Mercedes “MJ” Javid

The Shahs of Sunset cast (Reza Farahan, Mercedes Javid, Lilly Ghalichi, Mike Shouhed, Asa Soltan Rahmati and Golnesa GG Gharachedaghi) has 2.3 million reasons to smile today!  The numbers are in from the season 2 premiere on Sunday night and the show blew the doors off their previous record, which was the season 1 finale.  2.3 million viewers tuned in on Sunday night – an increase of 106%! 

Asa can breathe a sigh of relief  – she won't have to dig up the gold coins in her floor now to replenish her checking account. 

In other Shahs news, model Niki Ghazian has fired off a strongly worded letter to Bravo, requesting that they stop referring to newcomer Lilly Ghalichi as "Persian Barbie".  Niki claims that the name belongs to her and she wants Bravo to remove any promos that use the nickname in reference to Lilly.

This season on Shahs of SunsetReza Farahan faces a "gaylife crisis," Asa Soltan Rahmati redefines "financial crisis," Mercedes "MJ" Javid searches for a man, Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi fails to act like a big girl despite pursuing a big-girl job, Mike Shouhed finds "the one," and newcomer Lilly Ghalichi thinks they're all nuts.

Reza Farahan opens season two, gushing about the new girl in his life. She doesn't straighten her hair, she doesn't pluck her eyebrows, she's not hung up on designers clothes… she's GG Asa Soltan Rahmati. Hanging at Asa's reclaimed home, the two bond over floors, unkempt eyebrows, and one very special toilet. Reza spies the work of art, freaks, and says, "This bitch has, like, a $4,000 toilet. That toilet had a little midget in it that will lick your butt clean when you're done pooping." 

Asa is stressed about money. She has $500 in her bank account and needs to find a source of income in the next few days. This admission comes not even a minute after she boasts about tiling her floors in $30,000 worth of gold coins, which she probably washes with diamond water. Rich/not rich people are confusing. 

MJ Javid drives her mom and her Mom's bird off a cliff to the bird sitter's house. After hearing about Vida's upcoming month-long vacation (hence the bird sitter), MJ approaches the idea of a family vacation. Vida tells MJ that she'd rather put needles into her eyes than go on vacation with her. Lovely. To retaliate, MJ encourages her dog to terrorize her mom's bird. Personally, I would have pulled over, while purposely failing to signal, and dumped the mom and her stupid bird on the side of the road.

Judging from the turnout for the launch of his new book, I don’t think Andy Cohen is “over” his Housewives.

Andy’s new book “Most Talkative: Stories From the Front Lines of Pop Culture” released this week and he celebrated in style – with all of his favorite Bravolebrity BFFs and his mom, Evelyn (seen above)!

Among the reality stars in attendance at the SUR Lounge: Brad Goreski, Alexis Bellino, Gretchen Rossi, Slade Smiley, Dimitri Charalambopoulos, Camille Grammer, Kathy Griffin, Jenni Pulos, Heather Dubrow, Taylor Armstrong, Asa Soltan Rahmati, Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Reza Farahan, Patti Stanger, Brandi Glanville, Kathy Hilton, Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof, Paul Nassif, Mike Shouhed and more!

And of course, it wouldn’t be a true Bravo event without some drama! Tamara Tattles got some juicy behind-the-scenes gossip – including rumors that many of the Housewives weren’t invited, despite Andy claiming they were ALL included. Also, Taylor Armstrong was reportedly enjoying the free booze – shocking, we know! You can get the rest of the dish here.

Reza Farahan wants us to know that not all reality TV is scripted and “steered” by the powers-that-be. (aka Ryan Seacrest).

The Shahs of Sunset star says that he and his fellow cast mates are the real deal.  And unlike some of those others famewhores on the air, you will find this gang together even when they’re not filming.  “It’s not a reality show based on characters that were brought together randomly — I had dinner with GG last night, I talk to Mike everyday, MJ and Sammy are in Coachella for a music festival together right now.”

