cannot wait to look like everyone else in Turkey. Just better looking. So not joking – she said it.
