It seems like every cast member on Shahs of Sunset is done with Asa Soltan Rahmati and her vagueness. No one expects someone to share every single bit of her life just because she’s on a reality TV show, but what do we know about Asa? She has been on this show the whole time and all she has done is sell caftans and try to convince us that diamond water is a real thing. No wonder Mercedes “MJ” Javid is lashing out.
The rest of this cast really bares it all. Sure, it takes a lot of poking and prodding for some of them to actual admit the truth – cough, cough Shervin Roohparvar and Mike Shouhed – but they all end up putting themselves out there for the sake of being real for the show… except for Asa. As expected, MJ did not hold back when she was asked about Asa during her latest Watch What Happens Live appearance and Andy Cohen and Jeff Lewis were living for it.
It is so tough to keep up with Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. One second she’s single. Then she’s engaged. A minute later she’s married. Then she’s in the middle of a tumultuous divorce after a very short-live marriage with Shalom Yeroushalmi . Now GG is actually dating Shalom again. This is so surprising, yet not at all. The drama just never stops with the Shahs of Sunset cast.
Even Shervin Roohparvar who was a super lovable friend to GG Gharachedaghi last season with no story line of his own is in some deep shit this year. After Tara, a married woman, called out Shervin for sleeping with her. He denied denied denied. Now he’s still denying, but admitting that he did get with a bunch of other girls even though he has a girlfriend.
No pregnancy has caused as much of a stir as Asa Soltan Rahmati’s on this season of Shahs of Sunset. From Mercedes “MJ” Javid taking Asa’s pregnancy announcement as a “sign” that she herself should get pregnant to the entire cast questioning the conception of her then unborn baby, Asa’s pregnancy has provided more story lines than she ever has this whole time.
Obviously, this doesn’t sit well with the self-proclaimed Persian Pop Priestess, and she had some choice words for MJ when she and Destiney Rose were guests on Watch What Happens Live.
Love her or hate her, everyone who watches Shahs of Sunset has to admit that Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi always brings the drama. She has beefed with every single cast member, and she’s even had drama with her own sister Leila Gharache in front of the cameras even though Leila’s never been a cast member.
On the total opposite end of the spectrum is Asa Soltan Rahmati, who has also been an original cast member the whole time, but has revealed next to no personal information about her life – something the cast members are finally starting to take issue with this season.
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.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

Bravo needs to get a camera crew over to the home of Sammy Younai’s parents because some good reality TV is unfolding – no script necessary! Sammy Tweeted earlier tonight that people are threatening his folks and all because of Reza Farahan’s sexual orientation.
Sammy took his outrage to Twitter and is hoping that someone might be able to help solve the mystery of who the culprits are.
“2psycho’s went to my parents home last night and threaten them, if anyone knows anything please let me know. A police report, cops, cyber search of twitter and face book. Crazy f*****s where pissed I was friends with a gay guy.”
Speaking of Reza, he’s been posting some hilarious “Reza Rants” videos on his YouTube channel. Even though “so you want me to be your gay bestie” is one of my favorites, he did share a serious message for the “It Gets Better” initiative that’s worth a look. Reza says that as a young man he felt like he wasn’t “made right”, but something his mom did changed his whole world. You can see the video below.
Sunday night on WWHL, Mercedes “MJ” Javid said that fame is going to Reza’s head. Reza does seem to be the breakout star of the show, but the entire cast is finding a way to cash in like a Kardashian. Asa Rahmati has been pimping out her music, Reza is running with the rockstar status of his mustache (it has its own Twitter account!), and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi is working on a line of hair extensions and designing clothes, but not for ants or ugly people!
GG says that she’s trying to branch out, maybe enough so that she doesn’t have to rely on dad for a paycheck anymore! “I’m trying to really make something of myself.” Golnesa says that she’s not trying to be the next Kim Kardashian, but she’s up for new opportunities: “Whatever presents itself, if it seems safe like ‘Shahs of Sunset’ which wasn’t exploiting us, it was just fun, I’d be (up for it).”
So far there’s no word on a second season being greenlit, but the first “season” (aka six episdes) did so well that I can’t imagine Bravo not going ahead with it. GG says that she doesn’t mind the way she was portrayed in these intro episodes. “I’ve gotten a lot of feedback and I feel like that comes with the territory. I could have been a nun and they would have knocked me for being a nun.”
Nuns don’t carry 8″ blades and taser guns. Just sayin’.
