Happy Valentine's Day, y'all! Whether you're celebrating with the love of your life or just an extra large black coffee like this gal, make sure to partake in some candy and go out of your way to make even strangers feel appreciated. To be honest, I've never understood this holiday. Even when I've been in serious relationships, I think people should strive to do grand gestures for loved ones any and every day…not just the day that Hallmark pressures them. Perhaps I'm feeling bitter because I didn't get flowers this morning…
Do you know who is celebrating today in a new relationship? Why, it's Mercedes "MJ" Javid from Shahs of Sunset! The perpetually single Persian party girl is finally settling down with a new guy…or trying to, at least! It's hard to say if MJ will ever really calm her wild ways.
Shahs of Sunset season 2 has officially been announced and Bravo has released the cast. Sammy Younai is out andLilly Ghalichi is in! Promising plenty of drama and lots of challenges for its Persian princes and princesses, the cast will deal with struggles both between themselves and in their personal lives.
This season Reza Farahan will face a full-on "gaylife crisis" while MJ Javid decides to finally pursue a committed relationship. Mike Shouhed finds the girl of his dream, but there's one snafu – she's not Jewish! Asa Soltan Rahmati's dream of becoming a Persian pop princess is threatened by a financial crisis.
GG Gharachedaghi decides it's finally time for her earn a living so she starts a business with her sister. Unfortunately her anger management issues cause major problems. And new girl Lilly seems to have it all on the surface – but balancing her business and her personal life are proving to be more difficult than it looks!
No word on whether last seasons dramaful extra Anita Gohari will be returning, but I hope so. I'm surprised she wasn't promoted to a full-season cast member. I'm also surprised they haven't brought on an extra guy to replace Sammy!
Below are the official cast photos – and the trailer for season 2!
Shahs of Sunset premieres Dec 2 at 10/9c on Bravo!