Reza says that no story lines are contrived or forced on them.  You know, it was their own decision to gift each other with colonics and film it for the world to see (and be traumatized by).  “Ryan would call, email, text, check in but it was just to make sure we were happy, make sure we were OK, make sure that whatever feedback, whether positive or negative that we were OK with it. But it was never to steer us. There’s no steering.”

Also not fake (besides Reza’s pornstache)? The intimate details of his life.  He is committed to spreading his fabulousness to all the land and in the only way he knows how: through brutal honesty and an “all or nothing” attitude.  “You can’t have expectations of wanting to bring about change in your community if you have one foot in and one foot out…. There’s so much homophobia and it was either: not do it, or if I was going to do it, I was going to put it all out there. And that’s what I did.”

Reza is okay with putting it all out there, but he said that his cast mates have a lot of regret over things they did or said on camera, but he didn’t dish any details. Perhaps

Reza is hoping that by sharing their lives, they’ll do some good to break down some of the misunderstandings out there about Persians in general.  “We’re humanizing a group of people that have been characterized and misrepresented as terrorists. If I’m a hard-working gay man who’s proud of himself and his family supports him, I want to showcase that instead of what’s been showcased since I got to this country, which is that we’re terrorists, we all have camels in our driveways and we all own an Uzi, all of which are not true.”

Even though he’s wanting to bring some change and give viewers a new perspective on Persians, he also isn’t the spokesperson for the entire community.  “At the end of the day we’re not trying to represent anything other than ourselves. I wasn’t elected by the Persian House of Representatives to represent my people and this is not a documentary on the plight of the Persian people. This is about six fun, fabulous people living in L.A., period.”

After seeing themselves in the six season one episodes, I’m dying to see how they’ll behave in season two since some of them have regrets. Hopefully it doesn’t get boring!

Are you ready for more mustaches, diamond water, taser guns, parties and cat fighting? Bravo just announced that it has officially renewed Shahs of Sunset for a second season!

The news isn’t too shocking since the ratings were increasing with each one of the six episodes.  The season finale was the most watched, with 1.5 million viewers, which was a 20% increase over the previous week’s show.

The original cast consists of Reza Farahan, Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, Mike Shouhed, Asa Rahmati, and Sammy Younai.  We’re assuming that the entire cast will return, but I wonder if they’ll add any of the side players (like Anita Gohari) to the full-time roster?

If we’re voting anyone off the island, I’m checking Sammy’s name on my ballot.

TELL US – ARE YOU HAPPY ABOUT SEASON 2? ARE YOU HOOKED ON THE SHOW? OR DO YOU WISH IT WOULD GO AWAY?

After just six weeks on the air, we bid farewell to the Shahs of Sunset! Last night’s episode had its fair share of personal growth, bad blind dates, and varied levels of douchiness.  (We’re looking at you, Sammy Younai)

Mike Shouhed and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi head out together for a morning workout.  GG is apparently new to this exercise thing and leaves all of her jewelry on while attempting an intense workout.  When she’s finished, GG looks a little sweaty in her (nearly falling off every three seconds) jogging pants, yet her eye makeup is perfectly in tact.

Mike lets GG know that the two of them will never get together, despite the fact that he thinks she’d be a great catch for someone (once she gets her anger issues in check).  She’s determined to learn how to chill out and let things slide.  GG reveals that she hasn’t been on a date in five years.

Reza Farahan and Mercedes “MJ” Javid spend some time talking about their recent trip to NYC to see Reza’s dad.  Reza says the situation with his dad has helped him to grow and he isn’t taking crap from anyone.  Reza decides that since he’s found peace with his father, MJ should confront her mom, Vida.  Reza shares that MJ’s mom has treated her terribly the entire time that he’s known her and even goes so far as to say that he doesn’t think Vida loves MJ.  MJ doesn’t take that last bit very well and is irritated with Reza’s opinion.  I was feeling Reza’s friendship for MJ until he started ripping on Vida for constantly being critical of MJ’s weight and more.  Just two episodes ago MJ told us that Reza has given her hell about her weight for YEARS.  Pot meet kettle.
