Shahs of Sunset

shahs-of-sunset1

We are only on episode two of the new season of Shahs of Sunset and I’m already tired of hearing the Persian Priestess turned Diamond Water Maker turned Kaftan Peddler Asa Soltan Rahmati go on and on about her unborn vegan baby. I wish someone could give me an epidural for the rest of the season to take the pain away.

Speaking of things we have to endure, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi is back in full effect this episode and she is ready to make amends all over the place. I don’t even know if she understands what she is apologizing for but she plans on throwing those apologies out faster than she can go from belligerent drunk to blackout drunk. GG arrives at Asa’s house to eat some hummus and drink the weird watermelon juice Asa has set out. Note: not diamond water. But Asa is true to her new craft, the overpriced kaftans she wears nonstop, and today is no exception. GG shovels zucchini into her mouth with her talons and tells Asa how skinny she looks, despite Asa’s constant attempts to get GG to notice her baby bump.

Shahs of Sunset recap

Yes, Asa Soltan Rahmati is a reality TV star, but she is pretty lucky because she has been able to capitalize on the Shahs of Sunset exposure to sell those caftans and diamond water without actually sharing anything about her personal life.

Her partner Jermaine Jackson Jr. has never appeared on the show (aside from a quick cameo) and she is pretty much just there to promote herself and comment on everyone else’s problems. Sure, she has an interesting persona with the “Persian Pop Princess” shtick, but she is very closed off- especially in comparison to the rest of the cast who lays it all out there. I have no idea how she pulled this off, but props to her.

Why is Asa Soltan Rahmati on reality television? Until Asa got pregnant she had no real story line on Shahs of Sunset other than promoting caftans and diamond water. She shares nothing from her personal life and the “Persian Pop Priestess” act is really wearing thin.

Mercedes “MJ” Javid and Mike Shouhed are tired of putting themselves out there on Shahs of Sunset while Asa shares absolutely nothing and they made that very clear during their appearance on Watch What Happens Live.

One of the biggest and most anticipated season premieres is happening tonight, folks. If you can stand the gratuitous violence and confusing story line, then I would be talking about Game of Thrones. If you can stand the gratuitous ridiculousness and idiotic story line, I’m talking about Shahs of Sunset. SOS isn’t totally devoid of violence either, thanks to Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi and her face clawing ways, you just won’t have to endure quite as much of it since she has apparently learned to meditate this season.

But before we delve into the abyss of GG’s tragic life, we have to drop in on everyone’s favorite sloppy soulmates, Mercedes “MJ” Javid and fiancé Tommy Feight. Yes, they are still together and yes, still engaged. In fact, they have even moved in together and I’m assuming that happened yesterday, by the looks of it. There are boxes, lucite stripper heels and empty bottles of vodka strewn about as MJ’s dog is busy licking the wrapper of a cheese and crackers packet that is discarded on the couch. MJ kicks her dirty feet up and we learn that a filthy apartment isn’t the scariest part of this living situation –it’s the fact that her mother Vida lives in the same complex. As in, she can look down from her tower of misery and see MJ’s place.

After one of their most tumultuous seasons, the Shahs of Sunset are back for more. And if you thought last season was a bit too TMI, just wait until you see what’s in store this time around.

Asa Soltan Rahmati, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, Mike Shouhed, Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Reza Farahan and Shervin Roohparvar are all on board for the sixth season and will introduce us to newcomer Destiney Rose

The last Shahs of Sunset season was a rough one for Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi and based on the trailer for Season 6 she is in for quite the ride again.

GG dished on the upcoming season in an exclusive interview with Reality Tea. GG Gharachedaghi addressed the lingering tension with Reza Farahan from last season, her short-lived marriage, friendships within the cast, her battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and her upcoming projects.

Your first look at Shahs of Sunset season 6 is here. The series returns on July 16th and in the first trailer, it looks as dramatic as ever. We can expect a lot of Reza crying, the girls fighting, cheating, drinking, more baby contemplation and on and on.

Most of the Shahs of Sunset crew is back again this season, including Mike Shouhed, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Reza Farahan, Shervin Roohparvar, and Asa Soltan Rahmati. We’ll also meet a friend of Reza’s, Destiney Rose. Hopefully he’s a better friend to her than he was to Lilly Ghalichi. Mike’s ex-wife Jessica Parido also joins the season as she and Mike contemplate getting back together.

Golnesa

At this point, the press coverage for Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s quickie marriage is longer than the relationship itself. After randomly getting married to Shalom Yeroushalmi, absolutely no one was surprised when they announced their separation.

In related news, absolutely no one is surprised that she officially filed for divorce. I’m sure this super short marriage will be dragged out way too long during the next Shahs of Sunset season, but I have to assume that the divorce process itself should go pretty quickly. I mean they were barely together and they had zero kids. There shouldn’t be too much to sort out in terms of this breakup.
