Anyone who has followed the Shahs of Sunset drama in the off-season has heard about the Reza Farahan vs. Mercedes “MJ” Javid feud. There’s been a lot of shade back and forth for months. Oh, and some legal drama.
Shahs of Sunset
The first season of the Temptation Island reboot was a hit. So, of course, the show is coming back for round 2! Plenty of reality TV stars got together to celebrate at the Temptation Island Season 2 premiere.
White Kanye himself, Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy DJ’ed the party. His girlfriend Raquel Leviss was also on hand to support. Imagine if those two were actually a part of the Temptation Island cast. That would be some must-see TV. The Bella Twins, Nikki and Brie Bella also hopped in the DJ booth at the event. Season 1 couple Shari Ligons and Javen Butler showed up to support Season 2. They are the only couple from the first season that is actually still together. They got engaged during the finale. Season 1’s Kaci Campbell was also there among the Real Housewives, members of Bachelor nation, and other reality TV stars. It is probably such a relief for Kaci to not be a part of the drama this time around. She really went through it last season.
The brunette beauty has led fans of the show on a turbulent journey. She has shared her love of knives, fights with her costars, and various business ventures. Now, it appears as though GG has found what she was looking for the entire time.
Shahs of Sunset has never been about the easy friendships of the cast. The show has basically been 7 seasons of a core group despising each other and then reconciling in 13 episodes of drunken antics and tears. In other words, perfect programming for Bravo. Part of the glue that ties these friends together is Reza Farahan and best friend, Mercedes “MJ” Javid. I suppose I should say “former best friend“. Over the years we have watched MJ and Reza squabble in various battles. Sometimes volatile, often motivated by alcohol, but always coming back together in the end.
Part of friendship is sharing big life events with each other, right? MJ and her husband, Tommy Feight, had a hell of a time conceiving a child. After successfully getting pregnant via IVF, MJ’s journey to motherhood was fraught with medical issues. MJ was placed on bedrest, she was at high risk for miscarriage, and she almost lost her life after finally giving birth. Somewhere along the way, Reza and MJ’s friendship began to break down. When Reza allegedly decided to share some sensitive medical information about MJ, Tommy’s loyal husband instincts took over. After Tommy sent “a message” to Reza in the form of killing his geraniums, Reza took action. Now we learn the price Tommy has to pay for rearranging Reza’s lanai.
I don’t know what it is, but reality TV is a relationship killer. For every wedding
paid by Bravo, there are just as many divorces and break ups. And it’s never pretty. Just look at Real Housewives of Orange County’s Gina Kirschenheiter and Shannon Beador.
And unfortunately, that bad luck continues even if they are no longer on reality TV. The latest casualty is Shahs of Sunset alum Lilly Ghalichi. Hey, not everyone can be like Vanderpump Rules stars Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd. #relationshipgoals
It seems like Southern Charm star Craig Conover is finally over the breakup with Naomie Olindo. Now, I’m just wondering what he’s going to do with that personalized pillow he sewed for Penelope, the daughter he hoped to have with her.
Long before Naomie came into the future, Craig had his sights set on Kathryn Dennis. In fact, he’s the one who actually brought her around during filming for Season 1.
Fortunately Unfortunately for Craig, Shep Rose pulled robbery move and hooked up with Kathryn instead. Eventually, Kathryn had two kids (and dramatic custody hearings) with Thomas Ravenel. And somewhere before and after all that, Kathryn hooked up with a glasses-wearing Whitney Sudler-Smith. But what about Craig? Remember they “got lost” during a cast trip a couple seasons ago? What actually happened then?
Wow, Mercedes “MJ” Javid has had quite a year. After the struggle to get pregnant, MJ and husband, Tommy Feight, finally achieved success with the aid of IVF. The Shahs of Sunset star gave birth to her first and possibly only child. Baby Shams was born April 2019 and the couple immediately fell in love. Unfortunately, it wasn’t all unicorns and rainbows after he was born. MJ suffered life-threatening complications and had a near-death experience while in the hospital.
As if that wasn’t enough, the streets started talking about BFF Reza Farahan not visiting his ride or die after she actually almost died. In fact, none of the Shahs cast visited MJ. Obviously something happened to trigger the downfall of their friendship. Details were sparse until news broke that Tommy and his bat decided to ALLEGEDLY redecorate Reza’s backyard. After issuing a restraining order against Tommy, it seemed the friendships were over for good. So did MJ and Reza ever make up? Can Reza forgive Tommy for playing stickball with his potted plants? MJ gives us an update.
The jackhole of the
century year month week goes to BravoCon .Is anyone else still frustrated after attempting to buy BravoCon tickets on Tuesday morning. Did anyone else get there at 9:59 ready to purchase a three-day pass at 10 AM only to find out that they were all purchased by scalpers? Seriously, anyone? Is anyone else still upset about this? Hopefully, it’s not just me.
How many three-day passes did they sell? Three? It seems like no one got them. Or at least that’s how it feels scrolling through Twitter. There is some (alleged) hope to buy a one-day ticket, but that’s bound to be another mess, unfortuantely. What about the resale tickets? That’s not happening either.
