That same back and forth drama has also crossed over to Shahs of Sunset alum Lilly Ghalichi. She may not be on the show anymore, but her real life drama is mirroring that of her castmates. Just last year, Lilly’s husband, Dara Mir, filed for divorce. However, the couple reconciled and Lilly called it off. Lilly and Dara made it known that nothing was standing in their way as a couple when they were caught kissing passionately at their daughter’s birthday party. But, all is not as it seems as some sad news about the couple has recently come to light.
Last week we finally got the long over due first part of the Shahs of Sunset reunion. It was good to see the cast back together again, and hear their thoughts on the latest season. Noticeably absent however, was newcomer Sara Jeihooni. I guess Sara’s one storyline of being upset her younger brother hooked up with Destiney Rose wasn’t enough to merit her joining the reunion. Better luck next year, Sara!
Still, the rest of the cast was on hand to bring the drama. Mercedes Javid walked off at one point, and Golnesa Gharachedaghi heckled Nema Vand. I guess even motherhood can’t make GG more mature. The main highlight of the night though was the season long feud between MJ, Reza Farahan, and his husband, Adam Neely, over whether MJ encouraged Ali Ashouri to confront Reza with the NSFW texts Adam had sent him. And things got even more heated between MJ and the cast during part two of the reunion.
The most recent Shahs of Sunset season centered around the Reza Farahan vs. Mercedes “MJ” Javid feud. They both said and did enough horrible things to each other that the cast seemed to completely overlook Adam Neely’s shadiness with the sexting/Jenga of it all.
Their beef took up so much screen time that we didn’t get nearly enough Sara Jeihooni. She joined the show as a friend of Reza’s and an ex-girlfriend of R. Kelly’s. Yes, that R. Kelly. Aside from watching Sara cringe while Destiney Rose tongued down Sara’s brother in Las Vegas, we didn’t get a ton of Sara-centered storylines.
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.
Shahs of Sunset fans are watching Golnesa Gharachedaghi’s journey to become a mom this season. It has been a long process for GG, who ultimately used a sperm donor and IVF to conceive.
Over the weekend, GG had a baby shower at her home to announce her baby’s sex and name.
It’s been way too long since Shahs of Sunset has been on my TV. It’s kind of weird timing for the show to return since the Academy Awards are on tonight as well, but I am thankful for my DVR.
After last season’s dramatic reunion, Reza Farahan and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi decide to make up for the millionth time. However, GG and Destiney Rose are still at odds, not that I am at-all-invested in anything Destiney has going on since I feel like we barely got to know her last season.
