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.
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.
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.
While LeeAnne Locken has had some up and down relationships with her Real Housewives of Dallas costars. However, it seems like things are going a lot better with Real Housewives from different TV shows. Specifically, Erika Jayne. No word on how she feels about Erika Girardi. Lame joke, I’ve moved on.
Recently, LeeAnne dished on how Erika reached out to her during a tough time when none of her RHOD costars did. She also talked about Sonja Morgan and Tinsley Mortimer’s fight during Pride Weekend in New York this past summer. LeeAnne even theorized about why she would not be accepted by the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast.
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.
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.
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.
Something tells me the feud between Shahs of Sunset’s Mercedes Javid and Reza Farahan is not about to end any time soon.
Especially since her husband Tommy Feight has pleaded not guilty to claims he vandalized and trespassed on Reza’s property.
