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.
Jessica Paridohas been pretty much the only storyline for Mike Shouhed this season on Shahs of Sunset, well not counting that shoe venture he may or may not having going… Despite being the one cheated who was cheated on, the cast is having a field day throwing nasty digs at Jessica over her decision to divorce Mike and move on from their hot mess of a marriage. And this week on social media the nastiness continued.
Mercedes “MJ” Javid threw a shot at Jessica, Tweeting “I’m not going lie. If certain people decided to go str8 from a husband to another man for a range rover.. Who am i to judge. #getThatCarHun.” Jealousy is an ugly thing, y’all. Sorry, MJ, I don’t care if Jessica walked out Mike’s door and found this new guy on the curb 13 seconds later. That marriage was over the minute Mike’s penis didn’t stay put.
The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here: on tonight’s episode of Shahs of Sunset, we finally get to see the nuptials of former runaway groom Reza Farahan and his long-time boyfriend, Adam Neely. It’s a moment that has been highly anticipated by both viewers and the Shahs since last season’s shocker of Reza calling off their wedding in Thailand. There is only one person who hasn’t been anxiously awaiting this wedding – the other groom, Adam. Because he has NO IDEA this is happening. That’s right folks, you’re invited to an ambush wedding!
To lovingly set the stage of “marriages that shouldn’t happen,” we open with the not-that-sad Shoe Sultan, Mike Shouhed. It’s not even six months into his marriage to Jessica Parido and she has hit the trails in search of greener, less cheating grass. Reza stops by with bags of groceries and wants to know why Jessica left. Mike explains that he has been rude and neglectful of her and she decided that’s not the type of life she wants. Mike says he doesn’t blame her for teaching him a lesson. Clearly, Mike is feeling sorry for himself, and while Mike’s busy talking about how wonderful Jessica is, doesn’t mind throwing her under the bus by acting like she walked out over some trivial matter.
Last night the reality stars converged in West Hollywood to celebrate with OK! Magazine’s So Sexy LA party. Stars from Shahs of Sunset, Vanderpump Rules, Teen Mom and more turned out for the event.
Shahs stars GG Gharachedaghi, Shervin, and MJ Javid were in attendance, but MJ’s fiance Tommy Feight sat this one out. GG got into the spirit of the event, wearing her best OK! pink bra under a somewhat see-through black dress.
Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham smooched her on-again/off-again boyfriend Simon as she posed for pics.
AlthoughJax Taylor wasn’t photographed on the pink carpet, he was headed to the event, which was also attended by his co-starsJames Kennedyand Lala Kent. The show just started filming the new season yesterday and Jax had some choice words for James ahead of the event, “If I don’t kill that piece of sh$t tonight, he should play the lottery.” So, clearly James is still pushing every last button of Jax’s. 😉
Mercedes Javid is tired of everyone questioning her totally amazing, romantical, perfect relationship to total non-famewhore fiancé Tommy Feight, sick of her mother Vida imposing her negative opinion, and she wants everyone to know Tommy is no gold digger or loser – he’s her man, and she’s standing by him because she’s in love.
After years of drowning her mother’s bad opinions of her life in booze, and sloppily tuning out “best friend” Reza Farahan‘s rude comments, but made out of love and concern (SARCASM), MJ is finally standing up for her own happiness. Or at least all the happiness a Wedding By Bravo can buy!
A quick recap within the recap of their relationship: Mike and Jessica meet – she was young, beautiful, and impressionable and he was…available? Not sure what exactly she saw in him, even back then. They date, she converts to Judaism for him and spends years pushing for an engagement with laser focus. Arguments ensue, cheating rumors endure, and they get married anyway so Mike could floss in a $10K Tom Ford tuxedo (does Tom Ford offer partial refunds?). Now, they are six months into the union and it has less of a chance of survival than Mike’s shoe empire. We all know how it eventually turns out but this is the beginning of the end, playing out for all viewers to see.
Mike Shouhed is busy taking what I can only assume are purchase orders for shoes on his cell while the women folk cook a pretty sad looking spread of shrimp and veggies on the grill. Awkward small talk is being made and you can tell GG is already drunk by the time she cross eyes up Mike to tell her why she is so angry at him. She doesn’t like how he talks to her and Mike sets his phone down long enough to apologize profusely and say he will let it all go. GG slurs some type of response to indicate she can move on. Asa Soltan Rahmati wastes no time turning this into a spiritual event. Asa says she wants to throw their issues into the fire while Mike and GG hug it out.
