Did you miss the Shahs of Sunset after a little Memorial Day Weekend break? We had a week to catch our breath and recover from the ambush wedding of Reza Farahan and Adam Neely and I’m not sure that was enough after watching last night’s drama. You know what they say, there’s no rest for the weary and that especially applies to reality TV fans.
We pick up right where we left off, in Palm Springs, with Reza and Adam driving off into the proverbial sunset, which was actually the darkness of night. The rest of the gang is left at the restaurant, looking glassy eyed and hungover already. Mike Shouhed is busy arguing on the phone with estranged wife, Jessica Parido. Mercedes “MJ” Javid, crooked weave and unmanageable in her drunkenness, uses that as an opportunity to snipe at Mike about his relationship. Boyfriend Tommy Feight and a surprisingly sober Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi play the voices of reason and shove her into an Escalade but they can’t shut off her slurring tirade.
Things are continuing to spiral for Reza Farahan andShahs of Sunset co-star GG Gharachedaghi. This morning we shared a new interview that Reza Farahan gave to New York Live, explaining why he’s suddenly bashing GG, referring to her as a snake. In that interview he claimed that GG “jumped” him and Adam. Today he took to Instagram to elaborate on this – with photos, but then had a change of heart and quickly deleted it. A quick reader grabbed it all before it went poof!
On tonight’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Reza Farahan proved once again that he’s the worst friend in the world, unless you’re Mike Shouhed. He had negative things to say about everyone from Jessica Parido to MJ Javid to Golnesa. Adam is the bartender tonight and is wearing the most god-awful 70s-inspired crocheted jumpsuit I’ve ever laid eyes on. (added a partial photo below) Oh, and Luis D. Ortiz from Million Dollar Listing New York is here, too. Poor guy picked the wrong night to make an appearance.
They start out discussing that time when GG made out with Luis. He says it was just one kiss. Reza, being the class act he always is, says a string of negative things about GG and tells Luis he hopes he had a lot of alcohol to rinse it away… And then a few minutes later he makes another comment and refers to GG as “the snake.”
We’re expecting tonight to be one of the more ridiculous episodes of Shahs of Sunset– and considering some of the past episodes, that’s saying a lot.
Tonight Reza Farahan drags everyone to dinner for a surprise wedding. The wedding is not a surprise for the guests, the nuptials are a surprise for Adam Neely. Reza starts out the ambush by giving a tacky speech that’s filled with TMI as Asa Soltan Rahmati puts on a gold bedazzled headpiece and starts officiating their wedding, all the while Adam is trying to grasp what in the holy hell is happening. Will he object and flee from this bungled back room mess?
This week, the Shahs of Sunset continue to contemplate how to break through to their old friend Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, who is struggling with issues of anger and excessive drinking. A group trip is in order and they waste no time getting the show on the road, so to speak.
GG is in her apartment, cleaning her knives and feeling sorry for herself because of her “declining health” with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I guess Asa Soltan Rahmati got the invite for this pity party and stops by to give GG her “magical” green sauce. Does everything in Asa’s life have magical powers? Note that GG has no problem shoveling carrots and green sauce into her mouth with her RA-riddled hand. GG begins to tell Asa about her fight with Mercedes “MJ” Javid and decides they all need to remember why they fell in love with each other in the first place. GG suggests the best way to do that is to go camping with the group so no one can hear their screams. They call Reza Farahan to explain the plan and he feigns excitement but agrees. GG gives Asa a hearty high-five (with her bad hand).
MJ is not in the forgiving mood when it comes to Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, who is almost in the NFL (No Friends Left) zone if it weren’t for Shervin Roohparvar. MJ has more important things to worry about, like the virility of beau Tommy Feight’s sperm. Asa Soltan Rahmati, never one to miss out on an opportunity to spend pointless amounts of money and energy on priestess-y things, prepares for the secret wedding of Reza and Adam, who still has no idea he is going to be getting surprise married soon.
Last week, we watched what theShahs of Sunset do what they do best – throw expensive parties and drink too much. This week, we are starting to see how each cast member’s story line will shape up over the course of the season.
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.
