Season 7 of Shahs of Sunset is chock full of shade. Most of these cast members have been in each other’s lives since high school so they know exactly how to rile each other up and exactly where all of the bodies are buried. Three episodes in and there’s already a lot of drama between the cast members. Just imagine how the rest of the season will go. There’s no warming up with this cast. They just get into the dramatics right away.
During the last episode alone, Mercedes “MJ” Javid and Reza Farahan invited Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s ex-husband’s other ex-wife to a party…. and announced her presence in front of a crowd while they were on stage holding microphones. Talk about doing the most. Clearly they were determined to have some entertaining story lines this year and I’m not mad about it. Not only that but Reza majorly shaded Mike Shouhed for “only dating” hoes which did not sit well with Mike. Mike responded to that comment by shading Reza’s marriage when he and GG appeared on last night’s episode on Watch What Happens Live.
Right from the jump, Mike and GG started throwing shade at their costars. In a discussion about MJ and Tommy Feight’s new home, Andy Cohen asked Mike, “Do you live in the Hills too?” Instead of just saying “yes,” Mike told Andy, “I own mine.” Andy observed, “The shade has already started.” Yes, it has.
Then Andy addressed MJ and Reza bringing Shalom Yeroushalmi’s ex wife to MJ’s party and bombarding GG with his presence in front of a crowd. Even Andy thought that was a very shady tactic. He started to say, “I’ve seen some shady stuff on the show.” GG completed his sentence and added, “That was really a whole other level of low.” Pretty much everyone agrees with that assessment.
Andy said, “Are you surprised by MJ and Reza? They seemed a little gleeful about it.” GG asked, “Are you kidding me?” Mike remarked, “They plotted and planned this premeditated nonsense.” Clearly.
GG recapped, “They were on stage with a microphone in the middle of your wedding team announcement to say that when they know what I’m going through now legally with Shalom.”
Later in the episode, a Shahs of Sunset fan asked GG, “Are you really surprised that MJ didn’t ask you to be a part of her bridal party after you kept making digs about her marriage?” She explained, “Honestly, I think the way it just kind of came off was that there was a lot of jealousy because of the way I reacted. I was really reacting to the jabs she took at me the night before when she said I have ‘effed up values’….”
GG continued, “I had no jealousy. I really would not want to be a part of that wedding because were not that class. We haven’t been close for like two years.” Right. If they haven’t been close for two years, then she really shouldn’t be a part of the bridal party.
Another viewer asked Mike, “Do you feel bad jumping in when GG made the joke about Reza sleeping with MJ during his Man of Honor announcement?” Mike explained, “It was a really awkward moment and I was trying to make light of it and make it funny. It may have seemed like I was throwing jabs, but it was too much animosity happening so I was just trying to be funny.”
And then then Mike amped up the shade when a fan asked, “Do you agree with Reza’s assessment that you only like dating hoes?” Mike said, “No. Reza is full of crap and he loves to throw daggers. He should be careful because I know the kind of guys he likes to date and what he and Adam [Neely] do in private.” Wow. No one saw that comment coming. Reza and Adam have to be livid about what he was insinuating. I would have loved to watch Reza watching that Watch What Happens Live episode. Better yet, I would love to see the angry text Reza definitely sent Mike in response.
GG chimed in with, “I’m telling you, after Mike saw this episode he was just like ‘I did not expect him to say a word like that.’ ”
A caller asked, “Do you think Reza threw MJ under the bus for inviting Shalom’s ex to her party when he knew along and could have warned GG?” Without hesitation Mike answered, “Absolutely. That’s the way he operates. He doesn’t know how to play fair. He comes to war.”
Andy couldn’t help asking Mike, “What brought this on? I thought you guys were great.” Mike asked, “Me and Reza?” After Andy confirmed, Mike said, “I love Reza, but I’m not gonna sit here and sugarcoat what he’s done wrong.”
GG added, “When we find out people are saying things behind our back, it hurts.”
Another caller asked Mike, “What is your relationship with [ex-wife] Jessica [Parido] now and do you think MJ’s marriage will last longer?” Surprisingly enough, there’s no drama with Mike and Jessica. He shared, “Me and Jessica are in a great place. She reaches out to me when she needs help with things and when she needs advice. I give it to her and I help her. I love her and I want to see her do well.” He also confirmed, “She is seeing someone.”
Mike answered the second part of the question as well: “Let me answer that, absolutely because Tommy has seen MJ at her worst. It can’t get any worse than that. It’s only uphill from here. He loves her and I love him for loving her as much as he does.” We are in for a shade-filled season. That’s for sure.
