Shahs of Sunset

Shahs-Of-Sunset-Reunion-Nema-Vand

Even though almost no one seemed to know who Meghan Markle was before she got with Prince Harry, but, now, people are coming out of the woodwork, sharing their associations with her. It’s not just her paparazzi-calling dad or her hating half-sister.

But, at least this time the comments are actually pretty nice. It turns out that Shahs of Sunset star Nema Vand used to hang out with Meghan when they were teens in California.

Shahs Of Sunset Star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi Gives Birth To Baby Boy

Congratulations are in order for Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi. Fans of the show are watching her difficult journey to motherhood this season. GG has been an open book about the ups and downs of using IVF and a sperm donor to conceive.

But earlier this week, GG gave birth to her baby boy Elijah!

Kasey Cohen makes shocking revelations about Joao Franco

Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.

Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.

Shahs Of Sunset Cast Member Ali Ashouri Files Restraining Order Against Reza Farahan

How is everyone feeling about this season of Shahs of Sunset? It feels like we waited forever just to have this season. Now that it’s here, I’m not really sure what to think. The show feels heavy and disjointed to me. Longtime cast member Golnesa Gharachedaghi has been on an IVF journey that ended in heartbreak. On a positive note, GG has gone on to have a successful pregnancy and is currently waiting the birth of her first child. Mike Shouhed is busy with another sure to fail business venture, which happens every single season. Nema Vand? What is he bringing to the table this season? Shervin Roohparvar has been downgraded to a friend of, despite being in a ton of group scenes. #justiceforshervin. The only drama that is being brought to the table is between Reza Farahan and his best friend of 30 years, Mercedes “MJ” Javid.

As a quick recap, MJ is being accused of conspiring to take down Reza and Adam Neely’s marriage by spreading rumors of Adam’s transgressions. According to my least favorite cast member, Destiney Rose, MJ put “friend of”, Ali Ashouri up to confronting Reza about the allegations. Those allegations include strip Jenga and inappropriate text messages that Ali describes as sexual harassment.

The whole thing blew up after a meeting between Ali and Reza, orchestrated by Destiney. Reza threw a glass of water in Ali’s face and MJ was somehow blamed for the whole thing. A huge (and controversial) fight erupted between Reza and MJ at a filmed pool party. This lead Reza to post a nastygram on social media about MJ, including her private medical history. Then her husband Tommy Feight went and broke some planters at Reza and Adam’s backyard, which resulted in a restraining order. Whew. Are you guys still following?

This season of Shahs of Sunset is just so messy. And really, it’s just so sad. It’s tough watching Reza Farahan and Mercedes Javid lose thirty years of friendship. The whole storyline is just so convoluted as well.

MJ allegedly had a hand in those rumors that Reza’s husband Adam Neely hosted naked Jenga games. During this same time period, MJ nearly died from some serious complications while she gave birth to her son. She is upset that Reza didn’t show up at the hospital. He posted some screenshots saying she told him not to go. This whole thing is so confusing. What’s true? What is just for a storyline? Well, regardless of all the confusing details, there’s one thing many fans are sure of: Reza went way too far during the last Shahs of Sunset episode. Reza told MJ, “Your uterus exploded because you had ten abortions.” Wow. What the f—.

Joao Franco Below Deck Mediterranean

Joao Franco’s first season on Below Deck Mediterranean did not inspire a lot of confidence in his ability for a respectful romantic relationship.  His constant flirtations with Kasey Cohen while wooing a smitten Brooke Laughton was cringe-worthy at best.  Their relationship chugged along for a bit after the season ended.  Brooke went to visit Joao’s family in Zimbabwe, which seemed promising, but she ultimately broke up with him shortly thereafter.

Of course that all played out in the Bravolebrity spotlight.  Since then, Joao has been keeping his relationship with girlfriend Michelle Dicu relatively private, except for a few Instagram posts.  But on Friday, Joao did share some very exciting news with his followers.

Shahs Of Sunset Star Golnesa Gharachedaghi Reveals Child’s Name & Sex

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.

Who else is excited that the newest season of Shahs of Sunset has finally arrived? Since we last saw the Shahs crew, there’s been one bombshell story in the news after the other. I’m not sure if they are even going to be able to fit all of the drama into one season. 

For starters, Mercedes “MJ” Javid had a miscarriage scare and a near death experience after the birth of her son. She also had a major falling out with her best friend Reza Farahan, which might have prompted her husband Tommy Feight to allegedly vandalize Reza’s home. And if you think that’s crazy, according to Mike Shouhed, we haven’t seen anything yet.
