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.
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.
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.
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.
I have no idea how Asa Soltan Rahamati ended up being a reality TV star. I get that she’s had years of history with the other cast members on Shahs of Sunset, but she doesn’t share much of her own reality on this show. We really know nothing about Asa other than her opinions on other people’s drama and the products she wants to sell. I’m curious about how her pregnancy and life as a new mom will factor into the show.
Asa is gushing about being a new mom, but I wonder if she’s even going to mention it at all on Shahs of Sunset. For years, we’ve seen zero aspects of her personal life, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she just never addressed her baby bump and they just cropped her kid out of scenes. I know I sound harsh, but I can’t be the only one who thinks this, right? Well, Asa has had a lot to say about her baby and boyfriend Jermaine Jackson Jr. and it might be all we get given her past history on this show, so check it out.
