Shahs of Sunset

Shahs of Sunset only has one more episode left, but it looks like the drama is raging on!

Bravo needs to get a camera crew over to the home of Sammy Younai’s parents because some good reality TV is unfolding – no script necessary!  Sammy Tweeted earlier tonight that people are threatening his folks and all because of Reza Farahan’s sexual orientation.

Sammy took his outrage to Twitter and is hoping that someone might be able to help solve the mystery of who the culprits are.

“2psycho’s went to my parents home last night and threaten them, if anyone knows anything please let me know.  A police report, cops, cyber search of twitter and face book. Crazy f*****s where pissed I was friends with a gay guy.”

Speaking of Reza, he’s been posting some hilarious “Reza Rants” videos on his YouTube channel.  Even though “so you want me to be your gay bestie” is one of my favorites, he did share a serious message for the “It Gets Better” initiative that’s worth a look. Reza says that as a young man he felt like he wasn’t “made right”, but something his mom did changed his whole world.   You can see the video below.

Sunday night on WWHL, Mercedes “MJ” Javid said that fame is going to Reza’s head.  Reza does seem to be the breakout star of the show, but the entire cast is finding a way to cash in like a Kardashian.  Asa Rahmati has been pimping out her music,  Reza is running with the rockstar status of his mustache (it has its own Twitter account!), and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi is working on a line of hair extensions and designing clothes, but not for ants or ugly people!

GG says that she’s trying to branch out, maybe enough so that she doesn’t have to rely on dad for a paycheck anymore!  “I’m trying to really make something of myself.”  Golnesa says that she’s not trying to be the next Kim Kardashian, but she’s up for new opportunities: “Whatever presents itself, if it seems safe like ‘Shahs of Sunset’ which wasn’t exploiting us, it was just fun, I’d be (up for it).”

So far there’s no word on a second season being greenlit, but the first “season” (aka six episdes) did so well that I can’t imagine Bravo not going ahead with it.  GG says that she doesn’t mind the way she was portrayed in these intro episodes.  “I’ve gotten a lot of feedback and I feel like that comes with the territory. I could have been a nun and they would have knocked me for being a nun.”

Nuns don’t carry 8″ blades and taser guns.  Just sayin’.

Last night’s episode of Shahs of Sunset gave us a glimpse into Reza Farahan’s daddy issues, Sammy Younai’s creative math abilities, and Golnessa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s aversion to poor people’s clothes.  Also, what happens in Vegas comes back to haunt you, repeatedly.

The episode starts out with GG and Asa Soltan Rahmati taking a stab at being friends.  Asa decides she wants to expand GG’s horizons (in case daddy really does cut off her credit cards?) and takes her to her favorite resale clothing boutique, Decades.  GG admits that she’s not a fan of vintage clothing and says that you just can’t get rid of the stench from “used clothing”.  In GG’s world, vintage = peasant rash.

ASA and GG dish about Mercedes “MJ” Javid’s rude behavior, showing up three hours late for the party GG threw for her parents’ 40th anniversary.  GG is happy that Asa agrees with her that it was disrespectful.  MJ was right last week, the wrath of GG IS coming.

We get to meet Reza’s mom! He explains how hard she worked and gave him unconditional love after his dad left. Reza talks about his upcoming trip to NY to see his dad for the first time in several years.  His mom brings out some pictures from Reza’s childhood.  Reza’s mom was Muslim and his dad was Jewish, which was a scandalous relationship at the time.  His dad had to convert to Islam and his family was furious.  Reza’s parents never stood a chance because they had so much pressure coming from both sides of the family.

Over at GG’s condo, she and her friend Tahira get ready for girls night.  Here comes the crazy! You know Girls Night in GG’s hood is code for Golnesa Gone Loco up in someone’s face, at some point in the evening.  GG vows that won’t be the case and if there’s any sign of impending drama, she swears it’ll be the end of her night.  She doesn’t put that in writing.

We’re still bringing you the weekly photo roundup in a short bit, but first wanted to put up some shots from last night.  The stars of Bravo gathered in NYC for the Bravo All-Star Party special edition of Watch What Happens Live.  A slew of the celebs were spotted leaving their hotels on their way over to the event, so we wanted to share!

It looks like Ryan Seacrest has another hit on his hands as the numbers for newcomer Shahs of Sunset continue to climb.  In its premiere week, SoS nabbed an impressive 1.1 million viewers, beating out Bethenny Ever After, which came in with 1.02 million! 

Reza Farahan (how much do you love him already!?) and company must be doing something right because last week–only its third episode–saw a jump to 1.5 million; a 37% increase in total viewers.  Ryan trained this new cast well.  And you know what that means? More trashtastic reality TV coming our way…

With four of the main cast members (Mike Shouhed, MJ, Reza, and Sammy Younai) all involved in real estate in one form or another, it’s not surprising that we’re getting a chance to see inside of some fabulous Beverly Hills homes. And let’s face it, since we didn’t win the Mega Millions jackpot, this is as close as we may get to them.

In a recent interview, Mercedes “MJ” Javid explains why she loves the sometimes over-the-top mansions (aka “Persian Palaces”). “It’s in our blood — Cyrus the Great and things like that. Plus, it’s practical, too. Dynasty [the TV show] is the quintessential Persian lifestyle. Every Persian parent dreams of having a house the size of that mansion so all of their kids and grandchildren can live under one roof.”

