No pregnancy has caused as much of a stir as Asa Soltan Rahmati’s on this season of Shahs of Sunset. From Mercedes “MJ” Javid taking Asa’s pregnancy announcement as a “sign” that she herself should get pregnant to the entire cast questioning the conception of her then unborn baby, Asa’s pregnancy has provided more story lines than she ever has this whole time.
Shahs of Sunset
Does anyone else forget all about where we left off when there is a break in episodes on a show? I certainly do! I’m assuming it’s a survival technique so that I can sustain watching copious amounts of horrible reality TV and keep coming back for more, but regardless of the brain science behind it, that’s exactly what happened when I went to watch tonight’s episode of Shahs of Sunset. I forgot all about the 80s costume party/unofficial day of reckoning for Shervin Roohparvar and his playboy ways. Not that it matters because in tonight’s episode, the Shahs have already moved on to skewer someone else and the lucky winner is pregnant-and-don’t-you-forget-it Asa Soltan Rahmati.
Shahs of Sunset is back for an all new episode this week! And it’s going to be a doozy, as usual.
According to Bravo’s synopsis, we can look forward to this and more tonight: “As Reza and Adam find out if their swimmers are strong enough to produce a little Farahan of their own, MJ continues to question how Asa became pregnant. Though she’s not feeling supported by her friends, Asa holds an event to screen the video she filmed in Israel in the hopes of bringing everyone together with the message of peace. Mike pushes forward with his baby shoe venture in the hopes of making his mother proud, but the experience raises the question of when he’ll take a second chance at starting a family of his own.”
Are you ready for tonight’s episode? It starts at 8/7 C, so join us here in the comments to live-snark with us!

Now that we have gotten the whole cast trip/everyone has come together in a moment of bonding out of the way, it’s time for the Shahs of Sunset to tear it all down! If I had to sum up our band of merry Shahs in one word tonight, it would be
cheaters truth warriors. OK, well that’s two words but you get the idea – this gang just cannot stop until the truth,or whatever they happen to think is the truth, comes out. The focus of the truth warriors’ quest for answers is resident fly-under-the-radar-good-guy-to-the-point-of-boredom, Shervin Roohparvar, who is being accused of sleeping around with (GASP!) another Bravolebrity. And if you thought that his friends were going to let him get away with it, your guess is colder than one of Asa Soltan Rahmati’s frozen embryos. What about confronting him with this information in a really inappropriate time and place? Warmer. Then saying you will keep his secret? Warmer. Then inviting his supposed mistress to a party he will be at and confronting him with what he told you in confidence in front of all of his friends while demanding he admit it to everyone? Burning up! Can you guys handle the truth? Read on….
MJ Javid finds out some juicy gossip about Shervin‘s cheating ways and it spreads like wildfire to the rest of the crew, which then is outed at GG‘s 80’s roller skating party. Reza Farahan (who we can hardly look at in that horrible getup) forces GG to confirm whether the rumors about Shervin and Tara are true and it only gets sleazier from there.
Love her or hate her, everyone who watches Shahs of Sunset has to admit that Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi always brings the drama. She has beefed with every single cast member, and she’s even had drama with her own sister Leila Gharache in front of the cameras even though Leila’s never been a cast member.
On the total opposite end of the spectrum is Asa Soltan Rahmati, who has also been an original cast member the whole time, but has revealed next to no personal information about her life – something the cast members are finally starting to take issue with this season.
As the Shahs of Sunset continue their
politically incorrect spiritual tour of Israel, tonight’s episode is all about opening up and being honest within their friendships and lives. That’s a pretty tall order, especially for Asa “Did You Know I’m Having a Baby” Soltan Rahmati, who has been dodging questions about her personal life faster than you can say miracle baby. None of this is sitting well with Mercedes “MJ” Javid, who desperately wants to make a baby of her own and thinks the more she tells people, the more likely it is to happen. Everyone click yourselves into your overpriced strollers and hang on, because tonight is going to be a bumpy ride.
We rejoin the Shahs at the Western Wall, where they are all praying for what they want, except Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, who sits there fuming about being out of her element. Dressed in camo pants and an angry look on her face, she minds her own business but claims that an Israeli man harassed her by saying “jihad” to her. I guess the multiple camera pointed at her didn’t catch that part but of course, GG wouldn’t make something up now would she? *Pausing as I list in my head all the things GG has made up over the course of the show*
Can you believe this is only the 6th episode of Shahs of Sunset? It feels like the season has been going on and on for much longer than that! On tonight’s episode the cast is still in Israel and they are venting their frustrations at Asa Soltan Rahmati.
During the last part of their Israel trip, GG questions why they are even friends with Asa when she is so secretive about everything in her life. Asa makes a big reveal that has Mike disbelieving her and leaves MJ angry. During a group dinner on their last night in Israel, Asa reveals the gender of her baby.
