The Shahs of Sunset crew has had nothing but drama and bad news as of late. Former best friends, Reza Farahan and Mercedes “MJ” Javid, had a major falling out. It got so bad that Reza filed a restraining order against MJ’s husband, Tommy Feight. I don’t see that friendship being repaired in the upcoming season!
Coincidentally, there’s also a feud between Reza and Mike Shouhed. Apparently, Reza is none too pleased that his face is on one of the designs in Mike’s t-shirt line. No offense to Reza, but I don’t see a t-shirt with his face flying off shelves anytime soon. Even though it has been mostly doom and gloom, there is actually some good news to report! And it involves former Shahs cast member, Lilly Ghalichi.
Well, the 8th season of Shahs of Sunset is surely to be dramatic. If it ever gets an air date. It seems like the cast has been experiencing many conflicts within the group, to the point of serving time in the slammer for Tommy Feight. Mercedes “MJ” Javid’s husband got himself into some hot water when he took some old fashioned Queens logic out on Reza Farahan’s patio. Unfortunately, a bat was involved. Tommy got himself a mug shot and 10 days behind bars for his efforts.
But here’s the deal, it has been widely reported Tommy was merely sticking up for MJ. Reza allegedly did her real dirty after the birth of her son, Shams. Apparently he shared some sensitive information about MJ on social media, and Tommy wasn’t cool with it. Since this show does not have a vast history of thoughtful conversations followed by peaceful resolutions, Tommy took a typical route with his anger. Fortunately for Reza, he doesn’t have to worry about MJ or Tommy for a long time. And they certainly won’t be filming together.
Shahs of Sunset has been on hiatus for almost a year, but that doesn’t mean the cast has been laying low since then. Fans of the show followed Mercedes “MJ” Javid’s high risk pregnancy, which happily resulted in the birth of her son Shams in April with hubby Tommy Feight. Sadly, shortly after Sham’s birth, MJ’s bestie Reza Farahan took out a restraining order on Tommy after he allegedly threatened him and damaged some items on Reza’s patio. Tommy later pled no contest to charges of vandalism and trespassing and was sentenced to 10 days in jail. I guess MJ and Tommy won’t be asking Reza to babysit anytime soon!
As if all this drama wasn’t enough, Reza reportedly has threatened legal action against co-star Mike Shouhed regarding a t-shirt line. Whew–I can hardly keep up! Thankfully, not all of the Shah’s cast has been facing personal drama or legal entanglements since last season. Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi has also been busy, but on a more positive note. She announced in early October that she is expecting her first baby.
Is Reza Farahan mad at the world or just people he appears with on television? As you know, the Shahs of Sunset star isn’t getting along with former BFF, Mercedes “MJ” Javid. And that’s putting it mildly. After allegedly putting sensitive medical information of MJ’s on blast, the two have had a severe falling out. MJ’s husband got involved when he took his anger over Reza’s treatment of MJ out on Reza’s lawn furniture. That little display of loyalty got Tommy Feight ten days in the slammer.
While I think Tommy will do okay in his short stint behind bars, Reza has now turned his ire towards a different co-star. He is focusing on former BFF, Mike Shouhed. Does Reza’s lack of mustache make him more intolerable or what? In any case, Reza is seeing red over a t-shirt line Mike has featuring Reza’s likeness. Despite the fact that these shirts have been around for 4+ years, Reza has apparently been bitten by the cease and desist bug.
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.
Now, there’s also some social media drama and it’s not just between Reza and MJ. Now, Reza has issues with Mike Shouhed, Nema Vand, and Shervin Roohparvar.
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
Shahs of Sunset season eight hasn’t started yet, but you wouldn’t know it from all the drama that has already happened this year. Mercedes “MJ” Javid had a ton of complications during her pregnancy and almost suffered a miscarriage. Then, after she gave birth to her son, she had a near death experience.
When no one from the cast came to visit MJ in the hospital, one would assume her best friend Reza Farahan would be there. But even he wasn’t because their friendship is now over. MJ’s husband, Tommy Feight, allegedly vandalized Reza’s property. In turn, Reza filed a retraining order against him. This is just a taste of the drama that’s happened so far, and according to Reza, it gets even crazier.
The Shahs of Sunset cast are known for being rude, obnoxious, and possibly…hoodrats. You know, typical reality TV star behavior. But they also are known for being entrepreneurs and always seem to be onto the next big thing.
Last season was focused on the launch of Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s new business, a cannabis line called WuSah. Viewers saw GG proud to be a first time business owner. We also saw Nema Vand do all the
bitch work assistant work for her. That man can put together a mean powerpoint presentation. And now GG better get ready for some competition, because another Shahs cast member has a new business venture of their own.
