Shahs of Sunset had a very dramatic season. Mercedes Javid and Reza Farahan’s feud just kept getting worse. Reza and his husband Adam Neely have legal issues with MJ’s husband Tommy Feight. In case you forgot, Tommy vandalized their backyard and the whole incident was captured by security cameras. Destiney Rose hooked up with Sara Jeihooni’s brother.
Mike Shouhed declared (again) that he found the love of his life. We witnessed Golnesa Gharachedaghi’s heartbreaking journey to conceive, which included a miscarriage. There was a lot to discuss, but it never happened. Every other Bravo show got an Andy Cohen-hosted reunion via Zoom, but there was nothing for Shahs of Sunset. But don’t worry, you guys. There’s a very delayed reunion special on the way.
Page Six reported that the cast will tape a reunion special that will air in July. However, there’s no concrete reason to explain what took so long. Sure, there’s a pandemic, but that didn’t stop Bravo from filming reunions for Summer House, Real Housewives of Atlanta, and Below Deck Sailing Yacht.
It’s clear that Bravo doesn’t support Shahs of Sunset as much as it could. The show is barely promoted. Plus, it got moved to the Friday night slot, which is the kiss of death for TV shows. But, at least everyone was locked down in quarantine to tune in live.
At this point, Bravo is probably running out of already-filmed shows. So, it’s not surprising that they’d want to film a Shahs reunion. But, why now? Why not do this right after the season ended?
Earlier this month, GG told Page Six, “It’s a blessing in disguise. This COVID-19 thing, in so many ways, it has been a blessing that it made us get this whole massive delay on a reunion because now I get to not be pregnant and I get to bring out the person in me that a lot of people are very familiar with, you know, because there has been a lot of — a lot of — behind the scenes s–t going on. And I’m just happy to not be pregnant so if we do have that reunion anytime soon, I can really serve it.”
