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.
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 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.
Life seemed to be going smoothly for Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid. She got married to the man of her dreams, Tommy Feight. Then she and Tommy wanted to have a baby, so MJ went through IVF and was able to get pregnant. All good news, right?
A few months into her pregnancy, MJ opened up on social media. She revealed that she was put on mandatory bedrest. This happened during Tommy’s birthday no less. More recently, things got worse again for MJ and she ended up in the hospital.
Last season of Shahs of Sunset ended on a sour note for cast member Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. During the reunion, viewers watched GG’s relationship with the cast fall apart. It turned into a shouting match between her and the rest of the group. The fights were one right after the other.
Nema Vand showed texts where GG threatened to use his sister’s hand to sodomize him. How very Stassi Schroeder of her. Then Reza Farahan and Mercedes “MJ” Javid admitted they had invited GG’s ex-husband to the reunion to get his side of the story. GG stormed off and then fought with Destiney Rose. Do things turn around for GG in the upcoming season?
The Real Housewives were all about that mother/daughter time this past week. Real Housewives of New Jersey OG Teresa Giudice celebrated her daughter Gia Giudice’s eighteenth birthday! Yes, you read that correctly. Gia Giudice is eighteen years old. How old do you feel now? Personally, I’m feeling ancient right about now.
Meanwhile, Teresa’s costar Danielle Staub went to a play with her daughter Jillian Staub. Additionally, Kyle Richards posed for a mother/daughter photo with Sophia Umansky. Then, Vicki Gunvalson got her daughter Briana Culberson to wear matching pajamas on a cruise.
Then, there were some sweet son photos as well. Bachelor alum Sean Lowe hit the beach with his sons Samuel and Isaiah in Hawaii. Also, Dallas Housewife Stephanie Hollman shared a photo with her. Scott Disick posted a photo cuddling with his youngest son Reign.
In other reality star updates, braces are all the rage these days. Kelly Dodd and her ex Michael Dodd took their daughter Jolie to get braces. Yes, they even marked the occasion with a family photo. Which, is actually pretty sweet. 90 Day Fiance alum Anfisa Nava showed off her new braces.
Stassi Schroeder, Erika Jayne, Kathryn Dennis, and Bethenny Frankel, struck a pose and showed off some chic outfits. Then there are other reality stars who cropped out their outfits and went for the selfies. Luann de Lesseps, D’Andra Simmons, LeeAnne Locken all posted selfies this week.
And of course, as per usual, there were plenty of reality star couple photos on Instagram. Margaret Josephs and husband Joe Benigno went to Miami. Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss posed for a couples selfie with their men Mike Hill and Todd Tucker.

It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.
Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador followed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.
Captain Lee Rosbach and Katie Chastain attended an event in Florida with Below Deck alum Connie Arias. Josiah Carter shared a picture of himself Ashton Pienaar, Ross Inia, and Adrian Martin. Meanwhile, the two most controversial cast members (who haven’t been fired yet) Rhylee Gerber and Laura Betancourt took a selfie while kayaking.
Southern Charm stars Cameran Eubanks, Craig Conover, Chelsea Meissner, and Whitney Sudler-Smith enjoyed some quality time. Naomie Olindo shared an “after” photo following some Botox injections. Kathryn Dennis slayed in a hot pink outfit at her brother’s wedding.
90 Day Fiance couples Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores, Ashley Martson and Jay Smith, and David Toborowsky and Annie Suwan let us all know that their relationships are still going strong with some photos.

During the last Shahs of Sunset season, Nema Vand was all about Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. Has he not seen this show? Or has he seen this show and he still thought GG was his dream girl? This girl collects knives, has a defunct hair extensions business, and she wore her ex’s engagement ring the entire season. The list goes on.
Nevertheless, he was just crazy about her from the start. He tried to kiss her even though he had a girlfriend. Nema broke up with that girl. Then, he continued to support GG’s dream of owning a cannabis business. It was actually really sweet. GG was happy that a nice guy thought so highly of her and believed in her. That lasted for about a minute. Then things turned nasty and Nema has the screenshots to prove it.