In other Shahs of Sunset news, Asa Rahmati, who has gifted us with a few peeks at her tunes “Tehrangeles” and “Diamond Water”, made a video for her newest song, “Gold”.  Asa enlisted Reza to help her out with this latest artistic project. Watch around the 1:15 mark as Reza pops up wearing nothing but his porn ‘stache and a gold chain from the waist up.

In tonight’s episode, Asa will get a chance to share her newest single with a big time producer.

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta featured a lot of bad evening attire. Whew. That mess of bad fashion at the anniversary party was so distracting, was it not? We also got some family drama, and Kim playing her new role of lady of the rented mcmansion. Oh, and Phaedra embalmed a dummy!

Things begin with Kim storming around her garage, ordering Sweetie and her father around under the guise of organizing before Kroy comes home. Kim is quite the hoarder collector! Kim claims she’s helping with the shuffling of boxes across the garage, but she’s really just barking orders. Sweetie threatens to call Clark Howard, who is some guy on the local news that exposes employers who mistreat their employees. Yes, Sweetie needs to get on that call.

Sweetie takes a cigarette break and Kim freaks out, chasing her all over the house bellowing and threatening. #timemanagement. Kim explains that Sweetie has become more of a friend than employee, and doesn’t take her job seriously. Is it because Kim has become more of a joke than ever? Although I agree, Sweetie needs to do her job or quit. Kim’s father tells her she needs yoga, she misses the point and says she’s already lost weight. I think he meant she needs to calm down. BTW – is anyone else not surprised Big Poppa is allegedly broke after seeing all that loot?

I have such a love/hate relationship with Bravo. I love to hate it. I hate how much I love it. Given the network’s newest brainchild, Shahs of Sunset, I am hatefully smitten. I CANNOT WAIT to watch. In a recent press release, Bravo fills in viewers on what is sure to be our next very guilty pleasure.

The premise of what is being touted as a “docu-series” follows the stories of six Persian-American friends in Los Angeles. The kicker? While we are used to watching beautiful young people navigate friendships, social scenes, and budding careers, this program also focuses on a different aspect of the soon-to-be introduced group. The series will watch its cast members as they work towards successful positions in California while balancing the family and traditions of their old-world community.

The show will film the young men and women as they create individual identities and new opportunities while facing the pressures put upon them by family to settle down within their culture. We will join the cast mates as they socialize with the creme de la creme, shop at Pretty Women style Rodeo Drive boutiques, and bypass the red velvet rope at the hottest clubs. However, the most intriguing part of the show (for me) deals with Bravo newbies juggling these opulent scenarios with the traditional customs of their family’s values.

Even better? The king of reality televisionRyan Seacrest himself–is jumping E!’s ship expanding his network-ial (new word) horizons to produce the Bravo show along side Adam Sher and Pete Tartaglia. Even though I am strongly opposed to all things Kardashian, I am quite on board with all things Seacrest. It’s quite the conundrum, but I’m working my way through it…with counseling…from Andy Cohen. Don’t I wish? Read on to see the bios of the stars of Shahs of Sunset!

Set your DVRs and TIVOs dear readers! Shahs of Sunset premieres on Bravo Sunday, March 11 at 10 PM ET.

In case you were planning on enriching your life culturally, you can put those plans on hold! Bravo has released their upcoming schedule of new and returning drugs, television shows!

The most shocking on this list of programs is the inclusion of Millionaire Matchmaker, which apparently will be returning for its sixth, yes, SIXTH season of awful, offensive, stilted, garbage. There is apparently no shortage of professional extras willing to get berated by Patti Stanger or millionaires willing to pimp out their businesses. Bravo has yet to announce a premiere date but it’s slated to return this year.

Also returning: the strangely charming Pregnant In Heels, Million Dollar Listing, Bethenny Ever After on February 20 (but we already knew that) and Inside The Actor’s Studio on January 31, the Bravo show that refuses to die despite a million Housewives franchises. Of course, in case you’ve been busy living life Tabatha Takes Over started its fourth season on January 10th, with Tabatha taking over more than just salons, but every kind of business she can find.

Slated to premiere in the spring are the following shows with my very own synopsis! If no premiere date is listed that means the show will air sometime in the spring.

  • Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis (Premieres March 14) — Jeff ran out of houses to flip, so now he is taking Jenni and Zoila on the road to redecorate people’s homes and lives. Because when you think life coach, you think an anal-retentive control freak who has alienated almost all of his loved ones! (Just kidding Jeff, I love you!)
  • The Kandi Factory (premieres March 4) — Another housewife gets her own spin-off! This time around, Kandi Burruss will show us inside her songwriting empire as she mentors young artists. And she’ll probably talk about vibrators a lot.
  • The Ring Leader (premieres February 27) — You know what we need more of on tv? Shows about wedding planning! Here’s another one, following around wedding planner Kristin Banta.
  • Shah’s of Sunset – Yet another attempt at the Miami Social/that weird Dallas show about rich young people. Only this time, with Persian-Americans.
  • Love Broker — One matchmaker on Bravo isn’t enough, now there must be two! This time, the show will follow Lori Zaslow.
  • Million Dollar Listing New York – The same douches you’ve come to expect on Million Dollar Listing, but in New York this time.
  • Around The World In 80 Plates - If Top Chef and Amazing Race had a baby. Or, as the press release says, “12 chefs competing in a culinary race across 10 countries in 44 days.”
  • Kathy — The original Bravo-lebrity, Kathy Griffin gets her very own talk show as well as two comedy specials to premiere in the spring.
  • Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding –In my mind, this show would be titled, “Deleted Scenes from this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta” but apparently Bravo thinks you care enough about Kim Zolciak to watch her plan her wedding to football player Kroy Bierman.
