Season 2 of Shahs of Sunset has taken Bravo viewers by storm. The hard-partying Persian crew has learned from its network counterparts and created some over-the-top drama. Friendships have been formed and destroyed. Relationships break-up as quickly as they began. Whether Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi is swimming in whiskey and battling Asa Soltan Rahmati or Reza Farahan is stirring the pot, people are watching, and they are enthralled. Of course, don't even get me started on the shallowness of self-proclaimed Persian Barbie Lilly Ghalichi!
Mercedes "MJ" Javid was at the center of controversy this season, as she tried to play the middle man for friends turned foes. Her partying was called into question, and her relationship with biffle Reza suffered. Not phased, MJ has been sharing her path to self-confidence. As she should…MJ and cast mates have almost reached Housewives franchise status. The gang is getting a two-part reunion and a lost footage show. That's how you know you've arrived, Bravo style!
What do you get when you take a petite heiress with a penchant for extensions and then add a couple shots liters of whiskey? Why GG Gharachedagi of Shahs of Sunset fame, of course!
Without question, GG is my favorite star of the Bravo hit, and that's not just because she could take me in a street fight. Sure, she's a loose cannon, but she's also loyal to her friends. I think she has adopted the tough exterior to mask just how vulnerable she can be on the inside. However, if you listen to what GG is saying lately, she doesn't want you to believe she is a total softie.
Asa is headlining the Persh-a-Pelooza (Bravo's spelling) because she fancies herself the Persian Pop Priestess. Reza gives Asa a citrine stone for good luck, and Asa likes its energy. Lovely. She'll be making citrine milkshakes next season. #staytuned
Reza ruins Asa's warm and fuzzy rock feelings by insisting she have dinner with GG. Asa says she's far too busy playing pop star and spreading her love energy to worry about GG, adding, "GG's malicious. She doesn't value anything. There's nothing human about her. I don't want people like that in my life." Reza is like, Asa, I gave you a rock! Asa is like, You play dirty. Fine. One second of anything slightly wack, I'm out. Deuces!
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
The stars of Shahs of Sunset never fail to baffle amuse me. No, they amuse baffle me. Both? Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi thinks Shahs of Sunset is the 'Rosa Parks' of TV (true story) and Mercedes "MJ" Javidsays Bravo makes her out to be a hotter mess than she really is (at least she's a lovable hot mess). MJ also reveals who her non-Shahs friends are on Bravo!
Recalling Rosa Parks and her pivotal role in the civil rights movement, GGsays, "She got a lot of drama for [her refusal to give up her bus seat to a white man], but at the end of the day it started something so revolutionary and I feel like we are doing the same in respect of the entertainment industry."
"Americans have always had such a bad outlook on the Middle East, but we are the most successful and radiant culture," GG adds. "I'm just glad they are finally looking at us."
Asa needs to find the most perfect budget-friendly chakra-shattering diamond to make her diamond water. Diamonds are interesting little things. They contain vibrational energy that is the original energy from the creation of the world – and stuff. Asa meets with a diamond broker and puts her special brand of crazy right out there, saying, "I'm making beautiful diamond water infused with real diamonds." Diamond guy is like, Oh wow. Interesting. Let's go to the VIP room in the back. That's where we take our rich and/or cray cray customers.
When diamond guy brings out a small box of loose diamonds, the universe leads Asa to two envelopes. Asa holds a 9 1/2 carat diamond up to her forehead, feeling it with her third eye chakra, and says it feels amazing. Diamond guy tells Asa that this particular diamond – the most remarkable, vibrational, drinkable diamond on the planet -.costs $325,000. Asa is like, It's not that special, what else you got?
Uh-oh! Is GG Gharachedaghi going to make it down the aisle? A mere month after getting engaged to long-time friend turned love interest Omid Kalantari, it appears their relationship is more on the rocks than one of GG's cocktails!
The Shahs of Sunset star admits that wedding plans are well, not being planned right now as the couple struggles to make it work following their publicity stunt quickie engagement! "No wedding plans right now. I’m seeing what happens. We’re actually in a rocky place…," GG confessed to Wetpaint.
"We both jumped the gun a bit, so we’re trying to slow things down," she reveals. However GG says things are far from over. "We’re not going to split, but we are trying to figure out where to go from here."
