Coachella. It is where rich kids go and pretend they are hippies… err, um, rich kids… and a few reality stars who want to party like it’s 1969. It’s all very odd to me. I think Bethenny Frankel summed it up perfectly:
“So someone invited me to #douchella & I got overwhelmed,” she tweeted. “Isn’t it for 22 yr old models with suede purses & flower crowns?”
Last week, we watched what theShahs of Sunset do what they do best – throw expensive parties and drink too much. This week, we are starting to see how each cast member’s story line will shape up over the course of the season.
Another season, another reason to floss for the Shahs of Sunset, and let’s hope they bring the gold!
We open with a look back on Reza Farahan standing up Adam Neely at the altar in Thailand. That would be enough to ruin any normal relationship but who’s that creeping in the background while Reza sleeps? It’s Adam! These two lovebirds stayed together and made it work. They even added an adorable little rescue pup, Tini, to the family. I am really happy these two worked it out and Reza realized that the grass isn’t always greener. On Reza’s short list of goals: get married, build a house, have fun with friends and family…oh and have sex and buy gold. Naturally.
Newlyweds Mike Shouhed and Jessica Parido are busy drinking free Fiji water from her Dad and working out to keep in tip top shape before their marriage crashes and burns. Because the couples that sweats together stays together. No irony or anything here. Mike starts to wax poetic about how amazing – and how hard – it is to be married for four months; apparently, he has to ask permission to do everything. I’m assuming Mike has managed to find some time to himself given that they are already getting divorced because of his cheating. I doubt Jessica gave permission on that one. I can’t wait to see how that plays out this season.
MJ says that trying to toss the birthday cake was an epic fail because it was too heavy. Which is probably for the best because I don’t think Bobby would’ve been too happy about that one and Asifa was already wound up.
The night’s poll is which Shah guy is the hottest: Reza, Shervin or Mike. MJ says it’s definitely Shervin.
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.
Bravoteases, “As the Shahs each embark on a new life journey, they face challenges in business, love, and lifelong friendships. When rumors of infidelity and irresponsible lifestyles shake the group to its core, allegiances are put to the test. Can they come together and maintain the bonds of friendship through the good times as well as the bad?” In other words, rinse and repeat of Season 2, 3, and 4. They rip each other apart when the cameras are on, then all is well when filming ends. #SoPredictable
More wedding bells for reality TV? Shahs of Sunset cast member Mercedes “MJ” Javidis engaged..and as ‘luck’ would have it, smack in the middle of filming for the next season of the show.
About a week ago MJ posted the photo above on Instagram, likely hoping to stir up questions about the rock on THAT finger. This weekend she shared with E! that she is engaged to her “longtime” boyfriend Tommy Feight. “Yes, it’s true. I got engaged a few months ago. I’m ecstatic. I’m so happy.”
