Another season, another reason to floss for the Shahs of Sunset, and let’s hope they bring the gold!
We open with a look back on Reza Farahan standing up Adam Neely at the altar in Thailand. That would be enough to ruin any normal relationship but who’s that creeping in the background while Reza sleeps? It’s Adam! These two lovebirds stayed together and made it work. They even added an adorable little rescue pup, Tini, to the family. I am really happy these two worked it out and Reza realized that the grass isn’t always greener. On Reza’s short list of goals: get married, build a house, have fun with friends and family…oh and have sex and buy gold. Naturally.
Newlyweds Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido are busy drinking free Fiji water from her Dad and working out to keep in tip top shape before their marriage crashes and burns. Because the couples that sweats together stays together. No irony or anything here. Mike starts to wax poetic about how amazing – and how hard – it is to be married for four months; apparently, he has to ask permission to do everything. I’m assuming Mike has managed to find some time to himself given that they are already getting divorced because of his cheating. I doubt Jessica gave permission on that one. I can’t wait to see how that plays out this season.
MJ says that trying to toss the birthday cake was an epic fail because it was too heavy. Which is probably for the best because I don’t think Bobby would’ve been too happy about that one and Asifa was already wound up.
The night’s poll is which Shah guy is the hottest: Reza, Shervin or Mike. MJ says it’s definitely Shervin.
Bravoteases, “As the Shahs each embark on a new life journey, they face challenges in business, love, and lifelong friendships. When rumors of infidelity and irresponsible lifestyles shake the group to its core, allegiances are put to the test. Can they come together and maintain the bonds of friendship through the good times as well as the bad?” In other words, rinse and repeat of Season 2, 3, and 4. They rip each other apart when the cameras are on, then all is well when filming ends. #SoPredictable
Lilly Ghalichi has been missed on Shahs of Sunset, but she’s moved on to bigger and better things. This week she sat down with her close friend Nik Richie to talk babies, business, and boobs (in the form of silicone, former co-stars and former loves).
Lilly opened up for the first time on what happened with Dhar Mann, the one-time fiance she was jet setting around the world with. Lilly admits she was duped big time. Nik says he tried to warn Lilly many times that this guy was shady and she readily admits that she fell for the scam hook, line and sinker. “I’m not that great of a judge of people, even though I’m an attorney and am supposed to be an excellent judge of character, I see the best in everyone. I’m so naive.”
Mike told Page Six that he is trying to stay “super busy,” adding, “This divorce was very hard on me – emotionally, physically, mentally. I spent many, many days, that turned into weeks and months, staying at home, reflecting on my life, and focusing on myself. A lot of thinking, reading, meditating, yoga.”
More wedding bells for reality TV? Shahs of Sunset cast member Mercedes “MJ” Javidis engaged..and as ‘luck’ would have it, smack in the middle of filming for the next season of the show.
About a week ago MJ posted the photo above on Instagram, likely hoping to stir up questions about the rock on THAT finger. This weekend she shared with E! that she is engaged to her “longtime” boyfriend Tommy Feight. “Yes, it’s true. I got engaged a few months ago. I’m ecstatic. I’m so happy.”
Earlier this month Jessica Parido, Mike Shouhed‘s wife of 8 months, filed for divorce. The reason: Mike’s incessant cheating! After discovering scandalous texts and messages from other women, Jessica learned Mike had been cheating throughout their entire relationship! About a year ago, Mike’s (alleged) former mistress, Emerald Wilson-Bey, came forward by writing a book, My Nights With The Shah: How Not To Date A Celebrity, which detailed her racy affair with the Shahs Of Sunset star! We’ve “sat” on this for a while, waiting for the right time to share the details and allegations from the book.
Emerald, a high-end real estate agent specializing in ‘pocket listings’ and relocation services, initially met Mike when she was on a work trip in Beverly Hills. Emerald imagined their passionate connection would translate into both sex and success! Detailing their steamy nights in the upper echelons of Beverly Hills, Emerald envisioned them becoming a power couple – instead she quickly realized Mike wasn’t nearly as single as he pretended to be. Funny how reality television exposes people’s private lives…
Below we share some of the highlights from Emerald’s salacious story, including Mike’s reaction to learning she was writing a book, how Bravo discovered her existence, and if Jessica knew!
