Shahs of Sunset

Shahs of Sunset recap

On every Bravo reality show, there comes a crucial point in the filming of the season where it’s time to get the cast up and out of their element, all for the sake of the viewer’s entertainment. Shahs of Sunset fans, I bring you last night’s episode of the cast trip. Why they chose to do it so early in the season is still a bit of a mystery to me but let’s just go along for the ride like we do everything else.

Before vacation commences, Reza Farahan does have some important business to work on at home: humoring husband Adam Neely into thinking he will consider a surrogate to have their children. They meet the doctor, who looks like the villain from every recent James Bond movie I’ve seen, and settle into his office. But while Adam is ready to talk babies, Reza is transfixed with the doctor’s taste in furniture and calculates in his head how much the desk costs and how his surrogacy money would be paying for it.

Happy Sunday, Reality Tea readers! Tonight we have all new episodes of Shahs of Sunset, 90 Day Fiance and more, including Watch What Happens Live.

Tonight on Shahs of Sunset, the cast lands in Israel and everyone except for Asa Soltan Rahmati and MJ Javid is detained. Reza Farahan and Adam Neely continue to explore surrogacy and adoption. Golnesa Gharachedaghi nervously brings her boyfriend to meet her parents, who may not approve of her new man since he’s Jewish. The crew questions whether MJ is really ready to be a mom after a wild night out.

With all of the constantly changing friendships on Shahs of Sunset, the one friendship that seems to be pretty stable is the friendship between Shervin Roohparvar and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. No matter what she does or who she offends, Shervin just looks for the best in her and is loyal to no end.

Other than turning up, defending GG, and providing some comic relief between screaming matches, Shervin started off this season in a serious relationship with Annalise.

That “Peace In The Middle East” Halloween party that Reza Farahan threw on the last Shahs of Sunset episode was beyond outrageous. He had to know that it wasn’t going to go over well with the fandom.

So of course Reza had to answer for that unusual theme and his “F*ck Iran” comment that he made when he and Shervin Roohparvar were Andy Cohen’s guests on Watch What Happens Live.

With a tumultuous and long-standing feud between Reza Farahan and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi finally resolved, the Shahs of Sunset can get back to more important things, like peace in the Middle East. Just how does a Shah go about tackling the task that has eluded generations of people worldwide? By throwing a politically incorrect party, of course!

Reza and Mike Shouhed nurse their hangovers at lunch, while they recover from Shervin Rpoohparvar’s Malibu party the night before. Mike never went to bed and when Mercedes “MJ” Javid shows up, it looks like she hasn’t either….for days. Talk turns from being hungover to how much Mike’s family means to him and that includes family in Israel that he hasn’t seen in over ten years. Hey, wouldn’t it be “the dope-est” if all of the Shahs went to Israel too? Apparently so, according to Reza. He is looking to connect with the Jewish side of his life via a posh vacation with his friends. When they try and get MJ on board, she initially balks, saying she doesn’t want to leave her father while he is sick. But she quickly realizes that she needs a break from her stressful life and I guess another cast trip with this bunch of hooligans is something she might find relaxing. She thrives in chaos after all!

We’re back for a third episode in the new season of Shahs of Sunset tonight. Reza Farahan tries to sell the group on a trip to Israel. He throws a Halloween party with the “peace in the Middle East” theme, but not everyone is on board.

Also on tonight’s episode, MJ Javid and her fiance Tommy talk more in-depth about their desire to become parents – sooner rather than later. And speaking of parenthood, pregnant Asa Soltan Rahmati tries juggling her business with the help of her family.

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.
