Last night, the Shahs of Sunset reunion ended without Jessica Parido sitting in the hot seat, with Mike Shouhed agreeing to go out for post reunion drinks with the ‘friends’ who just trashed him for hours, and with some “to be continued … next season” nonsense.
Asa Soltan Rahmati and Reza Farahan shared their thoughts on Mike’s place in the group and the reunion as a whole with Bravo. When asked if Mike can “make things right” again, Asa said, “Mike can absolutely make things right with the group if he cares enough. We go way back. Our friendships are sacred.” If “if he cares enough” is code for “if he begs master Reza enough” and “sacred” is code for “dysfunctional,” then I totally agree.
Despite the drama this season, Mike and Jessica were married in March.
“Planning the wedding was surreal,” shared Mike. “I couldn’t believe that I was planning what will be one of the biggest nights of mine and Jessica’s life. I was a Groomzilla! I was part of every single decision made – from invitations, venue, flowers, food tasting, band, DJ, and even the music selection. It was 350 of our closest friends! Hundreds of thousands of dollars spent… it had to be perfect.”
Season four of Shahs of Sunset is rapidly coming to an end. And I’m not mad about it. The season finale airs tonight at 9/8c and the reunion airs Monday, June 8 at 8/7c. The reunion airs an hour earlier than normal to make room for the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Despite the fact that not much happened this season (hence why I am ready for it to end), Mercedes “MJ” Javid and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi have promised a “very intense” reunion. “We have a lot of drama,” shared GG. “The reunion was on another level this year, another extreme. And there was a lot of yelling, a lot of cursing, people walking off the stage.”
This week, MJ planned Reza‘s party and Asa planned Adam‘s party. Reza is all about the raunch. “When you’re planning a bachelor party for your gay best friend, who is a whore and wants to sow his wild oats, it’s important to say, ‘Yes. Yes. Yes.'” said MJ. “The sky’s the limit; lots of gold, lots of dollars, lots of toys.”
Adam and Asa, on the other hand, threw around ideas like a beautiful picnic, a petting zoo (no puns included), and a scavenger hunt. MJ refused to invite Asa to Reza‘s bachelor party, so Reza agreed to keep it a secret from both Asa and Adam. Asa and Reza took to their blogs to share their thoughts on the bachelor party drama on Shahs of Sunset this week.
In addition to his douchetastic interview on the after show, Mike took to his blog to share his thoughts on the reconciliation dinner.
“Jessica is my ride or die!” said Mike. “She was furious at the way my friends had been treating me lately – gossip, sh– talking, and making me feel secluded from the group. I would vent to her about how upset I was, fueling her fire. Then the fact that all of them knew GG [Gharachedaghi] was spreading rumors made us even more disappointed my friends never told me so I could approach GG and get to the bottom of it.”
First, Mike bragged about how much gets hit on now that he’s married.
When asked if he and Jessica went into the reconciliation dinner with the same goal, Mike shared, “No. Jessica wanted to be heard and make her point of how they all did wrong to her and me. I wanted us to all come together and sing Kum Ba Yah and be like, ‘It’s fine. I love you. I get it. It happened. How can we fix it?'”
This week, Mike planned a “reconciliation dinner” so they could all forgive and forget. And sing Kum Ba Yah. Mike is an idiot. Jessica came to the dinner with a different agenda. One that Reza didn’t appreciate.
“I was very shocked that Mike allowed the reconciliation dinner to go south. If he was smart, he would have asked Jessica to hold all of her insults for a later date, maybe two or three dinners later, once we were on better ground,” Reza suggested. “Jessica was clearly not interested in reconciling. She came with an agenda, and her agenda was to insult us, point fingers, and to let us know loud and clear that she doesn’t give a f-ck about any of us.”
“I thought that something definitely did happen in Turkey,” continuedAsa, “but nobody will ever really know exactly what happened between the two of them. I think the polygraph test was really important to Golnesa, because she wanted everybody to know that she was not lying. And I guess bit of scientific fact is necessary sometimes.” Please. There’s more science happening on leftovers in my refrigerator than there is on a polygraph on a Bravo reality show.
