Reza Farahan angered many fans when he lashed out at a neighbor, Sasha, and his brother, Salman, this week on Shahs of Sunset. He called Salman a "f-g" and dissed Sasha for being "very out loud" gay. Reza immediately fled the scene, of course, but Mike Shouhed stayed behind to console the devastated brothers.
An exchange on Twitter just before the episode aired suggested that Reza and Mike's relationship remains strained.
Later, Reza and Mike took to their Bravo blogs to share additional thoughts about the episode, and Reza went the "woe is me" route. Typical.
Confession time – Lilly Ghalichi is growing on me. Now, calm down. I'm not looking to join her fan club or saving her selfies to my desktop, but I find myself looking forward to her scene (no 's' necessary) on Shahs of Sunset lately.
Is she self-absorbed? Yes. Does her voice annoy my face off? Yes. But – she owns it! Lilly doesn't pretend to be anything but who she is. I respect that. I'm one of the few who appreciates Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi for the same reason.
Lilly brings some comic relief to an otherwise mean-spirited Shahs of Sunset these days. IMHO. Also funny? Comedian Amy Phillips making fun of Lilly!
I believe Reza had issues with Sasha, but I definitely do not believe this was their first ever encounter. I think Reza is a very mean-spirited and disrespectful person, and the producers used it to their advantage this week.
First up, Mike Shouhed visits a dermatology and hair restoration clinic to find out if his hair needs professional help, as his asshat of a friend Reza has suggested. Then Mike bring Reza for moral support – Mike doesn't need hair help, he needs brain help. Reza never stops making fun of Mike. Mike puffs out his chest and says he's going to shave Reza's head and mustache ("that Burt Reynolds looking mother f–ker") while he's sleeping. Yeah, sure.
So, a doctor examines Mike's full head of thick black hair, then determines he's not balding. What. A. Nail. Biter. But the scene wasn't all for naught – we learn Mike suffers from ear dandruff. As well as poor taste in best friends.
Last week, Lilly confronted Asa, wanting to know why she didn’t speak up in her favor when Mercedes “MJ” Javid claimed nobody on Shahs of Sunset is her friend. Asa took to her Bravo blog to share, “MJ actually said, ‘These people were my friends FIRST,’ which is the truth and doesn’t need defending.”
“Second Lilly and MJ were exchanging catty remarks, and I don’t see how this is anybody’s business but theirs,” added Asa. “How are you going to have a fight with someone and then blame the other people? I really wish Lilly would get more real about things.” That’s rich coming from the Persian Pop Priestess (which means what exactly?) who manufacturers Diamond Water (which does what better than regular water exactly?).
Last season on Shahs of Sunset, we saw Lilly's boyfriend of over ten years, Ali, refuse to move to L.A. to be with her. Needless to say, Lilly finally came to her senses and ended the troubled relationship for good.
Lilly recently revealed she's been dating a new man for almost two months.
